About Us

Northwestern Engineering Company (“NWE”) incorporated in South Dakota in 1927 as an engineering and contracting company. Our early history as contractors evolved into real estate ownership and then property management. The company now consists of four principal components: 1) real estate acquisition and development; 2) real estate management under NWE Management Company; 3) hospitality (ownership in nine properties); 4) Wood Products, under Hills Products Group, encompassing milling, bagging, and value-added chemical applications.

NWE maintains a presence, directly and via partnerships in South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, and California. We manage over 1,200 residential units,  435,000 square feet of commercial space, and own and operate the largest and highest rated mobile home park in Rapid City. NWE Management Company is Rapid City’s largest independent real estate management company with more than a 30 years history in western South Dakota.

We offer top to bottom real estate services: property management, maintenance, leasing, bookkeeping, accounting and financial compliance assistance. Our seven licensed real estate professionals, our in-house maintenance division, and our two certified public accountants supported by a team of four experienced administrators serve our diverse range of clients based on their unique needs.

As owners ourselves, we know how to treat clients’ properties–exactly as we treat our own. Our platform for ownership client service beings with the end in mind: what is your ideal outcome? We then articulate the best strategy to get there, and execute in concert with ownership through direct and web based interaction.

For tenants, we strive to locate you in the right place, literally and figuratively, the first time.  We engage as advisor between landlords and tenants, thereby preventing the conflicts typical in two-sided representation that can often end up breaking instead of making deals.

Our menu of services can meet almost every circumstance faced by either owner or tenant. Our broad expertise–from national credit tenants to regional and local small businesses and our depth of resources in every aspect of service and support—truly make us best in breed in the greater Black Hills area.
