My Info

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 real estate for more than 18 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 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 construction knowledge, 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 USAA & 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 just want to be the best we can for our clients.” The SS 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 bodybuilder 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, biking and long walks with their Bernese Mountain dog, Samson.

The Strickland team did an amazing job of seeing our purchase through to completion. We had a lot of moving parts, in that we were from out of state. Sherwood and Dianne covered every detail, leading us through every step along the way! We would not hesitate to tap into their expertise again!!

Sherwood and Diane were amazing right for the start. They went above and beyond while trying to sell our home. They were easy to reach and always did what they could to make us happy. They also worked hard to get us the best possible offer on the tile frame that we had. They are both extremely professional and and knowledgeable.

Sherwood and Diane were amazing to work with throughout the home buying process. They both had amazing knowledge of the local area and were able to provide fantastic insight on what properties were a good value, and others that were overpriced. We were buying during the COVID-19 outbreak, and Sherwood was able and willing to remotely show us any and all properties. After closing Sherwood maintained contact with us and made sure to make a couple trips to our property, as we were not able to move in until a couple weeks after closing. We would highly recommend anyone in the Wilmington or Hampstead area to work with Sherwood and Diane.
