On the heels of the grand opening for the St. Jude Dream Home, Realtor Jeremy Callahan this week announced via video that he will donate $500 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for each new family he helps buy or sell real estate between now and Aug. 31.

“My goal is to donate at least $10,000 to St. Jude, and all that would take is 20 new families jumping on board,” said Callahan. “We sold 816 homes last month in our association, so I believe 20 homes should be a snap, and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that happens. 

“I also challenge fellow Realtors in our area to join me so our impact grows.”

In the video, Callahan says families don’t have to close on the purchase or sale to qualify, but only need to start the initial consultation and paperwork to get things started. Proceeds will be donated once the family does close on their home, even if that takes place after the Aug. 31 deadline. 

Callahan is a Realtor with Signature Brokers, a major sponsor of this year’s St. Jude Dream Home in Prairie Pass in Apison, Tenn. Broker and owner Gina Sakich said, “Jeremy is always giving of his time and energy with his clients, his colleagues, and the organizations he cares about,” said Sakich. “He has taken our company’s sponsorship to new levels, and we’re thrilled to have him with us.

Callahan is no stranger to unconventional means of giving back. Soon after moving back to the Chattanooga area early last year, the top-producing Realtor fundraised nearly $25,000 for Chattanooga’s elderly by participating in Dancing with the Chattanooga Stars.
