Brian Colin


As a former teacher, Brian is the quintessential communicator. Brian understands that listening is the most important quality he brings to the table in his career as a real estate agent. Brian’s “clients first” philosophy has served him well, resulting in property sales and purchases that leave buyers and sellers feeling satisfied with the process. 
Brian is an avid hiker, and in his free time can be found roaming the many trails in the nearby North Cascades National Park and Sawtooth Wilderness areas. He also loves mountain biking on the valley’s many single-track trails and fat biking on snow during the winter, which is rapidly becoming one of the Methow Valley’s most popular seasonal sports. “If you love the outdoors, there is no better place than the Methow Valley,” Brian says. “It’s one of the truly special places on this earth.”

Brian has a broad range of real estate expertise, and knows that clients receive the best service from a local brokerage: one that is owned by members of the community and operated according to principles that put individuals at the forefront of real estate conversations, searches, and transactions. Since 2007, Brian has been committed to this approach to real estate, and in 2018 when he opened Mountain to River Realty with partner Ina Clark, he put local, personalized customer service as a foundation of his business model. Whether you are buying or selling a small lot, a cozy cabin, a horse property, a local business, or a majestic mountain retreat, Brian will invest himself in helping you achieve your end goal.
