For more than 20 years Hughes Properties has operated as a full-service, Business Opportunity focused organization in the Palm Springs area.
We are much more than a sales force. We are consensus-oriented in that a buyer and seller must reach their optimum deal; one that is fair to both parties. A satisfying Win-Win situation for all.
We work diligently with Sellers to determine the top dollar value of their business. The valuation has to reflect numerous key factors while dialing in the personalized variables of how each business is run. Over the years we have learned the truest fair value is calculated by looking closely at the Seller‘s Cash Flow to determine the Profit model for that particular business.
From Day One Hughes Properties has blown past borders marketing all business listings on a global scale. We have always recognized the Palm Springs area as having it’s own particular brand of world wide recognition and appeal. As such, we advertise our business listings globally and work hard to provide service around the clock. We take pride in the number of E2 Visas we have had approved for buyers who hail from Canada, France, Switzerland, Portugal, England, Peru, along with so many other countries.
Through our experience in getting these E2 Visas approved, we are able to successfully sell someone’s business thereby allowing them to write their next chapter, while a new family gains the opportunity to live the American dream of running their own business. Many times Sellers are ready to move on to an exciting new venture, or perhaps they’re ready to retire, maybe move closer to family. Wherever you are in life, whatever your goals, we’re here to help you sell the business you have built over the years and move on, while for others we stand ready to find you the ideal opportunity to be your own boss and move up.
Whether it’s retail, manufacturing, restaurants, hotels or service businesses; Hughes Properties offers you the precise knowledge and expertise. Navigating liquor licenses, for example, can hold up a sale for months delaying the purchase of that restaurant, cafe, bar or hotel you want. But with Hughes Properties at your side, the entire process is streamlined and we easily guide you through every step.
Hughes Properties, like most good ideas, wasn’t planned but rather evolved. As a life-long entrepreneur, I had just retired for the 3rd time and even in sunny, exciting Palm Springs I found myself once again getting bored. After some thought, I decided upon business consulting, knowing that the many industries I had started and sold businesses in, would serve many other entrepreneurs. That only lasted a few months as my clients began requesting more than my advice. They wanted me to sell their business.
That was the catalyst for Hughes Properties. I got my Real Estate License and then my Brokers License, since most brokers have agents trained to sell houses and do not want their agents trying to sell Business Opportunities.
This was 2002 and business was thriving. With a few choice listings in hand, I joined every organization I could find in the Coachella Valley. That feels like only yesterday, yet here we are 20 years later still helping entrepreneurs realize their dreams. Hughes Properties has sold hundreds and hundreds of businesses and we’re still going strong.
