Jim Beachum and Dick Roeser, childhood friends, founded Beachum and Roeser over forty years ago in 1976. Initially the company built high quality single family homes and condominium properties. In 1979, the company’s focus shifted exclusively to the development and management of high quality, upscale commercial office properties which serve the medical, therapy, legal, financial and business services market in southeastern Michigan.

Many of the properties have won awards for beautification and landscaping excellence. To date, Beachum and Roeser have developed nearly one million square feet of premiere commercial office space in southeastern Michigan.
