Charlie Cangelosi

Charlie Cangelosi PIC

Charlie was born and raised in San Fernando, California where he excelled at playing basketball and was a quick and feisty shooting guard.

Once he realized he wasn’t going to be the next Larry Bird, he set his sights on the real estate industry and hasn’t looked back for over 20 years.

Charlie started his career in 1991 with La Cagnina & Associates as a runner and worked his way up to Sr. Leasing Associate before the company was sold to Grubb & Ellis in 1996. While with Grubb & Ellis Management Services (GEMS), Charlie was put in charge of the West Coast Leasing effort for all the Managed properties within the GEMS portfolio (over 8 million square feet of shopping centers).

Charlie then took a job as Director or Leasing for UDO Real Estate where he grew the Leasing department to include Tenant Rep, Landlord Rep and Shopping Center sales. Upon Leaving UDO Real Estate Charlie joinedOTO Development specializing in the roll out of extended stay brand hotels for Hilton and Marriott in the west coast. Charlie’s next stop was at O&S Holdings, where he managed and leased their US portfolio.

Missing the entrepreneurial call of Brokerage, Charlie joined Retail Net Lease Properties, Inc. (RNLP), where he worked with many different Tenant’s and Landlord’s eventually becoming a partner in the firm. In 2012, Charlie made the jump to Present Value Properties, Inc. (PVP, Inc.) to open their Los Angeles county office in Woodland Hills. In 2014 he reunited Kevin Barry at Irish Commercial Brokerage to continue their successful partnership.

You can still find Charlie in the local gym, but these days he wears a coaches hat, teaching the local youth how to perfect that jump shot.

One of Craig’s favorite accomplishments while at Studley was having three beautiful and talented children - Michelle, Lauren and John. One of his favorite work projects was becoming the Western-region real estate representatives for H mart in 2006. Working with the largest Asian supermarket chain in the US for over 10 years has provided an opportunity to help other Asian retailers in the market such as Haidilao restaurant group with their Hotpot and Shabushabu concepts.

Richard Landess

In the early years Richard's family moved from Santa Cruz to Pacific Palisades where he and identical twin brother Scott, livened up the neighborhood and played on the Pali High football Team. He continued to impart fun at San Diego State and UCLA.

Richard entered the world of retail real estate in 1978 when he joined the Downtown Los Angeles office of Grubb & Ellis. Richard opened the retail division of the San Gabriel Valley office, getting him closer to brother Scott, who was then at Grubb / Ontario. In 1989 Richard joined the retail division of CB, then to Lee & Associates in '96, and then teamed up with brother Scott for a long run at Strategic Properties in '97. Richard joined Irish Commercial Brokerage in early 2013, reuniting with his little buddy Kipper.

Richard has successfully represented Landlords and Tenant's over the years, but he found his true calling when he associated with Walgreens who was entering the market in the mid '90s. Known as "The Dirt Dogs", "The Dynamic Duo", or sometimes "Two Tons of Fun", Richard and Scott completed the amazing feat of assembling over 90 prime signalized corners for new Walgreens drive-thrus. Their success stemmed from their honest approach and their abundant ability to make friends with everyone they met.

Richard is presently working his magic assembling sites for CVS Pharmacy in the Los Angeles marketplace.
