Growing up in central California, Betsy Wolfe was so infatuated with real estate that she routinely collected the circulars that listed homes for sale, fanning them out on the living room floor and mooning over the possibilities.

“I’d say: ‘Mom! Dad! Look, this house has just been reduced by $20,000,’” said Ms. Wolfe, who took over the lead in the Broadway musical “Waitress”in mid-June. “And my father would say, ‘Betsy, we are not looking to buy a house.’”

It just goes to show how little Father knew, because here’s the thing: Betsy was looking. Through the years, the desire for property ownership continued to burn hot and bright. Finally, in March of 2016, a mere two days before she sang at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, Ms. Wolfe and her fiancé, Adam Krauthamer, a French horn player, closed on a one-bedroom co-op in Morningside Heights. They moved in last December.
