Our Success Story

Since KENSINGTON was founded in Mallorca, the founders have been focusing on marketing high-quality properties in prime locations. Until 2009, the year of the change of ownership and the rebranding of the company to KENSINGTON Finest Properties International, the focus was on the island of Mallorca. Through a professional reorganisation, KENSINGTON has successively been developed further into a franchise company. 11 licences had been granted in Mallorca and 7 showrooms opened by the end of 2014, making the company one of the market leaders on the Balearic Island. The market entry in the German-speaking countries could be also completed successfully. By the beginning of 2015, KENSINGTON was hence represented in 11 countries on 4 continents.
