From Franne'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.”
“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 loved our agent’s (Franne) professionalism, friendliness, promptness, and availability. Our REALTOR knew her role and transitioned us perfectly.”
“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 have bought and sold many homes in several states and never had a REALTOR who compared to Franne Schwarb. Her commitment to our satisfaction was very impressive. Combine that with her marketing knowledge, integrity, and professionalism, and she is one in a million. Additionally, as out of state buyers, Franne was our eyes and ears here. We simply could not have done it without her. I will be recommending Franne every change I get. My husband and I are still marveling at how we got so lucky!”
“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
“Franne is fantastic! She listened to our needs, identified a wide range of viable options, and handled all follow-up details accurately and thoroughly. She is a consummate professional, while totally approachable and personable at the same time. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone in search of an outstanding REALTOR®.”
Debbie and Mark
“Working with Charleston Fine Homes, specifically Franne and Chari, was like working with a trusted friend. Professional and Knowledgeable. They made the buying experience a vacation! I have recommended them several times already and if the need arises would use them myself again!!”
“Franne and Mark were there for us during every step of our buying and selling process. Not only do they know the Charleston/Mt. Pleasant real estate market intimately, they go above and beyond necessary whenever possible. We cannot recommend them highly enough and recommend them we do… to friends, family members and anyone seeking a smooth and hassle-free real estate transaction! We don’t know how they do it, but Franne and Mark can make a very stressful time, if not “fun”, at least “smooth sailing”. Thanks for everything.”
Traci and Brian
“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
Franne and her late husband Mark met in New York City and married in 1971. By 1978, their family of five had settled in the Atlanta suburbs after living in three states in seven years. She began her real estate career there in 1991 after years of being a stay-at-home mom.
In 1996, Franne's husband took a job in Charleston, and she brought her real estate expertise to the Lowcountry. She started out in general brokerage and then was a site agent at Dunes West selling lots and working with custom builders. When Dunes West changed owners, she went back to general brokerage and has been helping people move ever since.
Most of her early clients were corporate relocations. They usually arrived on a Thursday, bought a home quickly, and left on Sunday or Monday. It was fun and exciting to help people relocate to a new area, just as she had relocated so many times before.
Franne is a licensed Broker in both North Carolina and South Carolina, a Top Producer and a REALTOR of Distinction. Franne was chosen as the 2018 Realtor of the Year by CTAR.
Real Estate is what Franne does, and she loves her job. She has been a REALTOR® for over 27 years. She and her teammates Chari and Yvette laughingly say they work 25 hours a day, seven days a week, but that’s fine by her.
