Keith Caine, of Mortgage Choice Glenelg, has been awarded as SA’s Best Residential Broker and Broker of the Year at The Adviser’s Better Business Awards in Adelaide.

The Better Business Awards, which honours the state’s best brokers, aggregator BDMs, lender BDMs, loan administrators and those running community engagement programs, was held last night (22 February) at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Following the Better Business Summit 2018, hosted in partnership with principal partner NAB, the awards saw brokers from both South Australia and the Northern Territory recognised for their hard work and dedication to delivering good consumer outcomes.

Keith Caine, of Mortgage Choice Glenelg, was chosen as SA’s Best Residential Broker and Broker of the Year.


The Mortgage Choice broker was praised by the judges for his commitment to improving the financial literacy of his clients and supporting the local community.

Some familiar faces were among the winners this year: Weng Wong of Equatorial Finance Solutions won the Best Finance Broker award for the second year in a row, while Joanne Dillon of Smartline Roxby Downs took home the award for Best Regional Broker once again.

Rise High Financial Solutions, run by James and Marissa Schulze, took out the award for Best Community Engagement Program for its Rise High Rookies program, while the staff were honoured as a whole by winning the Best Customer Service (Office) award for the second year in a row.

Nani Johnston was named Rising Star this year, clinching the hat trick for Rise High Financial Solutions.

Evan Sourbis from Henley Home Loans was honoured for his service to industry through the Editor’s Choice award.


Having been in the industry for more than 15 years, Mr Sourbis was commended for his dedication to delivering great outcomes for his clients and maintaining long-lasting relationships. The judge particularly praised his determination to ensure the home loan process is not only painless but pleasurable.

The Best Newcomer award went to Andrew Mudie of Yellow Brick Road Brighton, who was praised by the judges for taking a “comprehensive approach” with his clients, aiming to ensure that they are well informed and fully understanding of the options available to them.

Representing the Northern Territory, Aussie Darwin took home two awards on this night: Best Branded Office and Best New Office.

BDMs from AFG, BankSA and Pepper Money were also honoured for their work.

The full list of South Australia’s Better Business Awards winners is available now.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists!

Better Business Summit 2018

Now in its fifth consecutive year, the Better Business Awards forms part of the award-winning Better Business Summit.

The Better Business Summit first launched in 2013 as a state-based event to provide brokers with straight-talking, practical advice to help them grow and improve their businesses.

It was the first state-based awards program to recognise and celebrate the best in the industry in their local markets.

The Better Business Summit has won multiple awards and has grown exponentially over the years to become the industry’s leading event, and now welcomes more than 4,500 attendees every year.
