Recent students receiving The REDI Foundation Award of Distinction:
"Since graduating the Real Estate Development Course of Richard Michael Abraham, and working as a Joint Venture Real Estate Developer part time, I am developing a parcel of land outside of Denver. As taught, I did not need to invest any of my own capital. I raised $450,000 from a Joint Venture investor to purchase the land. Using the skills taught with the private Mentoring of Richard Michael Abraham, I negotiated a Joint Venture hotel development with Wyndham. Financing and Construction is completed. The total value of this Wyndham project is $5,600,000 and I own 50%. And my remaining land is now valued at $2,000,000.
The REDI Foundation is helping me by teaching me a proven successful method to developing real estate that I can use throughout my career. In the past I had ideas for potential real estate developments, however, I did not understand the process of Market Analysis, Financial Feasibility and Joint Venture Structuring taught by The REDI foundation. The hands on approach and personal mentoring provided by Richard Michael Abraham are helping me tremendously to put together a real, doable, in demand and feasible real estate development.
The printed Course materials are helpful because the material is broken down into a step-by-step process for developing real estate. By working through the material I am learning the process by creating and developing my own real estate development.
Richard Michael Abraham provides expert coaching every step of the way. The printed Course material, assignments, exams and coaching all work together. Richard Michael Abraham reviews your work and provides significant input. This advisory is vital.
The greatest benefit to this Course is the personal and private mentorship provided by Richard Michael Abraham. Mr. Abraham or ‘Richie’ as his students call him, really becomes a part of your development team - an expert who guides you through the entire process of Real Estate Development. He is very quick to respond and gives 100% effort to helping his students succeed in putting together a doable, in demand and feasible real estate development. I feel blessed to have this opportunity and value the coaching provided above all aspects of the Course.
I have had the opportunity to talk with bright individuals who have had ideas for real estate developments but haven’t progressed passed the “idea” stage. They haven’t progressed past this day dreaming stage because they lack The REDI Foundation’s comprehensive and proven method. The REDI foundation’s comprehensive mentoring Course provides the expertise needed to be able to proceed and take action. The mentoring I’m receiving in the course is equivalent to having an expert developer as a business partner. This Course has been vital for me to move from the day dreaming stage to actual execution.
As part of his coaching, Mr. Abraham leads, inspires and motivates. Not only does he review your work and provide input but he also motivates you by helping you see the success that awaits you if you put in the hard work needed to be successful. Mr. Abraham provides you with examples of previous student successes, thoughts of the day that inspire, and he gives of himself - a genuine desire to see his students succeed. If you work hard and dedicate yourself to this Course then Mr. Abraham will help you every step of the way. It is like I said earlier, having Mr. Abraham as a mentor is like having an expert developer as your business partner who will lead, guide, mentor and motivate you through the process.
I think to find the real value of the Course you need to find how much you would pay for an experienced real estate developer executing a real estate development with you. Imagine the cost of that vs. The REDI Foundation’s nominal tuition. I could never afford to hire an experienced developer. But the Course mentoring essentially provides this expert developer – Richard Michael Abraham.
When you think about the value you are receiving in this Course for the nominal amount of the tuition cost, it is incredible. Without this Course I would not have an in demand and feasible real estate development with a 20% equity position. I consider Mr. Abraham a partner in my development that I am working on, so as a partner the value this Course has provided me is worth at least 50% of my equity stake in my development. This Course teaches you the nuts and bolts of real estate development and Mr. Abraham helps you every step of the way to create your own real estate development that can change your life. Because of the great opportunity I’ve been given through this Course, there’s no way I can put a monetary figure on the value I’ve received.
The private mentoring received from Mr. Abraham through email correspondence is superior to conventional online classes and webinars because you receive individual attention and tailored guidance for your unique real estate development. Individual and private coaching is needed. Other classes and webinars teach theory. The REDI Foundation’s Course with personal mentorship teaches through doing and without personal mentorship from Mr. Abraham that would not be possible. I think you can compare results to prove that private mentoring is more effective than online classes with no advisory. At the end of the REDI course I will not only have certified expertise as a Real Estate Developer but I will also have an in demand and feasible real estate development project. At the end of any other online class I would have theoretical knowledge only. If you want to physically execute a real estate development as opposed to just learning the theory, then I recommend The REDI Foundation Course."

