Sales and amenities package Still growing strong in Brunswick Forest

Brunswick Forest - Wimington, Real Estate
Star News

By: Brunswick Forest

“Many of Brunswick Forest’s residents say living here is like waking up in a resort every day,” said Jerry Helms, Director of Sales for Brunswick Forest. And those who haven’t said it are likely thinking it.

Proudly holding claim as the “Coastal South’s Fastest-Growing Community,” Brunswick Forest is a 4,500-acre residential retreat just 10 minutes from downtown Wilmington. The amenity list is impressive (see sidebar); on a related note, the sales numbers are astounding.

“We just had the two best sales months in our history,” said Helms. He cited 41 sales in June and 42 in July. So far in 2013, Brunswick Forest has had 189 closings, with nearly 100 more properties under contract. A more important way to look at it, the community has welcomed 1100 families.

Helms explained that the developer put all of the core amenities in place up front, creating not just homes people can move into, but a lifestyle they can begin living from day one. Going forward, more amenities are planned as the community grows.

The master plan allows for amenities to touch the perimeters of Brunswick Forest, supporting the core, centrally located facilities, with inter-connectivity between them. The River Club, for example, continues to phase as Brunswick Forest grows. Amenities range from the spectacular 18-hole golf course, Cape Fear National, to smaller scale touches, such as bocce ball and horseshoes areas in Annsdale Park, especially popular during the community’s outdoor summer concerts.Additionally, The Villages at Brunswick Forest, an on-site commercial center for shopping, dining and medical services, continues to expand to meet residents’ needs and desires. Development began on 7,250 additional square feet of office and retail space earlier this summer.

Pool, Times Two

Ground will soon be broken on a second pool in the Brunswick Forest community, with restrooms, changing rooms, covered pergolas and a fitness room on site. Both the pool and the fitness facility are smaller than the ones at the core amenity, meant to create a pocket retreat beside Hammock Lake in the Shelmore neighborhood. The release of new coastal-inspired homes in that area coincides with the building of the amenities, but they are open to all Brunswick Forest residents.

Because walking and biking are the number one activities (so cited by 93% of the people who tour the development), the new pool will connect to the trail around the lake via a walking path, and a large number of bike racks are factored into the plan.

In addition to a wealth of facilities at a surprisingly affordable price, Brunswick Forest offers approximately 50 different clubs and activities for its residents. “This active adult community creates a very strong bond among people who value healthy lifestyle choices and the opportunity to build friend networks based on mutual interests,” said Helms.

For Example: Pickleball

If you haven’t heard of pickleball, you likely haven’t been to Florida recently. The sport is huge in the Sunshine State, and is quickly spreading up the coast.Spearheaded by resident enthusiasts, pickleball is a significant presence in the Brunswick Forest community—among the first in the area to embrace it. Described as halfway between tennis and Ping-Pong, this new sport in the National Senior Games is played on one end of a tennis court using a net, a hard plastic ball, and paddles in place of racquets.

While the pickleball effort is led by residents, Brunswick Forest’s developer strongly supports its growth. Members of the development team took a trip to Florida several years ago to visit communities with a successful pickleball program, and are currently dedicating multipurpose courts for league and club play. They have also purchased paddles available to would-be players for check out.

Meet You Here

Brunswick Forest invites its residents to jump in and get involved, or just sit back and relax, in equal measure.

And they invite everyone interested in living a resort-like existence to call or come by and see it for themselves.

1,000th Property Sold in Brunswick Forest

Brunswick Forest - Wimington, Real Estate

Star News


By: Brunswick Forest


For Anna and Jimmy Oberto, purchasers of the 1000th property sold in Brunswick Forest, life in the coastal South’s fastest growing community is, indeed, grand.


The Chicago couple has owned a vacation home in Brunswick Forest since 2010, so they are well acquainted with the community. What is new for them is their elegant, soon-to-be-completed residence on the Cape Fear National golf course. Built by Logan Homes, it will become the primary residence for the couple and their sons Chris, 18, and Corey, 15, in July.


“There used to be a Brunswick Forest billboard on Highway 17 that read ‘Welcome Home,’” said Anna, “and every time we came into the community, I would read it aloud. Now, after being part-time residents for years, it feels good to be making the transition to calling Brunswick Forest home full time.”


Successful From The Onset


Launched in 2007, Brunswick Forest defied the national real estate downturn and became an immediate success. The community welcomed its 500th family in just two years, and has continued to grow over the past four years, despite the persistence of a slow market.


“Brunswick Forest boomed during the bust, and so far in 2013, our sales are 50% better than they were in 2012,” said Jerry Helms, Director of Sales for Brunswick Forest. “Both consumer confidence and builder confidence continue to increase as sales remain strong and the developer delivers on every commitment made.”


Living and Loving The Lifestyle


Helms points out that Brunswick Forest’s amenities are not just on the drawing table; they are the center of a very active lifestyle for its residents. “We have approximately 20 homes available right now, from town homes to single family, ranging from 1,600 to 3,300 square feet,” he said. “Even better, we also offer a lifestyle people can start living today.”


While every area of Brunswick Forest has its charms, the decision to build on Cape Fear National was an easy one for the Obertos. “We are all golfers,” explained Anna. “Our motto is: A family that plays together stays together.”


Anna said the family has played numerous golf courses in the area, including many in Myrtle Beach, “however, nothing compares to Cape Fear National,” she said. “The impeccable design provides amazing views throughout the 18 holes, and it is wonderfully well maintained.”


Anna said the family also enjoys the impressive community pool, and the fullservice Fitness and Wellness Center’s extensive exercise equipment, up-to-date classes and social offerings. “Taking advantage of all the center offers will be key to our healthy lifestyles in Brunswick Forest,” said Anna. “There is absolutely something for everyone in this great community.”

Location, Location, Location


Helms said proximity to Wilmington is another of Brunswick Forest’s biggest amenities, a statement that Anna affirms. “There is so much to love about this area,” she said. “The draws were many— great beaches, golf courses galore, ample shopping, excellent healthcare, terrific dining and many cultural activities and community festivals. Other attractions include the overall healthy, outdoor lifestyles and my favorite– the southern hospitality.”


Anna said the family is excited to get involved and meet more of their neighbors. Brunswick Forest has residents from more than 20 states, plus several countries, creating a unique blend of interesting people and perspectives. Helms commented that local interest has been increasing, as well, with more than 25% of Brunswick Forest’s sales in 2012 coming from North Carolina.

“Brunswick County is hot,” he said, “especially as Wilmington has become saturated. When people compare Brunswick Forest with similar communities in New Hanover County in terms of amenities and lifestyle, they see Brunswick Forest as a tremendous value.”


Helms said the development strategy at Brunswick Forest also attracts buyers. “We build in small villages so people are not constantly living in a construction zone,” he said. “It takes more restraint to pursue such controlled growth, but Brunswick Forest has a commitment to show concern for the overall quality of living.” This dedication extends to the preservation of natural areas, as well. Of the 4,800 acres, a large percentage has been set aside as parks and natural areas.


“We feel the lively spirit of Brunswick Forest is a great fit for our lifestyle,” said Anna. “We will retire here for sure and look forward to those years. In the meantime, we can be active year-round, which is a huge benefit of moving south. I remember coming down one winter break and playing football on the beach on New Year’s Day in 70-degree weather. Sure, tradition in Chicago is football in the snow, but we will take beach football any day. Time to break tradition!”


And Brunswick Forest, by all measures, is a grand place to establish new ones.
