JBGoodwin REALTORS® - Austin & San Antonio Real Estate Blog

On October 24, 2019, the JBGoodwin family lost a beloved colleague and friend when the Founding President of our San Antonio Division, Reagan Greer, passed away peacefully after a long-term illness.

Having successfully led the San Antonio division from its inception in 2010, Reagan was the very embodiment of an inspirational leader. The hundreds of agents who worked alongside him over the years will always remember him for his infectious enthusiasm, positive outlook, and undying encouragement.

In addition to his time in real estate and as a devoted father, Reagan was a man of many lifetime achievements in the city he called home. His interest in public service and politics led to his election as Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3 and Bexar County
