Rank: Baboon | 138

I am talking to a small to mid sized development group based in Texas (although they do projects with neighboring states apparently) about an Associate role in their development/acq arm.

What types of excel models must an associate level hire be able to build fluently? If anyone has an example model it would be greatly appreciated.

What substantive real estate knowledge would you say is critical for such a role?

Any other advice or tips from guys who work in this area of development or have gone through the hiring process.

I will look into REFM programs as they have acq and dev programs. What would be the exit opps with such a role and standard salary plus bonus?

Comp would probably depend on the type of role you are in and what firm it is... will you be doing all financial work and acquisitions, or will you get into the field managing development projects a little? Look at the sheet from celassociates for a good base idea:
