About Me

From their Ann Arbor office across from the Big House, John R. Simpkins and his fellow Level One Bank team have developed quite a reputation over the years. As evident by reviews published on the internet, it’s a solid reputation. For the past 20 years, whether it’s been print or digital, John’s clients continue to bring up the same qualities: his knowledge, positivity, and attention to details.

“John explained the entire home buying purchase to me in detail. I felt through the entire purchase he was someone I could trust to partner with on this big purchase,” wrote one client on Zillow’s website.

John’s mission to provide a solution to each client based on their individual lifestyle has been a staple in his work ethic for the past 20 years in the mortgage industry. His inherent compassion, coupled with extensive expert knowledge of the industry, allows clients to not only understand the process but to feel reassured at every step. An Ann Arbor client wrote on Zillow, “We’ve used John and his team for three mortgages. He kept us informed on what was happening and what to expect, making it the easiest housing transactions we’ve ever experienced.” 

From home purchases to refinancing, John enthusiastically and expertly navigates the process while keeping clients informed. His expertise includes new construction, conventional, FHA, first-time home buyers, jumbo, USDA, and VA loans.

Without the referrals, reviews, and recommendations of clients, there would be no reputation or story to tell. John and his team thank all past and current clients for their business and their honest feedback and promise to continue the hard work with new clients.

Client Testimonials

John and his team did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable and well informed every step of the way. They went above and beyond to make the process go as smoothly as possible and did an excellent job of communicating. As first time home buyers, we could not have asked for a better experience!

I was very happy with the service I received from John and his crew. He was very accessible, even after hours, when I had questions. I appreciated their time and effort, but most importantly the final product they delivered that helped my wife an I comfortably walk into a "dream home" scenario.
- Zillow User

John is a very experienced, professional and responsive loan officer who guided us and took the time to answer questions every step of the way. Home buying can be very stressful and filled with pressure but working with John reduced much of that stress. He was always ready and eager to help and guided us from start to finish. Highly recommended.
