Michael Ross is a native of Atlanta, with deep personal and professional connections to the local community. After attending University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and a tour of duty in the Air Force, Michael joined Swank, Incorporated as a National Sales Representative selling to national retail chains throughout the U.S.
With a passion for clothing and a talent for the retail business, Michael joined Guffey’s of Atlanta as a co-owner in 1976, and
successfully delivered exceptional results and personalized service for over 24 years. Michael then sold his interest in Guffey’s and opened his own high-end store in Buckhead, called Michael Christopher & Co., specializing in fine men’s clothing. In 2010, he secured his Georgia Real Estate license and joined Harry Norman Realtors of Atlanta.
In addition to his professional success, Michael has been active and supportive within various Atlanta boards and charities. He has served as President of the Colony Square Homeowner’s Association and as a board member of the Illien Adoption Agency, as well as a volunteer to the Open Hand Atlanta.
His love of travel has taken him to Europe, Asia, South America and throughout the U.S.A. However, Michael always enjoys returning to his home in Morningside or to his weekend
townhome in Serenbe, (with his partner of 20 years and their Golden Retriever).
