Ed Mead Advisory

Being an agent has been a real passion and after 40 years it makes sense to continue to advise people looking to buy or sell and make the right introductions where necessary. Genuine depth and breadth of experience is combined with an exceptional black book. Helping people BEFORE they decide on what to buy or how to sell can make a huge difference. ed@ed-mead.com

Speaking and writing
Increasingly the future of the industry is puzzling those examining it. My unique experience on all sides, inc high street, online agency and PropTech, gives a unique insight into that future and it seems many are willing to employ me to talk to their interested groups, investors, bankers, entrepreneurs etc.. get in touch if you’d like me to talk. Current demands include the FT Festival, Keynote at the RICS Resi conference and City talks to interested investors.

At a time of unprecedented low returns for investors, knowing where to place your money in property is tough. Talk to me.
