The thriving business district makes it easy to pop in for last minute gifts, find your favorite workout studio, and you'll have many grocery store options at your fingertips.

Views that KILL!

Okay so most hoods have some area that has great views. North Admiral, Magnolia, Madrona, even Columbia City, North Beacon and Mt. Baker have their spots. But to me, when Queen Anne has a breathtaking view both day and night. My favorite views come from Queen Anne and boy do you have choices. You can be looking east toward Lake Union, Gasworks, and Capitol Hill. Sure, great view. You can be looking West toward the Sound and Olympics. Also a spectacular view. Then there is my personal favorite. The view south toward Downtown with the sound to west. No better view in Seattle than those in Queen Anne...

Historic Old Homes and glistening new homes.

You're always in for a little treat when you're walking the nicely shaded tree-lined streets. Every house is different and very well kept. Stately colonials and charming tudors are then thrown together with amazing moderns both contemporary and midcentury. A very polished but at heart folksy hood with the usual Seattle quirks at perhaps a lesser volume.

Real Talk

As pretty as Queen Anne is, it has one dark secret. You see, this little startup from nothing company decided it's new global headquarters would completely surround poor little Queen Anne. What's a neighborhood to do? So the truth is it can be a challenge getting to Queen Anne at certain times of days... Denny, Mercer or Aurora are usually a complete disaster about the time you are leaving or coming home from work. But, if you work at said startup-from-nothing company or any other number of employers near this urban hood then you will LOVE your commute.

Matt's fireside market chat

Queen Anne has done very well for its savvy residents. Median home prices in 2015 were at $750,000 and now in 2018 are floating around $1,090,000. That is a 31.2% increase. Recently, single family home values have slowed to single digit appreciation. This is likely due to the already high median price coupled with traffic concerns. Still, condo values are increasing in Queen Anne dramatically with the last twelve months seeing a 14% increase. From 2015 to 2018 condos in Queen Anne have gone up 42%. This is likely caused because single family houses and townhouses have reached prices once thought to be impossible therefore causing many buyers to flood toward condo life. Queen Anne and many urban hoods in Seattle are becoming more accustom to choosing condos and we see that trend continuing. In either case, single family or condo, you will rest assured knowing your investment is quite safe in Queen Anne. A premier blue chip hood in Seattle.
