Janet was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, the heart of the Bluegrass Region. She played Division I Tennis at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  After college Janet returned to her hometown where she earned a Master’s Degree in Athletic Administration from the University of Kentucky while working for the athletic department.

Janet left the world of athletics in 2005 to start her career in Pinehurst, NC as a Residential Real Estate Broker.  The Byrd Family has called Wilmington, North Carolina home since 2013 when they relocated from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for her husband, Jason, to start a career with Live Oak Bank. They have two boys, Langston and Emmet, who currently attend a public year round school, Codington Elementary School.

Janet has over 15 years of real estate industry experience in 3 different markets.  She has an appreciation for historic homes and the desire to educate her clients about the real estate process.  As a Pricing Strategy Advisor, she feels determining property values depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence to be able to properly counsel clients on pricing whether you are Buying or Selling.

LPG Impact Initiative


We love our community and want to use our time, talent and resources to give back and invest in the place we call home. As part of the Lanier Property Group Impact Initiative each agent has chosen a non-profit to highlight and support this year. For every transaction the agent closes, Lanier Property Group Team donates $25 to their chosen charity. Many of the agents match the donation financially and donate their time to support these causes that are close to their hearts. We are proud to support our agents' interests in giving back and these unique and impactful organizations doing such good work in Wilmington and the surrounding areas.

Janet's Chosen Charity:


Kids Making It is one of my favorite non-profits in Wilmington. I was first introduced to them when a friend of mine starting working there. He and his wife (who also now works there) spoke so highly of the program, and for good reason!  It is a wood working program which teaches at risk kids valuable woodworking skills as well as life skills to help them succeed. Every time I visit the Kids Making It store to purchase a closing gift for a client, I am inspired...and the staff are always so friendly, so please visit them at 617 Castle Street.
