Saturday, May 31, 2008


PARSIPPANY, N.J., – CENTURY 21 Real Estate LLC, franchisor of the world's largest residential real estate sales organization, recently launched a branded Channel on YouTube (, the leading online video community, that is dedicated to helping people showcase and search for real estate around the world. Aimed at sellers, buyers and enthusiasts, the Channel will provide the opportunity for customers and agents to create and submit user-generated content. In addition, to officially launch the branded channel on YouTube, the CENTURY 21 System held a national consumer-generated video contest.

“The CENTURY 21 System understands that in order to serve our clients and meet the demands of today’s market, we must lead the industry with the most current home buying and selling platforms,” said Robert Schwartz , vice president of national marketing for Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “During the next year we will continue to build on this momentum with additional Web-based innovations to help our agents and our clients navigate the world of real estate in a digital era.”

Instead of the traditional photographs, virtual tours and videos on today’s real estate sites, videos uploaded by agents and sellers on YouTube will have a personal touch that can help a prospective buyer better decide which homes may be right for their needs. A video voiceover can highlight areas of interest in the home, as well as showcase recent home upgrades or renovations to the potential buyers.

Locally, REALTORS at CENTURY 21 Adams & Barnes have picked up their video cameras and begun directing their own creations. For some time, they have been using video and the web to showcase their listings and the YouTube channel is an ideal location for their marketing solutions.

CENTURY 21 Adams & Barnes at 2008 Relay For Life / Monrovia

Once again, the CENTURY 21 Adams & Barnes team laced up their sneakers, braved the heat and camped out for Monrovia's Relay for Life event this April.

Joined by over 20 teams and hundreds of volunteers, expectators and walkers, the team helped raiser over 102K (still counting) over a month's long fundraising campaign and the two-day relay at Recreation Park in Monrovia.

The team's theme was "Rockstars Againts Cancer" and it included a booth that allowed the public to try their Guitar Hero talents on a Playstation 2 console that was projected on a movie screen after dusk. Coupled with a top-of-the-line sound system, the booth was a big hit with kids and walkers.

The night was topped off with a Luminaria ceremony that celebrated the life and survival of men, women and loved ones who have struggled against cancer. A path of light gave Relay For Life participants the opportunity to remember and strenghten their resolve to battle a disease that afflicts so many.

The CENTURY 21 Adams & Barnes team, lead in 2008 by Jacen Crehan - REALTOR, is again proud to join fellow Monrovians at this years Relay and we look forward to making a difference again in 2009.
