Connolly McCord Real Estate

Michael McCord Silverfork

Contributor Q&A

What currently fills your days and can you tell us a little bit about your journey to get there?
I have partnered with longtime friend Patrick Connolly to form Connolly McCord Real Estate. We are busy redeveloping residential real estate, as well as offering traditional brokerage services, focusing on North Atlanta. It's a blast...no two days are alike and the fruits of hard work are tangible!!

Who or where do you look for inspiration?
I look to my three kids for inspiration...wanting them to have the best - no matter what - whether that be family, education, faith, sports, hobbies, etc. I want to lay the groundwork and provide them with the opportunity to become happy, healthy, strong minded, tax paying members of society.

Where will you be on your next day off?
Hopefully on my next day off I'll be fly fishing in north Georgia.

What is Atlanta’s food scene missing?
Fresh, portable southeast Asian food. Not the latest fusion concept....I want someone's grandmother churning out her greatest hits. There have been plenty of times I've opened up my food delivery app, yearning for a taste of Thai/Malay/Viet-goodness but have to settle for whatever is defrosted/microwaved/sodium bombed. And yes, I usually give in to the powers that be....my diet be damned.

What elements do you look for in a great dining experience?
A great dining experience includes all the senses, not just taste buds. I'm not in college anymore and settling for the two-pump chump, enlighten me...tell me a story...set the M O O D.

Last meal?
The wedge salad with blackened shrimp from Chops with some good ol' Chattahoochee H2O (tap).
