Jim Maloof/REALTOR and Crowne Realty Help to Sell $32k in St Jude Dream Home Tickets in 24 Hours

In just a couple of days from the moment the St. Jude Fundraising Office asked Michael Maloof for his Company’s help, agents from Jim Maloof /REALTOR and Crowne Realty had mobilized and were ready for the challenge…and they did it for the Kids of St. Jude – continuing a long legacy of care, started by their founder, Jim Maloof.

You see, ticket sales for one of the area’s largest annual fundraising events for St Jude, The Dream Home Giveaway were alarmingly slow due to setbacks resulting from the Covid-19 crisis. Not sure of how to salvage the event – without the ability to gather physically for a true telethon – and with restrictions placed on almost all of their fundraising efforts – St. Jude reached out to a strong ally: Jim Maloof/REALTOR and Crowne Realty. They knew that these two companies were passionate about their support for St. Jude and knew that they could be counted on to step up to meet the challenge. So, the team quickly put together a plan and, on short notice, started making phone calls to their spheres of influence. What happened was nothing short of amazing…

While still balancing their own workloads, already stressed by Corona Virus limitations and protocol, agents reached out to clients, friends, family members, local leaders and fellow Realtors and, in less than 24 hours, managed to sell $32,000 in Dream Home Giveaway tickets. Within 48 hours, all of the tickets for the Giveaway were sold out.

Many agents from both companies participated. In particular, the efforts of Lorrie Palladini, who generously accounted for 55 of the 320 total tickets sold and Suzanne Miller, the top ticket-seller with 74 tickets and winner of an iPad donated by Adam Perkins courtesy of Home Warranty Inc. captured the spirit of Jim Maloof’s love for this charity – and the mission he passed onto his son, his family – and most who came in contact with him – to eradicate these awful diseases that steal our children in the dawn of their lives.

Jim Maloof/REALTOR and Crowne Realty wish to thank everyone involved: those who sold tickets, those who purchased tickets, the amazing Staff at the St Jude Fundraising Office, the local vendors who donated the prizes and everyone who supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital throughout the year.

Maloof Reaches Into Bloomington-Normal Housing Market With Crowne Merger

The leaders of a newly combined real estate company are bullish on the housing markets in Bloomington-Normal and Peoria, despite slowing sales and a dip in prices in 2019.

There were 2,408 home sales in McLean County in 2019, down 6.2% from 2018, according to Illinois Realtors. The average price of a home fell 3.6% to $159,000.

Low inventory continues to be a drag on the Bloomington-Normal market, especially in the $150,000 to $275,000 price range, said Tammy Heard, executive vice president at Peoria-based Jim Maloof/Realtor, which recently merged with Heard’s Bloomington-based Crowne Realty. There’s also been less corporate relocation, she said.
