She made the entire house purchasing process very enjoyable. I would definately use her again for my realty need. Her staff is extremely helpful. She really cares about what you are looking for and goes above and beyond for her client.

Kathleen and her husband worked with us to find the best home for us. We saw several homes in the area and she was able to set us up with a few that were fresh on the market and not even online yet. We were very pleased with our experience with her and her team and would recommend her to someone else. Closing included gifts, food, champagne, and personal touches. Thanks, KF team!

Kathleen was the most amazing realtor my husband and I have ever worked with. She makes herself readily available and goes out of her way to do what's best for her clients. Not only was she professional and intelligent, but she was a blast to look at houses with. She gets to know you and what you're looking for quickly, which makes the process that much faster when buying a house. She also sold our house for us a couple of years later and made the process a lot easier on us knowing that we had to move unexpectedly and with short notice. Kathleen is absolutely amazing. Less ...

I met Kathleen Forrest through a friend of mine after she sold him a house. I logged onto her website and created an account to shop for properties and I was immediately called (at 10PM) to see if they could help me. I was floored by how quickly they got to me. Setting up a time to look at houses was so easy and it happened very quickly because I was on a compressed schedule because my rental contract was ending in 45 days. I met her at her house in Edmond and she drove my wife and I (along with her Husband, Jeff, who is her business partner) to various homes based on our initial input to some of her listings from her website. She provided us with a packet that had every home we selected and it allowed us to rate the homes using pros and cons. She even bought us lunch, which I was not expecting. Her intuition was unreal as she very quickly learned what we both liked and did not like. By the end of the afternoon we were in Moore and no longer using our list because she had her listings almost memorized. In about 4 hours she walked us into our future home and we were floored with how she nailed even the smallest details, like a tub big enough for my 6' 3" frame. She negotiated our offer with the builder (Mashburn) and ended up getting us our garage door openers for free (not standard with this home) which saved us about 1 grand. She also negotiated no closing costs for us which saved us around 5 grand. Our final walk-through was amazing. She caught things I would have never thought twice about. Imperfections in the paint and chips in the windows and got the builders to fix all of it before our closing deadline. She stayed with us every step of the way and it really paid off big time when she sat through the closing process with us and made sure we understood everything that was required of us as buyers and would not let us sign until we knew what the papers said and meant. She even helped us find home owners insurance and a home warranty that extended our warranty for almost 10 years. She even took the time out to show up to our house warming party, which is what I would consider going well above and beyond the normal call of duty. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Kathleen Forrest, and she is always the first person I recommend when someone is looking for an agent. Less ... More

Without a doubt one of the best choices we ever made was selecting Kathleen Forrest and her team to help us purchase our home! Within a few minutes of working with them you know you made the right choice. They know how to treat a client better than anyone we have ever been around before and very quick to respond to your questions/concerns. If you work with this team, hopefully you will, you will know what we are talking about and you too will fill like you are the only client on their list (when there are very many they deal with daily!)....that is how well they work with you. Very friendly, thoughtful, and emotional about how well they perform for you! This is exactly the type of personnel you want to assist you when you are making a big decision on a home. R.E. Less ...

Kathleen is the personnafication of professionalism. She told us everything that would happen from A to Z. Everything went exactly as she said it would. In this lousy home sales economy, she sold our house 7 days after it was listed. I can't express enough how professional and competent her firm runs. After doing our homework, we were told by other people that have used her how efficient she is....I am a true believer of everything I was told.

I tell everyone that I know that is in the market for a home about Kathleen. She truly made my first time buying a home an easy one. Being able to work with someone that dedicates their time to you, and only you, makes this big step easier to work through. I was very busy with work at the time I was buying my home, and had no idea what I was doing. The best part was that I didn't have to know, because Kathleen did, and guided me through every step of the process. I also love how Kathleen maintains contact with all her clients. By doing this, she makes everyone feel as though they are more than just a "customer", that she not only made an impact on her clients life but they made an impact on hers. Less ... More

Being a first time home buyer, I didn't know what to expect. Upon meeting Kathleen and her getting to know me, I felt very comfortable with her knowledge and expertise. She took me under her wing and helped through all the process, working very hard for me to get what was needed and some. She has a GREAT personality and is very caring. She listens to your needs and wants, then finds what is BEST suit for you within your price range. She goes that extra mile. When I sold that house, Kathleen was the right person for me to go back to. She properly advised with getting the house staged to sell and worked extremely hard to get the most for the house which sold in a short period of time. In February, 2009, I called her once again to ask for her assistance in selling and purchasing a house in Lawrence and Topeka, KS. She made phone calls and emails for us, then returned a phone call to us within 2 days with recommendations of agents in Topeka. With her assistance we were able to find an agent that was similar to Kathleen that was able to assist with selling the house in Lawrence and buying a house in Topeka in May, 2009. Again giving that helpful hand, even though miles away. KATHLEEN IS SUPER, AWESOME! SHE IS THE BEST, AND CARES ABOUT YOU, THE CUSTOMER. Best of luck! Jo Less ... More

