Savvy Solutions

What if you could search all properties in North Texas with refreshed data as often as the MLS allows (currently every 15 minutes)?  What if you could:

  • create keyword searches to find homes by city, school district, neighborhood, master planned communities, or homes with certain features like a golf course lot, pools, etc.
  • create real-time new listing notifications (email and text) that meet your criteria allowing you to beat other buyers to seeing the latest homes
  • use lifestyle tools to assist in evaluating areas by indicators important to you
  • fully preview homes online and organize them into favorites while making notes
  • had the ability to include and collaborate with others on your home search team

That would be home searching at it’s SAVVIEST… and it’s all waiting for you here!

Jeff & Sharon will partner with you on all aspects of the home buying process so you understand each step. Feel confident knowing that experts are providing insights on potential homes and neighborhoods, negotiating offers on your behalf, advising on all the “nuts and bolts” of home buying, introducing you to other professionals and contractors that can make your purchase and move easier and taking care of the fine details. We have you covered!

The real-estate market has changed but the way residential real-estate services are priced has largely stayed the same for decades.   That doesn’t make a lot of sense to us at Savvy Realty.  For our Savvy Sellers, we replaced the (not fixed, but common) 6% realty commission with a lower set fee for Savvy Realty + your choice of compensation to offer the agent that brings your buyer.   This saves you money by leaving thousands of dollars of your home equity where you want it most…with you.

We have active home search data on over 2,000 home buyers and this capability and data are unique to our company.  Only our team can use this database on your behalf to reach out to home buyers directly saving you time on market by creating upfront demand and interest.

Savvy Realty stays on the forefront of real estate market research, ensuring that every aspect of your sale meets current trends—leading to a faster closing. We will create a personalized selling strategy for your home.  This includes in-depth analysis of the selling environment, timing, pricing, staging, professional photography and marketing.

Jeff and Sharon have closed on more than 1,000 homes in the Dallas area. With 20 years of experience selling homes, you can be assured that every aspect of the selling process will be handled professionally. This includes property positioning, negotiations, contract creation and management, and more. Let us go to work for you!
