A 40-year veteran of the real estate industry on the Westside, Mary Beth Woods has repeatedly been recognized and honored for her outstanding sales. As a Coldwell Banker Previews Estates Director, she has been a top producer not only within the Coldwell Banker Jon Douglas Company’s flagship Brentwood West office, but also within the entire real estate industry. She has recently been honored as one of the Real Estate Industry’s “Super Agents,” as she has been for many years, and has been honored as a member of Coldwell Banker’s prestigious “Society of Excellence” and is presently in the top one percent of all sales associates, internationally. Woods was recently recognized in the Wall Street Journal as one of the “Top Agents in the United States.” She is listed as No. 26 in the Greater Los Angeles Rankings and No. 30 in all of Southern California for all of Coldwell Banker. As per title company statistics, for the past 20 years, she has been one of the top 25 listing agents on the Westside for properties over $1 million.
Woods is continually adding to her list of achievements. She is also a Certified Relocation Specialist and a Certified Negotiation Specialist, and has taken extensive negotiation classes, such as Negotiating with Difficult People at Harvard and Arbitration and Mediation at Pepperdine Law School. She has also earned the designation of a certified short-sale and properties-in-foreclosure specialist. She is presently sharing her training experience within our local Coldwell Banker company. Woods has also recently been designated as a “Relocation/Affinity Agent” for Coldwell Banker Worldwide, as well as designated as a certified architectural specialist. Woods is recognized as a “Top Luxury Real Estate Agent” in the United States and is a member of LuxuryRealestate.com. She holds an “Architectural Specialist Designation” as well as is a Previews Estates Director. Woods consistently sells Westside properties over $1 million.
While her personal production may exceed that of many small real estate companies, Woods’ focus is not only on the end result, but also on the details that assure it will be satisfactory. Her business, which consists largely of repeat and referral customers, is based on service. Her tremendous commitment and understanding of family housing needs have placed her consistently on top. “It’s my best feature,” she says. “I believe in solutions. I never give up. Satisfied clients are the job’s greatest perks!”
Woods has listed and sold over $1 billion of real estate, from the beaches of Malibu to the hills of Hollywood, and everywhere in between. She specializes in estate properties but is an expert on the whole Westside and participates in sales, from condominiums to multimillion-dollar mansions on a daily basis. In addition to her impressive sales, Woods is equally committed to providing service to her community.
She and her husband Don, who is a business litigation specialist with Hennigan, Bennett and Dorman, have taken an active interest in their children’s schools: St. Martin of Tours and Loyola, Marlborough and Marymount high schools, Georgetown University and Loyola Marymount University. They have served as board members for a number of these schools. In addition, Woods is a National Charity League volunteer as well as a board member of the Juniors of the Social Service and St. Joseph Center, and she chaired the building of the Jon Douglas house in Watts for Habitat for Humanity in 1994.
Committed to providing knowledgeable service to her clients, Woods continues to be an asset to the Westside community and a distinguished representative of The Sign of Respect.
