Made to measure home loans

The truth is, you don’t want a mortgage – you want a home your family can enjoy. We understand this and work with you to help you achieve your goals. Whether that’s getting onto the property ladder, moving into your dream home, or securing your financial future with an investment property, we create a home loan that suits your circumstances and goals.

With personalised service from a highly experienced and friendly lending manager we want to be different, and uniquely positioned to offer you an incredible level of service and an exclusive range of products.

for life

Mortgageport customers are more than a number. When you come to us for a home loan, you become part of our family. We get to know you and work together to help you reach your goals.

An unrivalled range of options

Our unique approach to lending means we are not restricted to one product and tied to inflexible pricing, we can offer you a whole world of different choices. We’re about creating a home loan that suits you, your lifestyle and your budget. Our team gets to really know you, so we can put together the right product. As a non-bank lender, we approve your loan right here, in-house, which means we can look at the big picture, rather than completing a tick box exercise. Another big difference is our ability to often offer lower interest rates than the big lenders or look at things a bit differently.

Who do we help ?

We don’t really have a ‘typical’ customer, everyone we help is different. We work hard to create a home loan that suits your individual lifestyle and circumstances. That said, our unique approach means we often create loans for people that don’t fit into standard boxes, such as self-employed workers and business owners. People with a more complicated financial situation find we have the flexibility to create bespoke products and approve loans that may not be considered by other lenders.

Our company was founded by Glen Spratt and Michael McKelvie, with a mission that has not changed to this day – looking after our clients over the long term and working hard to earn their respect. Both Glen and Michael are still the backbone of the managing the business to this day and remained dedicated to helping all of Mortgageport’s customers.

Our mortgage management program and relationship with Adelaide Bank was established, which remains an integral part of our business.

We were recognised by BRW as part of their Fast 100 as the fastest growing mortgage provider in Australia

We were one of the few mortgage mangers to endure the GFC, which is at testament to our commitment to providing honest advise and personalised solutions to our wide range of customers by always considering the long term implications

Our ongoing success and reputation as one of Australia’s most trustworthy mortgage providers was recognised by a number of major organisations, and business relationships were established

Joint ventures we’re established with one of Australia’s largest construction companies, McDonald Jones, who we continue to work closely with to provide specialised construction finance on their homes

Our non-bank lending programme, Mortgageport Home Loans, was established. This was one of the major milestones in Mortgageport’s long history and was only made possible by nearly 20 years of ongoing success and continued reputation as one of Australia’s most trustworthy mortgage providers

Our ongoing success and reputation as one of Australia’s most trustworthy mortgage providers was recognised by a number of major organisations, and business relationships were established

Our non-resident lending programme was launched. After identifying a market opportunity, Mortgageport’s rigid infrastructure and strong market position allowed us to pioneer a non-resident programme, which was an immediate success

Selected as the only non-ADI mortgage provider on the panel of FHLDS (first home loan deposit scheme) lenders, largely due to our proven track record and reputation as a trusted lender

    Chris brings over 20 years’ experience in the home loans sector with household names such as Wizard Home Loans and GE Money. He looks after the operational performance of Mortgageport, powering the Mortgageport engine, developing people, systems and processes.

The people you see here are at the heart of our business, although they have different roles, they share a common purpose – to make your financial life as straight-forward as possible.

A really important Mortgageport difference is that every member of our team is salary-based. No one who works here is incentivised with commissions. This means our recommendations are truly based on your best interests.

