“The entire experience went very smoothly. I was informed regarding the sale as items came up. This was a very positive and proactive approach that I very much appreciated.”

Dear Elizabeth,I wanted to thank you for a truly amazing job. A few years ago I decided to research Sacramento area for a top agent and I came across your name. Even though we did not list at that time I was super impressed with your energy and professionalism at that time. So when it came time to sell, You were the only person I needed to call. You had already won my business with your actions and professionalism back then. I could not have chosen a better agent! the response we received was off the hook and your professionalism and excellence exceeded even the very high levels I already thought about you! Thank you so much for the great job. I can tell you its very rare in all my interactions with professionals over the years, have I ever been so pleased with the service I received. I would recommend you to anybody in a heartbeat!Best Wishes,Roy Nash
“We interviewed three realtors to sell our house. The first two recommended setting the price in the mid $600s. We were about to go with this price until Elizabeth came and recommended $750k for an “as-is” sale. Within a few days of the listing, she got us a full price offer at $750K. We highly recommend Elizabeth and her team.”
Eric and Susan Marvel“Thank you SO MUCH for making this ‘long strange trip’ as painless as possible! This whole process has been a real emotional roller coaster but you came in and really made it all happen smoothly and amazingly easy for us (not to mention FAST!). Susan and I are sincerely and hugely appreciative of all the excellent work and support by you and your amazing team! We are absolutely thrilled that we found you to guide us through the foreign and challenging sequence of events that has lead to this positive outcome for us and the young buyers of my family home. Your sincere emotional investment in helping families in transition (sellers and buyers) is truly obvious and we respect that aspect of who you are very much.Zillow review – ABSOLUTELY! Is there such thing as a “10” on Zillow?Again – so many thanks for all you have done on our behalf!Best Warm Wishes,”

“Elizabeth is very professional and knowledgeable agent. I will recommend her to all my friends. We were happy to work with her.”
“Elizabeth and her team were wonderful when I was selling my house. I am in the military and got orders and had to move short notice. However, that was not a challenge for Elizabeth. I did have a few buyers that fell through and when I was about to give up and take it off the market and just rent it out Elizabeth did not give up. She reassured me that we would get the house sold and did not let me down. Elizabeth and her team are very professional and I would recommend her to everyone.”

“Elizabeth is the best hands down! We found her and her team by researching the best agents in Elk Grove and came across her profile. As first time sellers, we were pretty nervous about the whole process, but Elizabeth came in and reassured us that everything would be okay. She made everything happen quickly, efficiently, and seamlessly. We never expected our house to sell and escrow to close as quickly as it did.
The whole process from start to finish lasted only 11 DAYS!!! Thankfully Elizabeth was there to guide us through the entire process. She made sure we understood every step and was extremely responsive and attentive to all of our questions. We absolutely loved working with Elizabeth and definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell! You will not be disappointed with the Weintraub team!”

