Tom Hughes, Founding Principal

Originally from the Finger Lakes region of Western New York, Tom Hughes relocated to Jupiter, FL in 1986 and has been a Broker in the region for over three decades. His intimate market knowledge is paired with his commitment to client service and connection, offering a deeper level of care for buyers, sellers, and investors throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties. He specializes in luxury resale and new construction homes and condominiums in Jupiter, Tequesta, Jupiter Island, Palm Beach, Juno Beach, Hobe Sound, Stuart, North Palm Beach, and Manalapan.


Tom operates with a service-first and compassionate approach. Formerly a funeral director, his foundation as an agent is built on helping people navigate times of high stress and emotion, a skill set he utilizes in real estate to help alleviate the intensity of the buying and selling process. He listens as well as he speaks, giving clients the space to communicate and collaborate with him as he guides them to the finish line and brings their goals to fruition. As a Founding Principal for Compass Jupiter at the Hughes Browne Group, a team of 15 agents and administrative staff including his two daughters, Tom offers top-notch market expertise and a wide-ranging network of resources and services to raise the bar in the South Florida real estate market.


Matched with the powerhouse Compass technology and service offering, including data & analytics software, staging and renovations through Compass Concierge, and a centralized single-platform interface, Tom can streamline communication, awareness, and transaction timeline, freeing up time for him to give back to her clients. He also has access to a national network of agents that open doors to new opportunities and quality referral relationships outside of his market.


Tom welcomes the opportunity to earn your business and utilize his resources to explore the exclusive communities and pristine areas from Jupiter to Palm Beach, monitor real estate activity in your neighborhood or areas of interest, and peek inside some of Florida’s most spectacular luxury properties. He is involved in numerous charitable and civic groups in his community: cystic fibrosis, Hope for the Warriors, Rotary International, Selfless Love, Jupiter Medical Center, and as a Honda Classic Ambassador. In his off time, he enjoys playing golf, boating, and spending time with friends and family.
