Managing Director

William Forrest began his real estate career in Oklahoma City as the founder of the multi-family specialty with CBRE in 1985. At CBRE, William and his team were responsible for sale of over 400 multi-family assets totaling 72,000 units and more than $1.8 billion in consideration.
