At KALW, we are proud to be listener-supported, and we are always looking for new ways to collaborate with the community to create great, non-commercial radio.

That's why we've partnered with My Broker Donates, an innovative service that matches homebuyers and sellers with the most effective agents in their area - and then donates part of their referral fee to non-profits like KALW.

For more than 70 years, KALW has been part of the cultural and intellectual fabric that makes the Bay Area a great place to live. My Broker Donates makes it possible for some of that value to return to the station, so we can fulfill our mission to amplify the creativity and idealism of the Bay Area.

If you are buying or selling a home, I encourage you to contact My Broker Donates, connect with a great agent, and contribute to the future of Local Public Radio.

Sincerely, Matt Martin
General Manager

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.
