    Hello again everyone are you ready for LOVE???

    Well Tammy has got a message for you.Tammy would like to start off by explaining, that many of us who are looking for LOVE are not starting in the right place. Which place is that? “You must learn to love yourself first, in order to mirror a peaceful and strong lit energy to attract another”. Tammy explains that you cannot expect to find a true and “peaceful” love if you are not first in a peaceful place yourself.

    Begin with yourself and see how true love finds its way in. Even with relationships that may need renew ( marriages,engagements, dating). Clearing the way to your future is what Tammy does best and knowing the road blocks even from deep within is what she removes in addition to helping you know yourself a bit better.

    Recent news: Lecture of 2012 Cd copy is availible reserve yours now for $20 here is a sample http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqyHB2E6r_U

    Guest Amenities

    We took a random, non scientific study and asked patients how they would make a dental visit more fun. Our top responses included money (lots of it), silence and sometimes, just laughter (ike loud, uncontrollable laughter). We figured we had a long way to go as an industry. So, we decided as part of our patients’ experience we would throw in some cool amenities and fun perks – after all, what did we have to lose? As part of your visit, patients are welcomed with the following:

    Warm, fragranced hand towels
    Video goggles to watch your favorite shows and movies
    iPods readily stored with movies for your entertainment viewing
    State-of-the-art, noise cancellation headsets
    Relaxing aromatherapy products
    Neck warmers
    Cool gadgets and toys (e.g. check out our supersized abacus!)
    Beverages and snacks
    Intriguing artwork by local artists (Take a look on Second Saturdays!)
    Complimentary care kits

    We also have latest clinical practices and technological innovations, as well as Ecodentistry.

  • Agent of the Month for December: Robby Woodward

    Posted to Grid Blogs January 13th, 2012

    With December being Better Homes and Gardens busiest month of 2011, Robby Woodward finished the year off as our top producing agent. He is one of the hardest working agents we have seen. We are proud of Robby and wish him all the more success in 2012.

    Robby’s passion in real estate came from his father. As a boy Robby would watch him build houses from the ground up; and he was inspired to follow in his footsteps. Robby decided to study real estate development in college. He had a brief internship with a mortgage firm and eventually took an internship with a Real Estate Brokerage in Midtown Sacramento. Robby quickly received his DRE license and became one of the top Realtors of that firm. Robby has earned experience with everything from investment properties to first time home buyers, to Short Sales and REO business. Robby’s one piece of advice: surround yourself with caring people that tend to make the right decisions. You will find love and guidance there.

    For more information on Robby Woodward, please see his website @ http://www.bhghome.com/robby or call him directly at 916-206-7318.
