Eli Blackburn



Eli is an engineer by trade but a real estate professional by choice! After five years in the construction management field overseeing projects ranging from land development to high rise buildings on the strip in Las Vegas, he found his real passion is in real estate.

Eli has been pursuing his real estate sales career for over five years now, and with his background in real estate investment he is able to advise his clients on making smart real estate purchases and maximizing profits when selling their properties.

Eli grew up in Idaho just outside of Yellowstone National Park and went to school at Montana State University in Bozeman. He enjoys all outdoor activities and especially fly fishing! If you have any recommendations for fly fishing in Central Texas please let him know! Eli also loves working out, going out with friends, traveling, and playing with his new dog Gracie.

He fell in love with the unique quirkiness of Austin (especially South Austin) and strives to stay on top of the fast-paced real estate market. He is a firm believer in good communication and goes out of his way to quickly respond to his clients. Education is also important to Eli and he is currently working towards his Broker’s license which he will have by the end of 2016 and is looking forward to working as a Broker Associate.

I had the pleasure of working with Eli this year! My house had been on the market for awhile with another realtor and not getting any interest so I hired Eli as my new realtor... he met with me immediately and provided tons of data on what the house should be priced at and what needed to be done to get it sold. The next day I started having showings and within 3 weeks we were under contract! Eli is very knowledgeable in the housing market of Austin and I would trust him with all my future buying and selling needs. Thank you for all your hard work and can't wait to work with you again.

Eli was a pleasure to work with when we bought our first home. He has gone above and beyond since then by periodically checking in on us and making sure that we file appropriate tax exemptions. We would definitely recommend Eli!

James Seppi & Taylor Cook

Eli helped my husband and I find and buy our first home, and he made it such a great experience! Eli was super helpful in narrowing down our search locations and was always eager to see homes with us as soon as they became available, often times even before they were listed. He is extremely knowledgeable and helped us consider all factors for each home we saw, which was especially beneficial for us as first-time home buyers, new to Austin. He made the offer process simple and pulled out all of the tricks to get us our dream home in such a competitive market. We are so thankful for Eli and absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Eli did an outstanding job in helping me find and buy the right condo in Austin. From the initial research to the final contract, Eli demonstrated a strong attention to detail and ability to get maximum value for the client. I give my him my full recommendation and am thankful for all his skilled and hard work in this process.

Eli Blackburn helped us to purchase our home. When I say he helped I mean just that he walked us through the entire process and explained every detail. Here it is 8 months later and he's still checking on us to make sure we're content. I couldn't recommend a better person or realtor!! Thanks Eli!!

Moe Sanchez & Yvette Garcia

Eli has assisted me in both a purchase of a new home as well as the sale of an investment property. He did a great job with both and I found him to be professional and very quick to assist us with whatever we needed. I would recommend Eli to anyone who is looking for a realtor who will go the extra mile to make sure their experience is a great one.

James & Abby Speyer

Eli helped me sell my home in 5 days!!!!! I had interviewed several realtors and Eli stood out the most. He came to me with a great plan on how to sell my home. Eli took his time with me and made me feel like he really cared. Eli was always there for me if I had any questions or concerns. If you are looking for a compassionate and hard working realtor Eli is your guy.

I would like to start this review by saying Eli Blackburn is AMAZING! He was able to very quickly and easily find me the condo of my dreams. As a first time homeowner, I found the whole process of buying a home very overwhelming. Going through the process for the first time and on your own is not easy. And "words of wisdom" from friends and even strangers (it turns out everyone has a home buying horror story to share) definitely sent me through a whirlwind of ups and downs through this emotionally draining process....but that was all before I met Eli!

So here's my story. I probably talked to about 4 real estate agents prior to meeting Eli (2 actually taking me to view properties one time each and 2 just signing me up for their MLS after "listening" to what I was looking for). Clearly, I was not impressed. They were all very nice, but none of them were really LISTENING to what I wanted. They quickly signed me up to their MLS for EVERY zip code in Austin even though I repeatedly told them the only location I wanted to look in was south/central and in a SAFE area since I would be living alone. Sifting through 50 different listings an email that weren't even in the area I was looking and also in rough neighborhoods was quickly overwhelming and frustrating because I felt like I was doing their job! All I wanted was a real estate agent who was going to actually listen to what I wanted and send me a few listings that they thought met that description, and in walks Eli.

Eli sent me a PERSONALIZED email with a handful of listings, highlighting the ones he thought I would most like. He took me to see 2 places one day and BAM I fell in love with the 2nd condo I saw. I already had a mortgage broker lined up and I was pre-approved, but that fell through and Eli saved the day by helping to expedite the approval process through a new lender. Next came the offer, the inspection, the appraisal, and the closing. Eli made sure to walk me carefully through each of these steps to make sure I felt comfortable/understood everything that was going on. I felt bad because I was constantly emailing and texting him with silly questions, but he always made me feel like my questions were important and valid not silly and was always quick to respond/calm my nerves.

