TOP 5: Updates from Q1

1. Roers ndsu "spin the wheel" campaign

As the Official Off-Campus Housing Sponsor of NDSU Athletics, Roers is able to provide excellent housing options for students near NDSU. We have a unique offering different from our competitors, as we not only manage the residential properties around campus, we designed and built many of them. We look forward to this partnership and providing a great convenient place for students, athletes and faculty to live. 

We are excited to announce a campaign to showcase our properties around campus. One lucky person will receive a $250 Visa Gift Card and Yeti Cooler! There are other great prizes such as a Roomba, Google Home, a Bose Speaker, and Roers Swag Bags. This year’s campaign is simple. Those who wish to play follow the link, enter their name and email and they get to spin the Roers wheel for their chance at one of the smaller prizes or the grand prize! Watch for us to share a post on the ROERS Facebook page! 

2. newman center coming to life

Here’s an update from Project Manager, Alex Rubick:

With the Spring season finally approaching, construction crews are still hard at work at the St. Paul Newman Center. Last month, we accomplished yet another milestone by successfully erecting the steeple approximately 140’ in the air.  This amazing structure can be seen miles away as you approach the NDSU campus. As finish work proceeds, the attention to detail demonstrated by all crews onsite is really quite astonishing. Area A is nearing completion with hopes to have the Church Staff take over this summer. Framing crews are showing great progress in the Chapel Area, preparing the alter space for a construction crew from Italy to arrive onsite to install mosaic artwork.”

3. RPMR: Renewal goals crushed!

An update from Lindsey Fischer

Fargo: The leasing team is doing an amazing job with leasing units for this next leasing season. At all properties in North Fargo we are at least 40% higher on occupancy for next year than we were this same time last year! That is incredible! We had a record year in leasing one of our properties to 100% faster than we ever have managing this building. We don’t have too many units left available for next year and they are going very quickly!

Dickinson: Traffic is really starting to pick up out in western North Dakota. The team continues to focus on resident retention from the time a prospect makes first contact with us to the day they move out of their unit. They continue to see many renewals coming in and new leases are being signed daily all while still training and coaching new staff members!

Way to go team!

4. Missouri Slope

The Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center project in Bismarck is finally done! 

What a better way to give you the true experience of the project than to get a first hand review by someone who was on site the entire time.

Head to our newest BLOG to read up on Phil Keller’s point of view when recapping the experience.

-Ivy Pokorny, Roers West Admin Assistant and Accounts Payable Assistant. I’ve been with Roers for 6 months. 

2. What does a day in your role entail?

-I do pretty much anything to help the office run smoothly. I mainly answer phones and process invoices for the Roers West office. But I’ve also started helping RPM with invoicing and data entry as well as Marketing with proposals and getting powerpoints/material ready for interviews.

-I love how I’m utilized in multiple areas of the company and I’m getting experience I wasn’t expecting by joining Roers. That keeps my days busy and its never repetitive. I also love how understanding and family orientated the company is, as a single mom of 2 that means so much!

Q1 peer recognition award winners

Mataya Heisler

roers management



Mataya was asked to step in and help when another team member unexpectedly retired. She did not hesitate and stepped up to the challenges to help Roers.

Gilbert Rodriguez




Gilbert has been so great to work with at demo work after the water incident at The View. He has jumped into this project hands on and has taken it on with patience, especially while residents are still living in some of the units. He communicates well with the View staff, construction, and vendors. He has been a great addition to the Roers team.

Larry Bjerkebeck

property management



Larry has experienced some hardships the last few months, but has stayed positive and proactive at work. He works hard and makes sure he gets the job done. He is friendly with tenants and always makes them feel comfortable when he is in their unit doing work. Larry always takes a minute to stop by the leasing office to say "hi" and make sure the property ambassadors are having a good day.

Al Sondrol




Al runs a good site. He promotes safety, recognizes safety concerns and corrects them. I think he really cares about the people working with him and wants everyone to go home safe each day. 

ring the bell

If you heard some cow bell ringing lately, it is because of the celebration of new business roers has recently been awarded.

Check out how our employees have been living out our core values at work!


believe all possibilities are endless.


do the right thing.


keep learning


providing premier service.


give back & give often.


trust that long-term relationships matter.

Scott & Lisa and the HR team have spent numerous hours on a new HR system. The system presented numerous issues for the company and therefore the decision was made to go back to the previous system. There hard work is much appreciated and the hard decision comes with a great deal of “respect “and we have the “opportunity” to find what will work best for the company in the future.
Matt Thomas is always helping every PM, Super, Admin etc with questions/issues that arise. He is very much a team player and helps everyone out all the time.
With the staff changes, we have had a lot of account errors and Angie & Mataya have just dug right in and helped get to the bottom of what is going on and if items pulled correctly from our old software.
Ivy came back into work at 7:00 at night after taking her kids to religion class to help bind some packets for a presentation out of town the next day. Guys had to leave at 7:30 am and she got them all ready the night before! She truly was a team player! Ivy went above and beyond to make sure the experience for the presentation was the greatest possible.
A HUGE thank you to the RCC team for helping RPM during this emergency call to The View! True partnership was shown Thursday night when Rick and his team with no questions asked or complaining they stayed and helped and got right into helping extract water and working with the vendors onsite! I can’t thank their team enough for going above and beyond and pitching to help us when “its not their job.”

Stay tuned for next quarter's newsletter!
