About Us.

Forrester Cohen was formed as a compliant property marketplace for Professional Property Advisors to support better Investor Experience.

Our goal is to bring professionalism and transparency to an industry that has been plagued by vested interests and those wishing to just sell property without regard to the client’s best interests.

Back in 2002, a group motivated professional investors set out to formularise the selection of property for the creation of wealth.

The result is now encapsulated in an industry standard training course those wishing to be professional advisors. Some of Australia’s most awarded and acclaimed professionals have been through this course. It is now considered the industry standard for property investment advice and is being taught to advisors of some of Australia’s leading Finance, Planning and Accountancy companies as well as many well-known professionals.
