Company History

In 2006 Rivermead Global Property was set up by Neil Hollingsworth and Jason Bannister as a Sole Trader Company, and started to offer properties in over 14 countries.

In early 2007 we were introduced to the Hurghada real estate market and we quickly became a specialist in this market.

After a couple of years selling properties in Hurghada we noticed a lack of quality affordable furniture, so in 2009 we added Rivermead Global Furniture.

We decided to change the companies operating name to Rivermead Global bringing both the Property and Furniture companies under one name, around this time we decided to focus on just two counties.

At this time we also removed all our other countries and focused on Egypt and Turkey, drilling down even further to the areas of Hurghada and Sahl Hasheesh in Egypt and Altinkum and Akbuk in Turkey making sure we could offer the best possible advice and guidance as we could focus on the rules and regulations in only two countries.  This led us to winning Four AIPP (Association of International Property Professionals) Awards for:  Best Customer Service 2010/2011, Best Small Agent Multiple Countries 2011 and Most User Friendly Website 2013. (The AIPP have stopped holding these award ceremonies)

We quickly found we were operating more in Egypt than Turkey, even putting our own UK staff on the ground in Hurghada, giving us the ability to provide an even better service.  In early 2014 due to the way the company was growing, the decision was taken to change from Sole Trader to Limited Company.  As of April 2014 we became Rivermead Global Ltd, and in September 2014 we added a Rental and Property Management Service to complement our already very successful Real Estate and Furniture Companies.  As with everything we do, the service provided has been the highest seen in Hurghada which has seen us receive 43 positive reviews in just over 12 months (as of Jan 2016) on the rental website Air BnB with many repeat bookings and great rental returns for our owners.   In 2015 we went one step further and became a fully registered Egyptian Company under Rivermead Global for Real Estate and Furniture becoming the only UK based Multiple Award Winning Agency with registered companies in both the UK and Egypt.

With so many years behind us, unmatched experience and knowledge plus an extensive list of contacts to ensure we can get anything done; plus being the longest established and only Multiple Award Winning Agency working in the Hurghada real estate, furniture and rental markets, we have decided to focus solely on Hurghada as of 2016.  We see this move as one of the most positive decisions we have made as this ensures, we remain the Hurghada:  Property, Furniture and Rental Experts, and our clients continue to receive the right guidance and advice from a company passionate about making sure what could be one of the most terrifying moves they make, is as safe and as enjoyable as possible.

We intend to build on being the UK’s Number 1 Most Trusted Overseas Property Agency (FreeIndex 2016), to become the world’s Most Trusted Overseas Property Agency, and anyone looking for Property, Furniture or Rentals in Hurghada and contact Rivermead Global Ltd will benefit from our dedication to being the best.
