I think you have a decent shot at a top school (although a school Columbia, Wharton or HBS may be a stretch). As you know, top business school programs are very competitive so, even with statistics that fall in the ranges, you will need to have a fantastic application (great essays and phenomenal LORs are a must) in order to get a spot!
I like everything I read about you, I just want you to realistically understand the situation! Another note of advice, I'd be honest about your goals in all of your applications - if you are passionate about Real Estate then it is fine to let this passion show in your application for all schools. Just keep in mind that many business programs treat RE as an asset (which it is!) and will focus on "asset valuation" rather than have programs geared towards treating RE any differently. I think this is a good approach for you as you begin your essays. RE can be your passion but you'll want to learn investing fundamentals and business fundamentals (and entrepreneurial/start-up fundamentals if you plan to start your own company!). Operations, strategy, marketing...all of this is essential whether RE is the asset you are selling/investing/buying or another company/stock/product!
As you are ahead of the game, right now I'd focus most strongly on doing a great job at work and cultivating relationships with the people who will serve as your recommenders. I really think that phenomenal recommendations make all the difference!
