Five Reasons To Live on The Eastside of Seattle


The Eastside of Seattle is an amazing place to live. With many years of experience working in the Eastside, I have become very well educated about the different areas in this region and love share this knowledge with my clients. Here are five reasons why you should call the Eastside home:

1. World Class Cuisine on the Eastside

The Eastside of Seattle has some of the region’s best restaurants and a culinary scene that will leave any foodie in awe. Whether you a planning enjoying the modern atmosphere of Volterra in Kirkland, the fresh menu at SeaStar Restaurant & Raw Bar, or the phenomenal sushi at Musashi’s in Bellevue, the Eastside has a diverse selection of world class dining.

2. Property Investment Opportunities

The Seattle housing market is currently the hottest in the country, with no signs of slowing down.

Vancouver, BC has recently seen a rise in taxes and laws for foreign investment properties. In 2016, the BC government imposed a 15-percent foreign buyer tax on non-resident property purchases within the City of Vancouver and by 2017 the city will impose tax and penalties for owners of vacant houses. This has led to an influx of foreign investment moving south to the comparable city-scape of Seattle. Properties in Vancouver are still much more expensive than their counterparts in Seattle, which means that now is your perfect time to find your dream home or investment property.

Whether you are interested in a luxurious Bellevue Condo, a stunning waterfront property in Kirkland/Juanita, or an estate in Medina, I can assist you in finding the perfect fit.
