What My Clients say about Me:
Michael is, by far, the best realtor I have worked with. He is extremely proactive in taking steps to both find you the right home, but more importantly help you get it. Living remotely, Michael managed all the "leg work" required around inspections, obtaining elevation certificates, and obtaining general information needed to close. Michael was always readily available and provides very quick answers to questions. He stayed on top of the closing process and ensured I knew what to do and by when. This was very helpful never having purchased a home in Florida. Additionally, Michael took the time to show me the local area and key points of interest. I highly recommend using Michael as your realtor!

My family and I were relocating to the Tampa area from out of state and hadn't had much luck with finding a good realtor. I ran across Michael's advertisement and gave him a call. From there on out he was always available and ready to work. He closely listened to our wants and needs and immediately began sending listings and setting up times to view. One thing that made Mike truly great from other agents is the fact that he did not limit his work to a specific area. Coming from another state left us unsure about what each area had to offer and mike worked diligently to help us find that special place. Michael was never pushy and made the entire process enjoyable. He worked through all the paperwork and delays of a short sale for us and kept us informed through each and every step. I can honestly say that there are not too many left like Michael out there. You couldn't find someone with better communication or a stronger work ethic. He will go the extra mile! My husband and I will recommend him to anyone ever looking for a home or sale and we could never thank him enough for putting in his extra time and efforts.

Texas...Now a Floridian(Myakka City)
We are out-of-state buyers, moving to the area. We had very little knowledge of the area, or of the home buying process. Mr. Simpkins spent months working with us via e-mail, answering our myriad of questions and offering us invaluable advice about what to look for in our potential new home. Once we narrowed down our search, we made arrangements to fly down for one weekend, as that was all that our work schedules would allow. It seemed an impossible thing to pull off in one weekend, but he was totally prepared for us. We looked at 23 homes, IN ONE DAY!! Yes, 23!! He had printed each of the listings we had selected, and had checklists and spaces for notes and questions on the back of each one. We had all planned for a twelve hour day of marathon home showings. We finished in 8 hours! We made an offer on our favorite home that evening, and we accepted a counter-offer the next day at noon!Timothy and Lisa Hassam Maine....Now a Floridian(Port Richey)
Mr. Simpkins was absolutely amazing to us throughout the entire process! He was extremely professional, yet always personal. He was responsive and always accessible, even at very odd hours! He made what could have been the overwhelmingly daunting task of buying a new home nearly seamless!
Not only would we recommend Mr. Simpkins to others, we have already done so, several times! He is, quite simply, THE BEST!!
We flew in from Pa. and had pre-arranged everything with Mike Simpkins. All the information we requested was waiting at our hotel. The following day Mike took us around the entire Tampa area and surrounding communities. We viewed over 14 houses. His knowledge and understanding of the real estate market is invaluable. I have yet to meet a real estate agent as dedicated and forthright as Mike.Eric LevinePA

We looked at many different builders and were overwhelmed with all the options. Mike took the time we needed to make a good decision on our new house. He knew we were frustrated and needed time to think. I felt like he really cared about what we wanted. I'll tell everyone to see Mike.....Thank you Mike
Overall positive experience. Very knowledgable and professional. Took care of my needs and answered all my questions in a timely matter. I would highly recommend Mike for anyone looking for a new home
