In commercial real estate, the numbers are big. Instead of trading assets worth $10,000 or $20,000, you will be dealing with assets that could be $5mm, $10mm, or higher. These large values tend to attract a level of sophistication that may not be found in other investment deals. The potential for large losses (in the millions), tends to drive these individuals to work harder to find amazing deals and make money.
