Kevin Hood was a wonderful real estate agent & helped us get a home that we absolutely love! I found him while searching online because his name was linked to a short-sale property about which I was interested as he is an REO licensed agent. After leaving message with several San Clemente agents, Kevin was the only one who called back & left a detailed message with information about the property rather than requiring a call back to talk in person first. I liked him right away for that! Once we started working with him, he set us up with automatic updates on any new properties to come on the market & faithfully met with us to look at prospective homes. We were very picky & he was always patient with us! His connections in the community were the reason we were able to get a short-sale home at an amazing price before it was snatched up by other bidders. He was always available for questions all the way through the lengthy short-sale process and made the escrow process a breeze! I highly recommend Kevin Hood & would use him again if we ever decide to buy another home!
