About Hanford Dixon



"Top Shelf Service from the TOP DAWG"

I am an accomplished sports professional and business entrepreneur with a life long passion for football! I have been successful as a Professional NFL Athlete with The Cleveland Browns. Drafted by the Browns, out of The University of Southern Mississippi, in the first round of the 1981 NFL Draft. I spent my nine year career with The Browns as a cornerstone in the defensive backfield. I was First Team All-Pro in '86 & '87 & named to the Pro Bowl '86, '87, & '88!

In 2009, my teammate Frank Minnifield and I would be selected as the number two cornerback tandem in NFL history. Minnifield and I are also credited with starting the "Dawg Pound" during training camp in 1985!

I have an extensive background locally with Broadcasting that includes an On Air Personality, Commentator, TV and Radio Sports Analyst, & as needed, Sports anchor with Clear Channel Communications, Fox Sport News & WOIO!
I continue to maintain a visible presence on the football front and enjoy relationships with NFL professionals around the world.

My Business/Entrepreneurial Experience includes, becoming a Broker/Licensed Real Estate Agent. I have owned and operated my own company, worked with and maintained positive, trusting relationships with staff, clients, & interdisciplinary real estate industry professionals (realtors, appraisers, lenders). My strengths include establishing relationships with industry professionals, marketing, advertising, networking & closing sales. I have shown I am effective in earning the trust of my clients, walking them through all facets of the buying/selling process. My ability to de-escalate the pressure, when concerns are presented & ensuring premium satisfaction levels with his clients, brings me continued new business, repeat clients & many new referrals. I reside in Avon Lake, and I am the proud Father of four! Between football and Real Estate, I owned my own real estate company and was a licensed agent with Realty One and Keller Williams.
