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 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...

Manish

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with

Gladfish are an absolute pleasure to work with on all fronts. Professional and rapid with their approach. I highly recommend them!

Kas

Take all the hassle out of property investing

A great company to use to take all the hassle out of property investing. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and most importantly well educated within all types of property investing. My personal experience with Ryan who is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and take all the pressure out of what can be a potentially stressful process, even when that process may fall within their own holiday!

Adam

Purchase process exciting and painless

Gladfish indeed did a great job. It's not my first buy-to-let property when I met them the first time, but I've learned the fundamentals of being a property investor from them. The whole purchase process exciting and painless. The team was very relaxed (which made me relax) but responsive to my questions. Great!

Ian

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.

Libby

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

Excellent service

Excellent customer service, professional advise, customer, follow up and post transaction monitoring by Manny

Banjo

Your success is my success

My property consultant has been very helpful and understanding of the difficult circumstances surrounding my ability to even make time to talk. He has struck a very good balance between assisting without being too intrusive. From what I have witnessed Gladfish deserves its success. Your success is my success!

Ian

Very grateful for their service

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

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.

The team clearly enjoy helping others

Gladfish have been very pleasant and professional throughout. I would never have taken the plunge if I had not met Ryan. He set my nerves at ease and showed me the ropes. The team clearly enjoy helping others. Thanks so much

Nicole

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.

Benita

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

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

Very good help and service

Very good help and service from James.

Jiten

Great service

Great service, with the Gladfish team going out of their way to answer your questions and guide you through process!

Nadim

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

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

Your success is my success

My property consultant has been very helpful and understanding of the difficult circumstances surrounding my ability to even make time to talk. He has struck a very good balance between assisting without being too intrusive. From what I have witnessed Gladfish deserves its success. Your success is my success!

Ian

Worked with my finances perfectly

Great company with a superb team and customer service! Very good selection of property investment opportunities. I spoke to Ryan, he is efficient, knowledgeable and helped me a lot to invest in property that worked with my finances perfectly, for which I am truly grateful. Would recommend this company to any investor.
