Get to know Bonnie Vaughan
Bonnie Vaughan is a dedicated professional offering aggressive representation for both buyers and sellers. Her Real Estate career was first launched in 1985. Having experience in Federal Transportation Law she founded a successful transportation consulting company. An offer to enter the corporate world of a Fortune 500 company as a Safety Director was too tempting to turn down.
In 2005 Bonnie returned to Real Estate to launch a partnership with her sister Jayne Vaughan in Northeastern Pa. Since then "The Sisters" have helped buyers realize their dream of home ownership, and assisted sellers in overcoming difficult marketing conditions.
Bonnie and Jayne are both very hands on with their clients. They believe communication is not just about talking to a client, but rather listening to the client. Knowing their dreams and desires help Bonnie and Jayne match them up with just the right properties. Educating a buyer is a critical step to a harmonious buying experience. Buyers need to understand each step of the process before it happens. That preparation reduces some of the stress and anxiety a buyer feels especially a first time home buyer.
Being totally honest with sellers is paramount to helping them reach their goals. Bonnie and Jayne help sellers prepare their homes for marketing and guide them towards the realistic price that will move them to the next stage of their lives.

Testimonials for Bonnie Vaughan
My process into home ownership began when I was looking for a property in the North Pocono area which met a specific list of criteria - Decent sized garage, acreage, Modern Kitchen, and within a certain price range. The Sisters were very quick to provide us with several properties which did indeed meet this criteria. After looking at a few properties in person - we found one online that looked promising. The sisters were able to set up a viewing for the property ahead of the date it was to be shown. This was refreshing, as I had reached out to several other realtor's in the previous year...most of them gave off the impression that we were bothering them - or had nothing to show us.
Upon seeing the house for the first time, it was clear that this was the house I needed. Being a new home-owner; I had a lot of questions. The Sisters helped immensely throughout the entire process, paperwork, check list of things to do, etc. Throughout the process, Bonnie and Jayne constantly checked in with all parties to make sure everything was still a go for a December 20th closing - which is the date we set when we made our offer. The closing did occur on December 20th, and without The Sisters relentlessness in coordinating all parties; I doubt it would have happened.
Thanks to Bonnie and Jayne's negotiation, and knowledge of the local market - I was able to negotiate greatly - and get a significant savings on my home. If I were buying another home (no plans on doing so any time soon!), my first call would be to The Sisters to help in the process!
I called Bonnie after first going with another realtor who was apparently part time. First she showed me what I needed to do to get out of the contract that I had unknowingly signed. After that ordeal was over we got to look at homes. I went from seeing 2-3 a month with the other guy to 2-3 a day sometimes with Bonnie. I know I can be a pain with these types of things but Bonnie was right on the ball with all my questions/ requests. Fast forward a month or so and we finally find one that I like and I'm ready to make an offer. This particular home is a Fannie Mae owned forclosure in Clark's summit. I could tell she was hesitant on going with this property for that very reason but we went ahead anyways with the offer and it was accepted. We go ahead and do our inspections and find a few issues. She then somehow managed to get some repairs taken care of by the massive forclosure machine that FM is. This saved me tons of time and money. Moving ahead about 5 months... Yes 5 months! After multiple hold ups and extensions (all issues on the sellers side btw) we finally close and I couldn't be happier with the service she provided. I highly recommend her to anyone and especially a first time home buyer like myself.Thanks so much Bonnie!!! Next one won't be a forclosure I promise ;)
As an investor, I've had relationships with several realtors. By far, Jayne and Bonnie provided the best service. They regularly searched the listings trying to find properties that met my criteria and emailed them to me. In other words, they were pro-active in helping. Plus they would contact me to check if I needed anything from them. You can also view all MLS listings on their website (updated every 15 minutes). I'm still in the process of looking for a multi-unit property and am glad that I found Jayne and Bonnie to help me through the process.
Bonnie and Jayne worked with us from day one of our home search, they worked hand in hand with us on our journey to find our first home. The Sisters were our support system, 100%, and once the herd was thinned we found our prefect home. From the beginning they worked hard and diligently, explaining the ins and outs of being a first time home buyer. I highly recommend Bonnie and Jayne if your looking for that personal touch when looking for your home.
