Businesss yesterday and today ...or.. YOUR way!

We live in a fast-paced, ever-connected world. Compared to 20 years ago, businesses all over the globe have been affected by the constant evolving world of social media, technology and other innovative ways of conducting business. While we have heard all of the negativity surrounding technology and social media, their effects in the business community have proved to be extremely helpful-- especially in Real Estate.

Toth and Team likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, social media and marketing. Not only does this help us to be the best in the business, but it helps you sell or find your perfect Lake Home quickly, efficiently and in your perfect price range.

However, if you want to do business "the old fashion way", we would LOVE to accommodate!

The following table shows how real estate was conducted as early as 20 years ago compared to 2016.

In the Past


Paper contracts- required big, bulky folders. Always the fear that they would get misplaced.

Paperless - easy to use fill out and sign, maintains quality, sharable electronically and can be stored indefinitely “in the cloud”

Images and Video

Video tours, picture tours, 3-D tours- these make touring a house remotely a lot easier and can be considered a “showing”. To view the live stream of Apple Valley Lake, please click here.

Physical signing of documents- you had to schedule a meeting every time a document needed signed,

Doc-u-Sign or other Internet signing platforms- easy and you don’t need to have a meeting every time your realtor needs you to sign something

Snail Mail letters- time, effort and costly

E-mails-sent and received at the click of a button

Scouring local newspapers- Old MLS Books, News stand Home Book, took a lot of time and effort and OUTDATED!

Online platform- you can narrow your search and find exactly what you want quickly. is the most up to date as it takes from the MLS. Zillow and others do not keep updated info and have incorrect home values. The best info is directly from an agents website - The experts suggest that you choose an agent that specializes in the area! One that lives in the area - We highly recommend staying away from the jack of all trades! Agents that will sell or list in any county but do not even know what is on the latest voting ballots or can tell you where the schools are. Toth and Team specialize in Apple Valley Lake ONLY! They live, breathe and play Apple Valley Lake.

Communication via telephone-

Texting, emails, video conference.

Fax Machines

E-mails- simple, easy and virtually instant

Physical showings- while these still prove the to be the best, there are alternatives.

Facetime showing- Toth and Team has shown houses for people via the Facetime App. In our market, homes are selling quickly! Sometimes its necessary to see a home within hours of coming on the market. Remote showings can help our buyers make the decision whether or not to make the trip to Apple Valley Lake.

The “new” way of doing business doesn’t necessarily equate to the “right” way; however, when searching for your perfect Lake Home, wouldn’t you want agents who do their very best with all the tools necessary to work with you and your style!?!
