    I have lived here my entire life, in fact I live in the same house that I grew up in and have never moved. Brier is a small community with a relaxing vibe, yet larger cities like Seattle are very accessible. I can be downtown in twenty minutes on average.

    We have growing businesses and an expanding local college campus, where I attend school- UW Bothell. This is a great place to live. I love everything about it.

    I really enjoy the neighborhood I live in. We do talk to some of our neighbors and have made a friend out of one of them. People are usually willing to help you out if you need it and this community is incredibly giving. The neighbors watch out for each other and even help the police when they can. It is a city, but we're kind of like our own little small town.
