ANSDALE, PA — The team at Vantage Com- mercial is thrilled to announce the successful sale of the business and mixed-use real estate at Hopwood School and Camp, located in Lans- dale. Ken Richardson , ex- ecutive director, and Corinne Giletto , senior advisor at Vantage Commercial, worked with both the buyer and seller to execute a successful sale of both Hopwood’s business and assets during a crucial time in the US Economy (COVID-19). The Hopwood School was established in 1968 (as Hop- wood Nursery School) and the Hopwood Summer Day Camp in 1981 by Ann and Richard Hopwood. Their daughter, Heidi Hopwood Geverd, and her husband, Brian Geverd, continued the legacy until 2021. The school’s enrollment grew through the years and the school became a staple in the community under the direction of Heidi and Brian. In preparation for retirement, Heidi and Brian Geverd en- gaged the services of Van- tage Commercial to perform a valuation of the business and real estate and to identify an operator capable of carrying on the family’s legacy. Vantage Commercial has had tremendous success mar- keting and selling business entities of all types, includ- ing childcare facilities. These transactions require excep- tional skill as all parties need to be aligned on every facet of the business: finances, man- agement, real estate, and others. The brokerage has successfully aligned sellers and buyers of multiple child- care facilities, even during the COVID pandemic. VantageCommercial sourced an operator that presented the most ideal combination of busi- ness acumen, cultural aware- ness and complementary man- agement styles. Cassey and Annie O’Rourke will continue to enforce the highest-quality educational standards, core values, and family-inspired en- vironment that the Hopwood’s initiated, while integrating the needs and desires of the modern family. “It has been a pleasure working with the Vantage team through this acquisition process. Richardson and Gilet- to’s guidance was instrumental to creating a relationship with
