Elizabeth Weintraub: Sacramento Real Estate

Real Estate Agent - RE/MAX Gold - DRE #00697006
Sacramento real estate and housing market, from Galt to Lincoln. Local observations about Sacramento restaurants, special events, music concerts and the Sacramento lifestyle, including great places to vacation around the world.



What do you do when a buyer calls you, the listing agent, and breaks down in tears on the phone? When the buyer's agent begs you to please speak with his buyer? The thing about the Sacramento real estate business is it's all about the people; it's never the property.  It's trying to figure out wh...
Whenever I take a new listing, I walk through the home to imagine how a buyer will feel, and then I try to convey that feeling to people who read my words. It's a knack some Sacramento Realtors possess. When you're in the business as long as me, which is over 40 years of real estate, you get to i...
My father was a horrible and evil person. He would ask me cruel questions and pose unlikely and hurtful scenarios just to be mean. Like when we were fishing one day out of a boat on Forest Lake (Minnesota) with my brother and our dog, Lulu, he threw Lulu into the water and told her to head toward...
Every so often I get an email from an investor who says he or she is interested in buying homes at a discount and want my help. Since I work for sellers, that's impossible because to help them to get a discount would mean breaking a fiduciary to a seller, and that won't happen. It's also pretty m...
Real estate transactions are hard enough without throwing into the mix language barriers and agents working with buyers who are from other areas where business is done very differently than in Sacramento, but I am always up for a challenge. I was not prepared for the buyer's agent to flippantly s...
Who does not absolutely love a 1915 highwater bungalow with original features? Raise your hands. OK, the rest of you can leave the room, LOL. Because I want to talk with potential buyers who see the beauty and feel inspired to tackle a job like this one. Much of the hard and expensive work has al...
With great pleasure due to an easy escrow, we just closed the sale of the most expensive home in the cluster of new homes near East Sacramento. Number 6 Delcan Court just closed yesterday at $485,000, and made a new homeowner pretty excited. She's getting a brand new home a stone's throw from Eas...
The headlines that I knew were coming have arrived today, and they say the same thing that the headlines have been saying for the past 10 years. Nothing has changed, really. We are still in recovery mode concerning the housing market in Sacramento, and prices are on an upward swing.CoreLogic rele...
Many of my clients are extremely interesting people. Far more interesting than me. A client whose home I recently sold had invited my team member Barbara Dow and me to her show last Saturday at the Panama Art Factory. Barbara was out of town that day, and I had two listing appointments, so neithe...
When I received my first one star review from some idiot I had never met, I was furious. I could not understand how some well respected website (my opinion not the publics) would allow such nonsense. This was from a person I had no business with, was absolutely NOT what you would call a client, a...
