Vashon is a census-designated place in King County, Washington, United States. It covers an island alternately called Vashon Island or Vashon-Maury Island, the largest island in Puget Sound south of Admiralty Inlet. The population was 10,624 at the 2010 census and the size is 37 square miles, slightly larger than Manhattan. There are no bridges to connect the island with the mainland, a big factor contributing to the island's relative isolation and rural character.
There is evidence of human activity on Vashon Island dating back to the last 10-12,000 years. Some of the Native peoples known to have lived on Vashon Island were the Marpole from about 7,000 years ago, the Salish about 1,000 years ago and the S'Homamish starting about 500 years ago. The island was named on May 28, 1792, by the explorer George Vancouver after his friend James Vashon of the Royal Navy.

"Burger Professionals has done an excellent job in marketing and selling our house. As an out of state owner, we had to do everything by phone, fax, email, or Fed-Ex. They had to coordinate with my property manager, as well as a non-compliant rental tenant. Though this house was average, and was in rental history for six years, I am convinced that I got a fair market value for my home, and that it was done professionally and quickly. The whole team assisted with the processing, overcoming some difficulties concerning showing the house, complying with local laws for septic, lawsuits for siding, moisture intrusion, etc., and coordinating final repairs. Their explanations of the process, all over the phone or by e-mail, were excellent. Their photo of the home for ads was superb! "
