Life in Bellevue is characterized by casually-dressed professionals who value luxury, comfort, and exceptional experiences. Bellevue has established itself as a thriving hub for business, namely in tech (it’s the second largest business center in Washington). Home to Expedia and T-Mobile, as well as satellite offices for Google, Salesforce, Microsoft, and many more, the neighborhood is clean, well kept, and offers many opportunities for residents to both work and play.
This mid-sized city routinely wins awards for its safety ratings and quality of life. The majority of Bellevue’s residents are highly-educated, married professionals working in management, business, science and arts roles. And it’s no wonder top talent is attracted to this neighborhood -- Bellevue offers only the best to its residents. For those with children, there are many top schools in this area: several Montessori schools, Bellevue College, and the Bellevue School District.
For those who value a quick commute, the 520 Bridge, the largest floating bridge in the world, offers easy access to Seattle and the University of Washington, and the East Link Rail Line Extension, coming soon in 2023, will connect Seattle to Mercer Island to Redmond. It will be the world’s first railway to operate on a floating bridge.
It didn’t seem possible before, but Bellevue really does have the best of everything. What makes Bellevue special is the ease of living: its opportunity-rich business district coupled with unlimited recreational options put everything you could want easily within reach. Wherever you go, you’ll find unrivaled service, thoughtful details, and a “wow” factor you won’t find anywhere else.
