JBGoodwin REALTORS® opened a real estate office the day he graduated from the University of Texas, June 1, 1972. Now, over 40 years later, the JBGoodwin REALTORS® Company has over 400 agents and employees located in three offices in the Austin area, and one in San Antonio. The company has handled over $30,000,000,000 in real estate sales and leases comprised of over 46,500 individual transactions.

Goodwin perceived Austin's need for a professional, full-service real estate organization. He launched an extensive training program for his associates, joined a national real estate relocation service and established branch offices.

He has pursued the full-service aspect of his dream by starting a property management company, home building company, residential & commercial development company, a residential leasing service, a corporate relocation service, commercial sales & leasing company, insurance agencies and a mortgage company.

Goodwin's civic contributions to the community are numerous.  He has served on the Board 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. Supports the Children's Medical Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House.  He is currently the Chairman of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.

Business service has included being a Bank Director of three different banks, a Director of a mutual fund, and President of the Chicago based Real Estate Organization, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. Chaired statewide Blue Ribbon committees of education, tort reform and licensing, as well as the youngest person to ever Chair the Texas Association of REALTORS® Education Initiative.

He feels the success of a service organization is based on the strength and integrity of its people, and that this is what builds a strong company.
