KENSINGTON strengthens its presence on the Spanish mainland

KENSINGTON Finest Properties International continues to expand on the Spanish mainland.

KENSINGTON continues to expand its presence in one of the most up-and-coming regions on the Spanish mainland with the granting of the regional master licence for residential properties for Andalusia, as well as the granting of the licence for KENSINGTON Commercial Properties, the investment and commercial property division of the KENSINGTON Group.

Franchisee for the autonomous region in the south of Spain is the company Andalucia Finest Properties S.L. The managing director Carolina Pallarés was born in Valencia and grew up in Malaga. She has excellent experience in the real estate sector as well as in the sector of decoration and design.

In addition to the marketing of residential properties, Pallarés and her team, investment partner Jose de la Maza, a local real estate investor and Eduardo Guernica, a sales manager with experience in the media and consumer goods sectors, will also be responsible for the development and expansion of the investment and commercial real estate sector in the region: „The province of Málaga accounts for 43% of the value of all residential properties sold in Andalusia, due to strong demand from international buyers on the Costa del Sol. Furthermore commercial and investment properties are a promising sector and Málaga is already the country’s third largest investment focus in the real estate sector after Madrid and Barcelona. The province has seen the largest population growth in Spain and is becoming a very valued place to work and live“, says the businesswoman.

Shujat Sarwar, Head of Franchise at KENSINGTON, is delighted about the recently acquired partners and emphasises: “With the award of the regional master licence for Andalusia, we are setting another milestone in the international expansion of our brand. I am even more pleased that the new partners are building up and managing the Malaga branch, one of the most important markets in the region, themselves. Our customers can look forward to excellent and competent local service”.

The goals of KENSINGTON Andalusia are clearly defined: „We plan, together with other KENSINGTON offices in Spain, to develop KENSINGTON into one of the market leaders on the Spanish mainland,” adding: “The real estate market in the south of Spain is experiencing an incredible transformation, as demand becomes more global and the number of new buildings of much higher quality than in previous decades increases sharply. Clients have also become more demanding and are increasingly looking to brands with reputation and expertise here. We plan to offer our clients a complete package of services through a strong network of partners, selecting only the best properties to meet the needs of KENSINGTON and the network.“
