Delivering More Home For You and How We are Different
How do I do it?
I negotiate for you! So you pay the lowest possible price when you buy. In most cases, I can save you thousands of dollars in the negotiation! This not only includes settling on an excellent sale price, but it also means arranging the best mortgage terms, reducing your closing costs, and getting the home seller to throw in extras and or pay for repairs.
For most, choosing a new home is the biggest financial decision they will ever make. To protect your interests it’s important that you have an agent who’s there for you, and can reduce the anxiety related to the home buying process.
As your agent, my focus is getting you the best possible home at the best possible price. I will work hard not only in finding you potential homes to see, but also in keeping you informed of every step along the way. I’ll negotiate the best prices and terms for you and answer all of your questions as they arise. I’ll be representing you, not the seller. This assures that my experience and expertise in the local market will be used in your best interests during the negotiation process.
I’ll do everything I can to take the stress out of your home buying experience. Including helping you find the right lender, inspector, appraiser, and all the other service providers that make for a smooth and worry-free transaction.
Whether you are a first-time buyer or real estate veteran, I’m ready to help you answer all your questions about the home-buying experience.

From Bill’s Preferred Closing Attorney: I have worked with Bill Forrest doing many of his closings for several years now. Bill is an exceptional and experienced Realtor and Associate Broker with great depth of knowledge in the field. He is also a very hard worker and fierce but fair advocate for his clients, both buyers and sellers. He does whatever he can to help his clients and get them through and even beyond the closing process. He educates them about mortgages, home ownership, tax exemptions and the need for title insurance. In my experience, his clients always leave my closing table feeling cared for and excited about their next phase in life. He is great with both Buyers and Sellers. I highly recommend Bill.

We use Bill to find a renter for our place in Cross Creek. Bill did a great job marketing and found us the perfect tenant in a matter of weeks. I also appreciated Bill doing the background and credit check on the new tenant also.
I have sold and bought one properties using Bill Forest as my realtor. Both proved to be great experiences… highly recommend.

I have known Bill for 15+ years and he has assisted me in the sale and purchase of three homes…. His scope is more than real estate too – he knows so many bankers as well. He also helped me get a better rate on my last purchase in Underwood Hills. Do yourself a favor and allow him to conduct a free market analysis for you…. it will be worth your time. Thanks Bill – we love our new home!

SOLD! Bill Forrest recently sold a condo for my wife and I that is located at Cross Creek in Atlanta and he did an outstanding job. He professionally marketed the unit, managed multiple offers & set a record for Selling price received for that particular size of unit in the area. Thank you Bill- Well Done!

It’s difficult to explain how fortunate I was to select Bill Forrest to sell my house. I had never sold a house before and Bill guided me all the way through the process. He coordinated everything for me and was absolutely fabulous. He focused a lot on marketing and that made all the difference in terms of finding a buyer so quickly. He is so knowledgeable and so calming. When I got a little nervous he was so reassuring and I was then able to relax knowing that he had things under control. I have 2 more houses to sell and I would not consider anyone other than Bill.
