Around that time, Barbara began investing in real estate in San Francisco before the tech boom. She then went on to become a major player in commercial real estate, locating retail sites for major chains including Orchard Supply Hardware & Popeye's Chicken.
Her first venture into the vacation rental business came when she opened up her home as a Bed & Breakfast in Venice, CA calling it 'Barbara's Bungalow at the Beach" in the early 2000's. She found the love for providing international travelers with the comforts of home.
