Todd Wood Named Multifamily Influencer

October 7, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) – Christopher Todd Communities CEO Todd Wood has been named a Multifamily Influencer by GlobeSt, the leading source of news, analysis, and intelligence for the real estate community. The honor was announced at the GlobeSt Multifamily conference in Los Angeles.

Wood was an early innovator in what has now grown into one of the hottest real estate segments in the country, Build-To-Rent, disrupting the traditional multifamily industry. His 40-year entrepreneurial career led him to this niche in 2016, after he sold an organic bakery operation that he built from scratch, supplying wholesome bread to major grocers around the country, including Costco and Sam’s Club. When he looked around for his next venture – specifically in real estate which he had dabbled in before – everything looked like white bread. The rental housing product all looked the same. Until he spotted a small community of single-family home rentals.

As Wood reviewed the country’s demographic shifts, he knew the need for rentals would only continue to grow and if he executed this new product the right way, it would be a home run. He did, and it was. The communities are smart gated and comprised of single-story one and two-bedroom pet-friendly homes with smart home technology and private backyards. Resort-inspired community amenities complement the innovative homes. Wood developed his first five communities in the Phoenix metro area and sold them for a record price at the time. Phoenix was ground zero for the Build-To-Rent explosion and Christopher Todd Communities was driving the competitive development.

His communities all start with a strong brand. That brand has more than 600 elements of how to wow the residents – from what the community looks like, what the residents’ entire experience is from the moment they express interest in the community onward. The company is the only one in the Build-To-Rent arena that is undergoing a national expansion with branded communities.
