Forest Residential is owned and operated by an experienced negotiator and market appraiser who has worked in the residential property market for more than a decade; who has appraised, sold, let and progressed to completion all types of residential property in the Essex and the East London area. With experience gained as a negotiator for Douglas Allen (Arun Estates), a market appraiser for Haart (Spicerhaart) and as a sales manager for a highly successful independent agent in London Docklands; your property will be in the hands of an agent who understands your property, your location and the needs of sellers, landlords, buyers, tenants and investors.

Sellers & Landlords – Forest Residential are a small, independent estate and letting agent, which operates online. From your initial enquiry, we offer a free comprehensive market valuation for your sales or rental property, utilising market knowledge and online tools to ensure your property is valued to reflect the current market price. From when you decide to sell, or let your property with us, we use online and mobile technology, social media and our advertising partners to provide nationwide coverage to rival any of our competitors. Our service is personalised to suit your property, our contracts are flexible (in plain English) and we work with your needs and your timeframe. To help your budget, we also ensure that our fees are more competitive than other local agents.

Buyers & Tenants - At Forest Residential we understand what is important to buyers and tenants - transparency, communication and fair treatment.. We do not charge fees to buyers and for tenants we aim to keep our fees as low as possible, fees are set out under Tenants Guide. Our ethos is to treat all people equally regardless of their circumstances and to communicate openly with each buyer, or tenant regarding each property and informed about the sellers, or landlords' situation.

Investors & Developers - Forest Residential will create a tailored package to suit the specific requirements of any investors, or developers interested in selling, or letting their properties. Our experience in your sector means that we understand your needs and the importance of qualified leads and prompt action for any valuations (i.e. part-exchange). We also ensure that there is no cross-over which may affect your current advertising schedule (i.e. duplicate buyers/tenants), by providing prompt responses for each new enquiry in writing. 



Property Ombudsman Sales  Property Ombudsman Lettings 

Bob London

"I first met Sam having having had her contact details passes to me by a family member (who herself met Sam after responding to a leaflet posted through her front door) after I'd had a series of poor experience with large high street lettings agents, one instance of which resulted in legal action regarding lack of contractual performance that left my property damaged to the tune of thousands of pounds.Sam has a lot of experience, both in sales and lettings having previously been employed by the larger agencies before deciding to strike out on her own. I have a number of properties, and have over the years used a number of different lettings agents, none of which I have provided anything like the level of care and service I'm looking for as an owner.With Sam, I genuinely feel she is motivated to the best job possible. Whether that is because she is small, and therefore relies to a great extent on her own reputation, or whether it is just a reflection of her innate professionalism, I have always that Sam is willing to go far beyond that which is necessary to discharge her responsibilities to either me as an owner or my tenants.She is always willing to pick up the phone (even on Sundays!) to discuss anything, and nothing I've ever asked for has been too much. My wife and I have also been fortunate enough to have had the privilege of being invited along to one of Sam's quarterly inspections (yes, she actually does these!) and seen relationship she has with the tenants, so I know she takes the same personal approach with everyone.I have a few properties 50-60 miles away from Forest's offices in Loughton, but will be looking to Sam to manage the for me despite the distance.I cannot recommend her highly enough."