“We plan to proceed with Urban Heights. Urban Heights is a small niche development that is conveniently located just one mile northwest from downtown Fort Lauderdale. The development will consist of two bedroom and three bedroom apartments with features and amenities that are typically found in newer, larger scale apartment developments. The goal is to target young urban professionals who want to work, live, and play close to home.
Enrolling into the 6-month REDI program was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Initially I could not afford to enroll but then I thought about it and began to realize that I could not afford not to enroll in the program.
In the past I had tried every textbook approach I could find to teach me the skills of real estate development but none of these approaches gave me a practical no-nonsense approach to development like you learn from the REDI Foundation. The program has shown me the proper way to analyze development trends through color-coded maps and to look for value generators that create complimentary developments and then write a market and feasibility study to prove the demand of your development. In the past I would ride around looking for vacant lots or buildings for sale then I thought about what I wanted to build. Now I ride around and look for value generators that demand a particular complimentary development. It’s the scientific way to find hidden development gems.
Currently, I am a business owner. Throughout the 6-month program, I saw firsthand the life lessons Mr. Abraham tried to emphasize play out in my own life. Mr. Abraham taught us that when you fall down in life no one is going to come to your rescue. And when you choose a business partner or investor, you really have to vet them and put them through the Meat Grinder to test their sincerity and underlying interest. Now that I know and understand these concepts, I can make smarter decisions that will lead to a much better outcome in my business endeavors.
The printed materials were more like interactive workbooks of practical applications. They were very easy to read and follow and now serve as reference tools and guide whenever I need to refer back to a particular concept, thought, or financial feasibility problems.
The coaching has been the best attribute of the course. Every week there was a new concept being taught, and when I turned in my assignments Mr. Abraham did not hold back but gave me constructive criticism to get me to perform at a higher level. The way the assignments and exams were structured, concepts, definitions, and thoughts always stayed fresh in your mind and forces you to retain information in your memory.
Mr. Abraham goes out of his way to provide students with examples from his own past experiences and examples of successful past student projects. Seeing these examples and knowing in the back of your mind that someone just like yourself has successfully completed this course and produced or is pursuing a potential real estate development is by far the best motivation boost to keep you working hard to do your very best work.
Before taking this 6-month Course, I had a distorted view about the economy. I thought if interest rates were low, then it was time to buy. Mr. Abraham on the other hand taught me to delve into the economy indicators and evaluate what's going on globally and nationally in contrast to what's happening locally. Once I began doing this, I quickly realized that rates can be low and the stock market could be thriving but on Main street unemployment can be at an all-time high and real estate could be in a slump. So, now I read all of the economic signs.
Being personally Mentored by Mr. Abraham is like having unlimited access (for a six month period) to one of the brightest and successful minds in the real estate development industry. I would compare the mentorship I've received to being taught how to play the game of basketball by one of the greatest coaches to ever play and coach the game.
There were times during this six-month program that I felt I would give up. But every time I experienced a hardship or difficult situation, Mr. Abraham always sent me some words of encouragement or a "thought for the day" that always seem to pull me through my situation. There were times where the subject matter was a little difficult for me to grasp but Mr. Abraham would always provide me with explanations and/or examples from other students who were working on similar problem; basically showing me that if he or she could do it so could I. Every time Mr. Abraham provided me with this type of support, I always managed to break though and accomplish a particular task that once felt insurmountable. Mr Abraham made me realize that though this course I had the power to change my life forever.
The value I received from this 6-month course cannot be quantified; because this course has been invaluable. I am forever indebted to Mr. Abraham and the REDI Foundation for accepting me into this program and giving me the opportunity of a lifetime.
