Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty announces top agents for first quarter
GREENVILLE, S.C. — Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty has honored its top Associates for the first quarter.
In the Greenville office, the top two buyer agents were Brittney Bolt and Matt Crider, and the top two listing agents were Samantha Snyder and Grace Herlong Loveless. Crider and Bolt also were the company-wide first quarter Skyrocket Award winners for doing more than 200% in volume this quarter over 2022.
In the Clemson office, the top two buyer agents were Mike Kingsmore and Lisa Vogel, and the top two listing agents were Vogel and Diane Bostrom.
Loveless, a Greenville native, moved around the Southeast due to her work for BMW before joining the Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty team in 2017. 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.
Snyder is originally from Upstate New York and after moving around the East Coast for her husband’s work, they settled in Greenville after falling in love with the city after a short overnight stop. A career in luxury car sales and her passion service, led her to Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty. She won the Rocket Award in 2020 and was a member of the President’s Circle in 2022. She also is a part of the Furman Group.
Licensed since 2012, Bolt describes herself as a naturally-curious “lover of relationships.” A Greenville, native, Bolt comes from a real estate family, and meeting new people, learning about them, and learning from them is one of the most rewarding aspects of her work.
Crider joined Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty as a Sales Associate but underwent the necessary training in order to become a Broker Associate. In 2020, Crider was the company’s Top Producer, and has been named to the President’s Circle and Chairman’s Circle in successive years since.
Kingsmore spent more than 35 years as a leader in the textile industry winning numerous honors and accolades. A Clemson graduate, he joined the firm in 2022 seeing real estate as a great use of his skills. He loves building relationships with the families he works with as they search for their new home in the Upstate.
Before Vogel joined Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, she was one of 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.
Bostrom has been with Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty since April 2021 and she became a member of the Chairman’s Circle in 2021 and the President’s Circle in 2022. She is committed to her clients—she once drove from Clemson to Charleston and back just to help a client with a closing.
“Our agents have started off 2023 as strong as ever,” said Joan Herlong, owner and CEO of Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty. “We’re extremely proud of the work that they’re doing.”
