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. and provides executive leadership to Core Living, working closely with the firms’ finance, marketing, and property management leaders to drive revenue growth. He works alongside the executive leadership team to set the vision and strategy, which is poised to reach a total of $2 billion in real estate and 10,000 units developed by 2023. The sustained combined growth of Roers Cos. and the Core Living property management division has earned the companies 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.
