We bring joy to our borrowers, real estate agents, regulators, and investors by providing ethical mortgages. We share joy with each other by giving praise, helping achieve goals, teaching new skills, and trying new experiences.
We start from first principles, so that we land on potentially different and better solutions, which we call “Eave elegant.” We train ourselves to look beyond symptoms and surface-level data. We accept that we can't solve all problems, but we prioritize the important ones and drive them to completion.
We prefer ownership over consensus. When one of us implements a smart decision quickly, we all learn faster. Ownership requires the desire to seek advice, to share what you've learned, and to course correct when needed.
Flow is “peak performance” for individuals and teams. We strive to experience flow every day. If obstacles or turbulence come our way, we move around them, adapt to new paths, and persevere.
We create long-term foundations and iterate from there. We create norms and invest in routines to stay well.
We say the same things to our teammates, our customers, our regulators, our investors, and ourselves. If we feel discomfort or dissonance, we voice it, follow-up, and take action.
