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.
What Our Clients Say
I have had a great experience with Ezytac. Everything was done promptly and professionally. I have been dealt with by Sophie who has been so helpful and friendly throughout and cannot do enough to help me, she even arranged for my flat to be cleaned as a gesture for a lack of communication on someone else's behalf! Great service!
professional and efficient
I have now dealt with Gladfish on 2 occasions, and both times they were extremely professional and efficient. Highly recommend.
Sharon is a great person to work with. She communicates regularly and has kept me informed of the progress of my property exchange/completion. Ezytrac is good at this and also at providing regular monthly statements, invoicing, and reporting for billing purposes. Makes my job easier as a landlord.
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.
Very professional service
Ryan was excellent, extremely helpful from start to finish with friendly and very professional 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.
I can rely on
I have been working with Gladfish for years now, and I have to say, I have never looked back. I would recommend them to anyone, from first-time investors to seasoned investment professionals. I started off as a very nervous first-time buyer back in 2012, and over the last few years, their property consultant has helped me develop my confidence and knowledge in property investment by being a huge support. They are friendly, professional and approachable, but most importantly, passionate about what they do which is what I believe distinguishes Gladfish from other companies. Property Consultants always have time for their clients, on occasions, I have been known to call them up at 10 pm at night with questions about an upcoming property purchase! The whole of the Gladfish team seem client-focused, and they are also extremely well connected. From the day you become a client, all the hassles of property purchasing/investment get taken off your plate (if that’s what you want) and it just makes everything so much less stressful. I’m so glad to know I have a company I can rely on to buy my properties off for life.
Excellent at finding good solutions to changing circumstances
Caroline has been excellent at finding good solutions to changing circumstances. Keeps track of things so I don't have to. Systematic and timely in all affairs.
Wonderful support and service
Great team and special thanks to Caroline! Communication and support was seamless throughout process. Credit to the Ezytrac team. Thank you!
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.
Getting Personal with Brett
My Greatest Accomplishments
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.

What Our Clients Say
I chose them as my trusted advisors
I've made some investments through Gladfish and I'm truly Glad (pun intended!) that I chose them as my trusted advisors! Both Ritesh and Manny have been extremely efficient, ever available, and no request is ever too much! Over time I've built a personal relationship with Manny and I've no hesitation on relying on his advise and judgement in this industry - always very engaging with honest, timely advice with no BS! 🙂 I'll be counting on Gladfish in the long term...
Helpful good service
I would like to say Sarah has been very helpful in helping me to get my deposit back from the landlord. She has been good at replying to emails.
We have been working with Ezytrac for several years, the property management team is efficient and quick to authorise works on behalf of landlords and tenants.
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.
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.
Buying property remotely can be with a huge risk, this you need people you can rely on and trust. Gladfish have been a one-stop shop for me. I have found them reliable, friendly and deliver what they say. Thank you for making this process so simple!
Had email exchange with Helen today. I found Helen very professional and polite - quick response time to my emails! Thank you very much Helen 🙂
Excellent customer service, professional advise, customer, follow up and post transaction monitoring by Manny
I have used Gladfish for over 3 years and bought 2 properties with them. They are always supportive particularly Manny and Ritesh from start to finish -e.g. cash flow analysis, property selections, purchasing, progression, financing, completion and then property management with Ezytrac. They are always helpful offering best advice possible in all aspects of property management and replying to my enquiries promptly. Gladfish is an efficient, responsive and responsible company and l would strongly recommend using their services including Ezytrac!
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.
