Redmond Homes for Sale | Redmond Real Estate

redmond town clockIt is easy to understand why you are considering Redmond for a home purchase.  With the high quality of schools, a healthy economic base, large parks and open space for all types of activities, many shopping and dining choices, and the close proximity to Seattle or the Cascades, Redmond is awesome.  It is the seventh most populous city in King County but much of it feels quite rural.  Redmond boasts 31 developed and 14 undeveloped parks, with 31 miles of trails.  The variety in parks include Idylwoood Park on Lake Sammamish, a wildlife preserve known as the Redmond Watershed, and a farm with equestrian facilities at Farrel-McWhirter Park.  The city is well known as a center of technology and the location for a number of nationally known high-tech and biomedical companies like Microsoft, Nintendo, and AT&T.   The largest shopping area is the Redmond Town Center which offers dozens of shops, restaurants, three movie theaters, special events, and live performances. Redmond is part of the Lake Washington School District which has students score on standardized tests in the state’s top 10 percent.  The curriculum used has been praised in several national education publications for its comprehensive approach to student-centered learning, and over 100 districts around the country are adapting it for their own use.
