Folly Beach

The Folly Beach story is one of pirates, shipwrecks and soldiers. It’s also the story of hardship and hurricanes and a coastline beach community. The name Folly comes from the coastline which is densely packed with trees and undergrowth. The Old English name for that kind of area is Folly. The 1st document of history that we have shows a land grant to William Rivers from King William III in 1696. Mr. Rivers eventually sold it to owners that did not live on the island. We do know that the Bohicket Indian tribe lived there until the great number of Europeans forced them to move elsewhere.

During the Civil War, Folly was occupied by Federal troops beginning in 1863. The Federal army used Folly Island as its main strategic base for the battle to take Fort Sumter. After the Civil War, Folly Beach Island was virtually abandoned. Folly became a melting pot for regular folks and temporary camps became permanent camps, became cottages.

From the 1940s onward, the building work steadily proceeded, reaching a peak in the 1960s with the construction of the Ocean Plaza with its amusement rides, boardwalk, shops and pier. The Folly Pier was a musical hub for the greater community with all the big bands playing. People from all over the country developed a love for the community that is, more than most, a people’s beach.

One of the most famous people to visit Folly Beach Island during these years was the composer and pianist, George Gershwin. It was while staying here that he composed the classic opera Porgy and Bess.

Houses here range in style from a 100 square foot 1960’s bungalow to a $1,000,000 plus property overlooking the lighthouse.

Folly Beach is also known as the end of the world and hosts an annual Flip Flop Drop, and Big Kahuna Fish Tournament. Its laid-back atmosphere may call you to make it Home.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Thank you Yvette! We couldn’t have done this without you. — Darlene and Jacquelyn

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Honey and I wanted to thank you for all your work and efforts in helping sell the house. It is truly appreciated. — Chuck and Honey

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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 Karinshak REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    …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

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    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

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    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 Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne offered great customer service. She was very knowledgeable of the area and all its services. Returned phone calls promptly. Went over and above to be helpful and showed great attention to detail. Franne was most flexible and accommodating which we appreciated as we were relocating from Maine. From our introductory conversations in Maine to our closing in Mount Pleasant we couldn’t have asked for a smoother or more seamless transition to our new home! — Lynn and Donald
