Brett Alegre-Wood

London and UK Property Expert, Chairman and Founder, Portfolio Director and Professional Speaker.

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.

Invest without any stress

I am constantly busy with far too many priorities fighting for my attention. I came across Gladfish Property Investment by accident and its been a really good experience to date. Ryan has provided helpful professional advise that has opened the door for me to invest without any stress. Answering questions patiently and providing a service way beyond my expectations, truly delighted by the amount of handholding I have had to date. Cannot recommend them enough, the company overall for their flexibility and going the extra mile! A real surprise

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.

Very good help and service

Very good help and service from James.

I was throughly impressed by their team

Got in touch with Gladfish Property just by chance, while i was considering investing in the UK as a non resident,. i was throughly impressed by their team in our initial meeting and decided to invest in two off plan properties which are now nearing completion nearly two years later. Excellent experience with them so far, as not only do they pre-empt all the needs of their clients but also offer a range services post purchase of properties.

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.

Very grateful for their service

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

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.

Keep everything simple

Our circumstances were a bit different. I am Australian and Mike is English, our ideal lifestyle is to spend time in both countries. Gladfish helped us to be aware of our needs and mapped out a plan that involved building a portfolio large enough for Mike to leave work. I am happy to say that we have achieved this. The best thing about working with Gladfish is that they keep everything very simple but at the same time does not deviate from the principles. Brett himself supports and educates you through the emotional and financial aspects of portfolio building. Through this certainty, we have been able to secure a portfolio of 9 properties.

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.

Very professional service

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

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.

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.

Successful in property development

We didn't like the idea of paying large up-front fees, nor of developing a portfolio so quickly, or indeed of paying £2000 for attending seminars on how to build up a successful portfolio. We came across Gladfish on the internet. There was something refreshingly different about Brett's philosophy. Instead of "the big sell", he was interested in developing the investor's knowledge of how to become successful in property development. Gladfish enables clients to develop their portfolio gradually and more importantly "cash flowed" to reduce possible problems at a later stage. Brett and the team have assisted us to develop a £1.4 million portfolio both here and in Spain and have assisted with any snags as they invariably crop up.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

make good investments in the UK

They helped us to make good investments in the UK.

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.

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.

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.

Advise is given as and when needed

The product and service that are offered are clear. The processes are too slick to believe sometimes. Advice is given as and when needed to ensure you are comfortable with the developments as they happen. My property consultant knew my needs even before I did!

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!

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.

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!

Good communication

Very helpful and informative team with good communication between customer & consultant.

Scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction

Initial scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction. No hype, no pressure - just informed facts - presented clearly. Very professional company.

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

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!

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...

Great service

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

Helped through some hiccups

The team are extremely professional and gave us sound advice on the property investments we have purchased. They've been very patient with our numerous questions concerning the purchase and have helped enormously through some hiccups.

All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.

Gladfish has delivered everything they said they would, both painlessly and at predicted costs. I found myself getting extremely excited at the prospect of investing in property, especially because we have this idea for years but never quite dared to take the plunge. All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.

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!

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.

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.

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 Gladfish Team to guide you through the journey. Diligent, efficient, dogged and resilient. They are a wonderful bunch.

You can always count on

A neophyte in the property business like me would be confounded by the maze of documents and processes involved in a typical transaction. However, you can always count on the resilience and competence of the Gladfish Team, especially the duo of Caroline and Neelam, to sort you out. Diligent, efficient, dogged and reliable. They are a wonderful bunch.

professional and efficient

I have now dealt with Gladfish on 2 occasions, and both times they were extremely professional and efficient. Highly recommend.

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.

Patient and Professional

Great experience all around with the team at Gladfish, in particular, Dan Varnaseri and James Cox. Patient and Professional despite my own ever-changing circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.

Make the correct decision

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

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.

Made our retirement a decent one

There is no doubt we have entered into this whole enterprise because of Gladfish. Gladfish is always happy to impart their expertise to help us provide a better future and make our retirement a decent one. A big thank you for the dream of a better future for my family.

