Rick Hoogendoorn is commonly referred to as "Rictoria" at Ozzie's Real Estate Action Group (REAG) meetings. Rick and his spouse Cheri began investing in real estate in 1997 and built up a substantial portfolio of properties in Western Canada, primarily through joint venture partnerships with family and friends. Rick and Cheri are four-time Deal of the Year award winners with Ozzie's REAG group, three times for Best Joint Venture Partnership and once for Best Land Deal.
In November 2014 they completed construction on their first 20-unit, purpose-built rental apartment building: Roberts Landing. Their second building, the 30-unit Roberts Place, followed. In 2019, they completed their 63-unit purpose-built rental development, Hockley Corners, and then sold their three buildings to a REIT. In all cases, Rick and Cheri set up limited partnerships to make the projects happen. They now have additional developments underway in both Langford and Esquimalt.
Rick is the author of two books, What Is Stopping You? and 18 Holes to Your Goals. He also contributed to Ozzie's book Real Estate Action 2.0. Rick is an entertaining speaker, and he has a knack for doing impersonations. Rick is now retired as a REALTOR®, but still works as the marketing manager for the Greater Victoria Property Group, and their three REALTOR® team.
