“Poe and Cronk is proud to have played a role in bringing this new employer to our community. It was a team effort to land a project like this for the Roanoke Valley. Over the past four months, our firm worked closely with the Roanoke County Department of Economic Development, the Roanoke Valley Economic Development Partnership, and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to sell the purchaser on the Roanoke Valley and the Hanover Direct Building,” remarked Cronk. Poe & Cronk Real Estate Group originally handled the acquisition of the property by Hanover Direct in 1994 for their Fulfillment Center.
“We were amazed at how much interest the offering of this building created from local, national, and even international buyers” noted Matt Huff. “Once we showed potential buyers how perfectly situated the Roanoke Valley is for their business and the benefits this building offered, they wanted to schedule a visit. I wish we had more than one of these buildings to offer.”
