"Good Technology hired Hughes Marino to secure new office space for our engineering development site in San Diego, California. 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."

Facilities Manager, Good Technology

"Hughes Marino’s extensive experience and deep knowledge of the San Diego 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."

— Grant Miller

CFO/COO, Sandel Avionics

"As someone who has engaged Hughes Marino services in multiple corporate real estate undertakings, they are the consummate professionals. Their knowledge of the greater San Diego commercial real estate ecosystem is unsurpassed, and their integrity and commitment to their clients are without equal. Their knowledge and experience enable them to quickly and thoroughly assess commercial real estate challenges and opportunities and to generate best-case outcomes for his clients. Importantly, they always are there when their clients need them, as my company recently did when our building flooded. Their professional standard is matched by their unselfish and generous commitment to the San Diego community in numerous charitable and social service activities. San Diego is a better place because of Hughes Marino, and many charitable and social service agencies have been the direct beneficiary of their efforts and generosity."

"Every once in a while, a service provider surfaces that completely resets your expectations of what that industry can provide, and does so with unparalleled professionalism. Over time you realize that they have become a partner as opposed to simply a service provider. Meet Hughes Marino."

— Greg White


"Their market knowledge is incredibly valuable to me and my company. Hughes Marino’s perseverance yields results far exceeding expectations, and partnering with them has certainly benefitted me as the Facilities Manager in charge of real estate decisions. Not all brokers involve the parties responsible for ultimately operating and maintaining the building when it is occupied. They understand and respect the intricacies of my position and value the service I provide internally to my company. I can trust them, and share confidential information with them knowing it will be kept as such. Obviously, financial considerations are the biggest priority. Hughes Marino helps with the cost considerations AND helps keep operating expenses low–on our most recent renewal, they cut our rent by over 40%. They’ve become involved in many property management issues we had over the years, even working with the landlord to get the trees trimmed back from our building!"

— Mike Cain


"Hughes Marino has provided stellar results for us in both San Diego and Orange County. In all cases, substantial savings and more favorable terms were realized with their professional tenant focused expertise. In one instance, three contiguous properties owned by three separate landlords was renegotiated by Hughes Marino in a way that justified staying rather than relocating to a new site. I strongly recommend Hughes Marino for all your commercial real estate needs"
