Winner Best: Financial Advisor


s

By Carol R. Percy

When Melanie Bergevin, a financial advisor with Edward Jones


in Lincoln, graduated from college with a business degree, she
planned to pursue a career in management and marketing.
However, in 2000, her life took an abrupt detour. While jogging, she was hit by an uninsured driver and suffered a broken
back and leg. After six months of physical therapy, she was able
to walk again.
But then came the medical bills.
It was pretty devastating but a huge lesson in insurance,
Bergevin said.
The good news was that the accident and the stretch of time
away from work fostered a life-changing career shift.
Bergevins financial ethic developed in her teens when
she saved and invested money earned from part-time jobs.
Following the accident, she decided to put that gift for money
management to use by helping others.
I decided that helping people with their money is how I can
give back, Bergevin said. I can show people how your life can
change in a split second and how it pays to be prepared when
it does.

Melanie Bergevin was awarded best financial


advisor.

Eleven years ago, Bergevin opened an Edward Jones financial services office on
Del Webb Boulevard in Lincoln Hills that she operates with Cindy White, her office
administrator.
Bergevin said that financial goals deserve a face-to-face conversation.
We can help people prepare for retirement, save for education and be a tax-smart
investor, Bergevin said.
The most valuable service that Bergevin provides is growing and protecting a
clients wealth. She enjoys getting to know clients and gaining their trust, Bergevin
said.
Its truly humbling being able to really make a difference in peoples lives. Its an
honor helping people, Bergevin said.

DVD movies, a blanket and a hand paraffin treatment.
We pride ourselves on delivering comfortable
dentistry but some people may still be anxious or
nervous, Espiritu said. During your visit, you can
snuggle under a warm blanket in our relaxing chairs,
watch TV or a DVD movie from our LCD monitors or
listen to music.
Espiritu also offers oral conscious sedation, carefully monitored medication, to relieve patient anxiety
during procedures, said Lincoln Smiles staff.
Our goal is to transform routine health care into
a truly pleasant experience. You might find yourself

As a former City Councilman and mayor of Lincoln,


Primo Santini has deep roots in the Lincoln community.
In 1984, he purchased the former Grey Brothers Insurance agency and set up shop as Cornerstone Associates
Insurance Services, Inc.
Along with his business co-owner, David Bonillo,
Santini offers an array of insurance policies for home,
auto, life, business, commercial auto, farm, workers
compensation, nonprofits, agriculture, hard-to-insure
risks and more.
As a full-service independent agency affiliated with
Granite Insurance Service, Cornerstone can place policies
with more than 40 property and casualty companies and
has access to more than 50 life insurance companies,
Santini said.
Cornerstones top priority is to consult with clients in
order to understand their insurance needs and to insure
that they are properly covered.
Our primary market is and has always been Lincoln

the choices and services of a large agency but with the


friendliness of a small town, Santini said.
The companys goals include finding services that specifically benefit a client and choosing the best insurance
policy for a client at competitive prices. An important
aspect of service is the personal contact with a local
agent, Santini said.
We pride ourselves on being able to provide the choices

By Carol R. Percy

When Shad Derifield and Brian Pierce Jr., founded Energy Saving
Pros in 2008, they had two main goals: they wanted to improve
their local community as well as help customers both go green
and realize a fast return on energy investments.
The company offers three main energy-saving solutions to
homeowners and business owners, said Ryan Riley, the companys
director of marketing and communications.
Solar can help eliminate your energy bill, LED (lighting) can save
you money and time, and insulation can help make your home efficient and reduce allergens and pollutants in your home, Riley said.
The company designs, develops and installs custom solar
photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions for residential, commercial,
agricultural, industrial, educational and municipal clients. They
offer experience in projects of all sizes, from large agricultural, to
commercial to small residential projects, according to their website
information.
Energy Saving Pros not only offers affordable high-end American-made panels and products, they are invested in their local
community.
In the past year, we have given over $250,000 to local charities,

schools, and community projects, Riley said.


The companys wide range of products include polyurethane foam
insulation, radiant barrier, blown insulation, attic air sealing, insulation removal, custom PV solar systems with both ground mounts
and roof mounts, PV Solar structures and carports, and LED lighting retrofitting for homes and businesses, according to Riley.
We also offer a layaway plan for our solar division that allows
homeowners the ability to set an install date four to six months
in advance, and because they are willing to set an install date so
early, we will offer them extremely low prices for our solar services,
he said.
Customers are impressed with the companys service ethic, Riley
said.
Our customers say that we have extremely personable and
professional sales and office staff and that we truly care about the
customer and aim to provide the best service in the industry, Riley
said.

