Meet Frank McKinney: Real Estate Artist, 5-time International Bestselling Author, super hero meets Robin Hood, Philanthro-Capitalist, Risk-Taker, Ultramarathoner, Actor and Visionary who sees opportunities and creates markets where none existed before.
Upon attending his 4th high school in 4 years (he was asked to leave the first 3), Frank earned his high school diploma with a less-than-stellar 1.8 GPA
Then, at 18, with $50 in his pocket and without the benefit of further education, Frank left his native Indiana for Florida in search of what he refers to as his professional highest calling.
In his first Florida job he earned $180 a week, waking at 4:00am, to dig sand traps by hand on a Deerfield Beach golf course.
On May 19, 1986, at 22, Frank McKinney founded his real estate investment company and bought his first $50,000 fixer-upper, selling it a few months later for a $7,000 profit.
Now, 25+ years later, McKinney creates real estate markets where others dare to tread. He has built spec homes (homes built without a buyer) valued in the tens of millions of dollars.
A true Renaissance man with a charming flair, he is without peer in the risky world of speculative high-end real estate, shattering price records with each new project.
And his latest? Frank just created then SOLD "Acqua Liana," the world's largest and most opulent triple certified (USGBC, FGBC & Energy Star) green mansion at $22,900,000!
