IMPACT reflects the Goodman Real Estate core values 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.
The Ways We IMPACT Our Communities and People:
As we create or renovate our communities, we reach out to local non-profits in the spirt of productive collaboration to serve the more vulnerable in those communities. Through investing in ongoing partnerships, we are dedicated to providing a sense of place for all our neighbors.
"GRE is a critical partner in our mission to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners. Thanks to their support, more families can stay in their homes and our communities are safer and more vibrant. Thank you!" – JENNY WHELAN, REBUILDING TOGETHER SEATTLE
As active and collaborative neighbors, we partner with organizations that share our values and foster engagement with City officials and local Chambers of Commerce. We look for ways to see all members of our community thrive and grow.
"The Colman Building and other GRE buildings have participated in our Giving Tree program and helped our local chapter fulfill more than 1,250 gift requests. GRE consistently goes above and beyond, truly showing an interest in their tenants." – Donna Verretto, Make a Wish Foundation
We strive to be at the forefront of innovation as we partner with institutions to educate and develop skills in the communities we serve. Through creating opportunities for people to deepen their understanding and marketable skills, we can make an IMPACT in both their lives and the industry.
“Goodman Real Estate was our first partner to provide scholarships for students enrolled in North Seattle College’s new Property Management BAS program. We value our work with GRE and know that our students will benefit greatly from our connection to knowledgeable industry professionals.” – Jesse Cooley, North Seattle College
We are proud of our long-time commitment to sustainability. It’s at the core of our corporate DNA, whether in adaptive reuse and restoration of historic buildings preserving resources (and history). Sustainability also includes seeking ways to upgrade buildings to greener standards, and designing new buildings to current standards of sustainability.
"We really appreciate working with GRE. We have completed multiple loans that help with the sustainability of the County's utilities, allowing the tenant to consume less energy. These loans were done in conjunction with Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s 'Green' loan programs. We look forward to providing additional 'Green' loans to GRE." – Allan Edelson, Walker & Dunlop
In times of crisis we collaborate with our professional and trade partners and local organizations to provide relief. Our commitment to community includes small-scale actions that make a significant IMPACT.
"‘Thank you and God bless you.’ Please forward this heartfelt thank you to everyone at GRE who played a role in assisting them. It really made a difference." – Anonymous
