Deb Hanson

Your Dog Walking Realtor for Charlotte & Sarasota County

Deb Hanson


Deb Hanson


Originally from New England, Deb Hanson now calls Lake Suzy home. She has over 30 years of customer service under her belt, having worked for one of the largest insurance companies in Boston for over 27 years. This love for customer service and helping others led Deb to obtain her Florida real estate license. 

“Hardworking,” “enthusiastic,” “detail oriented,” and “dedicated, professional agent” are just some of the descriptors that customers use for her. 

As an agent who’s an expert in the local area, Deb brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things Deb can do for you:

Find Your Next Home 

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! Deb can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter — not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

Sell a Home 

When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. Deb can take care of everything you need from start to close. 

Consult on Home-Selling Tactics 

Oftentimes, buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. Deb can make your home attractive to its ideal audience, which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home that rests on the market and one that sells quickly. 

As your real estate agent, Deb will be an advocate for you. Whether you’re buying or selling, she will work tirelessly to promote your best interests. If you are selling, she will work with you to get you the fairest price in the least amount of time. If you are buying, she will work hard to provide you with the best market data to inform and assist you so you can be a well-equipped buyer.

Deb certainly wears many hats, but the one she loves the most is her “dog-walking” hat. She’s a very proud volunteer at the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County! With every home sale, Deb donates a portion of her commission to subsidize adoption fees, making sure no dog gets left behind.
