The Kevin Wood Story

Tucker Farms

At age 11 Kevin began his first job picking strawberries and tomatoes at Tuckers Farm in Temperance, Michigan. Working 5 days a week, at that age not only built my character but it was fun having spending money that early in life too. My dad would often say  “if you need something done ask Kevin to do it”.

Rosewood Chevelle

A year before graduating college with a degree in Hospitality Management I started in sales with Brown Honda in Sylvania, Ohio. Cars were one of my passions and Honda’s were atop the list. My other favorite’s are muscle cars from late 60’s and early 70’s. While in sales at Honda my high knowledge, low pressure consultative approach was the difference maker. Seven years in a row I earned the Gold Master award for car sales volume and overall customer satisfaction.

1st Investment Property

I bought my first investment property in Toledo, Ohio. After reading a dozen books and attending many seminars the analysis paralysis was cured. The time had come to put the knowledge to work and get my feet wet.

The Wood Group Realtors Was founded

 For a few years my wife Stacie and I had been planning a move west to be closer to her mom and brothers.  It came earlier than expected when Tucson Medical Center began recruiting Labor and Delivery nurses in early 05’. What a leap of faith and an amazing transition from the midwest to the Old Pueblo. My wife advanced in her women's health career and I began a full time business in real estate. 

Wrote My 1st Book

Through months of late nights, nearly 2 decades of experience, and substantial help from a close friend I authored a 292 page book specifically about how to effectively buy and sell residential real estate.

Clients Say

“Kevin and his team sold one of our properties for 15% OVER the list price. At first we were skeptical, and now we are true believers in Kevin’s ideas and processes.”David

“We’ve sold three different properties with Kevin. One of which couldn’t be sold by other realtors. Once we put it on the market with Kevin, we had a solid offer in less than 30 days.” Heidi & Allen T.

A Real Estate Team You Can Trust

Kevin Wood

Founder of The Wood Group

After 11 successful years in automobile sales and residential real estate investing, we relocated our family to Tucson in the summer of 2005 and excited about our new careers. Residential real estate was the natural choice, coupling my sales & investing background,  along with knowledge and experience. 

Today, with nearly 15 years of residential real estate performance history, I continue to tell the facts about your homes value from the start. We won’t tell you what you want to hear just to get your listing. If this means we lose a few to our competitors that’s fine. In the long run our integrity and honesty will be intact. Therefore we won’t list your home just to add another listing to our inventory. If I don’t think it can be sold for what you want then we’ll tell you. Simply put if our real estate sign goes in your yard start packing. This same principles hold true if you’re considering buying, building, or investing as well.

More than 8 out 10 people we serve are from repeat and referrals. The strong word of mouth advertising has allowed us to rank among the top 3% nationally for several years in a row. 

You’ll find that I feel enthusiastic about Tucson. It’s because I discovered the natural beauty and high desert climate as a perennial visitor. The Old Pueblo is a community rich in culture and offers home buyers, sellers, re-locators, military personnel, and winter guests alike an excellent place to live, work, and retire at a fantastic value.

“There is no substitute for experience,” I have found that this definitely applies to our real estate services. My extensive marketing background, years in real estate and sales have encompassed diverse economic markets, price ranges, areas, and types of housing. 

When I’m not serving others or spending time with my wife and son’s I’m likely teeing up the little white ball, mountain biking the Arizona trail, or backpacking somewhere in the mountains surrounding Tucson. My favorite Arizona hike to date is a rim to rim journey across the Grand Canyon. What a magical experience! It’s simply another world below the rim. My other interests include gardening, cooking, bird watching, and caring for a pair of older desert tortoises (Rosie and Maizee) along with our pups Mashie and Roxie. Being outside is definitely my happy place. Oh and don’t forget the newest addition to our family, buddy, the parakeet.

Transaction Manager

Born on Christmas Day 1980, here in Tucson, Arizona.  I’ve spent most of my days here with exception to living a few years in San Antonio, Texas. Tucson has always felt like home to me though. During my time away from the Old Pueblo a career in real estate began as an office manager for a real estate property manager. A terrific foundation was built managing hundreds of rental homes and real estate investors. The business was intriguing and the pace enjoyable.

Soon after moving back to Tucson in 2012 I began searching for a work- from- home opportunity in real estate. It came quickly from a “Transaction Manager” ad on craigslist, which is how I met Kevin Wood. He took a huge chance and put me under his wing. Sales began a new side of real estate to learn. It peaked my interest and challenged me pursue this field further.

A couple years after I started working with Kevin, my husband and I purchased our first home. We also welcomed our our fourth child (Sarah). At present I’m happily married and enjoying a wonderful career of over 7 years working with Kevin. During my time as a Transaction Manger, my knowledge and experience has expanded significantly. Mostly because I just love people! It’s an absolute pleasure serving others. It’s no surprise many clients have become great friends. My years in the business have provided the opportunity and challenge to manage hundreds of transactions and dozens of short sales.  

My nickname soon after starting with the Wood Group has been the “Paperwork Whisperer”.  Details, to do lists, and deadlines come second nature.  Although my other nickname after 4pm is “Mother Goose”. How fitting!
