My job as a Realtor would be difficult without a car, but I do walk as much as I can. For example, I park in one place downtown and take public transportation or walk as far as a mile if I have multiple meetings and errands.

I've noticed that you have posted this question about several different Seattle neighborhoods, which leads me to think you're trying to decide what neighborhood would be right for you. As a Realtor and a 20 year Seattle resident, I can help you with neighborhoods.
