Professional Expertise

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Millbrook Real Estate is formerly Millbrook Real Estate LLC, founded by
Maxwell Goodwin.

Max was born and raised in the Lake District in the UK. He enjoyed the privilege of spending his childhood in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. He had dogs, rabbits and horses as well as three siblings. In 1977, after a year in Africa and a year working for a construction company, he attended the University of Wales, Aberystwyth and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Economics in 1980. (This surprised a number of people). He was awarded a scholarship and attended the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and graduated with a Master of Arts in International Relations. He worked for the French national steel company, USINOR, for a number of happy years in New York City where he managed the High Carbon Steel product lines. After a year or so with a fledgling internet start-up company called Global Analysis in 1988, also in New York, marriage beckoned along with the responsibility of fatherhood. Discovering the Millbrook area in 1991, and already in property development, he decided to focus his attentions on Dutchess County, an area of amazing natural beauty. In 1993 he became involved in the residential brokerage market, mostly to save commissions on transactions. He spent four years with Sotheby’s before starting his own brokerage company in 1998. He and his wife moved to the area full-time in 1998. Max has built, renovated and moved a number of homes in the area, but has been living happily in the Shekomeko Valley, north of Millbrook, with his wife, Victoria, and their two boys, for the last ten years.
