GREENVILLE, S.C.—Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty has added three Associates – Jeff Inman, Cari Bledsoe, and Davin McRoberts.
Inman brings a lifetime of knowledge in the residential and commercial construction industry. He grew up in Central Florida and began working at his grandfather’s custom cabinetry company at age 12. He formed his own cabinet company at age 19 to help pay tuition at the University of Central Florida. He then spent most of the next decade in the corporate sector working his way up to National Sales Manager for a large international manufacturer where he led a team of software engineers in the deployment of successful new software applications tailored for the manufacturing industry.
In 2015, Inman and his family relocated to the Upstate and have enjoyed the close-knit community that surrounds Greenville. He served on the board of Greer Relief, which is an organization dedicated to providing safety-net, stabilizing, and one-stop services to people of our neighboring communities, and is a volunteer coach with Wade Hampton Little League. He also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Florida.
Bledsoe is a Florida native, but she moved with her family to the Upstate while in high school. After college, she and her husband relocated several times throughout the Southeast before landing in Tennessee in 2017 where she started her real estate career working for a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate in Nashville. While with Berkshire Hathaway, she earned Certifications in Performance Expectations and Marketing Assistance; Performance Expectations and Relocation Inventory; and Performance Expectations and Destination. She also chairs the social committee for her neighborhood association.
She returned to the Upstate in 2019, and spent two years with another real estate firm before joining Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty this Spring.
A Spartanburg native and North Greenville University graduate, McRoberts worked for several different businesses, before he returned to his family’s company, SCTool Corp, which is a manufacturer of high-performance, carbide cutting tools, as an equity partner in 2017. He helped grow the company into a multi-million business with 41 employees. He is now the CEO of the Spartanburg-based company. He has purchased and sold five houses in the past decade, and that, along with leading the commercial real estate initiatives within his family’s holding company, McRoberts and Company Real Estate, LLC., made him want to dive into residential real estate for several years now.
“These three bring a variety of experience and skills that will further enhance our company’s abilities to list, sell and buy houses across the Upstate,” said Joan Herlong, owner and CEO of Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty.
