About us

Property Overview Professional Training.

 

Property Overview – Property Insight. We create training courses reflecting our ethos of excellence and enthusiasm.

We offer courses ranging from generalist to specialist and in-depth. It ranges from an introduction to property in all shapes and sizes including residential, commercial, retail and leasing, to 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 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 practitioners sometimes mixed-in with academia. They are trusted, renowned specialists in their fields, and can offer insight & experience in a way that most other training companies cannot.

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 Real Estate principles. We have received rave reviews and we aim to keep material fresh and relevant.

We deliver public courses in central London and can offer them in Edinburgh and in-house across the world. In Edinburgh we have An Introduction to Property on 18 October.

September will see 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. We continue to run the new courses ‘Understanding commercial real estate leasing’ and ‘Deeper understanding of Real Estate cash flows‘ in early October.

All the above courses – plus courses on UK PRS – are available as in-house courses, in the UK or abroad.

We have a proven track record providing training to companies such as Altus, Avison Young, AVIVA, Capita Land, CBRE, Colliers, 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 and Source8.
