How would you describe your experience as a WKM tenant?
"Northwestern Mutual has been in the WKM Professional Building for the past ten years. I would describe our experience as WKM tenants as very welcoming and accommodating. To find such a welcoming place to stay is rare. Not every landlord is as welcoming as WKM Properties. It’s like, WKM is not happy unless we’re happy. Over the years, this has been shown by WKM in their efforts to accommodate our every need and request. From build out, to move out (not that we’re moving out, I can envision ending my career here) WKM has gone above and beyond in accommodating us. In the beginning, they invited us to conceptualize an office space that went beyond efficiency, an office that had all the things we’ve wanted before, but couldn’t have. So we did and WKM delivered.
A few examples - I absolutely love natural light. WKM came in and installed two huge windows in my inner office which improved the natural lighting significantly. Another example, the wiring in the office is set up to our exact specifications. Every outlet is where we requested it to be. WKM also offered to install a drop ceiling to cover the old ventilation system and pipes of the knitting mill. We told them, no way! It’s one of the things we love most about our office, that the space’s great history is preserved intact. Same goes for the brick walls. They offered to cover them with sheet rock, but we refused. You can’t find that anywhere these days.
All these small accommodations resulted in an office today that we love. It’s my home away from home. We also have a very close relationship with WKM. The Woodworths have treated us like family since the first day we arrived. This relationship has made being in the building a comfortable and enjoyable experience. We’re very happy here. The parking here is another major plus. We've never had a parking problem, for us or for any of our clients. If we were located downtown, I’m positive we wouldn't be able to say the same. Overall, being in the WKM Professional Building has been very beneficial to me and my business. I’d highly recommend it to anyone considering moving here."

"I have been a tenant for about 14 years. My business has grown substantially during that time. WKM has always been accommodating to my needs, has always been supportive and helpful when needed and made me feel like this is my place."
Dan Amundson - CEO
"I’ve been at WKM Properties since 2005...Pete, Nathan, Jo, and Mike – each in their own way has gone above and beyond to provide a great place for my business office. As my business changed, they worked with me to find just the right space and did a terrific job at renovating it to meet my needs. The maintenance crew is awesome – the building always looks great inside and out and as problems arise, they are always prompt to address them. My customers always comment on how nice the building is!"
