Home to globally renowned public and private research institutions and prestigious universities, Seattle has drawn a deepening pool of talent from aerospace, retail and creative, to information and clean technology sectors. While the central business district continues to flourish, anchored by many Fortune 500 companies, the submarkets of Redmond and Bellevue are booming. Due in part to large corporations like Microsoft, and now Amazon setting the trend of submarket migration, reputable companies are following suit to take advantage of the preferred lifestyle factors that exist just across Lake Washington. A large beneficiary of California out-migration, these Seattle submarkets flaunt convenient access to three national parks and acclaimed hiking, biking, rafting, fishing and other outdoor recreation opportunities.
