About Frank Mountain
Based out of Southampton, Frank Mountain is an accomplished property developer and hospitality expert, as well as the Founder of Versant Development. Initially beginning his career in banking and insurance, Frank found himself enjoying the process of securing property funding to clients and decided to venture into real estate himself. Now, over two decades later, he has become one of the leaders in the residential and commercial property sector and is regarded as an expert in the UK property market.
Though he possesses extensive knowledge in all aspects of the real estate industry, Frank Mountain is particularly fond of property development. The ability to make something from scratch—a piece of land that has little value—and turn it into a thing of beauty is a great challenge, which makes it doubly rewarding. As a property developer, he specialises in shopping centre acquisition and development and speculative residential transactions, but he is also skilled in asset management, acquisition, and sale on.
As the Head of Versant, Frank Mountain is proud to lead a team of industry experts who possess extensive knowledge, experience, and skills across every aspect of real estate. Since the company’s inception, it has gained a reputation for reliability, value for clients, and project quality. Frank believes that the success of Versant is due, in part, to their strong partnerships with other industry professionals, including professional advisors, contractors and subcontractors, as well as their commitment to comprehensive project implementation plans.
Since beginning his career in real estate in 1998, Frank Mountain has proven his place among industry leaders in the United Kingdom. His vast network of connections has allowed him to see through dozens of residential and commercial real estate developments across a variety of geographical locations. More recently, Frank has delved into the hospitality industry with the purchase of The Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa in Wiltshire.
When he’s not overseeing the development of a property, Frank is usually talking cars. He possesses a deep admiration for both modern and classic makes and models. A passionate car buff, he spent many years travelling around the world racing cars and, in his words, “loves going fast.”
