The Schachte Company, the oldest continuing real estate business in Charleston, was established by Henry Schachte in Charleston in 1881.
Joseph W. Schachte, the great-grandson of Henry Schachte, now owns the practice. For over 40 years, he has been involved in residential and commercial real estate sales, leasing and management throughout the Charleston Metro area. Joe was born and raised in Charleston, completing grammar school at Sacred Heart and high school at Bishop England. He has been a licensed broker in Charleston for almost his entire adult life, beginning his career upon graduation from the University of South Carolina with a BA in History in 1974.
Jane Thornhill Schachte, Joe's wife, joined the practice in 2010 after retiring from her store manager’s position with Talbots. Prior to retail, she spent 12 years in banking and held licenses to sell stocks, bonds, mutual funds, insurance products and real estate. Jane is a 9th generation Charlestonian, graduating from Ashley Hall and the College of Charleston. She is also a licensed tour guide and conducts fascinating riding and walking tours of one of America’s most beautiful and historic cities.
