Life at REW

Mission

We believe real estate can be one of life's great adventures, and we exist to inspire and equip people for that journey.  
 

Values 

People over profits.

Profits are important, they keep the lights on, but we will not compromise the quality of our work or make ourselves miserable in pursuit of financial gain.

We solve problems.  

Creativity is in our DNA, we approach problems with real enthusiasm and look for the many ways we could add value and make a positive impact on the people we serve. 

The experience matters.  

We do work that matters for people that care and we take pride in the work that we do. If it doesn't make the grade, we go back to the drawing board. 

Adventure requires courage.  

Uncertainty is part of life, we don't pull back from the edge, we take the risk and stretch ourselves. It's not only about the outcome, but the thrill that comes with the adventure of it all.

No jerks allowed, be humble. 

We operate in a climate of mutual respect, and we treat each other well.  We don’t elevate ideas above people, if you're a jerk then you ain't welcome here.

We show up for each other. 

We hire smart people, give them great work, and treat them like adults. No matter how we each choose to approach the day, we show up when we're needed and we deliver for the team.

What makes REW a great place to work

Developers give a lot more input at REW compared to other companies, where you're given a project and expected to just do it. At REW, we have a lot of say in the implementation of projects and that's really nice.
