Welcome! Forrest Properties, Inc., was formed in 2004 by its founding principals, Susie and John Forrest. Susie earned her Broker’s license in March of that year, while John has been a licensed Realtor since 1999. Melissa Olen joined Forrest Properties in October 2012. What began as a company that was formed primarily to procure investment properties for the Forrests, over time grew into a full-time business assisting buyers, sellers, distressed homeowners with short sales, investors, 1st time home buyers and seniors who are down-sizing.
Susie and John have a long history of working together. They have been married for 25 years, and for 23 of those years, owned and operated a successful specialty gourmet coffee roastery…Shaky City Coffee, and two retail stores. For the last 10 years, they have focused their energy into growing their full-service real estate brokerage…Forrest Properties. Both have earned the designations of Certified Distressed Property Expert and Certified Investor Agent Specialist. John and Susie are hands-on with their clients, never passing them off to transaction coordinators and will negotiate the best price and terms for their buyers and sellers.