Approachable, helpful and knowledgeable

I've worked with Ryan from Gladfish for a few years and he is very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable! I would definitely recommend Gladfish and Ryan to future property investors.

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.

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.

We have since increased this to 3

Though we were initially only looking at a single purchase, we have since increased this to 3, because the team make us feel very confident in what we, and they, are doing. We would recommend them to anyone.

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...

Make it all possible and effortless

I have been extremely impressed with Gladfish. My situation as a first time overseas investor (from South Africa) had its challenges and frustrations. It simply would not have been possible without Gladfish! Everyone I dealt with went the extra mile to make it all possible and effortless.

Team works at your pace and is not pushy

James at Gladfish was really supportive. He took an interest and really listened to our needs. He had a really good knowledge of how things worked and put our mind at rest by answering all of our questions. The team works at your pace is not pushy and seek to provide you with all the information you need to make a balanced decision. It was a great experience working with James and the team and we would definitely recommend them if you want a well thought out strategy that works.

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.

Prioritises customer satisfaction

Gladfish prides itself as a company that prioritizes customer satisfaction. The team totally embodies this principle. Completely professional in their manner, open to and approachable for discussion and always available should any questions arise. A perfect example of why Gladfish has the great reputation it does.

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.

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

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."

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.

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.

Excellent service

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

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

Everything was made very clear from the start

What I liked about the Gladfish experience is that everything was made very clear from the start. The whole journey was mapped out. Everything was exactly 'what it said on the tin'. There were no unexpected surprises.

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.

Useful research resouce

Gladfish offer researched, property investment opportunities across the UK. The team are knowledgeable and thoughtful whilst guiding buyers through the whole purchase process. Their Top 100 investment blog is a useful research resource where they offer property investment education articles and videos free.

Educational material is fantastic

The high quality free educational material is fantastic! The guidance from the whole team is excellent. It's great doing business with you guys and I look forward to a long fruitful relationship!

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!

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.

Responsible company

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!

Very positive experience

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

Getting Personal with Brett

BrettAlegreWood-Family2017

Some of my highlights

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.</p>

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Approachable, helpful and knowledgeable

I've worked with Ryan from Gladfish for a few years and he is very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable! I would definitely recommend Gladfish and Ryan to future property investors.

Prioritises customer satisfaction

Gladfish prides itself as a company that prioritizes customer satisfaction. The team totally embodies this principle. Completely professional in their manner, open to and approachable for discussion and always available should any questions arise. A perfect example of why Gladfish has the great reputation it does.

Educational material is fantastic

The high quality free educational material is fantastic! The guidance from the whole team is excellent. It's great doing business with you guys and I look forward to a long fruitful relationship!

Keep everything simple

Our circumstances were a bit different. I am Australian and Mike is English, our ideal lifestyle is to spend time in both countries. Gladfish helped us to be aware of our needs and mapped out a plan that involved building a portfolio large enough for Mike to leave work. I am happy to say that we have achieved this. The best thing about working with Gladfish is that they keep everything very simple but at the same time does not deviate from the principles. Brett himself supports and educates you through the emotional and financial aspects of portfolio building. Through this certainty, we have been able to secure a portfolio of 9 properties.

Invest without any stress

I am constantly busy with far too many priorities fighting for my attention. I came across Gladfish Property Investment by accident and its been a really good experience to date. Ryan has provided helpful professional advise that has opened the door for me to invest without any stress. Answering questions patiently and providing a service way beyond my expectations, truly delighted by the amount of handholding I have had to date. Cannot recommend them enough, the company overall for their flexibility and going the extra mile! A real surprise

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.

Advise is given as and when needed

The product and service that are offered are clear. The processes are too slick to believe sometimes. Advice is given as and when needed to ensure you are comfortable with the developments as they happen. My property consultant knew my needs even before I did!

Helped through some hiccups

The team are extremely professional and gave us sound advice on the property investments we have purchased. They've been very patient with our numerous questions concerning the purchase and have helped enormously through some hiccups.

