Description

There are very few places in the United States where someone can lay claim to living in the home of a ''Founding Father.'' Edward Rutledge, signer to the Declaration of Independence, lived in this magnificent Georgian-style mansion from 1763 until his death in 1800. Rutledge also served as South Carolina's 10th Governor. Now known as The Governor's House, this home was first built in 1760 by James Laurens, brother to the President of the Second Continental Congress, Henry Laurens. His son John Laurens served as aide-de-camp to President George Washington and was a close friend to Alexander Hamilton. Sitting on nearly 1/2 acre just outside the original walled city, on the site of the former Charleston Orange Garden, the house has been altered and added onto since construction.

    You made the entire process smoother than we dared hope. And, we know there was more than luck involved in the rapid turnaround. You guys were with us each step of the way and your pricing advice was invaluable. — Wanda and Bruce

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    I was referred to Yvette by the USAA Real Estate Rewards Network Program.  It turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  She was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly.  Yvette always kept me informed and used her expertise to give me the best service . She always went above and beyond, nights and weekends.  I'll tell all of my friends and family about her.   — Gary B.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    …you both did a great job and we could not have picked a better “team” for a REALTOR®. So many times, throughout the process we wondered how people could sell their homes without experts like you. You two are the epitome of what a realtor should be! Many thanks to both of you! — Bob

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Working with Charleston Fine Homes, specifically Franne and Chari, was like working with a trusted friend. Professional and Knowledgeable. They made the buying experience a vacation! I have recommended them several times already and if the need arises would use them myself again!! — Maryann

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Coming from Canada, we did not know anything about the home buying process in the US. Chari was able to explain every step of the process and give us advanced notice on anything that we needed to do. She was very patient with us. Her positive and pleasant attitude made the process very much enjoyable! We will definitely recommend Chari to anyone looking for a REALTOR! — Nada

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Yvette met all of my expectations and then some.  She not only helped me find the perfect home, but went above and beyond for me.  From regularly checking up on my new home's construction and sending updates to going the extra mile to set me up with temporary blinds.  She was even able to complete the final walkthrough of my home due to me being unavailable.  I would without a doubt recommend her to any person moving to the Charleston area.  She is simply amazing! — Cory C.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    I highly recommend Franne and her team for all your real estate services. I've never worked with a more professional, ethical, and charming team. The Charleston Fine Homes Team took care of all the details and gave great advice on what I should and shouldn't do to prep my home for sale. Their advice not only saved me money but lead to a quick and successful sale of my home, all during the COVID 19 pandemic. Thanks so much Charleston Fine Homes Team! — Eric G.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Best REALTOR and experience, even in this crazy market!!  Thank you, Yvette!!! — Lauren and Rob

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    We highly recommend Franne and her team to anyone buying or selling real estate in the Charleston area. This was our third transaction with Franne, and it keeps getting better. Her professionalism is superb. She is extremely responsive and easy to get in contact with. While simultaneously working with other clients, she manages to make you feel you are the highest priority. Her extensive experience id beneficial in many ways. There are no surprises and she’s always 1 or 2 steps ahead. If we ever buy again in Charleston, we will use Franne without a doubt! — Molly and John

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    It was a pleasure working with Franne Schwarb and her team at Charleston Fine Homes. Their professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market, and resources all contributed to our home going under contract in less than one week. From start to finish, the process was efficient, organized, and seamless. Franne was there every step of the way to answer any and all questions, provide resources such as a photographer, home staging professional, and tradesman for repair work, etc. During this process we were out of the country and Franne and her team went above and beyond. Not only did they meet contractors at our house, but they also ensured the job was getting done and kept us updated. I would highly recommend Charleston Fine Homes for all your real estate needs. — Kathy and John

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari is extremely thorough, detailed, professional and extremely courteous. Without Chari being involved this would have been an extremely difficult transaction. She went above and beyond the call of duty and simplified every aspect of the transaction. I felt totally comfortable relying on Chari from the very beginning. It was like having a family member representing your best interests and not having to worry. — Emil

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Our home purchasing experience definitely exceeded our expectations with Coldwell Banker. We’ve never had an agent who was as friendly, patient, kind, or as thoughtful as our Coldwell Banker agent, Yvette Grist. She was not merely an assigned agent; she became a friend to us. That’s what it’s all about. She listened to our preferences and paid attention to the details of what we were looking for in not just a house but a home. She truly helped us envision what we would and would not like in our house. She did not sugar coat any part of the process. While other agents from other brokerages we’ve worked with in the past seemed to want to have us buy something quickly, our Coldwell Banker agent was completely dedicated to us. She was committed to our family from the start. She always made our 10 yr old son feel like he was part of the process as well - super thoughtful. We set a timeline of being in our new home before Christmas and she made it happen! Yvette always had our best interest in mind until the very end. Thank you so much for making our home buying experience a memorable one and a lot less stressful. — Raul, Yari and Isaac D.

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    I myself am a knowledgeable financial professional and know the area and real estate transactions very well. Chari is a long-time friend, but that only got her foot in the door. Chari’s experience, attitude and work ethic are more than I could ask for. We know that transactions in real estate can be very personal and Chari has the interpersonal skills to handle these delicate situations. — John

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Working with Charleston Fine Homes was a pleasure on our move to the Charleston area. We were brand new to the area and the South, and we knew after meeting Franne on our first visit that we could take a deep breath — we were in good hands. Franne was dedicated and patient with us as we scouted the various areas and she listened as we talked about what we were looking for in our new home and community. She took that information and helped us narrow down our choices and find the homes that best aligned with what we wanted. Franne communicated with us often, gently reminded us of deadlines, and made sure if she wasn’t available someone was from her office — Mark and Chari. It may have taken multiple offers for us to find our final offer and home, but Franne and her partners were with us EVERY step of the way with professional advice and personal service. Now that we are settled, Franne has been a source of references and information as we get to know the area. We not only have great realtors at Charleston Fine Homes, but we have also made some great friends. — Jill and James

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Thank you Yvette! We couldn’t have done this without you. — Darlene and Jacquelyn

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    We were extremely pleased with the manner in which our home was sold. Charleston Fine Homes was always a professional team that we knew we could count on to provide honest and reliable information to us in a timely manner. We would never think of having any other real estate team handle our business! — Donna and Mark
