About Frank McKinney

Frank Mckinney
The “Philanthro-Capitalist”

Meet Frank McKinney: Real Estate Artist, 6-time International Bestselling Author (in 5 genres), superhero meets Robin Hood, 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. His vision and risk-taking have been the subject of numerous international television, radio and print features including Oprah, ABC’s 20/20, cover of USA Today, CBS’ The Early Show, FOX, CNN, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, HGTV, The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Fortune, Barrons, and in over 2,000 additional TV and print stories.

Ever the Renaissance man, Frank added another talent to his vast list of accomplishments. He recently had a lead role in the movie “Infidel,” a new psycho-spiritual thriller (www.InfidelTheMovie.net), and also played an important part in the new Christian short film “Highway to Hell.” http://geo952.wix.com/highwaytohell.

Frank McKinney is now known around the globe as a Real Estate “Artist,” and the creative force behind some of the world’s finest and most magnificent oceanfront mansions ever built on speculation.

Each of the estate homes Frank creates and sells is a one-of-a-kind work of art, infused with vivid imagination and designed on a canvas of sun-drenched Atlantic ocean. Take a minute to visit Frank’s Oceanfront Estates page.

Frank McKinney’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)!

In addition to 19 Tropical, Frank created then SOLD “Acqua Liana,” the world’s largest and most opulent triple certified (USGBC, FGBC & Energy Star) green mansion at $22,900,000!

With the creation of 19 Tropical, the sale of Acqua Liana and dozens of other oceanfront properties, Frank proves 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.

Prior to the sale of “Acqua Liana,” he sold, with an asking price of $50 Million, the largest and most expensive spec home ever created. It contained 72 rooms, 32,000 square feet, 12 bedrooms, 18 baths, and a 14 car garage!

Since his first $2.2 million oceanfront spec home, Frank has created and sold 43 oceanfront properties with an average selling price over $14 million.

Combining his spiritual highest calling with his personal and professional activities is integral to Frank’s success, and he believes it is the key to your success as well.

Frank spends quite a bit of his time on philanthro-capitalistic causes, specifically, his Caring House Project Foundation, www.chpf.org.

In 1998 Frank & Nilsa McKinney founded the Caring House Project Foundation, a non-profit (501c3) organization that provides housing and a self-sustaining existence for homeless families in The Caribbean, South America, Africa, Indonesia, and here in the United States of America.

The Caring House Project Foundation’s current international involvements have been focused in the country of Haiti, the poorest country in world.

By the end of 2017, CHPF will have built 24 self-sufficient villages, sheltering 10,616 people in Haiti alone. Thousands more are alive because of our (and your) efforts.

CHPF is not just focused abroad. Since its inception in 1998, right here in the United States, CHPF has honored hundreds of donation requests that fit its mission statement.

CHPF enjoys a certain level of flexibility that allows it to immediately act upon worthy, verifiable requests, many right here in America.

Frank McKinney: The Ultramarathoner

Frank McKinney is also an accomplished ultramarathon runner, defined as one who runs races of over 100 continuous miles.

Frank’s favorite, the Death Valley Badwater 135-mile Ultramarathon is the toughest race in the world according to National Geographic.

It is invitation only, with 100 runners being selected from 25+ countries. It runs 135-miles non-stop through the Death Valley dessert in July and starts -282 feet below sea level. The air temperatures exceed 130 degrees, and ground temps are 200+ degrees.

As the race traverses those 135 miles through the Mojave, it goes over three mountain ranges, is run on blacktop pavement, and finishes nearly 8,500 feet above sea level. There are no aid stations.

Since the inception of the race in 1977 only 18 people have finished Badwater 7 or more times. Frank is now one of them, and hopes to add an 8th finish on July 25, 2018!

Founder of The Caring House Project

I began by doing my best to live by the life mantra that happens to be a passage from the Gospel of Luke, 12:48: “Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more demanded of the person entrusted with more.”

I felt the best way to reflect that was by starting a foundation that cared for those who had no shelter.

After all, when you strip it down, I am simply in the housing business, and felt I should be providing that most basic need to those who have no home.

Stability begins with a home. Without the need of shelter being met, there is little hope.

What started so small, providing housing for $1 a month to elderly homeless people here in the United States, has grown tremendously.

CHPF has impacted the poorest of the poor in the countries of Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Africa and here in the U.S.

By mid-2018 CHPF will have built 25 self-sufficient villages in 22 Haitian cities in the last 15 years.
