Salmon Real Estate and Turvey Dellomo combine operations

Staten Island, NY - 2013-11-26

A recent merger between two venerable real estate names - Salmon Real Estate and Turvey Dellomo - has resulted in a combined business-history of more than 140 years.

"It's an arranged marriage, and it's a good one," said Realtor Jon Salmon, president of Salmon Real Estate, on the merging of his Castleton Corners-based enterprise and its sibling company, Equity Valuation Associates, with nearby Turvey Dellomo Associates, Realtors and Appraisers.

Patricia Turvey Dellomo, president of the namesake company formerly located at 1942 Victory Blvd., said her business arrangement with the Salmon family will ensure the future of her firm when she decides to retire fully.

"I feel the merger is in the best interest of our clients," Dellomo said. "Our businesses are very much alike; each is a family business with the highest regard for quality customer service."

The merger has been seamless, said Henry Arlin Salmon, president and CEO of Equity Valuation Associates, a full-service real estate appraisal and consulting company.

"Turvey Dellomo has relocated its operations to our headquarters at 1855 Victory Blvd., on Staten Island," he said. "It now is running in tandem with Salmon Real Estate and Equity Valuation Associates under the same roof."

The Turvey Dellomo name, Salmon said, "will continue to exist, along with its well-earned reputation for top-notch customer service and the firm's contact information, including its phone number (718-447-1610)."

Turvey Dellomo joined her family's business in 1959, 30 years after it was launched by her father, Samuel Turvey. The enterprise has since served the Staten Island community with a specialized expertise in the selling and appraising of homes, in similar fashion to the Salmon family business. Dellomo is a member of the Appraisal Institute and holds the additional designation of "senior residential real estate appraiser."

"Turvey Dellomo is the only family-owned real estate agency on Staten Island that has been around longer than our own," Jon Salmon said. "It's always been a privilege to have Pat as both a friend and colleague, and my brother and I are honored to have her firm meld with ours.

Salmon Real Estate was established by former NYC tax commissioner Egon Salmon, Jon and Henry's father, during a real estate career that began in 1956. The agency is a member of the Staten Island Board of Realtors (SIBOR), the New York State Association of Realtors (NYSAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR). In addition to providing its services locally, Salmon Real Estate assists buyers and sellers of properties in the global marketplace through its association with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.

Today, with Jon Salmon at the helm, Salmon Real Estate continues to be a highly respected full-service agency with extraordinary insight of the local marketplace, and community involvement benefiting all neighborhoods of Staten Island.

President and CEO Henry Arlin Salmon heads Equity Valuation Associates, a full-service real estate appraisal and consulting company with a reputation reflecting the highest industry standards. The firm provides in-depth analysis of real estate transactions and trends, with expertise in residential, commercial and industrial properties, as well as vacant land.
