ALLENTOWN, PA — Allentown-based Dietrick Group, LLC announces celebration of its tenth business anniversary. The company was formed by Linda L. Dietrick, a principal partner, to service the commercial real estate appraisal needs of firms and individuals active throughout the Lehigh Valley.
In the past decade, Dietrick Group has represented a who’s who of business leaders in Lehigh Valley’s world of real estate development and investment, banking and government
The firm has since grown exponentially to include office, industrial and retail brokerage and property management. In those efforts, she is joined by her two partners (and children) Kelly Berfield and Ryan Dietrick, who have been with the company almost from its inception.
Over the years it has closed some of the area’s largest real estate transactions and currently has nearly 40 properties under its management.
As evidence of her non-business activities, Ms. Dietrick also believes strongly in giving back to the community. Once a month she and her staff visit a local charity as part of an ongoing volunteerism effort. Over the years Dietrick Group, LLC has worked on-site at Feed the Children, Sixth Street Shelter, Rodale Institute, Sanctuary at Haafsville, Habitat ReStore, Phoebe Ministries, Bethlehem Public Library, Lehigh Valley Zoo, JUCC’s Peace Garden, Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley and Luminaria Night. Ms. Dietrick has also served on the Board of Directors of Civic Theater of Allentown, Board of Associates at Muhlenberg College, and is also a mentor to students at Lehigh University seeking a career in real estate and finance.
She is further supported in a number of philanthropic efforts by her daughter Kelly who has been active for many years in Habitat for Humanity, and her son Ryan who has raised thousands of dollars in behalf of pancreatic cancer in tribute to his late father Donald.
