Your success is my success
My property consultant has been very helpful and understanding of the difficult circumstances surrounding my ability to even make time to talk. He has struck a very good balance between assisting without being too intrusive. From what I have witnessed Gladfish deserves its success. Your success is my success!
All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.
Gladfish has delivered everything they said they would, both painlessly and at predicted costs. I found myself getting extremely excited at the prospect of investing in property, especially because we have this idea for years but never quite dared to take the plunge. All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.
Made our retirement a decent one
There is no doubt we have entered into this whole enterprise because of Gladfish. Gladfish is always happy to impart their expertise to help us provide a better future and make our retirement a decent one. A big thank you for the dream of a better future for my family.
Really helped us
Gladfish has really helped us in establishing our foundation in the property market. The people we have been in contact with have been very understanding and professional. What we love about the team is that they really work from their hearts.
We have been working with Gladfish since 2009, we are very happy with their end to end services provided, from sourcing to property management. Hassle free. We met with the team before we made our first investment, they are very professional.
Far less stressful to be guided
Before we came into contact with Gladfish we already owned three properties in addition to our own home. We have learned that we were not working to any sort of plan but were hoping for the best and working through problems as they arose. Since working with Gladfish, we have now bought two buy-to-let properties with them. Importantly, we know where the money is coming from and where it is going to in advance. We find it far less stressful to be guided by the team that Brett has. My wife Fiona often remarks "if only we had found Gladfish sooner."
Reached 1M pounds mark in my portfolio
Brett's and his team's knowledge of investing in property has been very impressive, as well as eye-opening. They got me into a new way of thinking, I now think differently from what I did last year. My knowledge has vastly grown in working with them. I don't think of Brett as a Property Consultant. I think of him more as a friend who I can trust to look after my interests. As for results well, I've almost reached the million pounds mark in my portfolio, not bad for a couple from Glasgow.
Keep everything simple
Our circumstances were a bit different. I am Australian and Mike is English, our ideal lifestyle is to spend time in both countries. Gladfish helped us to be aware of our needs and mapped out a plan that involved building a portfolio large enough for Mike to leave work. I am happy to say that we have achieved this. The best thing about working with Gladfish is that they keep everything very simple but at the same time does not deviate from the principles. Brett himself supports and educates you through the emotional and financial aspects of portfolio building. Through this certainty, we have been able to secure a portfolio of 9 properties.
Helped through some hiccups
The team are extremely professional and gave us sound advice on the property investments we have purchased. They've been very patient with our numerous questions concerning the purchase and have helped enormously through some hiccups.
Make it all possible and effortless
I have been extremely impressed with Gladfish. My situation as a first time overseas investor (from South Africa) had its challenges and frustrations. It simply would not have been possible without Gladfish! Everyone I dealt with went the extra mile to make it all possible and effortless.
Educational material is fantastic
The high quality free educational material is fantastic! The guidance from the whole team is excellent. It's great doing business with you guys and I look forward to a long fruitful relationship!
Protect and develop my investments
Gladfish have been responsible for successfully building my increasing property portfolio, without whom it would have been decidedly more challenging, stressful and I suspect significantly less profitable! Dedicated support and strategic advice from Ryan and his wider managed team have guided me through my entire journey from a baseline knowledge of property investment to being able to make informed long-term strategic decisions and restructuring to both protect and develop my investments. Whenever a conversation crops up about property investment I always recommend that the starting place should be a conversation with Ryan and Gladfish.
Education made available
Thank you for all the education you have made available to me over the past 3 years. Reading your book now makes me appreciate this even more as you have been giving us exactly what you are now providing the public. I've been reading your material on the web, end to end, at least once a month. Reason? Because as I grow in the business, the meanings of what you say in your material changes, they grow, they become more relevant. More importantly, as I practice the principles and follow the rules, I definitely see the benefit.
I can rely on
I have been working with Gladfish for years now, and I have to say, I have never looked back. I would recommend them to anyone, from first-time investors to seasoned investment professionals. I started off as a very nervous first-time buyer back in 2012, and over the last few years, their property consultant has helped me develop my confidence and knowledge in property investment by being a huge support. They are friendly, professional and approachable, but most importantly, passionate about what they do which is what I believe distinguishes Gladfish from other companies. Property Consultants always have time for their clients, on occasions, I have been known to call them up at 10 pm at night with questions about an upcoming property purchase! The whole of the Gladfish team seem client-focused, and they are also extremely well connected. From the day you become a client, all the hassles of property purchasing/investment get taken off your plate (if that’s what you want) and it just makes everything so much less stressful. I’m so glad to know I have a company I can rely on to buy my properties off for life.
