My first trip to Wilmington, NC was to confirm that I did want to relocate there as well as choose a realtor that I would trust and that I could work with long distance (moving from California). I had the amazing opportunity to meet Cythnia Strickland and her daughter Cindy and their associate Meghann...and I am telling you, they have helped not ONLY find me the home I really needed in the right neighborhood but they have been so helpful in finding me the right inspectors and painters and landscapers.....they have gone out of their way to treat me like I was family and while I am not family I definitely plan on being their friend. They exceeded every expectation I had in what a realtor team can do for you. I could not have done this without their expertise and their genuine care for what was right for me. They listened to me and cared about my concerns. This is a team you should use-they KNOW Wilmington..they have spent their lives living and loving Wilmington. On my first meeting with Cindy (after meeting another realtor that wanted me to sign an agreement before he would even show me a home) I waited for her to ask me to sign something. At the end of our productive home shopping day, I asked HER if she needed me to sign anything and in her sweet Southern drawl, she replied, "Certainly not! If there is someone else that finds you your perfect home before I do, then I will just be glad for it. In the meantime, we will work to find the house that will become your home." And she did just that.

Working with Cynthia was a fantastic experience. Her in depth local knowledge was a huge benefit for us since we were from out of state. We had a very short time frame to find a home and she delivered. It was like spending time with an old friend and she made you feel like part of the family. She has continued to be a big resource for us even after closing on the property.

08/03/2017 - ERIN KELLEY

Cynthia and Cindy were great! Lots of helpful feedback on important items. I never felt out of touch with the selling process. They were always available when we needed them and a supportive word when we needed it. We would highly recommend their Team.

07/11/2017 - Luke

Cynthia was referred to my wife and I by some family friends who live in the area and we were not disappointed. Cynthia, Cindy and Jerry were very knowledgeable of the area and entire process of buying a home. This was our second home purchase so we weren't completely new to the process, but it sure was nice to have someone so involved in everything, helping at every step of the way.

We purchased a new construction home, but only viewed the build once it was about 80% complete, so most work was done. We chose a few finishes, but not much. Cynthia and her team were and still are very helpful with dealing with the builder and finding other service providers in the area.

We have also considering renting our home for various reasons and purchasing a condo, we will be using Cynthia and her team for our future real estate needs!

04/26/2017 - brad6579

Cynthia listed our home and we had it sold within a few months. She made prompt contact with us during all the transactions from start to finish. She reviewed with us updates we needed to do to the house before we listed it. Cynthia and her team were very professional throughout the whole process and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

04/17/2017 - Sara Temple

Cynthia is the most energetic and knowledgeable realtor I have ever worked with. Even though I have not purchased a home from her, Cynthia helped my sister find and purchase the perfect home for her (where she still resides in 2017) in Wilmington, NC, back in the 1990's when she moved back to North Carolina from the Atlanta, GA area. Cynthia is an enthusiastic "people person" and has a very professional work ethic. She is dedicated to helping her clients find the right home.

04/04/2017 - nicholssan

Cynthia knows her real estate especially in the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area. Cynthia helped me in 2001 find a perfect house. She gets to know her clients and she uses that knowledge to find the best location and home suited to the buyer. Cynthia is a hard working and dedicated agent.

04/02/2017 - cweeks299

Cynthia was very helpful in guiding us through the process of selling this property. This is the second time that she has acted as our agent. The 1st time was about 25 years ago when we were purchasing a new home and then just recently with the sale of our property in Reigelwood, NC. This property was owned by multiple family members and she worked with all to ensure that dealings were handled in a way that everyone was satisfied. She was always available if questions arose and worked to see that our best interests were served.

03/30/2017 - smk106

Both Cynthia and her daughter Cindy, did an excellent job of helping us get our home sold! Even after the sell, they went above and beyond. Nice to know them as a great business team but even better as friends!

03/29/2017 - ltackman2222

Cynthia was extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and completely confident she could sell my house fast. She delivered! She sold my house in 12 days! Even after the contract, the entire closing process went seemless. I would highly recommend her.

03/21/2017 - jamcdonald95

Very professional , polite and knowledgeable, well liked in the community and all together great to work with.on time and easy to schedule an appointment with just overall very satisfied with her and her team.

03/20/2017 - zuser20160725040350197

I have known Cynthia for over 30 years and she has ALWAYS been a person of integrity. She was very helpful in our house selling process. Letting us know up ALL of our options. I always knew she was looking out for our best interest. She knows the area and the people love her!

