What we're about

Learn about real estate in Northern Colorado with an emphasis on real estate investing in Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Wellington, Greeley, and surrounding areas.

Join us for a variety of classes on real estate and real estate investing as well as some networking and social events. Less in-person events since COVID, but we will resume when James feels comfortable.

Beginner through super advanced real estate investors welcome.
Classes are usually free (with a very rare exception here and there where we charge for a class) and open to the public. However, RSVP is required as space is limited and we do often reach capacity.

Very Brief History and Philosophy

The Northern Colorado Real Estate Investor Group was originally co-founded by James in 2003. We believe that learning about investing should be an on-going, fun, social experience. Many people attend classes as much for the amazing information as for James' goofiness and to socialize with other members who have become true friends.

Past Presentations and Tools

We have been teaching classes for over a decade and in early 2016 we started to record some of the PowerPoint presentations after the fact (not live). Toward the end of 2016 we began to record most of the presentations live in the classroom. After COVID, we switched primarily to webinars and record those (technology willing).

Some recordings are posted for free to the website or as podcast episodes for Meetup members. Some recordings are only available to Plus or Premium members.

Optionally, consider upgrading to Plus to get access to more:

Download the new and amazingly comprehensive yet easy-to-use deal analysis spreadsheet. This makes it easy to customize the inputs to reflect your exact scenario and identify which properties will make for the best investments.

The Original Source of the Nomad™ Real Estate Investing Model

Having named it, James owns the trademark for the Nomad™ real estate investing strategy.

Some of the most popular classes we teach deal with the Nomad™ investing model which is one of the best investing models we have in Northern Colorado. It allows you to build a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio generating passive income with as little as $3,000 total invested.

Real Estate Investing Podcast

In addition, we have a Real Estate Investing Podcast where you can listen to some our recorded classes and stay current with some of the best information about real estate investing anywhere. It's just one more way you can benefit from our amazing content!

Real Estate Financial Planner™

Over the past several years James has been working on the most powerful real estate analysis software ever created: the Real Estate Financial Planner™ and wrote a book titled "How to Achieve Financial Independence and Live Your Passion Regardless of Age or Income" which you can find here:


It analyzes 10 different investing strategies aimed at achieving Financial Independence to Retire Early (FIRE). You can copy one of the 50+ investing scenarios covered in this book into a free account at RealEstateFinancialPlanner.com and modify it to see how soon you might be able to retire following one strategy or another.


We often take photos, record audio and possibly video of NCREIG events (both in-person and online). By joining NCREIG here on Meetup or attending the events you acknowledge and agree that these photos, videos and audio recordings (which include you) may be used on the Meetup site, on social media websites like Facebook, on other websites, in our newsletter, in courses we give away and/or sell and on other promotional materials WITHOUT COMPENSATION TO YOU. If you do not agree to this, please remove yourself from the group and do not attend meetings. Thank you.

Material taught at our classes is copyrighted by James Orr and/or his associated companies. Recordings, photos or video of any type by anyone other than James Orr is strictly prohibited.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To maintain the integrity of the group and authenticity of member interactions we do not allow anyone to post advertisements of any sort or solicit business on our message boards or during the presentations. Please do not spam the message boards or chat window with posts like this or you may be subject to removal from the group. The appropriate time to market your business/services is one-on-one via networking AFTER the presentation.
