Issaquah is a thriving town located just a 20-minute drive southeast from Seattle. Located on the southern shore of Lake Sammamish, the community of Issaquah embraces its past and has maintained its small ‘downtown’ area to be as historic as possible.  The city has a small, historic downtown surrounded by residential, family-oriented neighborhoods. It’s a typical U.S. suburb… But peel back a layer and you’ll find a delightful community bursting with charm. It has a variety of housing options for home buyers. Traditional neighborhood homes, contemporary homes, luxury estates, waterfront homes, and historic craftsman homes are all common in Issaquah.

Washington’s second-fastest-growing suburb is headquarters for the world’s favorite warehouse club and is the kind of place that celebrates when the salmon come home to spawn.Residents are drawn here by outstanding schools, low crime rate and urban amenities quickly fall in love with Issaquah’s other perks, such as its acres of green spaces, walkable neighborhoods, as well as easy access to Seattle, Bellevue and Redmond.

Outdoor enthusiasts have plenty of ground to explore. Issaquah is surrounded by Squak Mountain State Park, Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, Tiger Mountain State Forest, and Lake Sammamish State Park. Residents enjoy boating, wakeboarding, and fishing on Lake Sammamish in the summer, skiing and snowboarding at Snoqualmie Pass in the winter, and year-round hiking and mountain biking on the dozens of Issaquah Alps trails.
