When Bob Boog finally escaped his family home and the constant chatter about real estate, it was to attend UCLA on a merit scholarship. Finally, he thought, he was free from a business he had no desire to be a part of.

However, shortly after moving in, the tenants filed a restraining order against the owner and stopped paying rent.
