As I sit here writing for this blog I find myself in unfamiliar territory – surrounded by the corporate real estate team, a long distance from my first rotation in secured lending.
Okay, this may be a slight exaggeration as they are merely situated directly opposite me, but the work variety is undoubtedly different, which is ideal for increasing my experience in the industry.
I had a great last few weeks with the team, once again valuing some amazing properties in prime central London, including a penthouse overlooking Hyde Park, and a huge 80 acre country home. My time there has been thoroughly enjoyable and a great learning experience – and we wrapped the whole 6 months up with a few drinks on Friday, which was a really nice gesture.
I’m looking forward to my next 6 months in corporate real estate and discovering exactly what it entails and I am sure the experience will be just as positive as the last.
With the JLL tournament also coming up later in the week, and a few of the guys from my new team playing, this will be a great time to network with them and represent Montagu Evans at another event. Hopefully, this time we can go all the way and bring home the trophy!
