Murray and Lana Unick

"Ryan and his team were very informative in the sale of the house in Sherwood park. The pre-sales meeting and the market evaluation were very professional. It was a pleasure to meet someone who champions honesty and integrity in a competitive market like real estate! Thank you for all your efficient service."

George Hartwell, December 2013

It was great to meet Ryan! He was informative with how we should price our condo as well sent us feedback twice a week from people who viewed our condo. When we got an offer, we just told Ryan what we wanted and he did all the work to get it! It was a hassle free experience!

Randy & Bea Augustine, September 2015

"What a positive experience! We would not hesitate to refer Ryan to anyone needing real estate services. We received personal and professional service from the Ryan Dutka Real Estate team. We casually mentioned to Ryan that we were thinking of selling our home and asked if he would be interested in giving us an evaluation. Ryan waited until we were ready to list and did not pressure us in any way. The listing process was handled well above our expectations. Ryan recognized the value of our property and it certainly showed in his listing price and the advertising. Our house sold within days. thanks again Ryan!"

Allan & Audrey Andruchow, November 2014

"What can we say but Wow! and Thank you. Right from the start Ryan and his team were prompt and professional. We had received an evaluation from another realtor a few months before talking to Ryan and we are very grateful we decided against listing with them. Ryan got us $17,000 more from our house than the other companies suggested list price. Ryan's services are top notch and netted us many showings and a successful offer just two weeks after listing. We would not hesitate to recommend Ryan and his team to anyone needing the services of a realtor."

Dan and Sianne Martin

Jeremy Repchuk & Jennifer Encila

"Allison was amazing! As first time home buyers, we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into when we walked into her office.  Allison walked us through the process, figured out what we were looking for in a home, and helped us find our perfect home our first day of searching. Allison educated us on the process of putting in an offer, and put 110% into the negotiations, helping us get the best value for our new home. Everything that Allison did was to ensure that we got the best home at the best price. If we ever need to purchase another home, you can be sure that we will be calling upon her again. Thanks a million Allison!"

Dale Sullivan & Melissa Martens, September 2012

"We can't thank you enough for all your hard work. Our new home is everything we hoped it would be, and the price you negotiated was great! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and will definitely use your services for our next real estate transaction."

Jane & John Doe

"Best favour a friend of ours could do for us - referred us to the " Dutka Team":
1st of all - Realistic Pricing. Provided correct comparatives so we knew he wasn't trying to " buy our listing" as proved our experience with another quote we received.
2nd - Fantastic Marketing. Outstanding picture presentation in listing, printed material (flyer, in home fact sheet).
3rd - Excellent Support Staff. Always there when we needed them - with no errors or omissions.
4th - Excellent negotiation skills - we believe we received the best price possible for our listing.
Overall- Extremely Professional Team - You know we will not hesitate to refer anyone to Ryan."

Daryl and Joan Kyba

"Over the years we have moved a lot. In doing so we have used the services of a few realtors but there have been none better than Ryan's team. Dealing with Ryan and his team was truly a great experience. Ryan really knows his stuff. He completely understands the market areas and therefore knew how to price our home correctly. Ryan and his team were very articulate and responsive with all our questions and concerns during the sale process. We completely appreciated the time and effort Ryan and his team put in while selling our home. Ryan is a leader of his industry and we would without hesitation use the Ryan Dutka team again to either buy or sell a property. Saying 'well done' to Ryan and his team may not really express our total satisfaction of dealing with Ryan Dutka."

Cornelis & Darlene Notenboom, June 2014

"We have dealt with the Ryan Dutka Real Estate Team in the past, and again with our most recent property sale, the service has been exceptional. Ryan gave us good advice on how to improve and prepare the property for showing. He also understands the market and was able to properly price the property for sale. We especially appreciate the ongoing frequent updates we received about each of the property showings. Specific feedback about what potential buyers are saying was very helpful. We highly recommend Ryan Dutka and his team to our family and friends. Thanks for a stress free experience and a great job once again."

