Our U32 apartments were such a hit, the second phase started construction this spring and the progress is really moving along. Set to open fall 2019, the building is currently being constructed on the east side of the current building with 118 new units. The new building will feature all the same amenities as the first building, even offering more fitness area, hot yoga studio, community/game room and much more.
We are confident the units will have a high demand, just like the first units. Visit www.u32apartments.com to check out the floor plans. If you would like to tour the units, please call 701-356-7368.

Roers had its’ 2nd Annual Breakfast with Santa this year. We created this event to try and include our employees and their families. We have the Annual Christmas Party every year, so we decided to hold this event the day after so our out of town staff and guests are able to attend!
It’s called Breakfast with Santa… so what would the event be without Santa?? The kids absolutely loved him.
Along with getting to chat with Santa, we also had some games, activities, treats, and more! Guests were able to go through the office and play Christmas BINGO, create an ornament craft, decorate cookies, and write letters to Santa.
We had some amazing volunteers help us out with this event! We reached out to the Sheyenne High School’s National Honor Society for some volunteers and they were great! We want to thank them for being so helpful & polite.
Overall, the event was a success! It’s so nice getting to not only connect and catch up with all of our employees, but their families & loved ones as well.
Tis the season! Roers had its 42nd Annual Christmas Party and it was a night filled with good company, good conversation, music, and jerseys!
Our past parties have been rather formal themed as far as a dress code. Last year we decided to do an ugly sweater theme and it was a big hit! A lot of people liked the casual dress code with less pressure to dress up. So we stuck with that for 2018. We still wanted to make it fun, so we chose the theme of jerseys/team spirit! We even had a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner for Most Team Spirit.
The party began with a social hour. This was a great time for everyone to catch up with employees they might not get to see or work with every day.
Dinner began and shortly after we started the employee recognition & awards. We recognized our employees who have been here for 5, 10, 15, 35, and 40 years! We also presented the Rookie of the Year Award, Building Success in the Office Award, Building Success in the Field Award, and the Community Service Award. It’s awesome to get to highlight our amazing employees and the hard work they do for Roers.
Jerseys vs. Trophies
This game is also something we’ve done in the past. To say it’s a hit is an understatement! Everyone loves it. Each guest gets a paddle. Jim flips a coin, everyone guesses what they think it’s going to land on. If you’re wrong you sit down. And we keep going until there’s one person standing! We did three games of it this year with prizes of a Great Wolf Lodge gift certificate, a Roomba, and an Apple Watch for the winners! Such a fun game.
Pie in the Face
Something else we did during the party was a little fundraiser for the United Way of Cass Clay. Our United Way committee collected money for a chance to pie Danielle or Scott, two of our leaders, in the face. Things got really messy really fast. But it was for a good cause, so it was worth it… right Danielle?
This year’s entertainment was Dueling Pianos who put on a great show! A lot of us got up to dance… not something we get to do with our coworkers every day!
Most Team Spirit
Last but not least… we awarded our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the Most Team Spirit with Scheels gift cards!
1st place was Lisa S. on the Dickinson Team! She was head to toe in Eagles gear.
2nd place was Matt N. on the Development Team and his wife Christine! They dressed up as “jersey cows”.
3rd place was Tyrone K. on the Construction Team. He was a referee!
Overall, the night was a success. We’re already planning for next year! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from everyone at Roers!
The Roers team was feeling grateful, thankful, and blessed this Holiday season! And we wanted to spread it around our community. We delivered over 500 pies total between Fargo, Dickinson, and Bismarck during the week of Thanksgiving. That’s a lot of pies!
Give a Pie, Get a Pie
For the past few years, Roers Property Management has been partnering with Starion Bank and Village Inn to do “Give a Pie, Get a Pie” at our Metropolitan Apartments in Fargo. This year, we decided to do it at our SGC Apartments as well! Residents are able to fill out a form and choose what flavor of pie they would like to have for themselves and they are also able to choose a flavor of pie they would like to give to someone else for the Holidays. Once we get the forms in, we deliver the pies! The best part is, Dale from Starion helped us deliver!