Wish I kick started working with them earlier
I started working with Gladfish in April-2016. I was allocated Ryan as the account manager. He is absolutely brilliant. I was looking for someone that I could trust to give me the correct advise and help me fast track into property investment. Ryan excelled at this. He was also very accommodating of my working hours, and we've had several calls after 8 pm. I have no regrets working with Gladfish. I only wish I kick-started working with them earlier.
Understanding of the property market is emence.
I was considering whether I should invest my limited savings in property and decided to call these guys and have a better understanding of the current market conditions and where it was heading. Spoke to Ryan who explained in detail as to why, where and how I should invest my funds. They made the process so easy. His understanding of the property market is immense. If you're thinking of getting in on the property market then I recommend speaking to Ryan at Gladfish first.
Worked with my finances perfectly
Great company with a superb team and customer service! Very good selection of property investment opportunities. I spoke to Ryan, he is efficient, knowledgeable and helped me a lot to invest in property that worked with my finances perfectly, for which I am truly grateful. Would recommend this company to any investor.
Very professional service
Ryan was excellent, extremely helpful from start to finish with friendly and very professional service.
Prioritises customer satisfaction
Gladfish prides itself as a company that prioritizes customer satisfaction. The team totally embodies this principle. Completely professional in their manner, open to and approachable for discussion and always available should any questions arise. A perfect example of why Gladfish has the great reputation it does.
Successful in property development
We didn't like the idea of paying large up-front fees, nor of developing a portfolio so quickly, or indeed of paying £2000 for attending seminars on how to build up a successful portfolio. We came across Gladfish on the internet. There was something refreshingly different about Brett's philosophy. Instead of "the big sell", he was interested in developing the investor's knowledge of how to become successful in property development. Gladfish enables clients to develop their portfolio gradually and more importantly "cash flowed" to reduce possible problems at a later stage. Brett and the team have assisted us to develop a £1.4 million portfolio both here and in Spain and have assisted with any snags as they invariably crop up.
It has been an educational experience so far. On the whole, the service has been professional and personalised. I have been very impressed with the staff, pleasant, professional, approachable, and just a pleasure to talk to.
Well researched, attractive property investment opportunities
Gladfish offer well researched, attractive property investment opportunities across the UK, finding great yielding investment property with strong capital growth. The team were knowledgeable, thoughtful whilst guiding me through the whole purchase process. Their investment blog is a great help and their expertise evident as they offer a lot of property investment education for free.
Useful research resouce
Gladfish offer researched, property investment opportunities across the UK. The team are knowledgeable and thoughtful whilst guiding buyers through the whole purchase process. Their Top 100 investment blog is a useful research resource where they offer property investment education articles and videos free.
Best options to invest in property
Gladfish team explained the best options for me to invest in property, helped me to set up my property investment strategy plan. They do everything for me and I don't need to give up my full-time job. With Gladfish, my properties are now generating very healthy rent income. The capital gain on two of my properties is more than 20%. I am very glad that I have chosen Gladfish as my property investment agent.
Efficient, competent and friendly team
The Gladfish team have got to be the most efficient, competent and friendly team I have ever had the pleasure to do business with. My property consultant phones me on a regular basis to keep me current with any ongoing developments within the property market and any good property deals that maybe of interest. It is a level of service other companies must only dream of being able to deliver to their clients.
I didn't feel pressured
Introduced to the team by Neelam, who was professional at the outset. I didn’t feel pressured. I was invited to their London office and got to meet the Associate Director Dan, who was fantastic in giving an overview of the property cycle ..... coming up with a clear strategy based on personal need and financial circumstances. Their upfront sourcing fee does seem expensive but it’s easily offset by the discounts and expertise they bring to the table. I found Gladfish as a professional outfit and worth my long trip from North to London and now find myself as a keenly interested property investor.
Beyond our expectation
The information we received regarding our queries to invest in the UK, was outstanding and went beyond our expectation. The time spent over the phone to understand out requirements was more than enough for us to understand the nature of the investment. All emails were informative and the attachments were great. At any time during the process, Neelam was available to answer our queries until we were fully satisfied with the answers. This what we call an outstanding service.
Effort beyond their role
I found my dealings with Gladfish, very professional. They were always there to answer all my questions and their property consultants are fantastic. They always made a great effort beyond their role.
