Repeat Realty with Jan Hart

Our very own Jan Hart has recently hit a huge milestone in her career. She has sold the same two homes, twice! Both 4070 Paces Ferry Road and 3118 West Addison have been listed and sold by her.

We all know that real estate is a business in which you must work hard to build trustworthy relationships with buyers and sellers. Jan Hart is consistent in her service to each of her clients, and she continues to strive for absolute excellence in every transaction.

For those who don’t know, Jan Hart is a Druid-Hills native and has been a top producer since the beginning of her career when she achieved lifetime member status in the Atlanta Board of Realtors Million Dollar club in just one year. She is one of the six original Beacham and Company REALTORS agents and she specializes in the illustrious neighborhoods of Chastain Park, Buckhead, Sandy Springs and Brookhaven. Jan is also a licensed Florida realtor and offers buying and selling expertise on Amelia Island, her home away from home for 15 years. It is Jan’s commitment to excellence and putting her clients needs first that has allowed her business to grow into what it is today. Photos of the two magical homes are below, and congratulations to Jan Hart for this amazing accomplishment!

4070 Paces Ferry Road NW, Atlanta GA 30327

Security is the key word when it comes to this gated estate.

This private 6BD/7.5 BA home tucked away in a quiet Alpharetta neighborhood is nothing short of luxurious. Its most notable features include a grand two-story foyer, parlor with Oxeye windows, state-of-the-art outdoor covered kitchen, lofty home theater, gym, massage room and wine cellar.

The Beacham Art Series Draws Thousands on Opening Weekend

Atlanta, Georgia – Nationally renowned as one of the most prestigious real estate firms in the country, Beacham & Company continued to expand boundaries with the addition of The Beacham Art Series this past Fall. Curated by an internationally acclaimed artist, photographer, and Beacham & Company’s Senior Marketing Director, Blayne Beacham Macauley, The Beacham Art Series showcased original works of over 55 artists, with pieces displayed for sale at Beacham & Company headquarters in Buckhead. All proceeds from the exhibit were donated to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. This exhibit was composed of paintings, works on paper and photography of various sizes.

Long regarded as one of the most philanthropic companies in Georgia, Beacham & Company has excelled in charitable contributions to the city’s non-profit and civic organizations. “Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has played a crucial role in our immediate family when my son and business partner, Ben, relied on the hospital for his son’s care. Additionally, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has been important to the families of our agents and clients so this is a deeply meaningful and exciting way for us to announce the inaugural Beacham Art Series,” says founder Glennis Beacham. 

“This is a way to connect art and homes with philanthropy, and to do it in a way that’s positive, engaging, and uplifting for the community,” says Macauley. The arts have an uncanny ability to bring people together; it’s a universal language of such. This show was proof of that.

Beacham Gives Back: Make-A-Wish

On September 12th there was a new light inside the Beacham & Company REALTORS® office. 6-year-old Madeline joined our Beacham family in celebrating her wish reveal! Madeline is just like any other 6-year-old, obsessed with all things pink, princesses and My Little Pony. However, her and her family face the battle of Madeline’s diagnosis on a daily basis. This sweet, courageous and loving little girl struggles in managing a malignant rhabdoid tumor. After our time spent with Madeline and her family, we would’ve never known. Though she may be in a constant state of struggle and pain, her smile and laughter filled our office; all we saw was a little girl full of life.

Make-A-Wish Georgia was chosen as this quarter’s Beacham Gives Back beneficiary. Thanks to the outpour of support from the staff & agents here at Beacham & Company, we were lucky enough to be apart in making Madeline’s dream come true. Her wish was to go to Disney World. With families who fight malicious diagnoses like Madeline’s, it becomes challenging for things like this to happen. The financial burden of her illness, and her parents juggling three children, Madeline’s older brother and sister, it was the least we could do in making just one day brighter for sweet Madeline.

