Sullivans Island / Isle of Palms

From Mount Pleasant over the Isle of Palms Connector, a 3-minute ride puts you on beautiful beaches with lush tropical vegetation. The Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island are barrier islands, just 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, and are home to year-round residents and the owners of second homes. The shore comes alive in the summer with the laughter of residents and vacationers swimming in the surf and relaxing on the beach. The resident population enjoys the security, climate and relaxed lifestyle of a small beachside community.

Isle of Palms History

The Isle of Palms is believed to be at least 25,000 years old, and the original inhabitants were the Seewee Indians. They disappeared soon after the arrival of the European colonists in the 17th century. According to legend, the only other inhabitants of the island were pirates who buried treasure in the dunes and woods.

The island was first named Hunting Island, probably in recognition of the fish and game it provided for the early settlers. Adjacent to Sullivan’s Island, the Isle of Palms was the scene of significant action during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. In 1864, the CSS Hunley, a 9-man submarine, was launched and became the first submarine to sink an enemy vessel. After sinking the USS Housatonic, the Hunley and her crew were lost at sea. In the 1990s, the wreck of the Hunley was discovered off the shore of Sullivan’s Island and in 2000 was recovered. Today, this historical nautical wonder is proudly displayed in North Charleston.

The Isle of Palms remained without permanent residents until about 1899, when it was purchased and given its current name. In 1906, a 50-room resort hotel was built and Charlestonians began to arrive by ferry boat to enjoy the peacefulness and cool ocean breezes.

Wild Dunes Resort

Isle of Palms is home to the Wild Dunes Resort. It has two Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf courses that are open to the public. Both were ranked in the top 100 by Golf Magazine. The Links course winds through the dunes to the Atlantic Ocean, while the Harbor course’s layout is along the Intracoastal Waterway. Both courses call for strategic thinking and skillful shots.

Parks

The Isle of Palms County Park provides lifeguards (in season), along with basic amenities. At the Southern tip of Sullivan’s Island, the Fort Moultrie National Monument, operated by the National Park Service, is the site of the firing on Fort Sumter in 1861, during the Civil War.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    The buying experience with Yvette was incredible.  She made the process exceedingly easy and stress free. She provided me the knowledge of an experienced professional you'd expect from a big name in the industry without the pushiness you sometimes find with larger companies. I'd definitely recommend Yvette to my friends and family. — Kyle B.

  • 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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Franne Schwarb is the role model for all REALTORS. She is the consummate professional. She is dedicated to her clients, working long hours and on weekends. I often received answers to questions, information on new listings, etc. late into the evening and on weekends by phone, email and text. She was always there for me. Franne is honest, direct and the ultimate “glass half full” person which I greatly appreciated and respected. It was a pleasure to work with Franne. — Tom

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Best REALTOR and experience, even in this crazy market!!  Thank you, Yvette!!! — Lauren and Rob

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    …you both did a great job and we could not have picked a better “team” for a REALTOR®. So many times, throughout the process we wondered how people could sell their homes without experts like you. You two are the epitome of what a realtor should be! Many thanks to both of you! — Bob

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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 Grist REALTOR

    I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you put into selling my house for me in Summerville.  I know times were very stressful and you were doing the work of two people, but you kept going forward until it was sold.  So... THANK YOU!  I really appreciate you and all your hard work!  — Becky D.

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    During an incredibly stressful time involving an international relocation Yvette made everything seem incredibly easy. She was always available to assist me and went above and beyond her mandate suggesting new options and providing me with up to date information on a continuous basis. She intuitively understood my needs even before I did and proposed solutions to each question that arose. She found me the perfect house and is still helping me make it feel like a home with suggestions, advice and helpful tips. She is a genuinely kind and pleasant person with limitless information not only about the local housing market but also schools, restaurants, traffic and the general way of life in the Charleston/Mount Pleasant area. Her assistance and experience have been an invaluable resource for me, and I look forward to working with her again. — Jean

  • 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.

We know that transactions in real estate can be very personal and Chari has the interpersonal skills to handle these delicate situations. — John

They make you feel as if you are their only client. — Joe

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    I highly recommend Franne and her team for all your real estate services. I've never worked with a more professional, ethical, and charming team.

Their advice not only saved me money but lead to a quick and successful sale of my home, all during the COVID 19 pandemic. Thanks so much Charleston Fine Homes Team! — Eric G.
