39 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Real Estate Development and ownership is a complex science that demands in-depth knowledge of market trends; a deeply analytical yet entrepreneurial approach to identifying opportunities; a hands-on approach to the entitlement and construction process; and attention to operating results including tenant retention and rigorous cost controls; all with the goal of developing high-quality properties that create long-term economic value while minimizing risk.The Hughes Properties team combines their long experience, gained over multiple business cycles and across multiple real estate sectors, to go beyond standard approaches and bring creative solutions and strategies that are tailored to the unique characteristics of each project and the community in which it’s located.For over 40 years, we have built trust with our investors, development partners, communities and tenants by being responsive, reliable, knowledgeable, and transparent.

Ron and I met when he started working on the first student high-rise on the University of Michigan Campus built since 1964. I feel that it was the most difficult project seen in Ann Arbor in many years. Ron’s reputation, dedication, integrity, and skills were the only way this project was brought to completion. After that project, Ron redeveloped the former flagship Border’s Book Store in downtown Ann Arbor. It’s the most successful and desired retail/office project that the downtown has seen. I’d work with Ron, and stake my reputation and dedication, to any of his future projects.-Jim Chaconas | Colliers International

We’ve had a great working relationship with Hughes Properties on projects in Birmingham and Ann Arbor, Michigan. They know how to set a project up for success in regards to the early work of entitlement. They also understand the long lead time action items that need to be tackled before any dirt is moved and their efforts clear the way for a smooth construction kick-off.-William Pursifull | Wolverine Building Group
