Hello All, Long time lurker, but I've had an event at work happen and would like to hear what others would do. I work in a GSE underwriting/production role In the late fall of last year, my manager of 3 months was let go. I wasn't sure of the reason, just that my big boss asked...
Hey guys :) I'm a rising sophomore getting a bachelors of architecture degree. I'm looking to possibly go into Real Estate, particularly development and other sectors that are more on the buildy/architecty side rather than the finance side. I have a few questions: 1. What...
There have been some other threads about this, but wanted to start up a new one given the recent rate cut. Looking to buy a place around $500K, can pay all cash, but given the recent rate cut and rates <3%, should I be taking on a mortgage to capture some of that sweet sweet leverage?
Do you know of companies that have an internal capital markets team that essentially act as the in-house D/E broker? Any insight on how a role like that compares to being a D/E broker or lender at a balance sheet/CMBS/lifeco/agency lender?

Guys-- I'm starting to dig in pretty closely to a small multi-family deal in Fruitvale. I don't know the area very well, and am being sold on the location as a 15-minute BART ride from downtown SF and a going-in per door basis that definitely has some future growth wiggle room on a...

Hi Everyone - What are your thoughts on a REPE acquisitions analyst role specializing in medical office buildings OR senior housing? In your opinion, are these property types too niche? Do they have the potential to limit future exit ops to a firm specializing in traditional office or...
Hi All, I currently work as an Associate in <abbr title="Sales and Trading">S&T</abbr> Capital Markets covering Fixed Income Institutional clients on the sales side. Over the years I have gained a strong appreciation for real estate (through a little bit of capital...
Hey gang — was wondering how those who work in asset underwriting predict their exit cap rates. Obviously there’s a number of ways to go about it, but none I’ve heard of are very scientific because of the fact that such a metric is typically 5+ years out. With that said it is one of the...
I'm currently starting my career in real estate straight out of undergrad and deciding between two job offers. Not the most glorious start but considering I haven't done much prior, a start nonetheless. The first is a full time internship opportunity doing valuations for a CBRE, JLL,...

So one of the aspects which initially attracted me to real estate was the fact that prestige isn't necessarily as big of a factor when compared to <abbr title="investment banking">IB</abbr>/other finance roles. However, at the REPE I just started at it seems like...
I know its been discussed before, but does anyone have insight on real estate groups engaged on the principal side with analyst programs/structure? Either acquisitons or development and outside of the hometown hero's (crow, hillwood etc..)
Hello Everyone, I want to create or join a Whatsapp or Facebook group with members that are real estate professionals operating in New York City. I'd specifically like to talk about local real estate news, events, and meetups. Does such a group already exist or would anyone be...

I'm currently interning at a smallish (1-2 Billion AUM) REPE firm outside of the Northeast. A return offer is not out of the question, and I am highly considering accepting. The position would be at the analyst level, with responsibilities in both acquisition and asset management. My...
