Ria Farmer

Residential - Sales Associate

Ria began her real estate career with Weigand.  She comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, and Weigand personifies the entrepreneurial spirit that Ria was looking for in a company.  Ria has established herself in the Wichita market through her hard work and dedication, and through an absolute 100% commitment to honest, no-nonsense business dealings.  Ria believes that if her clients aren’t served, then nothing else matters.  She dedicates herself to her client’s goals and interests, and every action will be measured against those.  Ria was born in Kansas City, grew up in Springfield, Missouri, holds a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in Economics and has 20+ years of business experience.  After school, Ria moved to Dallas, Texas, where she worked...

Our first interaction with Ria was through a re-location for work, we were in a rush to find a place to call home while at the same time being stretched between two cities and different schedules; not an ideal situation. Ria was understanding, compassionate and more than flexible to fit our needs and time constraints. After several very full weekends of looking at too many homes, we found the one we call home. Since our purchase we have leaned on Ria’s expertise several times, she has without fail delivered each time, even when there was absolutely no benefit to her. Patience and understanding of our situation at each instance has earned Ria champions of her service as well as customers for life.

Moving from one state to another is stressful – Ria started working with us well before our move and gave us a number of options to consider, she was dedicated to OUR needs. We decided on buying a home and Ria gave it her all to find the perfect neighborhood with all the amenities we were looking for in our home. The top perk was a maintenance man that took care of some of the changes we wanted and after three years he is still helping us and is part of our family. Thank you Ria for your dedication and continued friendship. Anyone wanting to find their dream home and meeting THEIR needs call someone who really cares, Ria.

Ria helped us sell our home on October 2014 after accepting a job out of state. She was always honest in her opinions with our questions about selling our house and was a great asset to have on our side during the offer negotiation process. She was always on time and available when we needed her. She was wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her.

Ria was such a pleasure to work with as we sold our first home, that we knew exactly who to call when we were ready to move again. She was easy to work with and listened to our needs. She always had our best interest in mind and we got exactly what we wanted out of the price. Ria is thorough and professional. If I were in the market to buy or sell again, I would definitely call her up!

When I was trying to sell my house it was not a very easy process. There were a few issues that needed to be addressed and my experience dealing with everything was pretty lacking. A friend recommended Ria Farmer for a realtor and I am so happy that they did. Ria was incredibly helpful during the entire home selling process. She was quick to respond whenever I had any questions or concerns and always made me feel like my home was a priority to her. She was very kind and helpful throughout the entire process. One of my favorite things about Ria was how personable she was. Every way she helped was tailored to my specific situation. I also appreciated how straightforward and candid she was with me about anything that I needed to alter or change to make my home more appealing to potential buyers. I went through experiences with other realtors in the past and I can easily say that Ria is in a different league. Ria worked extremely hard to get my house sold and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Moving and purchasing a home is such a trying and extremely taxing part of life and without the help of our realtor, Ria Farmer, the process would have been much more difficult. During the months of searching for that perfect home, Ria was confident, reassuring, and more than we could have asked for. She gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision with our home buying process. Ria made suggestions and was extremely invested in the best interest of our family. Being new to the area, she helped provide us with all the information possible and when she couldn’t answer our questions she would get back to us with the best possible answer. She was also very resourceful with knowing who would give us the best and most honest inspections for our home choices. And she continues to be a resource for our family, even after being in our home. I would call Ria in a heart beat if and when we decide to move! Thank you, Ria!

Stace and I had never stepped foot in Kansas before the company relocated us to Wichita in 2012. Daunting to say the least despite 3 other relocations with the company. It never gets easier when trying to navigate a new area. We requested Ria as our realtor based on a recommendation of another employee who had used her in their relocation. A strength of Ria's is her ability to give an overview of the many desirable areas in which to settle without bias and with our specific "must haves" and "hope fors" in mind. She quickly had us feeling less overwhelmed. Every aspect of the process, she exceeded our expectations from recommendations for lenders, timely arrangements for inspectors and pointed out things that would impact our negotiations for settling on a home. She made the closing process efficient and timely. Her skills and expertise even went beyond the closing. She had a wealth of referrals for competent remodelers when we decided to make some upgrades to our home. Confidence in a realtors knowledge of the area as well as the current market is essential and we definitely had that with Ria. So much so that when the company relocated us once again a year later she was an exceptional sellers agent as well. When moving, the hardest part is changing doctors, dentists, stylists etc etc and we definitely added realtors to that list after our experience with Ria. We became friends in that process and we were lucky enough to welcome their daughter to the state of Oregon as she started her freshman year in college this year. So a professional relationship that began in Wichita became an on going personal relationship.

My husband and I have worked with Ria Farmer in four real estate transactions. She helped us sell my mother's home, Richard's mother's home, and another house, and to purchase one home. Ria is an outstanding communicator and kept us up to date on what needed to be done when. She gave us good advice on how to present our homes in the best possible manner. She listened to our "wish list" as we were looking to purchase a new home and showed us appropriate homes. I have no hesitation in giving Ria my utmost vote of confidence. An added benefit is that she has a great sense of humor!

As first-time home buyers, my wife and I are so thankful we had an expert like Ria on our side. She walked us through each step, answered all of our crazy questions and represented us with professionalism. We really felt like we had an advantage with Ria working for us.

Relocation is full of challenges but fortunately for my wife and I we had Ria to guide us through the process. We were partnered with a local knowledge resource who not only assisted us in key decisions related to schools and neighborhoods but also directed us through complicated negotiations. The fixer-upper we selected required a number of delicate negotiations and Ria managed each one with patience and precision. Obstacles were always challenged and creative alternatives brought forward for reconcile. It was a pleasure working with a Realtor who will dig-in when the work gets complicated.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ria as my realtor both as a buyer and as a seller. From the early stages of looking for a house as a buyer and in valuation/comps for pricing as a seller all the way though the final stage of closing, Ria was readily available, extremely knowledgeable, thorough, highly personable and professional. She was always quick to respond with any needs/questions as they arose. I felt completely at ease knowing that my realtor was doing everything necessary to make the process as smooth as possible and I felt confident that I was buying and selling at the right price for the market. I can’t imagine a better experience. Should the need for a realtor arise again in the future, I have Ria on speed dial and I can without reservation recommend her to all my friends and family.
