Interested in commercial real estate investing, but don't really know where to start? Built by an instructor with over $1.5 billion of commercial real estate transaction experience, this course was designed to take you from complete beginner with no knowledge of the business to a comprehensive understanding of the many components of commercial real estate investing so you can do your first deal, land a lucrative new career opportunity, or both.
This course was created to help our students:
Land a high-paying job in commercial real estate investing - Commercial real estate investing can be an incredibly lucrative business, on a much larger scale than flipping houses or buying single family residences to rent. This course will provide you with the building blocks of understanding how to analyze, purchase, and manage commercial real estate properties using the knowledge and techniques of some of the strongest institutional investors in the industry.
Invest as a passive Limited Partner in large, high profit-potential deals - Commercial real estate investments are generally complex and difficult to understand for those without a strong background in institutional investing. This course will give you a leg up on the competition so when a friend, family member, or colleague comes to you with a real estate investment opportunity, you can evaluate the deal and either decline or invest with confidence.
Raise money from investors to buy a commercial real estate property - Entering into 2020, we are seeing the hottest US housing market in over a decade, which has resulted in single family house flippers flooding the market and bidding up prices. Small, private commercial real estate investors targeting apartment buildings, retail shopping centers, office buildings and industrial properties are able to fly under the radar, drastically reducing competition for great deals.
This course includes graduate-level content which is taught every year in the top MBA and Master's in Real Estate programs across the globe, practically applied to real life scenarios and case studies in the commercial real estate investing industry.
Here's what some of our students have had to say:
★★★★★ "Awesome class. Engaging & real life application. Examples are well thought out and leave you wanting to learn more. On to the next 2 classes by Justin! Great teacher."
★★★★★ "This course is PERFECT. It covers everything you need to know about CRE and it is organized in a very clean and logic way. Mr Kivel makes you understand the subject of the course easily, it is almost magic! Thank you, this is the most useful course I've done so far."
★★★★★ "This course is spot on! With almost no commercial real estate background, I really needed a deep dive into this topic that was easy to understand and absorb and this course delivered. I'm really impressed by the models and the instructor's depth of knowledge and clarity of explanations. Looking forward to his future courses!"

Master real estate financial modeling, advance your career, and earn more money.
If you’re an aspiring real estate investment professional looking to break into the real estate investment field, or a current real estate professional looking to advance your career and increase your compensation, you’re in the right place.
My name is Justin Kivel, and I’m a real estate investment professional with a love for teaching. Throughout my career, I’ve worked on over $1.5 billion of closed acquisitions across multifamily, retail, office, and mixed-use properties. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in real estate investing and have spent almost a decade in the industry across private equity, finance, and brokerage roles.
Unfortunately, most of what I know today I had to learn on the job. Although great courses exist on Microsoft Excel and financial modeling, I couldn’t find a resource that was specifically tailored toward real estate investment professionals that would actually walk me through exactly what I needed to know to succeed in the real estate investment industry.
These courses are that resource.
After dozens of phone calls and coffee meetings with college students and aspiring real estate investment professionals, I realized that most people were asking exactly what I was asking when I was in their shoes.
“What skills do I actually need to know to break into the real estate investment industry, or advance in my current real estate investment career?”
These courses were created to teach you those skills.
Our students have gone on to land jobs at some of the top real estate investment, development, and brokerage firms across the globe, including Brookfield Asset Management, Hines, Starwood Capital Group, LaSalle Investment Management, Eastdil Secured, JLL, CBRE, and many more.
Over 50,000 current and aspiring real estate investment professionals have used these courses to help them ace real estate financial modeling interview exams to land their dream jobs, secure consulting gigs with top private equity firms, build (and rebuild) entire financial models from scratch, and confidently analyze their own potential real estate investments.
So whatever that next step in your real estate investment career looks like, these courses are here to help you get there as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Looking forward to seeing you in class!
