Welcome Home, Forrest Heistermann!

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Forrest Heistermann to the Palm Springs South office, located at 2465 East Palm Canyon Drive, Suite 605. Forrest earned his real estate license in 2008 and works with clients throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the communities of Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and Desert Hot Springs. He has been visiting the desert since 1985 and became a full-time resident in 2013, giving him a long familiarity with the Greater Palm Springs Area.

Forrest was introduced to the real estate industry from an early age and knew he was always destined to make it his career. “My stepdad was a real estate broker so I saw what he did and always wanted to do it,” Forrest says. “I studied real estate in college and knew it was exactly where I needed to be.” His favorite aspect of the industry is helping people accomplish their real estate goals and fostering lifelong relationships. “I enjoy meeting new people and talking real estate. There is nothing more gratifying than making a positive impact in someone else’s life through the successful close of a real estate transaction.”

An industry veteran, Forrest has a solid grasp of how to successfully navigate the real estate process to produce for his clients. He approaches each situation with his creative problem-solving skillset and welcomes the unique challenges each client brings. “Attention to detail is the most important component to real estate. I pay attention to what my clients are saying and pick up on the little things they are talking about or implying in their communication. In addition, the small details of a transaction are often the most important. Staying on top of the little things turns into big results,” Forrest adds.

Forrest is also fully committed to providing a smooth process for his clients, going above and beyond the call to ensure he is available to them. Clients and colleagues enjoy Forrest’s friendly personality and good sense of humor, making him a popular figure in the local real estate industry. “Since this is a service-based industry, you have to be available and answer questions as they come up. Honesty and having a great sense of humor are important and go a long way to keeping things productive and enjoyable.”

Beyond his passion for helping people, Forrest is dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals. “I grew up with animals and have always loved them. I have a family member who fosters cats, and I donate to the local shelters to make sure they are well-stocked with supplies,” Forrest adds. He also enjoys hiking our local desert trails, reading, and basketball.

Bennion Deville Homes is the place for Forrest to call home because of the company’s commitment to agent support. He also previously worked with Managing Broker Dean Foster at another real estate firm and was drawn to the opportunity to work with him once more. “Dean is awesome and I am glad to be working with him again at such a fantastic office location. In addition Bennion Deville homes offers outstanding technology and marketing support and I am impressed with our brokerage’s website,” Forrest concludes.

Adds Dean, “Having worked with Forrest for many years, I know the quality of professionalism and outstanding service he brings to the table. He is a perfect fit for our office’s culture and will do well serving his clients with the suite of support services at his disposal. We are excited to welcome him to our Palm Springs South office family.”
