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!

*New* 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:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QBDNXKB/

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.

Online event

Pull up a seat and your favorite beverage and join James for real estate investor story time.

"Are You Not Entertained? Are You Not Entertained? Is This Not Why You Are Here?" - Gladiator Be entertained as you hear about real estate investors buying, selling, renting properties in a variety of market conditions. See the impact of prices, rents, interest rates, taxes, insurance, maintenance... on a myriad of different investors utilizing a plethora of different strategies. Live through the triumphant highs when property values, rents and the stock market soar... and commiserate when markets and fortunes fall short. Each week a different story. Some shorter than others. Some longer. All engaging, thought-provoking and entertaining. Hear stories about investors buying single family homes, duplexes, triplexes, four-plexes and commercial apartments (5+ units). Live through tales of traditional financing as well as creative financing like lease-options and lease-purchases, subject to, owner financing and much more. Follow our investor characters as they invest in stocks, bonds, commodities, small businesses, side hustles, house hack with roommates and of course a variety of real estate while the market has its way with them. See the carnage and share in the spoils. Experience the thrill of the race to boost cash flow, pay off houses early, sell off properties to pay off other properties, squeeze every last drop out of return on equity by re-leveraging properties... on the path toward financial independence. Who will be able to live their passion without stress and worry? Who will fail? Who will eat caviar in retirement and who will resort to cat food? Who will travel the world with friends and family? Who will stay at home clipping coupons and mending socks and underwear? Each week a different tale. Some characters return, wiser, dumber, richer, poorer with new strategies and "shots on goal" in their journey toward financial independence. Some will learn the lessons. Many will not. What will you learn? What will you take away? Join us on this entertaining journey together.

Everything You Learned About Deal Analysis is Wrong - ROIQ+R™

Forget everything you ever learned about analyzing real estate investments. It's all been a lie, a sham, a look at the world through rose-colored glasses, overly optimistic and... unfortunately... WRONG! In this ground-breaking, industry-changing class... James will reveal his newest thinking tool, newest visual tool and newest methodology for analyzing properties. This time... for the first time ever... correctly. James will walk you through how we've been taught, what was considered right and why it is so wrong. He'll show you his early attempts to fix this and why it was so popular. Then, he'll share with you why even that was wrong. Then, he will share with you his newest tools including the ROIQ+R™ and how this revolutionizes the real estate investing deal analysis space and finally corrects a long-standing injustice. More classes using James' newest tools will be forthcoming, but this is the unveiling and will give you some background.
