A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Thursday, April 2, in conjunction with the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce welcoming McKinleys only waterfront community Seaside Villas located in beautiful Gulfport, Florida. The event was attended by a variety of Chamber ambassadors who were extremely impressed with the improvements and design of the property since purchased by McKinley.

The staff at Seaside Villas has reached out to the community of Gulfport and has established a truly successful community relationship. This beachfront, bohemian community has been wonderfully embraced and improved by the McKinley team.

We are extremely proud and excited about this latest acquisition to our Central Florida growth, stated Albert M. Berriz, CEO of McKinley.
