Duke Pyle literally grew up in the lending industry. "My father was a Regional VP for a finance company and I knew early on what I wanted to do when I grew up!" Widely respected as a hard working, honest loan officer. Success has been a constant partner. "I was honored when asked to work with Academy Mortgage Corporation, a well respected mortgage bank that is leading the industry in turn times, service and marketing efforts." he said proudly.Passionate about what he does and having the reputation of being one of the hardest working professionals in the business, Duke is well-known as an intense 'marketing guru' who goes above and beyond 'the extra mile'. An unparalleled combination of experience, enthusiasm, education, integrity and commitment has catapulted him into the realm of the industry's top producers - and that is where he intends to stay.Duke's greatest pleasures in life is spending quality time with his three children; "Finding a good balance is so important", he says. "Just as loving whatever it is that you do in life." And it is obvious to anyone that this highly successful real estate dynamo does love what he does, even if he jokingly says he sometimes feels like a doctor on call. "I never know when my phone is going to ring, but that's what I'm here for and that's what I'm good at - striving to meet my clients' needs." "Helping my clients to achieve their dreams gives me great satisfaction and happiness because I know that I am helping to make a difference in their world and mine."No brokering, no middleman, no messing around! At Academy, we are the mortgage banker, WE are the lender. We originate, process, underwrite and fund our loans locally, in OUR office."OPENING DOORS AND CLOSING LOANS EVERY DAY"

"My husband and I bought a short sale home. With all of the changes in the market, we needed someone who was trustworthy as well as knowledgeable about the mortgage business. Duke was outstanding in his worth ethic, diligence and ability to think outside the box on extremely short notice. If it had not been for his business savy in this area, I doubt if we would have hung in there until the deal was closed. I recommend him highly to anyone who needs a no-nonsense, ethical guy. He'll finance your house like it was his own. Thanks again Duke!!!"

"My husband and I recently purchased a new home, and Duke assisted us in brokering the loan. He worked hard to search for the best rates out there and made sure to keep our costs at a minimum. He partnered with us through the entire process, and was even present when we signed our closing documents at the title agency. We highly recommend Duke as your loan consultant." Jeanette A"If you want excellent follow up, client interaction, and the utmost professionalism, then there is no real choice in the lending business other than Duke Pyle. His exemplary performance has come through time and again for my clients, from fast-response loan approval letters to getting loan docs done. If you want to buy or refi, Duke is the loan officer for you."
Matt D, Realtor

 "I have worked with many lenders and providers of financial services over the years and there are only a handful I would refer business to. Duke Pyle is one of those trusted resources. Although the mortgage industry has had its up and downs, he has stayed the course tried and true."Doug B "Duke Pyle has proven himself head and shoulders above his peers in the current very difficult lending environment. I recommend Duke to my clients because he is not only an expert in his field but he also has that rare personality that everyone feels comfortable working with. He is always 'UP" and cheerful - a delight to work with - trustworty - and gets the job DONE! I highly recommend Duke Pyle!! He is a WINNER!"
