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

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.
