Testimonials

“As a relative novice to Excel and financial modelling, the real estate finance and financial modelling course was genuinely one of the most beneficial and useful training courses I have ever attended. It is a course that I leave with very relevant and transferable skills and a deeper level of understanding the core basics of real estate valuation principles and of Excel, which help me to do my day job more efficiently and start me on the road to “loving spread sheets”. This is clearly a testament to the fantastic teaching quality. Thank you Maria!”

A very worthwhile course for real estate finance modellers of all levels, from beginners to those looking to refine their skills. Maria was very thorough and diligent in her explanation, taking us through the basic principles of building a cash flow in Excel to refining our inputs and detailed variables. A great course and highly recommended to anyone looking to enhance their excel and real estate modelling skills. I will definitely be coming back for the advanced course.”

”Maria is a great teacher when it comes to financial modelling in a practical and informative way – I certainly learnt not only new things with Excel but also on real estate financing; I shall be calling upon her help with my financial models in a new venture soon!”

Maria was able to bring my general understanding of real estate finance to a higher level by creating a bespoke one-on-one excel modelling session to suit my specific needs.   She was extremely accommodating and managed to cover a lot of ground in just one day without compromising on quality.

Her ability to convey some difficult concepts with ease as well as her friendly demeanour made a relatively dry topic a pleasure to learn.

Maria proved invaluable when we were looking to improve our excel model. She quickly grasped what we were looking to achieve and delivered it efficiently. She was always quick to respond to queries and patient in dealing with them. She went beyond the scope of her instruction many times, and I would thoroughly recommend her services.
