As founder and CEO of Miles Properties, Daniel J. Miles upholds an active, hands-on leadership style that is accountable and accessible, and sets the tone for the company. In 1989, Daniel bought his first property a 24-unit apartment complex in the Atlanta area. He renovated it, managed it and eventually sold it. This early experience sparked his passion for the business of real estate, especially the importance of pinpointing an undervalued property. Miles Properties strategically invests in major metropolitan growth areas, searching for value-creating deals. Headquartered in Atlanta, the company has grown from purchasing and managing properties in the metropolitan Atlanta area to an ever-expanding national presence. Markets range from Washington, D.C. to West Palm Beach, Fla., from Atlanta to Orlando, Fla., from New York City to Dallas, from Baltimore to Tampa and St. Petersburg, Fla. Each of these metropolitan areas has its distinct characteristics. Understanding these unique aspects is key to the Miles team s success in each market.