“Elizabeth Weintraub provided the highest level of professional service and a fast sale of our unique home. She receives our highest recommendation!”
Elizabeth did a wonderful job of helping us with the sale of our home. Her extensive knowledge and experience really paid off in the negotiations of the sale. Thank you!
Bruce and Mary Bayley
Elizabeth was amazing! Our house sold in one week at $7000 over asking. She constantly kept us updated on the sale’s progress and always fought for our best interests. What more can I say?
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.
Elizabeth was very professional and knowledgeable about the whole process,she negotiated with my interests in mind and was very accesible and responded quickly to any concerns or questions I had.
Ms. Weintraub is AMAZING!! . . . As I was searching for a realitor, luckily I ran across Ms. Weintraub’s name. She walked us through the process, step by step, guided us through the myriad of details and obstacles regarding this process. After 5 months we finally were able to sale our home and I must say that she definitely was the main reason we continued with this process. There were several times we almost said “forget it” but she talked us through the process, was very responsive to our needs and “fought’ for us when the banks decided to play “hardball”. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ms. Weintraub. If you are looking for someone to listen, care, tailor things for your needs and most importantly get things done…give her a call!! She is the only person you need!! Her team at Lyon is amazing!! Thank you – we have regained our lives!!
Buying or selling real estate is a big decision and a complicated process. Buyers and sellers both need an advocate on their side that knows the in and outs of real estate. I was apprehensive about the sale of my property, but after meeting with Elizabeth I felt at ease. She was a true advocate, giving me advice and tips and negotiating for me during the entire process.
We received an offer, for more than the asking price, within the first couple of days the property went on the market. It looked like it was going to be an easy and fast closing, but then as often happens, there were some glitches along the way. This is where Elizabeth’s experience and knowledge really shined. She gave the buyer a helpful nudge to get their ducks in a row, while arranging for a backup offer, just in case things fell through. She even went as far as to help the backup buyers agent create the offer.
Turned out the original buyer was able to get things together and the deal went through. The stress of the real estate transaction and the stress of owning a rental property are both behind me now. I couldn’t have done it without Elizabeth’s knowledge and professionalism. She is also a pleasure to work with and an all around great lady!
Elizabeth and her team helped us buy and sell our property and it has been a great and exciting experience for us! She is an expert in the process and knows and understands all the requirements that need to be followed. Elizabeth responded immediately every time I had a question or wanted an update. I never had to wait for an answer. Elizabeth and her partner, Barbara come with my highest recommendation. They are simply the BEST!!
After meeting with three other realtors, I decided to work with Elizabeth. I found the process of selling my home to be stress free (other than packing). Based on her advice, I moved my family out before listing. It was tough but worth it. As we came down to the listing date, Elizabeth got on the phone and helped me schedule handyman, pest inspector, carpet cleaners as I was thoroughly overwhelmed. I hired a stager based on her advice as well and it was worth it. The listing price seemed to high too me but Elizabeth saw something in my house and the market that I did not. We were actually down in Orange County during the selling phase and I did not have to think about the process once. I highly recommend Elizabeth if you are selling the house in the sacramento area.
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!
Well, we started to work with Elizabeth after getting nothing accomplished with another agent regarding our 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.
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
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!
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.
Elizabeth is the best real estate I ever had pleasure working with. Prior to working with her, I listed my rental property in Elk Grove with a different agent. After 3 months of no activities, I switched to Elizabeth. Then she sold it in a month. I wish I knew earlier. Thanks Elizabeth!!!
Professional, responsive, accessible and customer-service oriented. Elizabeth sold our house in 16 days and we did the entire process remotely as we live out-of-state. Overall a great experience.
My experience with Elizabeth and her team was top notch. My circumstances were trying and her team was responsive, informative, and advocated for me as the seller in this case. I will return without hesitation for any future real estate needs.
Elizabeth and her team did an outstanding job in both selling our house and getting us into a new one! I have to admit selling our home during a sluggish real estate market was at times extremely stressful and often discouraging. There was a time when I wanted drop the price on my home to show that we were motivated but Elizabeth talked us out of compromising and told us to stick to our guns. And are we glad that we did. Elizabeth brought all of her decades of experience to bear on our situation and walked us through the valleys and peaks of selling and buying. I would highly, highly recommend Elizabeth and her team to anyone wanting to sell or buy. When I sell again there is only one person I will call Elizabeth Weintraub! She’s the woman!! 🙂
We chose Elizabeth because of her extensive experience in the Sacramento real estate market and we were not disappointed. She was everything she advertised and more. I highly recommend Elizabeth and her great staff.
I had a very trying experience with two realtors when it came time to sell our family home during an estate administration. Then I found Elizabeth. The third time was more than a charm!!! She held my hand and never once made me feel like she didn’t have time to listen. She explained the process and assured me there were no “stupid questions” that I could ask. She was right. She met every expectation, no she exceeded every expectation. Communication, communication, communication, friendliness, and patience. I felt very well taken care of. I would highly recommend her.
Excellent service especially when we did it long distance from san diego/home was in sacramento. She was always quick to response and very knowlegable in this market. I would highly recommend her to anyone that need help with real estate in the sacramento area
We have found Elizabeth Weintraub to be a great realtor. She was very easy to talk to. She really listened to our needs and was very accommodating to our time restraints. She has a great depth of local knowledge, and also a great deal of experience. We have always gotten in contact with her easily, she was very responsive to our many questions. Elizabeth has clever negotiation skills and got a great deal for us on our house. I would highly recommend her as your realtor.
