Are you new to commercial real estate or want a refresher course to fill training gaps? Or do you wish you had greater insight into property management and the day-to-day challenges property managers face?

We have a solution for you: The Foundations of Real Estate Management course provides a soup-to-nuts overview of all aspects of CRE including, tenant improvements, OSHA safety requirements, accounting, roofing systems, HVAC, pest control, landscaping, parking and much more.

This course is open to property management professionals and service providers and will be held over three weeks.  We plan to hold this class in-person. Each lecture will be reinforced by behind-the-scenes tours of outstanding buildings. 

Classes and tours will be held at Willis Tower, 500 West Madison, 77 West Wacker, 203 North LaSalle and 111 West Washington. This is an amazing opportunity to get an inside look at Chicago's iconic commercial buildings. Register today!
