Gary Nathan Real Estate BrokerMy wife, Shari, and I have lived in Hayward since 1980. We owned and operated funeral homes in Hayward and Spooner until 1997 when we had the opportunity to make a change in lifestyle. Woodland Developments & Realty was started in 1999 in our home on Grindstone Lake. In 2003, the need for an office in town prompted the development of the Woodland Court office complex on Railroad Street. Our personal service to families through the funeral homes and my community involvement laid the groundwork that has carried over into my current real estate career. I am blessed to have a wonderful support team and work with clients who I truly consider friends. My experiences as an owner of several different businesses and having worked in corporate development and acquisitions, as well as real estate development and sales, gives me added knowledge and expertise. Whether you're looking to sell or buy, I will work hard to make it happen.

Barbara Bolitho Woodland Development & RealtyI have enjoyed living in the Hayward area since 1998 with my husband Jim and three furry kids. I am an accomplished professional Realtor at Woodland Developments & Realty since 2003 as an Accredited Buyer Representative, and I bring a wealth of experience. My prior 25 years working for Naegele Outdoor Advertising as a Certified Professional Secretary for the Naegele family helped strengthen my organization and communication skills to become a highly motivated, committed individual with an excellent work ethic and an enthusiastic approach to all I do which ensures successful results.  I look forward to assisting you in selling or buying your property.

I believe in giving to the Hayward Community: celebrating 10 years at The Park Center as a co-chair volunteer; organizing a monthly Girls Night Out for the area women to socialize and network; and volunteering at the Northwoods Humane Society and Habitat for Humanity. I attend Hayward United Methodist Church, enjoy going to movies, gourmet dinner groups, walking, kayaking & snowshoeing with the Women of the Woods & Water, plus road trips to visit our five grandchildren.
