    How it all began ....
    The business was formed by its three directors: Kimberley Forte, Susan Wren and Adrian Wren.  After more that 13 years working in large corporate agencies and with business experience spanning 25 years, we decided we could provide a better level of service for ALL of our customers whether buying or selling, letting or renting.  Being an independent agent means that we have the time to get to know our clients and focus on their requirements.

    I found a new home with my owners (Sue and Adrian) when I was only 4 months old and I like to check-up on them in the office from time to time -  I like to lounge on the sofas (when no one is looking!). When I am not working I like to run on Saunton Sands or Exmouth Beach.

      We wouldn't hesitate in using Kim and Forte again
      I just want to say how easy it was selling our property with forte. Kim was excellent, from the very start she felt like a friend of ours and was happy to help in any way she could. She was extremely knowledgeable and efficient with every aspect, from start to finish, making our sale as easy as possible for us. She kept in contact frequently and was right on top of dealing with any questions from both parties. We would like to thank Kim for her advice, if it wasn't for her energy and belief we wouldn't have sold our property for as much as we did - all within a few weeks!
