I nailed a financial modeling test and got a job offer at a great real estate private equity shop thanks to you guys.
I have to compliment your company on clearly explaining valuation concepts to me. To put this into context, I asked my professor in my investment class last week if he knew of a way to value an income property using discounted cash flow analysis. Long story short…you guys are smarter than my professor. THANKS PropertyMetrics! “
I never would have figured out how to model waterfalls so efficiently and accurately on my own – this course was 10/10. Already using the formatting and formulas in my own models at work.

I am commercial real estate lender for a large regional bank and I recommend PropertyMetrics to everyone.
I want you to know how much I appreciate PropertyMetrics. As a 30 year real estate attorney focusing primarily on commercial leasing and purchase and sale of commercial properties, it is extremely helpful to see the principles I have learned and used for so many years explained so clearly.
