Company Founder and Managing Partner
Born and raised in Ohio, Ray Miller has always had a “How can I make this work better?” streak in him. Of course, at the beginning of the Internet age, the bigger question was really “How can I make this work at all?” Early in his career, Ray used his experience with property management and real estate investing to develop advanced, searchable websites for the real estate industry – the first of their kind.
The 1990’s saw Ray working with home builders and realtor groups alike to pioneer the creation of web-powered databases that brought a nation-wide swath of real estate into a single, efficient hub of information. Beginning with a stint at NewList Corporation and later moving on to Homestore.com, Ray’s work set the stage for industry giant, Move.com.
In 2001, and with a number of online success stories under his belt, Ray struck out on his own with the founding of RealTech Services, a Sarasota, Florida-based company with a focus on building and managing websites that are smarter, better, and easier to use.
Today, more than a decade later, Ray and the RealTech Services team are still going strong, delivering elegant, high-end web development services to clients in industries ranging from medical to vacation to property management. And always with the same critical question in mind: “How can I make this work better?”
Partner and Project Manager
Bill Eisenhard has been involved in the construction and implementation of more than 50 database driven websites over the past decade. His specialty is building user friendly websites that make complex tasks easy, from searching and purchasing to accounting and reporting.
One of Bill’s previous web site projects include launching a statewide Public Records database for the state of Florida. This cutting edge public record search website combined the records from more than thirty public record databases into one comprehensive reporting system and became a model for other webmasters nationwide.
Bill understands the needs of both website users and administrators and understands how to balance convenience with consumer and business privacy concerns. When Bill’s not online coordinating a website launch, you can probably find him playing 9-ball or warming up for the world series of poker.
