Bill and Barbara Dolmovic

Bill & Barbara have been permanent residents of the Ponderosa since 1979. Barbara got her real estate license in 1986 and started Peppermint Realty, graduating with a real estate GRI degree in 1990. Barbara along with Bill opened up Aspen Real Estate in Ponderosa at their 56800 Aspen Drive office. In 2001 Bill got his Real Estate brokers license, also joining the Tulare County Board of Realtors.

Before moving to Ponderosa, Bill lived in Leona Valley Ca, employed as a Senior Research Engineer with Lockheed Aircraft in Palmdale Ca, a job he enjoyed since he graduated with a BSME degree from Michigan Technological University in Houghton Michigan.

 All in all, Bill and Barbara’s entrepreneurial efforts employ over 8 people in our mountain communities throughout the year.

Both Bill and Barbara are former pilots of small aircraft and enjoyed ballooning, glider and fixed wing aircraft flying as hobbies while living in Leona Valley. Bill also was active in the equestrian scene living on his ranch in Leona valley raising Appaloosa horses. Barbara lived in Malibu Ca, getting her Psychiatric Technician license from UCLA and LA Trade Tech. Barbara was an American Airlines Hollywood & Vine ticket office manager and a certified Hatha Yoga teacher. In June of 1979 Bill and Barbara got married. In August they bought a mountain getaway cabin in Ponderosa and in November they moved to Ponderosa permanently. Bill continued working at Lockheed aircraft, finishing the testing programs of the B-1 bomber and the Space shuttle orbiter. After commuting for two years, Bill opted to leave Lockheed and his secure corporate job to start a design and construction company in Ponderosa known as “High Sierra Builders”. Bill has designed and built over 50 new homes and 100's of residential remodels in our mountain area since moving to Ponderosa. In 1983 Bill developed a snow removal business known as” High Sierra Snow Removal”. Today High Sierra Snow Removal contracts with the community service district and Tulare County to clear approx.10 miles of community and public roads during the winter season along with clearing over 90 private driveways. With snowfalls nearing 30 ft per year, this is a major 6-month effort.

Bill is a past President of the Upper Tule Association, Ponderosa Property Association and the Ponderosa Community Service district. He also is an active member of the Ponderosa Fire brigade, been an EMT, member of the Elks Lodge, Eagles Lodge, a life member of the Tulare County Historical Society and a founding member of the Camp Nelson Conservancy and Camp Nelson Ambulance Association. He has chaired many committees in these organizations. The most noteworthy effort was putting together “Music in the Meadow” bringing top recording song writers to our community to perform in the beautiful setting of the Camp Nelson Conservancy meadow.

Barbara is presently the  committee chairperson of the membership and sunshine committee’s with the Ponderosa Property Owners Association. Her real passion other than sharing her knowledge of living in the High Sierras is cooking. Bill claims she has cooked a unique recipe almost every evening since they got married 35 years ago.
