Working in the US - Commercial Real Estate

Hi everybody,

Particularly keen on moving to the US to work in real estate finance. Currently working in LDN and c. 3 years experience in the field.

What would you recommend in terms of recruiters/firms and which of those favor European backgrounds?

Many thanks!

I moved from London to work in US real estate 5 years ago. The first thing that you will need to address is the visa. Do you have US citizenship? If not it will be very difficult, if not impossible to move.
