Bill Forsythe &
Coleen Brennan

The Smith Group
Coldwell Banker Realty

It all started by a chance encounter. Bill Forsythe first met Dave and Coleen Brennan at his company, Yacht Connection, where the couple purchased and campaigned numerous racing yachts. Coleen, a highly respected and successful realtor in Newport Beach, recognized Bill’s strong work ethic and innate skill for helping people make good decisions. Before long, she had convinced him to switch his focus to luxury real estate.

Today, this hard-working, market-savvy team is in its third decade of guiding their clients as they make one of life’s most important decisions. Coleen and Bill have represented both sellers and buyers in more than 1,000 transactions, amassing an impressive sales volume that exceeds $500,000,000.

Coleen and Bill Know The Newport Area Market

We highly recommend the team of Coleen Brennan and Bill Forsythe. We had two excellent prior experiences with Coleen, both times as buyers. This time we were sellers, always challenging for the agents involved. Coleen and Bill did a great job of analyzing the market and arriving at the appropriate listing price. Once we went to the market, they produced a consistent flow of highly qualified buyers to tour our home, resulting in five offers in five weeks. The end result was a very reasonable selling price with a rapid closing and very smooth transaction. Coleen and Bill know the Newport area market extremely well and represent sellers very, very well.

The Best Of What Real Estate Should Be!

Coleen Brennan and her partner Bill Forsythe represent the best of what Real Estate should be: Hungry, experienced, networked, proactive, and fierce protectors of client interests. In our case, they guided us through the sale of a unique oceanfront property. Though a declining market, they got the listing sold in a few short weeks. They stayed with us through ups and downs in the process, providing us color and transparency through interactions with potential buyers and their brokers. They also provided us with updated data along the way and candid advice on the realities of the changing marketplace. They have decades of experience between them and the enthusiasm of a team just getting started. Would highly recommend them to represent a sale or a purchase.
