About Kevin Pollock

I enjoy working with the 55+ community for many reasons. Being 59 this year, I have a lot in common with my 55+ clients. Most of us in this age demographic have experiences and a level of maturity that provides mutual respect and a great professional working dynamic. The actual 55+ communities themselves offer my clients a diverse selection of properties along with community amenities that work well with an active retirement lifestyle. Having everything you want and need as a senior resident all in one place creates an environment of harmony most of us are searching for later in life. I have been a California state licensed Realtor since 2018 and have jumped to the top 1% of all Realtors nationwide. As of July 2023 I have successfully completed and closed over 50 million dollars in business in Orange and San Diego Counties. Approximately 70 percent of my clients are 55+ which created a natural development for me to become a 55+ specialist, although I am certainly not limited to this demographic. I am currently working with HomeSmart Evergreen Realty that employs over 30,000 Real Estate agents across the Country, and I am a current Presidents Club recipient which only recognizes the top 250 agents. In 2021 I ranked #86 nationally and #8 locally here in Orange County out of over 3,500 local agents. The main reason that south Orange County is a great destination for retirees, and the 55+ community in general is due to the weather here in California. Southern California has, arguably, the best weather anywhere in the world, so it’s not hard to see why so many seniors have decided to make this their forever home. When you consider the weather along with the proximity to world class beaches, oceans, incredible retail and restaurant options, you would be hard pressed to find a more attractive place to retire. Also, here in south Orange County we do have one 55+ community specifically that is the largest and most sought-after on the west coast. When thinking about budget, this community offers the lowest pricing of any property options in all of Orange County. Do you have any tips for people who are interested in 55+ communities? When thinking about possibly down-sizing and finding a suitable home to retire, understand that as we age there will be specific criteria to consider: 1. Should you be looking for a property without stairs on a single level? 2. How much space do you really need, smaller homes require less work, effort and typically cost less to maintain. 3. Quick response times from medical professionals, so close proximity to medical facilities is important. 4. Lock it and leave? 55+ communities typically make it more convenient to travel without worrying about your property back home. 5. Social clubs and friends. 55+ communities typically offer the largest consolidation of your peers, so making new, and in some cases, lifelong friends is typically very easy to do. Activities keep us all young at heart, so finding a community that offers activities that specifically speak to you is very important. Get a nice place, we have saved our entire lives and now it’s your turn. As long as you have the means, consider getting what you really want. On a personal note, I am a very honest, patient and reliable individual. I am a former Police Officer, although ultimately choose a different path after 4-years of doing that early on. I am a licensed private pilot and have owned a couple of aircraft in the past, although now I just don’t have the time for that sport anymore, but do miss it. All of my life going back to 1976 when I was just 12-years old, I had my own business.
