Meet Janice Overbeck, Realtor Role Model and 2021 Rising Stars Top 10
Janice Overbeck | Age 36
CEO of The Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team
In 2014, Janice Overbeck decided to take her future into her own hands. She pulled from her years in real estate development, got her license and founded her own real estate and home renovation company, The Janice Overbeck Real Estate Team, with her husband. She’s a hardworking leader, role model and mom of four, on top of running her own business. But, she’ll be the first to tell you, there’s nothing she’d rather be doing.
How do you give back to your community?
We founded our charity, JO Gives, Inc., in 2015 with the mission to support animal advocacy locally and abroad. We host local low-cost pet vaccination clinics monthly and are currently spearheading Project Mexico, where we’ll host free spay and neuter pet clinics in Mexico to help with their overpopulation issues. Another passion of mine is bringing awareness to ALS after my father passed away from it in 2015. Not only do I do everything I can to raise awareness for the disease, but I also host fundraisers for the Emory ALS Center. I currently serve on the Keep Cobb Beautiful board, and my mission is to educate others on eliminating the use of plastics.
What plans do you have next?
Most recently, I received the 2021 Georgia Association of REALTORS® Good Neighbor Award for my volunteer work in our local community. I was given a grant toward JO Gives, Inc. that will endorse future projects for the charity in the Atlanta area and abroad.
How do you stay centered?
Counterbalancing life with building a top-producing business over a decade while having and raising four little girls has been a challenge! But we find ways to spend time together as a family, enjoying what our community has to offer. We love to go to White Water, visit Red Top Mountain and hike Kennesaw Mountain, plus we have a chicken farm in our backyard, and I absolutely love it.
