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.

Membership Bonus

In addition to the amazing classes, we have a number of valuable resources which are also available to our members. Gaining access is free and easy! Contact us through the Contact the Organizer button on the member page or send an email to holly@JamesOrrRealEstate.com (holly@Jamesorrrealestate.com)!

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. Starting in 2018 we are making most of these videos accessible to our members.

Plus, our amazingly comprehensive yet easy-to-use deal analysis spreadsheets are available to download. This makes it easy to customize the inputs to reflect your exact scenario.

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.

*NEW* Nomad Podcast

In addition, we have launched the Nomad Real Estate Investing Podcast with over 200 hours of the best real estate investing training available anywhere. It's just one more way you can consume our amazing content!
