Anita was fantastic to work with. As a first time home buyer, Anita's knowledge and attention to detail helped me navigate through the process of buying my first home. Her professionalism, insight, and hard work was very much appreciated, and made the whole experience painless and fun. Carla Unwin bought her first house in July 2008!
Working with Anita Rivest was a worthwhile investment. Anita helped us find our dream home and sell our previous home in 3 months! She called us several times a week to keep us updated on showings and give us feedback from potential buyers. She is a very hard worker, knows her stuff, and genuinely cared that we were happy with our decisions. Anyone would be lucky to have Anita representing them in today’s real estate market!
"We thought that buying our first home would be a daunting and difficult task. With Anita's help, however, the experience was simple and straightforward. Anita is completely devoted to her clients; we never felt like we were harassing her and she would always ease our concerns. Her list of professional and reliable contacts made our transition to home-owners a breeze. We can't speak highly enough of Anita as a realtor but more importantly, she is a wonderful person looking to make things better for other people."

Anita was a great sales lady. Very professional, extremely helpful and very easy to talk to. The most important thing about a real estate person is being able to reach him/her anytime of day or night. This is what separates Anita from the rest, very easy to get a hold of and if she was busy it was a matter of minutes not hours for her to get back to us. I Highly recommended Anita Rivest.
To begin, being first time homebuyers we had done a lot of research on not just the market here in Edmonton, but the pros and cons of buying a detached single dwelling vs a condo/duplex. We were pretty thorough while weighing the benefits of living outside the city vs downtown, but what we could not research, or really be sure of, was landing a crack real estate agent. After a few chance encounters with pushy obnoxious agents, a friend had mentioned Anita Rivest (Century 21) so we called her on a whim to explain our situation, and within the first few minutes we were sold. It wasn’t just that Anita was professional, or very knowledgeable; she took the time to ask what was important to us and explained how she could meet those needs. With my wife travelling back to Halifax during part of our house hunting period, Anita met with me on weekends, taking time out of her schedule to be ruthlessly meticulous when researching listings. She never tried to sell us or push us to make any kind of decisions. She was extremely patient throughout the several months we looked, and, always cheerful. Certain that she would find us “The One,” Anita slogged through many listings until we found our beautiful home. It was definitely a moment of clarity when we walked into the home, without a doubt it was everything we were looking for. When my wife and I decided that we wanted to make an offer, Anita was so quick to make contact and settle the sale for us. She also recommended an expert House Inspector who was so thorough that we were confident that nothing would be missed. Throughout the entire professional relationship of client and agent, we developed (and maintain) a friendship that lays upon the trust we placed in her, and her expert ability to deliver the best services we could have hoped for. Anita made the entire experience such a joy, and when we hope to buy another (investment property) we know we will choose Anita. You should too!!
