I'm writing to let you know about an entirely new way to support Capital Public Radio.

Our new fundraising partner, My Broker Donates, gives you the power to make a big donation at zero cost when you buy or sell a home.

My Broker Donates connects our supporters with the best-in-market real estate agents and brokers who donate 15% of their fee to Capital Public Radio. You choose the agent you like best.

The best part? It costs you—and Capital Public Radio—nothing.

Donations come from the caring, qualified brokers you work with.

This innovative service can generate significant contributions towards our mission of providing publicly funded news, music and public affairs radio programming for California's Central Valley and Sierra Nevada regions.

Please think about who you know that is considering buying or selling real estate. Then please contact My Broker Donates.

With much gratitude for your support,
Rick Eytcheson
President & General Manager
Capital Public Radio

We can find a better agent than you can. Here’s why you should care.

  • Sellers who use a top agent consistently get more money for their home – as much as 20% more*.
  • Buyers have the inside track – getting the home they want.
  • Our objective, data-driven service ensures you get the best agent.
  • Sellers get a tax deduction

Real estate agent performance is a well guarded industry secret. Historically, people found their agent by word of mouth or by selecting one they already knew. And in the age of transparency, that´s not how people choose their agent anymore.

Today, consumers demand to be empowered, and accurate data is key. As seasoned real estate professionals, we know agents’ true sales history and their reputation among their peers and service providers. We use this insider information to get you just the right agent, curated to custom fit your needs.

Buyers and sellers demand more and My Broker Donates delivers.

When your transaction closes, the non–profit you love gets a big donation – at zero cost – and you get a tax deduction! Make the smart choice; use MBD now to match you with your perfect agent.

* As confirmed in a recent industry study.

  • I turned to My Broker Donates after hearing about them on NPR and spending some time on my own trying to find a broker. The usual web searches weren’t very helpful, since there are hundreds of brokers in my area. I called My Broker Donates and Jack got back to me right away. After spending some time with me to find out what my needs were, he did some research and provided me with a couple of brokers to check out. They were both high quality brokers and after I interviewed them, I picked Glenda. She was the perfect broker to meet my needs and without My Broker Donates help and efforts to weed through the hundreds of choices, I would not have found her. Jack also followed up with me to make sure I got the broker I needed and was willing to research additional choices, if necessary. Besides the great service from My Broker Donates, I was happy that my favorite public radio station, Capital Public Radio,will also get a nice donation. Thanks for all of your help, Jack!

  • As a long-time listener to Capital Public Radio, I heard frequently about My Broker Donates and always thought it a great idea. When it came time to sell my home near Oroville, I contacted MBD, who connected me to a local broker, Dave Black.Dave is a true professional — very skilled, always available, and easy to talk to. He developed a marketing plan and put it into play. Within two weeks I had three offers! Dave consulted with me at every step, as we negotiated our way to a sale.I am happy with the final sales price and the quality of the professional that My Broker Donates introduced me to. I would certainly recommend their service to anyone who wants the best agent when buying or selling. And I’m pleased that using the services of MBD generated a donation to my favorite non-profit organization.

  • I wanted to take a moment to thank you for referring Wayne to me to assist with his new home search. Wayne is a first time buyer and although new to the process, he was a delight. I have to tell you that referrals can sometimes be daunting as we have no knowledge of the person, their experience, how they handle challenges, etc. I can’t say we had the easiest transaction with this bank owned seller, but I can tell you that I appreciated every moment I worked with Wayne. It was nice to have new client that was such a great partner in this adventure. I am thrilled to say Wayne has found his new home and I am so thankful for your referral. Keep ’em coming!

  • I wanted to thank you for the My Broker Donates support. You picked a great broker for me in Marsha Bateson. Everything, even the normal bumps and curves, went smoothly. She did her homework, priced it right, gave great advice and support and we signed closing papers in less than two months. It was a pleasure working with her, I have never had such a smooth sale.And NPR gets some assistance too! A win-win for everyone. Thanks again

  • I had been listening to NPR, and heard the advertisements for My Broker Donates. I decided it was time to buy my first home so I gave them a call. Jack connected me with Pam Nelson and she was fantastic. Pam walked me through the process and answered every question. She was incredibly responsive and even emailed me back during the Super Bowl! By being so knowledgeable and personable, Pam made the entire experience smooth. Plus, My Broker Donates made a generous donation to NPR! Thank you for referring me to such a great agent.
