Consulting Exit Opportunities

Got offered an MD position at a large Commercial RE firm for strategy. Any tips for what to ask for? They’re already agreeing to nearly double my salary at 220k from 110k and up to 50% annual bonus...

Thanks all for the help. Never really had an issue making a decision. Pretty excited about moving forth with the offer. Just wanted to know if anyone had transitioned or knows anyone that had transitioned to CRE and had any advice as to what to ask for and or expect in the new role.

Think about sales goals. Usually for this kind of hike there are usually unreasonable sales goals. If not, then congrats

Haha thanks, SC2. M2- I pretty much threw out a number and they said “done”. A1- I’ll be working to maintain broker relationships (wining and dining), as well as evaluating new markets for corporate moves and facility improvements based on their needs.

C1- I asked that question and their response was that they get even busier in this role because corporations start downsizing and looking for ways to consolidate office space which is the group I would be affiliated with. Thanks for the suggestions, folks. This is helping a lot.

OP, how did you negotiate such a high salary? Did they offer that at first or did you ask for that? Are you in RE right now. Didn’t even now there’s was real estate consulting lol
