From Chari's Clients:
“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.”
“Chari Karinshak is a great REALTOR®. She treats her clients like family and keeps a professional approach. She is very diligent and goes above and beyond for her clients.”
“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
“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.”
“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.”
“…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.”
Brigid and Tom
“You did a marvelous job of helping us find our beautiful home. Thanks so much for all the hard work, the miles driven, the millions of phone calls, etc! We truly appreciate your efforts…”
Jane and Victor
“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
“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!”
“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.”
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.
