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.