I would say to others who may be contemplating on enrolling into the REDI Foundation 6-month real estate development program to take the leap and come with your heart and mind opened to receive new concepts, thoughts, and ideas on real estate development because when you do you, you will be on the road to becoming a new and successful intuitive real estate developer and taking complete control over your life by putting together real joint ventures.
It's very rare to find someone that is willing to share their secrets of success for the sole purpose of helping you improve your life. One thousand times "thank you" to Richard Michael Abraham would be too few....”

"16 months ago, I earned my C-RED Certification. Richard Michael Abraham instructed and mentored me to meet with landowners. One of the landowners was so impressed with my Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study that I had completed for my Course project agreed to put his $2,500,000 parcel of land into the Joint Venture and to give me a 46% equity ownership participation in the development if I could put it together. Applying the skills learned in the Course, I negotiated a subordination of the land to a $12,000,000 lender construction credit line. Then, I was able to secure $2,000,000 in private investor equity capital. As taught in The REDI Program, I took the project through all planning board approvals for a 170-unit residential community. I then pre-sold the first phase and now I have started construction. I had no prior real estate development experience before enrolling in The REDI Foundation’s Course/Program. Now, I am involved in over $45,000,000 in four development projects with an average of 30% joint venture ownership equity.
The REDI Foundation is the most practical, tried and tested real estate development course. The course has the perfect balance between assignments, fieldwork, mentoring, exams, real stories from a successful developer, and mastering the mindset you need to succeed. After going through the course, I now possess the knowledge and the confidence to get investor and landowner joint venture partners and create a very successful real estate development firm. By far, the most important part of the course is the one-on-one, private coaching. Mr. Abraham’s mentoring, input and suggestions are invaluable, and really give you re-assurance that you are on the right path. I get very excited by all the email mentoring responses Mr. Abraham gives me, as well as his frequent articles and thoughts of the day.
All I did was exactly what Mr. Abraham taught me. I couldn't have imagined earning this much money before I took 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. And by mastering Mr. Abraham’s negotiating skills, I am saving 20%-30% on construction bids. Having someone like Mr. Abraham mentor you privately is something invaluable, that you cannot find anywhere else. 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. Mr. Abraham is very demanding, which is exactly what you need when you want to rise in such a competitive field as real estate development.
Before taking the REDI Course, I felt people didn't respect me in the real estate field. I am now treated with like and respect when talking about real estate development. Mr. Abraham's all business approach and philosophy has turned me into a true expert in the real estate development field. I now am completely convinced that I will be able to package one development after another while always keeping my ethical values as Mr. Abraham teaches. If you value experience, success, practical knowledge, and private Mentoring, you will instantly realize the value of this course. The tuition price of the course, in my opinion, is a very small fraction of the value you receive, and this is by far the best course I have ever taken in any field in my entire life. I truly recommend this Course to anyone that is seriously thinking of developing land or real estate or wants to become a joint venture developer working with investor capital. You will be forced to act, and at the end of the course you will have a complete real estate project to develop. You will also have the knowledge to make this a business, and control and secure the rest of your future. The REDI Foundation and Richard Michael Abraham are giving me the confidence not only to develop any property, but also to get investor`s capital and develop as a joint venture partner."

““I’ve identified a 67-acre tract for residential development for $125,000-$350,000 priced homes. I completed the first development section of 64 single family lots in this project in Conroe, Texas. I paid off the development loan of $2.6 Million. There remains twenty acres for the final section with the builder contract to deliver 58 lots. This is a $12,000,000 project.
I'm currently looking at a 34-acre tract in Montgomery, Texas. I'm performing market research the apartment proforma and investor package as taught. I've been in touch with developers who have an interest in tracts for assisted living and retail uses as a complement to multi-family.
Through the REDI Course, I have gained invaluable knowledge and expertise to identify market demand, perform research and data collection, develop cash flow feasibility models, package a project, and obtain investor equity financing.
