Two Decades of Property Thought Leadership for the Every Person…

My Role at Gladfish

In 2004 after 2 years of living in London, I decided to stay a while so I founded YPC Group in 2016 I took over as Chairman of Gladfish.

2017 sees the introduction of Gladfish - Property Search... Think Gladfish, this is Bretts first Property Tech company which will offer various investment strategies including co-working space, hotels, international property as well as his stable, residential property.

Brett also developers hotels and residential sites across Australia and the UK. Through his various partners he can offer a wide range of investments to his clients.

In 2012, with my family & business growing we moved to Singapore to guide the expansion throughout Asia. Despite the move, I still get involved in the day-to-day strategic side of the business (too much most of the team would say).

These days my time is spent recording videos, writing educational material and running seminars. However, I still get involved in the Portfolio Management which I believe so much in.

Best service team

One of the best service team I have ever come across. They understood what the client needs in order to make decisions. Clear and concise communication drawing out the key points. Very knowledgeable and competent team to work with

Emeka

Enjoyed the process of starting to build a property portfolio with Gladfish.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the process of starting to build a property portfolio with Gladfish. James and Ryan have made the process a fun and stress free one and I’m enjoying learning about the industry further as I go. Their advice in other areas, not just ones relative to our investment projects, is very much appreciated and I’m confident in partaking in future projects with them. The email content is very useful and I would highly recommend the company.

Kieren - Client

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.

Jon

Very positive experience

Very good advice and service and my first venture into off plan property has been a very positive experience

Graham

Communicates regularly

Sharon is a great person to work with. She communicates regularly and has kept me informed of the progress of my property exchange/completion. Ezytrac is good at this and also at providing regular monthly statements, invoicing, and reporting for billing purposes. Makes my job easier as a landlord.

Jag P - Landlord

Educational Experience

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.

Benita

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.

Jon

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.

Getting Personal with Brett

My Greatest Accomplishments

  • Having 4 kids and having time for each of them,
  • Convincing Arlene to marry me
  • Building 8 successful businesses and guiding them through the 2007-2012 recession, then Brexit.
  • Travelling to over 35 countries, Favourite city is Hong Kong, Favourite country is Nepal.
  • Winning the Peoples Book Prize in 2010 for Non-Fiction.
  • My promotion to Cadet Under Officer (CUO) in the Air Force Cadets.
  • Various Sporting and Debating Championships whilst at school.

Brett was born in Melbourne, Australia before moving to Brisbane when he was 7 years old. He spent most of his early career in Property, Personal Development and Consulting. He never lost the passion for property ignited by his parents who in his teens would buy and renovate properties on the weekend. “After 20 years I now have a large portfolio across a number of countries and I live between UK, Singapore, and Australia.”

He was married in 2008 on Sydney Harbour to Arlene (a fellow Aussie – although her Dad is Filipino and Mum is German and she spent much of her life is Asia). They have four kids, Ahmani (born 2010), Bastien (2012), Bayzen(2014) and Akira(2016). Brett says he has finally worked out what causes them :). Arlene and Brett also study Mandarin together (they call it their day date.)

Brett has a number of business interests besides property the other ones being a large Tyre store in Queensland and a number of sites selling Internet Marketing and corporate consultancy. He also has a number of incubator businesses in which he guides new entrepreneurs to get their business established.

Brett also stays physically active through Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts as well as swimming and riding his Road and Mountain bikes.

Brett spent many years in the military. Joining the Air Force cadets at 13 years and reaching their highest level (Cadet Under Officer) at age 16. He then went on to join the Royal Australian Army (Artillery Corp), after being told he was too tall (by 2cm) to be a pilot, he then corp transferred to the Royal Australia Navy as a Clearance Diver (CD). Brett is well known for his annual Formula One Grand Prix Boys weekend when his mates from across the world descend for 4 days of fun followed by a week in a different country each year.

My Work Process

I have always worked hard, (Arlene would say too hard), I got this from my parents who worked hard throughout their lives. My father always had 2 jobs and they always took on extra work to make money.

We were like any middle-class family in Australia at the time. I have been able to successfully maintain their work ethic but combine it with working smarter and creating leverage wherever I can.

I have always been very focussed on family and my prime motivator was to give my family and also those around me more opportunity that I perhaps had.

Off Topic Things About Me

I was into Triathlons from an early age which then moved into Adventure racing, I’ve always loved the bush.

Youngest Aerobics Instructor and Personal Trainer in Queensland (16 years)

Held a job as a FlimFlam Singing Telegram Man whilst at University.

I am probably a geek at heart, except I never learnt to code so I had to learn to sell.

Once was a backup dancer for English pop singer, Ellie Campbell during her tour of Australia.

Paul

You can always count on

You will be a star or an experienced property investor to have a straight run with the myriad of documents you have to go through and sign in respect of a typical transaction. However, you can always count on the ready assistance of the Team to guide you through the journey. Diligent, efficient, dogged and resilient. They are a wonderful bunch.

Tony

Team works at your pace and is not pushy

James at Gladfish was really supportive. He took an interest and really listened to our needs. He had a really good knowledge of how things worked and put our mind at rest by answering all of our questions. The team works at your pace is not pushy and seek to provide you with all the information you need to make a balanced decision. It was a great experience working with James and the team and we would definitely recommend them if you want a well thought out strategy that works.

Rowena

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.

Helen

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!

Ian

Guided me through the whole process

Living in Singapore, I was not close enough to the London property market to understand the market sentiment. The Gladfish team were able to guide me through the whole process. I am now the proud owner of London property and look forward to working with them again on future investments

Riley - Singapore

Great service!

I have had a great experience with Ezytac. Everything was done promptly and professionally. I have been dealt with by Sophie who has been so helpful and friendly throughout and cannot do enough to help me, she even arranged for my flat to be cleaned as a gesture for a lack of communication on someone else's behalf! Great service!

Nikki - Tenant

Service with a Smile.

I have worked with Helen (in a supplier capacity) for a number of years, and she has always been very professional and helpful but more than that always friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

Happy - Client

Team at Gladfish always go the extra mile for their clients

The team at Gladfish always go the extra mile for their clients. I had a headache with a third party and Ryan Rahnavard supported me throughout. He did most of the chasing for me. Gladfish is a great company headed up by Brett and I hope to be a client for many years to come! Ryan patiently helped me set up my company so that I can buy property under a company structure. There are always highs and lows when you build a portfolio and I feel completely supported by Ryan and the Gladfish team. Thank you all so much for getting me this far! 10 out of 10!

Jason
