REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT                                          LAND DEVELOPMENT                                         PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT








The nuts and bolts of successful real estate development and land development in every Country are exactly the same.


The REDI Foundation, a U.S. Educational Foundation has taught entrepreneurial students across the World to become very successful developers.


Below are some of our recent International Students:

Non-Profit Educational Foundation

Founded: 1973


The REDI Foundation is a non-profit educational institute, and since 1973, over 40,000 attended our Real Estate Development Seminars Worldwide or purchased the Self Study Course. In 2012, The REDI Foundation launched this unparalleled private coaching and project based program.  (We asked our international students three questions: Why do you love your country of origin, why do you want to become a real estate developer, and why did you choose The REDI Foundation's program)


Costa Rica

One of our recent graduates, Mike T. from (who has never developed property before) tells his story. Read how Richard Michael Abraham and The REDI Foundation are changing the lives of students.

" I closed the deal with my housing project. I ended up with a 46.5% share in the company. It's a $25,000,000 million project. My goal is to do 2-3 more deals like this next year. And I graduated REDI’s Real Estate Development Program just one year ago. I always wanted to be a real estate developer but did not know where to start. Everyone told me it would be impossible since I did not have lots of money. I enrolled in The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Mentoring-Certification Program. My first Joint Venture development, my 22-unit Condominium building is now funded and we break ground in two months. My second Joint Venture development is 170 single-family homes and I’ve secured funding and lender financing. As taught in the Course, I negotiated the $2,500,000 land site as equity in the development. My third Joint Venture development I’m working on is a 36-unit Condominium building. In all my developments, I have between a 30%-50% equity position with no capital invested. Landowners and investors want to work with me now because of my expertise learned in the Course. I’m getting closer to my goal of developing 200 residential units per year. All I did to put together these Joint Venture developments was exactly what Richard Michael Abraham had taught me. I couldn't have imagined this before I enrolled the REDI Foundation’s Course/Program. I know now that money for my developments will never be an issue, given that I possess the skills to professionally package, present and have investors calling me for my developments. Having Mr. Abraham advise you privately is something invaluable, that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. The most important factor, to me, is having the confidence that I have someone like Mr. Abraham with practical experience and success by my side, a mentor with my best interest in mind."

Mike T.

south africa

I am South African of origin.

I love my Country of origin because of its incredible landscapes, form the wilds of the Northern Cape to the beauty of the garden route to big-5 country of the bushveld, the Cape peninsula, the karoo and the Drakensberg, Highveld thunderstorms, the sunshine and the wine! The diversity, 11 official languages, 3 capital cities, warm wonderful people and of course: the braai's. Who else has a national BBQ day!

I want to be a developer because of the challenges of creating something out of nothing. Spotting a hidden gem, a piece of land, a dilapidated building and converting that into a dream development.  The detail and art of an architectural well designed building or complex.

I chose the REDI Foundation's 6-month Course for the invaluable opportunity to be personally mentored by Mr. Richard Michael Abraham, the extensive material which is recognized as the world's most comprehensive real estate development Course and all of that combined with very competitive tuition fees.

Dr. William E.


I am originally  from Colombia in South America. Colombians are really nice people, we are always happy and willing to help. Colombian women are beautiful , sweet, and they love to take care of themselves. Colombia has the most delicious coffee in the world. I love how beautiful the country is. Beautiful mountains, clear  rivers, exotic flowers, all kinds of animals and two oceans.

 Indeed, I love to create things. I can imagine a project from the scratch through completion in my head. I enjoy every step involved in the creation of a final development. It is like putting a puzzle together, you know every part is necessary to be able to see the final beautiful picture. Knowing that my development will be able to help hundreds of people by providing them a place to live or to have fun, makes me really happy. I feel that I am making a community better.

I chose The REDI Foundation's 6-Month Real Estate Development Mentoring - Certification Course because it is the most comprehensive development program available. I spend several months looking for a certificate that could really help me reach my goal of putting together large real estate developments that multiple investors can benefit from and where I can earn equity. Having Richard Michael Abraham with years of experience mentoring me and guiding me through the process, was decisive for me to make the final decision.

Dr. Johany H.