Roger and Shirley Minard

"We have used Ryan several times and would recommend him to family and friends. He is very professional and keeps you well informed as to what is happening. His staff is excellent to work with. Thanks for a job well done!"

Iris Sumka, September 2012

"Curtis's customer focus was outstanding from our first contact through to possession. We were faced with a quick turnaround due to a transfer as well as a move from B.C. Curtis's demeanour helped to make this a lot less stressful then it could have been. We found what we needed - in the right location and only 1 month later we are settling in nicely. Thanks Curtis & Team!"

 

Patti and Cam Schreiber

“Thank you so much for selling my home. It was a more difficult property to sell. I think the most important thing you did was tell me the truth about the price. I trusted you and we got the outcome we wanted. I will be calling the Ryan Dutka Team to purchase in the near future!”

Duane, August 2015

“We appreciate this was rather emotional transaction for all of us, but we appreciate your professional and compassionate way this sale was handled and completed. Please remember you have an invitation to Lake Wabamun this summer. Thank You!”

Tom & Joyce Rogge, July 2015

"Your website was the ONLY resource we found that could meet our needs as we searched for a home. The polygon search tool allowed us to narrow our hunt to the most relevant neighborhoods, and your 'Communities' content was the only truly honest material we could find. Thank you SO much."

"It was a great opportunity to work with the Ryan Dutka Real Estate Team. His team had ample knowledge and qualifications to help us sell our home as well as performing a Comparative Market Analysis in a timely manner. The team provided excellent service assisting us to determine selling price and walked us through all necessary steps to get our home sold. It was a great experience. Thank you very much."

Hugh Duong & Thi Nguyen, July 2014

"Awesome experience from the first call to Ryan, to the last day Ryan and his team were always steps ahead of the game and most pleasant to work with. The experience selling my home was completely stress free and successful thanks to All of you! Thanks again for everything."

 

Jodie Leipert

"Ryan and his team were amazing with the selling and purchase of our home. They were always available to meet our needs, kept us optimistic and ensured their promise of selling within the time period stated. We could not have asked for any better quality service. You have made our home selling and purchasing process very accommodating and efficient. Thank you!"

Shelina Merali-Tate, September 2014

"We want to advise you of the outstanding service we received from Curtis Roy. We were relocating from Saskatchewan to Edmonton and were on a very tight time frame. Peter contacted the Ryan Dutka Team and then dealt with Curtis. After a discussion on our house requirements, he immediately sent us potential listings. Peter was in Edmonton to start the house hunting and he did his utmost to not just show and sell a home, but to find the home which was the right fit for us. He went out of his way to assist us with the purchase of our new home including talking to the neighbours in the area. Curtis kept in close contact with us and offered his services to find our any information we required. Some of the information we wanted further clarification on is listed below.

  • Engineer certificatesourced contractor and engineering company
  • Durabuilt Windows warranty
  • Garbage pick up
  • How often the train runs
  • Septic tank information
  • He got the plumbing issue fixed by the ownertoilet tank which was leaking, boiler system which was leaking and window sill heaved

As you are aware, we had issues on possession day as there were no keys to the house. Again, Curtis ensured this was dealt with as quickly as possible. We could not think of a better realtor to use and would highly recommend Curtis to any future home buyers."

Marlene Hoffmann and Peter Berbeka

"Thank you so much for the handling of the sale of my mom's home. You and your team were excellent! Always responded promptly to our questions and sold the house in the coldest month of the year. Also thank you for your patience in dealing with the offers and paperwork while I was out of the country. Our family was very impressed and everyone said they will recommend you guys to everyone."

Ryan Lamb, August 2015

"Earlier this year we made the decision to list our house with the Ryan Dutka Real Estate Team based on their reputation and the recommendation of others. Throughout the complete process, we were very happy with the personal service we received from Ryan. From the initial evaluation to the offer acceptance and finally closing, we were completely satisfied with Ryan and his team. We appreciated the constant communication from Ryan and his team while our house was listed. They explained all steps of the process with us and the entire transaction went very smoothly. We would not hesitate to refer Ryan and his team to anyone else thinking of buying or selling a home."

