Area Cities

REDMOND: Redmond has a little of everything from very reasonably priced homes to luxurious homes with gorgeous mountain views and everything in between.

The City of Redmond is undergoing a major renovation. A bypass is being built to reduce downtown traffic. This has and will spur significant renovation. Home Depot and a Wal-Mart Superstore are both moving in. Restaurants are moving in with some good ones already there. Retailers include: Fred Meyer, Starbucks, Walgreens, etc. In this case, what you see is not what you get…the planned changes for the city are quite significant.
