In December of 2016, Janice and her husband purchased a Cobb County landmark, Hollycrest Hall, where 60,800+ cars pass by daily, and converted it into the business office. Having this high visibility space allows Janice and her team to host client and community events each month. The Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team, with Keller Williams Atlanta North, consists of 25 real estate professionals, including a sales team and a full-time administrative staff. They have received many awards over the years from local and national levels. There are too many awards to mention, but one recent award that they are very proud of and just recently took home was being named the #1 Real Estate Team in Cobb County, GA for 2018 by the Cobb Association of Realtors. Their expertise is in listing homes and getting them SOLD all while ensuring that the client has a five star experience. Janice and her husband are also avid house flippers and have been flourishing in the market since it tanked in 2007. Despite the economic downturn, their business continued to grow successfully and they have flipped over 100 houses to date!
To bring it all full circle, Janice started a non-profit 501c3 charity, JO Gives in 2016 and currently raises money for four programs it supports: Homeless Pets Foundation, Emory University, Chin Up Foundation, and Project Mexico. The thing that drives Janice the most is the ability to give back to the community she loves and adores so much and with the help of JO Gives Inc. she’s able to do just that. She holds many events at her real estate office, such as poker nights, wine tastings, art shows, pet adoptions, low-cost vaccination clinics, and more to help pour into her charity. As of August 2019, JO Gives Inc. has raised over $241,000.
