About us

Property Overview Professional Training.

 

Property Overview – Property Insight. We create training courses – now available on-line – reflecting our ethos of excellence and enthusiasm. We make it happen by offering courses ranging from generalist to specialist & in-depth.

Courses range from an introduction to property in all shapes and sizes, and are available on-line due to COVID-19. Courses include residential, commercial, retail, development and leasing. We also have foundation knowledge courses on the UK Private Rented Sector, rating methods, quantitative methods, risk management, Commercial Real Estate debt, real estate valuations and dissecting property cash flows in all its shapes, sizes and purposes.

We have equally trained people across the spectrum: ranging from those with no property experience or formal training to qualified surveyors with several decades worth of experience and senior managers, investment committee and board members.  We offer our insight, experience and expertise coupled with enthusiasm and humour. We offer thoroughly enjoyable courses and receive rave reviews.

Our trainers don’t simply teach theory from a book they got off the shelf: they share real-life stories and experience, which brings the theory to life. See Our Team below to see our huge network of expert trainers, who are a mix of down-to-earth practitioners and academics. They are trusted, renowned specialists in their fields, and can offer insight & experience in a way that most other training companies cannot.

We deliver public courses on-line, and when possible again in central London and in Edinburgh. We teach our in-house  on-line across the world.

Late 2019 saw the birth of a raft of new courses focusing on basic maths and quantitative methods; Private Equity funds investing in property; ratings & ratings methods; risk management theory. All our courses are available as on-line courses for individuals or companies.

We have a proven track record providing training to companies such as Altus, Avison Young, AVIVA, Capita Land, CBRE, Colliers, CoStar, Coyote Software, The Crown Estate, Cushman & Wakefield, EPRA, Future of London, Gerald Eve, GVA, Green Street Advisors, Infabode, LaSalle IM, Legal & General IM, M&G, Mitie, PGIM, PMA, RCA, Savills, Schroders, Source8 and USS.
