Here's what some of our students have said about the course:
★★★★★ "Excellent course that teaches you financial modeling in Excel for CRE. I purchased the course after starting a new job as valuation analyst for a RE asset manager and it has helped me immensely. I have a background in PE funds and my excel skills are fairly advanced so for me the added value was understanding the specificities of CRE. I now look forward to completing the advanced RE modelling course. This instructor is great: no fluff, clear explanations, top notch material and step-by-step directions. Justin is also very responsive with answering your queries. I highly recommend the course!"
★★★★★ "This course is great. I learned everything I needed to build a model for an interview for a Financial Analyst role at a Real Estate Private Equity Fund. And I got the job. I have since gotten other courses by Justin, as they are what I need to get me up to speed at my new job. Also, Justin is great at answering questions when I get stuck and pointing me in the right direction."
★★★★★ "Excellent Course! Thank you for all your hard work in transforming a complex concept into an easy to understand format. This course has multiplied my understanding of financial modeling and the use of Excel. I learned more through this platform than the traditional institutional setting. A great resource and educator."
★★★★★ "Overall, this course was such an awesome experience! As a CRE investor as well, I took this course with the goal of it helping to rebuild my financial model and, what can I say, mission accomplished! From the structure, to the pace, the exercises, Justin's CRE knowledge and Excel tips/tricks - it was exactly what I was looking for and more!"
★★★★★ "Cannot believe the value in this course!! Best deal in real estate education. Thank you Justin, can't wait to take the next course. I could not recommend it more."
★★★★★ "This is a top notch course. The self-pace is perfect for me and it helped refresh all of the concepts that I learned in my grad school real estate courses. Just follow along and practice the examples and you'll extract tremendous value from a modeling perspective!!"
★★★★★ "Justin is awesome! His teaching style makes learning very intuitive. I would recommend this class for anyone that is trying to break into CRE or expand their current foundation of CRE. I was recommended by a friend who spent $600 on a course but found this one to be more helpful and easier to follow/understand."
★★★★★ "Superb course that teaches you the fundamentals of CRE modelling you need to know. Justin is a really good lecturer and he is very responsive with answering your queries, not just about the course material but even things related to your career in CRE. I would recommend the course to anyone looking to understand the fundamentals of CRE modelling."

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 40,000 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!
