Create experiences and results that are different and better. Using this motto, Barry Raber has created a successful real estate investment company, pivoting at critical moments to take advantage of market trends. No matter the type of real estate investment, Barry and his team look for undervalued mismanaged properties and turn them around with capital improvements and results-driven hands-on property management.
Barry grew up in an entrepreneurial family in Pendleton, Oregon. His first investment in real estate was a duplex in southwest Portland. Working during the week at a leading real estate investment company and spending the weekends mowing the grass and fixing appliances laid the groundwork for his current success. With over 75 acquisitions, Barry and his team have expanded into small business industrial parks (Business Property Trust), self-storage properties (Bargain Storage), and most recently, properties specializing in covered RV parking (Carefree Covered RV Storage). Barry and his team focus on smart investments, defining a strong brand and maintaining a great company culture.
Barry lives in Portland with his wife, Jennifer, and their three children. He has been a member of the EO for almost twenty years and has served as Learning Chair and Moderator for the Portland chapter multiple times. Barry won EO Portland Entrepreneur of the Year in 2017.
