Chairman Wong Kin-yip founded Midland Holdings in 1973. Throughout the years, the group has devoted itself to providing real estate broking service for all property sectors - from residential to commercial and industrial. On June 8, 1995, the company became the first and the largest real estate agency to go public in Hong Kong. In April 2000, the company acquired Hong Kong Property Services (Agency) Ltd. to expand further its market share. After years of growth and expansion, Midland Holdings now has more than 300 branches, employing over 5,000 persons. Its standing in the market is solid, to say the least.
