Top real estate agent in California Peter Miller was in the midst of a successful career in magazine publishing when he decided to switch gears. He’d longed for the chance to direct his own professional path, and his wife’s work as a real estate agent inspired him to give the industry a chance. Eighteen years later, Peter has carved out a noteworthy reputation alongside his wife and business partner, Deborah. Now, they head an incisive real estate group that has built their business based on personalized service, strategic execution, and a commitment to their clients’ respective goals.
Today, Peter and his team prefer to go where clients lead, buying and selling all across the Los Angeles region, with a particular specialty in new construction properties. Past and pending projects have taken them to numerous neighborhoods and areas of the city, including Beverly Hills, Mar Vista, West Hollywood, South Bay, and the Valley—to name just a few. All the while, Peter and his team have built a robust portion of their business through repeat and referral clientele—the highest praise clients can give. At the heart of his professional philosophy, Peter cites a commitment to good communication and listening as foremost drivers of his success to date. “Too often, realtors don’t stop talking—but it’s our job to listen,” Peter says. “Buyers and sellers tell you exactly what they want, and what their needs and goals are. If you’re willing to put the time in and listen, this industry will work for you. What we promise is what we deliver, and that’s how we operate as a group. We take the time to get to know our clients and get in touch with what their goals are.”
To market listings, Peter draws upon his prior professional experience in publishing to create compelling print ads and drum up interest in properties headed to market. All the while, he’s witnessed the power of digital marketing through the global platform of his banner company, Keller Williams. Accordingly, he makes major marketing strides online, as well. “The power of our international operation has really surprised me and opened my eyes to just how many people are shopping online,” he says. “I’m a student of the business. I learn something every day and I make sure I stay up-to-date on the market. Each area and project are different, and you can’t use the same strategies every time. You have to elevate your game to meet the needs of your clients. I’m in it every step of the way.” In addition to Peter’s professionalism and willingness to rise to a challenge, he also emphasizes the importance of a last interpersonal connection. “We’re not in competition with anyone else, we’re in competition with ourselves,” he says. “We want to continue to build on the relationships that we have, create new relationships, and retain what we have. It’s one thing to take clients on, it’s another thing to keep them.”
To give back to his Los Angeles community, Peter participates in charitable efforts through Keller Williams. For the past four years, he’s also served as President at CHAMPS Charter School of the Arts in Van Nuys, from which both of his daughters graduated. In his remaining free hours, Peter most enjoys hanging out with Deborah and their two daughters and two dogs, traveling, and trying new wines.
Looking ahead, Peter has plans to continue growing his business, maintaining the client relationships that have kept his business thriving for eighteen years. For now, he’ll continue to serve the aspiring buyers and sellers of the Los Angeles region he calls home. In considering what he has enjoyed most over the course of his nearly two-decade long career, Peter remembers the fulfilment derived from a role serving others. “It’s a really rewarding feeling to help a client from start to finish,” he reflects. “Whether they’re first-time buyers, developers going through entitlement, or a mature couple downsizing—it’s really wonderful to be someone who can help put all the pieces in place and make it work for them.”
