“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
“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
“I highly recommend Yvette Grist for finding a home for anyone looking, she went above and beyond finding my husband and I a rental home 7 months ago. Now after relocating for my husband’s job, we are now looking at buying a home and surprise Yvette has worked her magic once again and found us a home. She has answered any and all questions we have thrown at her. She also answered many inquiries about the area and places to visit an eat. Jeremy and I appreciate everything you have done for us, and we will give you our business in the future as well.” — Jeremy & Jill T.
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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 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
“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
“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
“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.
“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
“…I loved our agent’s (Franne) professionalism, friendliness, promptness, and availability. Our REALTOR knew her role and transitioned us perfectly.” — Kris
“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.
“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
“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.
