Our Guiding Principles


We’ve put a lot of thought into who we are, what we do, and why we do it. These are the principles that guide our actions and team to better serve our communities, our associates, and our partners.

Our mission is to enhance lives by creating great living environments.

Be the best & the rest will follow.

At Mill Creek, “great” is our starting point. Wonderful and creative things happen when we work hard, smart, and together.

At Mill Creek, We Believe…

…our homes are more than just four walls.

…in living where you want to be – not where you have to be.

…in a ‘fix it or find someone who can’ philosophy.

…your home is your runway.

…that what you say matters.

…that pets are people, too.

…in honesty even when it’s not easy.

…your apartment is a 12-month stay-cation.

…your daily grind should be a trip to our coffee bar.

At Mill Creek, we promise to make our customers’ lives easier by helping them find the apartment home they want – and making sure they’re happy long after they move in.

Easy Come, Easy Go Guarantee.

As a national apartment brand, we know a thing or two about moving. With our Easy Come, Easy Go Guarantee, we take care of all the details so your move-in (or move-out, if you must go) is stress – and surprise-free.

100% Happy in Your Space Guarantee.

If you’re not 100% happy in your new apartment home – and we’re not able to make things right – you can move out within the first 30 days of your lease without penalty, no questions asked.

The Curve Ball Guarantee.

In this crazy thing we call life, good and not-so-good things happen. When life throws you a curve ball, we’ve got you covered. If you lose your job or need to care for a family member, you can move out early.

The Customer-First Guarantee.

We attract great people with customer service in their DNA and then empower them with the tools to deliver great service. We’re so confident in our team’s ability to deliver, we guarantee it.
