Many realtors have a specialty, but Ben Dickamore’s is unique: equestrian-friendly real estate. Ben has lived around horses his entire life and discovered this niche market while he was working as a builder and land developer. Then, as a realtor, he found that many people buying and selling horse properties don’t always have the information they need. “There are so many things you need to know, including water rights, large animal rights, transferability of those rights, amenities, arenas, and so much more,” he explains.
Because of Ben’s background with horses and construction, it was a natural fit to focus his real estate business on horse properties throughout Utah. He quickly became known for his unmatched work ethic and innovative approach to each individual property, showcasing their unique features to best serve his clients and exceed their expectations. He currently has several exceptional listings, including these two of note:
Horse Lover’s Dream Home in Kamas—“I try to create a life that you don’t need a vacation from,” explains homeowner Matthew Pineda. This 23-acre property is truly a rare find. It features a beautiful 7,378 square foot home with seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two partial bathrooms. This spectacular two-story abode also features a vast main-level space, elegant finishes, and spectacular views.
Moving on to the outdoor amenities, you will find the custom-built wood barn with ten classic European stalls, heated automatic waterers, and enclosed tack room and hay storage. The barn includes a luxury apartment, which is perfect for a live-in caretaker. Other exceptional features include:
