Michael Jurkash


South Austin Homes is built on the unique expertise and experience of Michael Jurkash.

Michael got his real estate license in 2003, and since then he’s been involved in all phases of the business and weathered the market’s ups and downs.

That means he has know-how that will come in handy no matter what questions or challenges come up as you buy or sell a home. He can advise you on getting out of your lease, estimate how much a potential renovation might cost or help you negotiate with builders. No detail goes overlooked on his watch.

Michael holds a bachelor’s degree in economics with a minor in business marketing. And he’s continued his education with hundreds of hours of real estate training and coaching. Michael’s training is invaluable when it comes to pricing your home to sell – or making sure you don’t overpay for a home you’re buying.

Michael, his wife and their young son make their home in South Austin. Through South Austin Homes, he serves a community he knows and loves.

How We Give Back

We’re proud to donate to Big Medium, a nonprofit arts organization that does so much to make Austin unique. Big Medium presents the East Austin Studio Tour and the West Austin Studio Tour (which actually features a lot of stops in our neck of the woods, South Austin). For more than a decade, we’ve loved going on these tours, meeting the artists and buying their work. Both events will make you appreciate the tremendous creativity of Austin, and we recommend that you check them out!
