“The way therapy should be!” Brought to you by – Johns Creek Physical Therapy Thank you for voting Johns Creek Physical Therapy as the Best Physical Therapy Practice of North Atlanta three years in a row. Our belief is that this award reflects our unrelenting dedication to our patients and our endless commitment to customer service. Our family of patients will tell you that the environment created at Johns Creek Physical Therapy is overwhelmingly positive. The staff is focused on creating a unique treatment plan for each individual, rather than treating everyone like a number. We also want to thank all our patients for referring their friends and family, entrusting us to care for the people they love most. When we opened our doors 17 years ago, we adopted the company slogan, “The way Therapy should be.” We believe our motto says it all and it is our driving force in the excellence we deliver in caring for our patients and our commitment to service.

If you are doing therapy somewhere else and you are still looking for results, we invite you to call our office and ask for a complimentary consultation. We will meet with you and see if there is something we can help you with. You do not need a referral to get started with a physical therapist in the state of Georgia. Check us out on google or just come on in and meet our award-winning team. Again, thank you to everyone!

Patient centered, state-of-the-art women’s healthcare Available in Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Cumming Brought to you by — Modern OBGYN of North Atlanta With no time to be sick, in pain or have surgery, the providers of Modern OBGYN know that educating women with different options for surgery is important. Dr. John Reyes, Dr. Ingrid Reyes, Dr. Natu Mmbaga, Dr. Annie Kim, Dr. Stacey Pereira, Dr. Christy Kenkel, and Dr. Nada Megally understand that one way of helping women in this busy world is through minimally invasive surgical options via robotic surgery and in-office surgical procedures. “There are so many great options for women,” Dr. John Reyes said. “It’s our job to get that information to them and make them aware they don’t need large incisions, long hospital stays, or painful recovery times.” Minimally invasive robotic surgery allows the physicians at Modern OBGYN to operate through just a few small incisions. Featuring a high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist, da Vinci enables them to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

As the first surgeons to perform da Vinci robotic surgeries at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, husband and wife team Dr. Ingrid and Dr. John Reyes know some common issues that can be addressed with robotic surgery are hysterectomies, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain and heavy bleeding. Striving to do their best for the women in the community, Dr. John said, “It’s a blessing to be able to do minimally invasive and robotic surgeries on patients suffering from longstanding issues such as infertility from endometriosis, fibroids, or pelvic adhesive disease.” Established in 2010, Modern OBGYN has three convenient office locations in Johns Creek, Alpharetta at Avalon, and the newest office located on the Northside Forsyth campus in Cumming. Along with compassionate care for patients and their needed surgeries, Modern OBGYN strives to give expecting mothers the support they need by making sure that the mothers personally know their provider. Modern OBGYN has a highly experienced team of Certified Nurse Midwives who work alongside each physician to provide well-rounded, patient-centered and personal obstetrical care. You’ll always know us, and we’ll

always know you,” Dr. John said. “No surprises when it comes time to deliver!” Dr. John says the best part about building provider-patient relationships is, “We can help them become pregnant, and come full-circle to care for them during their pregnancy and delivery. It’s the full spectrum of caring for what’s so important to a woman’s life—her health and her family.”

Modern OBGYN also provides routine annual exams, Pap smears, HPV testing, irregular cycles, menopause and other common women’s issues. The physicians perform robotic surgery at both Emory Johns Creek Hospital and Northside Hospital-Forsyth. For more information on Modern Ob/Gyn’s providers and services, please visit www.reyesobgyn.com.

