10391 Southwest 64th Avenue Inset: Hani El-Naffy

A former Fresh Del Monte Produce executive just paid $5 million for a mansion in Pinecrest, property records show.

Hani El-Naffy’s purchase comes a year after transitioning out of his position as president and COO of the Coral Gables-based company, where he’s currently a board member. Fresh Del Monte Produce is one of the world’s largest producers, distributors and marketers of fresh vegetables and fruits.

Records show El-Naffy and his wife Danielle bought the 9,452-square-foot, nine-bedroom mansion at 10391 Southwest 64th Avenue for about $529 per square foot. The seller is a New York-based entity managed by Kyle Tessiero. The company paid $5.1 million for the property in 2015, which means it just sold at a $100,000 loss.

The home, built in 2014, features floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, a walk-in wine cooler, guest home and pool. Records show the mansion sits on a 37,897-square-foot lot.

In recent years the village of Pinecrest has been home to a number of NBA players, including Dwyane Wade and Chris “Birdman” Anderson. Former Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom sold his Pinecrest mansion after a number of price reductions for nearly $1.9 million in June.