We would recommend Ryan and his team to anyone and would certainly use his services again if we needed to."

Emily and Allyson Donald

"I spoke to Curtis Roy over the phone and never even met him, I just inquired about one of Ryan's listings, about 12 months before buying this house. He took my information and what I was looking for.The "second" this ideal property was listed he didn't hesitate to call. I met with Curtis on a Friday night at 10:30 pm and wrote before 11:00 pm, his "go getter " professionalism closed my deal within 24 hours of the property being listed! I look forward to many more transactions with Curtis in the future and will not hesitate to direct business his way. Thank you Curtis Roy and the Ryan Dutka Real estate Team, I cannot express how happy I am with my new investment."

Brian and Margaret Wood

"Attention to detail is important to me and it can make all the difference when selling a property. The Ryan Dutka team is all about attention to detail, using professional photography services and brochure printing, retaining agents with high decorum, ethics and motivation, and having office support which keep all parties informed - accurately and timely. I was not selling a high end property, but during my association with the Ryan Dutka Team I felt as thought I received the services, and the care, and the attention as if it were. It was apparent I was not just another listing...I felt my property was proudly presented from start to end. When purchase offers came in, my agent continually strove for obtaining the fair price; I very much appreciate and admire this skill in knowing my property's resell value and holding out for it. I cannot imagine better care than what I received from the Ryan Dutka Team... they are my kind of people."

David Strayer

"We met Ryan when he did a market evaluation on our home. After giving us a comprehensive analysis on our home, we choose to utilize the Ryan Dutka Team to sell our home. Getting top dollar and negotiating with our best interests foremost were hallmarks of our experience with Ryan. All the members of his team were a delight to work with, including the contacts (lawyer and photographer) that made the sale happen. Thanks again, from the Deemters."

Derek Deemter, July 2014

"We had a great time working with Curtis when finding our second home. He was always available and went out of his way to work around our busy schedules. We would definitely recommend Curtis to our family and friends. Thank you so much for helping us find our new home."

Erwin & Rozelle Aguanta

"I recently sold a condo with the Ryan Dutka team. Both Ryan Dutka and Jim Erickson were cordial, professional, and strategic in helping me with the sale. I appreciated timely feedback, their transparency and advice from beginning to end. Those attributes were consistently demonstrated by Ryan and Jim which resulted in a positive experience. As such, I would certainly recommend Ryan Dutka and Jim Erickson as your choice of realtor for your real estate adventure."

Collin Elkow, July 2014

“Thank you Ryan! You and your team are always awesome to work with! Your team was a huge help when we bought our home, so it only made sense to return and sell it with you.

Kayla & Mynor Reyes, October 2012

"Dear Ryan, thank you for all your efforts in selling my house. Your advice was good and your negotiations proved that you are looking out for the best interest of the seller (recall I received 99% of list price). In addition, I was pleasantly surprised when my house sold within one and a half weeks of listing! I was getting ready to wait for about two months (based on industry average), but the way you advertised my house caught someone's eye well enough to sell my place quickly. Thanks again Ryan!"

George Pelzer, September 7,2012

“What a positive experience! We would not hesitate to refer Ryan to anyone needing real estate services. We received personal and professional service from the Ryan Dutka Real Estate team.

Ryan waited until we were ready to list and did not pressure us in any way. The listing process was handled well above our expectations. Ryan recognized the value of our property and it certainly showed in his listing price and the advertising. Our house sold within days. Thanks again Ryan!”

"It was a pleasure dealing with the Ryan Dutka team. This experience literally "moved me" in less than one month from the listing date. Twice a week I was contacted by Michelle who would give me an update on my property and provide feedback from the potential buyers who had visited my property. So it was great to be kept in the loop as to the comments people were leaving on my property. Ryan and Allison both were very professional and very pleasant to deal with. Thank you!"

Karen Kutyn, August 2012

"At my son's recommendation I asked Ryan to handle the sale of my condo. Ryan helped my son sell his condo several years ago. In both cases Ryan and his staff were fair, friendly and professional. My thanks to Ryan and his staff for making my move to be so much smoother."
