At Hanover Family Builders, our roots in the building industry run deep. William S. Orosz, Sr. began his journey in the real estate industry in the early 1900’s. Growing up during the Great Depression, enduring financial struggles, and being unable to earn a formal education, Orosz Sr., through his tenacity and resilience, became a successful real estate entrepreneur in Royal Oak, Michigan.
His only son, William Orosz, Jr., shared the same passion and continued in his father’s footsteps. Orosz, Jr. moved to Orlando in the 1980’s as President of Catalina Homes before starting his own local homebuilding company, Cambridge Homes. Over the next 14 years, Orosz Jr. led Cambridge to be one of Central Florida’s largest private homebuilders before selling to a public company in 2005.
The next generation of the Orosz family, Matt and Steve Orosz, began their own path in home building with the formation of Royal Oak Homes in 2011. Under their leadership, Royal Oak went on to be recognized by Builder Magazine as the Fastest Growing Homebuilder in the Nation in both 2013 and 2014, before Royal Oak was sold to a public builder in 2014.
In 2017, Matt and Steve, now joined by their brother Andrew and industry veteran Colby Franks, formed Hanover Family Builders. The 4 Principals are extremely passionate about the Central Florida communities they live and continue to grow their families in, always making decisions with the local community in mind, taking great care of their employees, and giving back.
We are proud to deliver outstanding craftsmanship, superior living features, and first-class customer service – all packaged together at a remarkable value – to our communities. We have had the honor of keeping this pledge for three generations which is why we’re confident when we say that “Our Legacy is Building Yours."
