Either Forest can’t figure out what he wants to be when he grows up, or he simply loves new challenges. Raised in Cincinnati, Forest earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati while he worked designing industrial dust and fume control systems. After obtaining his MBA, he went to work for IBM selling large computer systems and software. Seeing a market need, Forest set about the building of an industrial and commercial equipment finance company that funded over $1.2 billion of equipment for his clients. He “retired” from that venture, and settled into building and remodeling homes.During this time, Forest has maintained two loves – his college sweetheart, Linda, and Hilton Head Island.
Having vacationed on Hilton Head since 1967, and having owned property here since 1999, his Hilton Head love affair continued to grow. He and Linda made the decision to live here full time in 2007. Not ready to retire, they immediately joined Sea Pines Real Estate as agents, then brokers, and helped form Clark, Cramer & Frank in 2007. He and Linda love beach walks, bike rides, and to dabble at golf. Forest occasionally satisfies his urge to build, and voraciously reads up on the latest trends in design and construction techniques.
He has owned property on Hilton Head from Windmill Harbour to Sea Pines, and sold property all over the Island and in Bluffton. He knows the local real estate market as well as any, and better than most. Forest is adept at real estate finance solutions and the art of negotiation. He would appreciate the chance to help you buy or sell here in his Island paradise.