“Dear Col, Well the house has exchanged!! I would like to thank you for all your dedication and persistence in order for this to happen. I know you said that you were only doing your job but your efforts were above and beyond the normal call of duty. Thank you”
Kim & Paul, Dee Why, NSW
“Mortgageport was originally recommended to us by our financial adviser. We are very busy people and don’t have the time to dedicate to finding the best home loan for our needs. We were glad that Mortgageport stepped in to help us. We found that they were pleasant and thorough and really knew what they were doing, this gave us a lot of confidence. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a home loan.”
Jessica, Seven Hills, NSW
“Thank you for the excellent service your company provided us with our recent refinancing of our loan. The speed you executed all correspondence with us, either with fax, phone or post was outstanding. It was so good to just sit back and feel everything just fall into place. All your staff were courteous, friendly and understanding of our needs. In particular Gloria who looked after us from start to end. Please thank all your staff involved with our financial needs.”
Marisa, Isaacs, ACT
“We are a boutique accounting practice in Canberra with a focus on property investors. Our clients are delighted with the incredible research and effort that Mortgageport make, the feedback is always so positive. Of course with this type of feedback, without reservation, we recommend Mortgageport to anyone that needs a loan. I personally always use Mortgageport for my own personal financing needs; they are knowledgeable and always have my best interests at heart. Every team member at Mortgageport goes the extra mile, I am not just a number but a client that is well looked after and my concerns always matter.”
Susie, Sydney, NSW
“Dear Glen, I would just like to express how impressed I have been with Beth, she has been a great support and her assistance has been invaluable, I could not have done without her advice; being rather a novice at all this it has been so good to have her advice and backup which she does in both a professional and empathetic manner.“
Linda, Chatswood, NSW
“Mortgageport did a brilliant job! I never ceased to be amazed at your patience and perseverance, not to mention efficiency, while organising the refinancing of our existing loans and financing the new property at Wobby Beach. We are very pleased with the way you set up the loans with St George and have found them extremely efficient and helpful.”
Fay, Boonah, QLD
“We were initially referred to Michael McKelvie at Mortgageport in early 2005 when we wanted to begin to put together a portfolio in Queensland. Our dealings with Michael went so smoothly, that we have continued to deal with him through multiple transactions to the present day. In our experience Mortgageport has a great team, they are professional and timely and have been able to provide exactly the right product for our needs. We have even utilised Mortgageport for personal real estate purchases as well. We continue to use Michael McKelvie and Mortgageport and will continue to do so, and have recommended Mortgageport to others and have absolutely no hesitation in doing so.”
Michael, Sydney, NSW
“I had an investment loan with a major lender for a holiday rental property in Culburra Beach. Unfortunately, I was not given a very good deal and I was also disappointed with the level of customer service. After investigating my refinancing options, I found that Mortgageport offered the tailored approach I was after. I wanted the process to be simple, streamlined and above all personalised. Glen Spratt, Mortgageport Managing Director, took the hassle out of the process by dealing directly with my accountant and the bank, briefing me when necessary. Glen secured a competitive rate and managed my expectations about dealing with the Bank of South Australia, a lender I hadn’t dealt with previously. I have been extremely satisfied with the outcome and have already recommended Mortgageport to five other colleagues.”
Loli, West Hoxton, NSW
“I am overwhelmed with how efficient you and your office are. I was advised by a friend that these things take weeks to put together. Well wait till I tell her it only took 24 hours. Once again, thank you for all your help.”
Jane, Rosebery, NSW
“Dear Michael, We remember you well from a few years back. We know we are in capable hands and all our contacts with Mortgageport consultants have been highly professional and positive.”
Chris, Canberra, ACT
“I have dealt with Mortgageport on two occasions now (specifically with Michael McKelvie) and have found not only their service to be of the highest professional standard, but they are also such a lovely friendly team to deal with. In a country where I feel the service industry has to a large degree fallen apart, the team at Mortgageport have always gone above and beyond the call of duty to address and guide me and my young family with time, patience and a really easy-going approach with all our mortgage related endeavors. I am not an investment banker or necessarily fabulous with facts and figures but still believe in equity and sustainable growth. I look forward to working with Mortgageport to develop a property portfolio now and well into the future.”
Tim, Maroubra, NSW
“I was introduced to Mortgageport by my father (one of Mortgageport’s first customers), back in late 2002 when I bought my first home. Since then, I have transacted four additional mortgages using their services. Each time I have found the advice to be professional, accurate and insightful as the staff draw from their considerable experience base. I am repeatedly delighted by their friendly personable approach, and the efficiency and speed of the way they do business.”

Liz, Pyrmont, NSW
Recently I had my loan re-financed through your organisation. I had the pleasure of being looked after by Chris Auton. Chris was absolutely fantastic in the way he explained everything in easy to understand terms, kept me up to date with regular progress reports and gave clear advice on exactly what was needed. Chris’ professionalism and attention to detail were outstanding. It is not often you get such great customer service, hence why I decided to give this feedback.
Robbie and Sallie Newson, Southport Qld
Michelle is the ultimate professional! From the first phone call right through to well past the actual settlement of the property we could not be more impressed with Michelle. We found Michelle to be friendly, extremely approachable and most of all professional. Michelle was more than happy to answer any question we had and her willingness to fit in with our busy work/life schedules was amazing and very much appreciated. The ease at which Michelle obtained approval for our loan and the way in which she conveyed information either in person, by phone, email or text was exceptional. Michelle definitely takes pride in her work and that is 100% evident in the way she conducts herself and business matters she completes. Michelle is a huge asset to Morgageport but most of all she is a true godsend for her clients. We are thrilled to recommend Michelle to the highest degree.
