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.
Beginner through super advanced real estate investors welcome.
Classes are 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 the fun banter between James and Brian 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. Several of these recorded classes are available to our Meetup members for free. 

Plus, our amazingly comprehensive yet easy-to-use deal analysis spreadsheet is available to download. This makes it easy to customize the inputs to reflect your exact scenario and identify which properties will make for the best investments. 
Just send an email to jores@jamesorr.com to request access to our bonus materials for members.

The Original Cave For the Nomad Investing Model

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.

Nomad Real Estate Investing Podcast

In addition, we have launched the Nomad Real Estate Investing Podcast where you can listen to 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. We recently unveiled 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.
