New Forms 

Glide welcomes the DIA, PSD, VLQ and EHR to its Forms Library


All of the most time-consuming and complicated disclosure forms are now available on Glide, including the DIA, PSD, VLQ, EHR, TDS, SPQ, AVID, ESD and FLD. Upon creating your Disclosure Packet, simply select as many forms from Glide's library as needed from the dropdown menu.

Improved Client Experience

Navigating forms has never been easier! Clients can search for questions and preview answers inside of the PDF


Search bar.  Sellers can now use the search bar to navigate between questions and easily revise their answers on Glide. 

Seller Review Mode. Sellers can preview the form's PDF compared to what they have already completed while navigating through the question and answer experience on Glide by clicking "Preview" at any time. 

Improved Agent Experience

Share links to direct sellers to specific questions for revision, preview PDFs before syncing the transaction in zipForm® Plus, connect unlimited zipForm® Plus accounts and personalize notification settings 


Link to Questions & Preview PDFWhile reviewing your client's answers, you can direct them to specific questions for revisions by copying and sharing unique links to those questions. The links are found under each question. You also have two options for reviewing your client's answers, either within the Glide wizard or by selecting to "Preview PDF" to see the answers on the CAR form.

Connect multiple zipForm® Plus accounts. Simply select from the dropdown menu of previously added accounts or select to add a new account.

Personalize notification settings. Don't want to receive an update when your client begins their disclosure forms packet? How about when the client forgets to submit their final documents for review after answering the forms questions? No problem! Glide allows Agents and TCs to personalize notification settings to eliminate unnecessary notifications.

 

Streamlined AVID

Orange County REALTORS® is dedicated to providing members with valuable market data to utilize in the business. In order to provide a quick glance at the housing market, an OC Market Snapshot for both detached and attached homes will be posted online each month. Members can use these graphics for marketing materials and listing presentations. Be sure to also review the Monthly Housing Summary for a more comprehensive look at the County. For a detailed look at over 180 neighborhoods throughout Orange County, use OC FastStats.

In Memoriam: Joe Vargas
(1947-2018)

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of a very special man and member of the real estate community, Joe Vargas.

Joe passed away on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 10:30 AM. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Debra and family. Joe was an agent with Realty One Group for the last 4 years, but more than that he was a man who seemed to brighten the life of everyone who knew him. He proudly served his country in the U.S. military and was a Vietnam Vet. Joe will be greatly missed.

Services will be held at Riverside National Cemetery on Friday, October 26 at 9:45 am.
