Vision Makers

Development Team

Dr. Kiran C. Patel’s development arm Vision Makers is led by Bill West and Eric Miller, who have more than 50 years of combined real estate development experience. They had a vision to build a company that could take a dream, one that was imaginary to most, and make it a reality. Bill and Eric’s experience in diverse asset-types enables them to bring the experience necessary to deliver a concept that not only makes sense financially but is developed for its highest and best use. Their most recent projects are the JW Marriott Beach Resort, NOVA Southeastern medical colleges, and the Wyndham Grand Beach Resort.
