Does anyone know how to get a job in the Commercial Real Estate industry?
I am interested in getting into commercial real estate, not sure what area....leasing, property management, lending, loan officer, I know it sounds cliche, but I basically just want to go where some big money can be made. I have a background in residential real estate as a loan officer and Account Executive for a subprime lender. From what I hear, people on the commercial side make some great money, it just seems that everyone wants someone with commercial experience. I am willing to pay my dues, training, mentoring, etc, but I just need to find somewhere to get my foot in the door. Any help?!

There are a ton of positions on the job boards for this field. I happened to notice because I was looking for something similar and kept running into "Property Management" positions.

Try to talk to some executives in commercial real estate and see what it takes. If you don't succeed, send resumes and follow up on them. Commercial Real Estate isn't as great as it might seem. When the market is hot, it's probably great, but when it's not there is next to no activity and the commissions disappear.
