The Ottawa Real Estate Investors Organization will hold its first meeting after the 2012 summer break with another high quality expert delivering a special presentation on investing in real estate and buying property as a safe investment. This is an excellent opportunity for both new and experienced investors to obtain information on the process for creating or expanding an investment portfolio through the purchase of commercial real estate, as well as through ownership of rental property for residential use.

Sean Mathew Frederick is known as an author, television personality, and successful businessman, and will be presenting at the September 10, 2012 meeting of the Ottawa Real Estate Investors Organization. Mr. Frederick is a much sought-after speaker in the area of residential and commercial real estate investing. Over the past 17 years, he has taken the lead in renovated over 50 properties and managed a multimillion dollar real estate portfolio.

With continued uncertainty in the stock market, and with record low interest rates limiting the investment returns for bonds, many people are looking to real estate investing as a way to secure future income and establish a comfortable retirement income. Less than optimal returns in financial markets for average investors have created concerns among many Baby Boomers and Generation X’ers over where to make investments that can provide a safe, yet solid foundation for financial security. Ensuring that investment decisions are made from a base of knowledge, rather than by speculation, is critical to success.

The Ottawa Real Estate Investors Organization, known as OREIO, is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education, networking and support to new and experienced Canadian real estate investors in the Ottawa and surrounding areas. It holds monthly meetings where guest speakers will provide quality information on how to invest in real estate, how to manage properties, how to attract joint venture partners and much more.

In the past, OREIO has arranged for top speakers to address the regular monthly meetings. In April 2012, OREIO welcomed Don R. Campbell, Founding Partner of the Real Estate Investment Network™, and Cutting Edge Research Inc., and the author of the best-selling Canadian real estate book Real Estate Investing in Canada. Mr. Campbell is regularly called upon by national and local TV, magazines, newspapers and radio whenever the discussion of real estate arises as a result of his direct focus on the economics and fundamentals of real estate.

OREIO also attracts other top rated speakers, such as Mayor Jim Watson, who spoke at the OREIO Annual Barbeque in July 2012 on why Ottawa is an attractive city for real estate investment and on the major projects that will further contribute to keeping Ottawa as ranked among the world’s most desirable cities to call home.

“We are proud of the role that OREIO has played in providing quality information to investors who wish to use real estate as a way of securing their financial future,” said Rich Danby, President of OREIO. “We are also pleased with our ability to help landlords understand and deliver the promise of quality, affordable housing for renters in Ottawa and the surrounding area.”

In addition to education, each month attendees have the opportunity to network with other local real estate investors to hear their success stories, tips, and perhaps even find a joint venture partner to work with on their next deal.

The OREIO meetings take place the second Monday of the month at the in the Centennial Ballroom at the Travelodge Hotel, 1376 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario. Admission is free for members of OREIO, and $20.00 for guests and non-members.