Crawford Orthodontics features high-quality customer service


Dr. Brian Crawford is hooked on transforming
smiles.
As a specialist in orthodontic care for children and
adults, he enjoys getting to know patients and watching orthodontics make a difference in their lives.
Orthodontics can help improve a childs self-esteem, he said. Its my favorite part (of the business)
seeing my patients, especially kids, transform over
time.
Crawford opened his office near Twelve Bridges
Drive in 2008.
An orthodontic specialist for more than 11 years,
Crawford offers a variety of products such as traditional metal braces, complimentary tooth-colored
braces, clear braces, Invisalign invisible braces for
adults and teens, retainers and night-guards.
Patients say they like the attention paid to
high-quality customer service.
In order to accommodate patients, Crawford offers
flexible payment plans, a comfortable waiting room

and longer office hours.


We bend over backwards to try to accommodate
and please, Crawford said. Our flexible payment options take away financial barriers to patients getting
the treatment they need and want. My team and I
really care for our patients and their families.
Crawford fosters a no rushed atmosphere, taking
extra time to ensure that patients understand their
options for treatment.
The office features waiting-room entertainment
such as a Play station, X-Box and iPods, according to
website information.
Open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through
Fridays, the practice seeks to make appointments
convenient for busy patients, Crawford said. See the
practices website for specific details.
We are open more days a month than all other
orthodontists in Lincoln combined, Crawford said.
(And) in October, we should be rolling out our
digital-impression scanner, which uses a camera and
reduces the need for messy impressions.

He had a collapsed lung and was badly bruised, said Audrey Conely, Critter Creeks office manager. We hospitalized
him for a day but now hes doing OK. Hes just a brand new

For 15 years, Critter Creek has helped pets in the Lincoln

With two veterinarians on staff, they see more than 30 pets

In March, the hospital moved to Gateway Drive and added

Winner Best: Attorney

By Carol R. Percy

Juliette Robertson was a medical student when


she decided to shift her studies and attend law
school.
I went to law school because too many doctors
I met in my pre-med studies and internships were
dissatisfied with their career choice and advised
me to find another way to advocate for patients,
Robertson said.During law school, I discovered
health law studies, and while practicing health
law, I discovered estate planning and estate
litigation.
In 2013, Robertson joined Adams & Hayes
Law in Lincoln. When Therese Adams retired in
2015,Robertson formed Robertson-Adams Trust
and Estate Attorneys. In addition to Robertson,
the firm employs associate attorneys, Michelle A.
Martin and Heidi L. Steinke.
The most valuable service that Robertson-Adams offers customers is time, Robertson said.
All we have to sell is our time and expertise

and we are pretty generous with it. We do not


nickel and dime our clients, Robertson said,
and will take as much time as needed to
properly educate each person and make sure they
understand what they are signing, administering
or fighting about.
The firm specializes in planning, administration
and litigation.
Clients tell Robertson they like the firms flexibility and accessibility.
They say that we are skillful and creative in
our approach to their needs, and that we are
accessible and flexible with our time, she said.
We understand that not everyone can make it in
during office hours, especially if their needs are
urgent ones.
Robertson said that she is honored to have
been voted Best of the Best.
I work hard every day to be the best attorney to
my clients and the best employer to my staff and
will not disappoint, Robertson said.

Byrds Cleaning Service is a family affair


While attending Lincoln High School in the mid-1980s, Jackie
Byrd, owner-operator of Byrds Complete Cleaning Service,
cleaned a neighbors home for spending money.
That experience launched a lifetime commitment to working
with residents to provide good service.
Back in those days, I was just looking to earn a little pocket
change to buy (music) cassettes but I loved the way customers
reacted to their clean houses, Byrd said. Theyd say, Oh my
God, it smells wonderful in here.
After helping out for years in family businesses, Byrd formed
her cleaning service four years ago. She has four helpers, all
family members, that include her mother, Judy Arellano; sisters,
Josie Arellano and Joann Cobleigh; and niece, Brittany Smedley.
When needed, her entire family helps out and they enjoy working
together, she said.
Since the company uses a small trustworthy team of cleaning
professionals, customers get the same team for each cleaning
visit, Byrd said, and not a different group of people.
The result is a consistently cleaned home by the same responsible team each and every time, according to Byrd.

way wed do our own carefully and thoroughly, she said.
Byrd enjoys getting to know her customers.
(I like) building long-lasting customer relationships and
seeing the smiles on the faces of our wonderful clients and the
positive feedback on our Facebook business page, Byrd said.
Byrds Complete Cleaning Service serves customers in Lincoln,
Roseville, Rocklin, Wheatland, Sheridan and Ophir. Byrds offers
regular commercial and residential cleaning, facility maintenance, deep-cleaning and move-in and move-out services on a

traditional mold.
Spending enough time with a client is crucial to getting them what they need, Tobias
said.
When it comes to qualifying for a mortgage, people do not always realize that they
can afford to buy a home, Tobias said.
Even considering the intricacies of
mortgage lending, people are still the most
important part of his service equation, Tobias
said.
So many mortgage professionals often
forget that there are real people involved in
these transactions, Tobias said. Families
count on us to make sure things run smoothly, and if they dont, it can turn their life
upside down. I take this to heart with every
transaction.

