In affiliation with Perdue Brandon, Texas Communities Group, LLC (TCG) provides trust property management and marketing services, abandoned property procedures and code enforcement support. TCG is an add-on service for our communities throughout Texas to assist in dealing with abandoned, dilapidated and problem properties.

With the use of an online bid system and a marketing and management strategy, TCG has sold over 2,000 properties that have contributed more than $3 million in revenue for clients. TCG ensures the best possible buyers and gets properties back on the tax roll. Perdue Brandon has successfully used creative interlocal agreements to fund this added service.

With the cooperation of Perdue Brandon, TCG also has found great success in targeting abandoned and dormant, low-value properties for seizure. TCG staff works with communities in identifying and procuring the necessary information for properties that qualify, according to the Texas Property Tax Code. Perdue Brandon reviews the information and executes the tax warrants.

TCG works with local code enforcement departments by providing support or consultation, as well as having three licensed and registered code enforcement officers on staff. Additionally, TCG developed a smart-phone application to report "problem" properties simply and quickly. TCG looks for the most efficient, cost-effective, long-term resolution for problem or eye-sore properties.

Current TCG clients with trust properties for resale are listed on Perdue Brandon's Trust Property Resale webpage.
