After consulting with him, I feel much more confident in making an informed decision on my deal. I would highly recommend him without hesitation. Thanks, Ben! " - Dr. Bez
Four 90-Minute Sessions
Professional Framework
Educational Focus
"WOW! That is all I have to say about Ben's consulting. My partner and I studied Ben’s CFFU, but we reached out to him because we were in the middle of making an offer on 40 units, and we wanted to make sure we weren’t missing things. And we are glad we did! If you compare my initial underwriting model to the one I created as a result of consulting Ben, it is worlds apart. Not even close. And the kind of things I was missing weren’t small details - they were highly important things. Ben insisted on 4, 90-minute sessions. I tried to argue (can’t blame me for trying). But, Ben said the model covers distinct areas and would require 4 sessions.

I can recommend Ben’s consulting with no reservations. My knowledge of underwriting deals has grown so much and I am so much more confident in my abilities. Ben understands real estate and he is able to explain it in a way that not too many people can. I am in the process of underwriting a 40-unit deal right now." ~Jeff
How it Works
Once you engage, we will discuss if the consulting is right for you, and then schedule your four appointments.
  •  Each consultation is 90 minutes.
  •  Screenshare is used in all consultations.
  •  All consultations are recorded for your future use.
  •  Consultations 1, 2, and 3 will take place during the first week.
  •  You have one week following #3 to work on your underwriting. 
  •  The last consultation will take place at this time.
Should I wait until I have a deal under contract?
That’s like asking - should I take some violin lessons now, or wait until they call me to perform at Carnegie Hall and do it then?!

This consultation will help if you have a deal to work on right now. But it will give you much more...a complete education and framework to not only analyze, but also find deals and to be competitive in today's market.
What's Covered
The first three sessions are devoted to understanding the model, all of the components, and all of the rationale. In consultation #4 we will analyze your deal within your newly built underwriting model.
