After leaving school, Brett joined the Royal Navy, where he worked as a marine engineer. He says starting his own property business from scratch is his biggest business achievement and lists being hard working, committed and trustworthy – and his complete lack of weaknesses – as his biggest strengths. Brett’s approach is ‘work hard, play hard, work harder.

He says: I pride myself on not having any negative or bad traits about myself, they’re all good, they’re all positive.”
