Brooks Snowbird Nation

Brooks Maschmeier

“The Prospector”

Co-Founder of Snowbird Nation brokered by eXp Realty.

Brooks was born in the Midwest and originally hails from Cincinnati, Ohio.  He made his way to Arizona with a multi-year lay-over in the bucolic setting around Fort Collins, Colorado and throughout this time, has been an entrepreneur since he was 14 years old.  Being a bit of an adventure and sport junkie early on, one of his first jobs was serving as a soccer referee.  Not one for a traditional career, he has been boot-strapping his way to success thriving in early positions in landscaping, grocery store cashier-dairy stocker, pizza delivery and yes, even a “dew whipper” on a golf course.  (Feel free to ask him about that experience and its relation to Zen Meditation, lol).  While in college, beginning at Colorado State University and later at Arizona State University, he worked his way through as a home painting company salesperson, a chef for Boston Market (for the great food) as well as at a Biker bar (for the great music)! When he was not building food creations, he was engaged in house framing in construction and building homes.

While completing his BS in Recreation, Hospitality, and Tourism, Brooks coupled his love for the environment, homes and people by starting and managing two very successful ventures: A solar panel  installation company capitalizing on Arizona sun energy for planet conscious home owners, and an electric bicycle generator company for those who desired to produce energy for their homes while exercising at the same time. 

Taking the profits from the sale of these companies, Brooks, ventured into Real Estate in Arizona and began investing and managing both long term and short-term rentals (VRBO and Airbnb ventures).  This followed with many requesting his coaching and assistance in picking and managing the same kind of properties for his investor friends and acquaintances. As a result of this capital success, Brooks made the leap into obtaining his real estate license to specialize in the market and offer his knowledge and expertise in Vacation Rental properties, Second home acquisition, and New Construction.

Still an environmentalist, Brooks enjoys being outside.  He is an adventure junkie that can still be found out hiking, biking, kayaking and GOLD mining, yes, gold mining in the Arizona desert!

Brooks is a single father whose daughter recently started college herself in Colorado, following in dad’s footsteps.  Together they love the multi-diversity of culture, theater, museums and an unnatural attraction to goat videos on the internet (the same way others look at cat videos?)

He is a people person and a consummate extravert, viewing his real estate career as a license to socialize.  Whether you are looking for your first home or your alternative vacation home, you are invited to call him.   He is one of Snowbird Nation’s team members that can locate and achieve property goals with deals that never hit the internet.   Call him to not miss out on that perfect new home right next door (or across the country)!
