The Mount Baker neighborhood is composed of upscale homes, waterfront parks, and views of Lake Washington, the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, and Mount Baker, the area’s namesake.
Although the community was once reserved for wealthy landowners, today, the neighborhood is home to a variety of residents attracted to Mount Baker’s charm and abundance of amenities. Each year, spectators make their way to the neighborhood for Seafair, an annual multi-week festival featuring over 30 events!
For the remainder of the year, the area provides a quiet atmosphere and a relaxing retreat from city life. Many residents enjoy biking or running along Lake Washington Boulevard, as well as swimming, boating, and kayaking along the waterfront.
Mount Baker offers the ideal balance of all Seattle has to offer!

Seward Park

Located in south Seattle and incorporating a small peninsula within Lake Washington, the Seward Park neighborhood is known for its expansive green space. The area’s scenic lakefront location and luxury waterfront homes make Seward Park the most expensive neighborhood in southern Seattle.
Modest residential homes and other types of housing can be found further from the lake. The area is bordered by Lake Washington to the north and east, and Rainier Beach to the west and south. Outdoor activities are seemingly endless in Seward Park, with a 2.5-mile loop around the neighborhood’s park, which is great for walkers and joggers to get in their daily steps.
The community also offers outstanding local schools from preschool through high school grade levels. Educational opportunities are also available within the community, including the Seward Park Audubon Center. The center’s mission is to educate and take efforts to protect and conserve local wildlife and the environment.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to call Bellevue one of the best places to live in Washington. Bellevue offers its +140,000 residents the perfect balance of suburban convenience and charm with the perks and energy of urban living.
The area is bustling with restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. Many young professionals and growing families choose to call Bellevue home for several reasons. USA Today and CNN Money have ranked the neighborhood among their top places to live and launch a business in the U.S.
Locals can take advantage of an array of well-manicured parks, The Gold Club at Newcastle, which offers breath-taking views of Seattle and Lake Washington, and a selection of high-end shopping. Additionally, Bellevue public schools have received some of the highest educational rankings in the country.
In Bellevue, you’re conveniently located near the heart of the city, yet feel far away in a scenic oasis.

I enjoy the creative and intimate process of listing and selling homes as well as assisting in grinding out value for my buyers. I believe that a 'modern' real estate agent is no longer a sales person but a fiduciary that should be interested only in client advocacy and mistake prevention while being entirely results driven.
