2018 40 Under 40: Matt Miller, 39

Owner, Schnoebelen Miller LLC

Posted online

Updated: March 22, 9:08 a.m.

Matt Miller had just started up his real estate firm Schnoebelen Miller LLC in January 2017 when, months later, business partner John Schnoebelen was diagnosed with cancer. While Schnoebelen received treatment in St. Louis, Miller ran all aspects of their new business on his own – overseeing the design and renovation of the office, and caring for his newborn daughter at home.

In the last year, Miller’s formed more than five investment partnerships, closing on more than $5 million in real estate. Miller says its others’ trust in him, his expertise and his judgement that’s brought him this far.

When did you realize you had grown up? The moment I realized how horrible of a headache I’ll get if I don’t have a little coffee in the morning. 

What was your professional aha moment? A job title is somewhat meaningless. More money isn’t always best. For something to last professionally, there has to be some enjoyment associated with it other than just making money.

Top secret alias if you worked for the CIA? Matt Miller. No one would know which Matt Miller.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Cure childhood cancer.

What app gets you through the day? Headspace keeps me calm most days. When I’m with my daughter, its a tie between Balloonimals and KidloLand.
