When his tenant representation company Hughes Marino opened in San Diego in 1988, the area was plagued by an economic recession. But, that proved to be a huge opportunity for Jason and his clients. When he saw the downturn, the CEO decided he had to expand, so in 1993, he relocated Hughes Marino to the city’s posh, swanky Marina Del Rey. There, Jason Hughes would work hand in hand with some of the country’s top agents to buy and sell multimillion-dollar, high-net-worth assets. He was selling properties like diamonds in the rough, but that approach paid off, and today, Jason’s firm has expanded throughout California.
