Missy Miller Aldave
Founded by Nancy Miller in 1990, The Miller Team at ReMax Advantage Realty began as an individual-agent operation. However, Miller quickly realized that to provide the level of service she wanted, she would need to surround herself with a team. She added her daughter, Missy Miller Aldave, as a buyer’s agent and then an assistant to handle the day-to-day activities of home sales.
“When you are born and raised in real estate and the topic of every dinner is real estate, your qualifications are based upon your ability to hold your own when presented with a real estate challenge or debate,” says Miller Aldave. “Sounds silly, but it’s in our blood. Our next generation is preparing by choosing real estate classes at Johns Hopkins.”
Quick Tip: “Never leave the office angry … it can make a family dinner awkward!”
“Although at ReMax, only one individual can be considered the ‘team leader,’ with three very experienced family members, our thought is that three brains, six eyes, six hands and 30 fingers are much better, and we use that to our advantage,” says Miller Aldave. “Each one of us brings something very unique to the table.”
Miller Aldave’s goal is to continue her mother’s vision for the company “and to continue to build a legacy that would make our parents and grandparents proud.”
