About Me

Barbara has more than 20 years experience in residential real estate, serving Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer and Yolo counties. Never more than a phone call away, Barbara keeps open and constant communication with clients so that they remain abreast of what is happening throughout the transaction. Her outstanding customer service is a result of her ability to listen and understand her clients’ wants and needs. She is dedicated to serving her clients with honesty and integrity, not only to ensure a good real estate experience, but to also build a friendship.  A former resident of El Dorado Hills, Barbara now revels her role as an empty nester, (her son lives in Shingle Springs, daughter in Truckee,). She lives Sacramento with her husband Jim and two dogs – dachshund Maddie and Yorkshire Max. Barbara loves gardening, home remodeling and prides herself on the ability to always see a diamond in the rough.

Barbara is an excellent agent. She had gone above the bar to assure us that we would find a home and when the lender dropped the ball so many times she did all that she could to get them back on track even when we had just about given up. Our lender was very hard to work with but Barbara always found a way for us to regain hope. Thru her diligence and professionalism she didn’t just find us a house but put us in our home. I would recommend anyone to her. To put it simply, she is an awesome person to work with. She is great as an agent and you can tell that she likes her job and enjoys working with people. I say give her a raise for her excellent people skills!

Barbara was wonderful! Thanks!!


I am writing to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with Barbara Dow of the Elizabeth Weintraub team. Today I closed on the purchase of a small condo in the Woodside development after what turned out to be a somewhat difficult transaction with the lender. From the start, Barbara was ultra-responsive, resourceful and professional. She worked very hard and showed me many properties fitting my needs until I chose the one that was just right. Barbara has a thorough knowledge of real estate and was always able to answer my questions. Sometimes more than once until it sunk in. I always felt Barbara truly represented my best interests as the buyer. Throughout, it was a pleasure to work with Barbara. We had many laughs and I feel I’ve made a friend. She is a tremendous asset to the Lyon organization.


Thank you for all of you amazing work. We love our new home & greatly appreciate it. We look forward to working with you again the future.

Barbara was the best real estate agent I have ever met. She was professional, but very kind and supportive to buyers like me. She is someone we truly could trust in every process of the deal. I will recommend her and Lyon Real Estate to my friends for sure.


Barbara is a truly impressive agent-she really elevates the job to an art form. We had a very challenging real estate purchase (high demand area, property in a trust, difficult lender behavior) and at every step of the way, she handled our case with as much finesse, promptness and energy as if the purchase were her own. Highly impressed, highly recommended. Barb knows her stuff!

I love Barbara. She was amazing and I have recommended her already. Lyon Real Estate is awesome when I'm done studying to become an agent I would love to work there.


This is the second time Barbara has handled a real estate transaction for me. She is very person-oriented, professional, supportive and on call for any questions. In both cases, she made the whole process as stress-free as possible, even though there were complications caused by outside buyers/logistics. I appreciated her work, would use her again and highly recommend her to others.

Barbara, we really appreciate all your support in finding our new home. The bank didn't make it easy and your availability and persistence made it happen (just in time).
