This Saturday, May 2nd is Free Comic Book Day. I had to opportunity to talk with Glynnes Pruett of the Comic Book Hideout in Downtown Fullerton about her shop and the events for the day. The Hideout has been voted the Best Comic Book Store in Orange County by OC Weekly and the OC Register. After taking a tour of the shop I can see why it’s so popular. Check out our conversation below.

The Comic Book Hideout will be open on Free Comic Book Day from 9am-8pm. Stop on by this Saturday for your free comic book. This is another reason why we love this community.

Videolicious is a great marketing tool for Real Estate Agents

Recently, a group of our professional REALTORS® attended a webinar by Alan Haburchak of Videolicious. Videolicious is an app you can use to create on the spot videos. It’s a great marketing tool for real estate agents to use to create a Listing Video, a “Come Check out my Open House” video or even a Client Testimonial video. It’s all done on your iPhone or iPad. Within about 15 minutes you can create the video and send it out to your social media sites, email to clients or upload to YouTube.

I know most of us don’t like how we look in photos let alone in videos. It took me a bit to get over how I looked on screen. But then I realized…that’s how I look. It was a blow to my ego but I got over it. If you can’t get over it and still don’t want to be on screen you can do a voice over of video clips and photos to create a marketing video.

I put together this short Videolicious video to show our agents just how easy it is and to motivate them to give it a try.

Our CENTURY 21 Discovery agents have access to an upgraded version of the app because of a partnership with Century 21 and Videolicious. Right now it’s only available on IOS products but there are plans for an Android version soon. Once you give it a try you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to use!

Community News – St. Jude Northwest Tower Completion

By Stephanie Goedl

November 7, 2014

I’m excited for my first post on the CENTURY 21 Discovery Blog to be about something that is near and dear to my heart. Our office is located in Fullerton which is in the hub of North Orange County, California. Across the street from our office is St. Jude Medical Center. This medical facility is a cornerstone of the community and provides high quality medical care as well as jobs to the area.

St. Jude is near and dear to my heart because it’s where I was born, I volunteered there in high school, I am currently a member of the St. Jude Hospital Guild and also serve on the Patient Advisory Council. As REALTORS® we are educated in the communities we serve by staying up to date on the neighborhood schools, parks, shopping and of course the local medical facilities.

A little over a year ago I had the opportunity to interview Lee Penrose, CEO of St. Jude Medical Center, as part of our CENTURY 21 Discovery Community Conversations video series. That video was about the construction that was going on of the Northwest Tower at the center.

Tomorrow, November 8th, the four-story tower will be open to the public for tours from 11-2. The new building will house state of the art surgical suites along with a new pharmacy, radiology, a “healing garden” and my favorite, a new cafeteria!

It’s been great to have a front row seat from our office watching the Northwest Tower being built. This facility will be an amazing addition to our community. I hope you can take advantage of this opportunity to take behind-the-scenes tour and interactive demonstrations before its open for business. Having this first class facility in our own backyard is benefit to all who live and work in North Orange County.
