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.
