  • Enjoy fresh seafood at The Virgin Sturgeon

    Posted to Featured January 18th, 2012

    Located just two miles from downtown Sacramento, The Virgin Sturgeon restaurant floats on the Sacramento river along the Garden Highway. One enters through a long gangway that once served as a jetway for Pan American Airlines at San Francisco International.

    Featuring a wide ranging menu and full bar since 1984, patrons have come to rely upon this and our daily-changing choice of fresh seafood, in or outdoor seating and beautiful sunset all year long.

    Arrive by car, or boat, and enjoy a fine meal or just cocktails at our riverside bar!

  • 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 @ or call him directly at 916-206-7318.
