Forreste Markowitz is a native Houstonian who grew up in Bellaire. She fondly remembers the “small town” feeling she and her neighbors had in the City of Homes.
She went to school at the University of Texas at Austin and obtained a degree in Journalism. She and her husband, Scott raised their twins in Meyerland and Forreste is proud to say that she was a 1986 Bellaire grad and the twins, Max and Brandon were 2016 Bellaire grads.
Forreste became a real estate agent in 2007 and became a broker in 2010 so she could run her own comps and list her own properties. She flipped several homes in the Houston area and helped other investors do the same.
In addition to flipping homes, Forreste has sponsored agents, helped clients find the perfect home or investment, managed real estate brokerages, performed transaction coordination and managed a few rental homes on her own.
In July of 2021, Forreste joined The Freund Group of Compass Real Estate as a sales manager. She is committed to helping the team grow while watching each agent reach his or her full potential.
