Pat McNamara joins Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty

GREENVILLE, S.C.— One of the Upstate’s leading land brokers, Pat McNamara, has joined Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty.

A Greenville native and a Clemson University graduate, McNamara has been in the real estate industry since 1984. In 1996, he founded The McNamara Company, which provided commercial and industrial real estate services in the Upstate and North Carolina mountains. He was active in retail, office, industrial, and development properties before focusing his practice on land brokerage.

In 2002, McNamara explored a new business pursuit: co-owning Carolina Land Company. He spent 19 years in this position, and helped represent buyers and sellers of tracts of land for investment, farms and farming, home sites, recreation, hunting, timber and development.

In the community, McNamara has been involved with several professional and civic organizations including the American Diabetes Association (former Greenville Leadership Council Chair), S.C. Chapter of REALTORS’s Land Institute (former president), National Association of Realtors, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (current board member). He is married to the former Beth Phillips and is the proud father of three girls, one boy, and three grandsons.

“We are thrilled to bring Pat McNamara onto our team,” said Joan Herlong, owner and CEO of Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty. “He is well versed in every side of real estate and sales, and I know he will be a strong addition.”
