I asked Alex, what’s the best part about working at PeerStreet? He said: “The company strives to make a lasting positive change on an industry that impacts every person in this country, and yet the industry is very inefficient. Technology is a great equalizer, but it has been greatly underused in real estate finance to date. PeerStreet is working to change that and this is what makes my job and the company so exciting.”
