  1. Great properties. These ladies plainly get to deal with some fascinating deals. Good to see ladies doing well in what has always been a man’s game.

  2. Why does everybody nowadays boast about their charity giving and philanthropy! It seems as if it’s a new marketing tool to show what wonderful, warm, honest human beings they are. In days gone by one kept one’s charitable work quiet. So many vulgarians about now. I suppose even Donald Trump is a philanthropist.
