Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


What Will You Do With the Last Business Day in 2016?

Yes, this Sacramento Realtor is still engaged in her wor-cation in Hawaii, as you can tell by the above photograph. Every day I get out of our vacation house and go somewhere fun. Yesterday, I stopped at a few furniture stores because sometime this year I will be furnishing the house after the sellers / tenants move.

I could not peruse bedroom furniture because a woman from Elk Grove called in the midst of my hunt and I answered my phone from the second floor of Kohala Furniture. This is a seller whom I must have contacted many times as a referral maybe a year ago and she never responded until the moment suited. She expects to sell her home without the painting or recarpeting she says it needs, knock 2 percentage points off my commission, and sell at top of market; not to mention, she demanded a full report on-the-spot of all homes on her street that have sold, but she is not about to read a 50-page CMA report, thank you very much. 

She also noted I am a top producer, the #2 agent out of 1000 or so at Lyon she says, and wished outloud I was #20 because I must make too much money. She believes top agents who make a lot of money won't make the seller a lot of money, which is completely the opposite.

We earn the big bucks because our sellers get top dollar, which means we perform well. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Last Business Day of 2016 Can't Come Soon Enough.

Fun Solution for Rainy Days in Hawaii
We had a light sprinkling of rain yesterday afternoon for about 15 minutes, but fortunately, most of the rain in Kailua-Kona has stopped. The first 3 weeks of December were unusually wet for this time of year. Not surprising, climate changes are… more
Selling Sacramento Real Estate While on Vacation
There are many agents who take a holiday in December and don't look back at their business. They pass it off on another agent in their office or maybe they don't have any new or old business to contend with when away. Not every agent is a top… more
Mi's Bistro in Kona Lets You Come As You Are
Hard to say if it was the excellent company (having my husband join me in Hawaii for Christmas) or the location on the ocean, or the marvelous food or my glass of pinot that made dinner so delightful. Or maybe just the fact I found a suitable… more
How About Learning to Play Those Hawaiian Ukuleles?
You can't swing a dead cat in Hawaii without hitting a ukulele player. Oh, where did that expression come from anyway, it's such a horrible thing to say. But I use it because it's amusing, not because I would ever throw a dead cat much less want to… more
Mele Kalikimaka and The Coffee Shack in Honaunau
It just isn't Christmas Eve in Kailua-Kona unless you can go snorkeling at Two-Step Beach and stop at The Coffee Shack along the way. At least that was the plan we had in the works for yesterday. We left Kona much later than we intended because my… more
The Drive to Mauna Kea Summit on a Gravel Road
Now, if you ask my husband, he will say the drive down from the Mauna Kea Summit was the most terrifying, but that's because he wasn't driving. He was putting his foot on the imaginery brake and reminding me about approaching curves. He also brought… more
New Listing in Elk Grove Can Quickly Close
The sellers contacted me a while back, upset with their existing agent for reasons I didn't fully catch, but the reasons do not matter because I'm not the sort of agent who upsets her clients. Whatever the reason as to why the seller wanted to… more
Casual Dining in Kailua-Kona at Jackie Rey's
Part of the fun of being on vacation in Hawaii is sampling different restaurants. Last year I spent 3 weeks at the Marriott Waikola and even with walking over to the Kings Shops, I still did not have enough variety. That is not a problem in Kailua… more
Come on a Seahorse Farm Tour in Kona
We woke up yesterday morning fully intending to take advantage of the break in the rain at our vacation house in Hawaii and drive up to the Mauna Kea Summit. I rented a jeep specifically for this purpose. However, due to all of the unusual amount of… more
