West Wood Realty began in 1996 when three realtors, Jim Haworth, John Black and John March, each with years of experience, made a strategic decision to pool their talents and form a new real estate company named West Wood Realty, Ltd.  John March and Jim Haworth originally hailed from Montana.  John Black was a native New Mexican.  Their goals were simple: Honest, experienced, Reliable Real Estate Service.  These 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 West Wood Realty, Ltd. was 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 Albuquerque’s Metro area.
