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!

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!

James is on outstanding guy. He hustled to get my loan approved and we had 3 weeks to spare when we got the clear to close. This is my second time doing business with James. Once on a refinance and this time on a home purchase. If I ever need to buy another home I will not hesitate to contact James first.
