Brown’s Point andDash Pointare two small communities that complement one another with their relaxed charm. Along with beautiful sound views and million dollar water front homes, both of these communities also offer affordable housing. It is the perfect location, 15 minutes to downtownTacoma, 20 minutes toSeattle-TacomaInternational Airport and 30-35 minutes to downtownSeattle! I have lived inSeattleand inTacomaand I would look across the Puget Sound at this sunny point of land with its quaint Lighthouse and finally said I want to live there. Now my Sound views are facing west and we enjoy watching the sailboat regattas during the summer and the ships all year round. Local festivities and history go back 100's of years, giving this community a culture that still exists.Browns Pointis hard to beat if you are working in the South King County or North Pierce county areas or commute nationally or internationally. Thus many pilots live inBrowns Point which is far enough south not to get the plane noise.
Although they border each other, officially they reside in different counties. Brown’s Point belongs to Pierce County, whereasDash Pointis technically considered to be in King County. However, they are both amazing communities to live in and offer astonishing views of beautiful Puget Sound within a comfortable community atmosphere. If you have little ones, not only do the areas offer plenty to do outside close by, but Brown’s Point Elementary is one ofTacoma’s top rated elementary schools.

Halloween is almost here and there is an abundance of fun activities
"My husband and I are (literally as I type this) driving across the country to move into our beautiful home that Michelle worked so hard to get us into. We found out that we were being relocated from D.C. to the PNW for work back in March and were desperately trying to figure out how we could possibly buy a house from the other side of the country. We got hooked up with Michelle and I sincerely believe we could NEVER have done this without her. She took my husband on a 48hr tour to see dozens of houses, fought fiercely and professionally for us to get the home of our dreams- and we DID!! Now... we closed back in June, and since then she had continued to keep an eye on our house and has gone WAAAAY above and beyond what we ever expected from our realtor. "Thank you" will never quite seem to be enough to say for all she's done for us. She is an incredibly genuine, honest person (and now friend!) and we will recommend her to any friends of ours that find their way to the PNW!"
