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.

  • 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.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    I liked Franne from our first encounter. She was smart, bold, and very experienced. She had a great knowledge of the market and years of experience to guide us with our sale. Chari was a great asset to the team and very complementary to Franne’s experience with her sense of style, recommendations on staging, and other sage advice. Both Franne and Chari were responsive in a very timely manner, communicative, and insightful to our needs. We have been extremely pleased with both Chari and Franne and have doubts our home would have sold so quickly at the great price we obtained without this superb team. Franne and Chari are a dream team!!! — Jeanette Andrews

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    I enjoyed working with people that tried to find exactly what I was looking for without using pressure to convince me to purchase something. I would without hesitation use the team of Franne Schwarb and Chari Karinshak to purchase a new home. They are exceptional in their knowledge, availability, trustworthiness and professionalism. They make you feel as if you are their only client. — Joe

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Thank you Franne and Mark for everything. Kristy and I would be lost without your help. We didn’t know where to start, but you and Mark made everything very easy! We love our new home and can’t thank you enough for being there for us. — Kristy and Todd

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    During an incredibly stressful time involving an international relocation Yvette made everything seem incredibly easy. She was always available to assist me and went above and beyond her mandate suggesting new options and providing me with up to date information on a continuous basis. She intuitively understood my needs even before I did and proposed solutions to each question that arose. She found me the perfect house and is still helping me make it feel like a home with suggestions, advice and helpful tips. She is a genuinely kind and pleasant person with limitless information not only about the local housing market but also schools, restaurants, traffic and the general way of life in the Charleston/Mount Pleasant area. Her assistance and experience have been an invaluable resource for me, and I look forward to working with her again. — Jean

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari was very kind and patient w/my husband and I as this was my first time buying a home. There were no bumps in the road and Chari worked diligently w/the lender, inspectors, etc to ensure everything went smoothly. Everyone involved in the process met and exceeded our expectations. Chari was awesome and listened to us. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase and or sell a home. — Britney

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne Schwarb is the role model for all REALTORS. She is the consummate professional. She is dedicated to her clients, working long hours and on weekends. I often received answers to questions, information on new listings, etc. late into the evening and on weekends by phone, email and text. She was always there for me. Franne is honest, direct and the ultimate “glass half full” person which I greatly appreciated and respected. It was a pleasure to work with Franne. — Tom

  • 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

    The selling experience far exceeded my expectations. I’ve sold a few houses and never had agents who were so responsive-calls were returned promptly and concerns were addressed. Franne and Chari are extremely ethical and professional, but we also had fun. Franne and Chari went above and beyond the call of duty. I recommend highly. — Mira

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne is fantastic! She listened to our needs, identified a wide range of viable options, and handled all follow-up details accurately and thoroughly. She is a consummate professional, while totally approachable and personable at the same time. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone in search of an outstanding REALTOR®. — Debbie and Mark

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    The sale of our home went very well. Thank you, Yvette, for a job well done! Yvette was very professional and yet personable. The Coldwell Banker resources that were emailed regularly about how well our home was shown, how many visited the websites of our listing, was a nice touch and benefit. We would use Yvette and Coldwell Banker again. — Kathy and Chris G.

  • 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

    We gave Yvette our house listing at the the end of May with the goal of listing it June 5th.  We had done extesive work on our home and hoped to get a good price.  Yvette suggested a number $60K higher than another agent we interviewed.  We staged it well and before it even went on the market, she had it sold for over asking price!  Yvette made the entire experience easy and was our strong advocate throughout the process.  I highly recommend her. — Kaye Z.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    This was a very difficult move for us with many obstacles. Franne helped us through every step of the way. She was always available and responded to our questions quickly. — Charlotte

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari was great at assessing our needs as a family and was very patient with us during the whole process. She offered professional advice and expertise without making us feel pressured “to make a deal” happen. Chari was easy to reach, prompt, and professional. Her hard-working attitude combined with a warm personality made her a great agent to have on our side! — Susie and Drew

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Thanks so much and thank you for all of your help through this whole process. We couldn't have done it without you. — Amanda and Dan

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

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