What type of real estate company is it? A real estate sales company, real estate developer, real estate leasing company, what?
From that information you are probably as in-tune as you need to be. A sales company will have, in addition to operating expenses, commissions income (that's how they get paid in general) and commissions paid back out to the agents. The developer will have land and development costs (generally treated as inventory/assets and expensed as sold). A leasing company will have rental incomes, various expenses and a whopping depreciation to compute, depending on ownership.
The specifics of the job will vary. So much so that you won't be "the master" of all they are looking for, nor should you try to be, nor should they be expecting someone who is to be interviewing for the position. Just be yourself, and be confident in what you know and what you've done to date.
