    It means "powerful, influential (and ruthless) real estate companies which operate in the particular area".

    Re: local property sharks

    I think I know what this expression means but I can't properly translate it into Polish. Am I right that:

    - is "local" an adjective?
    - are "property" and "sharks" the nouns?
