What our clients say about us
The Best and Brightest
Our team is proud to have represented some of the most incredible
businesses and organizations in the country.
"We believe if you represent both plaintiffs and defendants there’s an automatic conflict, whether it be real or perceived. So it only made sense to choose Hughes Marino, a company that represents tenants only, to handle our lease negotiations in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and New York. With over 150 lawyers and 275 support staff, we have very specific space and technology requirements and Hughes Marino has the expertise to manage our leasehold improvements. We’ve certainly benefited from their tenant-only focus and full range of services. They are tireless in their efforts."
"We have a long-term relationship with the Hughes Marino team that goes back 17 years. They’ve handled many projects for us, including our corporate headquarters in Carmel Valley, our San Diego Service Center in Kearny Mesa, and numerous branch locations throughout the county, including our main downtown office. They’re very professional, and they have good, solid market information. You’re not concerned that they’re also representing one of the landlords you are negotiating with because they only do tenant representation, which for us is important."
"I have worked with the Hughes Marino team for over ten years, their knowledge of the San Diego office space market is extraordinary. They know all the players, and because they do so many deals and because of their depth of understanding of the San Diego market, I think Hughes Marino is able to help every tenant get the best deal possible."
"The style of Hughes Marino mirrors the style of the lawyers here at Cooley – they have excellent business judgment and they focus on the business goals of their clients. We have worked with Hughes Marino frequently with our own clients and have always been impressed with their skills and assertiveness. Their market knowledge is encyclopedic."
"Every time I asked for recommendations from other business leaders about commercial real estate companies who could help with our unique systems and security needs, the Hughes Marino name came up. The team they put on our account not only identified and negotiated for a terrific space, they also managed our leasehold improvements. And through their relationships helped us fill a key management position. We’ve certainly benefited from their deep local knowledge, tenant-only focus and tireless efforts on multiple fronts. Did they meet our company’s expectations? Absolutely - and in more ways than we ever expected."
"Hughes Marino is 100% focused and committed to providing businesses like ours with strategic, unbiased, professional real estate advice and representation. We knew we could trust them to look out for our best interests – and they did. We consider them an important advisor to our company."
"At Lockton, we’re client advocates so we fully understand that there’s an art to being an effective broker, optimizing terms and costs on behalf of the client. Hughes Marino delivered. They truly have their finger on the pulse of the market. We will not hesitate to contact them in the future, and we recommend them highly to the businesses we interact with each day."
"Hughes Marino has been a great partner for our company. They are a full-service organization. They helped us with construction to make the space totally suitable for our needs. They’re the best tenant representation around."
"They go way beyond finding you a space – it’s more like a relationship with an industry specialist. The level of service and attention to detail is exceptional. It’s been a great relationship."
"The folks at Hughes Marino were present, attentive, patient and responsive during what could have been a very daunting process. They earned my trust and confidence because from the start they understood the needs of our organization. As a result, we found the perfect home for Mama’s Kitchen."
