“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!” — Nada
“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
“The sale of our home went very well. Thank you, Yvette, for a job well done! Yvette was very professional and yet personable. The Coldwell Banker resources that were emailed regularly about how well our home was shown, how many visited the websites of our listing, was a nice touch and benefit. We would use Yvette and Coldwell Banker again.” — Kathy and Chris G.
“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 D.
“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.” — Britney
“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
“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
“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
“Franne and Chari were amazing…they were always there to help…I cannot say enough about them.We could not have imagined that selling our home could have been any smoother. We had lived in our home for 20 years and the Charleston Fine Homes team was truly exceptional. They made everything so easy to helping with the entire process from preparing our home for sale up until closing. They are knowledgeable, trusting and kind ladies. I would use them again and again.” — Patty
“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!!” — Maryann
“Yvette met all of my expectations and then some. She not only helped me find the perfect home, but went above and beyond for me. From regularly checking up on my new home's construction and sending updates to going the extra mile to set me up with temporary blinds. She was even able to complete the final walkthrough of my home due to me being unavailable. I would without a doubt recommend her to any person moving to the Charleston area. She is simply amazing!” — Cory C.
“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!!” — Charlie
“We gave Yvette our house listing at the the end of May with the goal of listing it June 5th. We had done extesive work on our home and hoped to get a good price. Yvette suggested a number $60K higher than another agent we interviewed. We staged it well and before it even went on the market, she had it sold for over asking price! Yvette made the entire experience easy and was our strong advocate throughout the process. I highly recommend her.” — Kaye Z.
“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
“Really had a tremendous experience working with Chari at Charleston Fine Homes. Her knowledge, patience and attention to detail was especially valuable as we were relatively new to the area.” — Chris
“It was a pleasure working with Franne Schwarb and her team at Charleston Fine Homes. Their professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market, and resources all contributed to our home going under contract in less than one week. From start to finish, the process was efficient, organized, and seamless. Franne was there every step of the way to answer any and all questions, provide resources such as a photographer, home staging professional, and tradesman for repair work, etc. During this process we were out of the country and Franne and her team went above and beyond. Not only did they meet contractors at our house, but they also ensured the job was getting done and kept us updated. I would highly recommend Charleston Fine Homes for all your real estate needs.” — Kathy and John
“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
