Charleston Fine Homes epitomizes integrity, hard work and dedication to customer service, which creates lifelong relationships that span generations and multiple real estate transactions.
“This is our fifth transaction with this couple in Dunes West,” said Franne Schwarb and Chari Karinshak, who are also Dunes West residents. “They’re our neighbors and our friends, and they know they can trust us with one of their most valuable assets.”
Yvette Grist, the newest member of the Charleston Fine Homes team, is a self-described “professional relationship builder.” Grist lives in south Mount Pleasant and was born and raised in Charleston. She’s also a veteran Realtor® with over a decade of experience in new construction and launching new communities.
“Yvette is the picture of Charleston (and) Southern hospitality, and it’s genuine,” stated one of her recent clients. “Not only can she relay all the details of a real estate transaction, but she’ll also give the history of the area, introduce you to the neighbors and tell you where you can find the freshest local seafood.”
Karinshak, Schwarb and Grist may seem very different from one another, but, together, the Charleston Fine Homes team stands on a solid foundation of trust and respect for each other and the people they serve.
Grist said, “We’ve had an unbelievable year as a team. Franne and Chari have been together so long, they can finish each other’s sentences. We work a lot and expect a lot, but we laugh a lot, too.”
As icing on the cake, Schwarb was recently named the 2018 Charleston Realtor of the Year by the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors. The honor recognizes not only her knowledge and professionalism but also her service to the industry and her community. While only given to one person each year, Schwarb said, “I share this award with my team. I couldn’t have achieved what I have without them.”
As the Charleston Fine Homes team, Schwarb, Karinshak and Grist have a combined 50 years of professional knowledge and experience. They provide 24/7 service with uncompromising loyalty and integrity. The three are committed to excellence, as evidenced by the designations all three hold: Realtor, broker, Realtor of Distinction and Top Producer®.
Most importantly, the three share top honors as devoted friends, mothers, spouses and family members.
