My name is Bambi Jo Sanders. I'm a 9 year old Miniature Pinscher!! My Mom, Tammy Sanders is a Realtor and we live in the subdivision Beacon Woods you ask about and we both are very familiar with Sentry Oats.
There are very distintive differences between the two. Just by answering a few simple questions you'll know which neighborhood will suit you. One questions is, do you have a dog or children? That is very important in choosing the correct neighborhood. Some have more squirrels than others. Traffic is also important.
Oh looks like Mom is off the phone, so let her take over......
Hi Michele, Tammy here. Bambi Jo is correct, we have lived in Beacon Woods since 1998 and we love it but depending on your needs Sentry Oats may work as well. I've been in the Real Estate business for over 23 years. I'm happy to work for you in your search for a perfect home. Because I live in the neighborhood I know the homes well, not just on paper or stats. If I could have 5 minutes of your time I could tell you which neighborhood would be a better fit. No obligation! I'm looking forward to speaking with you.

Good Morning and welcome to Wilmington, soon I hope! Have you visited our wonderful and welcoming town? There are so many communities that offer different living opportunities...and you have chosen two great ones! Depending on what you are looking for, Beacon Woods is more centrally located to cultural amenities and Sentry Oaks is closer to beach activities. The good news is that both are within a few miles of all that Wilmington has to offer. Happy to help you with any Wilmington specifics! Please feel free to log onto http://www.IntracoastalRealty.com for detailed neighborhood info!
Good luck with your search!
Thanks for your interest in Wonderful Wilmington!
I noticed that you have been looking into the move to Wilmington for awhile. My wife and I work with relocation buyers on a regular basis. Having made 5 moves across state lines we realize the complex issues that can arise. Now as far as the two neighborhoods you are looking at. They are both great areas, we live within a few minutes of either one and have all of the stats you will need to make a good decision.

Both neighborhoods are similiar in price point and age. The difference is how close you are to major shopping, the size of the neighborhood, and the demographics. Below is a link to Sentry Oaks. Beacon Woods will be added soon. Both neighborhoods have their strengths and weaknesses. Feel free to contact Pam or me and we will be glad to give you more detail and a tour next time you visit.

Beacon woods is about a mile or so north of Sentry Oaks. It currently has 7 homes on the market ranging from 209K-242K. They were built 1996-1998. HOA is $25/mo. I'm not as familiar with this neighborhood but I do live nearby and I recommend this part of town. It's not quite as busy as the northern end of town and you're much closer to Carolina and Kure beaches which I prefer over Wrigthsbille Beach.
One of my partners has put together a cool website with information on many of the neighborhoods in Wilmington, Check it out at focusmattersrealty.com.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
