West Wood Realty began in 1996, when three realtors, each with years of experience, made a strategic decision to pool their talents and form a new real estate company named this new company West Wood Realty, Ltd. John Black was a native New Mexican and John March and Jim Haworth originally hailed from Montana. Their goals were simple:  Honest, Experienced, Reliable Real Estate Service. All three brokers had owned and operated their own companies before, and each had also owned, developed, leased and sold a variety of businesses from small retail pad users to very large ranches. As their new company formed, Jim Haworth’s friend from Oklahoma, Don Chalmers, invested in West Wood Realty. The three brokers and their investors started the biggest commercial real estate office on the West Side of the Albuquerque Metro area.

In August 1999, Shari Hollins joined as our office administrator, bookkeeper, and associate broker. Today, Shari is still the heart and soul of West Wood Realty!  In the 2000s, John Morrow joined West Wood as a broker and a few years later, Greg Campbell and Rod Smith also came on board. Following the 2003 death of John March to cancer, the West Wood brokers rededicated the company to succeed the way John March would have expected—with the highest standards of honesty, integrity, reliability, and experience. In 2010, Morrow, Campbell and Smith all became owner-brokers, adding to the company’s strength.
