With more than 27 years’ experience in residential real estate, I feel very fortunate to be affiliated with Ansley Atlanta Real Estate. Meeting the needs of both buyers and sellers requires experience, integrity, enthusiasm, patience, and superior listening skills. I strive to combine these qualities along with a thorough knowledge of the market and dedication to my clients.
I attended The University of Kentucky (www.uky.edu) and The American University, earning my marketing degree. During college, I was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Afterward, I married my high school sweetheart and business partner Joe Cross. We enjoy our three daughters and are involved with their activities and schools – Morris Brandon Elementary (www.morrisbrandon.com), Pace Academy (www.paceacademy.org) and The University of Alabama (www.ua.edu/). We are members of the All Saints Episcopal Church (www.allsaintsatlanta.org), Ansley Golf Club (www.ansleygolfclub.org) and when time allows we enjoy Alta tennis, (www.altatennis.org), gardening and traveling with our daughters.

For exceptional customer service and professional assistance with your real estate needs, call Jane and Joe Cross.
Jane listed our home in Atlanta and is doing a tremendous job making sure we get the most exposure for sale. Her assistant is Joe Cross (her husband) and he is also tremendously knowledgeable. You can’t go wrong with the Cross team.
My name is Cathy Torie and I can’t say enough about Joe and Jane Cross. We met almost 10 years ago when our family relocated to Atlanta. Having young children at the time, Jane kept us focused on specific neighborhoods that offered the best school options. We ended up purchasing a home through Jane and couldn’t have been happier. Six years later we decided to “down size” in anticipation of our two oldest going to college and again we asked Jane and Joe to help. We ended up selling our home at a great price and we owe it all to them. We have referred friends to them in the past and it’s always the same feedback – their terrific. If we move again, there’s no doubt who we’ll call – Jane and Joe Cross.
Joe and Jane Cross made the very difficult process of relocating to the right neighbor a success. They worked hard with us for several months, looking at literally every house on the market while learning about our priorities and our desires for our new home. They knew Castlewood was the kind of neighborhood we sought and had learned enough to know the home we eventually purchased was perfect in every detail even before they took us to see it. I hope we never need them again, but they will be the first one’s we’ll call if the need arises.
The Cross Team not only found us the house we always wanted but steered us through an 11-month short sale purchase process while simultaneously pulling a rabbit out of the hat at the last minute and selling our previous home. No one works harder than these two and we were exceptionally pleased with all they did for us. It sounds a little incestuous but in the same six-month period they found a new home for my brother, sold my Mother’s home and found a new home for my Mother. That is five transactions this year for the Hawkins.
Working with Jane and Joe Cross was an absolute pleasure! They are professional, responsible and always kept our best interest in mind. We especially liked their knowledge of the Buckhead area. They helped us find a place that would be the best fit for our family. I would recommend Jane and Joe to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Over the past 19 years, my wife and I have purchased three homes and sold two. Jane Cross was our agent in all five transactions. In every case, she did an excellent job representing us as buyers and as sellers. Jane is smart and hard working. She puts her client’s best interest first in every situation. She is also a pleasure to do business with and her calm and wise ways keeps unnecessary drama to a minimum. We recommend Jane highly to anyone considering buying or selling a home.
You helped us make a good decision in a difficult time for our family and I love you for it! I wish I had you in Birmingham! You stayed positive and focused on getting the property sold and closed in a timely manner and went above and beyond with your efforts to get all of the details completed for a smooth closing.
Joe and Jane Cross possess an “old school” work ethic, rarely seen anymore, especially among Residential Real Estate Agents. Their client centered methods give new meaning to the term “full-service”. We had an extraordinary experience from pre-listing thru closing. Based on our prior experience with seven past property transactions, “we didn’t have a lot of faith in this “dreaded process.” Once on board with the Cross’s we were continually shocked and surprised at the consistently meticulous and professional service we received. Their dedication was “above and beyond”. They know most of the agents in town, which truly escalates their marketing capability. Our home was shown prior to being listed to several buyer prospects. It was truly all the “extras” that impressed us the most: Always there to turn on lights, put the breakfast dished away in the dishwasher, sweep or vacuum, water a plant. And most importantly, they attended every showing. We all know that a potential buyer “rates” a house in about the first 5 minutes, a yes, maybe or no. And if they leave a house with unanswered questions, they tend to move on to the next listing. Having someone who knows the details about your house available to answer questions is a huge selling advantage. Joe and Jane Cross are the caliber of realtor that the rest of the industry should emulate"
