Apartment University has been the culmination of Derek Lobo's life-long passion for the apartment industry. Over his 35+ years dedicated to working with developers and industry experts, a vast amount of amortized knowledge has been assembled - in a variety of formats, relationships, and collaborations.
The vision for this online learning portal was to place all of this knowledge, wisdom, relationships, collaborations, industry experts, and tools - all in one digital platform to allow apartment developers to access it when they needed it, regardless of where they were in the timeline of their project. But it didn't stop there, Derek wanted to deliver a complete and comprehensive experience for apartment developers... So began the addition of including all of what he and his team had to offer - webinars, events, publications, books, private training, and coaching.
After two years of development, Apartment University was launched in June 2022. Many of Derek's closest relationships observed the journey first-hand - reviewing the vision, content, and providing industry insight. Derek now had the platform to help developers become APARTMENT SCIENTISTS!
Apartment University is now ready for you, the new or first-time developer, or perhaps you're pivoting from another asset class, and yes, even seasoned veterans have much to gain by accessing this development resource (several have shared that Apartment University is the answer for their staff onboarding challenges!).
