Master real estate financial modeling. Advance your career. Make more money.

This course will walk you step-by-step through dozens of advanced real estate financial modeling and analysis exercises, and whether you're looking to break into the real estate industry for the first time at a top investment, development, brokerage, or lending firm, looking to take the next step in your existing real estate career, or looking to analyze deals to build your own property portfolio, this course will help you take your real estate financial modeling and analysis skill set to an expert level.

If you don't know me already, my name is Justin Kivel, and throughout my career, I've worked for and with some of the largest commercial real estate investment, brokerage, and lending firms in the world. And to share what I've learned, I created a training company called Break Into CRE, and I've had the privilege of teaching tens of thousands of students real estate financial modeling and analysis through the Break Into CRE platform.

After spending almost a decade in the industry myself, this course packages up everything that I've learned about how some of the largest and most successful investment firms in the business both create and use real estate financial models in Excel to analyze and evaluate investment opportunities.

At the end of the course, you'll be able to:

  • Create dual-metric data tables to sensitize multiple investment return metrics within the same analysis

  • Build a dynamic best/base/weak case analysis that automatically calculates returns based on your upside (and downside)investment scenarios

  • Create a next-buyer analysis to make sale value projections at the end of a real estate investment

  • Partition the IRRof a deal to understand the percentage of returns coming from operating cash flow versus sale proceeds.

  • Build a hold/sell analysis to calculate the optimal sale year of an investment

  • Build out senior construction loan draws, mezzanine construction loan draws, and dynamic equity draws to model unique capital structures on ground-up development deals

  • Model investor cash flow distributions on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis

This course is perfect for you if:

  • You're a college student or graduate student looking to break into the real estate industry upon graduation, and you want to make sure you have the modeling and analysis skills you'll need to ace an Excel modeling exam and stand out from the competition

  • You're a current real estate professional looking to improve your modeling and analysis skills to take the next step in your career and increase your compensation

  • You're a real estate investor looking to build the skills necessary to analyze unique deal scenarios and make decisions related to new investment opportunities or your existing real estate portfolio

Here's what some of our students have had to say:

★★★★★ "This course was definitely intense, but the information is invaluable. Justin does a great job explaining everything thoroughly and I've learned more about Excel in my past few courses than my entire life."

★★★★★ "Another great course by Justin. I found this to be the most difficult of all his courses, very advanced. The best part is the comprehensive case study at the end that really ties everything together well. I felt like I learned a lot."

★★★★★ "Loved this course. Justin's approach is very didactic and on point. If you have strong understanding of the basics in real estate finance, but don't know how to create a model, this course is for you. As Justin said, the secret to succeeding in this particular field is practice. Create the model again from scratch, go back to the solution file to make sure you get the right numbers."

★★★★★ "This was a fantastic course! Justin is very knowledgeable and explains all the concepts extremely well. I feel that this course has helped me very much and I am looking forward to continuing practicing the topics and improving on my skill set. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Justin for the great work that you have put together."

★★★★★ "If you are a beginner to a veteran in CRE, and you've always wondered how to analyze an investment and the capital stack behind it, this is the only course you'll ever need. Justin Kivel does an excellent job of breaking down each of the considerations and explains them thoroughly. Thanks to Justin for putting out such a high-quality course!"

If you have a basic understanding of real estate finance and Excel and you're looking to take your real estate financial modeling and analysis skill set to an expert level, you're in the right place.

Looking forward to seeing you inside!
