Big 4 Exit Ops - REPE Shops

Hey all, 

First post on here so I hope I'm doing this right. I'm a rising senior interning at a Big 4 right now on their transaction real estate team, and although I love the people I'm not sure the company culture fits my personality well. 

I'm going to be doing some MBB / banking full time recruiting, and eventually want to transition into REPE. I'm graduating May 2022 from a well-respected real estate program with a data science certificate so I have a pretty robust technical skillset. Would love to hear people's thoughts on top REPE firms in NYC and where it makes sense for me to recruit if that is my end goal.

Thanks in advance for any input.

To be completely honest, I feel like I should but I don't really know where to start. This is exactly why I made this post though - people on here know a lot more than me and questions like yours can help get me pointed in the right direction.

REIB->REPE is a pretty heavily trodden path. Haven't seen too many go MBB->REPE but that may be more a personality/goals difference than anything else.

You could also skip IB/MBB and shoot straight for REPE.
