One of the simplest facts that accounts for Austin's rapid growth over the last few years is that people want to be here. There are a lot of factors that can account for that... heck ask 10 different people on any Austin street and you'll get 10 different answers. Some people will talk live music, others will talk about the food or the weather or less tangible things like the culture or the atmosphere.
All of these are valid reasons to be drawn to a place like Austin. Just last week though, another reason to love our city was made public. For the third year in a row, Austin has ranked in the top 10 cities in the country for employee engagement.
Anyone who follows our blog knows that as an organization, we here at JB Goodwin value our employees and…
The Predecessor to Mobile-Friendly Websites
It seems like just yesterday that the best thing a website could provide for its users was a “mobile version” of itself. This was pretty straightforward. You would open up a site on your smartphone and it would resemble a jumbled-up puzzle, or would show only a portion of the site’s content.

Click on this text, and the site would shift to a simplified form of the full version, one that fit perfectly to your screen and was easy to navigate.
There was a…

JBGoodwin REALTORS® successfully defended the rights of real estate professionals in Texas against a suit brought on by patent troll Property Disclosure Technologies (or PDT). For those unfamiliar with patent trolls or patent holding companies, they are firms who purchase patents with the sole purpose of looking for, and suing companies in violation of those patents for financial gain. They do not produce intellectual property, nor do they conduct any original research or manufacturing. Most of their suits never make it to court, as the threat of hefty legal fees cause most defendants to settle out of court.
