Who Could Benefit?

A 1-day intensive course for those who work in property and lack formalised property-specific training or have a one-sided background as well as those working with real estate sector clients and who are keen to understand them better. Suits those in the UK or abroad.

This engaging course provides the big picture, context and fundamentals per topic, based on the insight and experience of a seasoned and approachable real estate practitioner. We deal with all asset types, but the main focus is commercial and alternative property sectors.

We drill down where needed. We teach the fundamentals and show how everything fits together, making each attendee comfortable with lots of jargon in one engaging day. We use real examples and anecdotes to bring the theory to life, enabling attendees to relate this to their jobs.

We teach theory & practice. We only use knowledgeable, engaging, approachable and energetic trainers. A course attracting rave reviews. A fuller curriculum stretching over 1.5 or 2 days is available (see Understanding Property or you can pick modules from other courses). Both courses are available to be taught in-house as well. Trainers: Kaushik Shah (London), Alan Thompson (Edinburgh)


An Introduction to Property (1 day course)

Foundation knowledge for those working in property or with property clients at only £630pp (public course). It provides a birds-eye, measured 360° view of the property industry. It explains how it all fits together, what drives it, how things work and who does what. We get you comfortable with key bits of jargon that you are likely to come across day-to-day, related to the letting, management and investment side. Real Estate might be slow but is constantly evolving, and we provide insight into the most important trends including technology. We provide context on how property compares to stocks and bonds as an investment. The real-life case study ties everything back together. Modules in brief are:

• Property needs occupiers to thrive: why buy, why rent?

"thank you for an impressive training session – very knowledgeable, professional, and, indeed, inspiring"
"This course is so challenging to make relevant to 12 different people in 12 roles and Cleo did a great job at being agile and leaning into areas that were more relevant. Thank you!"

Property Overview did a brilliant training program with ARGUS which I had the good fortune to attend. It was an introduction to property covering topics such as valuation and identifying investment opportunities. The trainer involved us in the training which was very interactive and subsequently helped us learn and understand the material with ease. They showed us some real-life case studies where we could apply what we learnt in the training session. The Property Overview team catered the training specifically to our team’s needs. The program was delivered with high energy, enthusiasm and humour which created a fun and collaborative atmosphere for us to learn quite in-depth material. I left with a much deeper understanding of the property market which I wouldn’t have gained from reading books. My questions were answered and I was given more information than I expected. I highly recommend Cleo and her team at Property Overview if you require any training in Commercial Real Estate.
