I worked for Sears and there was a guywho was a manager and he went into real estate and suggested it. What was the gender mix in this business then? It was pretty balanced. David: Of course, we never thought about it. Bonnie: We didn’t. We worked at a nice company out of Santa Barbara. That’s where you met David? Yep.

We just searched for properties and if we found them, we went out together.
Bonnie: We work together with some people and we work separately with some people. It just depends upon the situation.
