Roland Loelkes, Cal BRE 01349994

Mr. Loelkes graduated from California State University, Chico and began his real estate career in 2001 after working for Philip Morris four prior years.

He is a second generation Real Estate Consultant/Broker and has a local nickname called "Pipeline" because of his uncanny ability to produce more quality projects in a week that most agents do in a year. His initial experience began in brokering commercial land for residential developments, where he has sold over 3,000 acres to date, as well as representing Industrial, Commercial/Retail and Office clients.

Later he then transitioned into the residential sales market, starting with managing and selling REO's (Foreclosures) for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and VA. Living in Laguna Niguel since 1997 has given him a vast knowledge of the Coastal Orange County market, where he shares his knowledge with his clients. This has educated him to specialize in Coastal Residential and Development Properties as well as continuing his involvement in Commercial Real Estate.

Having this extensive range, allows Roland to assist his clients in both the Residential and Commercial Sectors of real estate, including working with clients in need with their investments and exchanges.


Charles Kluger

Mr. Kluger has been in the residential development industry for more than 40 years. Charlie's life passion is building. He especially loves the production side of the business, once stating that "...the only thing I ever wanted to do or ever want to do is build quality homes..."

Prior to joining Hanover's team almost 20 years ago Mr. Kluger had worked for the largest developer in California contracting and managing large land development projects and apartment projects. After that he worked for one of the best known regional, family owned home builders who was recognized for their quality of design and construction.

It is Mr. Kluger's commitment to execution, starting with design, followed by clear contracting of responsibilities and costs, precise scheduling and culminating in the completion of the building process that is really responsible for the recognition Mr. Richter received from Professional Builder Magazine.


Zane Cannaday

With experience in building multiple high rise hotels, building and remodeling some of the finest hotels in California, building schools, office buildings, big box retail and distribution space, data processing centers and other commercial projects Mr. Cannaday has amassed nearly 30 years of heavy, red iron construction experience.

He can handle the simple or the most complex project.  His philosophy is "...minimize mistakes..." by studying your plans, knowing the product and specifications and visualizing even the smallest detail.

He explains that in the hotel building process if you make one simple mistake of simple  detail such as a door swinging is actually  very costly, very quickly because it was not just one mistake but a mistake repeated 300 times i.e. in every room under construction.

Managing multiple high rise buildings under construction takes a team. That team needs a leader. Zane is that leader. He is a solid team player.


We have been fortunate to work with a number of great consultants over the years. Groups that provide services like site planning for acquistion and due diligence evaluations, marketing studies, engineering, architectural design, and interior design. There are many wonderful reources out there that are perfect fits for various project types.

Over the last 25 years we have formed special relationships with two of these groups.
