Luckily, on today’s podcast, we are excited to have a man who’s professional life is dedicated to teaching investors the ins and outs of commercial real estate investing, Frank Gallinelli. Frank is a best selling author, business owner, and real estate professor who definitely knows his stuff.

This interview contains some powerful key metrics, data, and tools you’ll need if you ever plan on investing in anything more than a single family home. This interview, like all of our BiggerPockets Podcasts, is full of real-world, actionable content without all the hype.

  1. Hey all – Unfortunately we needed to repost this article, so we lost all the comments. Sorry to everyone who posted something. We had to test reposting because the podcast was not appearing on iTunes . . . hopefully that changes soon…

  2. Do you offer your class course work virtually ?

    Anyway learn what your teachering your students via virtual ? ( basically )

    Beside your books ,, fyi

  3. This was actually the first podcast I listened to on Bigger Pockets. I just listened to it again for the second time. Commercial real estate investing sounds exciting and really profitable but would you recommend it for a newbie who is starting out with very little capital? Great show guys.

  4. Enjoyed this podcast. My day job is as a commercial real estate appraiser, I’m also an aspring commercial investor. So, I am always curious to learn about commercial real estate investing from the investor’s perspective. I thought Frank’s comments / advice were pragmatic especially for someone who has little-to-no knowledge of the commercial side of RE investing. I would love to hear more on the subject of commercial real estate in future podcasts, particularly on the topic of conventional financing of commercial real estate deals. Thanks Bigger Pockets for some great podcasts, and thank you Frank for contributing. Keep up the good work gentlemen!

    I bought your book – What Every Real Estate Investor Needs to Know About Cash Flow… And 36 Other Key Financial Measures – and it’s been great so far. Just starting to tackle IRR.

    One question – the Excel sheets you offer on your website aren’t working – I can’t type in numbers. (I’m using Chrome). And when I download, they won’t open.

    Any suggestions?

    Great podcast. Even though I’m a couple of years behind listening to the original podcast recording, the information given in this podcast is great to have in your REI bank of knowledge.
