The Mills Act Program

The City of Redlands currently invites applications from property owners to participate in the city’s Mills Act program, designed to encourage the preservation of historic properties in Redlands.

The Mills Act Program is an economic incentive program statewide in California for the restoration and preservation of qualified historic buildings by private property owners.
Participation by the City in the California Mills Act Program was approved by the City Council on November 20, 2012.  The California Mills Act Program was first enacted in 1972, and grants participating cities and counties the authority to enter into contracts with owners of qualified historic properties who actively participate in the rehabilitation, restoration, preservation, and maintenance of their historic properties.

Since the costs of doing so can be high, and ultimately have the effect of prohibiting preservation activities, property tax relief can offset these costs. Thus, the Mills Act program is offered as a strong incentive for property preservation work.  

Property Tax Savings

Property taxes are recalculated using a formula in the Mills Act and State Revenue and Taxation Code. The average savings for individual properties under the Mills Act contract is between 20 and 60 percent. The full amount of the tax savings received by the property owners must be used to finance the preservation, maintenance and improvements to the property. If a property owner defaults on the conditions, the City may cancel the contract and the owner would be subject to a cancellation fee.


Under the program approved by the City Council, the City will accept up to seven applications per year, including five residential properties and two commercial properties. Each contract that is accepted or approved will include a term of 10 years, and will renew automatically each year. 


The eligibility and program guidelines include:

Assessed value of less than $1 million for residential properties with no limit for commercial properties
Property must be located in the City of Redlands
Property must be privately owned
The property is not currently exempt from taxation; and
The property is listed in a National, State or City official register.

What our clients are saying  

I like the team concept: David is excellent at marketing and loves to do open houses; Kristin does an excellent job handling and monitoring the paperwork trail. Together they make things happen!


~ Karl

Can't say enough good things about our home buying experience with Kristin and David. They were always there when we had questions and issues throughout the process. They are very knowledgeable in the business and we highly recommend their services. Thank you Kristin and David for giving us peace of mind.


~ D. Perez

He got my business and will have my future business because he's an awesome guy and helped my wife and me with a lease long before we were looking to buy. Even when we were in a complete state of indecision, David was patient and promised us he'd find us the perfect house... And he did.


~ S. Rhoads

They were the perfect team of Realtors. Kristin was very knowledgeable, professional , and represented my interests perfectly. She was very prompt and efficient from the moment we began. David was very prompt to act upon what we are looking for and really listened to get what we wanted. I could not be more grateful to them both.


~ J. Palomino

Kristin and David have been our Realtors for our last three transactions. Together they make a perfect team. Buying and selling homes can be an emotional roller coaster. Kristin and David have always been able to put our minds at ease during any situation all the while taking care of business on the technical end of the buying/selling process. They are great about keeping us well informed and holding our hands through every step. We highly recommend Kristin and David for all of your real estate transactions.


~ K. Weaver

I first hired Kristin and David back in 1999 when I bought my first house in Redlands. Since then, I have bought two other homes (my Beaumont home in 2005 and my current home in 2011) and once again hired Kristin and David as my Realtors. With Kristin's extensive knowledge on the ins-and-outs of all the tedious paperwork and Davids fantastic people skills, you wont go wrong with this realty team!


~ S. Andrews

I have used Kristin and David on each of my last three houses. They are very knowledgeable in the Redlands area and took a personal interest to make sure I found the right house for me. It was a great experience.


~ M. Janzen

David and Kristin will find the right house for you and think of your needs before their commission. They have a great knowledge of Redlands and surrounding areas and once they know what you are looking for, will be able to find the perfect fit for you. David has a talent for matching people with the perfect home and Kristin is amazing with all the legal stuff. I will never buy another house without them!!! They helped us buy our home, helped my sister and her family find the perfect home and have helped others we have recommended them to. They do an outstanding job and I am proud to recommend them to my friends and co-workers.


~ T. Skousen

Kristin and David sold us the most beautiful home in South Redlands beating a lot of competition in a highly competitive market! They have a wonderful reputation with other agents and sellers, they work at a smooth and fast pace, and we would not have gotten this house without them and their dedication and hard work! Thank you for our dream home!!!! ??????


~ Candice Cabanilla

Kristin & David have executed two property transaction with true professionalism, speed and a very caring attitude. Regardless of the time of the day, when problems occurred, both took care of them immediately. Both, my wife and I, knew that we were in capable hands and we can highly recommend Kristin & David as the "Go-To" professionals for all property transactions.
