“Before these days of cell phones, faxes, and the internet, a real estate agent had huge challenges in selling homes. A mere “For Sale” sign gave a potential home buyer only a phone number contact. Dallas, at the time, was suffering a terrible blow to its real estate industry. Previously low interest rates and inflated construction projects saturated the market sending thousands of home-sellers into foreclosure—a disaster for some, a boon for others, but steep competition for all. Advertising spots in local newspapers were expensive, agents in the field were missing calls back at the office, and houses stayed listed for months on end; buyers and sellers alike were frustrated by the conditions. As Tommi saw it, how to get information into the hands of the prospective clients quickly and efficiently posed the greatest challenge.

And so, in her garage, with hacksaw in hand, Tommi Crow made the first strikes against the white plastic PVC piping that was to become the prototype for the InfoTube®. Along with rubber plumbing strap, universal end-caps, and a few sheets of sticky mailbox lettering, Tommi wrapped, capped, and clipped together the apparatus, which was first known as TAKE ONE (spelled out in black, peel and stick letters).”
