Pascal and Ana Forest are experienced, insightful, careful listeners, who will always give you a straight answer. Working as a team, Ana & Pascal offer their clients twice as much attention and service. They consistently provide thoughtful, creative guidance, and are sticklers for thorough and timely communication.

Pascal grew up in France, in the beautiful alpine region of Haute Savoie. He studied Economics at the University of Geneva, and after meeting Ana on holiday, he moved to Berkeley to start a life with her in the late 80's. Ana was born in New York City, and grew up mostly in the Bay Area, attended Berkeley public schools, and graduated from UC Berkeley in '87 earning a BA with Honors in Rhetoric. Her travel bug has taken her all over the world, and introduced her to many cultures and people.
Pascal's energy, diverse knowledge, investing savvy, resourcefulness and persistence serve his clients very well. Ana's local heritage, business experience, and calm demeanor, make her the perfect complement for Pascal. Before joining Pascal in Real Estate, Ana spent years as a professional in sales, marketing, corporate communications, negotiations, budgeting and producing videos and events.