These processes are often taught in industry trade organizations and universities, yet the methodology taught within the REDI course, instead of theories within a classroom, I am in the field conducting meetings, driving my market, gathering data; which all leads to an actual course project; and, ultimately income. The hands-on approach with mentoring by a world-class developer, Richard Michael Abraham, provides a level of education unlike any other program. It is a cut well above ULI or CCIM courses I’ve taken.
The coursework takes the student through progressive assignments to learn the real estate development process; gain deeper insight into themselves, their strengths & weaknesses. Further, the unique tools to uncover market demand provide opportunities for hidden gem development. These Course Assignments have opened my vision so that I see vacant tracts, surrounding uses, traffic, current developments, news reports and other factors in a new light on a daily basis.
The sections on financial feasibility modeling have been presented in a clear and concise manner to teach the calculation of discounted cash flow, internal rate of return and other valuable investment metrics. The data gathering and preparation of the Market/Feasibility/Joint Venture Study to generate interest of investors, is a key element to success. The quality of the materials and the student output is of the highest standard, and the mentoring by Mr. Abraham brings all of these factors together.
The Course materials are nearly presented as a business memoir of Mr. Abraham’s vast experience. The assignments are crafted to instill real estate development concepts, a professional business approach and to build upon these layers with expert knowledge. The blend of fieldwork and written assignments are designed to synthesize the real estate development process and create a skilled entrepreneur.
As students complete and submit assignments, Mr. Abraham quickly and thoroughly reviews the material and mentors students individually, one-on-one through his detailed responses. He is relentless in his coaching to guide students to a feasible, in demand and doable project. The training to position the project in the Feasibility Study and skills learned to market to investors allows me to take a path of creativity and entrepreneurship. As a course graduate, I have the tools and expertise to assemble a development and prove value to earn an equity position.
Mr. Abraham has been available by email correspondence day and night to provide direction, input and guidance on course assignments and the course development project. He openly shares successes and failures from his life experience that have been the foundation for his achievement. This human trait enables him to build trust with students and push them to succeed. His mentoring flows from real estate development to general business. As he shares anecdotes, his humility and compassion for others outside of his business is clear and present.
The experience to be mentored by Mr. Abraham has been a highlight in my career. For nearly thirty years, I’ve worked 60-70 hours per week in commercial and corporate real estate and made numerous sacrifices of personal and family time. Through the course, I’ve gained experience and credentials that will allow success and financial freedom past all expectation.
The experience to study the course materials, complete assignments and receive mentoring from Mr. Abraham has changed the direction of my future.
I’ve considered other industry trade designations and masters’ level real estate programs that provide theory-based learning. The REDI Foundation was the right approach for me as a practical training program to learn development skills, receive mentoring in real estate development and life lessons, and hands-on training. As a result of the six-month program, I will have an actual real estate development almost complete. The REDI coursework and mentoring by an experienced developer, Richard Michael Abraham, is the best approach, bar none.
As a highly successful developer, Mr. Abraham has a wealth of knowledge and demands top results from his students. His feedback is direct. His mentoring is compassionate. Mr. Abraham has poured his knowledge, wisdom and heart into the course materials and mentoring of apprentices. He treats his students as if they are family and expresses care and concern from a business and real world standpoint.
The REDI Foundation course is a challenging program. As any chief executive, Mr. Abraham pushes himself and those around him for ultimate success. His frequent guidance and encouragement have often pressed me to dig deeper to complete materials. In addition to real estate development, the course enables students to build and strengthen skills in business, communication, marketing and human interaction.
Mr. Abraham’s development and personal style remind me of the adage, “Never, never, never give up.” (Paraphrased Winston Churchill.) It’s truly challenging to put into words the impact that the REDI Course has made on my future.
Mr. Abraham shares his life experience and wisdom with students. He is very clear that we must rely upon ourselves, we must research and verify the accuracy of our work product, select partners carefully, be honest and truthful with partners and investors, and not to expect an easy path. His expectation of the work product is of the highest quality, which will ultimately benefit the student.
