These days, it seems the doors of Beth Joyner Crigler’s home are always open. She and her husband David have six young grandchildren, and a seventh is due this month.
“They’re in and out of our house all the time because they’re so close,” Crigler said, “but we absolutely love it.”
The Criglers and their three adult children live within a short distance of each other. Their busy lives are packed with kids’ basketball games, soccer games, and ballet performances. They do nearly everything as a family.
“My parents were at every game and activity for my children,” Crigler said. “They didn’t want to miss anything.”
Beth’s father is the late C. Dan Joyner. He started the family’s real estate business in 1964. Today, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices C. Dan Joyner, REALTORS has about 400 agents.
Beth worked at her dad’s real estate office in the summers, but she never planned to make it a career. She worked in banking and later taught kindergarten so she could spend more time with her kids.
When she got into real estate, Beth had to balance her business with her family. The first time she showed a house to some close friends, she arrived with all three kids in their car seats. That showing would be the first of many for the Crigler kids. Beth’s two older children are in real estate now, and the youngest just passed her final test.
“My immediate family is now 100% in real estate,” Crigler said.
Beth Crigler has set the bar high for those following in her footsteps. She has been one of the top ten agents in Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices C. Dan Joyner REALTORS. She is a multi-year Top Producer and has been in the Leading Edge Society, the President’s Circle, and the Chairman’s Circle.
Beth has been the lead agent in three successful downtown communities. Pendleton West and Ridgeland at the Park have already sold out. Alta Vista Place, a condo development on the old 8 O’Clock Superette property, is selling quickly.
Crigler works closely with her daughter, Carmen Crigler Feemster, and her daughter-in-law, Ellis McClenaghan Crigler, who are also agents. The three women are always there to support one another. “It’s important for our clients to know that if we can’t be there, we’ve got someone we trust to back us up,” Beth Crigler said.
Their business is built on relationships, and being active in their community helps build those relationships. Beth Crigler was the president of the Gower Neighborhood Association for two years. She’s a Junior League Sustainer and a member of United Way’s Women in Real Estate Committee. She’s involved in the Heart Walk in honor of her dad.
Beth Crigler is carrying on her father’s legacy of service by opening doors in business and in her community.
