Project managers in the Nigerian real estate construction sector are facing challenges in delivering real estate projects profitably. The purpose of this correlational study was to examine how comprehension, motivation, skills, resources, and communication can predict project success in the real estate construction sector in Nigeria. Understanding these elements was necessary for developing project management strategies aimed at optimizing profitability. The population of the study was project management practitioners in the Nigerian real estate construction sector who are facing challenges in delivering real estate construction projects profitably. The duck alignment theory served as the theoretical framework for the study. Data collection was through a survey instrument questionnaire called the Project Implementation Profile. Multiple linear regression analysis confirmed a significant relationship between each of the 5 independent variables and the dependent variable, F(5, 70) = 216.704, p = .000, R2 = .939 upholding all the alternative hypotheses. The regression model results showed that each independent variable is a significant predictor of the dependent variable, project success at p < 0.05 and C.I. = 95% criteria. Project managers may use the findings of this study to increase the profitability of the real estate construction sector, which would translate to a business expansion resulting in an increased production of houses and housing services. The implications for positive social change may include the generation of employment for skilled and unskilled workers and the multiplier effects, which support the stimulation of sustainable economic activities in the developing economy of Nigeria.
