Living in Virginia, we just bought an olive tree online around 4 weeks ago. Even traveling through the cold weather it looked healthy when it arrived. We checked the roots and it had no signs of rot so we replanted in well draining soil. After replanting we gave it a good dose of water so it could get settled, then slowly we watered less and less until we developed a schedule of once a week. The tree receives about 6-7 hours of sunlight in our south facing sun room, with slight variation during the winter days. Recently the tree has started to lose about a third of its healthy green leaves on the lower part of each branch. The tree is still putting out new leaves at the tip of each branch.

Should we be worried?

Its probably transplant shock. Not only from repotting but also being in a new environment. If it is still putting out new leaves it will be OK. Having said this I would still get some SuperThrive and use as directed.
