Janet was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, the heart of the Bluegrass Region. She played Division I Tennis while pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Administration at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Eventually, Janet worked for the Department of Athletics as an Academic Advisor for student-athletes and earned a master’s degree in Athletic Administration from the University of Kentucky.
Janet moved to Pinehurst, NC, where the beauty of the area and her insatiable desire to assist others led her toward a career in real estate. Janet continued to work in real estate after a move and gained the knowledge of the historic Pittsburgh real estate market (and her sons, Langston and Emmet) while living on the historic North Side of Pittsburgh with her husband, Jason.
The Byrd Family relocated to Wilmington in 2013. Janet brings over 10 years of real estate experience to the Lanier Property Group and a wealth of knowledge from working in two very different real estate markets. She has an appreciation for historic homes and the desire to educate her clients about the real estate process.