Elizabeth was amazing in every aspect of selling our house. Not only was she able to get us an offer $7000 over our asking price within ONE WEEK of our house being on the market, but she constantly had our backs during every phase of the negotiations and was constantly in touch throughout the entire process (as out-of-state sellers, this was very important to us). If you want to sell your home and get top dollar in the process, call Elizabeth Weintraub!!
Elizabeth assisted us with a short sale. From the start, her knowledge and professionalism was unmatched. Throughout this process, Elizabeth keep us in the loop and always answered any questions in a timely manner. All in all the experience we had with Elizabeth and her team was more than I could have ever expected. I am very happy with the results and I will definitely choose Elizabeth for all future transactions.
Elizabeth did an outstanding job – she dedicated a great deal of time to the sale of my home. She was very knowledgeable about my neighborhood and local home values and very honest about pricing. She was persistent and always on top of it – she always responded quickly to my calls and emails.. I am so glad I found her – it made the sale of my home so much easier.
My experience had its ups and downs. The sale was complicated. Kudos to Elizabeth with whom I had almost daily contact. The team that works with her were professional, giving me an overall sense of assurance that my property was indeed in the right hands!
David Anderson and Barbara Friesen
It was a good experience. We felt very informed each step of the way. Elizabeth was great to work with. She kept us in the loop regarding comments after open houses.
I want to thank you for all of your hard work and efficiency in the recent transaction we closed at 6209 Jefjen Way in Elk Grove.
This transaction went extremely smooth from the time we entered contract through the end of closing. Your professionalism, knowledge and sense of urgency made everything flow with ease and I greatly appreciate that!
Additionally, you were very caring in the process and that means a lot in the real estate market today. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Elizabeth did everything she could do to make this sale possible. She makes sure her clients are happy. I feel I got the best agent in the business. I will recommend her and use her for any future buy or sale.
Sona and Lino Delgadillo
Ms. Weintraub was amazing! Her professionalism, diligence and knowledge was 1st class. She guided us through this emotional process with understanding and care. I was very happy she was on our side. Thank you Elizabeth — you have helped us move forward.
Elizabeth was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. Our [West Sacramento] house sold in a week at our asking price. All went very smoothly. Thanks.
Elizabeth Weintraub was such a pleasure to work with. She made sure that she keeps me well informed and answer my questions in a very timely fashion. She made my short sale experience as painless as possible. Kudos to Elizabeth and her team . . . She was right on target and delivered. I am very pleased. Will definitely refer her. She met and exceeded my expectations. She is very good at what she does. Thank you Elizabeth and Team for all your help.
My experience with Elizabeth was positive from start to finish. Not only was she correct that my house would sell in a week, but her prediction of my net escrow was right on the money. She was always punctual at answering questions along the way. Elizabeth made a potentially stressful experience easier to deal with.
Brandon Duff and Erin Sullivan
Elizabeth was great! Very professional and considerate. She made the process painless and simple.
Arthur and Jocelyn David
Elizabeth Weintraub was an excellent real estate agent. She made this long and frustrating transaction easy for us, and was always prompt with our questions and concerns.
Fernando and Evagelina Genera
Elizabeth was efficient, professional and knowledgable in handling our short sale. She always kept us well informed on the status of our sale. She clearly knew the short sale process and completed the sale in record time (3 months). We were fortunate to have her on our side against the bank. I wold highly recommend her to my friends and associates.
I wanted to pay high compliments to Elizabeth and Shaundra for helping me sell my home. Elizabeth really made it all run smoothly for me. I cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth. Thank you.
Elizabeth is truly a professional REALTOR®. Works hard and above all very knowledgable. She will be referred as how she was referred to us. Likewise, due recognition to the members of her team. Good job, Elizabeth!
Job well done. Elizabeth was an experienced professional and always on top of her service to her client, good customer support and focus. I was happy I selected / chose her to be my agent. Excellent service and friendly attitude.
Rose Mary Swart
Elizabeth’s years of hands-on experience and her ability to connect buyers and sellers clearly worked to our advantage as she handled the sale of two homes in Sacramento for us. She did all of this with us living out-of-state and both transactions were seamless. There is no replacement for Elizabeth’s experience, her great team who also kept in touch with us, the network of related professionals that she has created to help with transactions and her unflappable attention to getting the job done! I have referred her to a friend who is extremely happy with the outcome of her work with Elizabeth and I will continue to recommend her to any buyer or seller. She is in the top 1 percent of realtors in the area because she works hard for her clients. Elizabeth exceeded our expectations throughout. Thank you Elizabeth.
From the first instance of meeting Elizabeth, she impressed me. Absolutely knowledgeable, courteous, caring, and honest. ( for a Real Estate Agent… practically unheard of, but true! ) She answered EVERY email (very quickly) and answered my phone calls (no answering machine). I thought my home would be a tough sell… and Elizabeth got a BIDDING WAR going for it. My home sold for over asking, and made me a very happy client. I would absolutely recommend Elizabeth as your Real Estate Agent. She will work for YOU. You will not have any regrets. At all.
When I first decided to put my condo on the market as a short sale I had so many people giving me advice, some good and some bad. I was relieved when I found Elizabeth, with in a week she was at my house taking photos and placing my condo on the market. She was there with me for the whole process. I never felt overwhelmed because I knew she would have the answer. She is excellent at following through and keeping you informed. I could send her an email or call her and her response was always prompt. She is professional. Once you meet her you can tell she takes pride in what she does and in putting her clients first. One could not go wrong when choosing her and her support staff in sellling their home.
