Compass Real Estate

If you are looking for a little extra space – then Kirkland is the place to be! With tree lined suburban streets and beautifully maintained parks on the shores of Lake Washington, Kirkland is a fantastic commuter town to both Seattle and Bellevue

 

The city is named after Peter Kirk, an English industrialist who arrived in the 1880’s. His dream of creating a steel manufacturing town never came to be due to a financial crisis in 1893. Instead Kirkland found success in the wool milling and shipbuilding industries.
