Interested in learning how to analyze retail real estate investments? This course was designed to take you from zero to hero in retail real estate investing, After taking this course, you will be able to confidently analyze a retail real estate deal, whether you're looking to buy a property on your own, invest with partners, or land a job with a top retail real estate private equity firm.
This curriculum was specifically designed with the following people in mind:
Aspiring commercial real estate investors who want to buy bigger properties with less headache - Retail properties are generally larger and often entail fewer headaches than a single-family home investment, a fourplex, or even a small apartment building. The longer lease terms and business-oriented tenant base allows investors to take a more hands-off approach to retail than traditional real estate investments, especially for triple-net single tenant properties.
Students or career switchers who want to land a job in retail real estate private equity - According to CEL & Associates, the 2021 median total compensation for a retail acquisitions associate was $137K per year. This course will teach you the fundamental retail product-specific skills and knowledge you won't be able to find anywhere else.
Passive real estate investors looking at investing in retail real estate deals - Retail deals can be extremely lucrative - long-term contractual lease obligations limit downside in the case of market corrections, operating income can be far more predictable than a single-family or multifamily real estate investment, and massive returns within short periods of time are very possible with lease-ups of large portions of a property's square footage. But as a passive investor, do you really know what you're getting yourself into? Is the property you are looking at a "good" deal? This course will teach you the main things you need to look out for when investing in a retail real estate investment deal.

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.
