"The best meal I’ve ever had was a 16-course lunch at Momofuku Ko in New York City. It was so creative – a lot of the preparations I’d never had before and will probably never have again. It. Was. Fantastic."


I used to be a client of Green Street Advisors. I was familiar with the company and some of the great people here. After five years in New York City I said, “I’ve had enough.” I wanted to move to a beach town, so I set my sight on Green Street. I liked the research product, culture, and work-life balance; it was a great fit.

The Green Street valuation methodology is different from other equity research shops. At Green Street, we are very focused on figuring out the right way to value real estate and have a large team of analysts that are able to take a deep dive into company and market analysis. And, our relative pricing model is a unique and powerful tool. Everything we do is built in-house, from the databases to the methodology.

Attitude is the most important quality. Everyone at Green Street is willing to work hard, develop quality products and continue to grow. For new team members, as long as you have a good base of financial knowledge, we can teach you complex finance theories or how to build a model, but you need to have a good attitude to be on our team. The best people come in focused on the mission and motivated to work hard.

I have a Wheaten Terrier puppy. He’s about a year and a half old now. He’s actually the unofficial Green Street mascot. There are a lot of co-workers who have borrowed him when they were thinking about getting a puppy…but he’s a little crazy so a lot of times he convinces them not to get a dog after all.
