It also possesses the most waterfront footage of any area in King County, making it ideal for those looking to be surrounded by the natural splendor of the Pacific Northwest. Nicole and her team possess strong experience and I look forward to welcoming Vashon Island Sotheby’s International Realty to the network.”