Perth, Australia

I love my home city of Perth, Australia, due to its beautiful Mediterranean climate and laid-back vibe. In summer, I spend a lot of the time soaking up the warm Australian sun on our pristine, white sand beaches. There is no place else I’d rather call home.

I wish to become a real estate developer because I see it as one of the few ways to achieve true financial freedom. I decided halfway through my undergraduate degree that I ultimately want to be my own boss, where my financial success is dependent on my hard work and effort. Additionally, real estate development is a creative and entrepreneurial pursuit that will provide me with the most satisfaction and joy.

Choosing the REDI Foundation’s Program was a ‘no-brainer’. All the postgraduate degrees in property development that I researched were expensive and steeped in theory. The REDI Foundation’s Program is the only hands-on Program. Its cost is more than reasonable, especially when considering that all accepted students are taught practical real estate development skills under the personal coaching of Richard Michael Abraham.

Jordan M.

New zealand

I love the beautiful climate, pristine white sandy beaches, majestic mountains and pure crystal clear natural waterways. Our government openly supports innovation, foreign direct investment and diversity. I love that New Zealand is politically and economically stable and embraces entrepreneurialism. New Zealand is a beautiful country full of opportunity.

I am an entrepreneur. Fast moving, focused and passionate about making the world a better place. My desire to build and leave an enduring legacy to society while securing the financial future for my children and delivering value for my joint venture partners.

I wanted a world class nuts and bolts in the trenches development program that was project focused with real course deliverables. Not, an academic course. I needed a course that incorporated joint venture structuring for reasons of market penetration, and I wanted to be privately mentored one-on-one by Mr Richard Michael Abraham.

Peter S.

Venezuela, South America

I was born in Venezuela and moved to Canada 11 years ago. I love the Venezuela climate along with the environmental diversity of its territory - blessed by Mother Nature; it has oceans, mountains, rivers, deserts, grasslands, canyons and forests. Venezuelans always maintain the good humor and a positive attitude, even in the most difficult times.

The idea to build and create something from nothing is my passion. Becoming a Real Estate Developer will allow me to fulfill this passion. Development represents a combination of creativity along with business skills that inspires my entrepreneurial spirit.

Until I discovered REDI, all I could find were costly theoretical postgraduate University programs. Then I found the REDI Foundation's 6-month real estate development Mentoring - Certification program with its unique and practical education approach that cost a fraction of those University programs. Being privately mentored and guided by Mr. Richard Michael Abraham is priceless.

Dumar J.


I am a Jordanian citizen from a Palestinian origin, born and raised in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai offers a progressive mindset, open society and superb infrastructure. Dubai is becoming a main business and economic hub for the region, giving successful developers a larger market to work in.

I wish to become a real estate developer for several reasons. First, I want to follow my interest in the development process, which is a vivid form of value creation for the community, investors and development partners. Second, I want to achieve financial independence and economic freedom for my family and myself. Third I want to create beautiful and beneficial living spaces, which I will be remembered for.

I looked around for the most effective and practical education and training source designed to master the real estate development process and business.  I chose the REDI Foundation’s six months mentoring Real Estate Development Coaching -Certification Program because it is structured around real life experience and not theory. In addition, first hand training and mentoring directly from Richard Michael Abraham brings true value to this Program.

I love most Canadian seasons - the ability to swim in a lake on a hot summer day in the summer or play pond hockey when the lake freezes over in the winter. More importantly, I love the real estate development opportunities available for the people and businesses that enjoy the freedoms of this country.

My passion for real estate development began in my teens when I would see the face of Donald Trump on walls of construction sites for hotels in Miami - I knew I wanted apart of something so grand with positive effect on the community. I want to be a real estate developer because of the entrepreneurial nature of the profession, where my creative and leadership traits make my own dreams a reality, and where financial freedom is dependent on my own work.

I chose The REDI Foundation's 6-month Real Estate Development Coaching - Certification program because of its practical education. To step away from other educational programs that are solely theoretical, and with REDI, to actually be able to apply what I learn into a Joint Venture Development is the perfect way to learn. Plus the opportunity to be privately mentored and guided by Richard Michael Abraham is a true privilege.

Domenic S.

Paris, France

I was born in Paris, and mainly raised in London. Paris and London have a rich history in real estate development easily seen through their unique architecture. In the near future I'm looking forward to being a part of shaping the skyline of Paris and London.

