Some of the best things about the Belltown neighborhood in Seattle is that it is close enough to the hustle and bustle of downtown and still part of the big city without feeling smothered. Here you’ll find one-of-a kind boutiques, thrift shops, restaurants, bars and more. The neighborhood is home to iconic Cinerama movie theater where you can enjoy chocolate popcorn while watching blockbuster movies on the (really) big screen. Just down the street you find two “escape room” experiences and both the SeattleCenter and downtown are just a short bus ride away, albeit in different directions.
Take an urban hike along the shores of Elliott Bay and walk through the Olympic Sculpture Park where you’ll walk past and through some larger-than-life works of art by Northwest artists.
The neighborhood has a high Walk Score and transit score of 98 and a bike score that isn’t too shabby either with 77. Area Vibes gives the neighborhood a livability score of 73 including an A+ for amenities, A- for housing, B+ for employment, B for weather and a B- for education. The neighborhood scored lower for crime (C-) and cost of living (F).

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
