Lee Anselmo Blackman
It was my first time studying the subject of real estate in such detail. The course material is presented in a very understandable way and I really enjoyed it. I will surely revert to it in the later stages of my business studies, no matter where. It is great that CFI allows two years of access to its course. Now I am eager to start a new real-estate related course within this CBCA Program.
Having previously underwritten multiple properties for clients, I took this course to better understand the process behind debt financing risk metrics. This course was excellent for this reason and I am glad I was able to improve my understanding of loan-to-value calculations.
