Every year, in Kate’s native Finland, the list of the Top Earners is published in the main newspapers.

Since earnings are confidential in the U.S., the next best analysis of worth is by the value of one’s mansion. Here in Florida, Property Appraisers from all 67 counties value each property every year and we use that data, certified to the state, to compile our list.

In 2013, we approached the Orlando Sentinel with our findings of the Top Mansions in Central Florida.  In 2014, we assembled the same information for the Sentinel once again, and in 2015, we launched a new website, MansionQuest.com, which compiles multiple years of data.
