Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: May 2018

Consider Protecting Mono Lake as a Charitable Donation

My brokerage, in an attempt to appear more human and caring, I imagine, started setting up the Lyon Cares program, which donates funds to charities, right after a company-wide fiasco happened that threatened our very framework. I'm not saying it's not a good program, or that even under the auspiciousness of how it was founded lessens its credibility, it still deserves our support. Doesn't matter how a person or company comes to share the wealth with others, in my mind, as long as they do.

As an office, we can nominate charities and hope our choices garner enough votes that the company will choose that charity. Well, I know no matter what I have to say about preserving Mono Lake, it's not a popular charity for most of the people in my office. Starting with the fact it is not "local." So I thought I would just put it out there for anybody else who is interested in conservation.

Buyers Who Do Their Agent's Job and Call Listing Agents
Agents are programmed from birth it seems to ask people they meet if those individuals are working with an agent. Nobody wants to tread on toes. However, as anybody who knows me knows, that is not a question I ask. The reason I don't ask that… more
Life-Altering Decision at Yosemite Half Dome Summit
Of all the places to get engaged, I had not considered a spot where falling to your death could be eminent. I mean, what is it with men and heights? I recall when my husband and I decided to get married, and he seemed a bit disappointed that it… more

Can a Seller Refuse an Accepted Counter Offer?
An agent in a bit of confusion yesterday left a voice mail to ask how a seller can refuse to accept their counter offer after the buyer signed it and sent it back. Like with anything in Sacramento real estate, the devil is in the details. It all… more
Sacramento Open Houses and Holiday Schedules
No matter what day of the week, I seem to always be busy with work. For that reason, it's not unusual for me not to pay a lot of attention to the day, much less the month or year. I still can't get over the fact the 20th century is gone -- since… more
What Sorts of Plants Can You Grow in Sacramento?
One of the reasons to buy a home in Sacramento is so you can plant a garden in that newly acquired yard. It's not the same as renting a house, as I can recall a rental in 1981 in Newport Beach where I had a garden. My lease was up right before the… more
A Good Sacramento Upholstery Company Works Wonders
When it comes to upholstery, I can honestly say I have never before in my life hired a professional upholsterer. That's probably because I'm with the bulk of people who would throw out a worn sofa, for example, before re-upholstering it. Or, maybe… more
Supporting Community Events Like 2018 Taste of Land Park
The interesting thing about the 2018 Taste of Land Park is we have lived in Land Park now for 16 years, and we just attended the 17th Annual Taste of Land Park. Yup, never participated in the past. How lame is that? Well, in all fairness, I've been… more
What Exactly Constitutes Closing a Sacramento Escrow
Right after contract acceptance, my transaction coordinator sends out an estimated timeline for the transaction. Which I forward to the seller. And you can bet they keep an eagle eye on that timeline, LOL. The day before the first contingency… more
