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.

Brendan P - Landlord

Guided me through the whole process

Living in Singapore, I was not close enough to the London property market to understand the market sentiment. The Gladfish team were able to guide me through the whole process. I am now the proud owner of London property and look forward to working with them again on future investments

Riley - Singapore

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

Trustable

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!

Tim

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

London property info from the trusted expert

The buying process was handled professionally and effectively by the Gladfish team. Info provided was relevant and useful with no surprise element. As an overseas investor, I have the benefit of knowing about local London property info from the trusted expert.

Tan

Sends me updates on a regular basis even if I can't respond

Sharon is super helpful and goes out of her way to make things happen.
An example she has asked one of the Galliard staff to meet me this morning at 9 am on site outside of their normal days allocated to be there. I am always travelling and Sharon sends me updates on a regular basis even if I can't respond. Sharon has also put me in touch with a fab mortgage broker who is taking action. THANKS, SHARON!!

Geoff - Buyer

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure 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.

landlord_2019 - Client

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

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

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

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.

Start and increase my property portfolio

Been using Gladfish for 5 years. Very good company. Help me to start and increase my property portfolio. Always available for advice or if I have specific issues. Learnt a lot from them. Will continue to use.

Colin

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

Educational Experience

It has been an educational experience so far. On the whole, the service has been professional and personalised. I have been very impressed with the staff, pleasant, professional, approachable, and just a pleasure to talk to.
