A native of Charlotte, Anne attended Providence Day School for 13 years. After her senior year, she followed in her parent’s footsteps, attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, and spent the next four years cheering on the Gamecocks. At USC, Anne studied at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications and received a BA in Public Relations and a minor in Psychology.
Upon graduation, she returned to Charlotte and worked at Premier, Inc. as a Specialist in Admin/Sales Operations. A few years later, Anne made the decision to transition from healthcare sales and follow her passion by pursuing a career in real estate. She joined HM Properties in 2016.
Anne and her husband live in the SouthPark area of Barclay Downs with their English Bulldog, Gus. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, and forcing Gus to go on walks at Freedom Park.
Anne was absolutely fantastic from the beginning of the processes to the end. As a first-time home buyer, I was worried that an agent may either be too push or too hands-off. Anne did an amazing job of finding a happy medium there by providing her blunt and honest opinion and then stepping back to let me make my own informed decisions. Her excellent market knowledge became obviously quickly and her poise and professionalism throughout the process was impressive. I 100% plan on using her as an agent again in the future and will recommend her to others.Chris L
Anne was incredible from the start – from explaining the house building process to buying our first home. She was knowledgeable honest and had great communication with us. We are so grateful she was our agent and will be recommending her to our friends.Alex & Meredith P
Anne sold my condo two years ago and had been non-stop looking for my next home and always keeping me updated. She is beyond dedicated. Anne should have her own team! She should train others to have that same drive. Her drive and passion in my home buying process made it seem as if she was buying this home for herself. I appreciated it so much!Happy Client A
Anne and I were friends in high school so we felt comfortable with her from the beginning. She was amazing! She worked so hard for us, was always honest and always on top of it. We felt like she truly had our best interest in mind throughout. We would comment to each other about how good Anne was at her job many times throughout everything and we really believe it!Jessie & Steve Z

Anne was absolutely wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and patient in her explanations. She was quick to respond and made the overall home buying process easy and stress-free. We would recommend her to everyone!Audrey & Jonathan T
Anne was highly recommended to us by her previous clients. We would not have found our current home without her. Her persistent determination, market intelligence and work ethic shined through at every stage of the buying process. Her expertise and guidance is second to none and we were/are thankful to have her by our side.Jesse & Danielle Z
This was our first home and Anne did an amazing job explaining the process to us. I constantly recommend Anne even if the person already has an agent. My wife and I have both known Anne for a long time so we instantly felt comfortable with her and knew her intimate knowledge of South Charlotte would serve us well. She was informative, punctual and honest. Our process was a bit hectic because of the market forces, but Anne kept us calm throughout. She'll be our first and last real estate agent.Will M
A friend recommended Anne to us. We were just getting started in looking around for homes and Anne made the often frustrating process as seamless as possible! She was incredibly thorough in her explanation of the process from our initial lunch meeting through closing. She was very informative, attentive and personal and very honest in her thoughts on each home which we valued. Thank you so much for your help and professionalism! We love our new home!Mackenzie & Sebastian K

Hello, Ms. Mitchener,
I don't think we've had the pleasure of meeting, but my name is Ryan D. My wife, Anna, and I recently purchased a home in Myers Park and had the good fortune of working with Anne Sauvain. As the owner and broker-in-charge of HM Properties, I wanted to share a brief note of recognition for Anne.
First, I am a very demanding client. I expect a lot, especially in a transaction with long-term financial implications. Anne vastly exceeded our high expectations. Here are just a few examples of how Anne made our search successful:
We live in Chicago and were not able to see properties in person. Anne setup FaceTime calls, Google Hangouts, and/or met with our in-town relatives to preview properties, often multiple times. She would answer our questions honestly, without being overly dismissive of our concerns or disparaging towards the property.
In several instances, I shared unconventional ideas on how we could reach an agreement with the sellers. Anne always listened to my ideas, was not afraid to share alternative points-of-view on the ramifications of my approach, and most importantly, was willing to ask difficult questions to help us achieve our goal.
We signed a contract on May 14th and had a firm closing date of June 11th. Anne's knowledge of the closing process and deep relationships with the requisite experts provided us with more than sufficient time to negotiate with the sellers and achieve our desired closing date. Further, we will not be relocating until next week, which has made coordinating repairs difficult. In my experience, it is rare for an agent to continue helping clients after a closing date; however, Anne has checked-in with us regularly and offered to check-in with contractors if/when we need some help.
This is not an exhaustive list, but in short, our relocation has been infinitely easier because of Anne's efforts. My parents are considering relocating to the Charlotte area in the next 12-18 months and have already contacted Anne to lead their search. Anna and I also look forward to continuing our relationship with Anne and HM Properties for years to come.Ryan & Anna D
Anne helped two of our daughters find homes. She was very professional and knowledgeable about the Charlotte market. She was also very detailed on scheduling inspections, etc... and an absolute delight to work with!Lisa & Crockett D
My best friend introduced me to Anne several years ago and we became friends through her. We knew we could trust Anne throughout this major life event - buying a home - and she more than exceeded our expectations. My husband and I moved from Chicago to Charlotte and Anne made buying a home from afar so easy. She was so responsive, always available, knowledgeable, and really got to know us and what we valued. I can't imagine buying a home without her.Elizabeth & Brian U
Anne went above and beyond everything we could have wanted. She made our first home buying experience a complete joy!Patrick S
Anne was so knowledgeable and helpful. We were first time home buyers and has little idea on the process. She is a very hard worker and I knew she would be very dedicated in helping us find the perfect home.Chandler C
