Frank Malone was raised across the U.S. as one of four sons in a Navy family. Upon retirement from the Navy, Frank’s father Bob Malone (now part of the Malone Team with Frank) joined his father Bill Malone’s real estate company in Gulf Shores in 1978, and Baldwin County became Frank’s home. After graduating from Foley High School in 1981, Frank earned a B.S. Degree in Accounting from the University of South Alabama in 1985, and received numerous awards on the South Alabama Cross Country and Track Teams during his college career.
After a short career as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand (now Price Waterhouse Coopers) in Birmingham, Frank set off on a 9-year international career in construction accounting and ultimately managed an industrial equipment auction site for Ritchie Bros. in the Philippines. During his international work, Frank lived in South Korea, Egypt, and the Philippines and traveled throughout the world sourcing construction equipment for resale.
In 1996, Frank came home to Gulf Shores to join the family real estate business with his father and numerous partners, and has been managing, developing, listing and selling real estate ever since. Together, Bob & Frank have over 55 years of real estate experience. Currently Frank is the managing broker of the Bellator Real Estate & Development Gulf Shores office. Frank serves on the City of Gulf Shores Planning Commission, is a past president of the Baldwin County Association of Realtors, and is a school board member for Gulf Shores City Schools.
Frank is married to Jennifer Malone, and they enjoy raising their 3 crazy children, Benjamin, Molly, and Nora in Gulf Shores.
