Publications in Progress, 2017

Beginner’s Guide to Real Estate Private Equity

Easy-to-read guide for beginners which focuses on three core concepts: (a) real estate finance, (b) real estate fundamentals, and (c) private equity. I expect to complete the book by December 2017.

Future of Autonomous Real Estate

Global investment in self-driving car ventures (also called autonomous vehicles or AVs) reached more than $46 billion since 2015, clearly signifying that the autonomous revolution has arrived in the automobile sector. It is still unclear whether this presents more of a challenge or an opportunity for real estate investors, but established real estate players are starting to take bold steps to engage with emerging innovations.

I wanted to map out the activities that established players believe could allow them to reimagine their portfolios in light of this trend. In my interviews with 25 influential real estate executives involved in innovation, I discovered how AVs are predicted to change real estate, and how they plan to remain one step ahead.

Through teaching graduate students at NYU, I strive to provide them with an opportunity to:

  • broaden their understanding of capital markets, real estate finance, and real estate as an asset class;
  • better understand why certain real estate underwriting assumptions are used, and how those assumptions affect investment analysis and returns;
  • work, learn, and apply their knowledge and skills in an interdisciplinary environment;
  • engage in learning that is directly focused on career and interview skills, particularly for real estate finance careers;
  • refine their written and oral communication skills.
