About the owner: My name is Mike and I first moved to Austin in 1998 to attend the University of Texas. After finishing law school, my wife and I moved into this beautiful house and started our family and our careers. My brother John and I operate the Rubin Law Firm, a civil litigation practice, which offices on 6th Street & Congress Avenue in downtown Austin. I have loved Austin since the first time I visited the city and we never plan on leaving.
Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
We selected this house because of its unique proximity to anything and everything worth seeing and doing in this great city. Any local will tell you that 78704, and particularly Barton Hills, is the jewel of Austin.
