Dream Team
The brightest individuals, with bold ideas, working toward smart solutions...

are people who inspire.

We collaborate with our clients and communities every day. Whatever the development project,
we never run into exactly the same challenge. We are forced to be creative and find unique answers in all
aspects of our company. Having the disciplines of real estate, development, and construction working together,
promotes stronger integration and a clear path for learning from our colleagues.

Building success across the nation.

Karen J. Hutton, with a rich history in commercial leasing and deep roots in development, founded her own company in 1994 with a focus on cultivating lasting client relationships and providing the highest level of service. Led by Karen's contagious energy and passion, the company which employs a team of over 170 dedicated professionals, continues to reach beyond expectations.
"Time Kills Deals," says Hutton, which translates into more than 185 owned and managed developments with more than 800 freestanding locations delivered. HUTTON's "hands on" philosophy starts at the top with Karen as she is involved with day-to-day operations. Hutton is licensed to build in 44 states and our numbers just keep growing.

Developing strong relationships

is the reason for success at HUTTON. Communication and mutual respect have inspired long term,
collaborative partnerships between our clients, employees, investors and communities nationwide.
HUTTON, in collaboration with Hutton Construction Inc., has completed 987 projects in 35 states and counting.

Your success
drives our growth

HUTTON's expertise in delivering service, efficiency and value is exceptional. However, we go beyond those core attributes to gain real insight into our client's mission, to reflect their values and to embody the company's identity.

Reflecting that vision, while meeting their business goals, is at the root of every decision our people make. Investing in the success of clients, tenants, employees, brokers, subcontractors and community's inspire the projects we develop.


We are proud
of the
of our people.

Our TEAM is responsible for HUTTON's
level of client satisfaction and repeat
successes. That's why finding the
brightest people and fostering their
growth is so important to us.
We are actively recruiting.
Finding people who will work hard
for our clients and support their
vision while embracing our values
and enhancing our culture is just as
important to us as it is to you.
