Ross Sheppard began his real estate career as a freshman in college, becoming licensed at the age of 18. He attended undergrad at Georgia College for business management and attended graduate school at the University of Georgia for historic preservation. In addition to his major in business management, Ross took minors in political science and rhetoric, and obtained his broker’s license while working toward his master’s degree at UGA.
Ross loves being challenged and is passionate about helping people achieve goals that they otherwise might not be able to achieve without the help of an expert. His background in business and communication makes Ross a sharp negotiator, perceptive advisor, and effective communicator, a skillset that clients rely on throughout the process of buying or selling a home.
In the world of historic preservation, Ross has a broad range of practical hands-on experience rehabilitating and repurposing historic buildings and an understanding of the complex economic and political challenges of historic preservation across the State. For buyers, this means on-site conditions assessments and rehab feasibility calculations. For sellers, this means a unique ability to articulate value to the market, both economic and intrinsic.
Ross is a member of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation and serves on the board of directors for the Flannery O’Connor Andalusia Foundation and the Georgia College Alumni Board. He enjoys volunteering with Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY), teaching personal and societal leadership to Georgia’s brightest young people. In his spare time, you might have guessed, he enjoys working on old houses.
