Valencia means “valor” or “strength”. Founded as a Roman colony under the name Valentia Edetanorum in 138 BC, Valencia is one of the oldest and third largest cities in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. The famous Paella dish made of rice, saffron, seafood and other delicious ingredients cooked and served in a large shallow pan was born in Valencia.
Dina Lima, broker/owner of Valencia Properties, named the company in honor of her Hispanic heritage. Dina takes her Latino strength, friendly, and community approach into her business and client relationships.
