Assessment Appeals

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.

Dispute Resolution - Arbitration & Mediation

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 / litigation support. The most compelling force however has been the interest of the firm’s president in resolving disputes without the need to go to Court. Arbitrations and mediations are alternative ways for people with a dispute to solve it without going to court. We are experienced professionals with specialized training in resolving disputes. We abide by the codes of conduct 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).
