At age 29, she was selected by the National Association of Realtors as one of the ‘30 Under 30’ rising stars in the real estate industry. Janice has also served on various real estate panels across the state as a top producer and real estate expert. She has served on the Georgia Association of Realtors Grievance Panel since 2015.

After Janice’s father passed away from ALS in 2015, she has been passionate about raising awareness about the disease. Not only does she raise awareness, she hosts fundraisers and personally donates to support the Emory ALS Research Center. Some of the biggest events (Celebrity Poker Night and the ALS Art Show) have both been held at her real estate office in Marietta. Since her father’s passing, she has raised and/or personally donated over $200,000 to the Emory ALS Research Center!
In August of 2016, Janice and her husband purchased a Cobb County landmark, Hollycrest Hall, and converted it into a business office. The Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team isn’t just a business to her, it is a community center and she does all she can to provide for our community. Her office sits on the corner of a huge intersection, with over 60,000 cars passing daily. In addition to her fundraising and personal donations, she hosts many community events at this office. Some of these events include: First Responder/Military Appreciation Luncheon, Coffee with a Cop, Pictures with Santa, pet adoption events, art shows, women’s empowerment events and so many others throughout the year. Not only is her goal to raise money/awareness/hope for important local endeavors, but to bring our community together. She will always find ways to give back to her local community.
The Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team, with Keller Williams Atlanta North, consists of real estate professionals 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 in 2018 and 2019, they were awarded the #1 Real Estate Team in Cobb County, GA 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 120 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 programs she is very passionate about. These programs are the Homeless Pets Foundation, Emory University, Chin Up Foundation, and Project Mexico. Project Mexico was a special initiative to spay and neuter over 2,000 pets in Mexico for those that may not be able to afford to do so. Mexico has an overpopulation of animals and Janice made it her goal to help them out. By the beginning of May 2021, Project Mexico spayed and neutered 2,130 pets!
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 foundation. As of summer 2020, JO Gives Inc. has raised over $328,000.
Janice and her family attend church at Mount Paran North. In Janice's spare time, her first priority is to spend time with her children. She loves to write, and is always exploring her passion for educating others on the plastic crisis that the world faces as well as climate change. The Overbeck family has a chicken farm and Janice finds great joy in caring for her chickens. She is also a Peloton fanatic.

What Our Clients Say
"Julie is very knowledgeable. She was our agent for the sale of our last house and the purchase of this one. She made great recommendations and referral to the house inspector we used. She has experience that was very helpful especially since it had been over 30 years since our last house purchase."
"Julie came highly recommended and she did not disappoint. I appreciate her listening and understanding my unique situation. I have several rental houses and was in the middle of a divorce. She visited each house and did the research to provide the comps that were needed for my court date. My situation was a tough one, having lots of questions and needing things done on time for my case. She was always available and even suggested looking into things that I had not thought about. Julie was always available and responsive. Communication was excellent and in a timely manner I will defiantly be calling her again when needed."
"I worked with Julie to help me find/buy a new home in the East Cobb area. Her ability to quickly understand my family's core needs and her keen understanding of the area helped us find the perfect home in a super short timeframe. Julie also was an excellent negotiator and helped make the buying process fall in line with our budget. She is super responsive and will do what it takes to get the job done. I highly recommend Julie as the primary buying agent."

"Julie Papevies was wonderful to work with! She was so available to us and always had answers - if she didn’t, she’d ask the right people and get back to us very quickly! She was very sweet and has a huge amount of knowledge about the home buy/sell industry. She saved us a lot of headache on more than one occasion by helping guide us in our condo sale - we had 4 offers and received over asking price! We hope to work again with her in the future!"
