Blairfield Happy Clients, the Beiers!


Sami and Thomas Beier, Barton Hills Residents

Sami and Thomas Beier have lived in Austin for seven years, first in Tarrytown and then in Bouldin Creek, but they were eventually drawn to Barton Hills, both for its location and its award-winning elementary school. Once they made the decision to settle in Barton Hills, though, the Beiers needed to find a home that met their needs. In particular, they wanted it to be within walking distance to their kids’ schools, and they were looking for a spacious lot for their growing family.

Sami and Thomas decided to rent in Barton Hills while they searched for the perfect place, even trying to find a new home on their own. After looking for a long time and working with other realtors, they went to an open house for one of Blairfield Realty’s listings, and the rest is history.

“Donna started sending me listings casually, and two days after we officially made her our realtor, she showed us a home on Rock Terrace that hadn’t even gone to market. The owners had contacted her to do a market survey, and because of her understanding of our family and our needs, she knew we should see it. There’s no way we would have found out about the listing otherwise,” Sami recalled.

The home was in probate court, so the sale moved slowly, but Donna kept in constant communication with her and her husband, providing updates and showing them other properties in the meantime. And because it was in probate, negotiating was also difficult, but according to Sami, Donna made the process immensely easier: “She was always professional, upfront and honest. The same goes for her staff.”

Today, the Beiers couldn’t be happier in their new home. They can walk to their children’s schools – one currently attends Barton Hills Elementary, and his younger siblings are preschoolers at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School – and they’re raising a family in a neighborhood they love. As Sami said, “We have worked with other realtors in Austin and tried doing a home search ourselves. Bringing Donna in to help us was worth it 110% – there’s no way we would have found our home otherwise. She and the rest of Blairfield Realty were outstanding. We haven’t had that kind of realtor experience before.”
