Sacramento Real Estate Agent, CA (40 years experience)
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Elk Grove, CA.
When faced with the possibility of selling my home on a short sale, I did my homework and came up with the person I felt was an expert in the field. I found her in Elizabeth Weintraub! Being a professional salesperson myself, I found it refreshing to be able to deal with someone of such high caliber. During the short sale process, we had two buyers that had fallen off for various reasons, but being a very determined individual, Elizabeth and her team were able to secure another solid buyer in less than 48 hours and was able to continue the process to completion. I had already referred Elizabeth and her superior team to a relative and would not hesitate to refer them again. Their attention to detail and knowledge made all the difference in the world in completing the sale of my home in the most expeditious and painless manner possible.

Through no fault of the seller on this short sale, the first buyer developed cold feet. The second buyers lost the buyers for their home. But the third buyer was indeed the lucky person. I appreciate your referrals, George, and I thank you for posting such a sweet review.

Elizabeth was knowledgable, responsive, and very easy to work with. She set expectations about how the process of my house sale would go and delivered every step of the way. I would recommend her in an instant to family and friends in need of an agent. She made the process painless.

It's typically a two-way street in real estate; I'm very fortunate to work with smart and cooperative sellers like you, Ms. Broyles. You made my job pleasurable, and I thank you for choosing me as your agent. I hope to work with you again!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Elizabeth is an amazing agent, and I highly recommend her. She is a true real estate expert. We decided to short sale our home July 2014. My husband and I had always been hesitant to short sale because we had heard how challenging the process is. Elizabeth found a buyer for our home within three days, and we closed escrow within three months. She made the short sale process easy and stress free. She knows her stuff!
She is very responsive. Anytime I reached out to her, she was available or she would respond back quickly (usually within minutes!). She kept us in the loop throughout the process, and provided great guidance along the way making our transition to our new home very smooth and an exciting experience verses a stressful one.
Her assistant Shaundra is also awesome. She too was very helpful, and always followed up.
My only regret is that I didn’t find Elizabeth sooner!

Shaundra is awesome. She rocks. I spent years looking for the right counterpart to be my right-hand person, and she is the best, hands down. You deserve only the best in life, Amanda, because it's so short. And I don't mean that in a short sale kinda way. Thank you for your sweet review.

Ms. Weintraub helped us with the short sale of our home. I found her information online and I am very glad that I did. She was very professional and very knowledgeable to include Ms. Bradley. As it is our first time selling a
house, we had a lot of questions and concerns which she handled correctly
and truthfully. She told me that she could sell the house almost immediately after being listed and she did. I am located in the midwest and our house is
in Sacramento but she made the process very easy and stress-free for us. She
is very good in communicating back and forth with us through phone calls or
email. She and her team saved us from the financial burden of our home. If you want to have the same experience, I would definitely recommend
you to go through her

It's working with clients like you, Jonas, that makes me one of the luckiest and happiest real estate agents in Sacramento. Thank you for posting a review.

Well, we started to work with Elizabeth after getting nothing accomplished with another agent regarding our short sale. From the beginning, Elizabeth stated "we will get this done." I must say I doubted it would get done, because of our poor experience with another agent, but we completed the sale. Elizabeth contacted us immediately to report the great news and I couldn't have been happier. Please use Elizabeth and her impressive team (Shaundra) and she will make it happen for you as well.

I know it's really hard in the beginning to trust an agent you don't know, especially after your horrible experience with the previous agent, but I was confident we would close your escrow, and I like to be right all of the time -- just ask my husband. :)

Elizabeth Weintraub "walked the extra mile" for my wife and me. I contacted Elizabeth and asked her to represent us as we went through the process of a short sale on our home. Little did we know that the peculiarity of our home mortgage was such that our mortgage company played by different rules than other banks. What should have been a quick slam dunk of a sale became a two year ordeal that resembled a horrible roller coaster ride. Through all of this, Elizabeth remained optimistic and actively worked to sell our home. There were numerous times I just wanted to give up. Yet, she remained loyal and encouraged us. She said she "never gives up" - and she was faithful to her words. She didn't give up on us. We finally sold our house.
I've worked with other realtors, but often didn't feel they were watching my back. With Elizabeth, my experience was different, She kept us informed throughout the process and worked diligently with the banks, other realtors, and escrow companies. She eased our minds and hesitations by letting us know what to expect. If you want a person who will represent you and your interests fairly, I commend with highest accolades- Elizabeth Weintraub. Her loyalty, seasoned knowledge of and expertise in handling short sales, her extensive network of professionals and team, and most of all her code of ethics will serve you well. She is the best!

I am so thankful and grateful for wonderful clients like you and Helen. You make my job, regardless of how difficult, an utter joy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
AWFUL experience with this agent. I called to enquire about a home that she has listed. My wife and I were going to be in the area and have been looking to purchase a home. We own several properties and have purchased a dozen or so times over the last decade...always working independently. We are not agents. At first she tried to have us go look at a plethora of homes with one of her fellow agents. When I told her that we do not need an agent and only want to see this particular property, she flat out refused. Her whole demeanor changed and she said "That's not how this works! You have to have an agent or you're not getting in to see a home". She was quite rude and had a very condescending tone. In my years of purchasing real estate, I have never been treated this poorly. It feel bad for the home owners who entrust her to represent their property. If she is desperate to be representing people then she needs to be a professional, allow us to view the property, and if she is worth her weight, perhaps we would have had her show us others. Too bad...

I am so terribly sorry you had a bad experience with a fellow real estate agent in East Sacramento but I am afraid whomever you talked to was certainly not me as this is not how am I perceived by my clients nor how I respond to callers. At the moment, I have a small cottage for sale in East Sacramento, and I would run over there in a heartbeat to show to any potential buyers. I cannot imagine treating a potential buyer so poorly, and I wonder who you talked to now.

We needed someone to help us sell 2 rental properties we had and my husband chose her based on articles she had written on the web. We are SO lucky that she agreed to represent us! We thought we were going to have to do some fairly major remodeling to one property but she advised us not to. That property sold the same day the sign went up and we saved all the remodeling costs. The other property had been majorly damaged by a long-time tenant and we were in despair about even being able to sell it at all but Elizabeth came through and that property closed just 4 weeks after we first met Elizabeth. Incredible! She constantly kept us informed about what was happening during the whole process so we always knew where we stood. Her real estate expertise and knowledge about selling in this area definitely resulted in the best outcome we could have had. We would without reservation recommend her to anyone.

Thank you, Christie and Bill, for posting your review of our 2 transactions. You know, I realize that you probably think you were lucky in finding me, but what you don't really know is that I am very lucky to work with the clients I work with as well. It's a two-way street! :)
