Elk Grove Realtor
This Elk Grove ranch with a lake is but a dream property for one lucky buyer. This photo is of the pristine lake which has two islands, a boat dock, a walking bridge and a gorgeous giant rock waterfall. There is a walking path all around it and a very zen bench at one end, where you can simply get lost in a daydream. It is located at 8109 Sloughhouse Rd. Elk Grove, Ca. 95624.
The property has the original barn-red colored dairy barn with white trim. There is also a shop that is fully functional for a working ranch. There are three homes on the property as well as many outbuildings. Ownership was reported as being part of the original Spanish Land Grant, so it has historic significance as well. Affectionately named, “Ochenta Robles,” or the translated version is “80 Oak Trees.” There are so many beautiful different types of oak trees scattered about the property.
Selling real estate in the Wild Wild West reminds we of the old John Wayne movies. He usually played a big-hearted, honest human being (I relate.) Then he always had other people in the films, which were much like authentic characters from the Wild Wild West, who had little moral or ethical code. Sometimes, selling real estate in the south county feels like working in the Wild Wild West.
I love the rural atmosphere of South Sacramento County. There are open green fields of tall grass. You see horses and cows grazing as you drive along the county roads. Large Oak trees are covering the lands here. Beautiful creeks bubble through the valleys and the Consumnes River roars through every winter, and we hope she doesn’t flood. It is like a picture book from the good old days.
On Easter Sunday, I was thinking how buyers searching for a home is like an Easter egg hunt. Home buyers today are having a tough time finding a house due to limited inventory. Kids also struggle trying to find Easter eggs. My family hides eggs so well that they must expend serious effort to find them. This photo is of my great niece and nephew, Alexa and Jordan. You can see in the bird cage hanging in the tree there are a few easter eggs hidden inside. They are getting ready to hunt!
Buyers are often looking for homes on Zillow or driving around looking at for sale signs. There are many ways to look for homes for sale, such as the MLS. Experienced Realtors may have a few off-market properties that with careful searching they can uncover. This is why I say buyers searching for a home is like an easter egg hunt. The homes are sometimes hidden out there so you just have to look much deeper than just Zillow or Craig’s list.
Do you love farm life in Sacramento County? This time of year the fields remind this Sacramento Realtor of the green hills of Wales. I remember the sheep on the hillsides from a vacation there and the color of green was almost fluorescent.
Some people don’t know this about me, but I live in the rural south county area of Sacramento. The land and the trees here are so beautiful. There is nothing as pretty as the fruitless cherry trees in full pink blossom, all the way down my long driveway. There is a gorgeous canopy of large oak trees on the other side of the driveway, by the flowing creek. The brown fence blends into the landscape and feels so natural. Plus, my long driveway offers so much privacy.
Meet Weintraub & Wallace of the Sierra Oaks office of RE/MAX Gold. Yes, we have merged our teams to create a Super Team of Realtors in Sacramento. If Lyon had encouraged JaCi Wallace, she and I might have stayed at Lyon Real Estate. But as it is, she was already at RE/MAX Gold, after relocating a few years ago, and happy enough not to budge. Since she was not returning to Lyon, it meant my team and I would move to RE/MAX.
But that is not the only reason to join RE/MAX nor to team up to form Weintraub & Wallace. RE/MAX Gold was founded 25 years ago with just two offices and 40 agents. Today, the company has 63 locations, and over 1,350 of the industry’s most productive agents. Our new location is at 3620 Fair Oaks Boulevard, near the intersection of Fair Oaks Boulevard and Watt Avenue, but we are also free to work from the Midtown office next door to Waterboy on Capitol Avenue.
