Kent, WA - “Bringing the World Home”

Kent, Washington was originally known as Titusville by the westerners who settled there.  The City of Kent was renamed after the County of Kent, a major hops producing region of England, because of its settler’s own discovery of hops production as a major source of income.  On May 28th, 1890 the largely agricultural, hops growing town of Kent was the second city to be incorporated into King County just after Seattle.  The turn of the century marked a long tradition of dairy farming in the region.  After World War II Kent’s centrally located real estate was discovered anew and the population began to grow rapidly.  Kent’s diverse landscape, natural resources and proximity to major port areas has always played an important role in its success as a highly productive area.

Moving to Kent, Washington

Why should I move to Kent?

Kent features some of the region’s most affordable real estate which provides opportunity for businesses and individuals alike.  Since its annexation into King County, Kent has attracted thousands of businesses to its agriculturally diverse and centralized location. 

In addition to Boeing’s interest in Kent Real Estate, many other companies have found value in Kent’s natural and economic resources.  Oberto Sausage Company, Redline Bicycles and REI, for example, all have their headquarters in Kent.  If that shout, “Northwest!” then I don’t know what does.  More than 8,000 firms call Kent home.  Kent’s prime real estate provides attractive and efficient access for product distribution as well as a highly skilled and centrally located labor force.  With over 78,000 jobs and a diverse economic base, Kent has had very steady and strong increases over the past decade in gross business income, taxable sales, total employment and population.  Totaling over $8 billion, Kent has the highest gross business income among its peer cities in King County, exceeding second-ranked Renton by more than $2.5 billion.  It is predicted that future job growth will be approximately 34% within the next 10 years. 

The city of Kent is easily commutable by Eastside, Seattle, South End and Tacoma workers.  Interstate 5 connects Kent with Seattle, just 18 miles North and Tacoma just 18 miles South.  Highway 167 makes a commute into Renton, or Auburn a breeze and Highway 18 allows for easy access to Snoqualmie Pass and Eastern Washington.  Kent Station allows for commuters to utilize the Seattle / Tacoma Metroplex’s fantastic light rail system.  Sea-Tac airport is a short shuttle ride away. 

The housing in Kent is widely varied from affordable to luxury, single family to condominiums, vintage to new, and everything in between.  The large amounts of developable land means that Kent is a desirable location for upcoming neighborhoods and marketplaces.  In comparison to the surrounding Seattle and Tacoma Metropolitan areas, the Kent housing market is very affordable and families looking to escape the skyrocketing Seattle and Eastside real estate prices would be hard pressed to find a more convenient, diversified and friendly destination.

What sort of fun things are there to do in Kent?

Kent’s recreation and entertainment activities vary widely from strolling through the Farmer’s Market to gearing up for a Seattle Thunderbird’s Match at Showare Center.  Did I forget to mention that Kent is the home of the T-birds? 

Kent's extensive park system includes 73 parks, miniparks, playfields, skateparks, greenbelts, and other related facilities. These parks range in size from as little as 4,300 square feet to over 160 acres.  Kent was voted Sports Illustrated’s Sportstown of the year for Washington in 2003.  So, needless to say, Kent has an enormous selection of sports leagues and events that go on throughout the year.

Aside from outdoor and sports activities, Kent has several shopping centers and Westfield Southcenter Shopping Mall is nearby.  Not to mention Kent’s proximity to downtown Seattle and Tacoma’s award winning museums, cuisine, night life and cultural centers.

There are so many incredible nearby destinations.  Snoqualmie Pass, Alpental, as well as Crystal Mountain Ski and Recreation Area are all a quick drive.  Mount Rainier National Park is close by which features hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.  If it’s water you’re looking for, Lake Washington is a quick drive North.  The Green River flows through the city of Kent and the views from the Green River Gorge are breathtaking.  Kent is nestled in the heart of the Puget Sound and is just a short drive from Northwest waterfront beaches and salty air.    

What about Kent Schools and Education?

Kent’s schools are nationally recognized.  The Kent School District includes four high schools, seven middle schools, twenty eight elementary schools and two academies.
