From our very first meeting with Ria Dickason, to even after our house closing, Ria has displayed due diligence and knowledge, helping us in making the right decision when it came to purchase our first propriety in Ft McMurray. We found her to be very knowledgeable and informed about the housing market in the area and she has provided us with a great deal of research and information in planning the purchase of our home in Ft McMurray. She is thorough and organized, patient and understands all of the details involved in the purchase of a house. She does not merely show you houses for sale, but makes excellent and constructive observations that are extremely helpful based on her experience.
Her extensive experience in this business provided a wealth of knowledge that was beyond our expectations and was an invaluable part of making the whole process very smooth, comfortable and quite educational! She answered our questions promptly (i.e.: text messages, lots of emails!), addressed our concerns without making us feel any pressure, and guided us in making the right decision, what was the best thing for us in getting our new home! If any of our friends (or anyone we know) are looking to buy a home in Ft McMurray area, we would have no hesitation in recommending Ria in representing them, in finding them the right propriety and for the right price.

"We had a professional and no pressure experience from RW. He listened to the things we wanted in a home and he was very patient, taking us to numerous places before finding our new home. We highly recommend RW if you’re looking for a stress free experience.

As a first time homebuyer I couldn’t be more pleased with picking Ria Dickason as my realtor. She is organized, knowledgeable about the Fort McMurray housing market, professional, trustworthy and a pleasant person to work with. When I did decide on a house I was going out of town for the weekend and was unable to sign any paperwork. Given the problem Ria went the extra mile and submitted the necessary documents to me via email to secure the house. She is very accommodating to questions whether it is via phone, email, or text message any day of the week. When she is unavailable she lets you know well in advance and her son RW who is just as qualified and pleasant to work with is happy to help. I can’t think of any other way someone could do a better job of helping me find a home as Ria did.
As Realtor Ria is one of a kind and the best there is! She knows her market, knows her clients and her service is outstanding! She listens to her client’s wants and needs and go out of her way. Above and beyond what is required to find you your perfect family home. She gives honest advice and looks out for your best interest like a family member would. If you choose Ria as your Realtor you will have also made a friend for life!

It is with great pleasure that we provide our sentiments of the support Ria Dickason provided in finding our first home in Fort McMurray. She was a pleasure to work with and very easy to talk to, especially since we were nervous to jump into the market. She made herself available anytime we needed her and was always prompt at returning our calls or answering our questions. She showed us over 25 houses and provided her professional opinion for each one which was greatly appreciated. Ria has an ability to relieve the stress that is sometimes associated with purchasing a house with her calm and comforting personality.
We highly recommend Ria Dickason!

Finding a home in Fort McMurray for the right price is hard enough in today’s times as it is. Finding a real estate agent that really cares and goes the extra mile is even harder. Ria Dickason is that real estate agent. She takes the time to get to know you. Knows what is important and affordable to you and your family. She started by asking us what are the essentials in our new home and what price range we are looking to buy into. She then generated from this a list of approximately 25-30 homes of which we were able to view online. She asked us to pick 10 homes that we would like to view in person and arranged a tour of each house on a day that suited our needs. From our reaction and experience while visiting these homes she got a good feel of who we are and what we are looking for. She made buying a home personal and commented on good features as well as bad features. When buying time arrived she had up to date market information regarding house prices in the area and what a realistic offer is. She got us our house under the listing price. She helped through the entire process; supplying documentation, suggesting home inspectors and always being available to answer any questions we had concerning the house buying process. Ria Dickason ensured that we bought the right house for us. Her knowledge was up to date, and she was always available for her client.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Ria and RW Dickason as our realtors. Our experience with them both has been exceptional! Right from our initial meeting with Ria, and then later working with RW, both have always been very professional, accessible, and trustworthy. They work very hard, sometimes day and night, to help you achieve your goals whether it be to buy or sell a home. From our experience we can confidently say that both Ria and RW are very knowledgable about the real estate market which is reflected in the outstanding job they do. They excel at such things as providing accurate market comparables, negotiating between buyers/sellers, identifying trends within the market place as well as explaining and interpreting the legal contracts. We were able to develop a great working relationship with both Ria and RW, based on mutual respect and trust between all parties. Throughout our relationship we felt they sincerely cared about us and our family and that they only wanted the best for us. In the end, we were able to accomplish what we had set out to do, and could only have been done so with Ria and RW's hard work. We would very highly recommend them to anyone who needs a hand navigating the real estate market whether it be to buy or sell a home, or both.

It is with great pride and honor to provide a referral for Ms. Ria Dickason as a realtor. As I am totally new to Fort McMurray, my need as a condo buyer is greater. Ria provided me with not only what is required to find a condo for myself but also with the necessary guidance and information to help me get settled faster than expected. She listened and paid attention to what I was looking for. Her skills and knowledge about the job shined when the unit that I really liked turned out to be the choice of two other buyers. We went into a bidding process. I eventually bought the condo which I really like. It is also worth mentioning that my buying process is within less than a month. I am confident that Ria can provide the same great job with integrity and honesty for other home buyers. Her realty skills and hard work would be an asset to any team she would want to be with. If you need more information about Ria, please feel free to contact me.
R.W. Dickason has been a tremedous help in finding the best suited place for me to call home. I had contacted R.W. before moving to Fort McMurray, and he was more than willing to take me on a tour of potential properties I was interested in seeing, before I had even moved here. Upon arriving in Fort McMurray, again he was accomodating in showing more potential properties that I was interested in... Thankfully, R.W. always kept my best intrests in mind, and reccomended that I look at just one more property that I felt was not in my budget... However, R.W. was well informed, and knew that the prices in a newer develpoment had been reduced, and ultimately I made the decision to buy the property that R.W. had reccomended... Again keeping my best intrests in mind, even setting aside the importance of his own renumeration... Thank-you R.W. ...
