Born and raised in West Texas, Malita found her passion for real estate at a very young age. The summer before entering junior high school she helped her mother find their home as her mother worked long hours in the medical field. This tenacious house hunting spirit continued throughout college when she coordinated every lease with landlords and her roommates. Just out of college she found herself helping her best friend find her first home when her friend could not find time during work hours to meet with the REALTOR.
Now in Austin, Malita helps her clients realize that real estate is more than buying and selling homes, it’s a means to accomplish their dreams and create the life they’ve always wanted. Real estate is a way for you to unlock your opportunities.
Malita Jones came in to our lives through the recommendation of a previous colleague. My son decided to look in to buying his first home in October 2014 instead of renting again. He immediately connected with Malita and she spent many hours with him trying to figure out his wants and needs in a home. On their first day out viewing properties he put an offer in on a property that may have been in his price range but possibly overpriced. She cautiously guided him in the offer process and recommended a fair price even though it was higher than the asking price. There were multiple offers presented and he did not get the house due in part to the slow response from his mortgage lender.
Undaunted they both continued searching and we were always invited along for the ride – it was quite an education on the current housing market in Austin and quite fun. On the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend we all went out together again to view several properties and he again found a home that met all of his wants and needs. It had been on the market for awhile, needed some minor cosmetic upgrading and repair but was well within his budget so Malita recommended a fair offer price LESS than the asking price thinking there was room for countering.The seller accepted but this time Malita recommended her mortgage lender and with their expertise and the expertise of Malita he closed on December 29th, 2014 even with a week long family trip to Cancun for Christmas!!
Astounding to watch and experience an event like this being orchestrated by a competent, hard working and friendly professional. I would recommend Malita to anyone who is thinking of buying a home because her honesty and skill will get you into the home that you desire.

I had the pleasure of working with Malita back in August. Malita was extremely knowledgable of the real estate market and made herself available as we viewed multiple houses before finding the perfect home. I know that I had more questions than the average client, but she was patient with me and answered everything I needed to know throughout the process. She was easy to contact and quick to return phone calls. The honesty and integrity Malita showed did not go unnoticed and without her guidance I would probably still be house hunting!! On top of her excellent service, she was also able to provide me with reliable sources once I found my home such as a great survey company and foundation repair company. I highly recommend Malita Jones to anyone looking to buy or sell a home as she is one of the best in the business.

Last summer when we decided to sell our home in Cedar Park we knew right away we would call Malita Jones with Sky Realty. Malita was our realtor when we bought our first home and we had an awesome experience with her services.
While our home was on the market she kept in touch with us, always making sure our needs were being met. Malita is not only a great realtor but she has a great sense of humor and gets to know her clients on a personal level. We never feel like we are “bothering” her when we call and she is always quick to call us back when returning a phone call.
Once we got a firm offer on our home we were selling she jumped in very quickly and helped us with the whole selling process. When we were looking for a new home she was great with helping us make appointments to view homes and working with other realtors. At times when my husband and I seemed unsure about a home she would offer up ideas and always seemed to help put things in perspective for us. Malita clearly knows what she is doing and helps her clients see the big picture when needed.
I do remember this one particular house my husband and I were looking at. It was clearly out of our “budget” and was more like a dream house than a realistic home for us. We found ourselves walking around this house trying to figure out how we could afford a house like that. She stepped in and reminded us of how easy it would be to get into a house that is way more than we could afford and end up way over our head in the long run. She could have easily tried to get us into a house that was out of our price range but instead she reminded us that the last thing we wanted to do was end up hating our house and want out in a year or two. Not only does that make her a great realtor but a good friend.
We just love the house we ended up buying and have no regrets what so ever.
I am very grateful for having worked with Malita and will recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Thank you so much for making this process smooth and informative. You always catch the little things and make sure they are attended to. You also know our style and help us save time by disregarding homes that won’t fit the bill from the get go.
When it came time to search North Austin for a home, we didn’t really have any ideas on where to turn or who to trust. By coincidence, we ended up with Malita through a mutual friend, and we had great results. We found many options, carefully viewed each one through a critical eye, and even got Malita’s opinion about the quality of the offerings. Honest and forthcoming, Malita does business with a personal touch, and it makes all the difference.
Top Quality Service from a Top Quality Professional. I highly recommend Malita as a realtor to friends and coworkers whenever I can!
When we moved back to Texas this fall we had the good sense (and good fortune) of working with Malita at 512 HomeStore to purchase our new home. It should be noted that we had a very specific budget and timeline and started looking when I was 6 months pregnant. Malita worked with us to not only streamline the process, but share her expertise on the areas we were considering. Malita made herself available to us in person, via text, email, and frequent phone calls to make sure we had our ducks in a row and were able to make things happen in a timely manner.
A MUST in the fast-paced Austin real estate market! She went above and beyond the call of duty and we couldn’t be happier with our experience and our new home! Do yourself a favor and make the choice to work with a professional who is just as much fun to house hunt with as she is savvy about the market.
My wife and I have worked with 5 different realtors over the last 14 years because of all our moves and Malita was without a doubt the best one we have worked with. Her knowledge of Austin and the surrounding areas is impressive. Moving to a big city like Austin can be intimidating and she helped ease our anxiety with narrowing down our search to areas that were best for our family. Malita is also so much fun to work with…personality plus! If you need a realtor in the Austin area, Malita is the best out there!
We love Malita!
I don’t even remember how we ended up working with Malita, all I know is that she patiently showed us a seemingly endless number of scary potential investment properties before helping us sell our house and buy a new one.
She’s professional, fun and really makes an effort to understand your family and your needs during the house selling/buying process. She sold our house in one day after three years of no sales with other realtors.
Malita stuck with me through a rather lengthy first time buyers process. Over a 4 month span we failed to get gain any traction on 3 separate bids, losing the homes on the last day every time. Then after actually winning the 4th bid, Chase Bank took to long to get the finances in order and the sellers had to walk. On our 5th (and final if we didn’t win it) bid everything magically fell into place. Malita introduced me to her Lender Sylvia Ward and 2 weeks later I had the keys to my new home; which was much larger and nicer than any of the prior ones we bid on. Throughout the entire process Malita was patient, understanding, and kind.
When buying a home I believe you must find a Realtor you can trust and someone who understands you. I Highly Recommend Malita Jones, Realtor for all your New Home Needs!
