REPE SS to corporate PE, is this possible?

Hello everyone,
I know this question has been asked before but I haven't found an answer to the exact same situation:
2 years experience in Deal Advisory in corporate (B4), now offered to move to a REPE Special Situations/Distressed top tier fund (think Apollo, Oaktree) as analyst of NPL/REOs portfolios.

I don't know if I'd like to stay in RE for the long run, would it be possible to change to traditional/distressed PE after some years of experience in these type of deals, even "downgrading" to a smaller fund (LMM)? Has anyone done this?
Does NPL/REOs exit opps include traditional PE funds or is distressed RE regarded as RE and the market will pigeon hole you to RE funds?

Appreciate monkey bot but my question wasn't answered before
Has anyone transitioned out of distressed NPLs from a top fund before to traditional PE?
Does NPLs pigeon hole you to that kind of assets or can you lateral to other PERE (working with REITs instead of assets for example)?
