Phillip Wood, President and Chief Executive Officer of John R. Wood Properties and Tom Grifferty, Division Head of Quail West Realty, today announced that Quail West Realty has signed a cooperative agreement with The Quail West Foundation.

The new arrangement combines the efforts of each group to promote the benefits of living in one of southwest Florida’s premier golf and resort-lifestyle communities.

“John R. Wood Properties have emerged as the dominant real estate group in Quail West through a dedication to customer service,” said Grifferty. “Since moving to Quail West in 2014, we have helped many clients discover this beautiful, award-winning community. Our team’s extensive industry experience, concierge-style service and thorough knowledge of this area make us uniquely qualified to continue addressing the needs of current and future Quail West residents.”

Founded in 1958, Naples-based John R. Wood Properties is the oldest major real estate brokerage in southwest Florida. The company recently reported 2020 written sales volume of $3.65 billion, an increase of 37.7% from 2019 written contract volume of $2.65 billion. In October 2020, John R. Wood Properties merged with Vineyards Naples Properties, which conducts approximately $100 million a year in residential transactions, to manage and oversee the community’s residential resale activity.

Quail West, which was named the 2019 Community of the Year, as well as honored in the category Best Clubhouse by the Collier Building Industry Association, is one of southwest Florida’s premier golf and resort-lifestyle communities. The 1,180 acre community currently has over 600 residential units. The community has seen sales of approximately $190 million over the past 12 months, a figure which continues to rise as both the number of sales and the average sales prices increase.
