Outside the Office

Our Colorful Culture

Our team is comprised of all sorts of people - adventurers, chefs, dog trainers, and aquafiles, to name a few – and we value the uniqueness that exists in our AVANA family. To us, colleagues who are fulfilled outside the office bring their best selves to the team every day.

Our Success is Built on the Shared Values of our Team

At AVANA, we pride ourselves on being both unique and diverse while embracing a set of shared values that guide us in all we do. Since our company’s founding in 2002, we have cultivated a workplace atmosphere that feels like a family – we come together as a team to achieve superior results for our clients.

As the company has grown, we have added layers of different skills, languages, ethnicities, and talents – all contributing to the effectiveness and sustainability of our team in an increasingly global and evolving world.

In an ever-changing world, our values remain constant. At AVANA, we select, develop, and nurture team members who are committed to living these values every day.

HONESTY

We would rather stick to what we know than to venture out and work on transactions that we have little to no experience in. We have to know our limits and be honest with ourselves and our investors, our clients and our partners.

EXEMPLARY WORK

We strive to provide the best risk assessment for every transaction, so we can make the most informed decisions for our investors and lending partners, and provide value-added advice. We continuously work to employ the best practices in real estate mortgage banking.

INTEGRITY

We believe this is a value that is innate, and we are fortunate to have staff that work and live by this code of conduct.

CLIENT FOCUSED

We will always put our clients' best interests first, which requires us to be responsive and accessible to their needs at all times.

LOVE FOR FAMILY

We believe the foundation of any employee is their family and we strive to make sure there is a work/life balance.

FAITH

It guides us irrespective of our differences, but overall our faith credo is “treat others as you would like to be treated”.