Elizabeth was phenomenal! She made the process of my short sale go quickly and smoothly; it was actually easy and enjoyable. Hard to believe with a short sale! I’d recommend Elizabeth, most certainly.
Mr. and Mrs. Zuuleta
When we decided to short sale our home, we looked and prayed for a good realtor that would be able to help us. God surely answered our prayer when we found Elizabeth Weintraub! She was able to sell our home without difficulty as she promised. Thanks Elizabeth! Thanks to Shaundra also for all your help!
Seller in Lincoln Crossing
Elizabeth was excellent to work with. She kept me apprised of the short sale process of the house through every step of the way. She was very detailed, knowledgeable, and made sure I had all the information I needed before making decisions. While there were some difficult hurdles along the way, Elizabeth managed to stay positive and ultimately closed the house in the nick of time. It was certainly a pleasure to work with Elizabeth and her entire team.
There is a reason that Elizabeth sells so much real estate. She knows the ins and outs of the business. Her responses are quick and she know how to soothe angst as well as keep things moving. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help in purchasing or selling property!
Joey in Tahoe Park
AMAZING!! That is the only word I can use to describe Elizabeth, she was honest, knowledgeable, and responsive; she truly saved my short sale. If you need a home sold you MUST MUST MUST use her. My deal was very complicated, I was living in New York selling a property in Sacramento and it was a great experience. She left me at ease and was such a pleasure to work with. I do not have enough praise for her and her staff. I would give her an A+++++ for all she did.
JG in Natomas
We didn’t think a short sale was a possibility given our two lenders and prior communication with them. We contacted Elizabeth thinking it was a long shot, and not only did she express her confidence that it would all go through, everything she guessed would happen, did. We got multiple offers within only two days of showing. She guided us on the importance of choosing a buyer who would stick with it through it all, and closed right when she predicted we would have. Between her and her transaction coordinator, they took care of lender needs exceptionally fast, as well as addressing our questions and fears through the process. They ensured we didn’t get into any messy scenarios the banks may have led us into. The paperwork was minimal, so we weren’t faxing/emailing documents with signatures constantly. Without a doubt, she will be our trusted agent for any and all future real estate needs, as well as our recommended agent for anyone that we hear is buying or selling. She took a weight off of our shoulders that felt insurmountable…that’s a priceless feat. Thank you, Elizabeth. Sincerely, JG in Natomas
Jayme in Carmichael
Finding Elizabeth was the best thing that could have happened to us! Entered into a stressful short sale and Elizabeth was there to guide the way, being extremely responsive and knowledgable. She is patient and understanding, always moving forward to take care of her client. Thank you Elizabeth! 🙂
Karen in Elk Grove
I count myself so lucky for “finding” Elizabeth. I was afraid I was out of options and had little hope that I would even be considered for a short sale. Not only did Elizabeth get me qualified, she listed and sold my home in less time than most “regular” sales take! She made the process easy – her response to questions is immediate, and there is nothing this woman does not know…she is the absolute best, a true professional. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough for what she did. I would recommend to her to anyone. Look no further if you’re searching for an Agent – you won’t find anyone better or more qualified. Elizabeth – thank you! 🙂
Steve in Natomas
Elizabeth and her team were wonderful every step of the way helping to guide us through the process of listing our home for a short sale.
She came in very confident and she backed it up 100%
She kept us calm, gave us advice and was really an anchor for us throughout.
I cannot stress enough how pleased you will be if you choose her for your listing.
Laura in Galt
I definitely chose the right person to handle my short sale and I am so grateful. I came across Elizabeth on Zillow, and contacted her with general questions about short sales. She was so patient and informative and I wasn’t even her client…yet. A few days later I contacted her again, but this time needing her to handle my short sale. She was so amazingly prompt in answering all my questions, always pleasant, helpful and understanding. The actual short sale process itself seemed easy, thanks to her expertise and professionalism. My short sale was approved, and I am so glad I had Elizabeth to handle it for me. I highly recommend her!
Peggy in Sacramento
I am so appreciative and grateful to Elizabeth and her team. Unfortunately my short sale process with the 1st lender was horrific, but Elizabeth and her team navigated, persevered, negotiated and stayed on top of them to ensure they were doing their job. They were always available, patient and very prompt in answering my many questions via e-mail, or by telephone. Elizabeth with her wonderful experience also chose the perfect buyer who was very patient and kind to someone in my current financial position. I feel very fortunate and blessed that I had her and Shaundra to handle and negotiate this long, tedious process. I would highly recommend her and her team; they are very caring, warm, professional and exceptional in their profession.
Monique in Rancho Cordova
Elizabeth Weintraub and her team are amazing! From start to finish, our experience was handled with precise expertise and profound professionalism, which made everything feel at ease. I would recommend Elizabeth and the Weintraub team anytime. We were very pleased with their service.
Hollywood Park Home Seller
Elizabeth and her team were superb! I recently closed on selling my home with Elizabeth. She made the process of a short sale, which I was completely new to, seem so easy, smooth, and worry-less. After all the horror stories I had heard about short sales, this was a breeze! We received a cash offer for the asking price after just one “open showing” and the bank approvals were a breeze. It takes time to get all the approvals, but Elizabeth knows how to get through the process as quickly and easily as possible. I would highly recommend her and her team, and in fact I already have!
I really appreciated having Elizabeth on my team. Incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy and always answered calls / emails / texts rapidly. Elizabeth is very much a go-getter and I’ve recommended her many times since April 2012 when I closed on my house.
Nicole Mayer, Sacramento Pocket
Elizabeth not only met my expectations, she exceeded them a hundred times over. She is the definition of a true professional. I can’t imagine a better agent out there. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you!
Anni Bonfils, Roseville
My experience with Elizabeth selling my home was positive from the beginning to closing. I would recommend her to anybody.
William Swart and Rose Mary Swart
