RLI was launched in 2018 to better serve the real estate needs of the clients of Milliken Forestry Company, Inc. (MFC). Since 1949, MFC has dutifully served its clients by combining decades of land management experience with a sincere appreciation for emotional ties between land investments and landowners.

Growing team and constantly evolving scope of services.

Over time and through the trust garnered by our foresters, many clients have sought MFC’s real estate services for a variety of property acquisitions and liquidations. RLI continues that tradition of dependable and experienced service through its team of dedicated real estate professionals.
