Bonnie Spindler was a pioneer in creating the vacation rental market, just as she and her employer, Zephyr Real Estate were pioneers in developing speculation in San Francisco real estate by using OMI and Ellis Act evictions to “deliver empty” properties, and encourage flipping and tenant displacement.
Spindler's California Vacation Rentals offers a unit at 1550 Fell Street, where she evicted the tenants with an OMI in 2007. California Vacation Rentals also offered properties belonging to real estate speculator and flipper Siobhan Lo as well as fractional financing and Tenancy-in-Common attorney Andy Sirkin. The site of one of her Ellis evictions, 238 Divisadero was also offered as a tourist rental. Currently she focuses on properties that she owns around the state.
Bonnie K. Spindler is the "Victorian Specialist" at Zephyr Real Estate, where she brags about her forte of flipping units.
She has Ellised the following addresses:
She also abused OMI evictions in the Lower Haight in the late 1990s, including at 1550 Fell.
A tenant recently wrote the Mapping Project: "Bonnie Spindler may have Ellised 19 units of her own but she has participated in Ellising hundreds more as a real estate agent at Zephyr - as an example, we were Ellised when she was hired as as the agent to sell the building we lived in. She arranged for the fractional financing, sold each condo, and when one unit wouldn't sell because it was not optimal for an owner to live in, she even got her friend and "stager" to purchase the unit and then rent it out exactly two years after the eviction for 4 times what it was renting for before. She knows the Ellis Act inside out, and profits on more than just her 19 units."
