Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


View of Lava Falling into the Ocean in Hawaii

Sometimes, you're just in the right place at the right time. And if you're like Josh Amolsch, exclusive buyer's agent for the Elizabeth Weintraub Team, you worked hard for that privilege. He is staying at my house in Kona on vacation right now.

A little background: there are 5 volcanoes on Big Island of Hawaii, but only three of them are active. The 5 volcancoes are Kohala (extinct), Mauna Kea (dormant), Hualalai (active), Mauna Loa (active) and Kilauea (active). Most of the lava flow into the ocean comes through cones near Kilauea. There is another volcano 15 miles off the island, under the water.

Josh shot this photo after an 8-mile bike ride, which is super strenguous given the terrain. You can read more in my personal blog today and see more photographs of lava at this link: Lava Flow Into the Ocean on Big Island.

Why Buying a Car in Hawaii is Somewhat Difficult
Well meaning people will tell you all sorts of things about buying a car in Hawaii. Several have suggested that I purchase a much older car because somehow I guess they think I would prefer to drive an already rusted-out vehicle. No, thank you, I… more
Fun Saturday Activities From Kailua-Kona
My last full day in Kailua-Kona was fairly busy, given the fact that when I got up that morning, I didn't really have a plan. Well, my plan was to finish up a few loads of laundry. But my manciure appointment from Friday got pushed to Saturday… more
A Handy Gadget for Your Home No Matter Where
I happen to think this gadget my sister recommended is very helpful to use at our house in Hawaii, but it would be useful anywhere. Although, I had a really odd thing happen a few days ago that never happens in Sacramento. In Sacramento, where our… more
Photos of Things to Do at Waikoloa Beach
About 7 years ago I discovered that I could visit Hawaii and still sell real estate back home in Sacramento, meaning I did not have to be present in Sacramento to list or sell or close my sellers' homes. In fact, in some ways, I was even more… more
Kicking Back at Kona Brewing
My husband is not much of a shopper for material goods. A farmer's market, yes, but not stuff to wear or things for the house in Hawaii. Yet, we ventured out to buy a new sofa and a few area rugs yesterday, which we managed to spend four hours… more
Visiting the Summit of World's Largest Volcano
At least the road to Mauna Kea, although not completely paved, is very wide; not so with the road to Mauna Loa summit, the world's largest volcano. That road, although paved, is a one-lane roller-coaster with blind curves. I cannot begin to tell… more
Wild Hawaii Monk Seals and an Octopus Farm
OK, this is like only the tip of the iceburg of things one can see on a Natural Energy Laboratory Tour in Kona, Hawaii. Ever since we visited the Seahorse Farm last winter, I've wanted to do the NEL tours. We finally got our chance yesterday. It's… more
Goodbye Magic Sands Beach and Hello Sacramento Heat Wave
It is 7 AM where I am at the moment. Staring out at the cool blue ocean horizon dotted by white sailboats and fishing vessels. My view is 180-degree panoramic and I can't capture its enormity with a camera lens, which is frustrating. I also… more
What Stops You From Spending a Fortune on Art?
The one thing that saves me from spending a fortune on art is the fact I have limited wall space. My homes have more windows than large blank walls. But then it doesn't stop me from buying pottery or other hand-crafted artifacts. As I stood at… more
