Seattle Neighborhoods I Specialize In

About Mercer Island, WA

This island community is home to many affluent folks. They have the benefit of being located equidistant between Seattle and the other east side suburbs, making commuting a breeze. And, because it’s an island, property is a hot commodity and suburban sprawl is impossible. While the term ‘island time’ might be a little extreme here, things do seem to slow down a little on Mercer Island. There is a decent population of retired folks here, and in general things are quieter and less stressed-out-feeling. Residents here enjoy their large homes—many with views—as well as the safe and tight-knit atmosphere.  Just over five miles long and two miles wide, Mercer Island is a true island community consisting of high quality residential areas, preserved parks and open space, as well as miles of developed shoreline. 

About Magnolia, WA

Because it’s on a peninsula, Magnolia has a secluded feel. Looking at the neighborhood from outside, you might think there isn’t much more there than houses and a marina. Wrong! The area around McGraw Street and 34th Avenue W is a little pocket of activity, with a Walk Score rivaling that of Fremont or Greenlake. A glance at the neighborhood’s blog shows that there’s always something going on here, be it a farmer’s market, the yearly SummerFest celebration, a free nature walk at Discovery Park, or a spur-of-the-moment community outreach event. Not to be left out is Fisherman’s Terminal, located right on Salmon Bay near the 15th Street Bridge. Here, you can walk around on the docks and admire the real-life fishing boats, then stop in at the market to buy the seafood caught that very day. Though not as famous as the Pike Place Market, rumor has it that this is an even better way to experience the local fishing culture.

About West Seattle, WA

Since the early days in Seattle, Madison Park has been a destination for anyone who wants to enjoy a picturesque and chic place to spend the day. Today, the whole neighborhood has the same reputation.  Within decades of the city’s foundation, Madison Park was created and drew vacationers with piers and a promenade, a boathouse, live entertainment, and even Seattle’s first baseball diamond. Once Madison Avenue was constructed and people could easily make their way to the area, houses were built like mad; everyone wanted their own personal view of Lake Washington. Today, a charming business district and the still-popular Madison Park beach are the pride of the neighborhood.

 

About Madison Park, WA

Since the early days in Seattle, Madison Park has been a destination for anyone who wants to enjoy a picturesque and chic place to spend the day. Today, the whole neighborhood has the same reputation.  Within decades of the city’s foundation, Madison Park was created and drew vacationers with piers and a promenade, a boathouse, live entertainment, and even Seattle’s first baseball diamond. Once Madison Avenue was constructed and people could easily make their way to the area, houses were built like mad; everyone wanted their own personal view of Lake Washington. Today, a charming business district and the still-popular Madison Park beach are the pride of the neighborhood.

About Capitol Hill, WA

In its early days, the neighborhood was certainly ritzy enough to be the political center of the state. Huge houses were built, which led to the nickname of “Millionaires’ Row” in one area. After World War II, a great number of apartment buildings were constructed, changing the demographics. These two cultures are still reflected today. Capitol Hill is funky and fast-paced, with an endless number of cool blocks to explore and, unfortunately, a limited number of parking spaces. During the day, markets, boutiques, and salons are a big draw. Nightlife is hopping with clubs, bars, and music venues, and you’ll often find coffee shops that moonlight as cocktail lounges. Individuality and fashion statements are encouraged, and there always seems to be some sort of block party or community forum to encourage residents and visitors to mix and mingle.

About Belltown, WA

High-rise condos, swanky boutiques, and a trendy nightlife have helped Belltown earn its reputation as one of the hippest neighborhoods in Seattle.Belltown has the second highest Walk Score in the city at 97 out of 100. What this means is: sell your car. You won’t be needing it. Everything you could conceivably ask for is available within the borders of this small neighborhood. And while the mere mention of the place strikes up my inner techno music (uhnn-tss, uhnn-tss), there is far more to Belltown than its nightclub scene. Even during the day, it’s the place to go if you want the newest, the shiniest, the trendiest.
