Gwendy started her career in real estate in 1978 at Cushman & Wakefield in San Francisco.

Gwendy played a pivotal role in the leasing and the development management of these projects, which included tenants such as Gucci, Hermes, Tiffany & Co., Christian Dior, Valentino, Sulka, and Etro, to name a few.
Subsequently, Gwendy formed her own company, Conner Commercial, to specialize in the complex land issues of the development process.
