Mike is the only child of R. Pete McCall, a champion trap shooter, and Patricia Davis, a retired Federal warden. His parents divorced when he was only five years old. Living with his mother afforded him the opportunity to grow up all over the country, but did not allow him to put down roots anywhere. That is until his junior year of high school.
It was at this time he and his mom moved to Georgia. This is where he met his wife. They have two sons, Garen and Joshua. Unfortunately, Michael and she divorced after thirteen years. Mike is now the proud ‘Pop Pop’ to five grandchildren that keep life interesting, to say the least.
Mike’s first grownup job was working in the maintenance department for the Clayton County Board of Education at the age of nineteen. Seven years later he changed jobs to sell manufactured homes along with doing electrical work, and constructing porches and decks. Mike expanded his work into renovation, remodel and new home construction. He also learned wood working along the way.
For a while he even held various positions in the private sector, but soon returned to his passion of renovating houses built in the 1920’s around the Atlanta area.
Mike met Seth Chandlee through a local celebrity who is friends with them both. This friend introduced Mike to Seth who tried a few times to get Mike to come to work for him. And with each invitation Mike had too many commitments to fulfill. Finally, a few months back, Seth called again, and it was at a perfect time. Mike says it has been rewarding to take on a ‘big boy’ job and be responsible to so many team members and clients. He finds it amazing to be a part of such a large ‘extended family’ while gaining knowledge and experience working with them. Everyone at the Chandlee companies appreciates Mike’s humility and enthusiasm.
