Advice for aspiring real estate entrepreneur

 

I did not go to a target school nor have I had a finance internship. I went to the University of Victoria in Canada and my background is in entrepreneurship and sales. I am currently the sales manager for a painting company. I want to work for a top private equity real estate company to gain experience and then eventually do my own value-add multifamily deals and developments. 

How do you break into a top private equity real estate company like Trammell Crow Company, CBRE Global Investors or Greystar without an MBA or prior experience? Has anyone done it? 

What are the possible routes to get there?
