Conveniently located between Seattle and Tacoma, Kent is the third largest city in King County and the second oldest. Despite its size and age, Kent maintains a close-knit community and boasts every modern amenity. Kent is home to the Showare Center, a multi-use events center that hosts concerts and other live events and is the home of the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team, the Tacoma Stars of the Major Arena Soccer League, and the Seattle Mist of the Legends Football league. Touring shows like the Harlem Globetrotters and Disney on Ice also make stops at the Showare Center. In the heart of downtown, Kent Station is an open-air center for shopping, dining, relaxing and seeing movies. Kent Station also holds events throughout the year like Halloween trick or treating, Easter egg hunts, summer concerts, and pictures with Santa during the holidays. Kent residents love to get outdoors, taking in the views of Mt. Rainier from one of our many parks, biking along the valley trails, and bird watching at the Green River Natural Resources Area. You can find unique and historic homes here as well as newly built ones. If you’re looking for a friendly neighborhood, Kent has you covered. If you’d like to learn more about Kent, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.

Maple Valley

Maple Valley has consistently been recognized as one of the country’s safest cities, but the natural beauty of this area and the community spirit are what really make us stand out. And that’s why we’re one of Washington State’s fastest growing cities. Education is important to many Maple Valley residents. The city is served by the Tahoma School district, which is well respected throughout Washington State and the U.S. Tahoma High School rates among the top 5% nationwide. This coveted school district helps keep Maple Valley property values elevated, which benefits even residents who don’t have students in their households. Community events in Maple Valley include a fishing derby each April, Make a Difference day where neighbors help neighbors each October, and a holiday tree lighting each December. Maple Valley Days, held the second weekend of June every year features a parade, classic car show, rides, a fun run and live entertainment. Housing in Maple Valley comes in all forms, from townhomes and condos to farmhouses surrounded by horses or alpacas, and every variety in between. We have neighborhoods of tree-lined streets, and we have homes on many acres that provide more privacy. No matter what type of home you live in though, access to community parks and trails make it easy to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. Lake Wilderness park is a favorite of residents. It’s a beautiful and scenic setting, with views of Mt. Rainier and access to the lake. You can rent a boat or launch your own or go for a swim. Lake Wilderness Park is also home to a golf course, if hitting the greens is more your style. If you’d like to learn more about Maple Valley, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