03/17/2017 - Notyouraveragegirl

Cynthia has a God given gift that centers around the fact "that you can't out give the Lord", which she told me repeatedly. She serves other people as if it were her spiritual gift in one of the most stressful times of their lives. She has been in real estate for decades solely based on referrals from other people who she had helped find a home, or she has sold there home for top dollar. Most importantly, she sincerely cares about her clients and she knows her helping them is her calling.

03/15/2017 - tsa3462

Cynthia and her team helped my son purchase his first house. They were absolutely awesome! Having lived in Wilmington for so long, they are SO knowledgeable about ALL of the areas. Many times they didn't even have to look something up to know whether you should consider it or not! You won't find more professional, kind, determined, helpful, honest folks than Team Strickland! If you are trying to decide which team to work with...CHOOSE TEAM STRICKLAND! You will NOT go wrong! Cynthia, Jerry and Cindy are the BEST!

03/10/2017 - Tony Spada

Worked with The Stricklands for some time and they are straightforward and a pleasure to work with. They strive to get things done right the first time in an efficient and timely manner

03/10/2017 - raquelwilm

Cynthia and her team were very responsive in helping me find a home in my budget in 2005 which, if you remember, was before the collapse. Because of their dedication we were the first to see a home that just came on the market and make an offer before the bidding wars began. If you need a dedicated team on your side call Cynthia Strickland.

03/04/2017 - angermeier1

Cynthia Strickland has listed some of my friends and neighbors homes and were able to sell them in a very short time. Very professional and will go above and beyond to help their clients whether buying or selling their home. I would highly recommend Cynthia Strickland for any real estate transaction.

03/03/2017 - wkgallimore

Cynthia helped me buy and sell my first house in the Masonboro Loop area. She was very helpful and got me great deals for both the purchase and selling.

03/02/2017 - user4096584

Cynthia and her team are extremely nice and easy to work with. She is always there when you need her. Her knowledge of Wilmington is second to none, and she knows how to get the deal done! When we bought our property she met us on Easter Sunday and spent the whole afternoon negotiating with the seller—highly recommend!

03/01/2017 - jedi1165

Team Strickland helped us with three different purchases and sales. They always provided a very professional response to our questions and needs. They treat you like family! I would highly recommend using this team to meet your needs.

02/26/2017 - amandabrookem2012

As a first time home buyer, I was grateful for Cynthia and her team. They knew the Wilmington area very well and was able to show me several homes that fit my list. It was a rough few months of house hunting, but she and her team met with me and worked around my schedule. After making offers on 5 different homes, and 4 of those falling through, Cynthia helped me stay optimistic and encouraged me through stressful times. When issues arose with my mortgage company, Cynthia was able to put me in touch with a mortgage company that processed and approved my loan in no time. As a 22 year old buying a house, her and her husband took me in as one of their children and took great care of me. They gave me good advice and help along the way. I highly recommend her!

02/24/2017 - lwrede5

Cynthia was a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional; helped me find the perfect house for my price range! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

02/23/2017 - annhin1

Cynthia Strickland and associates were fantastic to work with and we found out perfect home. We've lived here for 15 years and would never even consider moving.

02/19/2017 - grannybythesea

Cynthia has been our realtor both in purchasing and selling real estate.
She is always putting her customer first. We give her an A++++++.
You will be glad you chose her.

Thank you Agnes for allowing me to help you, I enjoyed all our time together. You are one patient lady and very KIND!!!!!!!!!

02/17/2017 - JimmyThornton

I've used the Cynthia Strickland team for the sale of one house and the purchase of another. I'm very happy with their responsiveness, courtesy, and thoroughness. You are in good hands with the Strickland team!

Thank You Jimmy!! We love you like family!!!

02/17/2017 - kerriegrant9

Cynthia is a phenomenal realtor. It took her just three days working with us to work out exactly what we wanted. We returned to the northeast and she continued looking. She emailed us with pictures, which I actually didn't find appealing and replied saying this. She insisted it was worth looking at and suggested we fly down and do so before the property went! We did and it was perfect!!

02/16/2017 - kthomas7288

We moved here 5 years ago and Cynthia was fantastic. We encountered some problems with the owner of the home we already had a purchase agreement with and she was masterful at getting us through it. If you want a realtor that is honest and always there for you she is the one! We have a great house and would call Cynthia if we moved again.

02/15/2017 - zuser20141007084728628

Cynthia has helped me buy and sell my homes over the years and always treats her clients like family. I would recommend Cynthia and her team for any needs that you or your family may have!

02/15/2017 - Lyndsey Foster

I am happy to call Cynthia a great friend and a great agent who assisted in the purchase of my first home. She helped with the perfect location according to where I was working. She and I have stayed in contact over the last 3 years and I would recommend her to anyone needing expertise in buying a home.

