I am the founder of RealData® Inc.,, a software firm serving real estate investors, developers and agents since 1982.  

Our flagship product, "Real Estate Investment Analysis, Standard Edition," is now in its 18th edition.  This program is designed to help income-property investors analyze such properties, structure partnerships, and produce presentations to buyers, sellers, lenders and equity partners.  We also produce analysis software for commercial and residential development projects, as well as a variety of financial tools.

Investor education is a big part of our mission. To that end, I recently launched a comprehensive online video course at In it, I teach the techniques, terminology, and metrics that successful income-property investors use when analyzing deals. The course also includes case study examples and a variety of helpful resources.

I'm the author of "What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know About Cash Flow…," now in its third, updated edition, as well as  "Mastering Real Estate Investment: Examples, Metrics and Case Studies."

And finally -- I have taught real estate finance in Columbia University’s Master of Science in Real Estate Development program for more than a decade.
