Vice President of Mortgage Lending
“The driving force behind all of my actions is to take better care of the borrower,” Jamie Simpson, vice president of mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate, says. “My company provides the best service in the country, giving originators like me the tools to provide clients with an efficient and satisfying experience.”
With that goal in mind, Simpson has become an inspirational success story. He has earned a place in the President’s Club every year since 2005, and in 2009, he was ranked in the top 200 mortgage originators in the Scotsman Guide. Most recently, he was honored as a top producer in the top 1 percent of his industry by Mortgage Executive Magazine. But he doesn’t take all the credit for his success. “The partners on my team – my mortgage consultant, loan coordinator and sales assistant – are the main reasons behind my success,” he says. “I wouldn’t be able to do what I do best without their unwavering support.”
Simpson is currently in the beginning stages of training two junior loan officers who will become part of his team. He looks forward to teaching them more about the business he has come to love.
“My favorite part of my career is the satisfaction I get from solving the various issues that arise during the homebuying or refinance process,” he says. “Every borrower’s situation is different, and being able to assist them in achieving their financial goals is very rewarding.”
When not working, Simpson focuses on spending time with his wife and kids, twin seven-year-old daughters and a two-year-old son, his absolute passions in his life. “If I’m not working, I’m with them,” he says. “Everything I do is for them. I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am, production-wise, without the support of my wife.”
