Kathleen is absolutely amazing. I would recommend her and her team to anyone. I have bought a house with her, sold two, and built one. She was beyond helpful with everything start to finish. When buying my first home I needed to be in by a deadline and when it looked like it was going to be delayed, she made sure the outside agencies got on schedule. She sold my husbands house in literally just 3 days and mine in only 3 weeks. The most helpful however was during the building process. When the builder would mess up or not address our concerns, she would jump in. She didn't let them bully us into just accepting anything and even got us several big upgrades for free. Less ... More

We were lucky enough to find Kathleen for our relocation to OKC. She not only met but exceeded our expectations by far! She knocked it out of the park! She is professional and personable at the same time. I can't say enough good things about her. We highly recommend Kathleen for any of your real estate needs! You won't be sorry!!

We called Kathleen's office when we were looking for a house in Oklahoma City. Since we were first time homebuyers she gave us great advice on how to start! She referred us to a great lender and then showed us MANY homes before we found our dream home! She helped us find a great place in a good neighborhood with good schools for our kids which was very important to us. She made us feel special throughout the whole process and answered all our questions - we had a lot! We would highly recommend Kathleen if you are wanting to purchase a home! Less ... More

I was shocked to read the review below and felt compelled to speak up and relay my own experience working with Kathleen. Just about a year ago I purchased a home to renovate with the help of Kathleen and I can't say enough about the experience and how much she went out of her way to share her knowledge of the process as well as assisting me in determining where my money would best be spent on renovations as well as market sales in the area to ensure I was getting a fair deal. Never did I feel pushed to the side or navigated elsewhere to have a question answered. It is evident in working with Kathleen that she absolutely cares about clients and their well being, enjoys getting to know them and goes to great lengths to protect their interests during the contracting process (plus she's wickedly funny!). Her Office Manager Dorothy was always a joy dealing with, keeping me updated where the process was and never making me feel like a burden with all the questions. Kathleen is an outstanding agent, I'll always rave about my experience and would recommend her in a second. Less ... More

Kathleen has her own agenda. She is very impatient and doesn't like to answer questions. She was rude to us during the whole process. She found renters for our old house and we bought a new house through her. However, the whole experience was negative due to her attitude. Be careful when asking her a question. She might tell you to find out the answers from another source because she is busy showing houses and that is how she makes a living. I would not recommend.

Kathleen and her team did a great job helping us find a home and go through the process of getting a mortgage and closing on a house. As first time home buyers, there was a lot we did not know. Kathleen patiently explained the home finding and buying process as we went. She worked tirelessly to find us the right home. We had a very specific list of what we did and did not want in a house, and had a pretty firm budget. She not only showed us the right kind of houses, but she also respected our budget and did not pressure us to spend more by showing us houses outside of what we could spend. We know we were a more difficult case, as we had 3 different contracts fall through or get rejected, and despite our discouragement, Kathleen stayed optimistic throughout the process and we never felt like we were a nuisance. Even though most of our interaction was with Kathleen personally, when we did work with her staff it was always a positive experience. Everyone was courteous, professional knowledgeable. We never felt "shorted" when we couldn't work with Kathleen because of schedule conflicts. In short, I would highly recommend Kathleen Forrest and her team. As a military family, we anticipate moving to and from Oklahoma City over the next several years, and we plan to keep Kathleen as our realtor, whether we are buying or selling, as long as she is in the business.

Kathleen recently helped us buy our new home in OKC area. She and her team were great about responding to all our questions about the buying process. Since we were buying from out of state she was able to put our mind at ease throughout the entire process from the home search to closing.

I would definitely recommend Kathleen! Her and her staff were very helpful and quick to line up homes for me to see. Once I decided on a home they were extremely attentive and aggressive (as all good realtors should be) on my behalf. Her expertise is very evident when you work with her. Five stars all around.

It has been a pleasure working with Kathleen. I have known her for several years and she always has time to sit down and talk with me about what I need. I have also seen how she responds to all her other clients and I am impressed by her knowledge and willingness to go "the extra mile" for everyone she comes in contact with.

Kathleen recently helped my wife and I purchase our first home. She found us a house that we absolutely love in a great area. As first time home buyers, we were a little nervous, but Kathleen and her team were great about answering all of our questions and making sure that we had all of the information that we needed. She even went out of her way to order extra inspections on our house and get second and even third opinions on potential issues to make sure that we would not run into any problems down the road. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent in the OKC area, especially military families as her husband is a veteran and they understand military specific needs. Less ... More

Kathleen was extremely helpful in our latest house buying effort. She has deep market knowledge of the local area. She also gave good counsel in our negotiations and helped us put together an effective offer. She and her organization were very responsive when we had issues or questions, and she was very persistent with the sellers' agent. We would use her again and highly recommend her to others.

We initially had a Realtor to work with but it was not working out so we started looking for another Realtor. So we came upon Zillow and searched and searched.....and search some more to find the right Realtor and came upon Kathleen and we read over her work and the reviews and we felt that she was it! The same day I contacted Kathleen on Zillow, she sent me a text message the same day and then we spoke the following day and started get things going. We were referred to a mortgage company and when things got tough, she made the impossible POSSIBLE! Loved dealing with Kathleen, Jeff and the whole company. Kathleen and her company was definitely understanding of our work schedule and still able to get us what we wanted. We finally found the home that we have searched high and low for and she put up a good fight to get us what we wanted. So Kathleen, Jeff and to the rest of your company, we just want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. Without your knowledge and help in finding our home, we wouldn't have known what to do with out you. I would definitely recommend Kathleen Forrest to anyone, she knows her stuff, that and my 6 year old son adored her!! :) Less ... More

Kathleen helped me find my house when I initially bought. She was very thorough and knowledgeable and of what i was looking for based on her attentiveness of my ratings on houses that were for sale in the area. So when I gave her the call that I was ready to look, we didn't have to waste time. She had 10 houses picked out for me and we went to all in 1 day and I eventually bought one of those first 10. Selling my house a 4 years later she got me offers in a week and I eventually accepted one of those offers. The process was made very simple for me due to her staff handling everything and just consulting me when needed. Less ... More

She did a great job marketing our house and helped us sell in just a few days. She worked with the buyers and us to get very close to our original asking price, which was higher than the initial offers. Only negative was trying to schedule an inspector after we put a contract down on our new home. It took a bit longer than expected, but they did an excellent job and everything got done on time regardless.

Kathleen Forrest was wonderful to work with. As a first time home buyer, I had hundreds of questions about all manner of things. Kathleen was able to answer the majority of my questions on the spot. When she didn't know the answer, she was able to find out quickly. I understand that Norman, OK is not her usual area of business but she was more than willing to meet with me and help me find out information that might be Norman, OK specific. Although some of Kathleen's staff members did not seem to be as knowledgeable or helpful as Kathleen, Kathleen's abilities and kindness more than made up for this lack. She is a person that you want to go to bat for you in any situation. She and her husband make excellent partners. Both are able to make you feel comfortable with the process and confident in your decision. Less ... More

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 ...

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

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
