With the utmost integrity and professionalism...

We contracted New Leaf Hospitality in the capacity of a 3rd Party Hotel Manager, to open and then operate our two local area ground up North Dakota hotel developments (total $25M), which they have done with the utmost integrity and professionalism over the past 4 Yrs. My experience working with their principals and employees has been excellent and particularly notable given the extreme market conditions the region and team has experienced operating in the ‘oil patch' through its recent down cycle and ongoing gradual recovery. It has been a very challenging time for the two assets, Brett and Trisha stepped up, put our interests at the forefront, buckled down and started grinding to keep the properties on track through the capital calls and tough times to the other side. This takes competence, grit, perseverance and dedication. I'm happy to say that the team pulled through for us, outperformed the local market, competitive set and continues to do so today.

Asset Manager for Investment Group

The high level of dedication and sacrifices for the overall betterment of the team, hotels, and owners that both Brett & Trisha Erdmann resembles in everything they do is far beyond what I've ever seen in my professional career. They both have invested countless hours each and every day to further enhance the value to everybody associated with New Leaf Hospitality. The amount of wisdom and expertise that Brett brings to the table in regard to the hospitality industry is hard to come by, and he is willing to share that knowledge with those around him. It doesn't surprise me in whatever their phase of the business is at, they've strategically overcame some challenges and obstacles with the oil boom slowdown and are always better positioning themselves for a bright future.

It is with much enthusiasm that I am writing to recommend the services of the New Leaf Hospitality.

I have been a partner in a hotel investment with New Leaf Hospitality for the past four years, and have always been completely satisfied with their performance and knowledge of the management business. They do an excellent job, are always transparent in their business dealings.

During these years, I was able not only to gain firsthand knowledge of their companies abilities in management, but also to be exposed to the creative approach to problem solving and their ability to get the job accomplished.

I would recommend New Leaf Hospitality for any hotel management job that requires strong leadership, aggressiveness, analytical skills and the ability to solve problems related to people or finance.

I'm happy to recommend the services of New Leaf Hospitality as an investment partner.

Jesse Bradley - Hotel Investor / Owner

I am an investor in two hotels in the Bakken Oil Formation in Western ND. After the oil price dropped, there was much concern from all involved. I am so grateful the Erdmann's and New Leaf Hospitality were managing our properties. They made the necessary adjustments/changes and have put us in a position for long term success.

Lenae Garcia - Hotel Investor / Owner

New Leaf Hospitality has been under contract to manage the Little Missouri Inn & Suites and Teddy's Residential Suites in New Town, ND since they were opened. Brett, Trish and the entire staff of New Leaf Hospitality have always acted in a professional, hardworking and sincere manor. Our questions, needs and ideas as an ownership group are taken seriously and responded to genuinely. Managing properties in oil country comes with unique challenges and Brett and Trish are the best in the business at keeping things running through the thick and the thin. I would highly recommend them as a management company and as developers of new properties.

The New Leaf team has done an outstanding job managing our two hotel properties in New Town, North Dakota. This location presents work force challenges, yet Brett and Trisha are able to acquire and maintain a quality staff. They create opportunities and build personal relationships with everyone they are in contact with, including their team at New Leaf, property staffing and management, hotel guests, and owners/investors like me and my family. In fact, Brett and Trisha quickly became family friends after meeting them almost five years ago. They are always working in their highest gear, and no one else could do a better job at our properties. Our endeavor would not have been pursued if not for Brett and Trisha.

Luke Lahtinen - Hotel Investor / Owner

My name is Carmen Wold and I have known the Erdmann's for over five years. My experience with them has been very good. They set up two fine hotels in Watford City on land I am invested in. They really know the hotel industry and are very good and trustworthy to deal with. Rarely do you find a couple that work together so good. They really know how to manage and operate hotel properties. Also, they are good citizens and good supporters in communities they are invested in.

Carmen Wold - Hotel Investor / Owner

As the former Director of Operations of New Leaf Hospitality, I have extensive knowledge and experience working with Brett and Trisha. I am proud to have been a part of a wonderful team. Their knowledge and expertise is second to none. Their dedication to Investors, Employees and Guests is truly extraordinary. Their vision is simple: To provide exceptional management services for their investors, employees, and guests while maintaining their core values.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to any potential investor, future staff or guest that is seeking the best in Hospitality services.

Brett and Trisha Erdmann are great people. They have unending energy and vision...a great combination. The attention to detail at their properties is incredible. When their properties opened in the Bakken, the region was in a state of explosive, challenging growth. Yet their hotels were an oasis from the chaos with comforting quiet, impeccable cleanliness, exquisite food and warm hospitality. And today those properties remain my destination on every trip to the Bakken. The Erdmann's and New Leaf Hospitality know how to win the super-competitive business of hospitality

Scott Hennen, Partner of Flag Family Media - Business Client

I would like to provide a testimonial about my experiences with Brett and Trisha Erdmann. I know them personally as a former employee and sub-contractor. I had the opportunity to work with them directly during the entire process of opening many hotels and I am truly impressed with the work ethic they constantly deliver. We all worked very long days, (many 18-hour days, 7 days a week) and they were always motivated and excited around the staff. I personally think that the Erdmann's are very dedicated to New Leaf Hospitality and committed to keep growing and be the best company, every day. I would like to thank them for the opportunity that they gave me to be a part of their great team and help them achieve their dream. I now have the opportunity to be a sub-contractor for them and feel blessed I can also consider them friends. They are really good people.
