Jeff Goodman, a licensed real estate salesperson at Halstead Property in New York, devotes much of his time and energy to helping his clients achieve their homeownership goals through getting their properties listed and sold for the best possible price, then helping them find and buy their dream home.
A fourth generation New Yorker who grew up in Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn, and has also lived in Park Slope, Boerum Hill, the East Village and now, Harlem, Goodman has a deep understanding of his city’s ever-evolving neighborhoods and fluctuating real estate market. He now collaborates with famed tour guide Joyce Gold to create a private series of walking tours entitled “Rediscovering New York.”
“Most of my business is referral-based and most of my business now comes from people in my network who have come on the tours,” says Goodman. Drawing on his extensive travels and the skills he developed over the course of 25 years as an advertising and sales executive, Goodman also serves as the producer of the walking tours and says Gold is the reason people show up. He also says that as a longtime active member of New York’s LGBT community, his association with Gold also overlaps with local organizations, which only generates more leads.
