OUR MISSION
To provide our clients with the best, most reliable consulting services available anywhere
at any price.

OUR WEBSITE
Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible
and useful. The objective of our website is to organize the world’s real estate information
and make it universally accessible and useful. Sometimes it pays to play “Follow the
Leader.”

OUR WORK PLAN, A TECHNICAL / FORENSIC APPROACH
We believe the prerequisites of a successful real estate appraisal, consulting, and
valuation firm are diversity, an extensive background, and specialized knowledge that
when utilized appropriately are the catalysts for complex problem solving. Accordingly we
have developed a methodology and study approach which exploits the most recent
developments in computer technology for both data analysis and information
management. In addition to the commercially available software, utilized by our firm, such
as Word Perfect, MicroSoft Office, Generic CADD, FloorPlan, and Plan Ease we have
designed analytical software using Lotus 1-2-3, Fortran IV, and even Basic-A. Our
proprietary software was designed to prepare market data analysis, building load and
function analysis (based upon key design ratios), standard and discounted cash flow
analysis, sales comparison analysis, multiple regression analysis, lease vs. buy analysis,
and a complete development-investment-and-financial analysis au fait participating
mortgages and equity structures providing simple, cumulative, and compound
preferences. (IRS TAX Appraiser Services, assessment tax appeals appraiser)

In the areas of land use (highest and best use), economics, market analysis, and planning
our endeavors have resulted in the production of several computer models that are
capable of measuring the benefits and disadvantages of planned and sporadic growth
patterns. Aided by tools such as export base multipliers, location quotients, input/output
analysis, and aerial photography we have successfully tracked and identified, economic
and social factors, which have lead to regional prosperity or blight.

We are aware that some jurisdictions may have laws, administrative rules, regulations, or
ordinances that stipulate requirements in the valuation of real estate within their
jurisdictions. We are then bound to utilize these requirements and comply with USPAP
under the Jurisdictional Exception Rule.

We are well aware that we are in an information driven industry and to insure ready
access to the best and most recent information effecting the real estate industry, we have
made a significant investment in our library which contains Expert Witness in Civil Trails by
Mark A Dombroff, Construction Arbitration by Thomas Oehmke, and a complete set of the
following: California Real Estate Law 2d., by Miller and Stark; selected volumes, including
The California Eminent Domain Law of Deering’s California Codes published by Bancroft
Whitney. And, a complete text of the following: Section 49, Code of Federal Regulations,
Part 24 – The Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition for Federal
and Federally Assisted Programs; The Appraisal Guide, which provides guidance on
appraising real estate for acquisition under 49 CFR, Part 24b, May 2001; The Uniform
Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisition, 1992; Title 2, California Code of

OUR COMPANY HISTORY
Founded in 1984 along with our subsidiary, the Property Inspection and Reporting
Service of Southern California (PIRS), we have successfully completed a variety of
assignments including administration of the Los Angeles County Housing Rehabilitation
Loan Program (HRLP). Our administration of the HRLP provided us the opportunity to
assist with the rehabilitation of residential properties owned by people with low and
moderate incomes. The scope of our administrative responsibilities was general in nature
and included the following: notifying property owners of available funds, qualifying
applicants based upon income and need, project planning, preparation of bid documents
- including plans and specifications, contractor selection, and construction monitoring on
one to four family residences. At the risk of sounding boastful we proudly say that of the
six companies contracted by the County of Los Angeles, the PIRS/Harris Company alone,
was successful in making loans with 100% of the funds allocated to our firm.

On July 15, 2001 we were notified by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles,
California that our proposal to provide their agency with both Fair Market Value Appraisal
Services and Real Estate Physical Inspection Services had been accepted. We anxiously
await the execution of these contracts and servicing the needs of this well respected
agency.

Also in 2001 we were approved to prepare real estate valuations for the Los Angeles
Unified School District. To date we have completed one limited-summary, acquisition
appraisal on a R.V. Storage Facility. The function of this assignment was to assist the
LAUSD in the evaluation and acquisition of the real estate interest as required for the
Woodlawn Elementary Expansion Project.

