About Jamie Dyer

Jamie and I have been in the business of renting monthly real estate for the past seven years in our hometown of Estevan, Sask. Canada. We found it was time to branch out and find a great vacation spot with plenty of sun. We are hoping to escape the cold winters as much as we can with our wonderful family. Jamie is now a licenced broker owner of Royal Lepage Dream Realty in Estevan.

Jamie Dyer purchased this house in 2010

Why Jamie Dyer chose Anthem at Merrill Ranch

We choose this great home because we instantly feel in love with its beauty and stunning backyard. We enjoy waking up and looking out our bedroom window at the waterfall trickling into the pool. It is wonderful to walk out your patio door and have the sun glistening as you drink your morning coffee.

What makes this house unique

The backyard is stunning whether having a morning coffee, afternoon swim, or late night drink by the fire. Anthem's community has so many amenities that you can take advantage of while at the property. The Poston Butte Golf Club is one of the finest in the valley.

This home is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home is great. It was clean and well maintained. The owners quickly dealt with any issues and communicated well all along. Of all the places we have rented over the years this property was the most well equipped ever! Kitchen was well stocked with anything/everything we needed. Plenty of everything outside the kitchen also. Loved our stay and would stay again. Highly recommend.

Beautiful house and pool area in a great spot

  • 5 of 5

I must firstly apologise for taking a year to post my review. Now this house is perfect, in fact we were going to book it again but we were too slow. The fittings and furnishings are top notch. Everything looks new and the whole place is immaculate. The outside areas deffinatly have the wow factor and are hard to beat. The owners were first class and very responsive to our needs. One thing to take on board if renting here is the location. We knew approximately where it was so no surprises there, however it my be too far out for some. So please check.

A beautiful house in a very quiet location , a great get away in the sun.
