From Chari's Clients:
“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.”
“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 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.”
“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
“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.”
“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
“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
“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.”
“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
“…we want you to know how much we appreciate all you have done for us. As far as REALTORS go, you are by far way above the rest. We hope your boss realizes what a treasure you are.”