Morrow Family Medicine is an independent family practice that uses stateof-the-art technology combined with old-fashioned care to produce the best outcomes for our patients. Having practiced in Forsyth and North Fulton since 1998, Dr. Jim Morrow founded the practice in 2011 in Cumming. Morrow Family Medicine expanded into North Fulton with a location in Milton three years ago. Currently with seven providers, Morrow Family Medicine practices with a concentration in chronic disease management, episodic care and preventive medicine. Patients are able to be seen “same-day” by utilizing the morning walk-in hour that guarantees that no patient has to wait for the care they need and deserve. Patients are able to communicate online, via a smartphone app or traditional telephone to accomplish their healthcare goals. Return communication from the practice is prompt and useful, resulting in healthier outcomes for our patients. Morrow Family Medicine is the originator of the Forsyth BYOT Benefit. With two fund-raising events a year, the

charity has donated over $300,000 to Forsyth County Schools to improve the use of technology in the classroom and at home by providing devices and home Internet for those without it. At Morrow Family Medicine, we know that you have many choices for healthcare, but we will strive to be the best choice for you. We are a technologically advanced, yet “old-fashioned” family practice. If you are looking for people who care, you have come to the right place. We believe that you will find a home with Morrow Family Medicine. That’s why we are …bringing care back to healthcare.

Home Helpers of North Atlanta voted Best Home Care for Seniors for the 4th Time! Brought to you by – Home Helpers of North Atlanta Home Helpers of North Atlanta is honored to once again be voted the Best Home Care for Seniors in North Atlanta. Marking our 4th year in a row, thank you to everyone who voted for us! “While each year we’ve won has been rewarding, winning in 2020 in the midst of COVID-19 and what is unquestionably the greatest health care challenge our clients and caregivers have ever faced makes this an amazing honor. It is so important to adapt quickly and help families navigate as their loved ones face their own unique situations. We recognized early on the critical need to obtain Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), deliver extensive infection control training and elevate our customer service to a level that makes us stand apart that now includes Care Management. For many of our families, seeing their older loved ones thrive at home is now an alternative they view as a lifesaving decision.” Being able to deliver quality Care Management at such a rapid pace is a must in today’s world. It’s just not enough to set up a care plan and make a wonderful match of a heart centered caregiver to client. It takes proactive attention to detail by a team that has depth and skill. We have revamped our teams and added Care Managers that form a critical link with our

families as needs arise. It lets us pivot more quickly and address the questions and concerns clients have in real time. One of the most important benefits of proactive Care Management is that we can often recognize changes in our clients and work with them or their families to offer solutions and ideas before issues become critical. We want to make our knowledge and

experience a resource that is available for them. “It’s been so rewarding to be trusted by our clients and their families as we partner to help them” say Hilary and Greg Eldridge. “It’s our ability to constantly fine tune and deliver a truly personalized approach that makes the difference between good and great care. Change is constant - with our amazing caregivers and staff we strive to anticipate, recognize and address those changes as part of our ongoing commitment to partner with our families and deliver exceptional Care Management.” Hilary and Greg built this business as a tribute to Hilary’s father and set out eight years ago to raise the bar for in-home care. “I saw what a difference truly personalized care made in my Dad’s life and strive to provide the kind of care he’d be proud to have inspired”, says Hilary. “I always use his memory as a touchstone to make sure that even in the midst of change we engage the spirit of our clients as we honor the richness of their lives.” We’re here to help - from six hours a day, several days a week to 24/7 and live-in care. A Home Helpers caregiver has the skills to assist with all personal care, help around the house, safely speed up recovery from surgery, or provide specialized care for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.  For a free consultation please call Home Helpers of North Atlanta at (678) 430-8511.

Thank you for voting for Village Park Senior Living Brought to you by — Village Park Milton Village Park is honored to be recognized as one of North Atlanta’s best senior living communities for the second year in a row. This year has been full of excitement and growth as our family continues to expand. We opened our newest community, Village Park Milton, at 555 Wills Road and began Phase II of Village Park Alpharetta at 12300 Morris Road. The success of our Village Park communities is truly a reflection of the vibrancy and support from the larger North Atlanta community. Village Park and its parent company, Galerie Living, are continuously seeking new opportunities to elevate the senior living experience. Our concepts thoughtfully blend humanscale architecture with the lifestyle and needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. While each concept is distinguished by its own unique offerings, all Galerie and Village Park products are united by a common thread: a feeling of “unexpected happiness.” Throughout this year, we have seen so many sparks of joy and positivity when the world has needed it most. Family members regularly drop off treats and signs thanking staff for taking care of loved ones. Residents donated goody bags for first responders and continue to sew masks for local children. Village Park teamed up with the City of Alpharetta, Reeves Young, TEC, Crabapple Landscaping, and Whole Foods to bring a new pavilion to Wills Park. The examples of service, kindness, and encouragement go on and on. It has been truly amazing to watch the partnership between our employees, residents, families, and neighbors continue to grow. Together with all of you, Village Park has become so much more than a wonderful place. It has become a wonderful experience, an experience created and imagined by our hearts, by our instincts, and by you. Thank you for your support and we look forward to many more years of creating unexpected happiness for seniors, their families, and communities.

