The technicians at Royal Treatment Window Tinting gussy up glass of all sorts, darkening residential and car windows, fixing cracked windshields, and installing automotive panes. The team of technicians specializes in high-end models from makers such as Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin, but is equally adept at working on regular rides or souped-up Barbie Mobiles. Using films from Sun-Gard, they carefully tint windows to protect cars and homes from the sun’s hot rays, and back their work with a lifetime warranty.

This expert training informs each of their services, from repairing rock chips in windshield glass to installing insulated glass in homes and offices.
The nonprofit Saferide America pursues a single, noble goal of keeping drunk drivers off the road. The volunteer-based program dispatches licensed drivers to bars, restaurants, and parties across Atlanta to pick up impaired clients and return them—and their cars—safely home. Divided into three branches of service, Saferide maintains on-call cars that cruise the streets from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m., daily, professional chauffeurs who pilot customers on preplanned nights out, and drivers at parties to drive home multiple guests. The organization raises funds through donations, and contributes money to children who have lost parents to drunk driving.
When Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers opened in 1979, it consisted of a small team of agents crammed into a single location. Today, the company encompasses more than 1,800 sales associates spread across 25 offices. The extraordinary growth is thanks in no small part to the work of Kevin Levent. Crowned CEO in the mid '90s, he completely revamped BHGRE Metro Brokers’ image, starting in the office. Italian light fixtures, contemporary artwork and furniture, exposed rafters, and coffee bars transform drab spaces into loft-like oases. Kevin also moved Metro Brokers under the umbrella of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, making its many services more accessible without having sandwich-boarded employees go door-to-door interrupting dinner parties. Today, their agents tackle everything from handling residential and commercial real estate to scoping out the lowest insurance and mortgage rates for clients. They also take time to train a new fleet of agents at BHGRE’s real-estate academy, which prepares students to ace the Georgia state exam.