On July 1, 2001 we, once again (1997-2001), were awarded contracts to provide real
estate appraisal services to the County of Los Angeles, California. The first of which is
from the Community Development Department which has an aggregate compensation of
$380,000 and the second is from the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles with
an aggregate compensation of $100,000. This follows the last year of a three contract to
provide Real Estate Acquisition Appraisal and Consulting Services to, the
Economic/Redevelopment Division of the Community Development Commission of the
County of Los Angeles. Appraised property types have ranged from small residential and
commercial properties to large commercial/industrial sites. Appraisal functions have
ranged from “acquisition” to “finance” to “sale” and from “as-is” to “as proposed” or “in
reuse.” Communities include: West Altadena, Marvilla, Willowbrook, East Los Angeles,
and East Rancho Dominguez. While these appraisals are prepared in compliance with
the State of California Eminent Domain Law, the likelihood of any forthcoming
condemnation action is minimal.

From 1998 to the Present and for four years (1989-1993) under contract, we have
provided real estate consulting and appraisal services to the Community Redevelopment
Agency of the City of Los Angeles. These services include: Market and Fair Market Value
Appraisals on Commercial (Office/Retail) Properties, Special Use Properties (several
restaurants and a 29,000 square foot movie theater), Agency Owned Properties (most
notably one Recreation Center); and “Before” and “After” Rehabilitation Appraisals on
Single Family Residences, Multiple Family Residential Properties, Residential Community
Care Facilities, Affordable Housing, and even Single Room Occupancy Housing. In our
years of service we completed 98% of our assignments on time and error free.
Communities include: Downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, Korea Town, South-Central,
Pico-Union, Crenshaw, Boyle Heights, San Pedro, and Watts.

From 1997 to present we have assisted the Commerce Community Development
Commission with a number of Appraisal Assignments on vacant and improved Multifamily
Residential, Commercial, and Light Industrial Sites.

Just recently we were Certified by the Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC), a newly
formed agency of HUD, who awarded us a sub-contract to produce physical inspections
and provide financial information for HUD-insured and assisted housing. The purpose of
the Inspection Contract is to inspect properties with HUD-held mortgages, properties for
which HUD acts as the Section 8 contract administrator, and properties owned by Public
Housing Agencies. We look forward to assisting Secretary Cuomo with the
implementation of his HUD 2020 Management Reform Plan who’s goal is “to restore public
trust in HUD and executing its mission to ensure decent, safe, and sanitary housing in
good repair.”

From 1995 to date, we were given the enviable opportunity of providing Real Estate
Disposition Consulting and Appraisal Services to the Nations Largest Purchaser of First
Trust Deeds and Mortgages, the Federal National Mortgage Association, FannieMae. To
date we have provided Rehabilitation and Sales Consulting along with “As-Is” and “As-
Repaired” Valuations on more than 475 residential properties and have played a
significant role in assisting with the disposition of hundreds of Real Estate Owned (REO)
properties. We have been over 99% effective in meeting our 7 day verbal, and 10 day
written appraisal turnaround.

In 1994, we began providing acquisition consulting and appraisal services to the
Community Development Commission, County of Los Angeles for its Low Income Housing
Program. They designed this program to provide County owned, low income and Section
8 housing, extraneous to conventional housing projects. Its objectives are to acquire
vacant land or distressed multifamily residential properties and build or rehabilitate these
properties to provide “decent, safe, and sanitary” housing for needy families. To date we
have participated in the creation of more than 100 qualified units, either by site location
and acquisition negotiation, or by providing real estate appraisal services. Communities
include: Florence, East Los Angeles, and Willowbrook.

In 1991, we provided instrumental assistance, in the form of acquisition consulting and
appraising, with the Freedom Ford Relocation Project, a proposed 3.5 acre
redevelopment project, located within the City of Lynwood (a single $25,000+
assignment). We can handle the big jobs. Unfortunately the economic viability of this
project could not be established, and therefore, it was abandoned. We take the upmost
pride in our contribution to the completion of the “Lynwood Towne Center,” a 10-acre
Commercial Redevelopment Project, which included acquisition consulting, planning,
feasibility analysis, and real estate valuations on commercial and light industrial properties
within the project area. [Commercial Appraiser Los Angeles (LA CA)]
