I'm a real estate broker who loves living and working in the Seattle/Bellevue area. It is beautiful here and the people are wonderful.
I live in downtown Seattle and my office is in Bellevue. So my life covers both sides of Lake Washington.
It is exciting and fun to be living walking distance from most of Seattle's vibrant restaurants, shops and bars. Typical day could include: Shopping at Westlake, dinner at Palace Kitchen, then off to Amber to meet friends for drinks. Bellevue is also growing with more restaurants everyday. Happy Hour venues are abundant and downtown is easy to get around in.
