Dennis “Jake” Miller has been intimately involved in real estate for over 4 decades. With roles ranging from sales associate to project management to broker/owner, Jake has run the full gamut throughout his career. After attending the University of Florida and graduating from Purdue, Jake moved to Sarasota County in 1972.
After getting acclimated to the area he joined Bradway Moore & Associates as a Sales Associate and opened the first branch office in downtown Venice in 1975. While growing his real estate sales portfolio he also partnered with a local developer and home builder to assist with new construction and development. Jake handled all aspects of the sales process as well as designing floorplans, market research and project management throughout the design/build process.
In additional to his work on residential development, he was also an integral part in the development of Stump Pass Marina in Englewood, FL. When the Stump Pass Marina project was completed in 1989, Jake decided to take the next step and purchased Gulf Realty & Associates and operated it as the Broker/Owner.
With intimate knowledge and a focus on Manasota Key, Jake grew the company rapidly not only from a sales perspective but also expanding into vacation rental management. After years of solid growth, over $100M + in sales, and two daughters preparing for college, he decided to sell Gulf Realty & Associates in 2000 but has stayed with the company as a Broker and Real Estate consultant.
