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.

Excellent place to stay in Florence!! LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully designed and decorated. From the time we walked through the front door into the open floor plan with awesome views of the upscale pool area we felt at home. I felt like a master chef while cooking in the kitchen with the gas stove, double ovens, and spacious bar for preparing meals and desserts. (It is equipped with most anything you need to be at home in the kitchen)

The master bedroom is dreamy. I loved the openness and view of the pool. Again, a perfect design.

The high ceilings throughout the house make it feel large and roomy. The two extra bedrooms are on the opposite side from the master which provides privacy.

I have fond memories of morning coffee by the pool. We spent many hours outdoors enjoying the pool with the slide. The backyard feels very private since there are many trees along the backside (which also doesn't have houses built right behind it. )

All in all, this house was a perfect choice for our family and we look forward to another stay there!!

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.

We spent over 2 weeks here and will definitely come back. The house is so well decorated and cared for. Relaxing on the patio that over looks the pool is a perfect way to start and end your day! The owners respond immediately when contacted. I highly recommend staying here.
