Art Wood is not your typical mortgage guy…
With a passion for people and for making things happen, Art takes the mortgage process from what could be scary, overwhelming and intimidating, to a seamless and rewarding experience.
Art wants to be your mortgage guy, and not just the guy that worked on your mortgage. He believes in getting to know each and every client as a friend, sorting through available options, and finding the right mortgage fit. Art loves to make people happy and he will go out of the way to make that happen.
He has been in the mortgage business since 2005, and is currently Branch Manager of the Legacy Mortgage Team at Goldwater Bank, N.A., with an office in downtown Tucker, GA.
Art grew up in Tucker, attended Erskine College in South Carolina, and lives in nearby Stone Mountain with his wife Karen and their two young children, Trace and McKenna.
He is the founder of Fuse Networking at Smoke Rise, an active member of the Lilburn Business Association, the Tucker Business Association, and a board member at Smoke Rise Country Club.
Art is also very involved with the community. He leads Sunday worship at Tucker First United Methodist Church (Table 153), and organizes a monthly event, “Pints and Praise,” at Rivals on 5 Restaurant in Stone Mountain to benefit NG3, an organization focused in developing character and providing spiritual growth for high school athletes.
Additionally, Art is one of the main organizers of two acclaimed community events, Taste of Tucker and Tucker’s Chili Cook Off, both benefiting local charities.
It’s all that he does that makes Art Wood who he is: family guy, community guy, and definitely…not your typical mortgage guy.
