During my 40 years in the real estate business, I have had the pleasure of serving extraordinary sellers and buyers who deserve nothing less than my very best. There is no greater honor than to receive referrals from my previous clients, affirming that I have served them well. My commitment to excellence is what continually ranks my performance in the top 1% of real estate agents. I sell millions every year.

I am a Land Park resident in Sacramento and represent buyers and sellers throughout the Sacramento Valley. I am honored that media recognizes me as the #1 local expert for Sacramento short sales, and you can find my book, The Short Sale Savior, at Barnes and Noble. I am a Certified HAFA Specialist and Equator Certified Platinum for short sales. As the top Sacramento short sale agent, I also list, negotiate and sell short sales in Sacramento County, El Dorado County, Placer County and Yolo County.

Josh Amolsch

When it comes to selling Sacramento real estate, no woman or man is an island, especially not on the Elizabeth Weintraub Team at Lyon Real Estate; although, we might very well be rocks — OK, I can’t help but hear Simon & Garfunkel. We are stable. We are comforts to our clients during stressful times. We guide, we inform, we support, and we definitely perform. These are high standards for a real estate agent and, as leader of the team, I … Continue reading

Sacramento Short Sale Approval From US Bank

April 17, 2014 by Elizabeth


Sellers ask me if it’s impossible to get short sale approval from US Bank because so many Sacramento short sale agents seem to encounter difficulties working with US Bank. I would not say that US Bank is harder to work with than any other short sale bank, but the bank’s short sale process is not as streamlined, per se, as other banks. A short sale that might take 4 weeks through Bank of America can easily take 4 months with … Continue reading

Why Real Estate Printing is Dead in Sacramento

Real Estate Printing Sign

The fact is all agents do not sell homes in the same manner, especially those confused by today’s technology; however, many top producers who love technology find it is generally pointless to revert to “old school methods” such as printing four-color flyers and sticking flyers in a box on a sign post, even though they may still retain other dated marketing habits.

I also realize that it’s especially challenging to hire an agent if those same people don’t really understand the profession nor harbor much respect for agents. It’s tricky for some of us to operate in an environment where so many in the public openly despise real estate agents. I think our popularity lies … Continue reading

Will a Sacramento Seller Sell for Less than List Price?

April 14, 2014 by Elizabeth


Buyer’s agents in Sacramento continually hear the question from buyers which, they in turn, pass along to the Sacramento listing agent: Will the seller sell for less? It’s not always phrased in those exact terms, but that’s what everybody wants to know. And that’s the one thing they cannot know and will never know unless they write an offer. For starters, no listing agent worth her salt is about to disclose to anybody for any reason how much her sellers … Continue reading