The Elizabeth Weintraub Team are very efficient and guided us through to a successful outcome on a problematic property. Elizabeth is THE REALTOR to have when you need a “Short Sale Savior.” We have already referred her to a neighbor who was upside down in her property. She had the same success!
Armarando & Jacqueline Bautista
Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable. She responded almost immediately upon any contact, email, phone, etc. We are referring her to a couple friends. Elizabeth guided us through the entire long process!!
Laura and Antonio Russomanno
Elizabeth was very thorough and timely in every step of our short sale experience. If we had any questions, she responded immediately to our voice mails / emails. When there were any bumps in the road, Elizabeth was on top of it taking care of them.
Jennifer and Edward Hightower
Elizabeth made herself available to answer our many questions 24 / 7 — even on her vacations. I felt she was our advocate and genuinely looking out for our best interests.
soopercooper, Rancho Cordova
Elizabeth Weintraub successfully sold my townhome for less that what I owed and I felt confident in her abilities from the first day. A little background first. I purchased a townhome in a suburb of Sacramento as a primary residence. I purchased it with no money down on a 2/1 ARM (so I had two mortgages) and refinanced at the end of the first 2-years. I lived in it for 3 years until I converted it to a rental property when I moved out of state. It was my rental property for 2 years. Needless to say, I was not in a good position to benefit from the government programs. I purchased just before the peak, so the value of the property during the short sale was about 75% less than what I had purchased it for.
After failed attempts at loan modifications with BofA, I put my townhome on the market as a short sale in September 2010 with another agent. I got one offer in 6 months and was not impressed with the agent’s abilities, responsiveness, or concern with my situation. Elizabeth was a completely different story. I sent her an email introducing myself and included a brief description of my situation and the property; when she called me the next day, she had done her research and already had a detailed selling history of my townhome as well as the listing from the other agent.
Considering the state of home values in the Sacramento area, especially townhomes, Elizabeth was not my agent solely for the paycheck. She wants to help those in difficult situations, such as mine. She fought for me with BofA and got them to forgive both my first and second. Elizabeth is well-versed and experienced in the short sale process, and takes the time to explain details if you want to know them.
The only reason I rated her responsiveness as ‘good’ instead of ‘immediate’ is because I didn’t expect her to respond right away. When I emailed her, she responded the same day. When I called her mobile, she would usually pick up. If I left a voicemail, I heard from her by the next day. For the number of clients she has, I would rate her responsiveness as five stars if it meant ‘excellent’ instead of ‘immediate’.
Elizabeth Weintraub worked hard for me because she enjoys what she does, has the requisite tools and knows how to use them, and is an advocate for her clients.
We would highly recommend Elizabeth and if we would do any more real estate transactions in the Sacramento area, we would definitely use her again! We feel we really lucked out finding her. We had a rental house that we wanted to short sell but didn’t know how we could go about it, as we didn’t live in the house and didn’t have the typical “hardship”. Elizabeth guided us on what to do, and once we got it going she took over from there. The house sold quickly due to her advice on making it presentable, and she pushed the bank along to make the closing happen in a smooth and timely manner. She kept us informed every step of the way, and any emails or calls we made were answered promptly. We felt we were in great hands and really didn’t have to worry about anything, since she took care of everything! We are just really impressed and again, would highly recommend using Elizabeth!
KPGlenn, Elk Grove
“Elizabeth with very prompt in answering all of our questions and keeping us update to date on our short sale. She was very knowledgable about every step of the process and helped us patiently navigate through the process.”
Elizabeth handled the short sell of my house. With her experience and guidance, we successfully sold our home. The short sell process is not always short, quick, easy, and stress free. Elizabeth helped manage all these and more. She was always quick to respond, easy to talk to, and gave good information. When the first buyers deal fell through, her can-do attitude and real estate experience helped when the second buyer put in their offer. This experience helped speed up this offer so when all the paperwork was done, which happened very quickly, we were able to finally relax and know that we were going to make it.
Karen Sandoval, Elk Grove
I cannot begin to say how well Elizabeth handled my short sale. It was quick, easy and relatively pain free. She and her team (especially Shaundra) answered all questions, resolved any and all issues timely. I put my home on the market mid July and was completely closed by end of December. WOW!!!! Even with me moving out of state mid sale she handled things in a very caring and professional manner. Thank You!!!
My stressful experience with my short sale was made so much better with Elizabeth by my side. Her sense of humor always put a big smile on my face as well! I can not recommend her enough. She is the BEST in the business. Her commitment and follow through blew me away, not to mention how lightening fast she would always get back to me. Thank you Elizabeth for EVERYTHING!!
user375328, Cameron Park
My husband and I had been trying to sell our house for quite some time. We gave up on our realtor after the second sale fell through. I was a bit apprehensive about finding someone new to help us. I cannot tell you how glad I was that we decided to move forward again and that we found Elizabeth. She is extremely knowledgable about the short sale process and made it as painless as possible for us. She is very responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. I could not be more pleased and am so very thankful to her for looking out for us, and for helping us through this process.
user15848, Elk Grove
Elizabeth was recommended to me from another source and I’m so glad I took their advice. She was knowledgeable and always had a ready answer for my questions, and was very responsive when I asked them. I know she absolutely had my back during the process, and was incredibly efficient in getting the property sold. We went through a few buyers for my short sale, but she was such a go-getter and so organized, that it was relatively simple wading through the process. I appreciate someone who is direct and straightforward, doesn’t play games and has wisdom through years of experience. That is irreplaceable when looking for someone to guide you through the complicated process of short sales in these difficult economic times. I HIGHLY recommend Elizabethas your short sale agent.

