Mortgage & Finance Broker
Jason Garrett is a stand-up guy with a genuine knack to make you laugh whilst simultaneously feeling totally at ease with his lending expertise and compassionate service. He is definitely a football (soccer) tragic, and loves being on the pitch playing or coaching his youngest son from the sideline. Jason is a hospitable family man who enjoys cooking up a storm and indulging in a glass of red with friends. When given the chance, Jason and his family often travel back to the UK and Ireland to catch up with their relatives from the motherland. Jason has 3 teenage children, yet somehow still manages to attack his role as broker with energy and a smile.
Hailing from the UK, Jason started his finance and banking career in 1988 with Barclays. He became a mobile mortgage broker in 1997, covering the vast central south area of the UK. Jason emigrated to Australia in 2004 and shortly after was offered a position at Bernie Lewis by the great man himself. We’re extremely lucky to have Jason and his extensive knowledge of the Australian mortgage and finance market, and how we here can be influenced by the trends seen in global markets.
Jason is absolutely an asset to his clients and has a real talent for strategically structuring finance and identifying accurate solutions based on each individual scenario. He’s built a reputation as a man who doesn’t like to forfeit and will leave no stone unturned to find the best option for his clients. Jason is always seeking to further his knowledge of the market, which pays dividends for his clients as he always has the unique loan offerings top of mind. Jason provides a lending experience that eliminates confusion, delivers cost effective solutions, and most importantly leaves you a happy and relaxed homeowner.
Eddie was the one that helped set up the loan and put us in touch with Helen (a BLHL conveyancer)… she too was excellent and super friendly. Later, Jason took over our case and has been there for us with the best possible advice, and will hopefully be there to assist us when it comes time to applying for the first home buyers grant. So, we’re not quite done with Bernie Lewis just yet.
The need to refinance our home loan came in the most stressful time for us having 4 children, a newborn baby and just moved house. I was recommended Jason by a friend and I could not be more appreciative of the service he gave us and how he sorted everything out for us in our best interest. He was professional but friendly, approachable and understood our position. He really listened to us and found a solution that we were comfortable with. Great communication keeping us up to date when the banks were being a bit difficult. Highly recommend Jason from Bernie Lewis.
Bernie Lewis were instrumental in helping us get our first “low deposit” joint mortgage with Homestart (3 years ago) and now when we were ready to re-finance Jason was top of mind when I needed advice and he helped us get to the desired fixed rate mortgage we were after. This has saved us approx. $350 a fortnight in repayments and also allowed us to borrow enough extra to improve the the value of our house further with a new pergola and paving etc.
Since 1990, I have used Bernie Lewis’ services, and have always found their staff to be very professional, compassionate and helpful. There is no slick, fast-talking sales pitch – instead, there is thoughtful, realistic and thorough guidance through the maze of details involved in securing, adjusting and maintaining a mortgage. Special thanks to Jason Garrett for assisting me through some challenging financial times over the past few years – very happy with the end results.
