Located in the heart of what is known as Seattle's Eastside, Redmond is an award winning city in a pristine setting. Redmond and neighboring Bellevue serve as the Eastside's commercial and retail centers as well as the hub for the always-expanding business climate that attracts traditional commerce and entrepreneurs of all types.
