A good introduction to the topic. Presentation is basically a reading of the slides, but the slide deck is hearty. A few more examples working through cap rates and such would be welcome, but I feel the subject was pretty well-covered overall.

The instructor was very knowledgable and he covered lots of material in the time allotted. His quicker speech pattern kept the course moving at a good pace. I will definitely take other course by this instructor.

This course was a great overview of commercial real estate. The instructor was able to impart the big picture of commercial real estate in a little over an hour.
