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.
"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."
"Good Technology hired Hughes Marino to secure new office space for our engineering development site. Hughes Marino was asked to assist us with practically no notice; they provided us with a successful tour of qualified buildings in the area we needed to be. Our CEO was equally impressed with their professionalism, knowledge of the current market place and listening to our needs. Hughes Marino connected with me in a timely manner regarding outstanding issues and questions. They resolved challenging points with successful outcomes. The team at Hughes Marino is exactly the type of service provider I enjoy; no issues, and gets the job done with integrity and professionalism. Hughes Marino is and will remain extremely successful in the real estate field."
"I can’t recommend Hughes Marino enough. They are the absolute “go-to” real estate firm. They helped me find, negotiate and purchase the Mindgruve building – and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve worked with a lot of brokers over the years, but Hughes Marino is on a whole different level. I trust them implicitly, and I think most other companies do too. Nearly everyone I know works with them; a further testament to their high quality knowledge and service."
"Hughes Marino has become preeminent experts on downtown commercial office space. Almost everyone I know uses them – giving them incredible leverage with the landlords. The knowledge and capability of Hughes Marino reminds me of the Wizard of Oz. They are truly amazing."
"Hughes Marino’s extensive experience and deep knowledge of the market has proved invaluable in helping create realistic expectations and negotiating the best deal possible. Having engaged the Hughes Marino team 4 times, the next time I need representation, Hughes Marino is the only company I would consider working with."
"There are many of us in Southern California who consider Hughes Marino to be the most effective tenant-focused firm in real estate in our market area. Hughes Marino successfully represented HCAP Partners twice during the last 10 years, first identifying excellent quality space for our head office in San Diego, and later assisting us in relocating and expanding our growing business into equally good quality space at a much lower price per square foot than I thought possible. In both cases we leased from the Irvine Company and I couldn’t have been more impressed with Hughes Marino's performance. In both cases they used in-house lawyers for documentation and in-house construction managers for the build out. My experience has been that Hughes Marino excels at locating and negotiating deals, and has been significantly more favorable for us than have been several of their competitors."
"Our family at Mission Legal Center was thrilled by the results achieved by Hughes Marino. They were able to get us everything we wanted! We have noticed in our practice, as well as with our experience with Hughes Marino, that using a specialist in a field makes a tremendous difference in results. We look forward to using Hughes Marino for our commercial real estate needs in the future."
"We needed to find top-quality office space in a hurry. Hughes Marino delivered. They found us space that fit our needs perfectly and they negotiated great economics."
"Jason and the team at Hughes Marino provided a quality of service like we were leasing the entire building, not just one of the 30 floors. We felt like they were part of our company as they led us through the sourcing and leasing process."
"After not having much luck on our own and using another tenant rep, we hired Hughes Marino to help us renegotiate our lease for our office space. The market and our office needs had changed substantially and we were overpaying for our space. Hughes Marino developed a plan and was more aggressive dealing with the property management company. The plan was executed and we renewed our lease early with a substantial decrease in the cost per square foot along with updates to terms."
