Berkadia Culture



“The company’s biggest focus right now is the future.”

Justin Wheeler, CEO

Our Vision

At Berkadia we are redefining the industry with long-term investments in people and technology that deliver actionable insights and create the best customer experience.

Our Values

Integrity is Everything

We say what we mean and do what we say. We never fear doing the right thing.

We Take the Long View

Our objective is long-term value, not short-term gain.


Our relationships with customers and colleagues are our most valuable assets.

We Innovate

A curious, empowered and diverse workforce challenges the status quo and drives change.

We love
our Jobs

When you enjoy what you do, it rarely feels like work.

We stand for Excellence

We set the highest standards and hold ourselves to them.

Best Places to Work

Berkadia is committed to providing a safe workplace where our employees feel their contributions are valued, they are empowered to create positive impact, and can grow their careers. As a result, Berkadia was selected as one of GlobeSt.’s Best Places to Work in 2023.

Corporate Philanthropy

One of the most important investments we can make as citizens is in our own communities. Employee volunteerism and charitable giving at Berkadia supports a variety of social issues and needs. As part of our commitment to giving back, we offer a Matching Gift Program and a Gift of Time Program that enable our team members to dedicate their time and resources to supporting the charitable initiatives of their choice.

Berkadia Way

Our culture, or Berkadia Way as we know it, encourages us to truly see people as people, with unique needs, challenges, and objectives. We take this into consideration when working with each other, engaging our clients, and supporting our communities. Thus, instilling a mindset that fosters our shared commitment to self-accountability helps us see our impact on each other and adjust our efforts accordingly.


We recognize the CRE industry hasn’t always been an inclusive one, but our team exists to present and open opportunities for all. Berkadia has a culture that cares for everyone as a person first and foremost, and we hope our candidates feel that from the moment they engage with us.

During my interview, the importance of culture and relationships at Berkadia was brought up multiple times. These two qualities are very important to me because I knew that I would be busy with work and getting deals closed, but I wanted to have good relationships with the people around me.
