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.
