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.

The iPhone 6 Plus and John Oliver

iPhone 6 Plus

Yes, this Sacramento real estate agent caved in, succumbed, heeded the siren call, like a blind mouse chasing a pied piper, I bought into the excitement over the new iPhone 6Plus. I have been assimilated and cannot resist. Not only that, but I’ve been staring at my tiny little iPhone ever since I bought the 5S and gave up my beautiful, glossy shiny Galaxy in order to turn my life completely over to Apple for simplicity and efficiency. That was a horrible … Continue reading

A Funeral in Midtown and My Back-Story to Harold and Maude

September 16, 2014 by Elizabeth

funeral harold and maude

Some people might call it a Harold-and-Maude-syndrome because that’s where I initially got the idea that I should start going to funerals. I first saw that movie in a renovated theater in Minneapolis as an advance screening premiere. This was back in the early 1970s when movie theaters didn’t tell you the name of the movie you were going to see as a premiere. You just hoped you got a good movie. People are much more demanding today. The velvet drapes … Continue reading

How Home Buyers Can Insult Sacramento Listing Agents

Buyers Getting Keys

Before I get into the reasons about how home buyers can openly insult Sacramento listing agents, let me state for the record that there are agents in Sacramento who don’t care about respect or integrity, they just want the money.

I’ve discovered there are some weird misperceptions about home stagers. The first is some people tend to believe that Sacramento real estate agents offer this service, when little is further from the truth. I wonder if they get this idea from HGTV?

Hi, Elizabeth, I Am Looking at Your Website . . .

September 13, 2014 by Elizabeth


The caller starts out: “Hi, Elizabeth, I am looking at your website,” to which my immediate response lately has been to cut them off at the pass: “Well, get the hell off of it and don’t come back.” You might think whoa, what if that caller was a potential client, but I assure you it is not. It’s a telemarketer who heard Sacramento real estate agents have deep pockets and, trust me, she wasn’t looking at my website, she was staring at … Continue reading
