Born in Houston, Texas, Myles moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas during his youth and in the early 80’s at age 25 relocated to West Palm Beach, Florida. He began working for a furniture rental company delivering furniture for $6 an hour. “Shortly after we arrived in Florida I saw an ad on TV stating you can buy a home for $49,900, a three bedroom, two baths with a one car garage. All you needed to qualify for purchasing the home was a job and $200 for the application fee. Three days later I got a call from the sales office that I was turned down. That was the best day of my life. I figured if they turned me down then others like me were being turned down. So I got my real estate license to help others like I buy their first home.
“There is a lifetime of opportunities, not once in a lifetime but every hour”. Myles implements this motto by having the courage to identify a challenge or opportunity and take steps to overcoming them. He sold a condo to a fireman. The guy was working only 8 days per month. Myles saw this as an opportunity to have a steady income while still having twenty two days a month to concentrate on building a Real Estate Business. Myles eventually became the real estate agents for his fellow firefighters and helped them become homeowners and investors. A few of them even became agents of his and are still with him today.
During this time Myles became known as MrTownhouse because he was selling more Townhomes and Condos than any other agent in West Palm Beach. This brand name was vital in his success and still is today. In 1990 Myles opened the parent company, Continental Properties, Inc in West Palm Beach. Now 27 years later he owns 9 buildings with offices from Delray Beach to Pt. St. Lucie, a Mortgage company, Title Company, Real Estate Licensing school and referral network. But don’t let this fool you, Myles is still an Investor and is always looking for that next opportunity.
