Why are commercial real estate firms always hiring analysts? Is it a high turnover career? Would a transition from audit to CRE be a smart career move?

It's an entry level position. You get a year or two or three and you move up to something better, I think... It could be a good move if you are not into accounting and you enjoy the real estate stuff. You'll excel when you are doing something you like and are good at. It won't ruin you to go try it out--you can always come back in 6 months or a year and continue in accounting.

Think a lot of analysts are paid on commission based on deals closed, so not much to lose for firms to hire as many as are willing to join
