Blairfield RealtyPosted: May 12, 2016
This month we are spotlighting a local real estate company, Blairfield Realty. (Complete disclosure: we used Blairfield when we recently sold our house and bought another one. They were already an Armadillo client, so we knew that they were a great company.)
We asked founder and owner, Donna Blair to tell us about how the company got started and where it was headed.
What is Blairfield Realty?
Blairfield Realty is a boutique real estate brokerage located in the Zilker neighborhood. We specialize in full-service client representation, and we are committed to bringing real value to our clients, our community, and our industry. We approach our job with a “whatever it takes” attitude, and we are extraordinarily passionate about advocating for our clients’ best interest.
How long have you been in the business?
I have been working in the industry for about 20 years. I started Blairfield Realty in 2009.
How did you get started in the real estate industry?
I started working for a homebuilder fresh out of high school and stuck with that for many years. Real Estate was all I ever wanted to do.
What advice would you give to someone who wanted a career in real estate?
My advice to anyone wanting to get in the business would be to get ready for some hard work. It is not easy, but it’s not rocket science either. You need to be committed to working hard for your clients and truly care about what you’re doing to be successful. Too many people get into this business because they think it’s easy money. It’s not.
Where is Blairfield Realty headed over the next several years?
We plan to keep doing what we are doing; serving our clients and our communities. We’ve been growing our business at a nice sustainable pace for the last 7 years, and I’d like to just keep that going for many, many years to come.
Does the business use promotional products?
Yes! I think we’ve done a nice job with branding our company, and the promotional products really help with that. Pens, stationery, shopping bags, and various labels all help to make our brand recognizable to our clients and potential clients.
Our entire team here at Blairfield is passionate about volunteering and philanthropy. We help out a lot in our community schools, donate money for our park systems, raise money for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS, and last December we went shopping for all of the children at Helping Hands Home for Children and bought them all a new holiday outfit.
