The SRECTrade team is ambitious. The group works within a laid back San Francisco office but has very high standards, countless ideas for perpetual growth and a strong moral obligation to their customers. Everyone comes together to make SRECTrade run smoothly and as an intern I was given responsibility and independence with room to voice my opinion as well as the support I needed to complete my assignments.
Everyone there was willing to take time out of their own project to go in depth with me about something I was curious about whether that be an interesting trade from the brokerage desk or a set of new excel skills.
