Although born in Sheffield, my childhood was spent in North Wales. As the years progressed I completed work placements at the House of Commons, Hat Trick Productions, various legal firms and BBC Wales. I completed a 2:1 law degree at Durham University.
I first became fascinated with property when my parents moved house in 2002. After leaving Durham I pursued a career in estate agency and now lead the head office of Wright Marshall, based in Tarporley, Cheshire.
My other interests are varied: I’ve been Chairman of Crewe YMCA since 2006 and pioneered a thriving and innovative form of Church, known as Church@28. I love eating out, listening to music, learning the piano and playing squash - despite consistently poor results – and have been an avid Manchester United fan for 28 years.
Robert Reed has been broadcasting on national television and radio since the age of 16, with extensive live and pre-recorded experience both in studio and on location. At the age of 17, he famously appeared on hit BBC satirical show 'Have I Got News for You’. His recent media work has included interviews and contributions on BBC Breakfast and as a 'midnight expert' for BBC Radio 5 Live’s Phil Williams show. He also writes a regular blog about the property market and estate agency.
Robert leads the Head Office of Wright Marshall – a unique, market leading firm of estate agents, valuers and auctioneers – and so is conversant in a broad range of property-related matters. He oversees around £50million-worth of transactions a year and has gained a formidable industry reputation for innovation, market knowledge and well-developed people skills.
Having burst onto the political scene at the age of 16 by delivering a memorable speech to the Conservative Party Conference, Robert subsequently became the youngest ever panellist on ‘Have I Got News for You’. Ever since, he has taken a keen interest in politics and current affairs. His broadcasting experience has ranged from incisive analysis of important news stories to light-hearted contributions on various programmes.
