About Forefront

I would like to introduce you to Forefront Real Estate, locally owned and operated by me, Michael Paredes.

After 20 years within the industry, I founded the agency to provide a service that ensures my clients are looked after from start to finish of every transaction. The sort of personal service that the real estate industry often seems to fall short on.

Growing up in a large family, the sense, and values of what a home truly means was instilled in me at a very young age This is something that I extend to not just my own family, but also to my business.

Over the past 20 years I have experienced the many changes Melbourne has gone through. This, combined with my exceptional industry knowledge and passion for customer service are what I hope will allow me to become me an invaluable partner when it comes to real estate.

Please feel free to contact me by email or phone to discuss your current and future needs for both Sales & Property Management.

“So, if you are looking to rent, sell, buy, or re-locate in Melbourne or whether you are a first home buyer or looking to extend your property portfolio, you can draw on my expertise, passion, and commitment to enable you to live your dream.”

Just putting it out there but you are by far the best Property Manager we have had in the last 5 years - your communication has been amazing.  

The previous PMs never returned calls or emails, so you are a breath of fresh air!!

Maybe it’s because it is your own business, regardless thumps up to you

I can easily say that now I have a more positive attitude towards real estate agents after my dealings with Michael Paredes and Forefront Real Estate Group.

You were always reachable and followed up on every detail and any queries we had, not like others. Most estate agents won’t pay attention to rental properties or tenants as they usually focus on buyers or sellers.

As a tenant I highly recommend Forefront Real Estate Group especially if you’re after honesty, professionalism and efficiency. Thank you Michael, your professional yet friendly manner at all times was greatly appreciated.

Noah Ozkan - Tenant

Dealing with Forefront was one of the easiest and smoothest experiences we have had. My partner and I wanted to start searching for our first home and really didn’t know where to start.

Michael made this process simple, was extremely helpful and listened to our needs & especially our budget with realistic options for our first home while still providing quality service.

I couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend Michael.

Ceren Guvenbas - Home Buyer

I have been extremely pleased with your attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process.

Leasing a house is a stressful occurrence for anyone and you have helped to make it as smooth as possible for us.

We feel that you truly go beyond the general duties of a real estate agent with thorough follow ups, reporting and always being ‘on top’ of potential tenants. Also, exhausting all avenues to find that buyer has been obvious to us.

Hayley - Landlord

Forefront Real Estate has been great and given me peace of mind that my property is in safe hands.

I was frustrated with the level of service provided from other agents but Forefront really delivers 100% of the time.

If you’re looking for a change to the better I highly recommend you give Michael and the Forefront team a go.
