Matthew Miller is a graduate of the University of Michigan, holds a broker’s license and the following designations – CRS, GRI, ABR, SRES, SFR, e-PRO, and GREEN and is an annual recipient of the brokerage’s highest award for real estate production.

Education and connecting with the industry has been a priority for Matt, who has attended several annual Michigan Realtors® conventions along with the Broker Summit and Michigan Realtors® Achieve Conference for upcoming association leaders and as well as several annual National Association of Realtors conventions as well as the NAR leadership summit in Chicago. 

Matthew Miller invests time in many community organizations and causes. As a member of our Board of Directors for many years, Matt has helped organize the Festive Affair, an annual event to benefit the Salvation Army Staples Family Center in Ann Arbor. He chaired this event three different years to help address homelessness in Washtenaw County. He has also been highly involved with the Ann Arbor Jaycees and the many service projects they put on locally and has received awards as the Chairperson of the Year as well as Most Dedicated Jaycee. Both he and his wife, were members of the Marching Band at the University of Michigan, and they both enjoy volunteering their time with the Band Alumni Association. Matt has chaired their annual golf outing multiple times and served 9 years on their Board of Directors.  He and his wife endowed a scholarship at U of M and were excited to give their first scholarship to a marching band member last fall. 

It is one of Matt’s greatest honors to have served as the President of the Ann Arbor Area Board Of REALTORS®. He initially became involved with our local association by serving on the Education Committee, where he later served as chair. He has more recently served on our Finance and Investment Committee and also served for 6 years on our Board of Directors. This individual also regularly encourages both new and experienced agents to get involved at the committee level as an opportunity to learn and meet fellow REALTORS®.
