Background: I'm originally from NYC, but I attended university in Ohio in 2007. While in university, I managed to buy, rehab, and flip 10 houses primarily in B and C class neighborhoods. I never finished college in Ohio, and couldn't stand to live in Ohio, so I decided to move back to NYC and finish college at Baruch College, but before doing so, I parlayed all my profits into 8 rental properties in Ohio (all distressed properties which I stabilized and am getting 20%+ caps, with pretty much no appreciation).
I now live in Queens, NY and collect about 8k monthly rent from my properties in Ohio. I have been working in a commercial real estate brokerage for the past two years, and I do alright - I have a few notable retail and industrial deals under my belt, but I'm not killing it by any means.
I know I'm not going to be in commercial real estate brokerage forever. I know the true path to wealth is by being an owner, a developer, etc. However, the barrier to entry in NYC real estate is very high. Currently, I'm trying to transition into a real estate related job where I can learn useful skill-sets that will benefit me in my real estate career. To be brutally honest, I've come to realize I don't have much job skills. I have a degree in real estate development from Baruch College in NYC (an eyesore for recruiters who typically look for Columbia or NYU real estate degrees). I have minimal Argus and excel modelling experience from my college days. I have been teaching myself real estate finance by watching semesters of recorded classes on Real Estate Finance at Columbia Grad School on YouTube.
My quarter-life question to the community: What real estate jobs am I really suited for right now? I'm somewhat lost in life and would appreciate any direction!
