Son of Lennar’s Stuart Miller arrested on domestic violence charges
David Miller, a real estate agent with BHHS EWM, accused of strangling his girlfriend
David Miller, son of Lennar Corp. Executive Chairman and co-CEO Stuart Miller, was arrested in Miami Beach on charges of domestic violence this past weekend against his girlfriend.
Miller is a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty and previously worked at Lennar, according to state records and his LinkedIn. He was booked at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami on Sunday morning.
Miller, 35, faces a felony charge of domestic violence battery by strangulation and a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence. Miller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Miami Beach Police officers were called to Miller’s penthouse in South Beach early Sunday, according to a copy of the police report that was obtained by The Real Deal. Miller told police he didn’t physically hurt the victim, who he has been dating for about a year. TRD is not naming the victim, who is also a real estate agent.
Miller’s girlfriend told police officers that after a verbal fight with Miller, he threw a glass bottle and picture frame, then “grabbed her hair, pulled her, pushed her to the ground and choked her for approximately 20 to 30 seconds,” according to the report.
“The victim then revealed a history of unreported domestic violence incidents with the defendant,” the report states. Officers wrote that she had red marks and scratches on her neck that were consistent with strangulation.
Miller is one of Stuart Miller’s four adult children. He does not appear to be currently employed at Lennar, but David Miller lists himself as a development associate at the company since 2011. He’s been licensed with BHHS EWM since 2016, state records show. EWM declined to comment, according to a spokesperson.
In 2020, Miller was involved in the $49.5 million sale of his father’s spec mansion at 22 Star Island Drive. He lists the address of 6 Star Island Drive in Miami Beach on his real estate license, but he lives in the penthouse at 350 Meridian Avenue in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth neighborhood, according to the police report. Property records show he paid about $5.6 million for the 3,000-square-foot, three-bedroom unit in 2015.
Miller’s grandfather, Leonard Miller, co-founded Lennar with his business partner Arnold Rosen in 1954. His father, Stuart Miller, was CEO of Lennar from 1997 to 2018, before becoming executive chairman. He also became co-CEO last year.
