Dan Miller
Potesta & Associates, Inc.
Sr. Scientist
Most of my professional career as an aquatic biologist I have been involved in the commercial production of fish (trout, catfish, talipia, sea bream, red fish, ornamentals) shrimp (Pacific white shrimp) and plants (lettuce, tomotoes, bok choy) for human consumption. My academic career of 11 years was with WVU working in aquaculture for the Extension Service and teaching undergraduates and graduate students. Since 2011 I have worked for Potesta & Associates on the environmental side (versus engineering) and also providing business development leads.

"My mission as a Realtor® is to fulfill each of my client’s Real Estate needs; to educate myself, my clients, and the public about the Real Estate market and industry; to hold myself to the highest standards of ethics and integrity; and to earn the respect of each person I have the privilege of working with."

This is not only my mission statement but how I have successfully navigated my 15-year Real Estate career. I believe success in any vocation starts with an attitude of continual learning, expansion and growth. I have practiced in Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania and now my home state of West Virginia. I bring to the table not only a vast wealth of knowledge gained through experience, but also the understanding that each client and transaction is unique. Whether you are looking for a first home, a next home, a broader investment portfolio, or just answers to your questions, I am here to help.
