Current OREIO Executives


Rich Danby

Rich Danby

For many years, Rich Danby enjoyed a successful career as a TV Producer and Director before finally making the decision to pursue real estate full-time.  Rich Danby is a Professional Speaker and Real Estate Investment Coach.  He is also the Owner of Rich Ottawa Investments, President of the Ottawa Real Estate Investors Organization (OREIO), and Co-founder of REIN Ottawa.

With no previous experience in real estate, Rich profited over $65,000 on his first property, after renovating and selling it a year later.  He’s been investing in Ontario for over 15 years. Rich is an expert at finding and negotiating private deals and raising the capital required to renovate them. His preferred investment strategy is to “reno and refinance” into a long-term hold, working with many joint venture partners and private lenders. His portfolio is a mix of single-family and multi-family units. He has also invested in land development, rent-to-own, and flips for quick profit.

Rich is a father of 4 children and credits his wife for encouraging him to pursue his dreams and help others to achieve theirs.