I was told to call Kathleen by a friend and it was the best thing I ever did. I only had a week to find a house before I had to report back to work in Florida and when I got to Oklahoma Kathleen and her entire team was there waiting for me. As busy as Kathleen was she made me feel like I was the only person she was worried about. She showed me what seemed like 100 houses and when I started to feel like I wouldn't find anything I wanted she always kept a positive attitude. I felt like I was wasting her time. She did find me a house with 2 days to spare and got the bid and paperwork done before I had to return to Florida. I could not get back to Oklahoma for the closing but she had it all taken care of. When I finally got here she had the keys in hand and I was able to stay in my new house the first day I was in town. It was wonderful knowing that there were good people here to rely on. Kathleen and her team are like family now and I send anyone who is buying or selling a house to them. You can never go wrong putting your future in their hands. Less ... More

My husband and I are Military and first time home buyers. We were relocating to another state, when Kathleen came highly recommended to us. We needed to find a house fast in order for our daughter to attend the best public schools. Kathleen was dedicated from the start to the finish with helping us make one of the biggest decisions in investing in a home. She listened to what was important to US and made everything an individual and unique experience. When it came time for us to ship out and move over seas... she sold our house in RECORD time when the housing market was terrible for sellers. She was able to sell our house with no problems in under a month!!! She gets the job done efficiently and without error. She is without a doubt the best! I would recommend her to anyone! Less ...

Kathleen came highly recommended to me by a friend when I first moved to Oklahoma. I began slowly looking for houses and Kathleen was very patient with me and helped me search until I found the perfect place. I was a first time home buyer and very nervous about the whole process. Kathleen took the time to answer every question I had and she even tamed my parents' worries about getting me into my first home. She is a fantastic negotiator and most importantly she was my advocate insuring that I received the best deal possible. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell...she is the BEST!!!

I purchased a home and then sold a home through Kathleen and my experience both times was nothing short of spectacular! Her knowledge and negotiating skills made the process EASY both times! I will definitely use her in the future and I recommend her to every person I know that is in the house selling/buying market.

Even during the toughest market times, Kathleen was able to sell our house! We listed our house anticipating the worst because of the economic downturn, but Kathleen and her team really exceeded our expectations. Kathleen goes above and beyond the duties of a Realtor; each of her listings receives a tailored analysis, market strategy and plan-of-action, which helped differentiate our property from other comparable listings. Had we gone with any other Realtor, our house may still be on the market, as we saw many homes around us that didn't sell. Less ... More

Impressive knowledge of the area. VERY helpful with military members and able to cater to all requests. She was able to help us sell our home after we got orders and had left the country. She had great ideas to help sell our home at a time when competition was everywhere AND get full asking price! Will ABSOLUTELY use again.

I bought my first home from Kathleen last year and I must say it was thee best buying experience I have ever had! I was very nervous at first (had zero experience 'home' buying before), thinking I had to do all this research, etc, but Kathleen provided all the information I needed and got me such a GREAT deal on my home (she even got them to throw in more things than I would have thought to ask for :o)!! I recommend Kathleen to ALL my friends and people I come across. Especially since I am in the military, I felt like she took such great care of me and my needs...in fact the house I bought wasn't even on my list, it was a home that Kathleen picked out for me and I fell in love with it the second I saw it! Thank you so much, Kathleen!!! Less ... More

First time home buying can be a scary and very intimidating process. With Kathleen I never felt that she was just "trying to sell me a house". She cared about what I wanted, ensured that I understood the process, and even offered to be with me at the closing to make sure I wasn't lost in all the "paperwork". She was extremely professional, knowledgable and I NEVER had any issues contacting her if I had any questions or issues regarding the house. Kathleen goes above and beyond and I will never look to any other agent when it comes to buying OR selling a home. She was fantastic....but above all else, she made you feel like a part of her family. ~Audry Prince Less ... More

We found Kathleen in the base newspaper and I was glad we did. She went above and beyond in helping us find a house. We were pleased with her professionalism and knowledge of the area. I have referred several folks to her since my initial dealing with her and she has helped them in ther home purchase as well. Anytime I hear of someone coming to this area, I immediatley think of her and try to get her connected with the newcomers, they will NOT be disappointed.
