Get to Know Don Woods

Martha and Don, formerly long- time Orlando residents, re-located from St. Petersburg/Clearwater area on Florida's "Sun Coast" to the Southeast Volusia County's "Fun Coast". Looking to get away from the "big city", they purchased a villa in New Smyrna Beach's Sugar Mill Country Club, becoming full-time  residents Christmas 2000.

Don, one of the few native  Floridians (AKA "cracker"), grew up in the Lakeland highlands and attended Bartow High School before joining the US Navy for adventure and a technical education. Post-military education accomplishments include a BS from Rollins College, Winter Park, majoring in science and mathematics and post-graduate courses in business administration, and numerous career-related courses.

Don decided to pursue a significant career change from Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications in Largo Florida following a lengthy aerospace/defense systems research/development and manufacturing career in engineering and project management; starting with Martin Marietta in Orlando, a brief stance with Southern Bell Telephone, followed by 20 years with Litton Laser Systems in Orlando and 9 years in Tampa Bay. As a professional project manager, he was accountable to his employer and to government and prime contractors for program technical, schedule, and cost performance.

Martha, seizing the opportunity and following in her son's footsteps - a successful Realtor® in Orlando, decided to fulfill a long-standing interest, capitalizing on her extensive sales and customer support background, to pursue a career as a real estate associate. Don volunteered to support the effort and both attended the Florida Real Estate pre-license program provided by St. Petersburg Junior College. Both subsequently obtained their Florida Real Estate Salesperson license and completed the real estate post-license course.
