A former Minot man has started a company in Arizona geared toward helping the man North Dakotans who have purchased property in the Grand Canyon State.  Eric Boschee VHM Property Management and Realty is based in Mesa with the goal of watching over properties that have been purchased but are not lived-in full time.  VHM can work to rent them out -- on a short term or long term basis.  They do more than manage however.  Boschee along with his sister and mother are licensed realtors in the state and they can help you find a vacation home in the area as well...  Check them out at VHManagement.com.

In Minot, another hotel that has been open for a little more than half a year is getting closer to being finished with a major addition.  Souris Valley Suites in south Minot opened in July with 89 suite style rooms...but with the hotel being filled to near capacity each and every night, it soon became apparent that more rooms were needed.  General Manager Terry Alexander says when complete, another 46 rooms will be available on the east side of the facility.  Alexander says plans for adding on were started before the hotel even opened...and they are ahead of schedule.

(Terry Alexander - Souris Valley Suites) "Our construction schedule, we are on target and actually a week or so ahead of schedule thanks to mother nature this winter that has helped things out.  We are looking at an end of May, first of June opening date."

Souris Valley Suites is owned by Bakken Hospitality, LLP and managed my Dora Hospitality -- the largest operator of extended stay rooms in North Dakota.  With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