After a difficult decision, Elizabeth has made the selling process as smooth for my brother and me as it can possibly be. Her expertise and quick response to my questions and concerns help make the process bearable. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone that needs help in doing a short sale.

If you are looking for someone to assist you with your short sale, I would highly recommend Elizabeth Weintraub. We found her on Zillow, and decided to give her a call. Her no-nonsense professionalism was exactly what we were looking for. Our lender, B of A, would not approve the short sale because they didn’t think we had a hardship. Elizabeth refused to give up, it was like a challenge to her, and she just re-submitted until we were approved (of course, B of A made us go into default in order to get the approval, which isn’t surprising for them). We had heard horror stories about the short sale process, but with Elizabeth handling the sale, it just didn’t seem that bad. We know someone who is currently going thru a short sale with a different agent, and they are experiencing issues that we never had to deal with in our short sale (like their agent never responds to e-mails/calls, Elizabeth responds immediately). We are now on the road to rebuilding our credit and starting a new life in Portland, Oregon. Thanks, Elizabeth, and a shout out to Shaundra too!
Elizabeth came highly recommended by my legal counsel and it was certainly warrented. I contracted with her to represent me in a short sale of my home and it was by no means an easy sell. My house was an “as is” sale. The holders of my 1st and 2nd mortgages had set a non-negociable price and there were many setbacks along the way with lowball offers. In additio,n my house had been broken into twice with some damage to the property. Many times during the process I became very discouraged, but Elizabeth was always prompt to reasurem me she could find an appropriate buyer, and that is exactly what she did. She not only is a expert at what she does, but she is amazingly responsive to questions and concerns and is a wonderfully personalbe person. If you are considering a short sale of your home, you really only need to make one phone call and that is to Elizabth. I am very grateful to her for all her help and her persistance in getting my house sold. When she makes a promise she sticks to it.

