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!
