Here’s why

We believe that your apartment is much more significant than a place to live. It is a place to create memories, experience life, nurture friendships, and discover yourself. We will take care of where you live while you live your life to the fullest.

Mills Difference

We are so confident in our communities, we offer these three promises to our residents:


If you are not happy with your new Mills apartment home, we will release you from your lease within the first 30 days. You will only have to pay for the time you lived with us.


Should you need to move to a more convenient community at Mills Properties, we want to make this move as easy as possible for you. All you have to do is give 30 days’ written notice to your current Mills Community. You will pay no application fee and no termination fee.*


Mills' Maintenance Team aims to respond to any maintenance request within 48 hours of the request.
*At participating communities only.



Our success is driven by a fully engaged company culture, strong internal communication rhythms, and dynamic training program that taps into the expertise and creativity of all employees. To achieve this, we empower our entire team to execute our core values and core purpose in everything they do.
