Three Associates of Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty were ranked in the Top 100 Sales Volume leaders in South Carolina, according to data released by RealTrends this week.
Joan Herlong, the agency’s CEO and founder, was ranked sixth; Lisa Vogel, an associate in the Clemson/Lakes office was 75th, and Grace Herlong Loveless, an associate in the Greenville, was 85th, according to RealTrends, which identifies the country’s most successful residential real estate brokerages, teams and agents each year. The RealTrends team compiles and verifies transaction sides and closed sales volume for the industry’s trusted annual rankings program.
Herlong is the first word when it comes to real estate in the Upstate. She has been selling real estate full time since 1993, and led all agents in the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors in sales volume between January 2012 and December 2021 with $388 million worth of real estate transactions. She opened her own boutique agency in 2011. Herlong affiliated with Sotheby’s International Realty and launched Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty in 2017, and the company has more than tripled in size since that time.
Born in Greenville, Loveless joined Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty in 2017 after a career in luxury automobiles. In her first year, she sold more than $9 million and was named the company’s Rookie of the Year. She became a member of the President’s Circle, which is for Associates who did more than $5 million in sales, and the Chairman’s Circle, which is for Associates who did more than $10 million in sales, in 2021 and 2022.
Before Vogel joined Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, she was in the top 5% of agents at different brokerages and a member of the firm’s President’s Circle Society. Prior to that, she was the Broker-in-Charge for one of the largest North Carolina real estate companies. In 2022, Vogel had the largest sale for anyone in the Clemson office.
“These results are a testament to our entire company’s commitment to integrity, professionalism, and exceptional service,” said Jackson Herlong, the company’s Chief Strategy Officer and the non-compete Broker-in-charge for the Clemson/Lakes office. “We have focused intently on being more than a real estate company. We want to be partners in our clients’ biggest life decisions.”
