About me

I have a passion for real estate. And because of what I have learned pursuing that passion as an attorney, I believe there is real room for improvement in the real estate industry. That's why I started Quill Realty. Quill is more efficient than almost any other real estate firm. Quill represents both buyers and seller. Every client gets an attorney that is included in the fee charged. And Quill charges less than most.


But if you're looking only for a great attorney, I can still help.  I am 100% committed to identifying, protecting, and advancing my clients' interests.  And I never, ever forget that sometimes an attorney is more expensive than the solution.  Where that's the case, I probably won't agree to represent you.  My clients' financial interests come first, always.

    Craig does an exceptional job of helping his clients navigate complex areas of real property law and real estate matters. He is professional, thorough and extremely knowledgable and he advocates very effectively for his clients, while also providing great customer service. I would not hesitate to refer my friends, family or clients to Craig.

    I highly endorse this lawyer. As a real estate attorney myself, Mr. Blackmon is one of those lawyers that other lawyers dread going up against. He is an admirable opponent, and makes the rest of us work hard to reach settle or defend against his position in court. I admire Mr. Blackmon's capabilities so much, that I actually refer clients to him when the circumstances warrant it.
