Precision is Best.

Precision Auto GlassThe best part about getting a new windshield is the immediate clarity that you get. Especially after neglect and failure to care for my windshield, after I had Precision Auto Glass repair my windshield in Sacramento, it was looking pretty good. It sure helps when you can see out of your windshield, doesn’t it?!

Of course it’s never great when you have to get a new windshield because it means that you have to pay money for it and it means something happened that made it necessary for it to be replaced. Lucky for me, it wasn’t because of a serious accident or a robbery– it was because I went on a long road trip and a rock hit my windshield and created a crack.

After about a year, that little crack spread from one side of my windshield to the other. That’s just not safe! So I called Precision Auto Glass, a windshield repair company in Sacramento, and they completely sorted me out for the rest of the life time of my car. I hope so, anyway!!

Short-Sale listing to the rescue!

Short Sale-SacramentoMy wife and I had just found out we were adding to our family when we were looking for a new home. We had planned on buying a home, but the new baby wasn’t exactly part of that plan. So we knew that our budget was going to change significantly. That’s why we started working with Short Sale- Sacramento because we knew they’d be able to find us a home we could afford.

Starting a family was both a scary thing for us, but ultimately exciting because we were prepared to take the next step in our lives. Even though the timing wasn’t ideal, we were both so excited to be having our first baby in our first house together. And Short Sale- Sacramento really made all of it possible for the experience to be magical, rewarding and beautiful.

After a few months, we finally found the house that would be perfect for us. With four bedrooms, we would be able to increase our family size again before having to get a bigger house. That was a priority for us because we knew we would have everything taken care of if we started building our family now. Short Sale- Sacramento really pulled through for us!

The help I needed.

Empathy TherapyAfter living abroad with the U.S military, and fighting in combat, I knew that it would be a good idea to see a counselor Sacramento like Empathy Therapy. I moved back from a tour last winter and was reluctant to start going to a therapist because I didn’t want to have to get a new one if I moved.

But I finally decided that I didn’t know how long I would be in Sacramento, and it was probably not a fruitless endeavor to try to get started toward my recovery. I could be in Sacramento for six months or six years, and I figured it was a good idea to start taking my mental health seriously, especially because I had seen many of my colleagues suffer from PTSD and I didn’t want to be in the same situation.

The counselors and psychiatrists at Empathy Therapy are first class and I feel that I am always in good hands no matter what. They are smart, well educated and intuitive as well. They take a holistic approach to therapy and psychotherapy that I whole-heartledly agree with.

Can’t Take the Heat.

Alley Heating & AirOh man, you really don’t learn to appreciate technology until it’s taken away from you! I learned the hard way when I had to call Alley Heating & Air when my air conditioning went out in the dead of summer. And I mean the dead of summer.

It was 105 degrees on the day my air conditioning decided to go kaput! I didn’t even know what to do, it was so hot. So I called Alley Heating & Air and I called my sister, thinking I would need to stay with her for a few days while I got my A/C fixed. But no, Alley was able to fix it on the very same day! My hero!

It only took a few hours for them to figure out what was wrong and what it was going to take to make my air conditioning functional again. I was so relieved I hugged the technician who came out to fix my air conditioner! I was just so relieved that I wouldn’t have to stay somewhere else while  my A/C was fixed.

Buying Our First Home Together

ATK TeamMy husband and I got married earlier this year and have been waiting until my husband got a raise to buy a house. He finally did and we are finally starting to look for a home together, with the help of the ATK Team. We are so excited about it because we’ve been waiting for ten years to buy a house. And now that we’re finally doing it, it seems really surreal!

It’s been a long process from start to finish, but having a professional realtor like the ATK Team working with us to find a house has been invaluable because we had never really done anything like this before. Looking for an apartment is second nature, but this would be a place we may spend the rest of our lives and raise our children in. It was an important decision.

It took about six months, but we finally managed to get the perfect house for us in Roseville thanks to the ATK Team. We got a five bedroom, five bathroom house that has everything I need for the next ten years. I’m assuming, of course, that we won’t have about ten kids. We are so happy with our new home and we are excited for this new chapter.
