We’re always excited to see real estate innovations that empower buyers and sellers, and TOOR is leading the charge in the lockbox space. On the November 11th episode of Shark Tank, TOOR introduced the world to the first ever smart lockbox, designed to simplify the showing process. Read on for more information about TOOR, their technology and how the company hopes to have a positive impact on the real estate industry.
Meet Junior Desinor – CEO of TOOR
Junior has been actively involved in the real estate space for over fifteen years, and in that time, he’s seen the needs of the industry shift and change. His goal is to make it easier for buyers, sellers, rental hosts and real estate professionals to manage showings and property access.
By designing a lockbox that allows anyone to have the freedom to schedule showings with or without an agent present, Junior’s product is revolutionizing the way buyers tour homes. We connected with the TOOR team to ask a few questions about what the company aims to achieve. Here’s what they had to say:
- What inspired Junior to come up with TOOR?
With a multi-faceted career in real estate stemming over fifteen years, Junior has had extensive experience as an agent, broker, investor, and developer. These culminating experiences shaped him to become a top producing broker and a nationally recognized real estate expert. With a desire to offer his clients better service, the TOOR concept was born.
Junior quickly formed a talented team of designers, engineers, developers, and attorneys – all dedicated to making TOOR one of the most anticipated products of the year. What started as a 30 day crowdfunding campaign that raised over $100k quickly blossomed into recognition from top brokerage firms around the country and an appearance on Shark Tank. With early success and a strong leadership team in place, TOOR is positioned to sell millions of lockboxes and to change the way people tour and access properties forever.
- What are the biggest challenges in creating a technology tool in the real estate space?
The first is creating a “smart” product that is durable, strong and made with an obsessively high standard on quality and reliability. Another challenge is gaining the trust of realtors, buyers, sellers, and rental hosts everywhere, and teaching the masses that there is a better way to schedule showings and access properties.
- I know you were recently featured on Shark Tank and landed a deal with Barbara Corcoran and Kevin O’ Leary. Congratulations! With your new strategic partners on board, what’s next for TOOR?
First, we’ll be focusing on maximizing efficiency when it comes to manufacturing. Next, we’ll increase staff and third, we’ll be focusing on marketing, marketing, marketing! Our goal is to let everyone on the planet know TOOR is out there and it is the BEST!

Unlike a typical clunky lockbox, TOOR has an aesthetically pleasing design and it comes in a variety of colors. But it’s not just pretty, it’s also exceptionally functional! Watch the video below to learn how TOOR makes security a central focus and makes it easy for buyers, sellers and real estate professionals to simplify the process of scheduling and managing showings. The added security features make it an ideal lockbox for sellers who list with Home Bay.

Much like the rideshare industry and cable TV, real estate is all but begging for growth and change that empowers and favors consumers. In the years to come, we anticipate that more and more innovators like Home Bay and TOOR will use technology to overhaul and streamline real estate processes that are long overdue for an update.
