    I can't comment on the training. But even experienced residential investors need to do their homework before moving into the commercial space. Had a client come to me the other day, keep in mind she has a $3m resi portfolio, she wanted pre-approval for a 90% lend over 25 years on a shop front..... (the 25 years is actually possible)

    I've watched one of his webinars and read a bit of his work - he has an interesting perspective. Didn't say anything which warranted concern/incorrect information.

    I agree. It was suggested to me to look at commercial in the future for cashflow and returns. I am finding commercial very difficult to understand. It's a whole different ball game.

    Any more feedback on Jimmy?
    I listened to his webinar about a week ago, although previously watched some of his YouTube stuff.
    We all know webinars are just a big build up sales pitch, but I don't see any other structured course specific to commercial property going around.
    For 4k, it's pretty negligible if buying a multi mil commercial property.
    Are there any better alternatives for one learn the commercial investing game with no experience?

    Assuming he is legit with good results then I would go for it. Failing that, I would find someone on here (or elsewhere) with real results and pay for their time to have a 1:1 with and discuss in detail. Just what I would do. I strongly believe the best way to do something is learning from 'the best' or at least from someone with a good track record.
