Meet the Best Custom Homes Team
Derek Best, Owner/General Contractor
Derek has been actively working in the building industry for almost 18 years, but his family likes to say that his passion for building and creating things has been instilled in him since birth. Throughout his career, Derek has worn many hats, but one thing remained the same — his passion and desire to build high-end, custom homes through his own company.
Best Custom Homes, has been a business in the making for years. Through all of the contacts Derek made working across the United States, to the talented, hard-working subcontractors he has built relationships with in the Front Range; every career choice has led him to build this business in a seamless way, where we have quality tools, people, and trades in our arsenal and are ready for any job that may come our way.
When Derek is not working, he enjoys mountain biking, as well as hiking and camping with his wife and two labs, Oliver and Bently.
Dan Geis, Project Superintendent
Dan comes to Best Custom Homes with 13 years of experience as a project superintendent in the construction industry. Like Derek, he always knew he wanted to build homes, discovering his passion for construction at an early age while working at his family’s construction business.
Dan’s experience in home building ranges from personal starter homes, to production building, to custom log & timber homes across Idaho, New Mexico, and Montana. It is his goal to make the home building process exciting and fun for our homeowners — guiding them through every step of the home building process; from being on-site everyday, to helping make showroom selections.
When Dan is not working, he enjoys water-skiing, snow skiing, and camping with his wife of 14 years and 3 beautiful daughters.
