Accounting

anyone on here switch from accounting to equity research/banking? I know the switch can be a stretch, but not unheard of - looking to network / advice on leaving public accounting for finance roles

My parents are looking to buy a house in NYC - Queens or Brooklyn. They asked me to help the process. I’m renting myself, how does one begin with the looking process in NYC? Do you just look at Zillow? Or should they get a realtor? 🤷‍♂️
