About us

Property Overview Professional Training.

 

Property Overview – Property Insight. We offer courses ranging from generalist to specialist and in-depth: an introduction to property in all shapes and sizes including residential, commercial, retail, the UK PRS, Commercial RE debt in theory and practice, 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 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 have put our flagship training courses An Introduction to Property (1 day) and Understanding Property (2 days) in a nice new jacket with even more thought-provoking content than before, whilst continuing to provide a solid knowledge base and understanding of the key RE principles. We have received rave reviews and we aim to keep material fresh and relevant.