I have used Gladfish for over 3 years and bought 2 properties with them. They are always supportive particularly Manny and Ritesh from start to finish -e.g. cash flow analysis, property selections, purchasing, progression, financing, completion and then property management with Ezytrac. They are always helpful offering best advice possible in all aspects of property management and replying to my enquiries promptly. Gladfish is an efficient, responsive and responsible company and l would strongly recommend using their services including Ezytrac!
Approachable, helpful and knowledgeable
I've worked with Ryan from Gladfish for a few years and he is very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable! I would definitely recommend Gladfish and Ryan to future property investors.
Make the correct decision
Very helpful and knowledgeable team, specially Ryan who patiently answered my numerous questions helping me make the correct decision.
Take all the hassle out of property investing
A great company to use to take all the hassle out of property investing. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and most importantly well educated within all types of property investing. My personal experience with Ryan who is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and take all the pressure out of what can be a potentially stressful process, even when that process may fall within their own holiday!
Everything was made very clear from the start
What I liked about the Gladfish experience is that everything was made very clear from the start. The whole journey was mapped out. Everything was exactly 'what it said on the tin'. There were no unexpected surprises.
Buying property remotely can be with a huge risk, this you need people you can rely on and trust. Gladfish have been a one-stop shop for me. I have found them reliable, friendly and deliver what they say. Thank you for making this process so simple!
Purchase process exciting and painless
Gladfish indeed did a great job. It's not my first buy-to-let property when I met them the first time, but I've learned the fundamentals of being a property investor from them. The whole purchase process exciting and painless. The team was very relaxed (which made me relax) but responsive to my questions. Great!
Advise is given as and when needed
The product and service that are offered are clear. The processes are too slick to believe sometimes. Advice is given as and when needed to ensure you are comfortable with the developments as they happen. My property consultant knew my needs even before I did!
London property info from the trusted expert
The buying process was handled professionally and effectively by the Gladfish team. Info provided was relevant and useful with no surprise element. As an overseas investor, I have the benefit of knowing about local London property info from the trusted expert.
Scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction
Initial scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction. No hype, no pressure - just informed facts - presented clearly. Very professional company.
Start and increase my property portfolio
Been using Gladfish for 5 years. Very good company. Help me to start and increase my property portfolio. Always available for advice or if I have specific issues. Learnt a lot from them. Will continue to use.
Invest without any stress
I am constantly busy with far too many priorities fighting for my attention. I came across Gladfish Property Investment by accident and its been a really good experience to date. Ryan has provided helpful professional advise that has opened the door for me to invest without any stress. Answering questions patiently and providing a service way beyond my expectations, truly delighted by the amount of handholding I have had to date. Cannot recommend them enough, the company overall for their flexibility and going the extra mile! A real surprise
professional and efficient
I have now dealt with Gladfish on 2 occasions, and both times they were extremely professional and efficient. Highly recommend.
make good investments in the UK
They helped us to make good investments in the UK.
Very positive experience
Very good advice and service and my first venture into off plan property has been a very positive experience
Very helpful and informative team with good communication between customer & consultant.
Available to advise
I have mainly dealt with Ryan over the past few years and he has been fantastic in helping me build a portfolio. Lovely to have someone so professional and available to advise on these matters, when you are so short on free time.
Well informed people
It has been a pleasure working with such well-informed people as Ryan... his knowledge in the UK property market provides clarity and confidence in knowing where and when to invest and has the patience of a saint in my many many questions! Gladfish are a professional outfit and have helped me start out on my property investment journey with ease and confidence.
Understands the market well
I recommend Gladfish to anyone interested in investing in property. Speak to Ritesh, he really understands the market well and will make the process easy for you! These guys are more focused on helping you hit your investment goals rather than just flogging you a property. 10/10.
Listened and understood our goals
As an overseas investor, despite the distance, I am still looking for that human touch to the transactions. In Neelam and Sharon I got that and more. Neelam listened and understood my goals and helped and continues to help along the journey. I am glad with the Gladfish package, right from the online investor resources to how they interact with me. I am well set for a long-term relationship.
For property purchases and accurate guidance Gladfish is top of the game. The team do the research and due diligence in all factors...You can be sure it will be a competent and stable developer, a less than market value property purchase price, an accurate calculation for your future return. You're not forgotten once you've made a purchase and you can contact the team at any time. I've been working with two consultants over the past 5 years, Neelam and Dan. I've experienced a friendly relationship with professional guidance and confidence. I would certainly recommend to anyone considering property acquisitions beginners or experienced. A genuine company, a great team...
