New Brokerage Grows Community Roots by Planting Trees

“Every time we sell a property or hire a new agent we will plant 10 trees.”Steve Schappert

“Sellers Trust Real Estate is a social business enterprise, we earn profit so we can give back”, says Sellers Trust founder, Steve Schappert. Sellers Trust Real Estate of Litchfield County just opened for business at 147 Elm Street in Thomaston, CT. Kathy Logan of Thomaston is the designated broker.  The location will also serve as world headquarters.  The first 10 trees have been ordered and will be planted in the nursery at our office until they become established.

Birch TreesSellers Trust is teaming up with the Arbor Day Foundation. Trees make a world of difference and Sellers Trust is embracing the opportunity to make a difference for them.  “Our clients and staff can decide whether they want to plant trees locally, repopulate the rain forest or add to a national forest. Together, we can green up our communities,  and make an impact on our planet”, said Schappert.

Our Communities:  People need a place to call home and a community is an extension of that feeling. Planting trees with my staff and clients  provides a great bonding experience and adds a sense of permanence and pride in our accomplishments.

Our forests: They provide wildlife habitat, natural beauty and recreational opportunities. They filter our air and our water. They are vital to life as we know it. And they need our help. Critical efforts to revitalize forests across the country—and around the globe—are underway to ensure that they live on for future generations, and Sellers trust is proud to be part of the solution.

Tropical rain forests cover just 2% of the earth’s surface, and yet they provide habitat and food for nearly half of all known living species. They convert carbon dioxide to oxygen, provide us with new medicines, and protect many of the undiscovered wonders of our planet. Rain forests are a beautiful, vital part of life. And they need our help.

Rain Forest Rescue® is making important strides by supporting Sellers Trust and communities in their efforts to protect, sustain and restore tropical rain forests.

Sellers Trust Real Estate is an Exclusive Seller Broker. Agents and brokers make a commitment to their clients to provide undivided loyalty and never use dual agency disclosure forms. Schappert said, ” I feel that once you make a promise to do the very best for a client you should keep that promise. The common practice of signing an exclusive right to represent and then signing a dual agency disclosure that allows the agent get paid by both parties in a transaction without representing either just doesn’t sit well with me.”

Sellers Trust improves, stages and lists property for sale to maximize seller profits. Trees add value to your home, regulate the temperature of your neighborhood, and provide food for wildlife.
