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 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

    I highly recommend Yvette Grist for finding a home for anyone looking, she went above and beyond finding my husband and I a rental home 7 months ago. Now after relocating for my husband’s job, we are now looking at buying a home and surprise Yvette has worked her magic once again and found us a home. She has answered any and all questions we have thrown at her. She also answered many inquiries about the area and places to visit an eat. Jeremy and I appreciate everything you have done for us, and we will give you our business in the future as well. — Jeremy & Jill T.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    I liked Franne from our first encounter. She was smart, bold, and very experienced. She had a great knowledge of the market and years of experience to guide us with our sale. Chari was a great asset to the team and very complementary to Franne’s experience with her sense of style, recommendations on staging, and other sage advice. Both Franne and Chari were responsive in a very timely manner, communicative, and insightful to our needs. We have been extremely pleased with both Chari and Franne and have doubts our home would have sold so quickly at the great price we obtained without this superb team. Franne and Chari are a dream team!!! — Jeanette Andrews

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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.

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    We highly recommend Yvette - she was great, super helpful and very on top of everything! She was able to really understand what we were looking for each time we looked at a new home. She interpreted more in depth than how we were able to articulate. As out of state buyers Yvette was a tremendous asset throughout the entire process, helping us get as much info as possible on the properties and areas, videoing houses and surrounding area so we could be well informed prior to deciding to come down and look. — Nick and Sarah

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Always helpful with details - what a pleasure.  Always quick to respond with complete details of all inquiries.  Yvette makes you feel like your listing is the most important.  I would recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying.   — Cliff and Betty

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    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

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    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

  • 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

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

  • 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 D.

  • 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

    …I loved our agent’s (Franne) professionalism, friendliness, promptness, and availability. Our REALTOR knew her role and transitioned us perfectly. — Kris
