Janie joined Childress Real Estate in December 2018. Janie grew up in Calhoun, the daughter of a lifelong resident and local merchant. Her roots run deep in this community as does her husband Zane’s. After graduating high school, she moved away and then settled in the metro Atlanta area. Janie returned to Calhoun in November 2007.
Following a career in the corporate legal world, and a grueling 11 year commute from our area to downtown Atlanta Janie retired at the end of December 2018 to pursue her real estate dreams. After receiving her paralegal certification in late 2002 from Kennesaw State University, she decided to pursue her real estate license and was licensed in Georgia in March 2003.
Janie was affiliated with Avenues of Atlanta Real Estate until November 2018 and then moved her license to Childress Real Estate. Janie has continued to keep her license active since 2003, stayed current with all Continuing Education requirements and up to date with all aspects of the industry and market trends. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Georgia Association of Realtors, and the North West Metro Area of Realtors.
Real Estate has been an interest since purchasing her first home in 1977, and then selling her first family home in 1984. It became a passion when relocating her young family to another metro Atlanta county and realizing all the amazing aspects of the business. Janie is ready and willing to make your real estate dreams come true, whether it is buying, selling or a combination of both.
