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 Regulations, Office of Public School Construction, Section 1859.44.1, Site Acquisition Guidelines; Title 5, California Code of
Regulations, Education, Section 1400, Minimum Standards; Title 25, California Code of Regulations, Housing and Community Development, Section 6182,
Acquisition; The California Health and Safety Code Division 24, Section 33000, en seq - The California Community Redevelopment Law; The California
Evidence Code Section 810-824, Evidence of Market Value of Property; The California Code of Civil Procedure Section 1258.210-1258.300, Discovery-

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)]
