Bellevue

Welcome to Bellevue

A thriving city with an abundance of green spaces, tech companies, and outstanding schools
 
Located about 10 miles east of Seattle — across Interstate 90 — Bellevue is a bustling, trendy, and sophisticated place to reside. Home to a population of 144,403, the city is surrounded by Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. Unlike other nearby locales, Bellevue comprises distinct regions with their own unique vibe. From scenic and wooded to energetic and urban, this city has it all.
 
One exceptional aspect of living in Bellevue is the various types of neighborhoods and available housing styles. Prospective buyers looking to relocate to a quiet suburb should explore the northern and southern portions of the city. Alternatively, in the center of Bellevue, enjoy a thriving urban environment that features convenient public transportation, excellent walkability, a lively arts and culture scene, and luxurious condos.
