Our Company History

John R. Wood Properties Company History

Six Decades of Legendary Service

When John R. Wood Properties opened their doors in 1958, Naples was a sleepy fishing village with a few thousand residents. Marco Island, Bonita Springs, and Estero were sparsely settled outlying areas. Home sites in Port Royal could be purchased for as little as $7,500. In 1960, the direct hit of Hurricane Donna helped create a boom as insurance money and new buyers poured into the area. Along with the town, John R. Wood Properties began climbing their path of success.

The early 60’s saw new subdivisions popping up at the northern edge of town, such as Coquina Sands and The Moorings. The Quonset Hut Theater on Third Street and the drive-in on U.S. 41 were the only movie selections. The Rexall Drugstore on 5th Avenue South had the classic soda fountain and luncheonette, and the Swamp Buggy parade in late October was the major event of the year.

In the 70’s and 80’s, Southwest Florida continued to grow with Park Shore breaking ground, followed by other communities that included Pelican Bay, Bonita Bay, and Pelican Landing. However, the most significant growth period would be prompted by the completion of I-75 and the new airport in Fort Myers. The area also became known as the golf capital of the world and consistently recognized as a highly desirable destination.

For six decades, John R. Wood Properties has continued to thrive, and holds the distinction of being #1 in Southwest Florida for units sold and sales volume. Our agents are highly trained professionals with a dedication to ethics and philanthropy. The company is the oldest brokerage in Southwest Florida and has 18 office locations in the two-county area.
