Frank McKinney Real Estate "artist," 5-time international bestselling author (with 3 new books just released!), super hero meets Robin Hood, philanthro-capitalist, risk-taker 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 would later refer 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 maverick 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? Mr. McKinney 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, and will soon commence another masterpiece, "Crystalina," a $30 million green home reflecting South Pacific influences. With the sale of Acqua Liana, Frank McKinney proves once again to be a market maker, and declares the real estate market "bubble proof" if approached properly, as he references in great detail in his new, bestselling real estate book Burst This! Frank McKinney's Bubble-Proof Real Estate Strategies.
