About the Organizer


Jay Shaw is the founder of the Niagara REI and an active real estate investor in the region.

He has been investing in the Niagara Region since 2014 and created this REI as a way to give back. The Niagara REI is for like minded investors and and those who are new to real estate investing to network with one another as well as a forum to learn more from industry experts.

In 2016 after one of those experiences with a property management company, he decided to create his own company and two weeks later he founded Welcome Home Management and hasn't looked back since.

Jay wanted to do things differently. Much differently. He chose to focus on the investor and not himself. While building Welcome Home Management, Jay recalled this encounter with the property manager and all the other pain points that he’d had as an investor, and focused on correcting those for his clients.

In 2017, Jay became a licensed realtor with Rockstar Real Estate working solely with investors looking to build wealth through real estate. Jay views himself not as a realtor, but as an investor with a real estate license. Jay coaches investors on the fundamentals to look for when acquiring rental properties and works with investors every step of the way, not just when the deal closes. He further assists investors by working with them through the marketing, showing, and placement of qualified tenants in the property.

Whether you are interested in buy & hold rental properties, Rehabbing and Flipping Properties, Rent-to Own properties, Joint Ventures, or just learning more, we hope that the Niagara REI be the place to help you achieve that and learn more.
