Rickard Realty Advisors Inc. reviews and appeals both
business and property tax assessments. This has been
our mainstay since the company began in Calgary, Alberta
in 1983. Our mission is, for a professional fee, to
pursue fairness and equity in municipal taxation. After
years of assessment reviews and thousands of appeals
our expertise in western Canada is amongst the best.
Our team of dedicated technical and professional people
are highly experienced in sourcing the causes of the
inaccuracies and presenting the information which results
in favourable amendments being made.
Rickard Realty Advisors Inc. has increasingly been
called upon in the area of dispute resolution for real
estate related matters. At present it represents about
one third of the firm’s services. This is due
in part to the literally thousands of tribunal appearances
associated with property tax assessment reviews but
also to our work in the area of real estate consulting

has been the interest of the firm’s president

for the Alberta Arbitration & Mediation Society.
We can guide a client to arrive at their own solution
(mediation) or if preferred, we can decide the matters
in dispute for you (arbitration).
