How to prepare for investment sales internship interview?

Hi everyone, I am an incoming graduate student at an ivy. I have an interview next week for an internship taking place next semester at CBRE/JLL in the Philadelphia/New York/Boston-area. The internship is with the investment sales team. Can anyone who has had an internship or a FT job with a similar firm and department please shed light on the type of questions I should expect during the interview process? From reading through other threads, I have seen that behavior questions tend to dominate the interview. Just wanted to make another post about the IS interview process to see if there is more insight. Thank you in advance!

If anyone ends up reading this post because they are in the same boat, I was just asked behavioral questions. I met with two Senior VPs and an associate, the total interview process lasted about an hour and 20 minutes.
