get-mailbox -organizationalunit contoso.com/ouname | select name,ProhibitSendQuota,ProhibitSendReceiveQuota,IssueWarningQuota,Office |export-csv c:\users.csv

you'll need to run another for the mailbox size
get-mailbox | get-mailboxstatistics | export-csv c:\size.csv

to filter the results of mailboxes by office the command is
Get-Mailbox -Filter { Office -eq "Valencia" } |  select name,office, *quota | sort name | export-csv export.csv

also you cannot use * with the select statement, it only works with format-list and format-table

This powershell works great getting the mailbox information for the office:
Get-Mailbox -Filter { Office -eq "Mission Plaza" } |  select name,office, *quota | sort name | export-csv export.csv

Now I want to implement the Quota size for this office.  I got an error when running this powershell:

Get-Mailbox -Filter { Office -eq "Mission Plaza" } | Set-Mailbox { Office -eq "Mission Plaza" } -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults:$False -IssueWarningQuota 150 MB -ProhibitSendQuota 200 MB

Error:
Set-Mailbox : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'Office -eq "Mission Plaza" '.
