Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent


My Last 3 Weeks in Hawaii Were Very Productive

This particular trip to Hawaii I did not make it to the beach. The days I had planned to go, it rained. But there will be other days and other trips. It is OK. I was able to focus on my Sacramento real estate business and missed all of the cold weather and rainstorms in Sacramento. While I initially thought my last 3 weeks in Hawaii were relatively slow in terms of market conditions, I actually accomplished quite a bit.

Looking at MLS, I see I listed / relisted 8 homes, put 3 into pending status and working on a couple more offers. Closed about a half dozen, and scheduled a bunch of appointments to visit sellers next week for pre-listing inspections.

I only turned down 2 listings. Not because I wasn't in Sacramento but because the sellers were not a good fit for my personality. One guy demanded a price way higher than he's ever gonna get, said he has bipolar tendancies, lives in Thailand and is suing his former agent. The other couple had too much drama coming out the wazoo and one of them allegedly is addicted to meth or coke. No, don't need that in my life

Dealing with Icky Gnat Swarms in Hawaii
By the time I called the electric company, workers were at my house in mere minutes. I don't know if they have a guy who lives near by or what, but boy was that amazingly fast. When my power went out during a rainstorm in Sacramento, hours passed… more
Ready for Hawaii Big Island Bird Photos?
This is one of those blogs that can go on forever, and it sort of does. So many photos to choose from to feature in my blog, and they have to be pretty good before I'll select them. At least you need to be able to see what kind of bird it is, don't… more
The Lizards and Geckos From the Island of Hawai'i
Obviously, I cannot shoot a photo of every single type of lizards and geckos in Hawaii. But there are common types you will see almost everywhere. Ordinarily, you do not see them at a resort. I stayed at and visited almost all of the resorts north… more
Sunset Photographs from Hawai'i Island
We have certainly no shortage of photographic opportunities on Hawai'i Island. You never know what you might see when you are alert and holding a camera. In future blogs, you will see more photos. I'm trying to group them into categories, as I see… more
University of Nations Interesting Place to Visit in Kona
In my circle of friends are a couple of missionaries from Canada who volunteer at the University of Nations here in Kona. Two of the nicest, sweetest and most caring individuals I have ever known, but then again, I can't say I know any other… more
Cannot Pick on Ring Door Bell Users Anymore
Even my hairdresser installed a Ring doorbell. She was very excited to show me videos of UPS guys dropping off packages on her cellphone. This seemed like an odd reason to fork out two hundred bucks for a video doorbell. But then, when you think… more
Finally, a Decent Up-Close Gold Dust Day Gecko Photo
While an iPhone will work in a pinch to snap photos of flowers, people and other stationary things, wildlife is a whole 'nother story. I mean, I can sit on my lanai for hours and watch the geckos but try taking a picture of one. They won't wait for… more
Buying a Paddle Board is a Personal Experience
When you buy a new car, most people would test drive the vehicle prior to purchase, right? So, I think it only makes sense to try out a new paddle board before buying. All paddle boards are not the same. When you don't really know anything about a… more
Which Do You Prefer: Charcoal or Gas Grill?
It seems that everything we have at our house in Hawaii is so much nicer than the stuff at our house in Sacramento. But that's probably because it's newer. My husband keeps telling me that I live in Hawaii now, but I really don't. Just part of the… more
