Before joining PrivatePlus, Brook was a founding partner and Loan Officer with another major mortgage company. Prior to that he was a Loan Officer for a mortgage company and a Home Equity Loan Manager and Vendor Relationship Manager with Prudential Bank & Trust.

“Realizing that every client is different, Brook prides himself on finding the right loan at the right time,” says Dan Smith, President of PrivatePlus. “He believes in building relationships with each of his clients by helping them evaluate all of their options. By doing so, they can make informed decisions and achieve their desired goals.”

Originally from Hampden, MA, Brook moved to Atlanta in 1995 by way of the Florida Keys. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire where he majored in Communications and minored in Political Science.

“It is extremely important to have the right loan originator,” he says. “Someone who will guide clients through the process and not promise them things that aren’t attainable. For me it’s more about providing customized mortgage services based on the wants and needs of each client. Also, I think it’s important that clients know that it’s not always about the lowest rate but what it will cost them to get that rate.”