As a military member faced with a mandatory move, my wife and I decided to contact the same realtor that helped us purchase our home in 2008. As with the purchase, the short sale was seamless to my wife and I though I know Elizabeth had her work cut out for her. Elizabeth did a great job helping us through the process after my family and I had to move to our new duty location half way across the country. Many hurdles could have potentially ended this sale including a depreciation of over 100k over a mere 24 months as well as working with the VA appraiser to ensure the deal went through. Many thanks to Elizabeth and the Lyon team to get our house sold.

Elizabeth handled the short sale of our home. She knows everything about how our mortgage servicer handles short sales and was able to get ours done even before the predicted close date. Everything went smoothly including making sure the proper documents were signed by us beforehand because we were out of the country when the sale closed. Couldn’t be happier with the way it worked out.

For months I had been reading Elizabeth’s real estate articles. When I finally decided to sell my house and call her, she answered the phone! Working with Elizabeth was a pleasure because she’s absolutely an expert in her field, and it was easy to get in touch with her. She took excellent pictures of my house to represent it beautifully; she was able to anticipate the correct value of my home and knew which offer would most likely be the one to last through the sale process. If you are thinking about selling a home, hire Elizabeth because she knows what she is doing.
When I started researching short sales in Sacramento, I ran across Elizabeth’s Active Rain blog and other resources and references to her. I called, fully prepared to leave a message and wait for a call back. No message needed because Elizabeth answers her phone…regularly. She’s accessible, knowledgable, energetic, persistent, frank, and knows the short sale business inside out. As a seller, I could see that Elizabeth took many precautions to ensure the buyer committment was solid. She is a resourceful, persuasive, seasoned professional. If she can’t get a sale across the finish line, I don’t think anyone can. I’m convinced you cannot find a better agent. I’m going to call Elizabeth in two years when I’m ready to buy again, and I expect she will answer her phone, and I know she will use her impressive skill set to negotiate the best possible deal for me.

Elizabeth’s extensive knowledge in the short sell process was key to helping me in a difficult time of my life. She is well known and respected among her peers and by others in the loan and title business in the greater Sacramento region. Her invaluable advice and continuous support throughout the process resulted in the sell of my property in as little as 2 weeks! I would not hesitate to turn to Elizabeth in the future and highly recommend her services.
The best decision I could have made with the short sale of my home was to have Elizabeth be my selling agent. There is a reason why she is one of the best if not THE BEST short sale agent here in sacramento. She knew exactly what needed to be done for my specific situation and executed precisely and with determination on what course of action to take. We listed our house and that day received multiple offers, in 48 hours we had the lender approve the short sale. 48 hrs! We chose the best buyer and closed within the month. It was just amazing how effective Elizabeth was. However, I was even more impressed with her attitude and demeanor. She has a care for her clients that you just don’t seem to find anymore in any industry. She cared about what I was going through. She took care of everything and made the sad situation easier to let go. Thank you Elizabeth for your very kind spirit and machine like resolve!

Elizabeth and her team provided great guidance in navigating the short sale process and achieving the goal of selling my home. I was particularly impressed with the quick response to my phone calls and emails. I highly recommend Elizabeth and her team!

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.
David and Schelenee Heglund, Gold River
Elizabeth was fantastic. Could not have chosen a better agent.
Ernest and Fatima Arvizo, Elk Grove
Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with short sales. She made us feel confident in a very difficult and trying time in our lives. She really knows her stuff and made herself available to answer any of our concerns. I have and will continue to refer my family and friends to her.
George and Cydney Preciado, Elk Grove
One of the best agents I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Very professional and courteous. Would definitely work with her again.

We are so happy we found Elizabeth! Our sale went so smoothly, and we always felt that she was on the ball.
Keith and Amy Roleder, Antelope
Elizabeth Weintraub was excellent. We would use again in a heartbeat if we ever decide to buy or sell again in Sacramento. We feel like we won the lottery in finding her! She is truly a gem and a great asset to (Lyon Real Estate).

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Elizabeth Weintraub. She provided excellent guidance to us throughout our transaction.

