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.

A prompt experience and a delight to work with.

I have been liasing with Holly over a number of flats she manages within our estate, she has been extremely helpful, efficient at resolving issues quickly and arranging access within a matter of minutes to flats I required access to for a leak. A prompt experience and a delight to work with.

Sophie - Client

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.

Libby

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.

Henry

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.

Jasper

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

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!

Ian

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.

Tan

Patient and Professional

Great experience all around with the team at Gladfish, in particular, Dan Varnaseri and James Cox. Patient and Professional despite my own ever-changing circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.

Jonathan

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.

Res

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.

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.

Chris

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with on all fronts. Professional and rapid with their approach. I highly recommend them!

Kas

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

professional and efficient

I have now dealt with Gladfish on 2 occasions, and both times they were extremely professional and efficient. Highly recommend.

Maksim

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with on all fronts. Professional and rapid with their approach. I highly recommend them!

Kas

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

Louis

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.

Fiona

Great service

Great service, with the Gladfish team going out of their way to answer your questions and guide you through process!

Nadim

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."

Tony and Fiona

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.
