Southern Charms: Handsome Homes Hits Charleston


Charleston, known for its cobblestone streets, complex history, and well-preserved antebellum architecture, has become one of the most desired winter escapes in all the south. Whether you are looking for a beach getaway, a Civil War history lesson, or a world-class culinary experience, Charleston is bound to have something for you. Navigating the Charleston real estate market, however, can be daunting. Luckily, there is a new player in the property management and leasing business to help get you there. 

Handsome Homes, a sister company of the renowned Handsome Properties, is a new venture led by Debbie Fisher, a 25-plus year veteran of the industry. If you are in search of a new home, a second home, or an investment property, Handsome Homes will provide you with leasing, management, and marketing services to remove the stressful aspects of the real estate process. In the words of Kara Coville, director of property management, “Handsome Homes represents a different rental experience for both homeowners and prospective tenants alike. When you list a property with Handsome Homes, you will receive personalized service from marketing and digital professionals, ensuring that your home is featured at its best. We are also here to handle management agreements and work with tenants, so that you are worry-free. We essentially take the emotion out of it for you.”Through their extensive network of tenants and owners, Handsome Homes is unmatched in its ability to efficiently find you a home or to market your existing home. “I believe our approach in connecting renters with homeowners is exceptional,” says Kara. “Of course, we work with the Charleston Multiple Listing Service and the standard rental websites, but we also have an extensive referral network stemming from our sister company, Handsome Properties. Because of our relationship with Handsome Properties, we have access to homeowners who normally wouldn’t advertise their homes publicly, as well as tenants looking to build or buy.”

Taking after the charming properties for which they provide services, the team is built on a foundation of ethics and approachability, and is always available to provide expert knowledge on the market.