I am fascinated by architecture, the grandeur of buildings. "Buy land, they're not making it anymore - Mark Twain. Real estate development is a vivid example of how to build something from nothing with just a development idea and vision. What truly attracts me to becoming a real estate developer is creating space for living, working, or amusement that defines where people want to be.

I choseᅠ The REDI Foundation's 6-Month Mentoring Real Estate Development Certification Courseᅠ because to be successful in any field, you need to take active steps to achieve your goal. There's no shortcut to success. This 6-Month private Mentoring Course will show me the correct steps and provide the knowledge - together with life lessons in real estate and property development.ᅠ The REDI Foundation's 6-Month Real Estate Development Mentoring - Certification Course ᅠallows me to be 200% focused. Give a man a fish, he eats for a day - Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime. Having Richard Michael Abraham as my mentor - I am given my opportunity to be successful in my first project.

Marc P.


I was born in Sri Lanka and I left when I was only 1 year old. In Sri Lanka, I would love the climate, the beaches on the Indian Ocean, and the tropical vegetation.

Though I come from a family of doctors, I always wanted to become a real estate developer and knew that this career is where I would end up no matter what happened.

I chose the REDI Foundation since Mr. Richard Michael Abraham had started this amazing foundation and was so amazing himself to give of his very valuable time to teach and mentor his students. The REDI Foundation is also the first and best of it’s kind, with Mr. Abraham being the first to make such great education available to our world. And he chose me to be part of his legacy and dreams, and his knowledge, leadership skills and experience gave me all the confidence in the world to continue on my path in real estate development and achieve my goals of success. The set of skills he taught me are very unique and can’t be compared to anything else in our world.

Paul M.

Limbe, Cameroon

I left Cameroon in 1982 to attend college in Chicago, Illinois. I’m currently a U.S. Citizen living in Staten Island, New York.

What I most love about Cameroon are the warmth of the people, the rich and diverse cultures, the organic and variety of foods, the climate, one of the few countries with black (volcanic) and white sand beaches, varied natural landscape and a canvas for a budding real estate developer.

ᅠI wish to become a Real Estate Developer because becoming a real estate developer represents seeking out a blank canvas (whether a lot, warehouse, old building) for me to unleash my creativity.ᅠ It is a very attractive second career for me.ᅠ After over 20 years in human resources, I look forward to transcending traditional ideas and creating livable/functional unique spaces.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Mentoring Real Estate Development Certification Course because the program is all-inclusive with Richard Michael Abraham, a knowledge master as my advisor.ᅠ It feels like an apprenticeship jammed with information beyond a 2-year masters program.ᅠ I reviewed a lot of other programs and REDI’s Course/Program is the most comprehensive.

Maputo, Mozambique

I was born in the United States but I am now developing real estate in Pemba, Mozambique.

What I most love about Mozambique are the people.  Mozambique is a poor country but the people are warm, friendly and enjoy life.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer because it allows me to pursue an entrepreneurial career.  I have always had entrepreneurial aspirations, so real estate development is the perfect profession for me since I gain the opportunity to combine my creative side with hard business skills to create a work of art that meets specific market needs and demands.  It is also important to me to see that the outcomes of my work are creating a positive economic impact on the community.  Being the developer behind these positive economic impacts fulfills me.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Mentoring Real Estate Development Certification Course because I wanted to learn a proven successful method to developing real estate that I can use throughout my career. I wanted to learn and understand the process of Market Analysis, Financial Feasibility and Structuring Joint Ventures. The REDI Foundation, with the hands on approach and personal coaching provided by Richard Michael Abraham is helping me tremendously to put together a doable, in demand and feasible real estate development in Pemba Mozambique.

Brian S.

San Juan, Puerto rico

San Juan, Puerto Rico: I was born in California and moved to Puerto Rico, my mother's native country, as a young child. I grew up in Puerto Rico and 3 years ago moved to the state of Tennessee.

What I most love about Puerto Rico apart from the beautiful beaches and the climate is the Latin culture wined with a North American drive.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer because I enjoy all aspects of Real Estate and have always envisioned myself developing Real Estate to its highest potential.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Mentoring Real Estate Development Certification Course because REDI has a worldwide reputation for being very a effective Course, it’s the knowledge with the experience together in a six month format. That is a plus since I wanted to learn fast but also be able to really put it all to work.

