Hope Hughes

Hope Hughes believes when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade and lemon bars and lemon meringue pie! Facing a divorce and single parenthood, Hope decided to go to college to pursue a bachelor's degree and then decided to go on to law school. Upon graduating in 2009, Hope practiced bankruptcy and then trademark law before beginning her real estate practice in 2013. Hope enjoys what she does, and it shows in her focus on providing exceptional service to clients in their acquisition, disposition and development of real property.
