Allentown, PA — Realtors from Hanna Frederick Commercial Real Estate, a division of Howard Hanna The Frederick Group, facilitated the sale of the former Hackman’s Bible Book Store in a transaction that will enable a growing information technology firm to remain in Whitehall Township.
Realtor Randy Beitler represented the seller, Bible Fellowship Church Homes Inc., and Realtor Joe McDermott represented the buyer, Dooley Properties LLC, to close on the approximately 19,000-square-foot Mickley Road property on April 30.
Both Beitler and McDermott praised the efforts of the financing team at Riverview Bank and the work of Experience Land Services Inc. for their efforts in bringing the transaction to a successful close. The agreement of sale for the property was signed before the March 6 shutdown called by Gov. Tom Wolf, which allowed the transaction to proceed.
Dave Dooley, owner and President of Dooley Properties LLC and EZ Micro, an IT firm already based in another part of Whitehall Township, will renovate the building and move his business into the space occupied for more than 30 years by the Hackmans’ family business.
Bible Fellowship Church Homes purchased the property in 2019 shortly after Hackman’s closed, and put it back on the market after a change of plans.
“Through the collaborative efforts of these experienced agents at Howard Hanna The Frederick Group, they utilized our brokerage practices of touring properties and discussing buyers’ needs to find a great match for selling this well-known building,” said Broker and franchise owner Doug Frederick. “Whether your sale is anywhere in the nine-state area we cover through Howard Hanna or locally in a Lehigh Valley location, our team gets the job done even in the most challenging times.”
