Our history

We’re proud to be South Australia’s first mortgage broker, continuing on our traditions into a promising future.

Bernie Lewis

Bernie Lewis was an entrepreneur, a visionary, the pioneer of mortgage broking in South Australia, he was also a family man. 

He recognised that there was a need to provide expert home loan advice with far greater choice than what one bank would offer you. Choosing the right home loan was hard work and confusing – Bernie thought there had to be a better way. With this vision in mind, he established what is now known as Bernie Lewis Home Loans.

Sadly, in 2005 both Bernie and his wife, Christine, died tragically in a plane crash in New Zealand. At that time, their son Mark took over as Managing Director, ensuring the Bernie Lewis name and legacy continued on for years to come.

We carried our traditions through the years

Bernie Lewis has been a mainstay of the mortgage lending and financial services industry in Adelaide, South Australia since 1987.

Bernie Lewis Home Loans grew into one of the most recognised and respected names in the finance industry and a household name when it comes to home loan advice.

The values Bernie stood for carried on through the next generation as we continued to offer homebuyers and homeowners greater choice while our partnerships and offerings expanded into a new era. 

Our promising future

Scott Matthews is the new Owner and Managing Director of Bernie Lewis Home Loans, and we are thrilled to have him lead us forward into a very promising future.

Scott joined us in 2021, becoming sole owner at the start of 2022. He has injected new life into Bernie Lewis Home Loans in the form of a new home at 68 Greenhill Road, Wayville SA.

With Scott’s standing as one of the country’s top brokers, he has added further expertise, knowledge and leadership to our already formidable team. We are well positioned to remain at the forefront of lending services in Adelaide and beyond for years to come.
