Real Estate, A Tradition In The Kirk Family

While the name has changed a few times over the years, the family lineage of Kirk & Cobb can be traced back to 1896. For 50 years between 1896 and 1946, William Stevenson established this company’s roots in Topeka. In 1945, William’s nephew Bob Kirk came to work for him after returning from his tour of duty in France. In 1947, after William’s death, Bob and two of his brothers purchased the company from their widowed aunt, marking the introduction of the Kirk name to the business. Bob went on to set industry precedence during his tenure and widely earned the respect of his colleagues. It was in 1967 that Bob’s son, Steve Kirk, partnered with him and later took on the roles of acting broker and sole owner. Steve’s daughter, Liesel Kirk-Fink, continued the family tradition when she became a sales associate in 2002. To this day, Steve Kirk holds true to the values and philosophies established by the two generations before him. It is under Steve’s thoughtful guidance that the associates and staff at Kirk & Cobb serve our customers every day.
