“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.
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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.
“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.
“As individuals, Franne, Chari, and Yvette are each incredibly talented and dedicated to their clients. As a team, they complement one another beautifully, covering every aspect of the home buying process. They go above and beyond because they not only know the market, but also can anticipate and match client needs and desires to find the best home at the best price in the time allotted. Ours was a challenging search and buy mission. Charleston Fine Homes represented us well throughout the entire process. We highly recommend Franne, Chari, and Yvette without hesitation.” — Ann and Richard
“Chari and her team at Charleston Fine Homes were a joy to work with. I had some fairly restrictive requirements and a limited area to work in. Because of this, I assumed my search would drag on for months, Chari's knowledge of the area and thorough research found my daughter and I a perfect home within weeks. She was also very knowledgeable in the inspector, lender, and closing attorney realm. Finding a lender with a better rate and service than the one I had previously been working with. Her charm and dedication made the process enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home.” — Philip
“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
“Yvette went above and beyond to make sure that I found everything and more that I wanted, and she was always more than happy to answer every question that I had. I would highly recommend using her for all of your real estate needs.” — Brent
“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.
“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.
“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 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
