I grew up in Austin, Texas and attended Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. I graduated from MSU with a degree in Information Technology Services. I moved to Los Angeles, California and lived there for two years in California's fast-paced IT world. I then decided to move back to Austin where my family still lives. I have always loved helping people and being on the go. That is one reason why I chose to get into real estate. It also gives you a chance to meet new and interesting people every day and to change their lives.
One of my many hobbies is to fly. I started learning to fly when I was in high school and have been flying ever since. I received my private pilot's license during one of my summer breaks from college, and now I am working on my multi-engine and instrument rating.
I would love to help you make Austin your home, too. I’ve lived here off and on for 29 years. Our city is amazing! I guarantee I can find you a home that you will love.

I started using J.B. Goodwin over two years ago when I hired Michael Hughes, REALTOR® of JB Goodwin Realtors to assist me find a rental home in Round Rock, TX. Michael is reliable, trustworthy, and is highly knowledgeable about the Round Rock, Cedar Park, and Austin areas. When I contacted Michael to assist me with purchasing my new home, after renting, he went out of his way to ensure he understood the needs of my family as well as well as found homes for within my budget. Micheal worked with me on the weekends and after hours. I recommend the services of Michael Hughes to anyone who is a serious home buyer or renter. – Courtney I. Browne
I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us to find our home in Austin back in the Fall! We love living downtown and the Gables Park Plaza has been a perfect fit for us. As you know, making the move from New York City to Austin was a bit scary for us, but you made our apartment search and the entire process very easy. We really liked all of the buildings that you recommended, and we so appreciated you taking your time with us and prioritizing your search based on what we needed and wanted in our new home. You helped us to find exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t be happier. In addition, we have tried out many of the local spots in Austin that you recommended when we moved and have loved getting to know the city that way. Thank you for being so personable and such a wonderful Realtor Michael. We will definitely be recommending you! – Lara Hollaway
I am sending this email to thank you for helping my children and I find a place to rent in Round Rock. I appreciate your efficiency, proficiency, and hard work as my real estate agent. You did an amazing job applying your knowledge and judgement in numerous ways, including your market research related to scholastic ratings, and your efforts to identify homes within my budget. Furthermore, I certainly appreciate you answering my phone calls on your day off! As a result, I had a superb experience working with you. I will most definitely work with you again when I am ready to purchase a home. – Courtney I. Browne
Michael sold our house in Northwest Austin in May 2012. He held several open houses, invited agents and prospective buyers and sold the house within 7 days of listing it. In addition, the house sold for full asking price which was an appraisal Michael provided that was above what I thought the property would bring. Michael did a great job in selling our house and I would recommend him fully. – Ronnie Hughes
We had a wonderful experience with Michael. He was very attentive to our needs of what we were looking for. He always took his time with showing us properties, always had a smile on his face, if he didn't know the answer to something he would take action to find the answer right away. He answered calls back in a very timely manner. 100% customer service! We would highly recommend him to anyone! Michael definetly was a pleasure to work with. – Barbara & Lee Schaefer
Michael has all the necessary characteristics of a successful Realtor: professionalism, honesty, patience and client commitment. He is a good listener (not a manipulator), and he is determined to close a fair deal. As out-of-state buyers, we were on a tight time budget. Together with Michael, we worked hard to find the right place - it seems like over 21 homes in a couple of days. The one we chose is a good fit.. Close to friends and family, good neighbors, and access to all necessary amenities. Another success story! Thanks, Michael and JBGoodwin Realtors. We highly recommend you. – Paul & Shirley Lindquist
