Bellevue Washington - "The Eastside"

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Properties Seattle

If you are thinking about moving to The Seattle Area, chances are you'll have to choose between Seattle and The Eastside.  If you are coming to work at Microsoft, the large campus is in Redmond WA and growing into Bellevue, though some Microsoft employees are in Seattle and some in Issaquah.

Above is the City of Bellevue taken from across Lake Washington just over the I-90 Bridge in Mt. Baker - Leschi in Seattle.  If you see mountains to the East as in this photo, they will be The Cascades.  If you see mountains to the West behind Seattle, they will will be the Olympics.

Mt. Rainier is part of the Cascade Range.  For me the most notable feature of the Olympics is "The Brothers" shown below.  Besides knowing which direction you are facing, you can tell you are looking toward the Cascades if you see Mt. Rainier and The Olympics if you see the Brothers.

As I'm driving up 85th toward Central from Bellevue/Redmond toward my home in Kirkland, I can often see The Brothers quite clearly just driving home.  Spectacular sights can be everyday events when you live in the Seattle Area...and these sights can rejuvenate and fill your soul.

The photo was taken as part of an mls package I bought from Harley of Harley's Eye.  I highly recommend him.

I love his condo with space needle view shot.  Check out the  real estate gallery on his site.  Amazing and artistic presentations.

Seattle Condo With a View of the Space Needle

A little pricier than the cheapest you can get in real estate photography, $450 or so for a 15 shot mls package, but well worth the price difference.

When I was a kid walking to school in the Winter on a clear day, there was a spot where I could see the Cascades in all their glory.  It always made me happy!  Thanks for sharing.