The agents and staff here at Beacham & Company came together in turning our office into a night Madeline wouldn’t forget. Madeline was greeted by Princess Nicole (A Beacham agent), who put on her Belle dress and treated Madeline like the little princess that she is. Surrounded by a princess cake, her favorite toys and Mickey & Minnie Mouse ears to celebrate, we created a space to share the heartwarming news, that Madeline and her family would be sent to Disney World.  It is opportunities like these that make us all proud to be on the same team. We came together as a company to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves, and so much bigger than any house we could ever sell. While Madeline and her family continue to fight for her life, we are proud to have given her just one day, where she can hopefully forget about everything except feeling like the princess she deserves to be. It’s been an honor to serve the Make-A-Wish Georgia foundation and we look forward to continuing our support. Making magic happen any way we can!

Beacham Donates $22,650 to Make-A-Wish®

During the second quarter of 2019, Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff raised funds for Make-A-Wish® Georgia, donating a total of $22,650 to the non-profit between April 1st and June 30th.

Make-A-Wish® Georgia will use the money raised to ‘grant wishes’ to children facing critical illnesses. Since the chapter’s inception in 1995, it has impacted a staggering 8,000 young lives, granting once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and experiences to “wish kids” and their families. Childhood illnesses can be heartbreaking and daunting for children and their families to endure; the mission of Make-A-Wish® Georgia is to bring light to these situations that seem unbearably dark, and to provide each child with a reason to keep fighting.

For some wish kids, this may look like a “wish to go” (for example, to Disney World). For others, it could be a “wish to have” (a treehouse, a puppy…), a “wish to meet” (perhaps their favorite athlete, actor, or singer), or even a “wish to be” (i.e. an astronaut for a day).

Make-A-Wish® Georgia was chosen as this quarter’s Beacham Gives Back beneficiary in part due to a matching opportunity which was presented by the organization’s national chapter. Because Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff raised more than $20,000, the Make-A-Wish® national chapter matched Beacham’s contribution 2-1, resulting in an astounding total of $67,950 entering Make-A-Wish® Georgia’s coffers!

This September, Beacham & Company, REALTORS® agents and staff will have the exciting opportunity to actually meet one of the children whose wishes their donations made possible, and to participate in a “wish reveal,” during which the child will learn that their wish is going to be granted. Stay tuned for more at that time – we can’t wait!

If you would like to submit a charity for consideration, you can email us at info@beacham.com. Please keep in mind, that must be approved by our agents and should give away a vast majority of the money they raise to the causes they support. If you know a Beacham agent, we encourage you to contact them directly about participation in this program.

Growing up with a father in Civil Service, she spent most of her childhood moving frequently with most of her time spent in Germany. She is committed to helping others make a smooth transition whether across town or across the country. Active in the Atlanta Community, she has been Chair of both the Hope and Will Ball for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and The Beastly Feast benefiting Zoo Atlanta.

She is committed to blending this expertise and high level of personal service to her clients at Beacham. While the process of buying and selling a home is different for everyone, we are all looking for the perfect place where “our story” will unfold.  Buying a home is one of the single most important purchases we can make. Your home is where you will close the door at the end of the day- it is your refuge and sanctuary. It is a place where we celebrate the milestones in our lives with friends and family and it is an investment in the future. Tara and the entire team at Beacham believe that homes are bought and sold based not only upon the traditional use of technology, but more importantly, it is about relationships built and kept, upholding the highest integrity, and providing the utmost dedication to professionalism and personal service. Being a long-time resident of Atlanta enables Tara to share her knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, shopping and restaurants. Tara is excited to bring her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for homes to your home buying process – whether it is helping first time homebuyers navigate the process successfully or providing help in the luxury market, Tara can help with it all.

Tara’s husband, Mark, is with JP Morgan and they have two daughters – Sarah and Meredith. Sarah is a teacher at The Lovett School and Meredith, is in Interior Design. During her free time, she enjoys running, reading, playing tennis, and spending time with friends and family.
