RICHARD A. (RIK) JONNA
RIK JONNA brings to Douglas Elliman RE, not only a genuine passion for helping clients buy and sell luxury property but, an impressive and diverse background with over 30 years of experience in Real Estate, Construction and Interior Design. In addition to general real estate, in early 2017, Rik joined the Development Sales Team at DE and assumed a sales executive position at GALLERIA LOFTS – a new 48 luxury townhome development located directly in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. This assignment has been successfully completed. Currently, Rik is representing buyers and sellers and awaiting the next new development sales assignment.
In the past..he was the general contractor and interior designer on several distinctive custom homes ranging from 8,000 to 12,000 SF and his eye for style and interior design capabilities attracted Home & Garden TV to feature him on a Celebrity Home Show. Rik has achieved success in many arenas including construction, development, big-box land assemblage, property management, luxury residential and commercial sales and leasing.
Rik’s extensive knowledge in General Contracting and Interior Design give him the ability provide his customers with ideas, thoughts and direction, if necessary, in staging, renovation, home improvement and interior decorating/ finishes. Whether buying or selling, many of my clients have found this to be very beneficial. “I am compassionate, conscientious, detail-oriented, and acutely sensitive to the needs of others, with the ability to discern what my clients need.”
“While knowledge and resources are crucial, hard work, unsurpassed service and caring is what sets agents apart. This starts by knowing that you will rely on me for direction and insight in the weeks and months ahead. My focus is to provide as much knowledge as you need to comfortably and seamlessly purchase or sell your next home. The “client first” philosophy has always been my approach. It is my promise to be your advocate with sincerity, integrity and the commitment to pursuing only the highest standards.”
Aside from Real Estate, Rik is an accomplished jazz guitarist, composer and fine artist. He earned an Arranging and Composition Degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, has composed over 50 original pieces, and performs live from time to time. His original artwork & sculptures have been exhibited at various galleries. He is also an avid tennis player (USTA 4.5).
He is a very proud father of two children. His son graduated from the University of Michigan and in Spring of 2018 and has recently graduated from Tufts School of Dental Medicine in Boston. He is now at NYU furthering his education in a 2 year Dental Implant Program while practicing dentistry in Manhattan NY. His daughter has completed undergrad at the University of Michigan studying Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics and is now in a DRPT grad program in upstate NY.
