NewLook Realty is a veteran owned, Sacramento-based acquisition, rehabilitation, investment, and real estate sales company. We are experts in all phases of a real estate transaction, and can best serve you when it’s time to buy, sell, or invest in real estate.
Whether you are buying or selling a home, flipping, rehabbing, wholesaling, or looking to invest, we are here to help you. NewLook is your solution to all of your real estate needs. We specialize in acquiring single and multifamily properties which need to be sold quickly, such as foreclosures or sellers who are working against a deadline.
When we purchase homes, we do so with one of several exit strategies in mind, including: to rehab and sell, lease option to a retail buyer, to sell to a landlord, to sell to a wholesaler, or to ultimately rent out with ourselves serving as the landlord.
At NewLook Realty Company we know that our success is built upon relationships we’ve built with partners and investors during our many years in business. We understand that these relationships are built on trust, and meeting the needs of our customers at every level. We believe in 100% transparency, and simply being fair to all involved in the process of buying and selling quality homes.
“We purchase our seller’s homes using one of the oldest, most respected title companies, Chicago Title, and a Title and Escrow officer with years of experience who makes sure EVERYONE involved is well informed and taken care of throughout the sale. We have had Tracy Fanizzi helping us with our purchases and sales for the last 15 years.”
The houses we target for purchase tend to be the ones that aren’t necessarily the most beautiful in the neighborhood. But after we buy a house to rehab, the house is remodeled and sold to a happy new home owner to love and live in. The communities we have worked in have embraced us because, in the process of doing our jobs, we beautify their neighborhood and raise property values.

How Do We Do It?
Pretty simple really. We don’t like to over complicate things.
Our company has honed our marketing to a point where we’re pretty darn good at it. We find and acquire deeply discounted Sacramento Area] real estate then make those properties available to you at DEEPLY discounted prices from current market value.

Where Do We Find These Deals?
Great deals are everywhere in today’s market. But, as you’ve found… the investors who have the best marketing, systems, and connections snap up the best deals before most people even know about them. That’s us. Whether you’re looking for…
- Sacramento Area Foreclosure properties for sale
- Discount homes
- Fixer uppers
- Handyman deals
- Investment homes for sale
- Bank owned foreclosures / REO properties
- Distressed property
- Discount multi-family properties
How Do We Find The Best Deals?
We’ve honed our proprietary marketing systems over the last few years and now have a consistent stream of deeply discounted properties, foreclosure properties, distressed property, and other types of real estate.
You may have even seen some of marketing around Sacramento.
In the end, we’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars into refining our marketing systems to what they are today. You benefit from that by letting us find the great deals and sending them your way.
Why Should You Work With Us?
We’ve already done the work and made the investments to generate a consistent stream of deeply discounted deals. Because we come across so many great deals (30% – 50% below market value) we simply can’t buy and keep all of these properties ourselves… and frankly we’re really good at finding properties but hate owning properties 🙂
So, that’s where you come in.
Real Estate Investors Looking For Rentals
If you’re a real estate investor and are looking for great rental properties that will cash flow or distressed properties to rehab and resell… have us find those properties for you. Just tell us what your buying criteria is, and we’ll custom search for properties for you that fit your criteria. The beauty of it is you never pay for our service… we make our money by adding on a small fee once you close on one of our properties.
Homeowners Looking For A Discount Home To Live In
Most of the properties we sell are bought up by real estate investors. However, if you are looking for a home to live in yourself… you’re at the right place! Join our Preferred Buyers list and act fast if you see a home you like. Because we offer these great houses at such steep discounts they do tend to sell fast… so make sure you’re pre-qualified with your bank (we can help you with that if you’d like) before you make an offer on one of our houses.
In the end, we’ve gotten to where we are today because we’ve focused on becoming really good at finding great deals, marketing, and passing those deals off to people like you at a huge discount. That’s all we do. You can rest assured that we are a great company to work with… and we’re just real people just like you.
