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.

Selling a Home to Reluctant Buyers in Sacramento’s Fall Market

September 30, 2014 by Elizabeth

Happy Couple In Front Of Home

Selling a home in Sacramento is more challenging today over our spring market. Many a Sacramento real estate agent is frustrated with the way our real estate market has changed this fall and having a hard time dealing with home buyers. It doesn’t matter if one is a listing agent or a buyer’s agent, you’ve still got to deal with that home buyer if one wants to get into escrow. Selling homes in Sacramento is what I do for a living. Don’t … Continue reading

Security Gaps While Selling Your Sacramento Home

September 29, 2014 by Elizabeth


The occupant of one of my listings leaves her front door unlocked when agents come over to show. She vacates and doesn’t lock the door because she doesn’t want a lockbox on the house. This procedure is not only unsafe, but it completely baffles the agents who show. The buyer’s agents can’t believe a person would not lock the door.

Internet Sacramento real estate agent

Having passed the real estate exam and being entitled to practice real estate for 4 years, however, is no guarantee of knowledge, and it certainly does not reflect experience, yet there is … Continue reading

The Future of Nordstrom, Real Estate and Internet Shopping

shopping, sale, gifts, christmas, x-mas concept - smiling woman in red dress with shopping bags

A sales clerk working in the Eileen Fisher department at Nordstrom at the Westfield Galleria @ Roseville told me that Nordstrom sits on rollers and is not attached to a concrete foundation, a tidbit I did not know. She said the whole building is constructed on top of rollers. I discovered this because in the midst of shopping recently, I suddenly felt the earth move beneath me, and it wasn’t due to Eileen Fisher price tags. The floor was actually moving where I stood. It’s … Continue reading
