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

“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.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
