Growing up in Greenville, Carmen Crigler Feemster had a passion for real estate that was inspired by the heart of her family business. Carmen’s mentors were her grandfather, the late C. Dan Joyner, and her parents, who have over 20 years in the real estate industry. After graduating from the University of South Carolina and gaining some sales experience, in 2012 she was excited to begin working for C. Dan Joyner REALTORS®, the company her grandfather founded in 1964.
Like her family, Carmen enjoys serving the community. For the past 5 years, she was named a top producer in the Augusta Road office, and also received awards for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices global network. She was the #22 individual residential agent for C. Dan Joyner REALTORS® this year. Carmen balances her work and home life well. She says, “My husband and kids are very supportive and understanding. They know it may be dinner time, but I’ll have to leave to go show a house. They know how important it is for me to be there for my clients.”
Home-buying is a big decision – that’s why Carmen makes sure to be the kind of agent that finds the perfect home. She says, “This is about them. I don’t want my clients to ever feel like they have to settle – I want them to know they can trust in me to find what they’re looking for.”
In her spare time, Carmen enjoys spending time with her husband and their 3 kids, ages 7, 5, and 3. Carmen is feeling the full-circle of motherhood, as she remembers her Mom, Beth Crigler, doing the exact same thing she is now, paving her way in the real estate industry while still finding time for her family. Carmen does everything from planning school carnivals and silent auctions to teaching Wednesday night church. She has also been asked to be a Pink Power Woman to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
Carmen’s husband is a lender and knowledgeable of the real estate process. “He knows the amount of time and effort that goes into buying and selling a home, so he understands there are no set work hours.” Carmen started out at the reception desk for C. Dan Joyner, and seven years later she continues to unveil success as a REALTOR® by carrying on the family legacy. Carmen is thankful for her clients. “Whether they are born and raised here or moving from a different state, I hope they will continue to love Greenville as much as I do.”
