About Marko

I was fortunate enough to grow up in Victoria and graduated from Victoria High School in Fernwood in 2004 – the oldest public high school west of Winnipeg and north of San Francisco. At 14 years old, I started working for my father, first at his stone masonry business, then at Juras Construction Limited building new homes. I learned a lot about construction over the years and working with my father I also learned the value of hard work. After high school, I went on to attain my master’s degree from UBC and enjoyed a successful career at the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Propelled by my passion for real estate and properties, I began my exciting full-time career as a REALTOR® in 2010. Immediately, I saw an industry in need of change with consumers hungry for more options. I was one of the very first REALTORS® in Victoria to offer both Flat Fee Listings (also known as ‘Mere Postings’) and a cash back program for my buyers.  In 2012 I became Fair Realty’s Associate Broker and by end of 2013 I was one of Victoria’s most productive REALTORS®.  At this point in my career, 70% to 80% of my sales are via referral.  Feel free to drop me a line anytime at markojuras@shaw.ca!
