“Foundations of Real Estate Financial Modelling taught me more than I ever expected. From giving a great introduction to various real estate topics in the first part of the book, to giving clear explanations of formulas used in the models, I felt very comfortable with the material even though this was my first time learning this topic. Thank you to Roger and the team for a job well done. This has given me a great basis and understanding of real estate financial modelling.”