Pies for our clients, partners, & vendors
Roers has always done a Christmas gift to the people we work close with throughout the year. However, we had the idea to switch things up this year and do a Thanksgiving gift instead. And what’s a better gift during Thanksgiving than a pie?! So we put in a very large order of pies at Costco, order some Roers cutting boards, and wrapped them together to make a cute little Thanksgiving gift of pie!
The Roers leadership team all came together and delivered pies all around our community. We even had deliveries in Dickinson and Bismarck! To say we love pie is an understatement….
Employee Pie Party
Not only did we want to express how thankful we were for our clients, vendors, & partners… we also wanted to show our employees how thankful we are for them and all the hard work they do for Roers!
We invited all of our employees to the Fargo Office to enjoy some apple cider, some fresh pumpkin pie, and to take a pie home to enjoy with their friends and family over Thanksgiving! It was an afternoon filled with great people, great conversation, and really great pie.
Thanks to everyone who helped with these fun events and thanks to everyone who works with Roers and made this event possible! We are so thankful, so grateful, and so blessed. We are wishing you all a very Happy Holidays!
One of the best parts of the Fall is Halloween! Getting dressed up in costumes, eating a little too much candy, the spooky decorations, and more. For the first time ever, Roers decided to throw a Halloween Party for our employees & their families.
We had an afternoon of Halloween games & crafts, cookie decorating, a photo booth, trick-or-treating through the Fargo Roers Office, and everyone was dressed up, of course! It was so great to get to see everyone’s families there and dressed up in their costumes.
Thanks to everyone who helped out with this event and everyone who came! We can’t wait for next year!
This Fall Roers launched something pretty exciting! We partnered up with NDSU and created the Roers VIP Fan of the Game.
Each home Bison football game, anyone in the community has the opportunity to be the Roers VIP Fan of the Game. This means they win 2 home game tickets, 2 pregame sideline passes, and their photo taken by the big football helmet and posted on NDSU’s social media!
It has been such a fun season getting to connect with so many people throughout the community as we choose a different winner every home game. It has also been a blast getting to work with NDSU Athletics. They have been awesome.
Here are the winners we’ve had so far:
If YOU want to be the Roers VIP Fan of the Game, you still have two more chances this football season!
It’s back to school time! Which probably means moving into your apartment. If you’re moving out of your dorm and into your very first college apartment – that can be a pretty big transition! No more walking down the hall to get your meal served to you. No more climbing up to the top bunk every night. No more sharing a bathroom with 50 other people!
Your first apartment will more than likely be a breath of fresh air compared to life in the dorms. And we are here to help you with your move! We have compiled a list of everything you will need to make your new place feel like home.
For the Bedroom:
Your bedroom is going to be your… escape. This will be the one place you can shut the door from your roommates and be by yourself. It’s where you will spend a lot of time and it’s the only place that’s only yours.. so make it special! Here’s what you’ll need:
Bed Frame + Mattress
Desk + Chair
Power Strips & Extension Cords
Fan – just in case there’s not central air and you like to sleep in the cold
3M Wall Hooks & Hangers – a lot of apartments charge you per nail hole so adhesive hooks are always a good idea
For the Kitchen:
Depending on how many roommates you will be living with, it’s a good idea to decide who is going to get what items for the kitchen. Here is a list to start with:
Table + Chairs
Plates, Cups, Mugs, Bowls, etc.
Silverware & Utensils
Pots & Pans
Coffee Machine – duh
Microwave – some apartments come with them, so make sure yours doesn’t before someone buys one!
Dish Soap & Scrubber – the dishwasher isn’t superman… clean the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, guys!