This is, hands down, the best experience for any appointment that we’ve ever attended. Every single person we interacted with was extremely kid-friendly, knowledgeable, upbeat and patient.

I thought I liked our old office, until I came here. It completely blew the last practice out of the water. This place deserves way more than 5 stars. We will absolutely be coming back for every visit and letting any friends with kids know about this place! — Amanda VanDerLeest

BEST DERMATOLOGIST

An interview with Dr. Taylor Brought to you by — Alyssa McNamara Premier Dermatology and Mohs Surgery of Atlanta Congratulations to Premier Dermatology and Mohs Surgery of Atlanta for its third year in a row of being voted Best Dermatologist and Best Vein Specialist of North Fulton! I decided to sit down with Dr. Brent Taylor and physician assistant Kathryn Filipek at Premier Dermatology to get their take on their success and to learn a bit more about them. Alyssa: Hey you two! So nice to see you guys again! I’ve previously had the pleasure of speaking with you both separately regarding Premier Dermatology and your particular contributions to the practice, but I wanted to take time to sit down with you both to hear your thoughts on your continued success. Dr. Taylor, congratulations on another win for Best of North Fulton 2020! This marks your 3rd year being named both Best Dermatologist and Best Vein Specialist in North Fulton since opening in 2017. That’s quite an accomplishment. To what do you attribute your continued success? Dr. Taylor: Thank you Alyssa! Well, as I’ve said in the past, I believe that my patients understand our sincerity and our dedication to our patients’ healthcare. Kathryn and I and our amazing team all honestly care about our patients and their well-being. I hope that that sincerity comes through during our interactions. We always strive to give our patients our complete attention and to learn more about an individual as a person as well as a patient. There are plenty of times when a patient brings something to our attention or compels us to do additional research, and Kathryn and I are constantly collaborating on our patients’ behalf. I believe that comes through. All of that, and my awesome dad jokes are a big hit. I’m a father of three boys ages seven, five and two, so I have plenty of time to practice my material. Kathryn: I agree with everything that Dr. Taylor said, especially how nice the patients are to laugh at his jokes. Our team really is wonderful. We have experienced and caring team members. And we have received a lot of compliments that the practice has a personal and “boutique” feel, even as we deliver care that is scientific and academic. Alyssa: Kathryn and Dr. Taylor, how is everything going in this odd Covid time? I believe Kathryn joined the practice in March? I bet that was an interesting time to expand? Dr. Taylor: We are beyond grateful for the addition of Kathryn! She really is a fantastic provider and is knowledgeable and experienced in dermatology.

Most importantly, our skillsets really complement one another. For example, my focus in the vein clinic portion of our practice has been on treating venous disease that results in leg swelling and pain, and Kathryn has years of experience performing aesthetically-focused cosmetic sclerotherapy. She brought PRP for hair rejuvenation to the practice as well as chemical peels and is an expert Botox® and filler injector. The addition of another provider also means that we are frequently able to accommodate patients for same day or next day appointments. Covid was inconvenient but the slowdown also allowed us to make sure Kathryn’s integration to the practice was seamless. Alyssa: Well I think that’s enough serious business for now. I thought we could ask a few casual questions to allow your readers get to know you both a little better. If you won the lottery tomorrow what would be the first thing you did after you cashed it? Brent: I would probably pay off the mortgages of my family and all my staff. And I would buy some new socks because mine are pretty sad right now. And some chocolate chip cookies. Kathryn: Flee the country and not tell my husband. No, seriously, after working so hard to put myself through college and my medical training, I would love to set up an educational fund for young adults from my hometown in Michigan so they could receive higher education and not have to take half of their adult life to pay it off. If you could immediately become fluent in something, what would it be? Brent: Italian. Feeling like a local in a foreign country has to be fun, and I think Italy tops my list. Kathryn: Spanish. I was able to apply a lot of my “Splanglish” while living in South Florida, but Dr. Taylor puts me to shame when he is able to communicate fluently, and I only understand a portion of what he or my patients are saying. What were you like in high school? Brent: I was very smart. And very naive. I had very little time for much besides keeping my nose to the grindstone but was still happy and people still joke that in the back of my head I seem to have The Girl From Ipanema playing on repeat. Kathryn: I moved halfway through my freshman year, so it took me a bit to find my place. I was outgoing and took part in Cross Country, Basketball, Track, several academic and service clubs, played piano and worked as a server at a restaurant. I also enjoyed a lot of time on the beach of Lake Superior (cold, but true)

