Luxury Real Estate: Admit it. What doesnít sound farfetched, preposterous, and sophomoric about a self-made, book-writing, real estate mogul who claims to be a daredevil real estate speculator all with the flair of preening rock star? Meet my new role model, Frank McKinney, superstar real estate speculator, author, motivational speaker, and philanthropic humanitarian (cymbal crash)!
He is a stunt man, a daredevil, an entertainer, and, finally, a hugely successful developer of luxury real estate properties. For more than 20 years, he has blazed a trail as a developer and speculator of extraordinarily fabulous oceanfront estates. Despite the flashy signature-style showmanship, McKinney credits responsible stewardship as being the key to his success in all facets of life.
Frankís latest project is an eco-mansion of distinct Italian influence titled Acqua Liana. This is an oceanfront property on 1.6 acres with a private 150-foot waterfront and private beach in Manalapan, Fla. The property, which is priced at $24.3 million, also boats a private dock capable of mooring a 120-foot yacht. There is even a glass-bottom floor in the LEED-certified dwelling with more than 15,000 square feet of living space. It doesnít get any closer to surreal than this one.
McKinney has been seen on Oprah, ABCís 20/20, and numerous media outlets from TV to print to online. His successful ways have been acknowledged by the likes of Donald Trump and the Wall Street Journal.
