“Our home purchasing experience definitely exceeded our expectations with Coldwell Banker. We’ve never had an agent who was as friendly, patient, kind, or as thoughtful as our Coldwell Banker agent, Yvette Grist. She was not merely an assigned agent; she became a friend to us. That’s what it’s all about. She listened to our preferences and paid attention to the details of what we were looking for in not just a house but a home. She truly helped us envision what we would and would not like in our house. She did not sugar coat any part of the process. While other agents from other brokerages we’ve worked with in the past seemed to want to have us buy something quickly, our Coldwell Banker agent was completely dedicated to us. She was committed to our family from the start. She always made our 10 yr old son feel like he was part of the process as well - super thoughtful. We set a timeline of being in our new home before Christmas and she made it happen! Yvette always had our best interest in mind until the very end. Thank you so much for making our home buying experience a memorable one and a lot less stressful.” — Raul, Yari and Isaac D.
“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 loved our agent’s (Franne) professionalism, friendliness, promptness, and availability. Our REALTOR knew her role and transitioned us perfectly.” — Kris
“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
“I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you put into selling my house for me in Summerville. I know times were very stressful and you were doing the work of two people, but you kept going forward until it was sold. So... THANK YOU! I really appreciate you and all your hard work! ” — Becky D.
“Always helpful with details - what a pleasure. Always quick to respond with complete details of all inquiries. Yvette makes you feel like your listing is the most important. I would recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying. ” — Cliff and Betty
“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.
“Thank you Yvette! We couldn’t have done this without you.” — Darlene and Jacquelyn
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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.
“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
“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
“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.
“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
