Forrest and his right-hand (wo)man, Ashley, were delightful to work with. Very responsive and always professional - a good team together. Forrest gave opinions when asked, and also provided some thought-provoking suggestions as we discussed various options. If we were buying another lake house we would return to this group and agent, and will be happy to recommend them to others who are looking, or thinking about looking, at lake property.

Forrest Hess was professional, kept his cool, and made an expedited, complicated process of three houses on one property happen!

To say Forrest Hess with the Lakefront Group was a great real estate agent seems like an understatement! We have never worked with another real estate professional who is so attentive and helpful. He was always there to answer our questions and meet with us when we needed him. Forrest also knew when to listen and not offer advice so that we could make the best decision for us. However, he would offer advice when needed. If you are looking for property on the lake, I don’t think you will find another person who is more knowledgeable! We cannot recommend him enough!
~ Ann & Taylor Cotton
Forrest and the LakeFront Group group were amazing. They are experts and know their stuff. They have an incredible team, know how to market, and will sell your house quickly! Don’t call anybody else.

We would like to thank Forrest Hess and his team, especially Ashley for all of the work she did helping us purchase our property. Forrest was very insight while looking at properties. He was able to identify any issues or areas of concern. He knew what we wanted and made every effort to steer us toward the right property. Once we found our perfect property, Forrest and his team worked diligently to get our offer accepted and guide us through the purchasing process. Everyone on Forrest’s team was very creative and responsive throughout the entire experience. Forrest and his team are wonderful, they are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Forrest was a joy to work with. We consider Forrest a part of our family and would definitely recommend him and his team to anyone who is looking to purchase a house or property in the Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay, and Kingsland areas.

I had the pleasure of having Forrest Hess as my realtor for my first house buying experience. Now as a first-time home buyer, I had a lot of questions, to which Forrest responded with extremely knowledgeable and patient answers. He helped us find the perfect home to meet our needs, taught us all about the process, and helped things move along in an extremely timely manner.
The rest of the team was equally as enjoyable to work with. Ashley was very prompt and thorough throughout the whole process, making everything move very smoothly.
Forrest helped make my home-buying experience as stress-free and enjoyable as possible! I will definitely be calling him when purchasing my next home!

Although Forrest was our primary realtor, we also worked with Hunter and other guys from this great team. My husband and I were in search of a 'forever' retirement waterfront home. The process took longer because it was challenging to find exactly what we envisioned. Forrest diligently showed us many properties and respectfully worked within the challenging criteria we placed upon him. We ultimately purchased a wonderful lot and will build. Despite the amount of time it took - not the fault of Lakefront Group - Forrest was always extremely patient, personable and professional. By the end of the process, we considered him family! We highly recommend this hardworking, honest team.

Forrest Hess was as professional a realtor as I could have asked for during my purchase of my lake house on Lake LBJ! He was super responsive and helped me feel very comfortable during the whole process! And his assistant Ashley Buchanan was exceptional as well helping me with every step of the way!! 5 stars to them and a very hearty CHEERS to all the good times ahead at my vacation home thanks to them! :)

Kim and I wanted to express our appreciation for getting our condo sold up on Lake LBJ. It had been with another listing agent with very little interest for nearly a year. After we listed with The Lakefront Group, we immediately noticed the difference in marketing and visibility when it was added to your website. The professional video, multifaceted proactive marketing, and attention to detail ended up getting us several competitive offers right at full asking price and a quick close. Thanks to you and your team!

Forrest was terrific as we went through the process of purchasing a Lake house in a very hot and dynamic market. When an obstacle arose, he was very proactive and had 2-3 suggestions of how to deal with it and he made the process very easy for us. I would highly recommend Forrest and the Lakefront Group!

Forrest grew up on Lake McQueeney where life on the water was his favorite pastime, he enjoyed wakeboarding, water skiing and barefooting. Ultimately, Forrest’s skills developed well, and he won National Wakeboard Championships in his division in 2003 and 2011. Thereafter, he quickly became a professional water-skier at Sea World of San Antonio where he performed for several years. He continues to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as backpacking with his chocolate Labrador retriever, cruising the lakes with family and friends or even training for his next Iron man Triathlon.
Forrest’s analytical mindset led him to receive a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from Texas State University. While attending Texas State University, Forrest purchased his first real estate property which gave him a greater appreciation for the industry. After graduation, Forrest sold Malibu Wakeboard boats for nearly 5 years. This led to a deeper understanding and passion for the lake life. This deep seeded love for real estate and the lake brought him to Waterfront Real Estate. His knowledge and passion for the lakes paired with his strong business acumen allows him to be a valuable asset to his clients who are looking for the perfect waterfront home.
