“Victor was there for us 1000% throughout the entire process. He is a great friend and we have already had our family members use him for their home buying as well. He made a stressful process easy to get through with solid advice the whole way.” – Pulak Patel
What does providing exceptional customer service really mean? To a Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent it means making the process of buying or selling a home easy, enjoyable and positive. It means providing new homebuyer education courses, working with the most caring and knowledgeable agents in the industry and continuing to go above and beyond for each and every client no matter the market conditions.
It means forming trusting relationships when working with clients with specific criteria for their home and neighborhood needs. Jay and Pulak Patel are both doctors and needed to be near their respective hospitals. With specific criteria, they turned to Savvy + Co. agent and co-owner Victor Ahdieh to help them find their perfect home in Dilworth.

Time to make a move
Jay and Pulak have lived in different cities all over the country but landed in Charlotte for their residencies. With their residencies completed and the birth of their daughter, they decided to stay in Charlotte long-term.
“We were living in a condo but knew we would need more space,” said Pulak. “We wanted to stay in the central Charlotte area, particularly in Dilworth. We also knew that we wanted a home that we could grow into with our family.”
When the Patels were ready to look for a home, they knew they wanted to work with Savvy + Co.’s Victor Ahdieh. Jay had worked with Victor years prior but had decided then that it was not the right time to buy a home. Over the years their friendship grew, and they knew when it was time to look for a home for their growing family that Victor was the right agent for them.
Victor has been an agent for over 15 years and has been with Savvy + Co. Real Estate since its inception. Agent, broker, and owner, Victor is known for his patience and his keen eye and taste.
“We felt reassured that Victor would help us through any hurdles that came up along the way. We can’t imagine why anyone would buy a home without a specialist like Victor. He is the kind of broker who asks after our family and checks in long after we closed on our property.”
Convenience is Key
“Since Pulak and Jay were first time home buyers, and since both are medical professionals, they needed to be near their respective hospitals. Any of the in-town neighborhoods would have been fine, but the vibe of Dilworth resonated with them,” said Victor.
The Patels were open to suggestions but knew they wanted to be located near Uptown and in a walkable area. With its proximity to Uptown, high walkability score, and a variety of restaurants, Dilworth was the perfect area.
“We started searching online and looking at a few homes. Once Victor saw the things we did and did not like, he made recommendations for potential options. We looked at several homes in person and appreciated Victor’s patience throughout the whole process.”
Patience Pays Off
After looking at about 10 homes, Pulak and Jay would tour a new construction home that was larger than previously wanted. Although it was not love at first sight for the Patels, Victor knew better.
“Pulak and Jay knew they would entertain family and friends at their next home, so it was important to have an open floor plan bathed in natural light that included several different spaces to entertain guests. This home was a great fit.”
It would be their second tour of the home that the Patels fell in love with the property. The home checked off all the boxes, and they came to realize the larger size was perfect for their growing family. The only problem was that there were other potential buyers interested in the property.
Victor advised the Patels to make a competitive offer just before this new construction property was complete. The aggressive approach worked!
The Importance of Hiring a Knowledgeable Agent
Having an agent who will help you throughout the process is an asset during a pivotal and often stressful time.
“Victor was such an integral part of this process, as he deftly navigated the ins and outs of working with a builder and ensuring every “i” was dotted and every “t” was crossed. He was there for us 1000% throughout the entire process.”
Victor’s fondest memory with the Patels included their “discussions of how to fill all the square footage” of their new home and meeting Wally, the puppy they adopted.
Thanks to Victor’s help and guidance, Jay and Pulak are happy to have finally found the perfect new home for their growing family!
