Brooks was born in Maine and moved to Pennsylvania at the age of 5 where he grew up. He returned to visit family on the lake as often as he could spending summers on at camp. After graduating college with a bachelor’s in Sports Management he and his family started a franchise in the fitness business. The project included buying raw land and building a 30,000 square foot stand-alone building. After several years running the business, Brooks had the itch to get back to New England. The first step in getting back to Maine was a few years in Cambridge, MA as a real estate agent. In addition to real estate sales Brooks also managed rental properties and renovated houses. During his time in Cambridge, he met his wife, also from Maine. The two of them became weekend warriors fighting traffic to enjoy Maine until finally making the jump to Portland in 2015. Upon returning to Maine they purchased a three-unit building on Munjoy Hill and shortly after a single-family home in Back Cove where they now reside with their two-year-old Labrador retriever.
His experience in land development, building, investing, and business management are all a direct benefit to his clients. Brooks is an active member in the Portland community and looks forward to raising a family in our growing city.
In his spare time he can be found enjoying all that Maine has to offer. In the winter he and his wife will most likely be in the Maine mountains skiing. During the summer the two can be found on the lake or ocean and in the woods mountain biking.
