David Kain was born and educated in Somerset West, South Africa, and has lived in Somerset West for all his life apart from time abroad for travels and living and working in London. David was one of the co-founders and investors of Hengrave Estates Ltd.
Prior to founding Hengrave Estates Ltd in London, David was the Managing Director of Corcoleum Flooring (Pty) Ltd (1996-2001); this is a family owned business and is one of the oldest flooring companies in South Africa.
Hengrave Estates Ltd was based in Mayfair and focused on the purchasing of properties and apartments in the elite areas of London. Through clever design and contemporary interior, the refurbishment was done to the highest standards after which these highly sought after properties were put on the market.
Hengrave Estates Ltd worked alongside and with some of the top agents in London including Knight Frank, WA Ellis etc and were well known and respected for the quality of their properties and the value added to them.
David moved back to South Africa in 2008 and founded Hengrave Estates (Pty) Ltd with the vision and focus on luxury homes in exclusive areas where he saw a niche and demand in the market. David has now built up a very strong reputation for his approach, his quality and attention to detail and a desire to exceed his clients’ expectations. As a result of this he has built up a strong reputation within the local real estate industry and is regularly approached by homeowners, particularly the German clientele, to renovate/refurbish their homes.
In his spare time David is a keen sailor and regularly competes in sailing regattas locally and internationally.
