At JHA-SIR, Joan Herlong herself sets the tone and the pace. She began selling real estate in1993 and, after years as the top agent for a national brand, started her own boutique agency before being invited into the Sotheby’s International Realty network. Joan is the Number One Realtor of the Decade in the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors. She sold $294 million in residential real estate, which was $46 million more than the next closest agent. (Source: GGAR MLS Sales Volume 2009-19.)
In 2017, Sotheby’s International Realty approached Joan based on her company’s record of performance and reputation for unimpeachable integrity. After several months of intense due diligence, Joan was convinced that, in addition to unmatchable resources Sotheby’s would bring to the table, the company’s approach to business was consistent with her own. In other words, a perfect fit. Accordingly, on September 17, 2017, we launched Joan Herlong & Associates | Sotheby’s International Realty.
The results have been spectacular, with JHA-SIR more than doubling in size and sales by 2019.
We look forward to bringing all of our expertise and resources to assist you with your residential real estate needs.
