Thanks a lot for your timely response. From the sounds of things, it looks like you aren't there anymore. Can I ask what level you were at and why you left? If you don't want to share I understand. I actually just got a followup email right now and it seems that they want me for an associate (pre-mba) position. I do have individual real estate investing knowledge in addition to having worked for one of the top 3 commercial brokerages (Marcus Millichap, CBRE, Grub Ellis) out here for a bit over a year. You are dead on about my current position as I am at a boutique IBD that only focuses on FIG (bank M&A and capital markets). I want to exit as I feel the FIG industry is dying and would love to be in real estate as a lifetime career. How would you say your exit ops were after leaving CIM, I hope you didn't go get an MBA since I don't want to do that. In my phone interview, I specifically told them I do not want to go get an MBA and would like to grow with them, which they said is possible, but not probable.
I can send you my email if you don't feel like posting a reply on here, just let me know. Thanks again.
