Any good books/resources for a 1st year commercial finance associate? I keep feeling like I’m thrown in the middle of deals and I don’t understand the big picture of what’s happening. I suppose I’m looking for an overview of the life of a typical deal or something along those lines. I just want to find my footing a little faster. 3-months in I still feel pretty lost.

For any of you real estate investors, what tools or sources did you learn from when getting started. Can’t find a mentor currently so want to find some highly recommended books or videos. If focused on the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Long Island mainly) that would be even better. My hope is to buy and rent out a apartment while also owning a house and house hacking that by renting part of it out. Trying to understand all the steps, traps, and how to find if it’s a good investment.
