The Company Legacy

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.

In 1954, Mr. Atwood’s son, Charles Atwood joined the firm and continued the family legacy of Real Estate service. Charles focused on multifamily development to grow the rental market in Southern Minnesota.

Continuing the family tradition, Charles Atwood’s son Tom joined the company as Resident Manager in 1981, becoming the third generation legacy. In 1984, Tom became a Broker with the firm. Realizing the need for expanded services, Atwood Land Company eventually became Atwood Management.

Today, two of Tom Atwood’s sons, Matthew and Michael Atwood, lead Atwood 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.
