Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


When Sacramento Realtors Take the Day Off

Yesterday, I made one phone call related to Sacramento real estate business. Which is slow for a weekday. A fellow with an investment property to sell seems to have read an article I wrote about tenants in common and desires to sell his rental in Sacramento. For some reason he picked up my contact information through Z although my name is sufficient to find me. Say what you guys want about Z, heh, heh. Although he did not answer his phone.

Thursdays are often a good day to plan an activity when I won't be subject to a ton of calls and emails. Besides, I spent a good hour on the phone with the corporate office at Lowes. Explaining that the manager of the store here in Kona cannot do the job of his coordinator AND manage the store, and his coordinator is on "leave." When I asked if he has checked on the shipment of our overdue shower accessories, he responded: "it didn't arrive in FedX today." I wanted to scream: But did it SHIP?

But, because we are in Hawaii, and I have the ability to find out this answer myself, I did not respond in that manner. Besides, what good would it do? No point in upsetting people who are trying to help, as inept as that help might be.

Hurricane Lane and Moving the Toilet Flange

My Contribution to the Hawaii Bath Remodel
Oh, my aching back. It is time for home improvement consequences. Usually, I don't suddenly engage in an uptick of physical activity. But hauling boards, lifting heavy boxes, loading up my SUV, unloading, bending over, all those things can wreak… more
Those Icky Surprises When Remodeling a Bath

Air Quality 13 at Kona Coffee Haven Yesterday
