Introducing: The Neighborhoods of Issaquah Highlands
By Aimee Holy, Erik Mehr & Associates and Dahlia Park Resident
We can probably all agree that the Highlands is a special place to live, loaded with cultural diversity and unique neighborhoods. Did you know that the Issaquah Highlands has over 20 neighborhoods, each with its own look and feel? About to enter the final phase of buildout, the Issaquah Highlands remains to be one of the most desirable communities to live in on the Eastside. Issaquah Highlands accommodates the vast housing needs for our growing community. We have housing large enough for extended families, the empty nester and everything in between.
This new monthly column will be devoted to exploring the unique neighborhoods in the Highlands as well as market trends and typical price points for the individual neighborhoods.
Every month I will showcase one of these individual neighborhoods and highlight its unique traits. I will explore the type of housing the neighborhood provides, whether it is single family homes, condos, town homes, apartments or mixed use. Our individual neighborhoods demand distinctive pricing, I will discuss typical price points for that neighborhood, and amenities that is has to offer and the schools that service it.
Additionally, monthly tips pertaining to buying or selling in the Highlands will be provided. For example preparing your home for a sale, staging, home maintenance, and the best time to sell or buy in the Highlands and how to determine a price.
I welcome feedback from residents. Look for me on the (unofficial) Issaquah Highlands Facebook page where I will be asking residents what they love about their neighborhood for use in my article. I will also gladly answer reader questions about the local real estate market or individual neighborhoods and include the answers the next month’s article.
Aimee Holy has lived and worked in the Issaquah Highlands for the past 8 years. Aimee has two sons 7 & 14 and has been married for 22 years.
