Broker / Co-Owner
As a licensed real estate agent since 1998 I have a vast knowledge and experience in lending and real estate in the Southern California marketplace. Specializing in working with Buyer’s and Seller’s, Bank Owned, Short Sale, and Corporate Owned 1-4 unit properties in South Orange County. In 2005 I received my broker’s license and formed GreenTree Properties as a local Real Estate boutique in San Clemente.
We have grown our office by hand picking only the best agents. Our company is based on the belief that our customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. We measure our success through the satisfaction of our clients.
What’s a fun fact about you that most people don’t know about?
At the age of 12, I worked part time at the pet store. I saw they had a shortage of bunny rabbits so I decided to raise/breed rabbits at home (my parents were thrilled). Needless to say, selling rabbits to the local pet stores was far more profitable than working there. I got bit by the entrepreneurial bug.
What’s your real estate superpower?
Hands down, Customer Service. I am with my clients from day 1 to the close of escrow, handling every aspect of the transaction. I truly feel that this is the key to a successful real estate business.
Why work with GreenTree properties?
We’ve worked hard to create a culture of people that are truly enjoyable and inspiring. With regular collaboration, we all continue to learn and grow in real estate.
On a Friday night, I am…

I have transacted over $7M in real estate now with several brokers/realtors over the years. I have to say that Kevin is absolutely the best I have ever worked with. He is intelligent, knowledgeable, and professional and I think he got me the best price for my home at the time. But the thing that stuck out the most with Kevin was how far he was wiling to go to help me through the entire process. He went way beyond the call of duty. I have now also used his services to find a temporary rental while I look for another home to purchase. And I am of course using Kevin for that as well. I will continue to use his services in the future and I strongly recommend him.

My experience with Kevin Hood on the sale of our property was excellent. Despite our delicate situation he was professional, understanding, accommodating and solution driven. There is not one part of the process that did not go according to the plan and timeline laid out during our initial meetings. I would highly recommend Kevin Hood to anyone considering a real estate transaction. In an industry filled with slime balls, it’s nice to work with one of the good guys!!! Kudos to Kevin and the entire GreenTree Properties team.

Kevin offers exceptional service, combining deep knowledge of the SoCal market with unmatched personal commitment to his clients. I was particularly pleased with Kevin’s ability to manage and close complex transactions, requiring minimal effort from the client side. I strongly recommend Kevin and The Greentree team to prospective buyers or sellers.

Kevin was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is knowledgeable, flexible, and kept his sense of humor throughout. Kevin’s friendly, calm manner promoted confidence and trust on our part. He helped us to sell our home quickly, and at a price that we were pleased with. We would absolutely work with Kevin again, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and personable realtor.

After my wife and I fell in love with the gorgeous Ashton area of Forster Ranch, we made two offers on two different homes. We were devastated when we didn’t get an accepted offer on either home. Kevin then took the initiative and literally went door to door in this neighborhood looking to see if anyone was interested in selling their home. He knew my wife and I didn’t want to live anywhere else. Because of his ability to think outside the box and go well above and beyond, he was able to find someone who was considering selling. Long story short, we now live in the area of our dreams where our 1 year old daughter can grow up on a street with plenty of other kids to play with. This is all thanks to Kevin Hood. Thank you! 🙂

Kevin and his team “specificity JT” are professional and fully understand the market. They are not trying to get a listing and take a free ride like so many others that we interviewed. They marketed our property as I would have expected a Million plus property should have been marketed. Kevin will be the only agent we use in our future investment opportunities.