Lyndsey, thank you for all the fun and I hope we can work together again. You are onestrong women and I have enjoyed becoming your friend!!

02/14/2017 - kejones9

My experience with Cynthia was wonderful. We were able to find a place quick, due to my place selling quickly in Raleigh. I would highly recommend her to friends and relatives.

02/14/2017 - marymclaughlin2007

Cynthia listens to her clients. She is expert at matching what the client wants and showing them appropiate properties, not something the client cannot afford or interested in.
I found Cynthia to be extremely personable and very capable.
I would not hesitate to recommend her as a realtor.

02/13/2017 - Billy Painter

Mrs. Strickland and her team have the most experience by far in the Cape Fear area. They were extremely professional and kept me informed of what was going on at all times.

02/09/2017 - lgeven88

Dealing with Cynthia and her team was a great experience. She knows the Wilmington area well and knows how to get your property sold quickly. She kept us updated on any showings and made the closing process a breeze. I would recommend her and will certainly use her again should the need arise.

02/08/2017 - gregorydavis253

The Strickland group helped us build our dream home. Cynthia and her daughter Cindy were an amazing team to work with. We lived out of state so we were unable to check on our house progress every week, Cynthia and Cindy would go by our home and send us pictures of the progress. They became part of our family, making sure everything we wanted done in our home they made come true. They were able to give us there thoughts and guide us to having everything we would want in our home, before we knew we wanted it. After buying our home Cynthia and Cindy and been there fore us, checking on our home and our family. If your looking for agents that will be working for you and won't stop till you have everything you want then Cynthia and Cindy are the agents for you

02/07/2017 - jodyloucreations

She helped us buy a house and sell a condo as fast as possible. She helped keep us informed during the process and was always available. Cynthia and her team were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a place in Wilmington. We love our new home!

Jody, thank you!! You guys are awesome and we can't wait to see what you do with the house and yard!!!! We had our challenges but I know it was worth it!!! Looking forward to hearing about wedding plans!!! Blessings to You Both!!!!

02/06/2017 - dschoen1

cynthia and her daughter assisted us with purchase of a townhouse. I found her extremely knowledgeable even assisting with local painters, and home repair specialists.

Her staff was very prompt with all aspects of applications, appraisals, and closings

Thank You!! We have enjoyed getting to know you and look forward to seeing a lot ofy'all at the beach this summer!!!!

02/06/2017 - user2637971

The best recommendation is the one that saw us buy our first home here in 1992, then sell that home and move away ten years later, and then 13 years after that move back and want no one but Cynthia Strickland. Past experience is the best indicator of future behavior, and Cynthia is a personable professional whose name is recognized and respected throughout the real estate and home building community of Wilmington.

01/31/2017 - kjseelos

We had an excellent experience with Cynthia and Cindy as buyers and sellers. They have sold 2 homes for us and helped us in purchasing our current home. They went the extra mile with both sales, setting up contractors and other repairs to get any work done that we wanted. We were happy with our selling price for both. One of our homes sold in only 3-4 days. They made things hassle free for our busy family. They are extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I will always use them for any future needs and would highly recommend them.

01/31/2017 - wjordan91079

Mrs Strickland and her daughter make a great team! They are so professional and really go the extra mile to satisfy their clients. This is the 2nd home she has sold for us and her family will be the only agency I will do business with. I can't say enough great things about this team!!

01/30/2017 - jonathandavis589

Cynthia Strickland was the best!!! We love our house, and we recommend that you use the Cynthia Strickland team!!! Thanks you so much for finding this great home for us. We will definitely use them again!!!!

01/29/2017 - Deborah Blanton

Cynthia has been my agent since 2011 when she rescued me from a house in Wilmington. She became a great friend and confidant. Understanding the craziness that was happening at the time and working endlessly to help. I recommended Cynthia to a friend and she found him a wonderful home. When I was ready for the next adventure Cynthia and Cindy found me the perfect condo in Leland and the time came again to sell and I called Cynthia and Cindy again. I would recommend these Ladies to anyone, but they should know that is when the fun begins. I am truly blessed to themas friends..

01/26/2017 - jdnga21

I have attempted to submit  the Zillow but I’m not sure it went in!  I had contacted Zillow to see why this is happening.  However, I though you might appreciate receiving a copy of the statement that i made to them below

"Cynthia Strickland is the finest Real Estate Agent that I have ever had during my life and my purchase and/or sale of nine homes in the US!  She is highly professional, extremely effective and efficient!  Her knowledge, gained over many years of experience in this industry, is of unbelievable value to her clients be they buyers or sellers  Her honesty and integrity in every element of the typical real estate transaction is simply outstanding!  She has worked with me in two sales over the last few years and has demonstrated all of the above!\u201D

Cheers! … … … David

01/24/2017 - rfraserjr

Cynthia has helped us with 4 transactions since 2002.
She and her team have great connections to help finding the right property and recommending qualified contractors for maintenance after the sale.

