Madison Park

Madison Park is a neighborhood in east central Seattle, Washington, named after the city park at the foot of E. Madison Street on the Lake Washington shore. It is bounded on the east by Lake Washington; on the south by the intersection of Lake Washington Boulevard E. and 39th Avenue E., beyond which is Denny-Blaine; on the west by Lake Washington Boulevard E.; and on the north by Union Bay. Washington Park and the private Broadmoor community and golf course are subunits within Madison Park. The neighborhood’s main thoroughfares are E. Madison Street (northeast- and southwest-bound) and McGilvra Boulevard E. (north- and southbound). Madison Park in the early 1900s was a popular destination for people who lived in Downtown Seattle. Though very close to the city center, it was seen as a summer getaway, with a cable car leading over the hills to the lake, park, swimming beach and ferries to destinations across Lake Washington. Today Madison Park is an upscale residential community boasting a number of restaurants, The Attic Alehouse, McGilvra’s, Madison Park Bakery, Cactus (Mexican and Southwestern food), Independent Pizza, and Bing’s (American fare, family-friendly). It also has a number of shops, including Madison Hardware, Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, Cookin, Red Wagon Toys, The Original Children’s Shop (provides kids haircuts), Madison Park Bakery, and Bert’s Red Apple Grocery.

Chris Sudore’s Madison Park Real Estate Testimonials:

“Chris and his team took great care of me during the sale of my house in Madison Park. They provide great customer service – highlighted by open and immediate communications, as well as sophisticated tracking systems to understand the current real estate market. I’ll use Chris for all of my future real estate transaction needs. -Jared M, Madison Park

“Chris Sudore sold our Madison Park house at full price in two days, then followed through to ensure a timely closing. What more could one ask? Chris was knowledgeable, responsive and adaptable. We highly recommend him. -Joe Q, Madison Park

“I listed my Madison Park house for sale with Chris and couldn’t have been happier. I interviewed several realtors before choosing Chris, and throughout the selling process my choice was continually affirmed. I listed my house while the market was still a bit soft. Chris took an active and proactive approach to selling my home, and it paid off. Due to the market we had to drop the price, but even that was done in a way that optimized our chances of finding a buyer and getting maximal return for my home. He is an absolute professional. He’s prompt with replies, does what he says he’s going to do, and knows his business. He’s also amazingly thorough and persistent. He followed up on possible leads over and over again, and I’m confident it made the difference. In fact, on several occasions during the sale it almost fell through but because Chris was on top of it, he saved the sale. I’m 100% sure that if I hadn’t been working with Chris, I wouldn’t have a sale completed. Ask around, interview agents, but I’m confident you’ll pick Chris as I did. He knows Madison and Washington Park, the market overall, and how to get the job done. I’m now looking for a home to buy and only wish he were here in California where I now live—I wouldn’t work with anyone else! – Margaret N, Madison Park
