What our students are saying

Edith Gonzales
Investment Sales Analyst at Northmarq Capital
"Having been part of Foresite’s Commercial Real Estate Training Program, I can say that this is an incredible opportunity to be mentored by industry leaders and veterans from Foresite Commercial Real Estate. Bethany, Chad, Alexandria, and the whole Foresite team were amazing to work with and were always willing to meet virtually one-on-one and provide insightful information for our course work. I’m grateful to have been part of Foresite’s 2020 Training Program, as I made so many connections and it led me to my current employment at NorthMarq!"
Kyle Bubela
Banking Professional at Jefferson Bank
"My career is in commercial lending and this is where the class really helped me become both more confident in talking to customers about development projects but also underwriting their projects."
Kate Silvas, CEdC
Economic Development Consultant at Verde
“Foresite’s CRE Launch Program was top-notch. As a professional economic developer, I had certain preconceived ideas of what this course would teach me. The program easily surpassed those expectations. I gained a deeper appreciation of the many facets of commercial real estate — from macro economics to micro economics, outstanding lectures from solid professionals and real world projects — I felt I came away with a lot more than I expected. I cannot speak more highly about this program. Thank you again for this remarkable opportunity.”

Frequently asked questions

Why do you say you are the second best commercial real estate training?

Because we believe the first best is shadowing a wise mentor for years. When that isn't available, or when the mentor just needs support, commercial resources steps in to support you in your education.

Who is behind this training?

We aren't academics, we are current commercial real estate professionals with decades of experience in what we teach.  This program was written and created by the team at Foresite Commercial Real Estate for their own property management and brokerage teams and is now available to everyone. 

Who are these courses designed for?

The courses are designed for anyone working in or with the commercial real estate industry.  They are not designed just for those involved in transactions but everyone needing more familiarity and technical knowledge of the industry.

Is this a sales coaching service for agents and brokers?

It is not.  We can recommend several such services, but this program is designed to provide technical training and education.

Who are these courses not for?

These courses are written for those entering the industry for the first time or looking to understand a new part of the industry. They are not designed for industry veterans with decades of experience in the course topic. However, many established professionals have enjoyed taking courses in new areas not a part of their specialty.
