About Matt Goyer, First Light Guide Author and Real Estate Agent

I love FIrst Light! It is one of my favorite new condo buildings in Seattle. Why?

  • Design forward
  • Attention to detail
  • Only condo with an outdoor rooftop pool

I’ve been following First Light since before it broke ground. I’ve also had the good fortune to be invited to Vancouver, several times, to tour West Bank’s condo buildings there. So I’ve seen their vision, and it is incredible. First Light will not disappoint.
