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.

Excellent service

Excellent customer service, professional advise, customer, follow up and post transaction monitoring by Manny

Banjo

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.

David

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.

Property Management

We have been working with Ezytrac for several years, the property management team is efficient and quick to authorise works on behalf of landlords and tenants.

Ward Property - Client

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.

Beena

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

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

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.

Paul

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.

Michael

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!

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.

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.

All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.

Tim

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

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!
