I have had a number of different conversations with people in acquisitions roles lately, and in a recent conversation, I was told that many people opt to leave acquisitions for brokerage because brokerage is less stressful.
This seems backwards to me. I figure that brokerage would be more stressful because you never know when your next paycheck will come in. I've heard stories of people going for months and even years without making a buck in brokerage.
I do see how acquisitions could be stressful in that you will be held responsible for buying a property that ends up sucking wind, and maybe I am discounting that too much, but I still think brokerage has to be a tougher spot.
Anyone out there leave acquisitions for brokerage or know of anyone who has?
