I was born in Ft. Knox, KY. Moved to Columbus, GA in 1967 and have lived here pretty much ever since. I served in the United States Army for 4 years and earned the Army Achievement Medal (2) and the Army Commendation Medal. I have a BBA in Finance from Columbus State University. I am a Federally and State licensed Mortgage Loan Originator in Georgia, Alabama and Florida.. My product offerings include; Conventional, VA, FHA, USDA and Reverse Mortgage loans.

With over 20 years of experience in the mortgage industry one of my most important duties is to educate you on the various mortgage loan programs you qualify for. This will allow you to make an “informed” decision as to the best loan for you. To give you full disclosure on the loan of your choice. No games, gimmicks or hidden fees!

We have used Jame's services on 5 real estate transactions. As long as he is in the business we will not use anyone else. He gets things done!

We used Open Mortage for our original mortgage and chose James Shytle again. One reason we chose James instead of our original mortgage company is because we knew he was always available. I called him often and he got back to me quickly. I was stressed out about the process, but he made it go smoothly and always with a positive attitude. I would recommend James and Open Mortgage to anyone looking to buy or refinance. We got an excellent rate that lowered our monthly payment quite a bit. Great job! Thanks so much.

James did a great job working with us and getting us approved for a loan to build a new home, then changing our minds in the middle and deciding to refinance our home. He took care our every need and made sure we had everything we need gor both loans. It was a pleasure having him take care our loan needs. I recommend to anyone he will get the job done. Thanks James for everything!

James Shytle did a great job for us in securing a cash-out refinance. He described the process we would go through and then walked us step by step to the end. He let us know what he needed in terms of information, and then he did everything he said he would do in a timely manner.

That is my definition of a good job. I would use James and his company again without hesitation.

I really enjoyed working with James Shytle on my first home loan. As a first time home buyer I was unsure of a lot of things but he educated and answered any/all questions I could come up with. My unique situation was, I’m sure a challenge at times for James, but he made sure we closed on time and got us into our home on schedule. We appreciate all his hard work and easiness of working with him. I would highly recommend James Shytle for your mortgage needs!
