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 knowledgeable 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 needing a hand in navigating the real estate market whether it be to buy or sell a home, or both.


RW Dickason has been a tremendous help in helping me find the best suited place for me to call home. I had contacted RW 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 accommodating in showing more potential properties that I was interested in…Thankfully, RW always kept my best interests in mind, and recommended that I look at just one more property that I felt was not in my budget…However, RW was well informed, and knew that the prices in a newer development had been reduced, and ultimately I made the decision to buy the property that RW had recommended…Again keeping my best interest in mind, even setting aside the importance of his own renumaration…Thank-you RW…And also thank-you for the very thoughtful house warming gift, much appreciated Cheers


Finding a home in Fort McMurray for the right price is hard enough as it is in today’s times. 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 are first time home buyers and had two days to look for a house. RW listened to what we wanted and worked tirelessly & effeciently to help us find our home. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase.


From our very first meeting with Ria Dickason, to even after our house closing, Ria has displayed due diligence and knowledge, helping us to make the right decision when it came to purchase our first property in Fort 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 our purchase of our home in Ft McMurray. She is thorough and organized, patient and understands all 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 in making the whole process very smooth, comfortable and quite educational! She answered our questions promptly (i.e: text messages, lots of e-mails!) 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 the Ft McMurray area, we would have no hesitation in recommending Ria in representing them, in finding the right property and at the right price.
