“I am CERTAIN that the Accelerator has given me the tools and information necessary for my transition into commercial real estate. Your hard work has positively impacted my life and the lives of others. Keep up the great work!”
Leonard A.
“Really blown away at the precision and expertise. Issues were addressed within minutes and the materials worked seamlessly.”
Steve C.
“This was a fantastic and thorough course. I feel like I got what I paid for. Practical knowledge, and great teachers.”
Wesley D.
“Thanks for your knowledge! I can sense your passion for the business, and it’s helped me a ton with analyzing land deals/new development projects.”
Brian J.
“This program was a lot of fun. The case study approach felt like I was actually working at a REPE or dev shop. And of course, Spencer and Michael explained every concept clearly and effectively — anything from Excel shortcuts to complex topics like equity waterfalls and debt. I’ll review certain sections a second time and recreate the models just for fun (and for extra practice) in the near future!”
Marion D.
“I prefer to learn things in a step by step manner, starting with the basics and building upon them. That is exactly what the Accelerator was able to do for me; it broke down each of the concepts in a digestible way and challenged me to apply them in the case study examples. I am starting an Analyst position at a REPE firm in January 2020 and the Accelerator not only gave me the modeling confidence to land the job but it put me in a position to hit the ground running on day one and model with confidence.”
Louis P.
“Best online course I’ve had so far – lecturer explained concepts in great detail and in a step-by-step manner, catering to an audience who may have no previous industry knowledge.”
Javier G.

“A great challenge. Real applicable concepts and with great examples.”

Dusty N.
“Valuable, extremely relevant to my career path, enjoyable, fun. This course was key in helping me ace my technical interview and land the job I wanted.”
Tai P.
“I am a fan of your Adventures in CRE. It’s a great resource and your Acquisitions model is the best I have found. I’ve used it to underwrite a large number of properties and close a few neighborhood apartment deals. So thank you!”
Nicholas E.
“Unbelievable. 10/10 would and have recommended”
Matt S.
“Thanks for all you have done on A.CRE. It has been a great resource for me. I work for a relatively small investment/management company which means I have had to do a lot of self teaching. Your website has been instrumental in my learning process.”