Who is someone you look up to? Brent: My dad. Sounds cliché’ but it’s true. My dad is just such a wonderful man. He’s kind and patient and incredibly intelligent. He has worked extremely hard to accomplish everything he has in life and really instilled in me a strong work ethic and a compassionate heart. I am beyond fortunate for my family. Kathryn: My Grandmother. She grew up on a dairy farm on Prince Edward Island, Canada, and taught school in a one room schoolhouse until she went to nursing school in Ontario in her 20’s. She didn’t marry my Grandfather until her late 20’s, had her children in her 30’s and worked as a nurse in Detroit until her 70’s. She always had a positive outlook on life and a laugh that would turn into a “hissing fit” because of her asthma, which made all around her giggle. What do you do in your free time? Brent: I use those ten seconds to fantasize about having free time. I’m only half-joking. Hobbies are a bit on pause with three boys seven and younger. Every moment my wife and I have we try and do something for the kids. The park. Hiking, playing baseball in the backyard, reading together, teaching them to ride a bike, fishing, playing piano. I don’t have children that will just sit and watch a movie. I don’t know if it’s their age but they are just nonstop. My wife refers to them as tiny tornados. When I do have time again, I’d like to resume flying. I have my pilot’s license and love the beauty of the world seen from the air. Kathryn: Traveling if I have that much time. Otherwise running, golf, hiking, kayaking and family and friend time. Honestly, I love taking my dog for a walk on the greenway too! If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Brent: Is this my opportunity to plug Outback Steakhouse and hope they mail me an honorary-Aussie free-food-for-life card?

Kathryn: Soup. My Dad was our primary cook growing up and never wastes food. You can make soup out of anything. What is your idea of a perfect vacation? Brent: Watching fish swim around a coral reef in a sea so warm that you forget you’re even in the water. Kathryn: Oh, this is a fun question. Something to challenge myself. Going to a new place. Seeing something out of the ordinary. The last perfect trip I had was in Costa Rica, where I kayaked at night in bioluminescence water, climbed a 200 foot tree, hiked through the rain forest and swam in the river (yes, I got ticks). I even tried surfing and ate a termite! Flights and weather were perfect. Locals were amazing. Can’t wait for the next perfect vacation. What is something embarrassing about yourself? Brent: Um, I never remember birthdays or anniversaries etc. Not because I don’t remember what day they are but because I don’t ever know what date it currently is. Oh, and I once was backstage a Miley Cyrus concert. It was a friend’s fault I promise! Kathryn: I used to be amazing at remember peoples’ faces and names. Now I’ve turned into what I used to make fun of my mother for. Sigh. What is a long-term goal? Brent: More than anything I want my kids to grow up to reach their potential and be happy. Kathryn: Ditto to that. Happiness and health for my children and never stop learning.

