GoodStory is proud to be a part of this monumental legacy. By providing us with exclusive tools, training, and leadership, RE/MAX Hallmark continually encourages us to raise the bar.

No detail is overlooked, and no matter is too small to be considered. We get to know you in the same detail-focused way that we get to know the properties we offer. Delivering excellence is what sets us apart from our competitors, and it’s what makes us so successful at what we do.


Warmth is who we are — it’s what anchors our purpose and defines the GoodStory experience. We have created an environment that makes you feel safe, listened to, and cared for. Our signature warmth characterizes every interaction, and, oftentimes, our partnerships become long-term friendships.


We believe in the power of creativity and innovation, and we always look for new ways to address challenges. Our creativity allows us to connect intimately and emotionally with you, a connection that ultimately leads to your success story.

We are guided by honesty, passion, and a deep desire to build strong connections. Our deepest purpose is to help you live a good story.

Our Clients

Your desire to live a good story is the reason why we are in business. Working toward your good story is a joy for us; it’s what motivates our team to deliver an excellent real estate experience every single time.

We go beyond the traditional processes and dynamics of a client-service-provider relationship. At GoodStory, we form partnerships that are real, and we endearingly refer to partners like you as good souls.

Good souls value collaboration.

You know that the best journeys are the ones travelled in good company, and you willingly put in the time and effort required for us to be aligned in your vision, goals, and aspirations.

Good souls value the guidance of a professional.

You trust us to do the absolute best work on your behalf, and you rely on the expertise of our team to navigate the real estate landscape.

Good souls have hopes and dreams.

You hold fast to the vision of your good story, look to future chapters with excitement, never doubting that you will be the victorious main character of your story.

“You will not be disappointed and I can say that with 100% confidence. And you are going to make new friends.”



A Good Story


We believe that sharing experiences of triumph can be both helpful and encouraging to those navigating the real estate landscape.

Meg and Mark are not your typical homeowners. Not many can say that they had a hand in the architecture, build, and design of their own home. From ensuring that their house was positioned in the most energy-efficient orientation relative to the sun and building an air-tight structure to avoid heat loss, to incorporating the most unique, jaw-dropping features — not a single element was overlooked.