Best hairdresser in Wilmington!! You are the Best of the Best!!! Thank you both for allowing us to help you find your home, so glad you came back to Wilmington!!!

01/23/2017 - Joseph Lewis

I have known Cynthia Strickland for over 20 years and she has both sold a home for me and most recently assisted my wife and I in the selection and purchase of our current home. Mrs. Strickland and her team (particularly Cindy Connaway) spent many hours and days over several months helping us to find that perfect house. She and Cindy were always gracious and eager to meet our needs....never anything but professional and competent. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending the Cynthia Strickland team to any prospective home buyer (or seller) in the New Hanover-Pender-Brunswick county area.

Thank you for taking the time to review me! I appreciate it and It's a privilege to work with such great people!!!!!! Wishing you many blessings!!

01/22/2017 - TamiSMartin

I have used the Strickland team not only to purchase but also to sell properties. I am always delighted in their degree of commitment to excellence and deliverance.

This purchase was particularly difficult dealing with setbacks, drainage easement constraints, projected adjacent road projects/construction, and dealing with city engineers, North Carolina wetlands conservation, and Army Corps of Engineers. If the Strickland team had not had the years of local knowledge, professional contacts, expert ability and diligence in navigating this difficult closure, I am certain it would not have happened

01/21/2017 - Joyblewis03

Cynthia and Cindy Strickland were our agents when we were looking for our house. After meeting with them once they were able to select homes that they knew we would be interested in. Cynthia knows the area and was able to help us identify exactly what we were searching for. They worked around our schedule to schedule appointments. They negotiated the purchase of our home and we valued their professional advice. They are both amazing ladies and made buying our home a wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing in the purchase of our dream home. If there was a category above Excellent we would have checked that for all of the above. We highly recommend Cynthia and Cindy in your next home purchase or sale. It was such a pleasure to work and laugh with you.
Thank you so much Cynthia and Cindy!!!!
Blessings to you and your families.
Joy Lewis

Joy, you were so much fun to work with, I love you and your love for Jesus and how his light shines so brightly thru you!! Grateful you choose us to be your realtor!!!!

01/20/2017 - CharylHolmesWilliams

Cynthia and her team were phenomenal!!! We couldn't have asked for a better group of people. We met Cynthia when we were looking at another house and knew we had to hire her. We were newly pregnant and needing a place quick and Cynthia and her team sold our house and found us our current house easily and with a lot of laughs! I can't say enough great things about Cynthia!!!

All our clients are favorites but we really enjoyed working with you both! I think we laughed a lot and totally had a wonderful experience together finding that perfect home for you and baby on the way!!! Love you both!!!!

01/20/2017 - steve2090

Cynthia Strickland and her team did a fantastic job of selling my property in a short amount time. Their extensive local knowledge and contacts had them bringing me offers before I was sure I was ready to list it. If you let Cynthia list your property you better be ready to move because she can sell it.

Steve we enjoyed selling Skystasail, the home, the history, a magical place!!! Thank you for allowing us the privilege to work with you in that wonderful sale!!!!!! Blessings to you!!!

01/20/2017 - cpearson73

Cynthia and her team were great to work with. They have a ton of knowledge of the local area and we're able to sell my home at a great price that fit the market perfectly. I recommend Cynthia to anyone I can

Cameron thank you for taking the time to review me! I appreciate it and hope to workwith you again soon. Thank You for choosing me!!! I enjoy every minute I get to talk toyou and hear about your children!!!

01/19/2017 - nealdunaway

Cynthia is a terrific broker! We wanted to sell our family home and so set out to research the top performers in the market. I wanted the best of the best and chose Cynthia. Cynthia and Cindy from Team Strickland met with us and reviewed our home, area comparables and laid out their marketing strategy.
They suggested a list price, got the marketing plan together ASAP and within a week we had an offer for MORE than others had suggested that we list it for!
Throughout the process she offered assistance, and guidance and made this a great experience for my wife and me!

Thank You Neal!! It was my pleasure to work with you and your beautiful wife!! We are very grateful that you allowed us the opportunity to sell your home and buy a new one from us!! You better stay in touch and come to the beach this summer!!! Free Parking!! Love you guys!!!
