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.
