An Insider's view of Better

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The work life balance here at better is great! My schedule is always consistent and my management team is very flexible when time off is needed. Having unlimited paid time off is very helpful when you need a personal day, time off for a holiday or just need some time for vacation.

Jessica Mendez

Processing Expert

What does your typical day look like?

As a Loan Consultant Associate, I communicate with borrowers daily to guide them through the biggest transaction of their lives- their mortgage transaction! This includes going over their application, rate options, and ensuring they’re familiar with the Better process. I ensure that all my borrowers feel taken care of and at ease with the process.

Mak Bonakdar

Loan Consultant Associate

What makes someone successful on your team?

Borrower-Centric Mindset! Closers need to be able to connect with the borrowers and help guide them through the conclusion of this transaction which for most people is one of the largest transactions of their lives.
Creative Problem Solvers- Closers need to think outside the box to solve issues and get the file closed.

Derek Steel-Waas

Closing Expert Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office vibe is really warm and inviting. We have lunch together, do happy hours in the office, and celebrate birthdays!
Our open office space allows for a lot of interdepartmental collaboration and everyone is always willing to help each other out. I feel lucky to say that I can truly call my coworkers my work family!
