Sprift meets the Ed Mead, talks property data
We were delighted when Sprift Founder & CEO Matt Gilpin was invited to join Ed Mead of Viewber on his popular property podcast Ed Talks to discuss the property data and the UK housing market.
About the Ed Talks Podcast
Ed is high profile authority within the property sector, and has been involved in the industry for almost 40 years. He spent 22 years at Douglas & Gordon before going on to launch Viewber – the world’s first property viewing service that uses trusted members of the public available to accompany buyers and tenants anywhere in the UK, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Alongside Viewber he started the Ed Talks podcast to pick the brains of some of the top influencers and thought leaders of the UK property market, and the PropTech scene in particular. His interview style and choice of guests makes for a relaxed, but informative listen.
