Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty® Opens a Second Office in East Bellevue
We are proud to announce that Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty is expanding our footprint and opening another office in Bellevue. Owners Joseph and Randi Brazen signed a long term lease to open the second Bellevue location in East Bellevue at Crossroads shopping center set to open in May of 2014.
Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty was the very first Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate in the state of Washington, impacting in June of 2007. By opening the second office it will allow us to serve more of the East Bellevue communities and the forseeable demand of the next five years. With thirty-four years in the industry, twenty one years in Bellevue, and seven years under the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, Joseph and Randi have established themselves as icons in the local luxury real estate industry.
Location, Location, Location!
Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty’s new East Bellevue location will be in the heart of the Crossroads village, located on 156th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 8th Street in real estate area 530. Crossroads is the second largest shopping plaza in Bellevue, frequented by thousands of visitors a day. Recently purchased and under new progressive ownership, the Crossroads shopping center is in the process of upgrading several of their buildings and spaces as the leases expire. Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty will open it’s doors next to the QFC grocery store, a bustling market in the hub of the village. This new location will provide a reliable neighborhood storefront, serving the residents of East Bellevue, Sammamish, Issaquah, Redmond, and the surrounding areas of all their real estate needs.
Schools are the Hearts and Souls of the Neighborhood
Bellevue is the jewel of the Eastside and has worldwide recognition, with five of the top high schools in the nation, three of which are in the heart of East Bellevue (Interlake, Sammamish, International). In 2013, Newsweek magazine named Interlake, International and Sammamish to it’s list of “America’s Best High Schools.” Also in 2013, Washington Post placed these same three on it’s list of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools.” In that same year, U.S. News & World Report ranked Interlake and International among it’s “Best High Schools.” Families are moving here for these superior schools and our second office will be able to support the demand for East Bellevue.
International is Our Middle Name
International is our middle name, and in order to meet the demand of our international clients in East Bellevue, Brazen Sotheby’s International Realty will utilize our global reach and rely on our highly trained multi-lingual brokers (see Seattle Times article With New Diversity, Bellevue Defies It’s “Blah-Vue” Image by Gene Balk). Currently, we have seven multi-lingual brokers who speak a combined sixteen languages in addition to English. Furthermore, the Sotheby’s International Realty network has more than 14,500 sales associates located in approximately 700 offices in 52 countries and territories worldwide.

Lifestyle, Lifestyle, Lifestyle
Aligning the right property with the right buyer is what we do, but more importantly we match the property with the lifestyle. We look forward to taking full advantage of East Bellevue’s exceptional lifestyle. Prime examples are the two golf courses located in area 530, Glendale Golf Course and Tam O’ Shanter. Our extensive marketing strategy allows us to broadcast these lifestyle properties on our “specialty market” platforms.
Displaying homes on our Golf Properties webpage designated solely for golf lifestyle properties allows us to interconnect golf lovers around the world. Another example of East Bellevue’s pleasurable lifestyle is Bridle Trails and it’s ability to take you out of the city and on to horseback. The homes in this area will fit in perfectly on our Farm and Ranch lifestyle webpage, uniting horse lovers with one of a kind equestrian properties. East Bellevue is consistent with the lifestyle we at Brazen Sotheby’s Realty strive to bring to our clientele.
