Washington | Where Technology Drives Luxury
Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty was recently highlighted in the Sotheby’s International Realty spotlight on the State of Washington for its insight on the current tech boom in Seattle and Bellevue. According to a recent article published in the Wall Street Journal, “The technology boom is pushing its way north up the Pacific Coast, boosting real-estate prices, sparking neighborhood squabbles and creating new demand for luxury homes asking $1.5 million or more. [Seattle’s] high-end real-estate market is on the rise, as executives relocate from pricier locales like Silicon Valley.”
As the competitiion and cost of living increase in areas such as San Francisco, LA and New York many are finding the Puget Sound region to be a milder more approahable place to live with more bang for your buck… at least for now. The Wall Street Journal article discusses what makes Seattle such a good place to move and why tech execs are making the migration up north. Sotheby’s International Realty reached out to owner and broker Joseph Brazen and asked him his experience with this recent phenomenon.
“With companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, Zillow, Tableau, Concur, and many more basing their operations out of the Seattle area, the talent level and opportunity for technology professionals is abundant,” says Joseph Brazen, owner and designated broker of Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty. “Along with these giants, are what we like to call sleeping giants, the start-ups in industries such as gaming, cloud computing, biotech and more that scatter Seattle and Bellevue.”
