Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


Having a Title and Escrow Background Paid Off Again

Many people try their hand at real estate after coming from title or escrow backgrounds, but not everybody makes it as a Realtor. In fact, it can be a bit of a drawback for people who think they know everything. I was once one of those people who thought she knew more than she did, and yet the older I get, the less I realize I know.

I thought having 5 years in title and escrow was enough to pass the real estate exam without studying for it. That's why I took the exam 5 times before I passed. The fifth time I said, oh, what the hell, I'll study for it. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: How a Title and Escrow Background Saved the Day as a Sacramento Realtor.

When is a Real Estate Award Not Really an Award?
One year I won an award from a prestigious state-wide association for doing The Best Job Ever in a particular profession, and the only reason I won that award was because (gasp) no other members had applied for it. Did it lessen the enjoyment of… more
What Do Top Producers Do That Other Agents Do Not?
This is the time of year when I try to update my websites so they reflect my production from the previous year. I can't update everything because, for example, I won't know until the Awards Celebration where I rank within the company. This year it's… more
Ever Wonder About Joining a Real Estate Team?
