Dina Lima

Broker & Owner | Bilingual Realtor®

Dina Lima

I’m Dina Lima, Broker/Owner of Valencia Properties and Bilingual Realtor® in Fort Worth, Texas offering exceptional service with integrity and expertise.

I am a full-time, full-service Real Estate Broker with a broad knowledge of what’s happening in the housing industry. I started my real estate career as a home builder working with families to build their beautiful energy-efficient homes. Since then, I’ve learned how much we love to personalize our spaces for comfort, functionality, restoration, and renewal. That is why I love helping families achieve the American dream of owning their home. 

Having helped many home buyers and sellers from different cultures, I understand that buying and selling properties can be emotionally stressful due to do a myriad of decisions to be made and complex processes that may be confusing. Being full-time and active in the housing industry allows me to be more helpful and resourceful to my clients.

As a local Realtor® member of real estate industry associations, I’m an advocate of laws and policies that benefit homeowners.

Did you know that only 4% of realtors nationwide earn professional designations?

I have earned:

  • Seller Representative Specialist (SRS), the premier credential in Seller representation.

I’m currently completing my Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation that provides in-depth knowledge on the fundamentals of real estate to best serve my clients.


Prior to earning my real estate license…

  • Owned and operated my home construction company building high-performance homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex
  • Built the Savvy Idea Home 2006 in partnership with Building Savvy Magazine
  • Co-wrote the white paper Stand Out From the Pack for Green Building Advisor
  • Co-wrote the white paper Thinning the Herd for Green Building Advisor
  • Earned an “Exemplary New Home” Award from the Greater Fort Worth Spring Tour of New Homes
  • Taught home-building and business classes for the National Association of Home Builders
  • Served as a founding builder member of Green Built Texas, which designed the green building guidelines for residential construction and currently has over 27,000 homes registered under the program that are searchable in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system used by thousands of Realtors in Texas

My professional experience stems from the IT industry in programming. I earned a master’s in computer science from the New York Institute of Technology prior to my career in real estate. I have also earned my Master in Business Administration.

In my free time, I like to spend time with family, try new recipes, and take long walks or ride my eye-catching trike with my husband in our neighborhood. Things and activities I absolutely love include my CJB Bible, a plethora of books, hot tea, learning, teaching, and realizing my dreams.

Fun Facts

I named my brokerage Valencia Properties in honor of my Hispanic heritage. Valencia means “valor” or “strength”. Valencia is also one of the oldest and third largest cities in Spain where the famous Paella dish was born. I take my Latino strength, friendly, and community approach into my business and client relationships.
