Stopping at Kona Brewing After Closing a Home in Elk Grove

Kona Brewing

Elizabeth Weintraub and husband Adam at Kona Brewing Co.

My husband suggested we stop at Kona Brewing after I closed a sale in Elk Grove to “drink all of their beers.” That whim sounded like an excellent idea to me, and I’m all in for celebrating, unwinding and acting on the spur of the moment while in Hawaii. I’ve closed 3 sales in the past week since we’ve been in Kona, so it’s been a good week. On top of which, we bought a few more things for our house in Hawaii, and that was a bit exhausting.

For example, when I asked the guy from Aina’s Electrical, who was installing our beautiful new super quiet ceiling fan in the master, where we could go to find a couple of rugs under which geckos could hide, he suggested Amazon or eBay. What about keeping your dollars in the community? Well, says he, you could do that, too. Then he announced the fan was as good as he could do, yet it still wobbled. Hated to say this, but he needed to do better. He eventually stopped the wobbling. I knew he had it in him. read more

Updated Elk Grove Ranch Home on Private Court Just Listed

Elk Grove ranch home

9034 El Measa Ct, Elk Grove, CA 95624 just listed by Elizabeth Weintraub, Lyon RE.

This Elk Grove ranch home is a darling home, painted a cheery yellow, and it features a red tile roof. How pretty! There is a fenced private courtyard to keep children and pets from running into the street. Although the street is a private cul-de-sac with very little cars except for 11 neighbors coming home from work. It’s located in Emerald Park subdivision, just southeast from the Elk Grove-Florin and Elk Grove Blvd. intersection. Not that far from the freeway, either, but far enough away you don’t hear the noise. It’s close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. read more

The Downside to Buying Homes Near Dairy Farms in Elk Grove

dairy farms

Dairy farms in Elk Grove are scattered in the countryside.

Dairy farms have convinced me. Much as I appreciate the countryside, I am an urban girl at heart. It’s not often that I get out to the country. Living in Sacramento, the country is actually very close at hand. There are lots of places you can drive to from downtown Sacramento and be in the country in 20 to 30 minutes. Which is where we went yesterday afternoon to bring our adopted cat Horatio back to the Sisters Animal Sanctuary on Fogg Road. We drove past a bunch of dairy farms. I’ve never seen so many cows that close up. I asked my husband to stop the car so I could shoot a photo, which you see above. read more

My whole team is excited to present this new listing in the Mirabela at Medeira subdivision built by Taylor Morrison in Elk Grove. It’s south of Elk Grove Blvd and West of Big Horn, close to several parks: Horseshoe Park and Constellation Park. This home is simply incredible. It’s the type of home that you wish the seller would leave all of her furniture, wall hangings and accessories, because it’s decorated so beautifully. The decor is modern, yet inviting with clean lines, soothing colors and all of the furnishings are so well coordinated. read more

Newer Elk Grove Home in Franklin Crossing For Sale

home in Franklin crossing for sale

10544 Buckland Way, Elk Grove, CA 95757 is a newer home in Franklin Crossing

Although, the Bilby / Willard Parkway area in Elk Grove is one of the hottest neighborhoods in 95757, I’d like to introduce you to something even newer, a home in Franklin Crossing for sale. Unlike the other homes nearby that were built during the boom years of 2003 to 2005, this home in Franklin Crossing was built in 2014. That makes it three years new.

When you think about major components having a life span of 15 to 20 years, it means buying a home that was built in 2003 could need repairs shortly, but that’s unlikely with a 3-year-new home. You’ve got a long ways to go before you’ll have to think about replacing the HVAC or buying a new range. read more
