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

    We wanted to tell you how happy we are that we listed our house with you! You gave us a lot of helpful information about how to properly price our house and “show it”. Because of your pricing recommendation we were able to maximize the return on our “investment” after only one year in the house.We appreciate all your hard work! You were always available to us and returned our calls very promptly. The brochures you prepared on our house were colorful and full of essential information about the house and the community. We were amazed at the amount of feedback you were able to get from the realtors who showed our house. Your knowledge of the area and the other homes on the market was impressive! — Chris and Cathleen

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

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

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari Karinshak is a great REALTOR®. She treats her clients like family and keeps a professional approach. She is very diligent and goes above and beyond for her clients. — Ryan

  • 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

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne offered great customer service. She was very knowledgeable of the area and all its services. Returned phone calls promptly. Went over and above to be helpful and showed great attention to detail. Franne was most flexible and accommodating which we appreciated as we were relocating from Maine. From our introductory conversations in Maine to our closing in Mount Pleasant we couldn’t have asked for a smoother or more seamless transition to our new home! — Lynn and Donald

  • 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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

    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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

    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

  • 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

    Working with Franne and Mark was a great experience. During a quite stressful time as it is selling a home and moving out, we had a couple of very professional realtors by our side who did an excellent job to market our home. The good work was rewarded by a quick closing under a real estate market that was quite over inventoried. Our selling price was close to our listed price. They are very responsive. Our relationship was very professional and cordial. Highly recommended. We’ve sold 3 homes already. This has been our best experience with realtors. — Luis

  • 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

  • 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

    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
