Sherwood Strickland is a Wilmington native with a unique perspective and experience in real estate sales, construction and development. A second generation realtor, he has worked in Residential and Commercial real estate for more than 17 years and knows the Greater Wilmington market like no other. This local expertise is what enables him to offer a superior level of service to all of his clients, from high net worth individuals and empty nesters to first-time homebuyers and investors. Sherwood’s passion for the coastal community makes it easy for him to understand why his clients want to call this area home and motivates him to help new clients discover all that Southeastern North Carolina has to offer.

Sherwood and his wife/partner Diane work together and comprise the Sherwood Strickland Group. They each bring their own unique strengths to the process of selling and buying a home. Sherwood works closely with buyers and sellers and uses his 20 year construction background, eye for detail, and business acumen to guide his clients to make quick but informed decisions. Diane is a research expert and her knowledge of current and past inventories, area trends in valuation, and time-on-the-market are key data points for both buyers and sellers. Sherwood and Diane are both Certified Master Negotiators, a distinction that only 24 REALTORS® in the state of North Carolina can claim. Sherwood is also a CARTUS, AFFINITY-HES & NFCU Certified Agent and is uniquely qualified to assist relocation clients transitioning into or out of the Cape Fear area.

Sherwood and Diane’s business philosophy is simple: “we never want to be the biggest…we want to be the best.” The Sherwood Group would rather serve 50 clients to the highest level than 100 clients who do not feel 100% fulfilled. Sherwood and Diane promise to go the extra mile, create solid relationships, and bring their own personal style, client sensitivity and innovative ideas to ensure that each client receives an exceptional experience.

In their leisure time, Sherwood is a sports enthusiast and a retired body builder who still actively trains and understands the value of discipline. He is proud to hold the 2010 title "Mr. North Carolina" State Bodybuilding Champion. He and Diane enjoy the coastal lifestyle and can often be found enjoying family, friends and long walks with their Bernese Mountain dog, Samson.

We began looking for a place in Wilmington nearly five years ago. We found the Stricklands on line began our relationship.
Though we had not yet sold our home in NJ, we scheduled a trip to Wilmington to meet with the Stricklands. Diane and Sherwood identified a number of houses for us to look at, though we were not ready to buy. This process continued for a few years and multiple trips to Wilmington. All the time Sherwood and Diane were seeing what we liked and didn’t like about the houses. They spent an extraordinary amount of time with us and we didn’t feel any pressure from them.
Sherwood offered to find us a good realtor to sell our NJ house. He ended up connecting us with one of the top realtors in our area. She eventually sold the house for us. We had moved to our condo in Florida and were ready to buy in Wilmington.
We returned to Wilmington and the Stricklands identified more houses for us to see. We had brought our dog with us. We finally found one we liked and made an offer. When the engineering report came back with some negative comments, I told Diane that I didn’t want to go through with the deal. They were very helpful in getting me out of the deal and recovering money I had put up in the process. They did not try to convince me to go through with the purchase.
They continued to look for our house. Sometimes we would receive a call and Sherwood would walk us through a house via facetime. On our next trip, they found a house which really met our specs. We discussed the value and the comps with the Stricklands. We made an offer which, after some negotiations, was accepted.
Diane connected us with a legal team to represent us. She also took care of the inspections, surveys and all the formalities connected with the purchase. We were back in Florida while she continued to contact us regarding all the details. We closed in about 20 days with everything taken care of. Diane also sent me a list of contacts for all the required utility and service changes. It was all very painless. We didn’t have to go to the closing. They had all the required documents available for signing on line. After moving in, we unpacked hundreds of boxes and had a ton of packing materials. The movers were ready to charge us to remove them but Diane found someone who was self packing, who came to pick up all the boxes and padding. What a relief. They even bought us a dinner at a nice local restaurant.
This is the third house we have purchased. We have had good experiences with our realtors. However, the Stricklands were really an exceptional group. They took care of every detail from finding the house to negotiating, to closing and more. They seemed prepared to show us properties endlessly, and without pressure, until we found what we were looking for. If you’re looking for property in the Wilmington area, these are the people you want to work with.

We came across quite a few bumps in the road with our sale and our purchase. Sherwood and Diane made that very easy to overcome. I’m not sure many realtors could’ve done what they did to get us to close on time. Great experience!

Sherwood and Diane were very professional and friendly. They got an offer on our house in two weeks. They made a stressful process easy to deal with and guided us through everything from showings to inspections to closing.

I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a realtor in Wilmington.
