Executive Vice President
Managing Broker, Lincoln Park
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Jim Miller takes a hands-on approach to his job as executive vice president and managing broker at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty in Lincoln Park. Channeling his passion for helping agents, he leads his team working within the greater Chicago area surrounding their home base, including Old Town, River North, Lakeview, Bucktown and Wicker Park.
Before entering the real estate industry 16 years ago, Miller was a call center director for a decade, managing hundreds of employees at centers around the country. That managerial experience came in handy when, in 2013, Miller transitioned from being a top-producing broker himself to a role recruiting, training and developing luxury brokers for Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. “As a managing broker, it is quite important that one has been a successful broker, built a business and knows the intimate highs and lows of real estate brokerage,” he says. “It helps you gain the respect of your agents and makes it easier to assist them with issues and grow their business.”
Under his direction, Miller’s office has increased sales by 50 percent since 2013. “Many of our agents have doubled their production since joining Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty by using the SIR brand and the business processes that we teach and coach,” he explains, citing the company’s “Take Flight” training program as just one of the ways the firm helps agents stay motivated and grow their own business.
Miller is a member of the Chicago Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. When he’s not working, he can be found reading, traveling and enjoying a nice meal with a glass of wine.
