The commercial real estate game has long been reserved for big financial institutions and deep-pocked private investors, but not anymore.
With the emergence of crowd-investing platforms and the right investment knowledge, practically anyone can start investing in commercial real estate today.
Whether you're new to real estate investing or have dabbled in residential real estate, getting an understanding of commercial real estate can seriously expand your investment horizons. However, you have to have some foundational knowledge before you get started.
With this course, you'll take the first crucial steps toward understanding commercial real estate.
Why should you learn from me?
I have an MBA from Stanford University and have worked on many commercial real estate properties across a dozen asset types in multiple markets. I even helped create the underwriting standards for a 2000-store private restaurant chain, helping them open new locations around the world.
And as a licensed broker and real estate consultant, I've helped many private clients with locating, evaluating, and structuring investment opportunities including multi-million dollar commercial property acquisitions and 1031 exchanges.
Enroll in this course and you will learn to speak confidently about the core concepts of commercial real estate.
We’ll start you off with simple foundational concepts, using easy-to-follow explanations (on purpose). We'll cover concepts like the replacement cost, highest and best use, absorption, and many key financial concepts critical to understanding commercial real estate.
We'll then dive into more than a dozen detailed case studies inspired by real-world commercial deals we've previously worked on, all paired with custom-built investment models so you can learn by doing, exactly how professionals evaluate commercial deals across a wide range of asset types.

“Yet another successful course from Symon. Even though I have some experience as an investor, I found this class to be quite valuable. Although I was already quite familiar & comfortable with the course material and topics, the experiences gained from completing the exercises showed me where I have a couple weaknesses in my network. That alone made the class worth my investment…”
This course does assume an understanding of basic real estate investment analysis and is great for those build a solid foundation in commercial real estate as well as those with experience looking for a detailed, but efficient, refresher.
If you want to build a solid foundational knowledge in commercial real estate, this is your course.
