Our Team

Dan Rivers

Founder/CEO

Dan Rivers, husband and dad first and foremost, has been working in the real estate industry for nearly two decades. While his career began in large scale property management in the greater Boston area, overseeing more than 5,000 residential units as well as $15 million+ in projects, his passion for the industry quickly grew to span sales, investing and more. 

In 2020 he founded Rivers Capital Group, a comprehensive real estate service company that specializes in private money lending and joint venture partnering, off-market deals, real estate sales, rentals and flipping. There are five unique businesses under the RCG umbrella. 

Dan’s knowledge, passion and hard work has resulted in more than $50 million worth of real estate transactions in just 3 years and recognition in the top 1% of realtors in the tri-county area. What he prides himself most in, though, are the strong relationships he’s built with clients and partners. 

An investor himself, Dan owns over $2.5 million in real estate assets and is also a participant in various syndications, both active and passively. His values are hard work, integrity and outstanding client service into everything he does.  

When Dan isn’t making homeownership dreams come true for his clients, he enjoys traveling, spending time with his family and exploring nature. Supporting local and national causes is also very important to him. He serves on the board of IMPACT, a Charleston-based nonprofit that helps develop youth through education and exposure, and frequently volunteers and donates to organizations like St. Judes and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