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...

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...

Good communication

Very helpful and informative team with good communication between customer & consultant.

Team works at your pace and is not pushy

James at Gladfish was really supportive. He took an interest and really listened to our needs. He had a really good knowledge of how things worked and put our mind at rest by answering all of our questions. The team works at your pace is not pushy and seek to provide you with all the information you need to make a balanced decision. It was a great experience working with James and the team and we would definitely recommend them if you want a well thought out strategy that works.

Very professional service

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

Responsible company

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!

Excellent service

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

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.

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.

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.

Scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction

Initial scepticism gave way to complete satisfaction. No hype, no pressure - just informed facts - presented clearly. Very professional company.

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!

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.

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!

professional and efficient

I have now dealt with Gladfish on 2 occasions, and both times they were extremely professional and efficient. Highly recommend.

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."

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.

Everything was made very clear from the start

What I liked about the Gladfish experience is that everything was made very clear from the start. The whole journey was mapped out. Everything was exactly 'what it said on the tin'. There were no unexpected surprises.

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 Gladfish Team to guide you through the journey. Diligent, efficient, dogged and resilient. They are a wonderful bunch.

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!

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.

Patient and Professional

Great experience all around with the team at Gladfish, in particular, Dan Varnaseri and James Cox. Patient and Professional despite my own ever-changing circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.

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.

Very positive experience

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

Make the correct decision

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

You can always count on

A neophyte in the property business like me would be confounded by the maze of documents and processes involved in a typical transaction. However, you can always count on the resilience and competence of the Gladfish Team, especially the duo of Caroline and Neelam, to sort you out. Diligent, efficient, dogged and reliable. They are a wonderful bunch.

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.

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!

Great service

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

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.

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.

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.

I was throughly impressed by their team

Got in touch with Gladfish Property just by chance, while i was considering investing in the UK as a non resident,. i was throughly impressed by their team in our initial meeting and decided to invest in two off plan properties which are now nearing completion nearly two years later. Excellent experience with them so far, as not only do they pre-empt all the needs of their clients but also offer a range services post purchase of properties.

Useful research resouce

Gladfish offer researched, property investment opportunities across the UK. The team are knowledgeable and thoughtful whilst guiding buyers through the whole purchase process. Their Top 100 investment blog is a useful research resource where they offer property investment education articles and videos free.

Make it all possible and effortless

I have been extremely impressed with Gladfish. My situation as a first time overseas investor (from South Africa) had its challenges and frustrations. It simply would not have been possible without Gladfish! Everyone I dealt with went the extra mile to make it all possible and effortless.

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.

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

We have since increased this to 3

Though we were initially only looking at a single purchase, we have since increased this to 3, because the team make us feel very confident in what we, and they, are doing. We would recommend them to anyone.

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.

Successful in property development

We didn't like the idea of paying large up-front fees, nor of developing a portfolio so quickly, or indeed of paying £2000 for attending seminars on how to build up a successful portfolio. We came across Gladfish on the internet. There was something refreshingly different about Brett's philosophy. Instead of "the big sell", he was interested in developing the investor's knowledge of how to become successful in property development. Gladfish enables clients to develop their portfolio gradually and more importantly "cash flowed" to reduce possible problems at a later stage. Brett and the team have assisted us to develop a £1.4 million portfolio both here and in Spain and have assisted with any snags as they invariably crop up.

Made our retirement a decent one

There is no doubt we have entered into this whole enterprise because of Gladfish. Gladfish is always happy to impart their expertise to help us provide a better future and make our retirement a decent one. A big thank you for the dream of a better future for my family.

make good investments in the UK

They helped us to make good investments in the UK.

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.

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.

Very good help and service

Very good help and service from James.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.

Gladfish has delivered everything they said they would, both painlessly and at predicted costs. I found myself getting extremely excited at the prospect of investing in property, especially because we have this idea for years but never quite dared to take the plunge. All doubts about the sanity of investing in property went away.

Very grateful for their service

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