Community Share Program

The community in which you live, is what makes a town thrive.  They come together to help those in need, provide for others, build structures, develop programs, keep the economy strong and more.  As a Realtor®, that works with people relocating to my community, and people that are planting roots in another, I decided to give back.  Helping people find a new home where they will make new memories is something special, and a major life changing experience.  

If you sell, or buy your next home with me, I will donate 5% of my commission to a non-profit organization in the county you sell or purchase in.  I will also make the donation in your name!  There is absolutely no hidden cost to you, no raised fee, and my work ethic is still driven to exceed your expectations.

I wanted to start this program because I too am part of an amazing community of people, and if I can help a cause, that makes a difference in someones life, then that has made an impact in mine.

Please review the disclaimer for details.

Donations are made at the close of escrow, after broker fees are paid. All donations are made at the clients’ discretion to a local registered 501 (c)3 charity in the county where services are rendered, and in no way imply or constitute a relationship between April Baker and Van Zandt Properties. The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) requires all donations to be voluntary and that no finders or referral fee will be paid to any organization. These donations are recorded in your honor but not for your personal deduction. If a client is working either through a referral from another brokerage, a relocation company, or other referral service, then the donation will not occur as commission is already substantially reduced. If a client has asked for a limited service listing or reduction in commission in order to negotiate terms, then the donation will not occur as a reduction in commission has already taken place. There are no donations on lease contracts. The name of the charity and the amount of donation is listed in the buyer representation agreement or the listing agreement between Van Zandt Properties and you. Donation delivery process may vary based on the charity's desired donation process.

Coming Soon, local charities to consider for donation…

Bastrop C.A.T.S.

Bastrop Cats Anonymous TNR Society (Bastrop CATS) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of community cats in Bastrop, Texas . We are a small “boots on the ground,” 100% volunteer- based organization. We are not an animal shelter and do not have a facility to take in owner-surrendered cats. We focus our efforts on making the largest impact in our community through  promoting and facilitating a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Sterilizing community cats improves the lives of these community cats by preventing breeding. We provide resources to the community to humanely and effectively manage community cat populations.
