Hughes Marino Offering Free Services to Businesses
Hughes Marino, a commercial real estate company specializing in tenant representation, announced that it will provide businesses with free space availability surveys for all areas of San Diego. Surveys will be available for the entire county, for lease or purchase, and be segregated by Office, Industrial, Retail, Medical or Laboratory space. The surveys can be accessed at www.FreeSpaceSurvey.com.
“Occasionally, business owners and senior management are reluctant to commit to working with one particular broker in their early stages of space evaluation,” said Jason Hughes, president of the firm. “It is our desire to help educate decision makers about their space alternatives — without feeling pressure to work with anyone in particular.”
Hughes Marino has also started offering complimentary Lease Expiration Reminder Services as well as complimentary Tax Credit Evaluations as additional value-added benefits for clients and non-clients alike. The Lease Expiration Reminder Service allows business owners and senior management to input one or more lease expirations for one or more locations — and the Hughes Marino reminder service will automatically notify the owners at 24, 18, 12 and 6 month prior to their lease expiration. Hughes said that the inspiration came from a particular business owner thinking his lease expired a year later than reality — and the landlord gouged him as a result of not being educated on his options.
The free Tax Credit Evaluation is being provided as many business owners don’t know if they are located in the Enterprise Zone or not. “Many owners are simply unaware that they are located in the Enterprise Zone — or numerous other locations that allow for tax incentives — and we want to educate them on their potential tax credits and refund potential,” said Hughes.
