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 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. And Quill knows that times have changed. Sellers don't have to pay a buyer's agent in order to find a buyer anymore, thanks to the internet. So sellers pay just a 2% commission - instead of the traditional 6% or more - to sell their home.


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.

He is professional, thorough and extremely knowledgable and he advocates very effectively for his clients, while also providing great customer service.

    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.
