Michele Turnquist


Michele Turnquist is the founder and owner of Turnquist Partners Realtors, Inc., now known as Engel & Völkers Austin. She is also a top-producing Realtor with more than 35 years of experience in luxury residential real estate in the Austin area, including Lake Austin, Westlake Hills, Lakeway and surrounding communities. Not only is she a member of E&V Private Office but is also a founding member of the President Advisory Council for Brokerage Leadership North America.


A fourth generation Austinite, Michele's local real estate roots run deep. Her family has helped build Austin for more than 100 years, beginning withher great-great grandfather, John McDonald. As mayor of Austin in the 1890s, he oversaw the construction of the Colorado River's first dam, which created the reservoir and spurred Austin's original development boom. The former Lake McDonald (now Lake Austin) bore his name. Carrying on his legacy, Michele has developed and marketed Lake Austin waterfront property since the mid-1980s. In fact, she has sold more lakefront homes in Austin than any other real estate agent.


Michele sits on the board of the Elite 25 Austin an organization of top luxury Realtors. An active community member, Michele is involved in the Austin Children's Shelter, the Austin chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Heart Association.
