60 Years And Growing.
Miller & Smith was founded in 1964 by David Miller and Gordon Smith, two friends from Harvard Business School who set out to create a local homebuilding company known for world-class design and customer service.
Miller & Smith’s early growth was slow and steady as the company targeted challenging projects that would showcase Miller & Smith’s design savvy and set it apart from mass-market builders. Soon, Miller & Smith earned a reputation for being a design leader and one of the Washington region’s most innovative homebuilders. The company continued to evolve as new opportunities presented themselves and Miller & Smith was able to assemble the right teams and partnerships to capitalize on them. Miller & Smith expanded its core capabilities to include land development, commercial construction and development, and real estate advisory services. Miller & Smith continued to grow very deliberately and strategically, always keeping an eye on how each project would contribute to the success of the company as well as the larger communities Miller & Smith serves. Today, Miller & Smith is proud to be among the Washington region’s largest privately-owned real estate companies. Miller & Smith’s homes division has built more than 6,250 single family homes, 9,600 townhomes, and 2,232 condominiums. Miller & Smith’s Land Development Group has developed more than 13,950 home sites in 134 communities throughout Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.
