Chad has 15 years of experience trading futures and options prior to becoming a broker. His breadth of experience includes trading treasuries, equity indexes, and commodities on numerous exchanges in Chicago, New York, Osaka, and Singapore. This unique business background gives him a keen insight into financial and housing market trends, and how they will affect real estate. The attention to detail and ability to multitask necessary in a trading environment translate perfectly into real estate, where you can be sure to experience a smooth transaction when buying or selling your home.
Chad recently joined @properties as part of a leading real estate team because @properties is the No. 1 full-service residential broker in the city of Chicago, 2nd largest brokerage in Illinois, and 21st largest in the United States. But his real estate background goes back much further and runs deeper than that. Growing up, his father owned his own real estate brokerage, a property management company, and a development company, and Chad was involved from a young age in many aspects of real estate. He also currently owns and manages investment property. So coming back to real estate after a career in trading and finance was "like coming home."
As a result of his vast experience, Chad's clients receive something far more valuable than his expert real estate and market advice. They also receive the confidence they've made the right choice. When listing a home, you can count on the use of the latest marketing technology in the industry, spanning every medium. In addition to the standard brochures, mailers, post-cards, newspapers, email, websites, Multiple Listing Service, and street-signs, Chad also uses extensive company and personal marketing networks. Chad's approach to assisting buyers hinges on discovering the needs & wants of his clients, to efficiently comb through all the available housing for the perfect fit.
Chad graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and grew up near Milwaukee. In the past fifteen years, he has lived in both Chicago and San Francisco. He has lived in many different neighborhoods around Chicago including Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Greektown, Downtown, Bucktown, Logan Square, and currently lives in the South Loop.
When not working tirelessly to market or find your new home, Chad's favorite things to do are sailing and running in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, reading, playing guitar, and spending time with his family year round.
"The most exciting and gratifying part of my job has been overcoming all the inherent challenges that arise when you're buying or selling real estate. I like meeting new people, and helping them accomplish their real estate goals. I strive, in every transaction, to do such a good job that my clients feel comfortable and compelled to recommend me to anyone they know that may need a Realtor. If I can do that, I know I've done my job."
Clients are saying:
"Chad was great and helpful. He was indispensable in making the process go as smoothly as it did. He was there from looking at our initial open house to the closing table offering insight and knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods and real estate processes."
"Chad Miller is a one in a million, smart, knowledgeable, honest, and most likely the hardest working real estate agent you can find. I would use him every time and I highly recommend him - he is the best! No matter how long it took, how picky I was, or how detailed the questions, Chad always remained willing and able to do whatever it took to find the correct answers. He always went above and beyond the normal scope of duty. His expertise is unparalleled. He is, quite simply, the best! We are so lucky to have found him."
"As first time home buyers, we could not have asked for a better agent than Chad. He was so responsive and helpful, making sure we knew exactly what we needed and what was coming next each step of the way. When the deal got tricky, he was smart, transparent, and supportive. He helped us connect with a top notch lender and lawyer, and was always available when we had a question or concern. I honestly believe that with any other agent we wouldn’t have made it through to close. We cannot recommend Chad enough, we’ll only ever work with him in the future."
"I can say with complete honesty that Chad was extremely reliable, knowledgeable, and helpful with my search for living in a new city! He went above and beyond with making sure that I found the right place and gave me a very respectable and honest opinion regarding any questions I had. Definitely the best experience with a housing search I have ever had! I highly recommend him."
"We used Chad Miller to sell our house in Logan Square. He was knowledgeable and professional in selling our house. It was a stressful time for us as we were relocating north to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Chad made this process much easier and sold our house quickly and with the value for which we had hoped. I highly recommend using Chad for selling your Chicago home."
