Marja Nelson – Regional Property Manager

Employees February 18, 2020
We believe in promoting from within at Thies & Talle Management.  Many of our team members have worked with us for years.  Our Regional Manager, Marja Nelson, is a great example of a long-term team member that has worked her way up in this industry.  Marja has worked for Thies & Talle for 11 years.  She started as a Leasing Specialist and was eventually promoted to Property Manager at our Fargo, ND properties, Prairiewood Estates & South Meadows.  During her Property Manager role, Marja began helping at other properties within her Regional Manager’s portfolio.  This gave her additional experience working with Rural Development and Section 8 programs. When a Regional Manager position became available, there was no question that Marja would be a great fit.  She now oversees 21 total properties with 580 total units.  Her portfolio is a mix of Market-Rate, Rural Development and Section 8 properties.  Her home office is now based out of Prairiewood Estates in Fargo, ND. When asked what a typical work week looks like for Marja, she says there is never a typical week.  With as many properties as she oversees, things come up and plans change.  There is never a dull moment.  That being said, Marja says that organization and prioritization are the keys to success. When asked what Marja loves the most about working at Thies & Talle, she says “I think what I appreciate most is how Thies & Talle does a great job of training and providing for their employees.  I also love all the people I work with!” We are very lucky to have such a dedicated individual on our team.  Thanks for all you do, Marja!
