Some of Resmark’s clients/partners include Lennar Multifamily Communities, Greystar, Related Companies, Sares Regis, and William Lyon Homes, to name just a few. The company does business in California, the Western United States, Texas, and the D.C./Mid-Atlantic region, and maintains offices in California, Texas and Washington, D.C.
Mr. Goodman has served on the boards of directors of four publicly traded companies, including two REITs. He currently sits on the Advisory Council of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate, the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate Advisory Board, and the National Advisory Council for Israel Bonds.
