2021 IMPACT Report
Goodman Real Estate
On behalf of the Goodman Real Estate (GRE) team, we are excited to share our fourth annual IMPACT Report illustrating our five focus areas: shelter, community, education, sustainability, and relief. As a regional housing provider, we have a responsibility to grow and strengthen the communities in which we live, work, and serve. Our culture is driven by the passion of our team members and grounded in our mission to be a driving force for positive community change.
Our inspiration comes from the amazing work that local non-profits and institutions are leading in our communities and driven by our mission as a company to make a difference. Through our IMPACT Program, we are grateful to partner with our residents, non-profits, schools, and employees through purposeful initiatives. We are thankful for the continued commitment of our outstanding partners and team members and are proud of everything we were able to achieve with them.
In 2021, we delivered $100,000 in philanthropic donations, provided over $200,000 in rent discounts, held our largest food drive to date, launched our new IDEAL (Inclusion, Diversity, Education, Accessibility & Leadership) IMPACT Initiative, and empowered our employees with two fully paid volunteer days, and much more.
We’re excited to continue these collaborative efforts and find new ways to make an IMPACT in our communities in 2022. We hope that reading this inspires you to look for ways to make a difference in your community too.

IMPACT reflects the core values of Goodman Real Estate lived out in our daily work, communities and partnerships.
At Goodman Real Estate, we focus on making a purposeful IMPACT through shelter, community, education, sustainability, and relief.
“Goodman Real Estate is an outstanding industry partner for North Seattle College’s Residential and Commercial Property Management bachelor’s degree program. As a Program Advisory Board member, they share industry trends and updates to help our program evolve, and they have gone above and beyond by establishing the “Future Property Leaders of America” scholarship. This scholarship has increased opportunity and access to a bachelor’s degree and a career pathway, and has allowed students to focus on their education and future career in property management knowing they have financial support through a scholarship. Thank you Goodman Real Estate for your strong partnership and support!”

“Housing Connector is fortunate to partner with Goodman Real Estate to ensure that no unit sits vacant while there are individuals in need of a home. Goodman Real Estate is a shining example for how companies can approach social impact and their philosophy demonstrates that doing good in the community is simply good business. As Housing Connector expands into Pierce County and beyond, we are grateful to have a partner like GRE committed to building bridges and opening doors for families in our community. Thank you GRE team, for your partnership and support.”

In 2021, we continued to grow the One Percent IMPACT Initiative at Goodman Real Estate. This program helps individuals and families find housing at GRE communities. These are residents who need a second chance, an amended screening or discounted rent. This program supports households during a time of need and helps them get back on their feet.

These resources include rental assistance, food resources, financial counseling and more. RRAD was instrumental in working with our residents to help them find solutions and apply for assistance.

We partnered with North Seattle College to support their Residential and Commercial Property Management Bachelor’s Degree Program through both a monetary donation and volunteering of our time.
We strengthened our partnership with Year-Up, a non-profit organization that teaches students about working in the corporate environment. The program places students into six-month internships where students get valuable hands-on experience.
