History

The principles and values upon which Woodbury Corporation was founded remain the bedrock of our organization today.
For three generations Woodbury Corporation has built a storied organization based on the principles of integrity and hard work.

FOUNDED BY F. ORIN WOODBURY

Woodbury Corporation was founded in 1919 by F. Orin Woodbury. His goal was to build a company by developing and managing a portfolio of well located real estate equities. He saved and reinvested in his company, constantly working to build the cash flow of these equities to increase their value. Through this effort, F. Orin built a reputation in the community as an honest and hard working real estate professional – a man of principle and integrity. In many circumstances, he passed on profitable opportunities in an effort to build a reputation of integrity over income.

WOODBURY CORPORATION HAS BEEN BUILT AS AN ORGANIZATION OF EDUCATED PROFESSIONALS.

AN HONORED PROFESSION

F. Orin Woodbury always felt it was critical that real estate management, development, and brokerage become an honored profession. To further this goal, he became a leader in all real estate circles locally and nationally. He helped develop education programs and professional designations with national real estate organizations and proudly served in many roles, including the national president of the Institute of Real Estate Management.

These footsteps have been followed by those in the Woodbury organization. F. Orin’s son, Wallace R. Woodbury, and his grandsons, O. Randall Woodbury and W. Richards Woodbury, have all served or are serving as leaders today. Each generation has sought to uphold this foundation of education that is critical to professionalism.

IT IS IN DOWN TIMES THAT THIS PROFESSIONALISM TRULY SHINES.

WOODBURY CORPORATION'S SUCCESS HAS BEEN OUR STRONG, EDUCATED LEADERSHIP

Woodbury has traditionally grown when the economy is struggling by developing solutions to difficult problems. Our management skills and expertise have enabled us to make real estate properties profitable.  This expertise continues to benefit us today, as we create successful management and development. Woodbury Corporation has continued to grow despite the past recession.

Our leadership and experience continue to serve us well today. The principals at Woodbury Corporation are focused on building a company and a real estate portfolio through financially sound practices, including reducing debt and improving our properties through the reinvestment of substantial portions of our profits.
