As I sit here reading all of the truly wonderful stories about Jim Maloof and what an incredible man he was, I am truly touched, but there seems to be something missing, something left out of all of those accolades, something just as important as every accomplishment Jim ever achieved…the fact that he raised his first born son Michael, to be exactly like him.

I only had the good fortune of meeting Mr. Maloof 3 times before his passing, but I don't feel short changed, I feel very fortunate that I work beside his son Michael, absorbing in all that he teaches me on a daily basis.

I came here after being with a law firm for 19 years, unsure of how I would adapt. My first week here Michael was taking some time off from the office but made a point to come in every day to have coffee with me because he didn't want me to feel overwhelmed. How many people can say that? How many presidents and CEO's of companies care about the emotional wellbeing of their staff enough to make them feel special….not many I'm sure.

To know Jim is not to know Michael, Michael is not larger than life, not loud, not gregarious, nor does he sing. What is he? Michael is quiet, and kind and generous, he is a teacher, a mentor and every other single thing his father taught him to be, he is everything the Maloof name stands for.

I remember the first few weeks I was here he was teaching and quizzing me about the real estate business, we drifted off onto other subjects, subjects that I clearly wasn't educated on and he said to me “geeze, didn't those lawyers teach you anything in 19 years?” Every day is a new day of learning for me with one of the best teachers I could ask for.

Michael is the President of Jim Maloof Realtor, he has seen this company through low sales during the recession only to be recognized this year as one of only 17 of the top 500 Real Estate Companies in the United States to grow in 3 critical areas of business by Real Trends Magazine. He is a member of numerous boards and charities including but not limited to The Peoria Chamber of Commerce and St. Jude.

He carries on the traditions his father taught him....“catching people doing good things”, writing notes of encouragement to his agents on their commission stubs, acknowledging a complete stranger in the newspaper with a handwritten note, to most recently taking Starbucks coffee down to all the mechanics at a local car dealership “just because”.

You did good Jim, Michael is truly his father's son.

Don't worry Peoria, the Maloof Legacy Lives On in Michael.
