It was a very good opportunity for attendees and the speakers to participate in REMI’s Owner Developer program ODP. It is a great program in terms of knowledge sharing and it’s very important to understand the various stakeholders at play and the way the industry functions. REMI is playing a very important role in bringing all the real estate stake holders together and the way the program has been organized is a great opportunity to learn and grow within the real estate industry.

Sandeep Dave

Partner – Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas

When I walked into REMI’s ODP session room I had no clue what the expectation was of the students were, but when I overheard their conversation of their experience at the ODP program I realized that this is such a great opportunity for learning. So many promoters and business leaders from the real estate sector in one room created such a great platform for learning and knowledge sharing. The experience was unbelievable and it’s a great feeling that I’ll carry along.

I met a very diverse group of people at ODP. The good thing about the program is the way the program has been structured, it has a combination of regulatory input followed with policies and then actual implementation of the learning in the organization. I’m sure each of the attendees will go back with something that they can implement.

One of the biggest USP’s of the ODP program is the application of learning that can be implemented on day to day business. We met a lot of people from the sector which created a great networking platform. I highly recommend REMI to those who are looking to start a career in the Real Estate Sector.
