About Nest

Since 2014 Nest Home Loans has been helping everyday New Zealand families to stop renting and remove the confusion out of buying a home. Getting professional friendly advice through the mortgage process can help your family become homeowners, the kiwi dream. Buying a home provides an opportunity to save money on rent but also give you long term financial security for your family. Our business is built on relationships and you may have been referred by family or friends who we have also helped through the house buying process.

The relationships we have with lenders gives us the ability to offer highly specialised solutions to clients with more complicated circumstances, no two loans are the same. You may have been referred to us by another mortgage broker or your bank to help with a particular issue or simply just want an experienced adviser to help smooth the process.

You can read more about our successes from happy home owners in our reviews section, this is what makes us get up in the morning, helping clients realise dreams.

If you are thinking about a future purchase, call us today to put together a plan to get ready so that you don't miss out! There is never a better time to buy a home, the earlier you start the more you save, we look forward to hearing from you!

There is no place like home!

Jeff Kerwin


I started my career as a mortgage adviser in 2012 part time mortgage advising while still in the police. My mortgage advising business grew very quickly to a point where I decided to resign from the police. Ive never looked back since!

I have always been involved in property trading (also known as “flipping”) and investing in long term buy and holds. That’s what got me interested in mortgage brokering, because I was working with an amazing mortgage broker who helped me with my property endeavours.

In 2017, I received the prestigious award of being the number 6 broker in the country. At the time I considered myself to be a rookie, as I was very new to the industry and all the other award winners were seasoned veterans. Not a bad result for a rookie in their 3rd year as a broker!

What gets me out of bed each day (other than the alarm clock), is hearing all the struggles some of our clients have been through, and when they come to Nest they finally get their dream home. I love reading the testimonials that my team gets on Google, Trade Me and Facebook.