Wave Broadband: meeting customers wants and needs


By carol percy

Although Wave Broadband offers Internet services in Washington, Oregon and California, customers enjoy the companys local
accessibility.
Founded in 2003, Wave acquired Starstream Communications
in June, 2007 and now provides residential and business class
service in the following communities: Rocklin, Lincoln, Loomis,
Auburn, Colfax, West Sacramento, Dixon, Winters and Woodland,
according to Jesse Gregory, Waves vice president of sales.
The most valuable service that Wave offers customers is choice
and control, Gregory said.
For example, residential customers can subscribe to Internet service without signing up for cable service packages, Gregory said.
We allow our customers to choose from a variety of products
and services that suit their needs before ours, he said.
For residential customers, specialty services include fast
Internet speeds and various levels of video service and equipment, such as high definition digital video recorders, home
phone service, and bundled entertainment channels. Commercial
customer services include small business Internet and phone, and
enterprise, wholesale and carrier class Internet.

The peer-to-peer connections allow for faster streaming and a


secure connection.
Because of these peer-to-peer connections, 73 percent of all
surfing and streaming traffic remains on Waves network and
never touches the public Internet, he said.

Dr. Grover Lee, winemaker and owner of Wise Villa Winery,


was raised in Californias Central Valley winemaking region.
He worked in the grape vineyards and wineries in high school
and during summers while earning his B.S. degree in biological science and chemistry.
Studying wine, wine regions and winemaking techniques
was part of his passion for learning during his dual degree
for years of Ph.D. work in biochemistry and his doctorate in
clinical pharmacy.
His wine and medical knowledge continued as he received
his medical school board certification in managed care
medicine. Many years of European travels and learning from
world-class winemakers helped develop his European-influenced winemaking style.
In 2005, Lee planted his first vines on the Wise Villa estate
in the rolling hills east of Lincoln. And 10 years later in 2015,
Wise Villa Winery was awarded the Golden State Winery of the
Year (No. 1 Winery in California) from the California State Fair,
receiving the highest number of the highest-scoring quality
wines. Not Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles or any winery in California came close to the awards received by Wise Villa Winery.

Today, the property includes 26 acres of vineyards, a winery,


tasting room and a bistro that is open Wednesdays through
Sundays for lunch, and dinner and live music every Friday
night. On Saturday, many events are scheduled.
Wise Villas mission is to transport customers to a European
wine vacation.
I want people to feel like theyve stepped into a Tuscan villa
in Italy and to enjoy the picturesque rolling hills of vineyards,
wines, and farm fresh food, Lee said.
It has to be more than just great wine. The whole experience
of food, wine, ambience, and service has to be fantastic, Lee
said.
Lee and his staff has to pay attention to every detail to
assure the Wise Villa Winery trip to Europe becomes an experience patrons will want to revisit again and again.

Winner Best: Pizza

Journal Staff

The flavors of Old Town Pizza have stayed the same since its Auburn
inception, offering families delectable pizza while expanding to
Lincoln and Roseville.
Even the recipes have stayed true to Brian and Maureen Hayes
original dough and menu.
The dough and other recipes set us up for success, said Russ
Yeager, marketing director and co-owner. We want it to be very family
friendly . You come in and youll be taken care of.
The snoring miner has also stayed, to show even hard-working
miners would eat and rest there. The restaurant is full service, offering a variety of specials, beer, salad, many sandwiches, stuffed bell
peppers and gluten-free options.
Reese Browning, CEO, worked with them in the Auburn location,
learning to run the pizza restaurant before he and his family purchased it in 2002. They have been winning the Best of the Best award
every year since. Brownings kids learned serving and management
while his parents specialized in decorating, maintenance and safety.
Since it opened in 1999, area youth have worked there, now for generations, Yeager said.

436 Lincoln Blvd., Suite 102 and 202, Lincoln


(916) 645-7677 otpizza.net

Older brothers have gone on to college and the younger ones come
in, Yeager said. We want to be a place thats cool to work at.
The business grew in 2004 with a new Lincoln Location. Reeses son,
Mason, was general manager and it has won Best of the Best for Lincoln from 2005 until now. Other family members have taken over since.
The business grew again in 2012 with an OTP To Go in Lincoln,
and in 2015, its biggest growth yet: An 8,000-square-foot Roseville
location. Through it all, Yeager said the community-focused values
remained.
When it comes to our marketing dollar, a lot of money goes back
to the community. We try never to say no, Yeager said, as long as
donations are direct to charities or schools. We like giving back and
supporting Auburn, having everyone be successful.
This July, that means Customer Appreciation Month: 50 percent off Old Town Pizza in Lincoln.
medium and large pizzas and 25 percent off small gluten-free pizzas
on Tuesdays. On Sunday, Happy Hour is all day.
