John Simpkins was born and raised in Washtenaw County. John has lived in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Dexter, Whitmore Lake & Chelsea, but Ann Arbor is home. Being born into a local real estate family business, this industry has always been second nature to John. John attended Michigan Lutheran Seminary and Eastern Michigan University (but is a Wolverine fan!). He began Residential and Commercial Loan Origination at the age of 20 and he has over 16 years of professional real estate and mortgage lending experience.
