Meet the team. We look forward to working with you.
Donna Miller is passionate about real estate. At age 19, she began working for a homebuilding company in Dallas, quickly moving her way up the ranks from sales assistant to senior and finally top-selling sales associate. After eight years with the company, Donna decided to branch off on her own. In 2005, she moved to Austin and earned her real estate license; in 2009, she became a licensed broker and founded Blairfield Realty. As the company grew, so did the demand for more extensive remodeling and design services among a segment of her clients. In response, Donna and co-owner Tamara Carlisle founded Blair Homes & Design, an offshoot of Blairfield Realty, in 2013.
Donna’s “whatever it takes” attitude has earned the trust of 100s of buyers and sellers in the Austin real estate market. She is committed to helping people buy their dream home, get top dollar for the sale of their home and find great real estate investments. Whether it’s helping a client stage a home (http://blairfieldrealty.com/blog/) or design a new home (http://blairfieldrealty.com/our-projects/), she and her team deliver.
Donna is a member of The National Association of Realtors®, The Texas Association of Realtors® and The Austin Board of Realtors®. When she is not immersed in all things real estate, Donna mentors students at Barton Hills Elementary School. She also enjoys Austin’s wonderful restaurants, beautiful biking and jogging trails and eclectic night spots.
Born in the Midwest, Monica Blackburn moved to Houston after graduating from Coe College. In the early 90s, she and her husband moved to Austin. Looking for a place to raise their children, they chose the Barton Hills neighborhood–-a choice, she says, that benefitted her family in innumerable ways. The two Blackburn daughters attended Barton Hills Elementary, O.Henry and Kealing Middle Schools and Austin High.
Ms. Blackburn has over 20 years’ experience in retail marketing, property management and leasing. Since obtaining her real estate license, her focus has shifted from commercial leasing/sales to residential sales. Monica focuses on understanding exactly what her clients want, diligently researching the market, and then helping them secure their perfect home. She is a member of The National Association of Realtors®, The Texas Association of Realtors® and the Austin Board of Realtors.
When she’s not engaged with the business of Blairfield Realty and its clients, Monica enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. She also loves to run and is an active volunteer at Austin High School’s Academy for Global Studies.

He spent 10 years working as a retail manager for HEB Grocery Company and in 2002 decided to obtain his real estate license. He is a member of the National Association of Realtors®, the Texas Association of Realtors®, the Austin Board of Realtors® and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

For the past 10 years, she also has been very active in the Austin real estate market and credits her background in finance with helping her recognize its great investment potential.
Tami loves real estate and is committed to helping clients during every step of the buying and selling process. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors®, the Texas Association of Realtors® and the Austin Board of Realtors®.
