About Us

Savoy Companies is a family-owned and operated company based in Hideaway, Texas. We have been buying, selling, building, remodeling and owner-financing homes since 2000.



Chad Hudson

Founder Chad Hudson oversees every facet of the construction, remodel or renovation process, including managing builders, project supervisors and subcontractors, and updating clients. He has a keen eye for detail and is highly skilled in time allocation, cost control and total quality management. His artistry, energy and passion for building and rehabbing is matched only by his desire for perfection.

Chad has been professionally involved in the real estate market and development field since 2000. He is a graduate of Texas A&M University. While at A&M, Chad was a starting player on two Big XII Championship Baseball teams, as well as the 1999 College World Series team. His experience as a team player has carried over into his professional career, helping him establish strong partnerships with the experts he trusts to ensure your home is built to the highest standards. For the last 18 years Chad has split his time between Hudson Properties (the name of his original real estate development company) and the family business which provided private lending to individuals for car loans. After selling the family business in 2016, Chad now focuses solely on Savoy Companies. Chad seamlessly uses his knowledge and expertise in private lending to assist qualified individuals who are looking to purchase a house or a piece of property.

Perhaps Chad's most valuable team members are his wife, Lindsay, also a Texas A&M graduate, and his two daughters: Breck and Sealy. Lindsay is a practicing attorney serving as Chief Counsel for a privately held financial services company.  Both Lindsay and the girls like to help the Savoy Companies’ team with design functionality, material selection and color options.