A leader will roll up his sleeves, get down in the trenches and show one how it’s done. By real life examples disclosed within the course and skilled mentoring, I feel almost as if I have absorbed Mr. Abraham’s wisdom. The coursework is challenging and Mr. Abraham pushes students, but it seems as if a business as well as personal transformation has occurred within me.
I feel as if I operate at a higher level in business meetings, that I can quickly assess various options and reach a swift informed decision. In business activities, I seem to possess a new quiet confidence as I progress through the various stages of a real estate development.
Once Mr. Abraham ends his teaching and mentoring, there will be a great void for the individual who desires to create new infrastructure and build skills and expertise that lead to success as a real estate developer.
These development concepts and business knowledge are not taught in universities. Based on geographic location and access to capital, real estate development and ownership can often be an exclusive club. Mr. Abraham has made this learning experience available to people of all backgrounds Worldwide. The tuition cost for the program is a fraction of the expense of an advanced degree. My gratitude for inclusion in REDI’s 6-Month Program is beyond description.”

“I am planning to develop a regional Towne Center, and planning to develop the five land sites under my control for five national firms. The REDI Foundation penned up a whole new world of Commercial RE development opportunity for me. I’ve always dreamed about this opportunity but didn’t know where or how to start. The 800-pages of printed Course Materials are amazing. I’m self-taught mostly through autobiographies of the most successful people in their fields. Richie’s Mentoring Course is like a communicative, breathing and living autobiography except the author is not only still alive, but brings you through his life’s experiences and you actually communicate about those experiences with him. You are learning from and engaging with a legacy in real time. The REDI Course materials will NEVER find their way onto my office bookshelves, they are a lifetime worth of work that needs to be viewed daily, like a bible, if you are sincere about your future or faith. Richard Michael Abraham immerses himself in your assignments and goes into great detail to insure you understand what’s at hand if your work was not correct or perfect. His personal Mentoring and nuts and bolts knowledge cannot be found in any theory Master’s Degree Program because it’s real life with real life working experiences that not only touch on the nuts and bolts, but the human and emotional side of the business, which you can’t or won’t find in any formal education no matter what level. Being personally and privately Mentored by Richard Michael Abraham is like having your father came back from the dead 37 years later and finally takes you under his wings. For anyone who wants to develop their real estate but never knew about a Course like REDI’s program that provides “real’ project based and hands on instruction and “real” Mentoring from a “real” developer, you have only two choices outside of this REDI Course. You either learn it through some form of formal education, that in the real world just does not exist or jump in with both feet to gamble on your future endeavors, but with either method you’re gambling. REDI’s course takes all the gambling out of the equation. Sure, there’s always risk, but Richie’s teachings calculate that risk down to a point that if followed properly, guarantees your success. Further, Mr. Abraham leads you and motivates you. He pushes you but he also is heavy on the encouragement aspect to keep you believing that “You Can Do This”. The value of REDI’s Course is priceless. Mr. Abraham volunteers his time with low, nominal tuition vs. all the other University theory courses and graduate programs costing $40,000-$87,000 for professor theory based lectures. Irrespective of the price of this course, or any other course, this course is priceless, bar none, and thanks to Mr. Abraham essentially volunteering his time value, just happens to be priced at a level that allows all student socio economic levels the same opportunity to fulfill their greatness. Richie never gives up on you. It’s everything Richie can do not to give up on me, I know this because I give him plenty of opportunities to do so, my heads harder but I still insist that Richie always came through for me and never did or wanted to give up on me. Mr. Abraham helped me understand how the real life and world really works (wisdom) and how to make important business decisions. I believe if you’re green your growing, if you’re ripe, you rot. At 54 years, old, I have the other half of my life to continue to learn every day. Richie’s wisdom has helped me validate my strengths, and more importantly, my weaknesses, and believing that a man’s greatest strength knows his weaknesses, you can’t put a value on what Richie brings to the table here, for me at least. The real-life game of being a developer is not something you just jump into, so having this incredible amount of new occupational knowledge is a once in a life time opportunity, so much so I’m unable to put my gratitude for Richie into words. In terms of changing my life, aside from the obvious in giving me a new lease on life, to be completely honest, Richie’s triggered a lot of PTSD of my relationship with my late father. I’m much older now and have a greater perspective about my father as relates to these emotional triggers, but, I’m finding closure to wounds I didn’t know I had and was still harboring inside of me, so I’ve decided to embraced any pain in this regard and am becoming very grateful for it. I know these comments are outside of the course, but the question was, how has Richie changed my life? He has taught me everything I need to know and has changed my life at the same time. My only hope is that all Richie’s students will do what I intend on doing, which is to pass along this knowledge for those that are deserving, and if all Richie’s students do this over their careers across the world, it will keep Richie’s lifetime work and his legacy in play in perpetuity. For me, it’s my personal way of paying Richie back.”

