Austinites have always known that their city is a great place to live. In the past few years, the rest of the world has discovered Austin. The city has emerged as one of the best place to live in the U.S. A growing economy, mild climate, natural beauty and vibrant culture set the stage for an unbeatable lifestyle. Now more than ever, the home market in Austin and Central Texas offers attractive opportunities for sales, leasing and building.

Nobody understands the local Austin real estate market better than our advisors. Owner Michele Turnquist is a fourth generation Austinite with real estate and economic development roots reaching back more than a century. Michele's family helped build the bustling new metropolis beginning in the late 19th Century. Her great-great grandfather served as mayor of Austin in the 1890s.

Michele's husband, Steve Turnquist, serves as the broker and is an integral part of the business. Her daughter, Kathryn Scarborough, is a leading luxury real estate agent in Austin. Supporting our brokerage is a team of more than 80 professional real estate agents who have each acquired knowledge and expertise through years of experience and success in the local real estate industry. Engel & Völkers Austin only hires full time, highly qualified agents with impeccable reputations.

Our brokerage has grown into a premier luxury real estate firm serving Austin and the surrounding area. Michele sits on the board of the worldwide Board of Regents an exclusive network of elite real estate brokers from around the world. Many Turnquist agents are members of Austin's Circle of Excellence, Platinum 50 and the Elite 25, as well as other prominent groups and organizations that recognize real estate excellence.

While our brokerage is known as a luxury real estate agency, Michele stresses to her agents that luxury comes in many forms and interpretations. "Luxury isn't what we sell, it's what we offer," she says. Luxury is about the experience, no matter the price point. Whether you're buying or selling a castle, condo or cottage, all our clients receive service fit for royalty.
