Connect Homes is an experienced real estate brokerage company in Egypt with what many describe as the best agents. Based on the reviews of past customers, Connect Homes’s agents are honest people that possess a lot of knowledge of Egypt’s real estate market. Not a single past customer mentioned that Connect Homes’s agents made them feel that they were after the commission. This is a very rare result in our survey. It is enough to include Connect Homes among the top real estate companies in Egypt for that result alone. But Connect Homes is more than friendly faces and honesty.

coldwell banker is generally good but it depends on the agent you get. my experience was good and i ended up buying a flat with their help but a friend had a very bad experience with an agent who was not patient with him at all. i think all brokerage companies around the world will have good and bad agents so i think the best thing to do is choose from the start who you are most comfortable with.
totally agree with u. also check the type of properties they list.. so if there are only new properties then it means the broker is working for the developer (not u) bcoz they have incentives from the developers
Correct me if I am mistaken, real estate brokerage companies have contracts and agreements with the multiple high end developers; in the light of such bond, brokers receive up to date info such as units availability and new launches to guarantee providing the optimum residential or investment opportunities to clients.
brokers provide such opportunities after discussing the clients need, budget and personal plans.
I agree with you only if the broker insists on offering a certain project or unit.
also, keep in mind that most of the websites and online search may not be up to date with the latest market updates; from a clients perspective, it is a must to be specific about your need, budget and interests to know which brokerage you should approach accordingly
I have a question – is the commission taken from the landlord or the tenant in Egypt?
Both… From seller 2.5% and from buyer 1.5%
In many cases taken from Both
2.5% from the landlord and 1.5% from the tenant
I’ve checked most of the websites of the brokers listed here and being in the industry for more than 15+ yrs I can say that I agree with most of the choices. But missing one obvious broker called cooing. please check them out and consider them.
Avenues real estate is the no.1 agency in my opinion. they are sooo caring and patient and will show u many options.
I want to invest in Sahel area. Is there a real estate company specialized in this location? I am looking for a company that knows this area very well because the compounds are so many and confusing. I don’t know how to choose one.
Investing in sahel could be very risky because you will rent it out in the summer for 2 months at a good price but maybe it will be empty for 10 months in the year. Only invest in sahel if you are sure the property will be used because you don’t want an asset sitting like that for many years. Maintenance is also difficult along the coast. The humidity is very high and the structure needs to be checked often. I would suggest to put your money in property that is easier to rent out long term.
Investing in sahel is not a high risk at all
Dear kind sir
I happen to work at real estate company that only work in sa7el locations and we ensure that your property would increase in value along the years and if u want to rent it or anything we do that for you free of charge
If u need any help just let me know 🙂
Do use still work in Sahel? What is ur contact details pls
Thanks for conducting this study but the real estate sector is very diverse. I think you should make different top 10 lists based on objective and location like below:
Best brokers for people that want to rent property in etc….
Best brokers for people that want to buy new homes in etc…
Best brokers for resale properties in etc….
i dont like brokers. i feel they are only wanting money. my way is to do research alone and make a list of 5 compounds in the place i want to buy in. then i go and see the compounds with a sales representative of the developer and make my own decision. in my opinion this is the best way.
Be careful when choosing RE/MAX. This is a global franchise with many different companies that use the name in Egypt. Each one has different standards, skills, experience, and portfolios. The best one is already listed here but don’t be tricked into thinking the others are the same.
Is this one what you mean ?
They are rated 3.5 and had bad reviews
Are these options good at selling large projects as factories?
Did u get any help as am trying to do the same thing

I have some properties one is a luxurious villa at South academy for either rent or sale , the other is an office space for rent in banks Street, which of the above are perfect getting the right tenant?
I miss a check up of the Real Estate companies on the Red Sea. Many foreign clients buy there and only a few serious companies advise and sell real estate in a legal and serious way. The market has no trust, the websites have the feeling they are made at the kitchen table and any intermediate contracts make a purchase opaque. Companies are like pushers. An assessment of the companies on site would be appropriate and helpful to help the market and the customers. The name and experience of a company says nothing…I will not invest in Hurghada or the Red Sea area until I know who I can rely on locally and with whom the service does not end with the payment of the commission.
What if I want to buy anappartment from a broker through aqarmap or property finder , what will be the fees to pay?
Thanks for the useful information on your website I used it to contact all of them and ended by using three of them. Now I’m in the process of selecting one to list a Villa for sale in Mubarak Seven – Hurghada Red Sea Egypt. And will come back here with the real evaluation
Hello Reda. Did you manage to find good brokers? please share. Im looking as a developer in Hurghada to sign with reliable and professional brokerage companies.