Denise G.

Halifax, canada

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada: I was born and raised in Canada.

What I most love about Canada is its beauty, rugged Country with friendly people and great opportunities to develop apartment buildings.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer and specialize in developing apartment buildings that I can own and hold onto long term.  I’m just graduating REDI’s Course and I’m already developing a $12,000,000 apartment complex.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Mentoring Real Estate Development Certification Course because REDI’s Course is hands-on, practical and culminated in my actual $12,000,000 development as opposed to merely theory or University classroom graduate programs. I’ve had the privilege of getting an MBA from one of the top business schools out there, consulting Fortune 500 companies, and having lunch with Warren Buffett. But I have to admit with Mr. Abraham as my mentor, I have obtained the most practical and invaluable hands-on education than I’ve ever received in my life.

Mark B.


China: I was born in the city of Hong Kong.

What I most love about China is the food, city life and the best mix of east and west culture.

Agnes L.

new delhi, india

What I most love about India is the rich and varied culture and the way, despite vast cultural differences, India as a nation integrates its entire people. India’s taste of elegance-the way it makes gaudy look sophisticated, the way it makes modernity meet tradition. I love India’s attitude of reaching for the highest possible standards in any field while still holding onto its traditions.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer because I have seen the Real-Estate industry emerge as one of the most successful and rewarding industries in India. Real Estate gives you the opportunity to be a planner, a visionary, a contractor, a designer, and an artist and basically everything other business people may otherwise miss out on. My father is a developer and so is my grandfather. They work in their traditional, impulsively.  My main impetus to become a developer is to organize the business and work in an entirely planned and foolproof manner.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Real Estate Development Coaching & Certification Course because during my online research I could see the Course was tailor-made for me, its presentation of in the trenches knowledge of planning and bringing about a flourishing development is commendable. This Course makes all the other theoretical courses seem futile to even think about if you really want to develop real estate.

Nan G.

swindon, england

England: I reside in Swindon with my family and travel to London frequently..

What I most love about England is the robust activities of London, the buzz, restaurants and wealth of real estate development opportunities.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer because as someone with no capital or experience looking to enter the real estate development business, I was acutely aware that in order to attract investors and property owners into Joint Ventures, I needed to learn how to put together the Market Research/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study and bring my own unique and additional value to the process.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Real Estate Development Coaching & Certification Course because this really is the greatest and most unique Course in the world. I would add that this is the only program of any type where I’m getting true value for my tuition (far more than my MBA There is ‘nothing else’ out there currently to genuinely help novice developers get the skills needed to make a start in this business.

Paul M.

Nishinomiya, japan

What I most love about Japan is our traditional culture and beautiful and detailed craftsmanship, art, temples, traditional dress (kimono), kabuki, and food.

I wish to become a Real Estate Developer because Real Estate has always been my passion since my childhood and because I like the creative process and involvement from start to finish. I know that it will not be an easy path but the reward will be amazing not only in terms of profit but also emotionally. I’ve always liked the feeling of accomplishing something significant and because I love it, it does not feel like “work” to me, and not a lot of people can say that about their jobs.

I chose The REDI Foundation’s 6-Month Real Estate Development Coaching & Certification Course because I like the fact that it’s not a “text-book” approach, but the Course is very uniquely designed with substantial weekly assignments and a personal mentoring relationship with Mr. Abraham. What attracts me the most is that during the Course, I could actually have my own Joint Venture Development packaged. Where else could you get this kind of education?

I love the unbeatable lifestyle in South Africa. I love our outdoors culture. I love our rich, growing and vibrant democracy and the opportunities to create wealth. I want to master the cutting edge of knowledge from the United States in real estate development in The REDI Foundation’s program. Armed with it, I can rise to the top of the development game in South Africa.

Property development is the natural progression for me. I am currently a full time real estate investor and through I have experienced the potential real estate has for wealth creation, the next step demands I harness this potential fully and become a real estate developer.

I was born in LOME, TOGO (West Africa).

