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.

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

Outstanding Support

Once again, Caroline provided outstanding support during the purchase of a property. She was in frequent contact with the seller, solicitor and myself, ensuring that the purchase was progressing as quickly as possible. She is attentive, patient and conscientious - without doubt, she eased the entire process for me. Worthy of the highest rating.

Craig - Property Investor

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

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

Make the correct decision

Very helpful and knowledgeable team, specially Ryan who patiently answered my numerous questions helping me make the correct decision.

Payman

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

Very professional service

Ryan was excellent, extremely helpful from start to finish with friendly and very professional service.

Mohammad

Wish I kick started working with them earlier

I started working with Gladfish in April-2016. I was allocated Ryan as the account manager. He is absolutely brilliant. I was looking for someone that I could trust to give me the correct advise and help me fast track into property investment. Ryan excelled at this. He was also very accommodating of my working hours, and we've had several calls after 8 pm. I have no regrets working with Gladfish. I only wish I kick-started working with them earlier.

Jag

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

Has always been quick and responsive

I have worked alongside Helen for almost two years now, she is a delight to work with. Helen has always been quick and responsive when it comes to communication and admin work. Not only does Helen have a welcoming friendly and personality, she works hard to help others. I look forward to continue working alongside Helen, keep it up!

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.

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.

Everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.

When I moved to Baroque Gardens in August 2016, I expected to be in for a rough ride.
The agent responsible for the initial part of the rental process was Crest Residential and they took a long time to sort each step from the offer to the signature of the agreement, making for a very stressful move.
As soon as Ezytrac took over, though, everything was dealt with utmost efficiency and professionalism.
During the first part of my tenancy, property coordinator Machaela was my first point of contact at EzyTrac, who handled my initial questions always answering to my e-mails promptly and politely.
I stayed almost two years in that property and during that time I never had any problem with EzyTrac whatsoever.
When I decided to move on, lettings coordinator Sarah took me through all the steps of ending the tenancy, making for a smooth and easy transition.

During my last month at the property, when the property was put back of the market, a reasonable number of viewings were scheduled at sensible times. The agents showing the property were friendly and quick causing almost no inconvenience.

The inventory check-out was fair and the rent deposit was returned on time with reasonable pre-agreed deductions.
Overall, working with EzyTrac was a very positive experience and I reassure that moving to a property managed by them will result in a straight forward and peaceful tenancy.

Mr O - Tenant

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

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

Make the correct decision

Very helpful and knowledgeable team, specially Ryan who patiently answered my numerous questions helping me make the correct decision.

Payman

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

Education made available

Thank you for all the education you have made available to me over the past 3 years. Reading your book now makes me appreciate this even more as you have been giving us exactly what you are now providing the public. I've been reading your material on the web, end to end, at least once a month. Reason? Because as I grow in the business, the meanings of what you say in your material changes, they grow, they become more relevant. More importantly, as I practice the principles and follow the rules, I definitely see the benefit.

Borie
