Get to Know Valerie Porter-Hanchar

As A Third Generation Dunnellonite I Have The Unique Knowledge & History Of The Tri-County Area (Citrus,Levy & Marion).  Having A Florida Real Estate License For 17 Years & Co-Owning One Of The Oldest Real Estate Firms In Dunnellon Gives A Seller Or Buyer The Assurance That Honesty & Professionalism Are A Top Priority Of Mine & My Firm. 

I Started Our Property Management Department Back In 1991 With 2 Individual Homes, We Now Manage Over 120 Individual Landlord/Tenants. Short Term & Full Term Homes, Some Waterfront Homes & Condos Along W/Acreage Is In Our Inventory Now.

For 7 Years I Was An Elected Councilwoman & Vice-Mayor For The Dunnellon City Council. This Experience Allowed Me To Become An Even Better Realtor By Gaining Knowledge Of Zoning, Planning, Comprehensive Plans, Effective Negotiating & Much More.  I Have Been the Chairwoman Of Many County & City Boards.  A Former Member Of The Ocala Junior League & Their President, This Allowed Me To Work With Foster Children In Various Avenues.  I Am A Life Long Member Of The Dunnellon Presbyterian Church & A Current Elder.  I Take Time To Volunteer W/Relay For Life & At My Daughter's Elementary School.  All Of These Activities Help Me To Know What Is Happening In My Community & Allows Me To Give Back.

Our Town Is Unique W/Two Rivers, The Crystal Clear Rainbow River Which Flows Into The North Flowing Withlacoochee River (One Of Only 7 In The World).  Great Bass Fishing, Swimming, Tubing, Bird Watching W/A Gator Or Two For Fun. The Golfing Is World Class, Horse Trails & Facilities Abound, Hunting Areas, Antique Shops & Only 15 Mins. From The Gulf Of Mexico, Less than 2 Hrs From The Atlantic, Tampa & Orlando.  I Know The Areas Ins & Outs W/A Few Stories To Tell.

If You Are A Horse Enthusiast I Have Been Ridding English Hunter/Jump For Decades & Now My Daughter Does As Well.  The Ridding Trails Are Great & Western Ridding Is Big Around Here As Well. We Have Some Of The Best Soil For A Large Or A Small Gentleman's Farm.  Farming Also Runs In My Blood.

My Mother Once Said "Valerie Can Show A Client Where The Best Fishing Hole Is To Where The Next Black Tie Affair Will Be Held".  As A Buyer Let Me Show You the Part Of Dunnellon That Best Suits You, Trust Me I Know Where To Find It & How To Help You Obtain It.  If You Are A Seller I Know Your Property & Know How To Market It For Just The Right Buyer, No Matter The Market.


As A Realtor W/17 Years Experience & A Native Of The Area, I Have Seen The Market Go Up, Down & All Around. My Experience Can Help Guide Any Buyer Or Seller. Dunnellon Is Unique Let Me Show You Why!
