Who is this course for


Real estate investors who find underwriting and spreadsheets intimidating. Streamline the process before you open a spreadsheet.


Aspiring real estate investors who have taken other courses, masterminds, and/or bootcamps and are still confused by all of the numbers


Aspiring underwriters who want to develop this niche skillset. You're an analyst, an engineer, a researcher.

This is step #1 into REI.

What you’ll get out of this course

A process that lays down the foundation for you to start vetting apartment deals. Pass on deals without even opening a spreadsheet.

By following a macro-to-micro approach that starts off with online research and publicly available data, save yourself the hassle of digging deep into every deal that crosses your desk.

A complete toolkit with databases and other resources needed to get started in underwriting.

Get a step-by-step guide on all of the data you need to collect and the online tools you need to use. I've done the hard work of vetting dozens of programs and resources so you don't have to.

Real-world benchmarks and rules of thumb that active multifamily investors use.

Learn directly from a full-time multifamily investor who underwrites across the country and get a behind-the-scenes look at how investors acquire deals today.

A bite-sized overview of spreadsheet modeling.

The art allows you to reject deals, the science allows you to pursue deals. While we cannot cover modeling in a short course, get some candid insights into what it takes to become a full-time underwriter and how to improve technical skills.

A candid look into the life of a full-time real estate investor.

I was on the 9-to-5 grind not too long ago. This transition was one of the hardest (but most rewarding) changes in my life. If you're looking to make a similar transition and want to be mentally prepared, get the inside scoop on what it takes.

Stop buying real estate with back-of-the-napkin math. If you want to gamble, go to Vegas.

Who is this course NOT for


You expect to close on deals after one course that spans a few weeks.

This course will elevate your journey but it's one of many steps.


You expect investing to be easy and passive.

Real estate takes years of effort. Find out how to optimize but don't expect shortcuts.


You need to be convinced that multifamily is for you.

We'll cover the advantages briefly but do your homework if you're on the fence.

What people are saying

        Jason has taught me so much about real estate investing. His willingness to share his exact processes and numbers has saved me hours of headache. Without his guidance, it would've taken me twice as long to get started.

        Jason is a strong underwriter that uses relevant data to support his findings. I appreciate that he teases out the finer details of where a deal could potentially be at risk, and takes an objective approach. I've learned a lot in the past year.

Underwriting neither starts nor ends with a spreadsheet. If you're opening up Excel as your first step, you're wasting time.

The difference between good and bad underwriting can be financial freedom or bankruptcy. When you're dealing with assets (and debt) worth millions of dollars, you need to know what you're doing.


Throughout my career as a data science leader and a full-time multifamily investor, I mastered the ability to use data to both mitigate risk and tell stories.

I left a six-figure day job when I had 0 units and couldn't tell a soffit from SOFR. I used an undervalued, niche skillset in underwriting to find the right partners, teams, and deals. I want to teach you how to master this exact skillset.

Let me share with you everything I've learned - my biggest mistakes and best decisions - that's allowed me to scale to 300+ apartment units in less than 2 years.

If my story resonates, this course is for you.
