Shopping and Services in Magnolia

A wonderful and very desirable Seattle neighborhood, Magnolia is the second largest Seattle neighborhood by area, and according to “Wikipedia” has been part of the city since 1891.  It is near all the excitement and resources of downtown yet enjoys the status of being a quiet village, set apart from the urban bustle.  With the central shopping district of Magnolia Village offering a satisfying variety of services and shops, a really great community center, Fisherman’s Terminal on Salmon Bay, and Discovery Park, a 534 acre city park on Puget Sound, on a daily basis residents find everything they might want close to home, yet the whole of urban Seattle within a short drive.

In the firm belief that the shops and businesses in an area say something about the unique character of the place, I have gathered together a directory of Magnolia Neighborhood businesses.  Not only will it most likely inspire you to want to go on a shopping trip, but it should expand and deepen your sense of what Magnolia is like, and what it feels like to live there.   And for those new to the neighborhood, hope this will be of use in getting settled!

Before we get started I should just say that the other very accessible neighborhoods for shopping are Queen Anne to the east (just across 15th Ave W), Ballard to the north (just up 15th Ave W across the Ballard Bridge)   Just east of Ballard are Wallingford and Fremont, more great shops and restaurants, and then slightly north you will find Phinney Ridge/Greenwood, and Green Lake, each with it’s own special character and shops.  And of course heading south on 15th Ave W you will soon reach Belltown, Pike Place Market and the downtown stores, services and boutiques. Happy browsing!

About Edy Kizaki

Edy's perfectionism and dedication result in attention to detail during every stage of your search and purchase experience.

Edy and her family came to the area seven years ago and fell in love with it. The size, natural beauty, people, culture and educational resources all make it an exceptional place to live, work, and play. Edy brings her experience in business, management and negotiation to her work in real estate. But it is her love of people and her joy in being involved with your important moments of change and decision in the process of life that make her dedicated and unfailing in the pursuit of your goals.

As a realtor and most recently the team leader at SeattlePowerSearch.com, the Seattle branch of eXp Realty, Edy has been involved in over 150 real estate transactions in the past five years, involving homes from Vashon Island to Duvall, Snoqualmie Ridge to Bellingham! What a great and inspiring way to learn about this amazing place. Of course, her GPS has been invaluable to the process...now Edy feels like she's "from" Seattle, but with the added ability to understand what it means to relocate here and which knowledge is first tier, which is better to follow after. She works extensively with relocation clients in Seattle and on the Eastside, including from Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, University of Washington, and their subsidiaries. She lives in Richmond Beach, part of Shoreline five minutes north of the Seattle 'border', and loves Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Ballard, Wallingford, Green Lake, Ravenna, and the areas along the west side of Lake Washington, as well as Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, and Edmonds. On the Eastside she has spent most time in Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Woodinville, Sammamish and Issaquah. She has also worked extensively on luxury condos in Belltown and Downtown, and enjoys comparing views with the best of them!

Edy's involvement in real estate began in the 1980's when she was part of a Project Development Team for a real estate company in San Francisco for two years. After having worked on several major San Francisco and Lake Tahoe projects, she became most interested in buying and leasing of properties, including sales of business opportunities. She was also the official company photographer. There followed a period of work in finance, but an interest in travel led her to Japan, where she lived and worked teaching in university for 12 years. In addition she founded and ran her own large private school and formed Currents, a group that produced art exhibitions in Japan, America, and Australia, and arranged tours of New York and on the West Coast.

Eventually Edy returned to Monterey, California, where she taught Japanese, designed instruction, was a project manager for multimedia products, a product developer for early childhood educational products, and helped manage a five-star resort hotel, all while completing a masters in Multimedia and Instructional Design. Upon relocating to the Pacific Northwest with her family, she pursued her real estate license and is now deeply involved in helping her clients search for the perfect property in the local real estate market. When not at work, Edy practices Aikido and takes advantage of the local boating, picnicking and hiking riches with her family and friends. Oh, yes, and the great restaurants!