Hand Towels & Wash Cloths
Groceries! – that’s a given
For the Bathroom:
You might have one bathroom that you split between all of your roommates.. or you might get your own! Make sure to plan accordingly. But either way, here’s how to stock it up:
Bath Towels – we recommend getting around 4-6 for yourself so you can rotate while you’re washing the others
Hand Towels & Wash Cloths
Shower Curtain & Liner – don’t forget the liner!! You don’t want to ruin the curtain.
Plunger & Toilet Brush
Mini Trash Can
Shampoo & Conditioner
Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Soap (both body & hand)
For the Living Room:
This is where you’re going to live! (In the living room… get it?) Make sure this space is accommodating to not only you and your roommates… but your guests! This is where you’ll have your movie nights, watch the big game, catch up, and just hang out! Here’s what you’ll need:
Sofa & Additional Seating
Coffee & End Tables
Blankets & Pillows
Decor – make it feel homey!
Whether you like it or not… your place is going to get dirty. And you’re going to need to clean it. Here’s a list of everything you will need at some point:
Broom & Dustpan
Mop or Swiffer
Disinfectant Wipes – a true lifesaver
If you are living with roommates, make sure to talk it over with them before buying anything. You want to make sure you have everything, but you also want to make sure you don’t all buy the same things! Hopefully this list helped you in your big move to your college apartment! Good luck and have fun in your new space!
The step program (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) award we received from ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors) is based on our safety programs and record. We received the Silver award this year with a goal of reaching gold within 3 years. The level received is based on the company’s prior 3 years of incident rate, days away from work, restricted or transfer rate and your experience modification rate.
The photo above shows our awesome Safety Manager, Andrew, holding the award!
Hey, y’all, I’m Christen Anderson of Christen Joy Homes!
I’m thrilled to have the pleasure to be a part of multiple Roers’ projects and to be featured as a guest blogger for them.
Before we jump into my work with Roers, let me tell you a bit about me!
I’m a Minnesota native that has always had an eye for décor and design.
After returning to the Midwest and deciding to build my home in Moorhead, I was able to put my knack for decorating into practice. While going through the home building process, I realized that I had a deep passion for all things décor and design.
After constantly being asked by friends to help with their home decorating projects, I finally decided to give it a go, and Christen Joy Homes was born.
It’s my unwavering passion for travel, art, and design — combined with my extensive marketing and project management background — that have created the foundation I’ve built my business on.
As an avid traveler who has been to 23 countries (and counting!), I have a broad approach to decorating. I love to bring what I’ve seen in my travels into the spaces I’m working on.
My personal style is what I like to call “beach chic.” I love pops of color, neutral “classic pieces” that include heirlooms, investment pieces, along with art or mementos from my travels. I see my home as an extension of me – full of personality.
I understand that not everyone has a giant budget to work with, but with a fresh coat of paint, new pillows, a throw, and flowers or a pop of greenery, a room can be transformed.
I approach design for my clients with one key thing in mind: it should reflect the client, not me. It’s not my space, and I want the work I do to showcase the tastes of the people who hire me.
I’m passionate about helping my clients and ensuring each project is aligned with their unique vision. I love the opportunities each client brings to me, whether that’s a limited budget, asking for ideas that haven’t been seen in the Fargo-Moorhead area, or whipping something up on a short deadline.
Creativity is at the heart of what I do, and when I can start with a blank slate, it really allows me to shine and figure out new ways to make the most of the potential of the space.
My projects span everything from home staging, accessorizing living room spaces, working on full remodels, and new construction, for both commercial and residential spaces.
Creating the perfect-for-you space is all about using my keen eye for decor and your aesthetic to create that inviting space you’ve been dreaming about.
When I’m not busy working on design projects, I’m a passionate art collector, a keen traveler and love to host dinner parties at my home complete with floral arrangements, place settings, and delicious home-cooked meals.
Stay tuned for more guest blogs around my work with Roers. You can follow me on Instagram or Facebook, or contact me for more information for your own projects.
