About Coldstream

We’d like to thank all our clients and friends of the firm who attended our Holiday Party on December 5th, between the music, food, drinks and great people attending, a good time was had by all.  We would particularly like to thank those Coldstream team members who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make the event seamless for those who attended.

Picture of Santa's helpers December 2013In the season for giving, Coldstream adopted two families through the auspices of Bellevue Lifespring for the holidays.  Through the generosity of our team members, we not only filled the families’ wish lists, but we were able to provide each family with a gift card for groceries and one for other necessities.  We are thankful for our own good fortune, and felt a lot of goodwill and joy when the gifts were taken to Lifespring.READ MORE

But although you can’t make luck happen, you can — and should — make the most of it when it does.READ MORE

Northwest division.  Both were celebrating their 40 Under 40 Awards at the Hollywood Schoolhouse in  Woodinville.  They became fast friends, confidants. They bonded over things they both liked to do —  hiking, fishing and skiing. Today, that bond has only grown. Their families barbecue  together. They seek each other’s advice for business opportunities. They are on each other’s “personal board of directors,” or informal advisory network.
