Headquartered in London, UK, Bayrock Real Estate Consulting was initially founded as a platform to provide and teach aspiring real estate analysts and investment professionals the best practice modelling techniques needed to successfully appraise transactions and complete modelling tests.
Shortly after launching the first self-study training program (“Mastering The Modelling Test”), a team of highly experienced modelling experts produced and designed Bayrock’s flagship commercial real estate modelling program (“Invesment Grade Real Estate Modelling”).
Through its success, the Investment Grade program formed the foundation of Bayrock’s corporate lifetime training license. The license grants our clients lifetime access to a bespoke self-study modelling program that can be transferred across a company/team platform. Ultimately, the license reduces employee-training overheads by eliminating the need for continual classroom-based education. From origination, Bayrock Real Estate has saved thousands of pounds from our clients training budgets.
Taking advantage of the economic uncertainty of the upcoming EU Referendum and the changing directions of Foreign Direct Investment, Bayrock Real Estate launched its transaction consultancy arm. Bayrock Real Estate’s consulting team consists of commercial real estate experts that have extensive hands-on experience and expertise in transaction due diligence and underwriting, capital raising, acquisitions, valuations and dispositions.
Since its inception, the Bayrock Real Estate team has provided its consultancy services to global banks, high-net-worth individuals, Developers, Investment Managers and agents, amounting to a combined completed transaction volume of £550 million across a global reach. Bayrock Real Estate Consulting is set to open its first US office in Chicago, Illinois, at the end of 2017.
