If Christian Ross looks familiar to you, she either sold you your home or you’ve seen her on an episode of HGTV’s “House Hunters.” With more than 9 years’ experience as an international realtor, the TV personality specializes in luxury properties in Atlanta, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East and Australia.
“What I love most about my profession is all of the wonderful people I have the privilege to meet, the cultures I get to learn more about and ‘the criers’—they cry when they see a home and cry when they close,” she says.
A frontrunner in her industry, Christian was the youngest president (inducted at age 33) of the Women’s Council of Realtors in the organization’s 54-year history. She presides over the Atlanta Chapter, where she empowers women leaders and the community at large. Additionally, her vast international client base and experience in lobbying about property rights in the U.S. made her a natural fit for the 2014 Consumer Communications Committee for the National Association of Realtors. With a huge passion for travel, it’s what she chooses to do in her free time as well, accompanied by her husband, George.
