Mindful of the Past ~ Focused on the Future... Since the first settlers made their way into the Methow Valley in the 1890’s, our Valley has seen its fair share of change. Yet in many important ways it remains the same.

ensure our pristine environment and unique lifestyle will remain unspoiled for the settlers that come after us. While no one can predict the future, it certainly seems possible that the Methow Valley will continue to retain the character that has attracted settlers since the early 1900’s.

Miners and trappers have given way to fishing guides and vacationers. The Model T’s that made the arduous journey up the Valley carrying homesteaders, have been replaced by SUV’s carrying families on the way to endless recreation.

For a mountain, a century is hardly the blink of an eye. But for us, we take great pride in what the Methow Valley has become in the last century, as well as what it can grow to be.

Sure, some things have changed. And while we’d venture to guess that most settlers never owned a fleece, they did share the same love of this Valley that binds old timers and newcomers to this magnificent place. Nestled within the Cascade Mountains, lies our Valley, unlike any other. More than 85% of the Methow Valley is permanently protected as National Forest lands, National Parks, BLM and conservation holding. The Valley’s unparalleled beauty and the magnitude of its natural resources set it apart from all other communities within the Northwest. Lifestyle activities throughout the year include skiing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, trout fishing, river rafting, and rare wildlife viewing. The Methow Valley offers a worldrenowned Summer Music Festival, art galleries, fantastic Farmer’s Market, and a community trail system which includes over 200 km of trails meandering through the Valley’s natural beauty – a peaceful and uncrowded experience. The scenic corridors that greeted early pioneers survive today thanks largely to thoughtful planning and conservation efforts during the past 35 years. Furthermore, restrictive land use planning and community-minded conservation practices

From a real estate standpoint the Methow Valley is unique. The Valley’s market is the only one in the region – and one of very few in the State – that has seen its real estate values shaped over the years more by conservation practices, than by development and promotion. For the past 20 years, Windermere Real Estate has been helping the 21st Century settlers discover a truly remarkable lifestyle in the shadow of the Cascades. While the supply of real estate in the Methow Valley becomes scarcer with each passing year, the corresponding interest in calling the Methow “home” inherently continues to rise. This growing demand in the real estate market is further enhanced by Okanogan County’s tax-friendly climate, casual Western ambiance and superb year-round recreational lifestyle. Yearto-date sales in the year 2010 are up considerably over last year. For this Spring and Summer season, all market indicators point to continued recovery. And thanks to our loyal customers, clients and friends, Windermere Real Estate is the perennial leader within our marketplace. We look forward to sharing all of our Valley insights and knowledge with you.