Excellent short sale agent. Great to work with. Streamlined process with convenient document signing through emails. Knows when to wait and when to expect a better offer or to lower asking price.
Lisa Morris, Cameron Park
I could not be happier with my experience with Elizabeth. She helped to make a painful process as painless as possible. Elizabeth always kept me informed and was such a delight to work with.
Reuben Pierce, Sacramento
I can’t say enough good things about Elizabeth. She was wonderful! She gave great answers and support even when I sent panicked emails. She was always reachable and very supporting.
Wesley and Elizabeth Lilly, Orangevale
Elizabeth was very professional. She kept us informed on anything that came up. She worked with the law office and the bank, which helped us conclude the real estate transaction. Again, we thank Elizabeth so much. We have already given her information out to 5 people already.
Michael and Marjorie Callahan, Elk Grove
Elizabeth was excellent and made our short sale process so much better than it could have been. We’ve heard so many horror stories about short sales but we thought ours was not too bad. Elizabeth was professional and very responsive.
Cyan Duong, Elk Grove
I have bought and sold houses with many agents before, Elizabeth, by far is the BEST real estate agent I have dealt with. She is professional and always delivers what she promises. I am extremely happy and pleased that she represented me. If I ever think of buying again in California, I will definitely contact her and most definitely recommend her to my friends and family.
David & Petra Stanton, Elk Grove
Thanks to you we avoided a $90,000 debt that we would have otherwise incurred. We can’t thank you enough for all you did. Thank you for your wisdom, advice, expertise and encouragement. It was wonderful to work with you and we appreciate all you did. Thank you for helping us get a fresh start.
I already referred Elizabeth to my brother who is purchasing a home in Land Park. I can’t say anything negative about Elizabeth. She responded to email and phone messages extremely timely. She was aggressive and got the job done. Very pleasant, friendly and professional.
Elizabeth was very professional and knowledgeable in the real estate profession and specifically in short sale transactions. She knew how to use strategies to get her clients the best outcome of the sale.
Elizabeth was amazing. My short sale process took over a year and she was so patient and great through it all! I would never use another agent in Sacramento.
Todd & Michelle Constanza, Land Park
Elizabeth was great to work with. We appreciated all her help in our real estate transaction.
Arthur Burk, Real Estate Agent
From a buyer’s agent in a short sale: “This has been one of the smoothest transactions I have worked on in recent memory. You were a dream to work with on this property! No drama! I love it!”
Thank you so much for all your help. You got us out of a terrible situation. Without your expertise, professionalism, understanding and persistence, we may have ended up in foreclosure or struggling to hold on to a sinking ship.
Emily Afuola, Real Estate Agent & Chair Blue Star Mothers of America, Nat’l Veterans Service Officer
I love your column on About.com. I always look forward to it, learned so much from you . . . I always save your information and trust your advice. You make us agents proud, and I just wanted you to know I appreciate your hard work.
Teresa and Scott Brandon, Layton, Utah
I would like to personally thank you for your outstanding advice on About.com. We sold our home in less than a month with your help. We tried using an agent but we felt she didn’t ‘sell’ our house. We sat on the market for six months with only 6 showings to very uninterested buyers. I did lots of research before we listed it again, but spend most of my time looking at your about.com articles. We had thousands of hits and an offer within just three weeks of first listing it. Your excellent advice made the difference.
Michael and Dana Vecchio, Land Park
Elizabeth served us well — patiently addressed our questions and expertly guided the process to completion in our best financial interest.
Michelle Badal, Primacy Relocation Client
Elizabeth is a professional. I trusted her ability and her experience. She is organized and follows up as promised.
Joseph Vanacore, Retired, Sacramento Business Journal
Elizabeth was dandy at providing the right amount of hand-holding, explanations and advice. I’m more than pleased to have received what I netted.
Dr. Anita Moon-Grady, UC Davis
Elizabeth did a spectacular job . . . all her suggestions were good ones, and she knows the market well.
David and Diane Delgado, American City College
We were very fortunate to have Elizabeth as our Realtor for both buying and selling our homes. She is outstanding in all phases of real estate transactions, knowledge and customer service.
Bill and Debra Madison, Book Binder / Journalist
Elizabeth was superb. Would use her again. She is a real pro, an asset to Lyon.
Tina Howell, Wells Fargo Bank
Elizabeth, you are beyond wonderful . . . I have no idea what I would do without you. You not only earn your money with 24/7 service, you earn it ten times over.
Erin Kim, Lincoln
Elizabeth Weintraub is amazing. She is incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and dedicated. I have rarely dealt with an agent as impressive as her.
Roxanne and Chad Stellmacher, Sacramento
We believe Elizabeth’s hard work, determination and above-and-beyond customer service are the reason we are now homeowners. In this difficult real estate market, it’s vital to have a smart, hardworking and knowledgeable agent on your side. We feel blessed to have worked with Elizabeth during the purchase of our first home.
Galen Lemei, Midtown lawyer
Elizabeth was a true champion who guided me through the thicket of Sacramento real estate and fiercely advocated on my behalf throughout a challenging transaction. Anyone who has her as a their representative is very fortunate!
Michael Jennaro and Strada Morris, Land Park
My wife and I both agree that Ms. Weintraub was far and away the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She was open and honest from the very beginning of what her goals were (for us) and how she would achieve them as the chosen representative in our home purchase. She also asked us exactly what we wanted in a home and once we found it, she was incredible in securing it for us. Her abilities in negotiation, her attention to detail and her willingness to do anything for her clients was simply extraordinary.
