"I had the good fortune to be referred to Jim Farah and Trish Goodwin of The Farah Goodwin Team at Compass by my real estate attorney. From the initial phone call with Jim to the follow-up meeting at my home, I was impressed by their professionalism, expertise, and responsiveness. Jim and Trish represented me in the simultaneous sale of my Coop and the purchase of another unit in my building. They provided expert advice on minor updates and staging that would improve the marketability of my home and they even managed the entire staging process while I was traveling. Their initial market analysis was helpful in determining the listing price and they provided comparable listings so I could compare my home to recently closed and listed properties. They kept me apprised of showing and open house feedback in a timely way. This feedback and their guidance enabled me to react to the realities of a changing market. On the purchase side, they worked directly with the seller who had inherited the property and was not represented by an agent. The Compass market analysis was persuasive in the price negotiation and they went beyond the call of duty in dealing with the seller’s attorney and my building’s property management company. I would recommend Jim and Trish without reservation for any real estate needs. They are a joy to work with." - CT, Seller and Buyer
About The Farah Goodwin Team
Jim Farah and Trish Goodwin co-founded the Farah Goodwin Team in 2015.
Compass was growing rapidly at the time, and they each wanted more hands on
deck so they could continue providing exceptionally good service. The team
they formed has C-suite experience, values honesty, professionalism, and
hard work, and appreciates the beautiful things in this world, including
the art and architecture of New York. Together, Jim, Trish, and fellow team
member Danee Ashton Goodman bring clients the best of both worlds: the
attention to detail of a boutique agency and the technical support of a
large, innovative company. The team’s ultimate goal is to make clients
exceedingly happy, and all three members have that in mind every single day.
Jim is a co-founder of the Farah Goodwin Team at Compass. He hails from the
Lone Star State, but he's been a die-hard New Yorker forever, and has had a
20-year career in Manhattan and Brooklyn real estate. Jim received his MBA
from Wharton and went on to serve as president of his family apparel
business, Farah, Inc., a publicly traded company started by his
grandfather. At Farah, Jim gained valuable C-suite experience that set him
apart from other brokers when he began his real estate career. He found it
came naturally to him to identify great investments and to provide finely
tuned marketing strategies. Although he is proud to have sold hundreds of
millions in in property value over the years, his favorite sign of success
is his loyal clientele. People keep coming back to him every time they
move. When a recent buyer said “Thank you for being more patient with me
than I was with you,” it meant the world to Jim. He puts his heart and soul
into providing a snag-free process that feels like a walk in Central Park.
Always generous with his time, Jim has done a lot of volunteer work for
organizations including Rotary, YMCA, and United Way, and has served on
several university boards and councils.
