Issaquah, 15 miles East of Seattle, is nestled at the foot of Tiger Mountain, Squak Mountain, and Cougar Mountain. In many ways it acts as the gateway into the Cascade Mountains. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Washington primarily due to its close proximity to Seattle, Lake Sammamish, and the Cascade Mountains.

Issaquah is a major nesting spot for young, affluent couples/families. Here you'll find plenty of new real estate easily passing the $500,000 mark and stretching well into the millions. Along with the real estate development, Issaquah is seeing a large growth in commercial shopping areas. It is now home to a number of major retail stores.

Issaquah is home to a number of well reknowned employers, some of which include: Costco, REI, Swedish Medical Center, Virginia Mason Medical Center, Boeing, and Siemens Medical Solutions.

Issaquah has a number of attractions to entertain vistors and locals alike. Issaquah is home to a salmon hatchery and holds the internationally award winning Salmon Days Festival each year to celebrate the returning of the salmon.
