  • real talk

    Georgetown is right next to Boeing Field, meaning you’re close to air traffic. In many newer homes you can’t hear the traffic from inside, but like much of Seattle, you will be able to hear aircraft activity.

Located just south of SODO and sandwiched between Beacon Hil and West Seattle, Georgetown reminds us of how the Fremont neighborhood used to be. A blend of industrial spaces and a core that’s like its own little world, Georgetown is a destination for foodies and lovers of the arts.

Georgetown is in an incredibly convenient location with direct access to Interstate-5, buses right into Downtown Seattle and South Lake Union, and only 5 minutes to SeaTac International Airport.
