The Team

Salmon Real Estate is comprised of several real estate professionals who are ready to guide you through every step of the real estate process.

jonJon C. Salmon, Realtor® and President of Salmon Real Estate

Experience:

Jon Salmon’s reputation for integrity and exceptional expertise in the real estate market reaches far beyond Staten Island – and far back in time.

In 1979, Jon joined the firm his father, Egon, started nearly three and a half decades earlier. Soon after, the future president of Salmon Real estate proved to be an award-winning top producer in the categories of both residential and commercial real estate.

In his role as a seasoned real estate professional, Jon is often called upon by the news media to provide analysis of the marketplace, and has supplied expert testimony before the New York State Supreme Court.

His ability to effectively interpret and communicate the nuances of the real estate industry has led Jon to teach real estate courses at St. John’s University, lecturing at the College of Staten Island and conducting seminars, both locally and at national conventions.

As a businessman and philanthropist, the native Staten Islander’s real estate savvy is equaled in prowess by his leadership skills, which are repeatedly demonstrated through ongoing community involvement, and by the competency of his dynamic real estate team, which diligently represents the clients of Salmon Real Estate.

Philosophy:

Danielle has the organizational skills and determination necessary to successfully guide customers and clients through the complexities of their real estate transactions, while providing the highest level of customer service.

Danielle’s clients frequently express their faith in her abilities by referring her to friends and family, or returning years later wanting her to sell their home or help them purchase another home. One client even insisted that she list their off-Island property rather than use a local Realtor. This is likely due to the fact that she is 100% committed to providing the best service possible even if it means negotiating a deal in the middle of the night while out of town to attend a funeral (true story).
