Kelly Forrester: Owner/Founder of Clear Property
Biggest professional achievement to date?
My business journey, as a whole, is my greatest achievement; taking my dreams and aspirations to set up an Estate Agency from nothing, to a thriving, award winning and hugely successful office in prestigious Southernhay.
Best life advice ever received?
Only ever treat others the way you wish to be treated.
Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or uni?
Enjoy life; it’s precious and life experiences make us who we are. If you know what you want from life, chase it; anything is possible. Accept that there will be challenges; it is how you overcome them, and learn from them, that matters.
Which book has had the greatest influence on your life?
Turn the Ship Around, by L David Marquet. It is a true story of turning followers into leaders. I love the way it signifies that everyone should take
accountability for their actions, and people are healthier and happier in a workplace when everyone is a leader.
That no matter who you are or where you come from, you can achieve incredible and amazing things. Always follow your dreams.
“Find something you believe in so hard, that you just smile”

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter fell in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists have each been featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March and April so keep an eye on our Facebook page or website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the #100WomenExeter, you are all amazing!
