Our story is rooted in the entrepreneurial spirit of the first generation of the Bolour Family that moved to Eastern Europe in the 1950s to begin the international expansion of a thriving textile business. From there, the growth continued to take shape in Southern California in the 1980’s and ‘90’s with the family’s investment in value-add commercial real estate in emerging neighborhoods such as Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles and Koreatown.

Today, our real estate business has evolved into a fully integrated investment, development and finance enterprise that brings the depth of its relationships, collective intelligence and enduring vision to all of its endeavors.

We continue to write the next chapter of our story every day with the same entrepreneurial spirit that inspired the Bolour Family. It motivates us in everything we do and with everyone we connect.

The company has completed large scale renovations of existing product with the goal of adding value and repositioning the asset to align with the needs and strength of the community.

The company’s most recent example of this approach is 149-units located in La Quinta, CA, where Hanes competed with seven other local and national buyers before closing escrow. The newly renovated property now maintains a near at-capacity occupancy

The company has also developed high end urban infill projects consisting of 100 multifamily units or more.

Today, Hanes Properties, LLC remains family owned and operated and is actively seeking to expand its portfolio. Hanes is a private investor – not a syndicator. The boutique, hands-on nature of the company affords it the opportunity to act quickly as opportunities arise and finalize the due diligence within a reasonably short period of time.
