I am a firm believer that I can weather just about any storm, navigate any horrible situation, as long as I can see a reward on the horizon. It's probably this vision that has served me well through my decades in real estate. I'm not talking about a financial reward, either; it's an internal rewa...

Reading blogs on AR can suck me in so easily that I have to be careful about how much time I actually spend on AR. It's not like this Sacramento Realtor has unlimited periods of time during the day in which to chat with other real estate agents about things that are not pertinent to my clients no...

There are times in this business when I'm tempted to tell a potential short sale seller: why don't you just light the thing on fire and be done with it? But I don't advocate arson nor any illegal activities, so, even if those thoughts pass through my brain, not all of them make their way out of m...

There are some people in the world who love adversity, like my husband, for example. He will gladly take the good with the bad, and he will somehow find a way to wallow in the depths of despair, although to be fair, with some sense of sensibility; whereas I prefer the sunny side of life, and coul...

An agent asked when we will present offers on a certain listing. I present offers as they arrive and, in fact have an offer now, which I disclosed and added: but the sellers hope to make a decision today. The agent asked if he could send an offer tomorrow instead.

But many Sacramento home buyers don't know how to answer that question, so I caution my team members to go that extra step when qualifying a home buyer. They need to ask if the buyer understands that if we show them the home, we will write th...

After years of working short sales and foreclosures in the previously distressed Sacramento real estate market, it is such a pleasure to see our local economy turning around and the real estate market rebound. This has been happening for the last 3 years, and it's such a relief to work in a marke...

Each of us on the Elizabeth Weintraub team are tickled pink to present a waterfront home in Riverlake, which will be on the market tomorrow, Friday, April 24th, 2015. It's a Coming Soon listing and there are no showings until Friday, plus it won't be in MLS until Friday, but you can get a sneak p...

It's always nice at the end of a $2 million home sales closing day in Sacramento to be told you were selected to be the listing agent for another home. It's the circle of activity that keeps everything interesting in real estate, especially when your main friends are basically the agents you work...

I saw something come through my cellphone from Inman that says Zillow was down and is now back up, but I can't edit any of my listings nor enter any Coming Soon listings. Ordinarily this would not be a big deal, my not being able to get into Zillow but today it is a huge freakin' deal. Because to...
