Building Success with Fast, Reliable Connectivity
When Lisa Roers and her husband moved from Fargo, ND, to Dickinson, they saw a real opportunity with their family and their family business.
“It was just crazy with the oil boom,” says Roers of the real estate market in western North Dakota. She manages Roers and Roers West, LLC – a commercial and residential development, construction, property management and real estate company.
When the Roers family moved and the company expanded west in 2010, Roers felt it was important to put down roots in the community.
“When you’re an out-of-town company, the community gets skeptical that you’re going to just come in, make your money and leave,” explains Roers.
She also witnessed some of that skepticism when Midco® announced plans to invest $14 million over three years to build out a fiber and cable network supporting business and residential services in Dickinson. But Roers says she’s seen Midco and its staff prove that they’re committed to Dickinson.
“I like how community-focused Midco is,” adds Roers. “They immediately got involved in our community and demonstrated they are dedicated to this town.”
A Strong Reputation
When Midco arrived in Dickinson, it set up its technical operations office in one of Roers West’s buildings. Having the company as a tenant is just one of the reasons Roers decided to use Midco Business for internet and phone services at her offices.
“We used Midco’s services at our business and home in Fargo before we expanded to Dickinson. We waited for Midco to come to Dickinson,” she recalls.
Midco’s investment in Dickinson meant faster internet, better local sports coverage on Midco Sports Network® and – more importantly to Roers – a choice of service options for residents and businesses.
“We were having some issues. We needed faster speeds to be successful doing business with others. Midco stepped that up a notch for us,” says Roers.
And when she has to contact Midco for help, Roers says she’s confident everything will get worked out.
“We’re so spoiled. I have a personal contact at Midco. I know if I have a problem, they’ll respond. Midco is very customer-oriented and offers reliable business services,” says Roers.