Johns Creek Primary Care is an Internal Medicine practice which specializes in adolescents, adults, and seniors where quality, prevention and safety are our top priorities. We are honored to be voted the best Internal Medicine practice in North Atlanta for the 3rd straight year. We owe this success to our highly dedicated experienced low turnover staff since we opened in 2001. Over 80% of our staff have been with us 5 years or longer and of those, 33% have been with us 10 years or more. We are very proud of this achievement. Our practice has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for offering high quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients. As a testament to our focus on quality, we were the first practice in the Eastern United States last year to incorporate a new artificial intelligence (AI) program to diagnose significant diabetic retinopathy sooner than most of our ophthalmology colleagues. This FDA approved retinal photo AI read achieves 87% sensitivity and 90% specificity in finding this potentially blinding diabetic eye disease compared to an average of 41% sensitivity with board-certified ophthalmologists. We were also the 2nd practice in the U.S. to start diabetic neuropathy ultrasound treatments for diabetic peripheral neuropathy pain and numbness that has shown amazing results. Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, safety for our patients while deliver-

ing excellent healthcare has been our passionate goal. We were one of the first primary care practices in our area to adopt car visits and telemedicine visits in mid-March to minimize our patient’s exposure to Coronavirus during their visits. All sick patients are evaluated in their car and tested for COVID-19, strep throat, or flu if it is appropriate, or evaluated by a telemedicine visit to avoid spread to other patients. Only well patients and employees are allowed in our office after they pass a temperature check and symptom screen. Mask and social distancing are enforced. Intensified cleaning protocols are in place. Patients are placed in a private exam room as soon as possible after arrival. Employees wear appropriate personal protection equipment (PPEs) to avoid contracting COVID-19, and employee testing and quarantining is expedited if the need arises. Extended office hours starting at 7:00 AM Monday through Saturday help give our patients the flexibility they need in scheduling appointments. We offer an Optifast weight loss program, dietitian services, and clinical research opportunities at our location. Many diagnostic tests are performed in our office such as ultrasounds, ECHOs, nuclear stress tests, lung function tests, dementia screenings, and lab draws to increase convenience for our patients. Same day urgent appointments are available. Our office is located at 4365 Johns Creek Parkway, Ste 400 in Suwanee, Georgia 30024. Call 678-957-1910 if you want an appointment or visit www. JCPCP.com.

The Best Breakfast is here! Brought to you by – The Original Pancake House

We are humbled Brought to you by — Cue Barbecue

Sometimes it is overwhelming how loyal and kind our customers are. There are more and more restaurants moving into our wonderful area  and we wish them all the best; the restaurant business is not easy.  However, it is our passion.  We don’t have to go to work, we GET TO.  We GET TO make the best barbecue we know how to make. We GET TO put some sweet folks on the floor to serve you. And most of all, we GET TO see your saucy, smiling faces every day! For all of these “GET TO’s”, we are truly thankful. Hope to see you all soon! Cuebarbecue.com

Here at The Original Pancake House Alpharetta we do things differently than other breakfast restaurants. There are a lot of quality features that you can only get at our location in the ever growing breakfast market. For many years full service breakfast restaurants have been under served in the restaurant market arena. That is slowly becoming not the case as many new full service breakfast chains and franchises emerge on the scene. The Original Pancake House is a franchise and one of the oldest. OPH started franchising in 1954. We are unique in that we have not changed a thing since then. The menu and the recipes are the same. The quality and ingredients we use are uncompromised. Just a few examples:

We squeeze orange juice every morning. It takes 5 to 8 oranges to make a single glass of juice. We buy all of our eggs from a local egg farmer. He delivers hundreds of dozens of eggs to us several times a week and we hand crack them all. Other breakfast restaurants buy eggs that are bagged and cracked by a machine in advance. We clarify butter to season all of our pancake griddles and to cook all of the eggs in. Our pancake batter is made from scratch with our own sour starter. The list goes on. We are very proud to be once again voted Best Breakfast in The Best of North Atlanta and we want to thank our loyal clientele who obviously appreciates our uncompromising commitment to serving the same menu year after year after year without changing a thing.

We’re still the “Best Breakfast”!

