Brooke Benson is a licensed Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) Specialist with Mutual of Omaha Mortgage. Prior to her current position, Brooke accumulated 9+ years in the mortgage field, including four years as a reverse mortgage consultant and five years working in “forward lending” with Wells Fargo Private Mortgage Banking. During this time she earned numerous distinctions: 1) she was chosen to train Private Bankers and Wealth Management Advisors in the effectiveness of a HECM repayment-deferred line of credit as a retirement planning and cash-flow management tool, 2) she authored an article for the San Antonio Business Journal debunking reverse mortgage myths, 3) she was interviewed for expert advice on HECM in other business journal articles about retirement planning, and 4) she earned Wells Fargo “A Level” underwriting authority in the “forward lending” world. Brooke is well-known as a trusted resource for retirees – she has taught HECM concepts to Certified Financial Planners (CFP’s), Certified Financial Advisors (CFA’s), and Realtor groups in San Antonio, Austin and all across the Rio Grande Valley.  Some of this information Brooke presented in Spanish, her second language. A native San Antonian, Brooke graduated from Vanderbilt University (Tennessee) with a BA and from The University of Texas at Austin with an MA.  She has lived in San Antonio most of her adult life and in her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her five children, reading, cooking, cycling, and goofing around in the yard.  She has traveled extensively in Mexico, South America and Europe. She serves locally as a board member for several non-profit organizations.  Brooke can be reached at (210) 910-6559 or bbenson@mutualmortgage.com.
