JBGoodwin opened a real estate company the day he graduated from the University of Texas, June 1, 1972. Goodwin perceived Austin's and San Antonio’s need for a professional, full-service real estate organization. He launched an extensive training program for his agents, joined a national real estate relocation service, and began establishing branch offices.
He pursued the full-service real estate aspect of his dream by starting a corporate relocation service, commercial sales & leasing company, mortgage company, property management company, home building company, residential & commercial development company, residential leasing service, and insurance agencies.
Now, more than 50 years later, JBGoodwin REALTORS® has nearly 900 agents and staff located in four offices in the Austin area and four in the San Antonio area. The company has handled tens of billions of dollars in real estate sales and leases, comprised of over 100,000 individual transactions.
Goodwin's civic contributions to the community are numerous. He was Chairman of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Brackenridge Hospital Foundation, Austin Symphony, and Austin Chamber of Commerce. Chaired the Economic Development Council for the Austin Chamber of Commerce. Chaired committees for United Way and Austin Community College. Today, he and the company actively support a wide variety of local nonprofits through its JBGiving charitable arm.
In 2019, J.B. was awarded REALTOR® Emeritus status by the National Association of REALTORS®, and In 2021 was awarded a RISMedia Real Estate Leadership award. For 2022, J.B. was named to the RISMedia Real Estate Newsmakers Hall of Fame, and he was enormously proud for JBGoodwin REALTORS® to receive a 2023 Top Workplaces USA Award, finishing First in the nation.
