Strobel Family Investments
A quarter-century ago, Bob Strobel and his business partner decided to part ways. The two had started out selling real estate but, over time, acquired a few properties of their own. When they decided to split, they flipped a coin to determine who would get which of their assets. Bob got a property in downtown Burien, which they had been leasing to a small diner-style, family restaurant. When Bob and his wife passed away in 1998, they left the property to their seven daughters—Robin, Carol, Sally, Betty, Susan, Janet, and Julia—who have managed it as Strobel Family Investments ever since.
