Why OREIA Exists

  OREIA is a non-profit business league dedicated to uniting and supporting real estate investors, landlords, and entrepreneurs. Since 1989, we’ve strengthened the businesses of Ohio housing providers through our local associations, annual conferences, and legislative activities, vendor resources, and trainings.

      We believe that a vibrant housing market is key to the economic and cultural strength of our neighborhoods, our cities, our state, and our region.

     We have seen that educated, ethical real estate entrepreneurs have proven to be a crucial component of the health that housing market, whether they provide affordable rentals, renovate housing for resale, assist buyers in achieving the American dream through lease/purchase arrangements and owner financing, or invest more passively in real estate-secured financing.

     We believe that real estate investment and entrepreneurship is a time-tested, honorable, commendable, and realistic way for American to achieve personal wealth and financial freedom.

     We believe that the biggest threat to housing and real estate entrepreneurship in our country today is over-regulation in the form of increasing taxes, fees, and licensing costs, and in the form of burdensome laws and ordinances that make private investment in the ownership and renovation of housing less attractive to the average person.

     We believe that people who provide housing in any form must be active, educated, and united in their desire to forward the reputation, professionalism, and political voice of the entire industry.

Our Vision Leads to Our Mission

     OREIA's mission is to:

  • Provide education and training to new and active real estate entrepreneurs, through strengthening local associations, offering online educational opportunities, and, of course, OREIA's own annual conference.
  • Promote professionalism within the real estate investing community by promulgating ethical standards and by providing members with the opportunity to achieve the Ohio Professional Housing Provider (OPHP) educational designation
  • Contribute to the positive image of the individual real estate entrepreneur by communicating the crucial economic and civic importance of the activities of our members in investing in, rehabilitating, and managing housing in Ohio
  • Build a more positive legislative and regulatory environment for real estate entrepreneurs by lobbying for the interests of Ohio housing, training our members to be good grass-roots advocates for their business, and creating and maintaining strategic relationships with organizations that share our goals and values.
