I work in the real estate industry, and approached Forrest thinking I would be able to take myself through most of the homebuying process, and would only rely on him for a few administrative tasks. Little did I know. Forrest provided me with listings suiting my needs, introduced me to a mortgage broker who saved me thousands on my mortgage, negotiated with the seller’s agent, prepared the purchase documents (including a few clauses I wouldn’t have included, that saved me thousands when the seller was difficult on a few items), and read years worth of strata & engineering documents. I felt a lot better about my purchase knowing that together we had done thorough due diligence and gotten the best possible price (and a last minute adjustment in my favour!).

Thank you for your help with the recent purchase of our condo! We are really happy with the new place. You were wonderful to work with throughout the house hunting and purchasing phases. We appreciated your attention to detail, your friendly attitude, and especially your ability to work with a very difficult seller on our final purchase. It was also great that you brought ideas that were a bit outside the box. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family!

Forrest Missar is not just a realtor, he’s a home buyer's advocate: patient, personable, persistent and supportive. He listened carefully to our needs in terms of neighbourhoods, price and aesthetics, and never pressured us to compromise. When we finally found the place we were looking for, Forrest moved quickly and negotiated a purchase price in our favour - below assessment! If you’re wading through the Vancouver real estate market, you definitely want Forrest on your side.

When I started looking for my first home I had a long (confusing) list of what I thought I wanted. To be honest, I didn’t really know what I wanted, and I certainly didn’t know where to start. Forrest was so patient with me even though I changed my mind nearly everyday. Every time I changed my must have list, Forrest would have new listings ready for me to see. He turned something daunting and terrifying into something fun, relaxed, and pressure-free. I really don’t know why people say buying a home is stressful; maybe they just didn’t have the right agent. Even a year after living in my house, Forrest still checks in to make sure I am happy. It is that kind of care for his clients that makes him someone I recommend.

When I decided to sell my apartment Forrest promptly had a buyer and made it very easy process all the paperwork. We got a good value for the apartment with little impact on my time. Other Realtors had listings that had been up for many months but within a few weeks the apartment was sold and the paperwork was finalized. I'd recommend him to anyone who wants a professional Realtor to serve their Real Estate needs.

A wonderful, fantastic and helpful realtor.
In selling my house he was helpful in suggesting the sale price with no demands, but at the end it was my choice in deciding on the price.
When comes to buying the new place he was there to show the unit to me with no problems.
Any information I needed about a new unit on sale. He will make an effort to find all the information.
I would recommend Forrest Missar for your next realtor.

Having just moved from London, UK, we thought we were prepared for the craziness of purchasing a new home in Vancouver. Little did we know! Forrest did a fantastic job of introducing us to the Vancouver market. We had high hopes and exacting standards. Luckily, we had someone in our corner who was calm and personable who helped guide us through the process of finding the right home for our family. We’ve been living in our new home for over a year now and can unreservedly say that the location and the space are perfect! Thanks again, Forrest

Forrest Missar helped me to find a flat last year. After discussing my budget and what it was I was looking for, Forrest set up appointments to see quite a few places. He was very patient with me and listened closely to what I had in mind. His attitude was always very positive and upbeat and he offered a lot of very good advice. He eventually found me a wonderful one bedroom suite in a fantastic building. I couldn't be happier with it. In addition to helping me find the flat, he also arranged for me to speak with a Mortgage Broker and a Notary Public; both of whom were very professional and wonderful to work with. Forrest still checks in from time to time to see how I'm getting on. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a place to buy.

I had a very specific idea in mind of what I was looking for, and it was a long journey to find it! Forrest was very patient and stuck with me until I found the perfect place - he knew I wasn't willing to settle, so he wasn't going to settle either. When we did find the perfect place, Forrest presnted our offer in person and ensured that we were victorious in a multiple offer situation. I've been in my place for a year now and I'm loving it!

A friend of mine recommended Forrest Missar to me when I decided to sell my house in Vancouver. He helped make the house presentable and helped beyond what I would have expected of an "average realtor".
The house looked so nice after his team helped make it so presentable that I almost did not want to move. He gave me good advice on correctly pricing my place and it sold quickly for a price that I was very satisfied with.
I would recommend him to any prospective client to either sell or buy.

Mr. Missar displayed outstanding accountability, professionalism, and most importantly responsive, friendly cooperation when dealing with a post-possession clean-up issue that spiralled quickly upwards in cost. Fantastic example of how a true professional handles issues, whether they come up before or after the ink on the paycheque is dry! Thank you Forrest, looking forward to the next one!

My husband and I were looking for a home for quite some time, my husband had visited other properties with Forest and really loved his energy and attention to detail.
Forests advice was invaluable, when we finally purchased our house, and guess what.. we bought the house for a ridiculously great deal. Forest is always available to help you through the process, he always made us feel important and helped us find out all the information we needed to know. This was an unbelievable positive experience. Thank you Forest for helping us get such a wonderful property and deal.

Forrest helped us sell our previous home and buy our new one. Our previous place was on the market with another agent for the year before with only one offer which we were not happy with. Forrest sold our home in a week and helped us negotiate a fair price. With the purchase of our current home, Forrest was great! He showed us many, many options in various parts of Greater Vancouver. He carefully considered our needs when buying a home and was patient with our requests. It was a real pleasure working with Forrest. He will be our go-to realtor from now on.