Thank you for voting us Best Beverage/Wine Store in North Atlanta! Brought to you by – Deep Roots The votes are in! Deep Roots wins Best Beverage/Wine Store of North Atlanta! Why are we the best you ask? Deep Roots is a Wine Market & Tasting Room featuring domestic wines located in Historic Roswell. Guests can enjoy a selfservice tasting tour of wine country using our WineStation machines while browsing a broad selection of retail wines and merchandise. Sip by the taste, by the glass or by the bottle(s)!  Our tasting room, bar and lounge seating has a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. With 32 wines available to taste via smart card operated Napa Technology WineStation machines and over 300 different wines in stock, you will never run out of new wines to experience. Craft beer is also offered on tap and sparkling wines are available by the glass. You may be wondering how this trendy wine bar came about. Owner Dana Gurela developed a passion for wine after her first visit to Napa in 2009.  When Dana and husband Todd moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012, she turned that passion into an obsession. After living in California for five years, Gurela knew it was time to return home to her family in Georgia, but not without bringing a little piece of wine country with her. The name Deep Roots recognizes the vines’ struggle to survive in the vineyard and the connection to family here in Georgia. One of our greatest attributes is our staff. We are one big happy family and that truly shines through in the way we treat our customers. We feel so blessed to be able to work with such an amazing group of folks every day.

Atlanta & Ansley show resilience It’s all about people Brought to you by — Julie Harris VP Marketing & Culture, Ansley Atlanta Real Estate Within this year have been significant challenges for our communities, our neighbors and our world. In such a turbulent context it would be easy to assume that the business of buying HARRIS and selling homes would suffer. In Spring, sales slowed but did not come to a stop. We chose to focus on our clients, neighbors and locally owned businesses through phone calls, donating time and money, posting local favorites on our social media to promote business, and dropping by to say a socially distant hello with activities for the kids, meals, and maybe wine! We tend to be optimists and choose to see the glass half full—in that spirit, we have continued to move forward and serve…and business soared. When we hit the pause button on coming to the office in March, we thought it would be for two weeks and things would get back to normal. That is not at all what happened. But our local leadership and ability to pivot responsively served us well. Our strategy has always been to be genuine and bring value. Nobody wants to hear that you are number one during a pandemic. What you do

want to know is how your biggest investment, your home, is faring during these times? If you need to sell because you lost a job or want to move to a different area, what does that look like now and how would Ansley handle it? When buyers wanted to take advantage of the historic interest rates, they asked us how they could find a house when inventory is low and many homes have multiple offers. The real estate landscape tightened and became razor sharp so that everything happening required the utmost professional knowledge and savvy. And that’s where the Ansley advantage kicked in. Ansley is a smaller brokerage than the big box franchises. Our small size does not dim our significant stature, capabilities or contributions to North Atlanta. We had the honor of helping hundreds of people buy and sell during this pandemic. When you put people first, amazing things happen. When you show people you care, you spread love and empathy. When you work for your neighbors, you show them the value of trust. We are so happy and proud of our entire team, and especially want to honor Mary Lou Lanaux, Lara Dolan and the Craft Dolan Team for wins in their Best of North Atlanta categories. Ansley Atlanta is also very humbled and honored to have placed as first runner up for Best Brokerage in less than two years of being in Alpharetta. What a testament to our Ansley team and the trust North Atlanta has put in us. You like us—you really like us! We are happy to be in North Atlanta and looking forward to all that is ahead. Thank you!

Benefits of using a REALTOR® when going through the home buying and selling process Brought to you by – BILL RAWLINGS Senior Vice President & Managing Broker, North Atlanta Office Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International RAWLINGS Realty is honored to have been chosen as the 2020 Best Real Estate Brokerage of North Atlanta by APPEN Media Group for the fifth year in a row! We pride ourselves on creating relationships with our clients and successfully helping them find the homes of their dreams. Our focus is on our clients, as we provide million-dollar marketing for homes in all price ranges and believe that service defines the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand, not price point. There are numerous benefits to using an agent when you are in the market to

buy a new home, as this can be a stressful and intimidating process. Having a licensed professional to help walk you through the buying process can help to relieve the pressure and make your experience more enjoyable. Especially for a first-time home buyer, an agent will be by your side to answer your questions and concerns and prepare you for potential obstacles that may arise while professionally marketing your home to prospective buyers. Finding the right home for you: Once you determine what you are looking for, the next step will be for your REALTOR® to book appointments and walk you through potential homes. These appointments can help narrow down your criteria and determine what you truly desire in a home. Your REALTOR® will have the knowledge to explain the area, neighborhoods, schools and valuable information you will need to know before making a final decision to purchase a home.

