The assistance and advice given by James Lagudi enabled me to achieve my dream of demolishing, subdividing, selling one block and I am now going to build my home. Something which was quite daunting but is now become a reality. I am very grateful. I recommend Bernie Lewis and in particular, James Lagudi, whenever the opportunity arises.

Tom was very helpful in assisting me with my home loan goals. He made the whole process smooth and easy and added value where I did not expect e.g., getting a better rate for my existing loan and taking care of things while I was overseas.

Paul Schofield enabled my son and I to achieve our goal in obtaining a mortgage and therefore a home. Throughout the procedure he was very informative and used analogies as well as life experience stories. His approach was personable and understanding.

Mark went above and beyond to finalise a difficult application for me. His perseverance and negotiation skills have meant that I can start my extension. As a foster family this meant the world to me and my children. Thank you Mark.

Luisa worked her butt off for this loan! With a short deadline and an unusual request, she had a challenge that she achieved on time and in full.


Unfortunately for James, our requirements changed several times over a 6 month period. He was there ready to accept whatever option we put to him and recommended the best plan available for each. We are very happy with the loan he was able to get us and the rate we ended up with. I would recommend BLHL to anyone looking to buy a home.

The standard of service I received from Vikkie was professional, very attuned to suit my needs, and always helpful and informative. Always contactable and extremely pleasant to deal with.

Tom has been amazing in helping my partner and I purchase our new home. I have and will continue to recommended him to anyone looking for a mortgage. Top bloke, guaranteed to look after you.



Not only did I find Nathan really good to deal with, the feedback I got from conveyancers, banks and solicitors was excellent. Everything was in place and ready to go and he was meticulous in his attention to detail.



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.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you James for everything you have done to achieve our settlements on time. As I mentioned at the start of it all, we had a fair bit of trouble dealing with another Lender who’s mortgage brokers were so unhelpful – it made us really stressed. So when we came to you we were not in the best frame of mind, but you certainly proved us wrong and made it all happen with minimal stress, however, I am sure it caused you a fair bit of grief! In particular, we really appreciated that when problems arose you gave us options to overcome them rather than throwing it in the too hard basket. We were also really happy with your communication and the way you were continuously in touch with us so we were never left wondering.



I have dealt with many financial institutions/agencies over the years and this particular house purchase was extremely stressful mainly due to difficulty I experienced from parties involved in the process. Not only was Cindy knowledgeable and professional, being my only efficient party in this process, she was extremely supportive, going beyond the call of duty… thank you.

Firstly thank you for all you have done for us. One of my smartest moves was to get Scott to look after our loans. As I look at the position we are now in with our business, we don’t have one single bit of debt left on it. I can well recognise what got us in the position or underpinned us to get there. The first part was to get my own loans right, which we did. The result has been greater wealth creation in the last few years with our investment property, our holiday house, and our home. Picking up the phone that day and calling you was one of the best things I have done, I can’t thank you enough.

Vikkie was amazing. She was lovely and did everything she could to work within our deadlines. She made the process feel so much simpler as she was organised. We will definitely be recommending her to friends and family.

Tom is brilliant, friendly, personal and great at explaining things clearly without making you feel like an idiot, no question was too much or too silly. His warmth, honesty and efficiency was so important, as a solo first home buyer having someone like Tom in my team was fantastic.
