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.

  • 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

    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.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    The buying experience with Yvette was incredible.  She made the process exceedingly easy and stress free. She provided me the knowledge of an experienced professional you'd expect from a big name in the industry without the pushiness you sometimes find with larger companies. I'd definitely recommend Yvette to my friends and family. — Kyle B.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Really had a tremendous experience working with Chari at Charleston Fine Homes.  Her knowledge, patience and attention to detail was especially valuable as we were relatively new to the area. — Chris

  • 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

  • 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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

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

  • 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

  • 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 and Chari were essential to the successful sale of my house.  Their advice and counsel during the sale months and especially in securing a solid contract was "right on"!!  They rolled up their sleeves during the move process to ensure a spotless homes far beyond what I have experienced previously with other REALTORS®.  A great team!! — Charlie

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    We have bought and sold many homes in several states and never had a REALTOR who compared to Franne Schwarb. Her commitment to our satisfaction was very impressive. Combine that with her marketing knowledge, integrity, and professionalism, and she is one in a million. Additionally, as out of state buyers, Franne was our eyes and ears here. We simply could not have done it without her. I will be recommending Franne every change I get. My husband and I are still marveling at how we got so lucky! — Margaret W

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne and Chari were amazing…they were always there to help…I cannot say enough about them.We could not have imagined that selling our home could have been any smoother. We had lived in our home for 20 years and the Charleston Fine Homes team was truly exceptional. They made everything so easy to helping with the entire process from preparing our home for sale up until closing. They are knowledgeable, trusting and kind ladies. I would use them again and again. — Patty

  • 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

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    We highly recommend Yvette - she was great, super helpful and very on top of everything! She was able to really understand what we were looking for each time we looked at a new home. She interpreted more in depth than how we were able to articulate. As out of state buyers Yvette was a tremendous asset throughout the entire process, helping us get as much info as possible on the properties and areas, videoing houses and surrounding area so we could be well informed prior to deciding to come down and look. — Nick and Sarah
