Turnquist-Owned Real Estate Franchise Opens Location at The Oaks in Lakeway; Franchise’s Third Location to Open at Domain Northside in December

The Austin-area Engel & Völkers franchise, owned by top-producing residential real estate advisors Michele and Steve Turnquist, opened its newest office today, at Lakeway at The Oaks. The franchise will open its third Austin-area Engel & Völkers location, at Domain Northside, in mid-December.

“Engel & Völkers Austin has over 35 years of experience bringing luxury service to Austin’s residential real estate market, and we are growing to meet the needs of our residents.  Whether our clients are looking for a penthouse downtown, a private retreat on the lake, or an historic bungalow, we have a full-service shop in their community,” said Michele Turnquist, owner of Engel & Völkers Austin.  “Combined with the access to a global network of potential buyers afforded us through our Engel & Völkers affiliation, our advisors are perfectly positioned to service the greater Austin community,” added Steve Turnquist, co-owner and CFO of Engel & Völkers Austin. 

Engel & Völkers at The Oaks in Lakeway is in the heart of Lakeway’s newest City Center, adjacent to High Five Bowling.  The only real estate tenant within the shopping district, the 3,429-square foot shop is managed by Michele Turnquist and Leslie Tilson.   The shop, which is the primary office for 35 advisors, services the Lake Travis area, including Lakeway, Spicewood, Steiner Ranch, and Bee Cave. 

“The once quiet Lakeway community has transformed into one of Austin’s most appealing epicenters,” said Michele Turnquist. “Combine a stellar school district, reasonable property taxes and room for growth with an elevated restaurant and shopping experience and easy access to downtown, and Lakeway becomes an ideal choice for many house hunters in Austin.”

Engel & Völkers at Rock Rose at Domain Northside will open in mid-December.  The 1,533 square foot shop, managed by Colton Turnquist for residential sales and John Chriss as the leasing manager, will be the only real estate tenant within the shopping and entertainment district.  They will oversee 30 advisors who will office at this location servicing North and Central Austin.  A thriving example of a work/live community and a top destination for Austin residents, the walking community and superior retail experience of Domain Northside makes it an ideal Engel & Völkers location.

“The Engel & Völkers brand brings an experiential retail perspective to real estate with luxury service.  Domain Northside is the most anticipated retail and entertainment destinations in the city within one of the most successful live/work communities in the country, and we look forward to bringing a new level of real estate advice to the community,” said Colton Turnquist, Manager of Residential Sales, Engel & Völkers Austin at Domain Northside.
