Get to know Hughes Marino on a deeper level
Hughes Marino was born out of a single idea: Provide tenants and buyers with the representation they deserve.
In a time when commercial real estate brokerages worked almost exclusively in the service of landlords, Hughes Marino knew the commercial real estate industry was due for a revolution. Breaking away from the traditional brokerage model, the team became pioneers in the field of tenant representation by championing the underdog — advocating for companies that had never before gotten a fair shake at the bargaining table when going up against sophisticated landlords in their negotiations for commercial space.
Now, decades later, Hughes Marino is one of the most highly regarded tenant representation firms in the country, offering unmatched expertise and deep operational support to clients nationwide. Owned by husband and wife team Jason Hughes, Chairman & CEO, and Shay Hughes, President & COO, Hughes Marino is 100% family owned, which means that we don’t have to answer to shareholders. Our sole fiduciary duty is to protect the interests of our clients, and we do it better than anyone else in the business.
Who We Are
Over the years, Hughes Marino has nurtured a collaborative and people-focused culture that fuels innovation. As a family-owned and locally-operated business, our team believes in creating lasting relationships based on trust. We cultivate those relationships by taking amazing care of the people behind the companies, nonprofits and municipalities that make our communities wonderful places to live, play and do business.
