Dick Best

 Broker, GRI

When Dick Best and his wife relocated to the Skagit Valley back in 1975, it was the quintessential “small town America” with no fast food restaurants or four-lane roads. Since then, the community has grown, evolving in many ways while still maintaining its small town sensibilities. That is what Dick has always loved about the Valley; being able to live and work in a community that has embraced him and his family. 


Over the course of his career, Dick spent many years in the hospitality industry. He owned the well-known Galley Restaurant for 23 years before deciding to try real estate in 1994. He joined Brown McMillen in 1997 where he has served his neighbors for nearly the same amount of time he was a restaurant owner. His clients rely on Dick not only for his knowledge of this Valley and the climate of the market, but also for his honesty and ability to communicate news, both good and bad, in a way they can understand.


Now semi-retired, he still sells real estate but now in Desert Aire, Washington, a golfing and recreational community near the Columbia River. Most of his clients today are second home buyers, but his first love and where he gets his greatest satisfaction is working with first time buyers. At 76 years old, he continues to go above and beyond for his clients, still marching through transactions with the motto, “Dick SELLS Best!”


With his wife of 50 years by his side, Dick is a family man who loves spending time with his four grandchildren in his spare time. He also loves getting in 18 holes whenever possible.
