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.

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

Make the correct decision

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

Payman

Very positive experience

Very good advice and service and my first venture into off plan property has been a very positive experience

Graham

Accurate guidance

For property purchases and accurate guidance Gladfish is top of the game. The team do the research and due diligence in all factors...You can be sure it will be a competent and stable developer, a less than market value property purchase price, an accurate calculation for your future return. You're not forgotten once you've made a purchase and you can contact the team at any time. I've been working with two consultants over the past 5 years, Neelam and Dan. I've experienced a friendly relationship with professional guidance and confidence. I would certainly recommend to anyone considering property acquisitions beginners or experienced. A genuine company, a great team...

Malcolm

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

Wonderful experience

Wonderful experience and advice provided by Manny and Dan - would love to recommend Gladfish and continue to deal with them for my future investment needs.

Vineet

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 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

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.

Prith

Best service team

One of the best service team I have ever come across. They understood what the client needs in order to make decisions. Clear and concise communication drawing out the key points. Very knowledgeable and competent team to work with

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.

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

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

Wonderful experience

Wonderful experience and advice provided by Manny and Dan - would love to recommend Gladfish and continue to deal with them for my future investment needs.

Vineet

Very grateful for their service

Manny is very helpful, patient and professional. Very grateful for his service.

Ween4ever

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

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.

Samir

They are amazing and knowledgeable

Truly inspirational. The team is available for chat and suggestions. The academy online is the place to go to have impartial news on property. They’ve also had a good deal all over the country to suit every specific circumstance. What I like the most of Gladfish strategy is the “set and forget” at the conditions it gets set right from the beginning. I would like to recommend Ryan as he is my main point of contact. They are amazing and knowledgeable.

Marco

Well researched, attractive property investment opportunities

Gladfish offer well researched, attractive property investment opportunities across the UK, finding great yielding investment property with strong capital growth. The team were knowledgeable, thoughtful whilst guiding me through the whole purchase process. Their investment blog is a great help and their expertise evident as they offer a lot of property investment education for free.

Jon

Reached 1M pounds mark in my portfolio

Brett's and his team's knowledge of investing in property has been very impressive, as well as eye-opening. They got me into a new way of thinking, I now think differently from what I did last year. My knowledge has vastly grown in working with them. I don't think of Brett as a Property Consultant. I think of him more as a friend who I can trust to look after my interests. As for results well, I've almost reached the million pounds mark in my portfolio, not bad for a couple from Glasgow.

Wullie & Angie

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.
