Orange County REALTORS® Members Free Access to Glide’s New Online System for Completing the TDS, SPQ, AVID and other Disclosure Forms Securely Online
Glide, a provider of real estate software solutions that empower agents with easy-to-use, secure, and convenient new ways to complete real estate transactions online, today announced a partnership with the Orange County REALTORS® that immediately enables Orange County REALTORS® members to use the company’s popular Glide Forms application. Glide Forms is distributed through a partnership with zipLogix™ and is embedded within the zipForm® Plus transaction management system. Beginning today, agents who are Orange County REALTORS® members can access Glide Forms free of charge via zipForm® Plus.
When a real estate agent’s client sells their home, the owner is required to accurately complete and submit a number of deal-critical disclosure forms. As agents know, this means that sellers are presented with forms containing complex legal language that often proves confusing and challenging to complete. As a result, these documents are commonly submitted with incomplete or inaccurate information, causing frustration and needless delays in the transaction process.
Glide Forms addresses these legacy issues through its TurboTax-style wizard that home sellers can use to accurately, quickly, and painlessly complete required paperwork – such as the Transfer Disclosure Statement and other California disclosure forms – through an intuitive all-digital interface. The wizard asks home sellers questions about their properties in plain language, making it clear how to disclose important details through user-friendly, conversational interactions. In addition to eliminating the frustration of often-confusing forms and delays due to missed questions, unreadable handwriting, and other common issues, Glide Forms allows agents to track their clients’ progress and digitally receive the finished forms as soon as they are completed. The purpose-built solution is also optimized for mobile use.
“I tried Glide Forms and it was so easy!” said Rita Tayenaka, REALTOR® at Coast to Canyon Real Estate. “I notified my client that she would be getting an email and to complete the forms when she had time. She had previously filled out the paper form but mistakenly answered some questions incorrectly and her writing was hard to read. With Glide Forms the process was much smoother for both her and me.”
“In our digital age, there shouldn’t be any reason for agents and home sellers to be slowed down by the difficulties of complex and cumbersome forms,” said Sebastian Tonkin, CEO, Glide. “We’re proud of our partnership with Orange County REALTORS® and look forward to its members seeing what Glide Forms has to offer them and their clients.”
About Glide Glide provides software solutions that helps real estate agents simplify their transaction process, reduce risk, and close more deals with less effort. The company’s first release, Glide Forms, is integrated into zipForm® Plus and allows California home sellers to complete required disclosure forms electronically for the first time ever.
