Starwood, Lone Star, Tishman, RXR, Carlyle, Walton Street, Harrison Street, Ares, Related (more of a developer)... There are a ton so not going to try to list them all. This list on PERE is probably the best place to look:

Not that this matters, but it's "Lone Star" not "Loan Star"

Prestigious* in WSO nomenclature

Be prestigious and you will be in the prestige for the prestigious hiring of the prestigious company, thus creating a virtuous cycle of prestige

I've heard great things about Baupost and Blackstone culture. Carlyle guys seem to think they are the smartest people on earth and KKR/Ares are meatgrinders.

Was on other side of a deal with Baupost, impressive as hell

Details would be awesome. Founded by one of the most influential RE minds, Poorvu, but not much can be read on their real estate operation at all
