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.

Professionalism

Many thanks to Caroline Bevis of Ezytrac who coordinated the progression of my 3rd buy to let property from my payment of the initial deposit through to completion. Caroline kept me up to date with regular progress reports, requested info from me when required, and responded in a timely professional manner to any requests initiated by me. A well earned 5 stars from me to you Caroline.

Outstanding Support

Once again, Caroline provided outstanding support during the purchase of a property. She was in frequent contact with the seller, solicitor and myself, ensuring that the purchase was progressing as quickly as possible.

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.

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.

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.

George

professional and efficient

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

Maksim

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

Great service

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

Nadim

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."

Tony and Fiona

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

make good investments in the UK

They helped us to make good investments in the UK.

Ines

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.

Julie

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

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.
