Redmond is an awesome suburb of Seattle. Just 20-30 minutes away from everything! Great little town center with awesome, hip, young vibe. Very diverse. Microsoft, Amazon, Nintendo, etc are all big local companies that bring in a lot of jobs and new people. Housing is very competitive and expensive though!
Overall, Redmond is friendly, safe, efficient, and beautiful. I moved from the Midwest and do not plan on returning! My neighbors are kind to others in times of need. I feel safe in the area wherever I go and the commute to Seattle is very easy. The town also has gorgeous scenery and nature locations.
