Currently a sophomore majoring in Finance and Econ with a concentration in real estate. I am looking into a career in CRE and would like to know the following before I start recruiting:
1) As a CRE Analyst or Associate, is there a lot of client interaction/talking or is it more like IB where you just work on models, presentations, and do due diligence all day behind a desk?
2) Is the starting pay good or decent enough for a recent college grad? I heard the big money comes after 2+ years
3) Do you have to be an outgoing/extrovert person during your analyst and associate years? (I'm very introverted but can be extroverted when needed to be)
