Greenlight a Vet

At Pillar Properties we are extremely passionate about showing our gratitude to the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces.

To honor our veterans today we are part of Greenlight A Vet, a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green. Our teams changed the lights in the available homes at each of our properties to shine green as a symbol of appreciation and support.

Veteran's Day

The Meaning of Green:

“Green is the color of hope, renewal and well-being. ‘Greenlight’ is also a term commonly used to activate forward movement. The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition of veterans, and ‘greenlight’ them forward as valued members of our communities.”

We are so happy to be able to show our support for our nation’s veterans and we thank all service men and women for their sacrifices today and every day.

While Sarah raved about the incredible amenity spaces in The Meyden, she is also pretty excited about the location.  The Meyden sits right on the corner of Bellevue Way and Main Street which is almost home for Sarah.  Not only did she pursue her career on the Eastside she was born and raised here as well…she said this is the place to be, right in the heart of a growing community!

Bellevue has limitless options for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Sarah mentioned multiple restaurants and cafes she frequents in Bellevue including Trophy Cupcakes in the Bravern, Purple Wine Bar, and the Japanese restaurant, Ginza. We learned that Sarah is quite adventurous as she told us this is where she tried beef tongue for the first time…and loved it! She said, “Go to Ginza and sit in the booths in the floor, it’s a fun experience!”

Bellevue Square has just about everything to suit your shopping needs. Sarah said there are also great shops and boutiques in the surrounding areas. She mentioned other options for entertainment and recreation in Bellevue, particularly the beautiful Bellevue Park. When it comes to Bellevue, Sarah has the inside scoop!

Sarah lit up when she talked about her family, especially when she talked about her 7-month old son, Marshall. Sarah’s an animal lover and loves her 10-year-old Pekingese “puppy” Roxy. Sarah is a huge football fan, and of course roots for the Seattle Seahawks but said she enjoys watching any football.

A recent accomplishment Sarah is particularly proud of is completing a half marathon. She said, “I am a very goal-oriented person, once I set my mind to something I do everything in my capability to achieve that goal.”

We love that go-getting attitude! Welcome to the team Sarah!
