Real estate is everywhere.  It is where we live, where we play, where we shop, where we work, where we learn. 

Real Estate Analysis: Environments and Activities is your guide to the enchanting world of real estate.  Real estate is as much process as product, and to understand it is a fascinating journey into the interlocking web of complex human behavior that results in the space that we shape and that ultimately, truly shapes us. 

Real estate is a "people business."  To understand real estate you must appreciate the people who operate in it. Real Estate Analysis features several conversations in the book with successful real estate professionals who candidly discuss their careers and offer advice to those just entering the real estate world.

Real Estate Analysis is separated in three sections:

  • Part One provides an introduction to the basic knowledge and skills needed to get the most out of the reader's journey through real estate.
  • Part Two introduces the reader to the environment within which real estate operates.
  • Each chapter in Part III is devoted to an activity and an associated set of real estate careers from our activities model. The reader will learn about each of these important careers, often hearing directly from practicing professionals to gain their insights and advice.


To further reinforce and exercise what the reader has learned from Real Estate Analysis, a supporting website was developed.  This website, actively maintained, updated, and enriched, features exercises, drag-and-drop scenarios, sample test questions, interactive flash cards, and more.
