Things we value:

Curiosity. Why? How? Repeat.
Nerdiness. Financial news and trends are fascinating. Seriously.
Relentlessness. No one here gives up. We try. We fail. We try again.
Passion. If you don’t get excited about homeownership, mortgages, and real estate, it simply won’t work.
Smarts: book and street. We have to use all the tools at our disposal to build Better.
Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people's biggest dreams are in your hands.
Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.