"My course project is doable, feasible and in demand. It is a 17-unit apartment development spread over three buildings, three levels, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, double internal access garaging, Stunning views over the city with sun drenched orientation to the North East. Superb location. Projected development costs $8.9 million. Investor IRR 89.61% inflation adjusted. Financing structure 75% total development cost construction loan and 25% equity investor. At the time of writing three major banks have indicated they will fund the 75% construction loan. I couldn’t have done any of it without the private, one-on-one mentoring with Richard Michael Abraham.
In my case, the course materials talk to me. It is as if Mr. Abraham is sitting beside me explaining every detail. I had looked worldwide for the best real estate development program and never expected to find Mr. Abraham and the REDI Foundation let alone be privately mentored. I knew that what Mr. Abraham was about to teach me would change my life forever.
Learning leads to knowledge; experience leads to wisdom. Mr. Abraham delivers the best student learning experience possible. Mr. Abraham, or Richie as his students call him, fuses decades of “real world” real estate development knowledge, experience and wisdom into an active, action learning methodology.
The “real world” in which we live is full of erroneous and fictitious information and fraudulent intent. Sadly, the ethical business person is an exception in today's business environment. Richie gives clarity as to the interplay between economic, political, legislative policy and the effects of changing GDP. By gaining awareness of the built in system of how the World works through his teachings, I can navigate the mire more accurately.
To be personally mentored by Richie is a once in a lifetime opportunity that only a few people worldwide get the privilege to experience. I am humbled for placement into The REDI Foundation’s Mentoring – Certification program. Bring enthusiasm and sincerity, work hard on all assignments and exams, and he will change your life. That is what Mr. Abraham has done for me.
I view the REDI Foundation and Mr. Abraham’s real estate development certification (C-RED) and private mentoring program as the best real estate development program in the world. Please remember “good grades are just the beginning” they guarantee nothing. I would not have attained the results I have without Mr. Abraham’s extraordinary teaching and mentoring.
They say the measure of a true entrepreneur is that if they lose everything they rebuild. I lost everything. In 2014, I ran directly into what Mr. Abraham would describe as “Random Irony” or “what can go wrong will go wrong.” Because of being too trusting I lost every cent I had and was $19,863 in the red. I had no money, no job and no car. I was living in a back-packer’s hostel with my iPhone and laptop.
Mr. Abraham leads with clarity, honesty and straightforward, candid response. Mr. Abraham inspires me for all that he is and all that he gives to the world in this his final chapter of life.
I view my time with Mr. Abraham and the REDI Foundation as an investment, not a cost. I needed to understand how to put together, professionally package and present joint venture developments in a way that has investors jumping at me. No academic development program on earth delivers what, Mr. Abraham has delivered to me as he promised he would.
