With a portfolio of over $400 million in sales and rental properties, Minneapolis real estate broker Scott Miller has a long history of success in his trade.
“My job is to make sure that if people are looking for something, it’s something they’re going to like,” said Miller, who started his career as a real estate agent in 1991 in his native Chicago.
“That’s why I’m here.”
Miller says he loves helping people buy and sell properties, whether it be through real estate agents or brokers, but he also knows that being a successful broker can take more than just a simple portfolio of properties.
“When you’re selling and when you’re buying, you have to look at the value and how you can make the sale better for your client,” he said.
“You need to know your client’s budget, their timeline and what you need to be doing in your portfolio to make the best investment.”
Miller’s clients include the likes of Apple, Facebook and Spotify.
In addition to his portfolio of rental properties and real estate investments, Miller has worked with companies like Microsoft, Verizon and Microsoft Research.
He also manages the real estate for the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
“The more I’ve built a portfolio, the better it has been,” he told the Star Tribune.
As a broker, Miller said he enjoys working with real estate clients to find deals that are both fair and profitable for both parties. “
I think you just have to be willing to listen to the other side of the coin, to understand the business side of things.”

“A broker’s job is always about getting the best value, the best price, and being able to do what you’re asked to do,” he added.
Miller says that as a broker he’s always trying to make his clients feel as comfortable as possible.
“As long as you can be confident that your client is going to be happy with your decision, I’m very comfortable with it,” he explained.
“If you don’t feel comfortable, I don’t think you have a job.”
A typical day at Miller’s office involves meetings with buyers and sellers, as well as with his real estate team.
He says he tries to work around the holidays so that he can be available to work on weekends.
For those who don’t like his business style, Miller advises them to try another broker.
“Some of the people I’ve worked with have gotten it,” Miller said.
Miller is currently looking to expand his real property team to include more than 30 properties in the Twin Cities.
He’s looking for a realtor, broker and property manager to work in the Minneapolis area.
He will also be looking for someone to work as a property manager for his new properties.
