The Atwood companies had a humble and courageous beginning in the early part of the 20th century and has continued the family tradition of quality service and professionalism in the real estate industry to the people of Southern Minnesota.
After graduating for the University of Minnesota in the early 1930’s, F.C. Atwood founder, moved to Mankato from St. Cloud, Minnesota. In 1934, he founded the F.C. Atwood Land Company and dealt primarily in farm and land sales.
In 1954, Mr. Atwood’s son, Charles Atwood joined the firm and continued the family legacy of Real Estate service. Realizing the need for expanded services, Charles Atwood founded Atwood Realty in 1965 to offer services for residential and commercial real estate needs.
Atwood Land Company continued to operate concentrating on property leasing and management.
Continuing the family tradition, Charles Atwood’s son Tom joined the company as Sales Manager in July 1983, becoming the third generation legacy. In 1984, Tom became a Broker with the firm. Tom took over the management of CENTURY 21 Atwood Realty, Inc. and Atwood Land Company in 1986. Atwood Land Company eventually became Atwood Property Management.
Today, two of Tom Atwood’s sons, Matthew and Michael Atwood, lead Atwood Property Management as fourth generation owners in the family companies.
Growth, diversity, quality customer service and high ethical standards have always been an integral and consistent part of the Atwood companies plan.
