Overview

Known as a dealmaker, Quino and his team are accessible and responsive, anticipate and address client's needs, deliver accurate and timely counsel, and help clients close on their transactions.

Quino Martinez is the president, chief executive officer, and managing partner of Lowndes. Martinez concentrates his practice on commercial leasing and real estate investment and development. His clients include public and private real estate investors, developers, property management companies and brokerage firms, as well as non-profits. 

Quino has extensive experience handling the acquisition, financing, development and disposition of multifamily developments, industrial properties, office buildings, shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, golf courses and other resort-related developments, retirement communities and vacant land. He has also represented national lending institutions in connection with commercial loan transactions, workouts and loan restructuring.

Whether focusing on commercial leasing, real estate investment and development or financing, Quino takes ownership of his clients’ transactions. Described by his clients as a deal-maker, Quino and his team work hard to ensure that their deals close in a timely manner and that their clients’ objectives are met. Qualities honed by his Jesuit education – integrity, initiative in service of others, patience, persistence and excellent communication – have endeared him to clients and colleagues alike. Those same traits afforded him leadership roles with the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia, the City of Orlando Board of Zoning Adjustment and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando. He also initiated a community partnership and sustained mentoring program between Lowndes and the FAMU College of Law.

Licensed to practice law in Florida, Georgia and Texas, Quino is proud to be connected to each of those states and routinely assists clients in matters in each locale.
