Careers in Real Estate

Careers in Real Estate

At the end of the last decade, the crash of the real estate market heralded the coming of the global economic crisis, and the industry hit never-before-seen lows. As the market recovers, job opportunities are emerging once again, and the industry still requires people who think big, act quickly, and aren’t afraid to take a few risks. Moguls like Sam Zell and Donald Trump, who have made fantastic fortunes on real estate gambles, are still among the most admired in the profession. Even for nonbillionaires, the thrill of deal making, the promise of financial success, and the potential to have a lasting impact on cities and communities make real estate a rewarding profession.
