Strengths & Motivations

Finding a good mentor is key to building a career and when Alex decided to get into real estate, he didn’t have to look very far for a trusted advisor. Or two. Or three. “Real Estate is in my blood,” says Alex, whose Grandfather, C. Dan Joyner, founded an eponymous real estate company back in 1964. “My whole family is in the business. My father and mother have been in real estate in multiple capacities over the last 30 years. My uncle, aunt, both siblings and wife are all major parts of the company and I’m sure we’ll have more join us in the future. Chet and Beth are the best of the best and will compound the support that I have around me. They all serve as an example to follow and a source of wisdom and knowledge.” Alex believes the Golden Rule is the true key to success. His main goal is to carry on the legacy of what his family and Chet & Beth have worked so hard to achieve.

Personal & Community Interests

Alex has been married to his wife, Ellis, for nearly 10 years who is also a Greenville Native, USC graduate and BHHS/C. Dan Joyner Co REALTOR. They have three children – a son, Bo (6) and two daughters, Mary Ellis (4) and Reed (2) in addition to two Golden Retrievers named Carter and Sugar. In Alex’s free time he enjoys running with a group of friends from the YMCA several days a week, long distance races, grilling on his Big Green Egg and spending time with his family and friends. Alex has a strong affinity for the YMCA, serving on the Metro Board, Growth and Planning Committee and Membership & Marketing Committee in addition to coaching several youth sports.
