Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: October 2017

When You Meet a Real Pioneer in Sacramento Real Estate

A favorite expression of one of my ex-husbands (who is dead now, I should add) is "pioneers get arrows in their backs." He wasn't necessarily a pioneer, although he liked to think of himself that way. He was a guy who smoked too much pot and was crazier if he stopped taking his meds. He was half crazy anyway. But that's what seminar speakers basically are. Flim-flam men. Barkers.

I have met a true pioneer. That person died earlier this month in Sacramento. In fact, when I first met her, she gave me the best piece of advice I've probably ever received. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link (and no, you do not have to hit the back button to return to this site): Most Important Real Estate Tip This Realtor Learned From Marge Reid.

This above photo was one of my first listings in Sacramento, a listing Marge Reid helped me to obtain.

Before I was a top agent in Sacramento, I used to look at the statistics for annual sales production and figure I'd never get into even the top 100. It's not that I had a defeatist attitude as some of you might think, it's just that it wasn't… more

Should You Let a Property Manager Sell Your Rental?
