From Chari's Clients:
“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!”

“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!!”
“I highly recommend Franne and her team for all your real estate services. I've never worked with a more professional, ethical, and charming team. The Charleston Fine Homes Team took care of all the details and gave great advice on what I should and shouldn't do to prep my home for sale. Their advice not only saved me money but lead to a quick and successful sale of my home, all during the COVID 19 pandemic. Thanks so much Charleston Fine Homes Team!”
“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
“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
“Coming from Canada, we did not know anything about the home buying process in the US. Chari was able to explain every step of the process and give us advanced notice on anything that we needed to do. She was very patient with us. Her positive and pleasant attitude made the process very much enjoyable! We will definitely recommend Chari to anyone looking for a 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
“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.”

Chari became a licensed real estate professional in 2007 after enjoying a successful career in sales and operating her own small business. Although she grew up on a farm in Georgia, she considers the South Carolina Lowcountry to be HOME. She met her husband, David, while attending the University of South Carolina.
The couple moved to Charleston in 1993 and were married in 1995. They couldn’t have imagined a better place to live and raise a family. Chari and David (who friends lovingly refer to as “Shak”) have three children, all born several years apart, but in the same hospital room in downtown Charleston.
Chari loves animals and Pittsburgh sports teams. Her four rescue dogs are endearingly named after Steelers and Penguins players and provided a life any dog or human would cherish. Chari is 100% committed to her profession and it shows. She’s a licensed Broker, Top Producer, and a Charleston REALTOR of Distinction. Her professional and southern demeanor quickly builds trust and puts her clients at ease so they can focus on their real estate goals. Her personality, combined with her local real estate expertise, has made her an agent for life with many clients.
