W Brian Brook is a Licensed Mortgage Originator and senior advisor for Ocean Lending based out of the Palm Desert. Office.
10 years ago, Brian was enjoying life as a retired businessman when then the Great Recession of 2008 “rolled in” bringing with it financial and emotional pain. It took a while for him to shrug off the “woe is me” syndrome but then, he started to look at ways to reinvent himself. This was a daunting task as he was already a “Seenager” (Definition - any person over 62).
The question faced was “What was he to do the rest of his life?
This question was answered when he received a flyer inviting him to a seminar to hear about Ocean Lending. He went to the seminar (the lunch was good too) and he soon realized that he had found his calling.
Moving forward, Brian sold the family home of 23 years and purchased another home using the reverse mortgage program. In his words, it made sense. He went to work as an underpaid, overworked apprentice, studying his new-found profession, passing Federal and State exams and successfully became a licensed loan originator.
“Practice what you preach” came easy, the Ocean Lending business allowed Brian to be able to help himself and this in turn led to him helping others. His great passion is to help his clients achieve greater financial security and enjoy life through prudent financial planning and the retirement mortgage program.
When Brian is not to glued to the computer doing quotes for clients he spends time working around the house, swimming, learning Spanish, and trying very hard not to be the worst pool player in California.
