spk_1: it's it's it's agree with by towards the water alex it's it's it's a dollar business of a much larger beds we least about eight hundred and fifty square feet and and cabinet strip center for being very little for it as long as you can get the right originators in that office week because it makes way for its size because you know the west coast of florida especially but particularly good to the bank and i just think of further expansion is is in order and and i have very good idea i also think it might be a great opportunity to expand into full service branches down along downs down the road into that area
spk_6: okay and it is it's primarily going to be originating want to for family years or other product that can be selfish yes

spk_1: okay so it's it's days their own service or something is a specific number you're looking for in terms of when you're starts put money to worker how much of starts a ladder out snuff no not right now based on the it's based on the need that we as alex and where the rates are going where where we think the trending is going
spk_6: at that point i guess higher would be the answer
spk_8: yeah
spk_1: okay and then despite a question for me i guess it a little that the by back what what are you can't think about for those for the sherry purchase for of in stocks down down to one ten a tangible book value
spk_12: you know is there are sensitive prices take it's more attractive to to use utilize that by that more capital levels of behind her earnings the on the dividend that didn't consider allocated towards the by backers you know what's his thought processor
