Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group celebrates 20 years

April 26, 2019
By MEGHAN BRADBURY (news@breezenewspapers.com) , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Two men who teamed up to offer a one-stop shop for individuals buying and selling real estate are celebrating two decades of business this month.

Jeff Miloff said he met Gary Aubuchon through a couple different organizations, the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce and the Cape Coral Construction Industry, more than 20 years ago.

"He was a local builder that had been building in the area and I was a Realtor that was working for another builder," he said. "I decided to leave that company and me and Gary got together and talked about where we wanted to go with our careers. He wanted to push out building and I wanted to push out realty."

Miloff has been in the real estate business for 30 years and Aubuchon has been doing it five years longer, giving both of them a good, long history locally. Miloff said when he moved to the area in 1987, there was only 35,000 people living in the city and anything further than Pelican Boulevard was considered the boonies.

"We saw the whole southwest Cape grow up. It's exciting to see what those neighborhoods have turned out to be. It's exciting to see how the north part of the Cape has grown up," Miloff said.

The partners' concept 20 years ago was to offer a one-stop shopping center at their corporate office to include a mortgage, insurance, interior design, building and real estate company. Miloff said their business plan offers everything in one building.

The Realty Group is part of Aubuchon Team of Companies, which includes Aubuchon Homes; Evaluations by Aubuchon, an interior design firm; Omni One Title; Mortgage One; and McGriff Insurance Services. The main office is located at 4707 S.E. 9th Place.

"We have been successful at it," he explained of the one-stop shopping center. "It makes it nice for our agents to come into a high-end corporate office with a mortgage and insurance broker and actually close the deal there."

In addition, Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group also has a property management office that provides rentals and vacation rentals, which Miloff said has been a strong business.

Miloff said when they first started working together, they used MLS books and caravans to sell property. Fast forward to now, they are using virtual tours to show property, which can be assessed by an individual's phone.

"Our success through the years has come from our dedication to delivering outstanding customer service," Aubuchon said in a prepared statement. "All of our agents strive to create Raving Fans, not just satisfied customers."

Throughout their 20 years of business, Miloff said they have had their ups and downs through the challenging and good times in Southwest Florida. Due to the many different businesses that they operate, when the economy took a hit and the real estate market was struggling, the property management business took off.

"The investors that were buying the houses needed renters, so it worked out well," Miloff said.

With 20 years behind them, the two men continue to have their eyes on the future.

"We look to continue to grow our company smart. We just opened an office in Fort Myers. We got a new model that we are building in Fort Myers and in the near future we are building another model in Cape Coral. We will continue to do what we do best, stay in a smaller area instead of growing too large," Miloff said.

The Fort Myers office is located at 15661 San Carlos Blvd. There is also an Estero Sales Center located at 19976 S. Tamiami Trail.

This fall, Aubuchon Homes will unveil a new 3,600-square-foot West Indies-inspired home, the Carleton, located off McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. This will provide a unique opportunity for the Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group agents to learn about new home construction.

Both Miloff and Aubuchon believe in giving back to the community through charities, something their business has done over the past 20 years. Aubuchon is the president of Habitat for Humanity and Miloff is the past president for the Ronald McDonald House, which he still sits on the board for.

"We also give to Make A Wish and Builders Care. That is important to us. We work hard, play hard and give back to the community hard," Miloff said.

The Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group has contributed more than $50,000 to local charities.

The success of their business is also a testament to their staff, many of whom have been with Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group for a long time. Miloff said he is most proud of everyone working as a team.

"The people who work for us all seem to care about the same thing. Giving back, doing a good quality product, taking care of our customers. That is important to both me and Gary," Miloff said. "It's a little bit of everybody getting involved in the community and making our area successful."
