Interested in breaking into private equity real estate? When I first got started in commercial real estate investing, there was no guidebook that showed me how to break into the big firms and really propel my career forward. I had so many questions.
What kind of skills did I need to know? Everyone says "Excel", but do I really need to know how to write Macros and create stochastic modeling simulations?
Everyone tells me to "network," but how do I actually go about doing that? I don't have unlimited time (or money) to take people to coffee and lunch, and networking is pretty uncomfortable as it is.
How do I actually find solid job opportunities? It feels like all of the career sites out there are resume black holes, and are only showing me residential real estate agent jobs or crappy commissioned sales gigs.
And what kind of money will I actually make (and why does everyone act like this is such a big secret)? This is important, but no one can seem to give me a straight answer.
If you have any of these questions, this course has the answers.
This course is perfect for:
Current college students or recent graduates looking to break into the real estate private equity industry
Current real estate professionals looking to advance their careers and increase their compensation by moving into private equity real estate finance
Professionals from other fields who are looking to make a career switch into private equity real estate
Commercial real estate investing can be an extremely lucrative business, with 2020 median total compensation figures for an acquisitions associate in retail, office/industrial, and multifamily coming in at $137K, $143K, and $121K, respectively, according to CEL & Associates.

This course was created to give you the leg up you need to land your resume at the top of the stack.

★★★★★ "Really good insight into the whole CRE job process, from start to finish. I like how comprehensive this course was, from learning how to adequately use LinkedIn, to negotiate your offer, and what to do next. I've taken a number of courses from Justin, and every time there is something new to learn, even for somebody that's already in the RE arena."
★★★★★ "Another high quality course from Justin. [...] Wish I knew about this a couple years ago. Very actionable networking and resume advice. Super helpful checklists and templates to systematize efforts. Lots of smart insights into how CRE people think and will view certain wording when sending networking emails/messages."
★★★★★"I truly enjoyed Justin's course of How to Land a Job in Private Equity Real Estate, and I am looking forward to starting a couple of his other course in the near future. I found this course to be very beneficial for someone just starting out or for a career switcher, like myself, because it provides a clear path of how to start and the skills needed to break in."

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.
