All advice, comments, and questions are appreciated. I tried to go through the Wharton and Harvard MBA RE resume books to get a feel for formatting and good points to illustrate, but there is always room for improvement.

I'm assuming you took out your contact info just for privacy purposes, correct?

that is correct

Looks good but i'd try to add more details regarding your modeling ability and/or structuring of deals.

Great, I'll work on adding more detail there. Thank you!

You are both an Analyst in Dallas and an Associate in Chicago at present? How does that work?

/if that is a mistake and you didn't spot it yourself, chance is that this part of your CV doesn't read easy. I would try to change it. Maybe try to move it to the right side where the location is.

Given the fact that you have plenty of experience, I understand that you need to use all available space. But those side margins are quite thin arent they? There seems to be no unnecessary fluff in your bullet points but maybe you can try to shorten them nevertheless.

//Take it with a grain of salt as I don't have a fancy star next to name for a reason :)

^ lol. Also, line thickness under real estate analyst is inconsistent.

yeah and the line under Northwestern University is inconsistent with the other lines. To be honest the formatting is quite bad

And why the heck is SCUBA in capital letters? Makes no sense to me. Just write "scuba diving" like a normal person would

One more thing while I'm at it, some of your bullet points go further than the lines under your headers. Looks not good at all. You need consistent margins.