2020

Negotiating an offer: Your agent will advise you on an acceptable offer price, while also helping you to negotiate a deal that could save you money. This is such a crucial part of buying a home, and it allows your REALTOR® to use their expertise in the negotiation process. Professional recommendations: There are so many aspects to buying a home and professional resources are always needed. Agents make suggestions on reliable sources they have used in the past, from a trustworthy mortgage broker to home inspectors – just another way a real estate agent can help to relieve stress during the process of finding a new home. Overcoming obstacles: During the due-diligence period, new issues can arise and a real estate professional can

help counsel you toward a solution. This is a time when negotiation is key and it is extremely helpful to have someone on your side who is knowledgeable, experienced, calm and in control, should a situation occur. Please keep Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty in mind next time you are in the market to buy a new home. Our trained sales professionals are the perfect guides to walk you through the buying and selling process. Visit AtlantaFineHomes.com or call our office at 770.442.7300 to allow one of our dedicated professionals assist you today.

Carlos Laverde, American Commerce Bank’s Atlanta Market President

Appreciating service in our community “A wonderful surprise!” That’s how Carlos Laverde, American Commerce Bank’s Atlanta market president, describes his response to ACB having been voted “Best Bank in North Atlanta” this year. “Last year we were voted “runner up”—and that in itself was impressive since we are only one branch of our bank. But this year, we won top place, which means that our single branch attracted more votes than other entire banks for this award! It makes me very proud of our team and the impact we must be making in our community”. American Commerce Bank operates from three locations: Johns Creek, Tallahassee, FL and its headquarters in Bremen, GA. Over the past several years, ACB has committed itself to market service, which has included sponsoring the Johns Creek Police Department’s annual “Torch Run” to benefit Special Olympics

and financial literacy seminars presented for community residents. Recently, in response to the Covid pandemic, ACB was proud to fund more than 150 loans to area businesses as part of the popular “PPP” lending program. “It is an honor that our contributions are being recognized”, adds Laverde. American Commerce Bank specializes in customized solutions for commercial and consumer banking customers. The bank offers market-leading deposit rates as well as convenient on-line banking and treasury management services. By structuring terms to the specific needs of borrowers, ACB is a champion of local business owners and community residents.

We thank you for the opportunity to fulfill our role as guides and advisors to our friends and neighbors.

Design-Build and why you need it Brought to you by — Remodeling Expo Center Design-Build is the lexicon used for a single company that provides both design services and construction services. When embarking upon a remodeling project both services are critical but how does a homeowner proceed? Call an architect, designer, builder? How do you know who you need and who to call first? “This is a very common scenario”, says John Hogan, owner of Remodeling Expo Center. “If the total project costs are under $250,000, then it usually means that hiring a design-build or design-remodel firm is the best answer. The reason is not solely due to the expense of multiple professionals’ its mainly due to the requirement of intricate and coordinated detail in relatively small spaces.

Design-Build refers to the simultaneous consideration of design elements and building implications. Its an efficient and productive process. Otherwise the design then build process happens sequentially and designers tend to design without buildability, or cost, limitations. This often results in unnecessarily expensive and delayed projects. A Design-Build firm is accustomed to working with many moving parts at all times: project cost, buildability, structure, furniture placement, colors, textures, lighting, accessibility, etc. “When all of these considerations are thoughtfully integrated: truly spectacular projects come to life” says Brittany Lingerfelt, Chief Designer at Remodeling Expo Center. “Within our design studio we show homeowners how they can express their style, even though they have no formal design training” There are many other reasons to hire a design-build firm including: having a single company accountable for the entire project, cost reduction, and timeliness. To learn more about Design-Build, contact The Remodeling Expo Center at 404 910-3969 or stop in the Design Center at 48 King Street, Roswell, GA 30075. www.RemodelingExpo.com.
