Description

Elegance, history, and unparalleled privacy all mark the Robert Trail Chisholm house, circa 1838. One passes down the private drive from Legare Street through the imposing, wrought iron gates to the charming Greek Revival mansion. Situated in the park-like setting of its 1/2 acre grounds, the estate is a self-contained world of serenity and quiet. This highly desirable property is located in the heart of the ''Estate Block'' of lower Legare Street, south of Tradd Street, surrounded by the largest concentration of historic mansions in the city. The historic home, as well as its spacious grounds, were recently restored in a 2 year project guided by local architect Glenn Keyes, restoration contractor Richard Marks and landscape architect Sheila Wertimer.(More...)

  • 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

    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

  • 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

  • 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 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.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne and Mark were there for us during every step of our buying and selling process. Not only do they know the Charleston/Mt. Pleasant real estate market intimately, they go above and beyond necessary whenever possible. We cannot recommend them highly enough and recommend them we do… to friends, family members and anyone seeking a smooth and hassle-free real estate transaction! We don’t know how they do it, but Franne and Mark can make a very stressful time, if not “fun”, at least “smooth sailing”. Thanks for everything. — Traci and Brian

  • 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

    My first transaction with Yvette was selling 8 acres of land. The process was complicated and long, but Yvette guided me through each and every step, checking documents, speaking with multiple organizations, and explaining maps and inspections. She even helped me move! A year later, she helped me find and purchase a new home. The transactions were entirely different, but Yvette’s responsiveness and professionalism and genuine interest in my needs remained constant. I trust Yvette for any future real estate transactions. I highly recommend her. — Jason

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    …I loved our agent’s (Franne) professionalism, friendliness, promptness, and availability. Our REALTOR knew her role and transitioned us perfectly. — Kris

  • 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

  • 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 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

  • 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

    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

  • 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

    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
