Default Not a problem - Just curious re WiFi

My ISP is Verizon FiOS. My downstairs neighbor's ISP is Spectrum. My /etc/hostname.iwn0
consists of 2 lines - first my connection, second her connection (she allowed me to connect to her network for a short time several months ago when I was having problems). My router sits on my desk less than 18 inches from my laptop. Her router is downstairs on top of a dresser in a back room.
Question - why, when given a choice does wifi always connect to her network instead of mine? Both are 5G, my dBm= -27 her dBm= -73.
