GoodAgent

At KALW, we are proud to be listener-supported, and we are always looking for new ways to invite listeners to help keep Local Public Radio strong.

As part of that ongoing effort, we have entered a partnership with GoodAgent, an innovative service that uses a research-driven approach to match homebuyers and sellers with the most effective agents in our area - and then provides a part of its referral fees for KALW. 

When you venture into the real estate market, nothing is more critical than the agent you choose.   GoodAgent harnesses proprietary data on real estate transactions to identify one or more agents most likely to succeed on your behalf.  They make an introduction, and when a transaction is successfully concluded, GoodAgent ensures that a generous portion of their referral fee is donated to KALW, in your name if you wish, at no cost to you. 

Already have an agent in mind?  GoodAgent can provide a comparison before you make your final decision, without any obligation on your part.

For more than 75 years, KALW has been part of the cultural and intellectual fabric that makes the Bay Area a great place to live.  Our partnership with GoodAgent 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.

I was trustee of my parents’ estate and needed to sell our family home in Belmont. When I heard about GoodAgent on KALW I thought, why not check it out?

The people at GoodAgent really listened, and introduced me to Bob, an experienced local broker. The house needed quite a bit of work, and I also managed the clean out (a huge job!) that took months to accomplish. Bob advised me on what repairs were most essential, and even recommended experienced workers. He was very patient over the fifteen months it took to finish the job, and the fact that he was also an attorney he understood it being sold through a trust and offered as an 'as is' sale, which made the marketing go smoother. The house sold for over asking price with thirty-seven offers.

As a longtime listener, I feel my obligation to give back to community radio. I would highly recommend GoodAgent to get the best broker and make a big donation to my favorite radio station, KALW.
