Initially, I was really pretty skeptical. Because I have taken what purports to be commercial real estate education, and it’s pathetic. It’s either poorly done, or it’s so dry and technical that you want to rip the eyeballs out of your head - or - it’s so generic that it doesn’t apply to practice in your state. CCA is completely a horse of a different color - it is bar none the highest quality commercial real estate education that I’ve ever seen - and I’ve been in the business 30 years.Sheila SimpsonBridgeway Realty
