SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® received a First Place Award for its Presidential Video at the California REALTOR® Expo, hosted by the California Association of REALTORS® at the San Jose Convention Center Oct. 6th through Oct. 8th.
"Recognizing that consumers are turning to video to get information, we decided to ramp up our video efforts this year and make 2015 the year of video," explained SCCAOR President Craig Gorman. "We have produced some great videos this year that are being viewed by our members and potential members. Out of more than 150 Associations at C.A.R., 31 entered videos and we are honored that they selected ours for the first place award."
The video, titled "Dedicated to Your Success!," discusses many of the great benefits that SCCAOR provides to its members, including education classes, free tech support, in-house video production, counseling, arbitration and mediation, and networking opportunities through the events the Association holds each year. It encourages REALTORS® to join the Association. The video features not only Gorman, but President-Elect Trisha Motter and a cast of staff and SCCAOR members.