In respect of the Mr. Abraham’s and the REDI Foundation’s tuition fee versus an academic Masters program. I am distinctly qualified to answer this question, but you do the math. I hold an MBA (Distinction) from my countries top business school, graduated from memory 4th in my year of 120 students with the equivalent of a 3.92GPA. My business school holds all of the accreditations of the top North American Ivy League business schools. i.e., Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT…etc While, they are two very different programs; I view my MBA as both complimentary and foundational to what I am about to complete with Mr Abraham and the REDI Foundation. Ask yourself; which program will change your life? Half of $3,282,126 is $1,641,063, and I haven’t mentioned the two other developments I am working on. Mr. Abraham and the REDI Foundation are the hands down winners. There isn’t enough room on the REDI Website to list all the benefits of the REDI program. Mr. Abraham’s certification and mentoring program is unique worldwide. It is the world’s top real estate development program for many reasons. If you want to change your life, take control of your future it is the only program to consider. Believe me, I looked at all the programs, and as you now know, it took me a couple of years to get in the position to apply.
Mr. Abraham teaches his students to be “soulful warriors that never let go of the string.” Never let go of the string is Mr. Abraham’s term for never ever giving up.
I now have the skills to take complete control of my future and the future of my two children. I can put together developments in and from anywhere in the world with total confidence. I can structure the most comprehensive and sophisticated financial feasibility, undertake in-depth market research and market analysis reducing development and investor risk while delivering a best financial result. I am engaging with sophisticated and intelligent professionals from tier one companies and from a platform of mutual respect and competence.
I now possess a skill set that very few people in the world have. The most sophisticated and comprehensive financial feasibility expertise underpinned by the before mentioned real estate development specific market research and market analysis skills. Only 1 percent of developers worldwide possess my financial feasibility skills. I am valuable. Mr. Abraham gave these gifts to me.
The biggest myth surrounding real estate development is that you need to have a lot of money. That is not the case. It does help but trust me you can do it with no money. You need to be talented, hard working, master the development skills and carry yourself with confidence.
My final message to all prospective future students of Mr. Abraham worldwide: always be the hardest working person in the room, bring enthusiasm and sincerity, deliver honesty, principle and integrity to all that you do.
Richie changed my life, and he will change yours."

“My course project is a $15,000,000 retail center in Carlsbad, California. There are a significant number of new luxury homes in the area with no close food facilities, shops or gas stations. My project shows a 29% IRR. This retail development will be on a highly traveled road and will also be walkable from new housing developments.
I have been involved with construction and development projects since very young. When I first discovered the REDI Course I couldn’t think of anything else for a few days and knew it was something that I wanted to do. I applied and was accepted, and it has been a whirlwind of knowledge ever since. I did not know what to expect but what I received was more than I even anticipated. The REDI Course is very comprehensive and Mr. Richard Michael Abraham will push you hard. He is very fair and if you will commit the time required and do your best you can succeed, and Mr. Abraham will give you his all. The REDI course is very hands on real life experience that you would not get from a classroom scene. Nothing can take the place of experience and personal, One-Oe-One Mentoring.
Richard Michael Abraham’s personal attention with the Course material and weekly assignments gained me valuable insights to the world of development through the eyes of an actual developer, not just a professor.
I always wanted more and this REDI Course opens up a world of opportunity. Real project based hands on and focused step-by-step instruction is what you get from this C-RED Certification REDI course. I cannot say enough good things about the valuable information contained within REDI’s Course. It is evident that “Richie” really cares about his students.
The Course is challenging (as it should be) and you need to be determined to succeed and control your future. It will push you farther than you would like to go sometimes and some of the assignments will be out of your comfort zone, but I found that it is very worth it and regardless of what I think, Richie was always correct.
This Course can be for a wide range of people, from beginner aspiring developers to highly seasoned professionals. I would definitely recommend the C-RED Course.
Today, most developers will not share the trade secrets and mentor you like Richie will and the Course is easily worth ten times the tuition price. There were times when I felt I may not complete the assignments, Mr. Abraham would encourage me saying “you can do this”.
After going through the Course I am confident in my abilities to develop real estate projects successfully. In the past I was looking at real estate developments the wrong way. This course turns everything around for me and now I know the proper method to determine where, what, when and how to successfully do an in demand project from a value generator standpoint.
Thank You Very Much to The REDI Foundation and Richard Michael Abraham for doing this valuable mentoring program. There is no time like the present to take advantage of this unique opportunity. Once it is gone it will be gone forever. “
