Born in Spokane, Washington, I have spent my years growing up in the Sacramento area. Granite Bay, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park and Fair Oaks are just a few of my old stomping grounds. I currently reside in the Arden-Arcade area and spend most of my time there in addition to Midtown and East Sacramento and Granite Bay. 

Getting into Real Estate was never in the cards for me growing up, or maybe it was. Wearing nice clothes, combing my hair and poring over contracts and documents had never crossed my mind over the years of screaming guitars and smoke filled venues as I was trying to carve out a career in music. In 2011 I started to think about the music industry and how it relates to tasks other people do on a daily basis and what professions those people held. There were a few that came out as the pen hit the paper, but one stuck out, Real Estate. It was the scariest one. Ties, smiles, BMW's... It all seemed so fake and 'lame'. I am punk rock, and even considering going into Real Estate cried "sell out". 

It was a few months before I revisited the notion of expanding, branching out into other areas where I could gain humility, and a steady paycheck. August of 2011 was when I joined my first real estate class and over the next fourteen months I would study whenever I possibly could. I began to get excited about what real estate is; Helping two people start their lives as they purchase their first home together, assisting in building an investors portfolio, and at some point acquiring land for myself. It all excited me. I have always been driven by the end result of a dream that is absolutely attainable if you work hard and stay positive. This is what The Elizabeth Weintraub Team delivers to our clients dreams. We work efficiently, strategically and with compassion to ensure the trust our clients put in us is met with overwhelming success and happiness. We make dreams come true.

My first big win in this business wasn't just my first commission check, it was the gratitude and smiles I received from my first clients when we sold their home for more than they thought they could and then closed on the one they really wanted. Everyday is just another opportunity to become a better agent for my clients whom I hope to keep for a lifetime. Real Estate has morphed into another shade of punk rock for me. Another patch sown into the flag of personal freedom and expression.

The band plays on, although no ties are allowed onstage.

I recently purchased a house in West Sacramento, and working with Josh Amolsch from Elizabeth Weintraub's Team was a wonderful experience. Josh was very knowledgeable about the Sacramento area, housing markets, trends, and knew how to put together very competitive offers. I also referred Josh to another family member who is in the process of purchasing a home, and I am positive he will make it a great experience! Thanks Josh!

My husband and I were first time home buyers working with a VA loan, Josh Amolsch was on it! He was amazing! Great to work with, he made the whole experience super easy and stress free. We ended up finding the perfect house and he helped our dreams come true! We will continue to work with Josh for all of our home buying and selling, now that we've found him we're not letting go!

Working with the Elizabeth Weintraub Team via Josh Amolsch was a great experience. We were engulfed in the process of selling and buying at the same time, and Josh was helpful not only in helping us find the perfect house in Sacramento but also in making sure we could close on time. The first house we were set to purchase had some major issues that surfaced after the inspection, which forced us to cancel the sale. However, we were already deep in the process of selling the current home we lived in, so we felt like we were in limbo without a place to live. Josh was able to calm our concerns during the hectic process, and when we found another house that we loved, he was able to expedite the process so our buying/selling close dates matched up! Josh helped turn what could have been a catastrophe into a smooth transaction, all the while making sure that we were happy in our new home. Josh was also very knowledgeable about all the different Sacramento neighborhoods, the different styles of houses, and could provide insight on future building in Sacramento. Overall very impressed! Definitely would do all of my future real estate ventures through Josh and would recommend him to any buyer!

I recently bought my first home and had the pleasure of working with Lyon Real Estate (Sacramento), specifically with realtor Josh Amolsh. Being a perfectionist, I very seldom meet people that are up to my ridiculously-high standards but Josh was one of them. He was on top of things from the beginning, and although our road was bumpy he was always in charge and soon became my go to person for EVERYTHING, even to the point of surrendering control (a first for me). My experience was such that I look forward to working with Josh for all my future real estate endeavors and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants no one but the best working for them.

My mother and I had the pleasure of working with Josh Amolsch this holiday season, he is amazing! We loved his professionalism and diligence as well as all his patience while helping us find the perfect investment opportunity for us. He made the whole process as quick and easy as it could possibly be. Whether it was through email, text, or a call he was always quick to respond. We would definitely recommend him to family and friends as well as be happy to work with him again in the future.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with realtor Josh Amolsch from Lyon Real Estate. He was amazing! We knew we wanted to purchase a home in Sacramento and had a very specified list of what we were looking for in a home and the surrounding neighborhood. Josh was tentative to our needs and quick to respond to our emails, texts, and phone calls throughout the process. Josh is extremely professional and knowledgeable. We ended up with a beautiful home in East Sacramento that met all of our needs! I would recommend Josh Amolsch to anyone looking to buy a home in the Sacramento area! Thanks Josh!

My wife and I just purchased a El Webb home in Elk Grove with the assistance of Josh. We lived outside of the Sacramento area but Josh made the home buying process very easy due to his professionalism and his knowledge of the ins and outs of the real estate business. He assisted us with excellent information on several small issues that we encountered and provided a positive attitude throughout the buying process. We would recommend Josh to anyonewsho is thinking of buying or selling a home in the Sacramento area. Kent Barnes

My wife and I just purchased a home in El Dorado Hills, CA with the assistance of Josh Amolsch of Lyon Real Estate. Josh did a lot of listening and working very hard for us to identify homes that had the character that we were looking for. Not only was he very good at this, but he moved very quickly when we hit him with "spur of the moment" requests. Josh was always available to us, as well. Even though we knew that he might be juggling his schedule with multiple clients, he was always there and ready to help us to get what we wanted. Josh was not just our Real Estate Agent, but he will be a friend as we create new memories in our new El Dorado home. I would highly recommend Josh to any potential client! Terry Wood

We had a fantastic experience with our realtor Josh Amolsch! Josh was very efficient, reliable, and patient with our many needs. He took the time to explain the buying process to us along every step of the way. He kept in close communication with us to provide updates, and helped us move from one step to the next in such a pleasant and professional manner. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to get us through the experience of purchasing a home...

My brother and I had the pleasure of working with Josh Amolsch. As first time home buyers, we weren't really sure what to expect but Josh made it an easy process. He was attentive, knowledgeable, professional and responsive with every stage of this process. We would work with Josh in a heartbeat! If your looking for a great agent, look no further.

Josh was always professional, timely and returned our calls promptly. And, if he didn't know an answer to our question, he always found out for us... It was also very nice that he met us at the escrow office during signing..."

We had the pleasure of being Josh Amolsch's first sell and first buy. We could not have asked for a better job. Everything went smoothly with Lyon and we got the house we wanted after easily selling our old house. We had an absolutely terrible experience with our lender, but Josh took command and got us the deal we wanted. Whenever we sell our house we'll be going back to Josh and Lyon Real Estate.

We could not have asked for a better Realtor than Josh Amolsch! He was extremely hard working, very attentive, supportive, and excellent at his job. He not only answered emails, texts, and phone calls immediately, but he also went above and beyond on a daily basis and kept us informed throughout the entire process. My husband and I bought our beautiful first home in Curtis park and couldn't be happier. Not only did he show us the perfect house only one day after I contacted him, but he helped me throughout the very difficult process of buying a home while my husband was deployed. He made sure he knew how to deal with every aspect of the challenging process. We managed to find, put in an offer, and close on our home all within the same month, allowing my husband to come home from deployment to a beautiful new house! I will give Josh my enthusiastic recommendation to everyone buying a home!
