Brian is a co-founder and owner of Roers Companies. He started his career in real estate more than 15 years ago, purchasing single-family homes, duplexes, and student housing around the University of Minnesota. After gaining his CPA license in 2002, Brian co-founded Anderson & Roers CPAs, in which he held 50% partnership until launching Roers Companies with brother Kent Roers in 2012.
Today, Brian oversees operations for Roers Cos., working closely with the firm’s finance, marketing, and property management leaders to drive revenue growth. He works alongside the executive leadership team to set the vision and strategy for the company, which is aiming to reach a total of $5 billion in real estate and 20,000 units developed by 2025. The firm was named to the NMHC Top 25 developers list in 2023 and earned a Minnesota Real Estate Award for Developer of the Year in 2023. The sustained combined growth of Roers Cos. and its property management business (previously branded as Core Living) earned the company a position on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s most successful private companies for three consecutive years.
Brian has also earned individual honors in recent years. In 2018, Brian was named a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal “40 Under 40” honoree. In 2021, he and Kent Roers were named as finalists in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards for the Heartland region.
