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.

The two Blackburn daughters attended Barton Hills Elementary, O.Henry and Kealing Middle Schools and Stephen F. Austin High School.

Monica has more than 20 years of 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 in 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 Stephen F. Austin High School’s Academy for Global Studies.

Monica Blackburn and the team at Blairfield Realty are wonderful to work with! I sold and bought several homes with their support and Monica, my realtor, was always very easy to communicate with and very responsive to my to my questions, concerns and throughout the entire emotional process of buying and selling my homes. Monica is a good listener, very genuine and diplomatic which helps her to build relationships easily with her clients and with other realtors. I believe these are key characteristics for an amazing realtor to possess and Monica and the Blairfield team have it all. Thank you Monica and Blairfield Realty! I can’t imagine a better team to work with!!!


Last spring when we decided to sell our house in central Austin, I called Monica Blackburn at Blairfield Realty. I had met Monica when our daughters went to high school together, and I knew that she had gotten her real estate license. I can honestly say that calling Monica was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. To say that she worked long hours and dealt with some unexpected challenges, is an understatement. Not only did she help us sell our house, she also helped us find our new house. Any time that I found a house that I was interested in seeing, Monica was there to take me to the house. I can’t tell you how many houses we looked at. Finally, we were under contract with our house and had put a contract on our new house, when the proverbial “you know what” hit the fan. I won’t go into many details, but the day that we closed on our house, we had less than 12 hours to vacate the house including all of our furniture and other belongings. Monica and the Blairfield team went to work and got us packed up and moved out by the end of the day. Monica, I and 7 movers were up until 2:30 in the morning moving our belongings into storage. Talk about above and beyond the call of duty. And, through it all, Monica never lost her sense of humor. I will recommend Monica and the Blairfield team to anyone who is considering selling or buying a home.

Monica Blackburn was absolutely wonderful when I was looking to purchase my home in Austin. She never gave up on the search for my perfect house and worked hard to find out what I was looking for in a house and location. She was so patient with me when I kept changing my mind and she was always available when I needed her or had a question about the process. I would highly recommend her if you want someone who is down to earth and willing to work hard to either buy or sell your home.

Monica did a wonderful job selling our house. She helped with every step of getting the house ready, coming out to meet contractors she suggested for carpeting, window replacement, etc. Whenever small problems arose, she was unflappable, doing her best to fix them and keep everyone happy. She even sold some of our old furniture for us online, getting a good price.

If you are willing to take suggestions, you will get the most benefit from the services offered by Blairfield. The house will look so good you won’t want to sell it anymore.

We met Monica Blackburn at an open house when we first began our home search and I am glad that we chose her as she was a great help in the purchase of our house. We may not have been the easiest clients for Monica since it took us 7 months to find the right home, but she was with us every step of the way. Monica always made time for us to view properties that we were interested in and was prompt with writing up offers. Also, Monica went the extra mile during the due diligence process by helping out with arranging and meeting with inspectors/contractors when we could not get away from our jobs. To sum it up, Monica is extremely hard-working, ethical, patient, and she will not try to get you excited about a house that is not right for you. We really enjoyed working with Monica and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell property in the Austin area.

Monica is amazing!! Our house was listed on a Thursday, showed 16 times before the open house on Saturday where we received an offer. We closed less then a month later! Fabulous experience, and I highly recommend them!

Blairfield is a smaller, local real estate team that is very knowledgeable about the central Austin housing market. With the help of Blairfield Realty’s Monica Blackburn, in 2013 I was able to purchase an amazing house in east Austin which met my very picky specifications. To this day, I am still loving the home.

Monica was very good about staying on top of things and continuously following up with me, which caused me to ultimately decide to sign with her as my real estate agent. Even when Monica did not know the answer to some of my questions, she would always get back to me promptly with an answer. I also appreciated that Monica was not “fake” like some of the other real estate agents I had encountered, who only seemed to be after building their client portfolio as fast as possible. Monica was down to earth, friendly, patient, and helpful. She also had access to some upcoming home sales, before they were on MLS, which was extremely valuable in my specific situation. Couldn’t be more pleased with Monica and Blairfield!!