I would definitely and have already recommended Eli to all my friends that are considering buying a home in Austin. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and most importantly took the time to get to know me and really understand what I was looking for in a home. I've been living in my new place for a month and a half now and could not be happier with my decision to buy!

What was a casual conversation one day turned into a reality within just a few hours. Eli was very quick and eager to help my partner and I find a place to live within budget and within a very tight timeline. Eli took initiative right away and filtered out options for us in a very organized and concise manner. He was super flexible with my daytime schedule and my other half's nighttime schedule. He made it clear that he was available anytime we needed him. The whole process was extremely smooth and professional and we would highly recommend Eli to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks for all of your help Eli!

Manuel Navarro & Colt Melton

Had the opportunity to work with Eli Blackburn over a 8 month period while I was in the market to buy a home. I want to let anyone who is looking for to purchase a new home or property that Eli is a fantastic person to work with. I found Eli was very knowledgeable of the market, ALWAYS followed up with information request in a timely manner, and was very patient with me and showed me multiple properties until I found the one best for me. Once I found the property I wanted to purchase, Eli was an invaluable resource that was able to guide me through and beyond the closing process. Using his multiple connections in the finance portion and the home inspection process, Eli and I were successful and finding a great lender with good rates as well as an excellent home inspector who was able to come at short notice and provided his services and even educated me on what to expect. Eli worked tirelessly to ensure the closing went as scheduled and on time. Eli is the guy you want in your corner when purchasing property if you want a professional to partner with in the complex process of purchasing a home. He makes it simple and convenient. Thanks again Eli for helping get in my new home. We love it!

As a first time home buyer I found the independent research process to be overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating. A friend referred me to Eli's firm and I could not have been happier with the outcome.

We started by identifying 5-10 homes that I was interested in looking at using their website. After looking at three of my top picks I decided that I would live in an apartment for the rest of my life (the pictures online NEVER give you an idea of what the house, yard, etc. actually look like).

Eli recommended that we take a look at a subdivision that I really was not interested in. We took a look and within about 15 minutes I had found my home.

My biggest concern with buying a house was the "salesman" aspect. The feigned interest in what I want/need, the over-the-top excitement to help me into my new home, etc. I am automatically put off by salespeople and on my guard when I am in this type of situation.

I did not experience any of this. Eli was genuinely interested in helping me find my perfect home, where I would be happy, and at a price I could manage. He helped me through every step of the way. One of the main challenges is understanding all of the home-buying jargon. It is truly another language. He was able to explain things to me in a way that I could understand to ensure I was making informed decisions.

Whenever I have the chance I tell people about Eli and will be sure to contact him the next time I in the market for a new home.

Ryan O’Dell

We've been in our home now for about 3 months and couldn't be happier. I didn't know Eli prior to meeting him for our first home tour. We were very new to home buying and I had a lot of questions. Eli never once made me feel that "I should know this already". Eli made every effort to respond quickly and accurately to questions and concerns during the process. Eli encouraged us along the way and in the end, we found a great home in a great neighborhood. I would absolutely recommend Eli to first-time home buyers, seasoned home buyers, and everyone in between.

Charlie & Carol Estes

Eli Blackburn is much more than a great Realtor, he is now a family friend. Even when I was out of state in California, Eli and I were corresponding for well over half a year in regards to all the questions I had about financing, neighborhoods, and anything and everything. Eli was always professional, patient with my silly questions and there for my husband and I through the nerve-wracking process of purchasing a first home. Eli has made this process for us as smooth and painless as possible, and we are eternally grateful to him for that. Eli was always a phone call away, even during late hours and weekends. It takes a true professional to work this hard and have such a wonderful work ethic. Eli even went as far as referring trusted lenders, inspectors and home security specialists he has worked with before, so that we are comfortable and assured that we are in good hands. We will always recommend Eli to anyone looking to buy or sell a home without a second thought. We couldn't have picked a better realtor to become part of the wonderful memories we created with purchasing and enjoying our first home.

Eli Blackburn is great to work with! I met Eli at the Modern Home Tour and several months later he listed my home. Eli is hardworking, intelligent and always is available to communicate with you. His marketing is tech savvy, communication skills are top rated and he always listens to his client's concerns. Eli works with you to create the best strategy on selling your home. Selling can be a complicated process but Eli will work with you to get the best results. He does get results!

I have worked with many realtors in the past and Eli Blackburn is one of the best.
