JB Goodwin REALTORS® was recently awarded the top spot among midsize employers in Austin according to the American-Statesman’s 2014 Top Workplaces of Greater Austin project. The annual report which surveys over 22,000 employees at 159 Austin companies was released last week, and announced the top 100 local businesses.
As it turns out, Austinites are looking for more than just a job that pays well. Factors which ranked high on employees' lists included a balance between work and family life, being valued at work, good company leadership, and professional development.
So what makes JB Goodwin REALTORS® one of the top Austin employers? According to survey, the company's approach to leadership, technology support, and down-to-earth professional environment is what makes it so appealing. "I feel appreciated and the company is constantly striving to improve," says one employee. In fact, the company just recently overhauled their website, and invested in mobile-friendly technology which allows agents and their clients to securely sign documents from a remote location.
JB Goodwin REALTORS® is not new to this list. Founded in 1972, the residential real estate broker has received lots of recognition in past years for its employer satisfaction and workplace excellence. It comes with being Austin's oldest and largest independent real estate broker. 42 years later, founder and CEO JB Goodwin still takes great pride in running his company. J.B.'s personal approach to real estate along with his humble local roots in Austin really resonates with his agents.
One employer said it best: “When you treat people the right way, you can be doing business with their family and friends for years to come.”
J.B. couldn't agree more.
