"When we were looking for a home in the Oklahoma City / Edmond area, we contacted Kathleen Forrest for her help. We had a list of desires for our future home and Kathleen sought out various possibilities that encompassed our idea of a home. She saved us time and money by matching a lender to our specific financial needs. Kathleen really listened and worked endlessly to put us into our home. Kathleen was very insightful and handled potential problems with ease and accuracy. We value her expertise and professionalism so much that we recommend her services to our family and our friends. We have bought multiple properties with her help and we are currently looking to buy another! Kathleen is the only realtor for our growing family." - Major Anthony & Mandy Ehnes
"I'm a simpleminded Air Force guy so forgive the verbiage and bluntness. BOTTOM LINE: Kathleen gets it done! She knows the area like the back of her hand. She can tell you which neighborhood is perfect for families and which should be avoided for one reason or another. She knows the builders. In fact some of the builders use Kathleen to buy THIER houses!
"I moved to Oklahoma with the intention of buying a home and although I knew the general area I wanted to buy in, I was unsure of the process as I was a first time home buyer. I started with a real estate agent who was not very helpful and not reassuring me through the process. I got a recommendation to call Kathleen and when I called her, I was still unclear if I was going to leave the agent I had been working with. Kathleen was aware of that but she still answered all my questions and even gave me advice on how to handle a home that I was planning to bid on with the other agent. Seeing how helpful, intelligent, and organized she was it was clear to me that she was the perfect agent for me. She immediately recognized my concerns, interests, and long term home strategy and adjusted her search based on that. Since I was not particularly happy with the house the other agent had tried to sell me on, she showed me several homes over several days. Recognizing that I was budget focused, she took the extra effort to break down the budget for every price range. She made me feel extremely comfortable and always gave me a straight answer. Once I found the perfect home that I had no reservations about, she was aggressive in getting me exactly what I wanted. It came down to a bid war, but still she was able to get me the best contract when I didn't think that my budget would win out over other potential offers. Even after the deal was done, Kathleen followed up with me and made sure everything was in order. I now live in a beautiful home that I enjoy every day. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. I wouldn't recommend anyone other than Kathleen, especially for nervous first time home buyers. I truly believe Kathleen cares about every client and treats real estate as a relationship, not just a business transaction."--Lt Christina Norbygaard
"Kathleen sold our home when we were living in another state. We were overwhelmed with moving to Kansas and not having our house sold in Oklahoma. It was difficult making double house and utility payments. We had listed with another realtor for the first three months and when after three months our house was still not sold we felt very discouraged. A friend recommended Kathleen after she had sold their home quickly. She had also helped them find their dream home where they are currently living. They commented on her strong motivation and professionalism. >From the first day we talked to Kathleen we knew we had made the right decision of listing our house with her. She told us from day one that she could sell our home and we believed her. She and her staff kept us updated daily with phone calls and e-mails, and they provided helpful feedback for us. Three weeks after listing with Kathleen she had a contract on our home and we closed shortly afterwards. It was such a relief to have a good advocate for us in Oklahoma when we couldn't be there to oversee things. She and her friendly, professional staff handled EVERYTHING and we are so appreciative of that. Thank you Kathleen, Sabrina and Tracy for helping us during a stressful time. We are recommending you to everyone we know in Oklahoma!" - Ken and Laurie Brooks
"We were working with another realtor in the area and not having too much luck finding a new home, I ran across Kathleen's ad and gave her a call. We met the next weekend to look for some houses. We were VERY impressed by the detail she showed in finding the right place for our family. She provided us an information sheet for each house we visited, making it easier for us to jot down our likes/dislikes for the home and made it easier to remember the ones we wanted to take a second look at. All the preparation she put into helping us find a house was very comforting. We are very pleased with the home we purchased with her help and every chance I get, I refer anyone looking for a realtor to Kathleen...they won't be disappointed either!!" - Dennis and Helen Macy
"My experience with the Forrest Team was awesome! They all worked together to help me purchase my first home. I had many questions puchasing a new home and they were more than willing to answer them. Kathleen went through hoops to get me what I wanted. I was also really pleased with the amount of research she put together for me. I'm extremely greatful for that because she saved me a lot of headache in the end. I would recommend Kathleen ANY DAY to a friend willing to purchase a house." – Lt. Reina Serineo
"Kathleen helped us buy a house sight unseen! We were relocating to the OKC area and didn't have time to house shop. She listened to our needs, communicated daily, and took pictures and videos of the homes she found for us. I had heard nightmares of all the things that could go wrong while buying a house. Our experience was awesome. No other agent we talked to spent so much time paying attention to our needs. We would highly recommend Kathleen."
-Major James and Shelley Donkin
"Kathleen helped with every aspect of our home buying. She not only sent us a booklet with features of the OKC area, she assisted us in getting preapproved, figured payments, and went the extra mile helping us find people to take care of our lawn until we could get there. Attention to detail and the customer service we received was amazing. We recommend her to everyone we know." -Capt. Jon and Julie Grimm
"Kathleen helped me purchase my first home. I really didn't have a high opinion of realtors, but Kathleen took the time to educate me on every aspect and directed me through a special finance program since I would be here only 3 years. I felt she went the extra mile to look out for me and make sure I got the best deal. Her team makes you feel special whether you are a first time home buyer or a repeat buyer. I have recommended six friends to Kathleen who have used Kathleen in the last year." – Capt. Eric Farqhaur
“When we decided to become homeowners, I was dreaded the thought of dealing with a realtor. I had no respect for the vocation and wasn’t trusting of anyone in real estate. After my time working with Kathleen and her team, my opinion has drastically changed. After our first meeting with Kathleen it was obvious that she was an expert of the business and more importantly, first time home buyers. Kathleen and her staff answered every question with detailed knowledge and straightforwardness in a timely manner. I truly believe she had my best interests in mind at all times. Kathleen and Shannon took the time to get to know Eddie and me; and sometimes we weren’t at our best - purchasing your first home is very stressful at times! We were consistently treated with patience, understanding and respect. Looking back from the time we met until closing, I am EXTREMELY thankful for Kathleen Forrest. I honestly don’t know where we would be without her. She truly sets the standard in this industry and we are very fortunate to claim her as our realtor.” – Emily Rothrock Hayward
