Meet Frank McKinney, a true modern day Renaissance man: Real Estate Artist, 6-time International Bestselling Author (in 5 genres), Philanthro-Capitalist, 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 1.8 GPA. Then, with $50 in his pocket and without the benefit of further education, Frank left his native Indiana for Florida in search of his life’s highest calling.
Now, Frank creates real estate markets where others fear to tread. He has built oceanfront spec homes (homes built without a buyer) valued in the tens of millions of dollars, shattering price records with each new project. Frank started with a $50,000 fixer-upper home, and climbed all the way to a $50 million oceanfront mansion!
Frank’s latest creation? His “19 Tropical” – McKinney’s totally new concept in ultra high-end homes was just unveiled and is taking the luxury real estate world by storm (visit the link to see a tremendous amount of international media coverage)!
The Frank McKinney brand has captivated the media and public for over 25 years.