What I love about Canada is that it is rich in land and home to a diverse population. Toronto is a real estate developers dream and ranked as one of the best cities in the world.

Growing up In Toronto I have seen the city’s skyline change drastically in the last 15 years and I am very passionate to be part of this transformation. Real estate development is the only way for me to secure my future and be independent.

I was born in Beirut, Lebanon but I now live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

What I love most about Lebanon is the warm hospitality of the Lebanese people, the rich history and cultural mix, the exquisite cuisine, and the beautiful landscapes.

I have always been passionate about becoming a successful real estate developer. Apart from the monetary reward, it allows me to utilize my creativity, intuition, and knowledge in transforming a concept into a reality while adding value to the community and achieving true financial freedom.

Samer C.


South Africa is an extremely beautiful place.  I love the diversity and the different cultures. I also love the World Cup winning sports teams that we have.

Property has always been my passion. My background in investment analysis and appraisal has allowed me to hone in and fine-tune my skills, which promotes my passion for real estate development. Watching something being built from nothing - I truly find inspiring. For me, my passion is summed up in a few words - it’s about building a legacy; it’s about leaving a legacy.

In South Africa, there are some well acclaimed universities that offer highly recognized qualifications but they all offer very theoretical real estate studies. No courses offered a practical and experience based program, whereas the REDI Foundation Course is completely practical. The true practical nature of REDI’s course has helped me tremendously. The most exciting part of this course is the chance to be personally advised and guided by Richard Michael Abraham.  It is very rare in life that someone gets a chance to be mentored by a world-renowned and highly respected developer. It has been an absolute privilege.

Scott M.


What I love most about my Country, Canada, is the fact that it's a free Country where an individual can become as successful as they choose to be, depending on how hard they work. The opportunities are endless.

I've always had an interest in real estate investing, which I believe lead me to the development field. Besides the monetary reward, which is a big factor, I enjoy the construction process and having the opportunity to leave a positive mark on a community through my developments.

The reason I chose REDI's Course is because it cuts right to the chase and gets down to the nuts and bolts of the development process. I like the fact that Richard Michael Abraham provides you with the step by step practices it takes to line up your first joint venture development and he eliminates all the fluff. I enjoy the one-one-one mentoring and back and fourth emails between Mr. Abraham and myself because he helps and mentors me and holds me accountable for the amount of work I am completing. I am really learning the entire development process and business from beginning to end and quickly mastering all the skills it takes to make my successful real estate development career a reality.

Cailan K.


What I love about Dubai is that it has sunshine almost all year long. There is also a sense of luxury in the living and you feel that when you see the luxurious cars, well-designed buildings, malls, hotels and roads. What makes it special, compared to other cosmopolitan areas, is that it has a super friendly, safe and relaxing environment.

I love the idea of creating sustainable structures that can be long lasting and beneficial for individuals and communities in general, while achieving financial freedom for my family and me.

I considered doing Masters in Real Estate. I looked at several Universities curriculum to see if I could get some practical knowledge but found no luck. I chose the REDI Foundation Development Program because it provided practical training, which was exactly what I was looking for. The REDI Program offers so much wealth of knowledge that could never be achieved in any Real Estate Master's program.

Sarah N.


Canada: is a BIG country with so many people from different walks of life.  I am proud that my country is filled with rich diversity. Like a melting pot of cultures all living together in harmony.  It is a resourceful country with spectacular natural view.

Being a real estate is like being an orchestra conductor in real estate development.  It will be a great sense of achievement to lead and settle and put different component together to present people with fine artistry. And being able to envision something that someone else may not. Seeing your vision brought to full fruition. Being rewarded for all your hard work.

I chose the REDI Program because there are many successful student success stories with Richard Michael Abraham. I believe in a successful and enlightening developer/mentor like Mr. Abraham. It is not like some big theory class environment. I have a private “real” developer/mentor.

David C.


I love the history, the music and the warmth of India.

I am an entrepreneur and have decided to focus on real estate development as a vehicle for financial independence. I am also a creator of music and art and real estate development involves a lot of creativity.

The reason I chose I chose REDI C-RED Certification is because it had excellent reviews online. I was also intrigued by being able to develop skills and create and put together my own project within a 6-month period. And, I loved the development work being done by the current students of The REDI Foundation.
