Seattle, Washington - Welcome to the Emerald City

Welcome to Seattle—the home of Microsoft, the Space Needle, Starbucks Coffee, Nordstrom, and the Seahawks Football team. Residents of Seattle experience a quality of life that is unparalleled; the air is clean, the streets are safe, and Seattle's residential real estate economy is strong. Seattle is home to an eclectic mix of interests and sights, from outdoor to cultural, offering something for everyone.

Seattle was founded with the arrival of the Denny party on the shores of West Seattle over 150 years ago. The city itself was incorporated in 1856. Now comprising over 140 miles between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, Seattle is home to an ethnically and socially diverse group of people.

Nestled between the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, Seattleites enjoy a plethora of outdoor activity opportunities. However, Seattle is also a great cultural haven. Complete with its own ballet, opera, symphony, as well as numerous playhouses, live music venues, art museums, and some of the world’s best independent bookstores make Seattle a significant force in the arts world.

Seattle plays host to several professional sports teams. The NBA Supersonics and WNBA Storm basketball teams’ loyal fans see the hoopsters play at Key Arena. The Seahawks football team’s gridiron resides in Qwest Field. The Mariners wow opponents and fans at Safeco Field. Sports buffs also enjoy University of Washington Husky games. The NCAA Division I school plays a number of athletic events throughout the year.

The lifestyle in Seattle would be considered a luxury to residents of many other cities. Yes, the rumors about the rainfall are true, but the forests and gardens are all the more beautiful because of it. And anyone who has ever experienced it agrees: there are few cities that can compare to Seattle on a sunny day. The Seattle area is rare in that it offers such diversity in landscape, activities, employment, and homes—making it the thoroughly enjoyable place almost 4 million people call “home.”
