Full-Service Realtors Means Sometimes Going Beyond With Service

Full-service Realtors

Full-service Realtors in Sacramento offer sellers so much more than just higher prices, fewer renegotiations in the middle of escrow and expert analytical skills. We sometimes have to go beyond what most people expect with service and sharing our knowledge. Oh, we’ve had it hammered into us that we can’t give legal advice and can’t give tax advice, anything that departs from our skillset of real estate and that for which we are licensed. After all, we are not accountants nor lawyers. We are full-service Realtors. read more

Elizabeth Weintraub Still Lyon Real Estate Top Producer Recipient

Top 1% at Lyon Real Estate, Elizabeth Weintraub is in front row wearing pink.

Holy cow, I can’t believe how busy I’ve been that I have spaced out making a formal announcement in my blog about two recognitions I received last week as a Lyon Real Estate top producer. The first recognition was for 15 years at Lyon Real Estate. This place is the longest I have worked anywhere in my life. No joke. I got my start in real estate as a title policy typist in 1974, so that gives me 44 years in this business. At the time, it was just a job to get me out of the mountains in Denver and back into civilization. read more

Elizabeth Weintraub Wins #2 at Lyon Real Estate Awards 2018

Lyon Real Estate Awards 2018

Elizabeth Weintraub wins #2 at Lyon Real Estate Awards: Amy McMullan, Elizabeth Weintraub, Josh Amolsch, Dan Tharp, Shaundra Bradley and . . . Barbara Dow.

Seems once I made it into the top 1% at Lyon Real Estate, I end up ranking every year either as #2 or #3 in the company. We have about 1,000 agents at Lyon, so it’s not an insignificant accomplishment to make into the top 1% at the Lyon Real Estate Awards. Only nine agents achieve that milestone every year. Although, we used to win better prizes. Over the last 5 years or so, we just get a huge honkin’ vase, and now I have too many of those.

Honestly, I have too many awards, period. What do you do with them? I suppose they could be used as flower vases, but I don’t know if you’d want your name on them. I spotted a few awards our relocation department won, and those were pretty cool. From where we sat, they resembled figurines with a globe on top. Like a Golden Globe. You could use them to clobber an intruder. read more

Week of Highlights for a Sacramento Realtor

highlights for a sacramento realtorWhat a busy week of highlights for a Sacramento Realtor. Have you ever wondered what a top producer does all week? Well, I managed to take two new listings and sell them, with all that entails. Fast strategies, professional photos, tweaking, uploading, writing, managing and publishing last Wednesday. That included promoting both listings at my midtown Lyon Real Estate office meeting and obtaining preview comments from touring agents. Which of course I passed on to my respective sellers.

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes for a listing agent. Answering buyer calls, calling buyer’s agents, discussing the property, details, providing suggestions for offers. On Wednesday, for example, I worked from 7 AM to 8 PM; until taking off for Ella Dining Room and Bar for Valentine’s Day with my husband. Our main course arrived on plates reeking of bleach. The bleach smell was enormous. We both noticed it. When we brought this to the attention of the waiter, we were told perhaps we were unaccustomed to the smell of truffles. read more

Success as a Real Estate Agent Depends on Your Uniqueness

success as a real estate agent

Success as a real estate agent means being yourself.

My elevator speech about success as a real estate agent is not canned, nor do I consider it really an elevator speech. I can condense just about anything down to one or two sentences, though, so I tend to wing it. For example, when I go to a seller’s home for a listing appointment, I conduct much of my interaction based on reactions from the seller. No identical appointments. No canned presentations. Although I do complete my agent visual inspection during every first visit, and I take copious notes. Carrying a clipboard and writing notes is my method of operation. In fact, you can get into just about any private event by carrying a clipboard and making notes. read more
