Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Greenville, SC.
Joan was fantastic in helping us find and purchase our home. She knew the right neighborhood for us, and she found us the perfect house for our needs and preferences. To top it off, she was a tenacious advocate for us through the entire transaction process.

I have sold 3 residential properties and purchased 3 residential properties through Joan between 2000 and 2010. Each time she skillfully guided me through the process and helped me make appropriate decisions on terms, pricing, etc. In 2008 I purchased a new home and I was trying to sell my old house. I had difficulty because buyers could not get financing nor sell their houses. Joan found a buyer with a cheaper home. Through her creativeness she help us trade homes and I was able to sell the cheaper home within 90 days. She is very smart, to the point, aggressive, organized, witty, and responsive. She really knows the market and how to get a house sold.

Joan is the most knowledgeable realtor in the upstate and made the selling and buying process for us so much easier!!
In helping us sell our home Joan gave us solid advice for changes to make, and helped us to hit our goal sales price!
When I came to her with a list of homes I'd found on Zillow... she immediately was able to give me statuses of them based on those with problems, under-contract, not worth our time, or potential new homes! It led to us putting a contract on our "forever home" 1 day after our previous house went under contract!
We would highly recommend Joan and her team at AugustaRoad.com Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Upstate of SC!

There's a lot of things I liked about working with Joan, but I would say her no-nonsense approach would be the top of my list. She will tell it like it is, and she will also go to the mat for her clients to get the value they want out of their home. This also means she's a realist, so don't expect sugarcoating. I'm a brass tacks type of person so I appreciate this approach.
She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the local martketplace, deep understanding of what we could and could not ask for based on current and past offerings, connections far and wide in the community, and a commitment to fostering and maintaining relationships with her clients on both a business and a personal level.
I have used Joan as both a listing and a buying agent, and I was 100% satisfied in both cases as she guided us through both processes effectively and smoothly. I cannot recommend Joan enough.

Ms. Herlong is an outstanding local real estate agent providing both seller's and buyer's services. She is also a bright and personable individual who can make this oftentimes difficult decision as fun as it can possibly be. She has extensive knowledge of the greater Greenville Metropolitan residential market and is also very involved in many other community services which makes her uniquely qualified to help both local and non-local individuals make the right housing choices (whether listing or buying). I highly recommend Joan as a real estate agent.

Joan was very helpful in getting our house ready to sell. She gave us suggestions that were easy and cheep, which made our house more appealing to potential buyers. She was also very helpful in negotiating a very unique and creative deal for us. Joan was always quick to respond to any texts or emails, even after our deal was closed.

There are many reasons why Joan has been one of the top real estate agents in the upstate. She has an exceptional knowledge of the market, is well respected in the community, is an extremely hard worker, and simply gets the job done. Joan has assisted me in several real estate transactions and she is the first person I call. Just recently, Joan successfully negotiated the sale of one of my properties at full price in 2 days! I highly recommend that you give Joan a call.

Bought my first house (as a newly minted bacherlor) through Joan nearly 10 years ago and have been great friends since. Dynamic, creative and tireless, very wired to the market with years of expertise. Highly regarded and trusted by her peers and competitors, which is a huge help as an individual buyer or seller. No limits.
