Jon DiRienzo

Thoughtful communication and marketing that generates buzz and anticipation.


What is it about you and your business that makes you a visionary in your field?
Our process is creative, as opposed to transactional. We dig deep to discover the essence of a property, build compelling story lines, and then handpick the perfect team for a project. Ultimately, our aim is to be impactful and extract the most value we can for our clients.

What is unique about your approach to serving your customers?
To me, the most crucial element of service is empathy. You can’t help your client achieve their goals if you don’t understand them, so you must be a great listener and be thoughtful in your communication.

What new services or products do you specialize in that address our current times?
We are experiencing a historic shift in our business driven by the crisis. People are looking more discerningly at how a property fits their needs both in good times, and bad. There is an emphasis being placed on health, safety and family and it is our job to understand how it correlates to the homes they live in.

What sets your business apart from others?
I think our style is authentic and we are not afraid to take risk in our presentation. In turn, our listings usually generate good buzz and anticipation. We never settle for the status quo.

What are you doing to stay connected with the local community?
A truly positive by-product of SIP has been the opportunity to get to know our neighbors better. I think communities are much stronger now and those support systems will be long lasting.

What are your hobbies or interests outside of your business?
I enjoy hiking, biking and sports. I have missed watching my kids play sports, but now I get to actually play sports with them which has been fun. Music has always been important to me, but never more than right now.

What do you want people to know about you?
I deeply value their trust and I will go to the mat fighting for them.
