Dear Gary,

My family's relationship with your firm goes back to 1947, when my father purchased his first California real estate investment from your father.

In the past 20 years, I have invested in eight properties with your company, both directly and as trustee for my daughters. Your management company negotiated the purchases, set up the investment vehicles in conjunction with an attorney, and then takes care of all aspects of property management. These include collecting rents, making distributions, negotiating leases, and maintaining the condition of the property. The depth of my trust is reflected in the large number of investments I have chosen to make with your company. I always have found you available to answer questions and deal with other issues way beyond those required for property management. The personal quality of your service cannot be found elsewhere. I have encouraged my friends to take advantage of this amazing situation.

Finally, I want to mention that these investments provide more liquidity than the typical real estate investment. This derives from the cooperative nature of the investing group. Thus, if a partner dies and needs cash for estate taxes, the other investors have been willing to purchase the deceased's share. No other manager provides this sort of flexibility for his clients.
