Location, location, location! I have grown the Seattle and have lived many neighborhoods including Kirkland, Bellevue, Issaquah, Seattle, Mill Creek and Snohomish. I enjoy all the Northwest has offer from boating Lake Washington the San Juan Islands, camping with friends, and sampling the finest our local breweries and wineries have offer!

The housing market in the Puget Sound continues fend off national trends and remains relatively strong. This is due, in part, strong local employment that serves diverse industries including world class aerospace, software, retail, ecommerce, as well as the food and timber markets. This combination helps insulate our local economy from the highs and lows that many other areas are experiencing. Additionally, the Pacific Northwest offers unparalleled natural attractions, which continue garner national recognition.

Altogether, this creates strong demand our region and certainly the greater Seattle . The bottom line is that Seattle is a wonderful place to live, work and play!
