This was an excellent, highly concentrated, intro course for young professionals who are interested in commercial real estate development. The teacher was extremely engaging and brought in an invaluable perspective on how to tackle challenges in real life market examples. I was also amazed by the quality of classmates, some of them have experience in capital markets, asset management, brokerage, and commercial mortgages, which is a great additional benefit to the training course.

The entire course was a great learning experience because of the detailed procedural explanation of development considerations and interesting case studies. The big difference from some academic courses was the professional real estate experience of the instructor... Andrew pointed out the key differences between a poor real estate analysts who just enter market info into proforma models and a good analyst who leverages market insights.

I had a great learning experience at the Beyond Proformas F.R.E.D course and was thrilled with the complete overview of real estate development that Andrew was able to pack into a single day. The information provided was a great take on commercial development across multiple Canadian markets and the small class sizes and great event space made for a fun and interactive learning experience. I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in real estate development!
