“The CRU course was a great way to learn about the company and its processes for acquiring properties. It gave me a better understanding of their funds and how CRC works to provide great returns for the company. The course instructors gave the students opportunities to ask specific questions that led to discussions between all participants. I would recommend this course to my co-workers and other professionals who want to learn about the company in an interactive, fun way.” Gosia Krakowiak Elashmawy – WMS Partners, LLC
