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 and being a qualified mortgage advisor in Australia I thought i would setup what today is the Ezytrac Property Group which includes Gladfish Property.

Besides selling over £1,000,000,000 pounds of property across 5 countries, Brett also develops 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.

Jhonny

Always there when needed.

Olivia has been great, and did everything she could to help make things quicker and easier for me, always responded straight away to emails and calls so always there when needed.

Stacie - Tenant

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

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

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.

Nick

Very professional

I have used Ezytrac for the past 5 years and found everyone to be very professional and informative. Caroline Bevis has always done a fantastic job and I would absolutely recommend Ezytrac and all their staff to anyone!

Libby C - Client

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

Kas

The team clearly enjoy helping others

Gladfish have been very pleasant and professional throughout. I would never have taken the plunge if I had not met Ryan. He set my nerves at ease and showed me the ropes. The team clearly enjoy helping others. Thanks so much

Nicole

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!

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.

Very good help and service

Very good help and service from James.

Jiten

Diligent kept in touch throughout the whole process

Sandie was very responsive from the outset and helpfully suggested ways in which we could perhaps unblock the sink/ pipes ourselves. In the end, this wasn't possible, and so Sandie arranged for a contractor to unblock the pipes and diligently kept in touch throughout the whole process. Sandie was very clear and her tone was professional from the word go. We were very happy with the service.

Peter - Tenant

Always brings a positive attitude

Caroline has, as always, worked tirelessly to ensure that a recent property sale went through. She consistently nudges both parties, to make sure progress is being made and always brings a positive attitude. Im very grateful to you Caroline for working hard on my behalf to conclude this sale - thank you!

landlord_2019 - Client

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.

John

Smooth and seamless process

This was my first experience buying an off-plan property and that too as an ex-pat. The whole process seemed very daunting and confusing however I must acknowledge that the Ezytrac team and in particular Caroline Bevis made it as simple as possible. Caroline was absolutely professional in the way she handled the whole process from initial deposit through to completion. She kept me fully updated and remained very responsive to each and every query that I had. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline and the Ezytrac team to anyone looking to purchase a property in the UK and will surely be using them for my future purchases.

Salman M - Investor

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.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of starting to build a property portfolio

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

Quick to answer any queries

Brilliant communication skills, fast-paced environment and quick to answer any queries I may have had. Thank you for your help.

Shana - Client

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.
