    Smart landlords keep their eye on the prize

    Welcome to the final instalment of "Smart Landlord" 2019, which as been running throughout January to assist tribesters in getting the year off to a positive and flying start!

    "Smart Landlord" also kicked off Property Tribes' 10th anniversary celebrations, which will continue throughout the year as we mark a decade of supporting landlords in being smart, and therefore profitable.

    Today we end on a high note as we hear the views of Ed Mead, one of the most respected figures in the property sector.

    Ed has 37 years of experience in estate agency, is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and also writes columns for the broadsheets, as well as having a regular LBC slot with Clive Bull doing a live property Q&A.

    Ed left Douglas & Gordon as Executive Director after founding a radical outsourced viewing service for estate agents and landlords, http://www.Viewber.co.uk, who we are proud to have as a commercial partner of Property Tribes.

    Who better to close out our "Smart Landlord" campaign than someone who has witnessed at least 3 property cycles?
