Severn Bancorp Inc. agrees to buy Hyatt Real Estate

One Annapolis institution announced last week that it was buying another.

Severn Bancorp Inc., parent company of Severn Savings Bank, has entered into an agreement to buy Hyatt Real Estate. Bank executives said the move is a logical extension of the mortgage-oriented company's real estate commitment.

Hyatt's properties include residential listings in the Annapolis and Chesapeake Bay area and office condominiums and space in strip shopping centers. The company also manages properties.

The deal is subject to regulatory approval, and is expected to be final in the second quarter of this year.
