Top Midsize Workplace: JBGoodwin Realtors lands top spot 5th time in 7 years ‘by doing a good job’

J.B. Goodwin began his real estate career as a junior in college.

Kara Carlson, Austin American-Statesman

Andrew Medina had never worked in real estate until he became a real estate agent about 18 months ago.

He previously worked in retail, but he said he'd always had a desire to be an entrepreneur, and real estate caught his eye.
