Lew Forrest



Joined P&P Team: January 2022

Trading the pastures of Northern California for the plains of Eastern Oklahoma has provided a more peaceful place to continue Lew’s hobbies of hunting and fishing, while spending time in nature with his wife and best friend, Marti. After serving 14 years in the Army, he now dedicates time volunteering in the community, often at the Chamber of Commerce, American Legion, Veteran organizations, or the local Food Bank. In his spare time, you might find him obsessing over his latest craftsmanship project as a blacksmith and bladesmith.

When it comes to serving his real estate clients, Lew is all in, working with the utmost integrity. He isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work, always adding a few laughs along the way. His goal is to make the business of buying a house as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. He never loses sight of the big picture that purchasing a home is one of the most significant emotional decisions most people will make. 

As a Military Relocation Professional®, Lew especially enjoys helping veterans achieve their real estate goals. His years of living on and tending land give him a wealth of knowledge of septic systems, wells, mold remediation, and the intricacies of rural living. With over 100 transactions in a productive California real estate firm, he’s committed to bringing his high level of compassionate customer service to partner with his Oklahoma clients. You won’t find anyone more invested in your investment than Lew.

What Lew’s Clients Are Saying

Lew reminds me of the kind of realtor that we had way back in the good old days when people actually cared
about the welfare of their clients. He takes great pride in his work and is a man of his word. People like Lew
don’t come around very often so if you get the pleasure of working with him and his team you will see what I
mean. If he tells you he’s going to do something, you better believe he’s going to do it. I have worked with
realtor’s in the past who would say one thing and do another. I cannot say enough about Lew and his
amazing team. They truly made the whole home buying experience an enjoyable one!


Lew Forest is a hands on full service realtor who handled everything from beginning to end in great detail. He
located services for the repairs and upgrades that were needed to sell the house. Lew attended the repairs
giving access to the house so that I didn't have to miss time from work or deal with stresses on my busy
schedule. He addressed every detail and even put his own elbow grease into it. I couldn't have hoped for a
better result!


Lew Forrest has been my family’s real estate agent for years. Most recently, he helped me sell my mom’s home after she was diagnosed with Alzheimers in the middle of COVID. A remote sale on my part, Lew brought new meaning to the term full service realtor. He not only was instrumental in carrying out the sale, he also helped with arranging and supervising movers, and finding contractors and landscapers. He even did some of the work himself. In the end, he created a comparison chart of my buyers; all with offers over asking. From start to finish, Lew was a solid communicator, good listener, and attentive to details. Because of this, never once was there a panic, concern, or surprise. He is dedicated, honest, and with an integrity and compassion often missing in such an important and personal life event. I full-heartedly recommend Lew to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you Lew.

In spite of the many challenges faced on the road to our first home, Lew provided great service and support
throughout the entire process, and was happy to be a part of the adventure. He answered all of our
questions, and requests in a more than timely fashion. I'm beyond grateful to have been accompanied
throughout the entire process by such a professional and honorable man, and someone that I am proud to
call my friend. I am recommending Lew to everyone I know looking for a realtor in the area.

It is with gratefulness, that I write these words to support the positive sales experience I had with Lew. He
carries himself with ease and although I am sure there were challenges along the way, he never let on, so
that on my end, it appeared as though it was an extremely easy sales transaction. This is the 4th home I
have sold, and this was by far the easiest and most positive experience I have had.

I would recommend Lew Forrest to anyone who is looking to sell their home, as he truly cares about you and
what you are trying to achieve. You are not just a number or a commission, as he is great at developing an
easy rapport, and showing you that he cares about what you are trying to accomplish. He is a great listener,
but also great at giving you a reality check and helping you establish realistic expectations for the process.
Huge appreciation for how he helped me and my family!

I have watched property sales in my neighborhood (Arrowhead Estates) for a couple of years now. Porches and Pastures Real Estate is always #1 in property listings and sales. Working with Lew Forrest, a Porches and Pastures associate, I understand why. He went the extra mile to get the best representation of my property. I believe Lew and the other associates are backed by owners that go the extra mile. That creates a warm, happy, friendly and honest atmosphere that clients believe in and are not disappointed!
