MidAmerican Energy Company

As a tenant of R&R, we’ve been very happy with the building management services. The team makes a special point to give us notice of any work being done that may affect our daily business. Tom makes an effort to walk through, checking for light issues, plumbing issues, or just to ask if we have any problems. Anytime we’ve contacted building management, the response was prompt and work completed efficiently.


We have been very pleased with the level of service and quality of the R&R facility that we lease.   The building has always been kept very clean and the parking lot and sidewalks in the winter are cleared quickly.   Everyone on staff has been excellent to work with and any issue that we have had over the past six years has been addressed and handled very quickly and efficiently.   Bottom line, you have a very satisfied tenant and we appreciate your attention to detail regarding the building, the staff, and the service provided.

Wixted & Co.

As a long-term tenant of R&R, I am consistently impressed with the service, professionalism, and care the R&R team provides to our organization. The team of professionals that manage this building are second to none–friendly, eager to assist and provide an attention to detail that makes all of the difference.  As our company grows and our space needs change, R&R has made every accommodation to meet and exceed our square footage and finish needs.
