One of the newest names in real estate in Pasco County is the Toolbox Sisters — a unique moniker that captures the knowledge shared by two sisters who maximize new technology to assist their clients.
Amanda and Allison Vaughn wanted a memorable name for their company, and one that extolled the importance of technology when selling or buying a home.
“As former teachers, Allison and I understand the importance of knowing how to use technology effectively, and the need to embrace innovation that makes research even more accessible,” said Amanda.
“Teaching also taught us to be good listeners,” Allison adds. “People tell us of their frustrations with other Realtors who are insistent on showing them homes outside their budget, or in areas where they don’t want to live. We always listen to our clients, and by incorporating the latest in technology, match their needs and desires with the best possible options for their family.”
The sisters’ interest in real estate began in 2011, when they moved from Independence, Missouri, to Wesley Chapel for teaching jobs. Learning much from their personal relocation experience, they began to invest in real estate by buying and flipping houses, doing most of the renovation work themselves.
Amanda and Allison had so much fun investing in real estate, they decided to study for their Realtor licenses and sell real estate full time. Being younger than many full-time Realtors, the Toolbox Sisters have a long-term approach to their business.
“It’s never about the number of homes we sell, but rather the quality of service we provide our customers,” said Amanda.
“We build relationships with our clients by educating and guiding them as trusted advisers. We use tools that most clients are unfamiliar with — something they greatly appreciate.”
New home representation is an area that the Toolbox Sisters specializes in.
“Most people believe they’ll get a better price if they buy direct from the builder because there’s no real estate commission to pay. But, that simply is not true,” said Amanda. “Builders always include commission in their pricing, and they don’t give the commission back as a discount if the customer buys direct.”
The Toolbox Sisters also helps buyers look for resale homes, and even “For Sale by Owner” homes. For sellers, they use technology to get the most money for their property that the market will allow.
