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.

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

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

Hassle free

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.

Sam

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

You feel confident

I discovered Gladfish after watching some of Brett's investment videos on youtube and so far it has been a pleasure to work with Dan and James on getting started building up a portfolio. The service, knowledge and care they provide are second to none and they make you feel confident with all aspects of searching for investment and the purchase. I decided to go for property number two through them almost immediately after the first as it all went so smoothly the first time.

Roland

Very responsive and helpful at all times

It has been a pleasure liaising with Holly in relation to a HIU issue affecting a property at Aberfeldy Village E14.

Holly was very responsive and helpful at all times throughout the process for both ourselves as Estate Management and, also with the tenant involved.

Frank - 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

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

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.

John

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.

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 from James.

Edward - Investor

Excellent Service

Had email exchange with Helen today. I found Helen very professional and polite - quick response time to my emails! Thank you very much Helen 🙂

Becki - Client

professional and efficient

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

Maksim

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

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."
