MEMORANDUM To: Metropolitan Police Department Detective Vincent Tuc5\ 11 From: Ann Marie Mehlerff\'f'"''v Re: Esquire Federal City Realtors Date: February 4,2010 Garson Claxton LLC represents Brandywine Crossing I Association (the "Association"). The Association has asked this firm to assist them in their attempts to try to get back from its former property management company, Esquire Federal City Realtors ("Esquire"), funds of the Association wrongfully retained by such property management company. The Association has requested us to seek criminal charges against Esquire. Following is a brief description of the history of the events surrounding this matter and the basis for the Association's complaint against Esquire. Background Esquire is a property management company located in the District of Columbia. Esquire and DBT Development entered into a Condominium Association Management Agreement, dated November 30, 2006 for the management by Esquire of the Brandywine Crossing I Condominium (the "Condominium") located at 701 Brandywine Street SE Washington, DC (the "Contract"). I have attached the Contract to this Memorandum as Exhibit A. DBT Development was the developer of the Condominium and has since relinquished control of the Condominium to the Association and in connection with such relinquishment, assigned the Contract with Esquire to the Association. Under the Contract, Esquire was responsible for the management of the Condominium including the collection of the monthly condominium fees from the Condo Unit owners and maintenance of all the financial books and records for the Association. Esquire also handled the payment of all bills, invoices and other obligations for the Association. Under the Contract, Esquire was required to maintain the following accounts for the Association: 1. All checking and savings accounts 2. All accounts for the investments of surplus cash Based on the monthly financial statements Esquire sent to the Association, Esquire had opened a checking account and a money market account on behalf of the Association. The last financial statement sent to the Association was for the month of March 2008. The March 2008 statement indicated that Esquire held a total of $146,912.61. I have attached the March 2008 financial statement to this Memorandum as Exhibit B. After the March 2008 financial statement, the Association never received another statement even though the Association did not terminate the Contract until February 17, 2009. The Association became dissatisfied with Esquire's performance and terminated the Contract on or about February 17, 2009.

Based on the Contract, upon termination, the Association and Esquire were to give a full accounting to each and sign a release. This accounting never happened. Releases were not signed and the funds Esquire was holding on behalf of the Association were never transferred to the Association. Basis for Complaint • As indicated above the Association terminated the Contract with Esquire on or about February 17, 2009. At the time of the termination, Esquire held approximately $146,912.61 that belonged to the Association. These funds are the condominium fees the individual condominium unit owners have been paying over the past few years. Upon termination, the Association requested Esquire to transfer the funds to Simmons Management Group, the property management company the Association hired to replace Esquire. Despite repeated attempts to reach Esquire by phone and email, the Association and this law firm have been unable to speak with a representative from Esquire. On October 23,2009, this firm sent a demand letter to Esquire requesting the transfer of the funds. A copy of that letter is attached to this memorandum as Exhibit C. To date Esquire has not responded to the letter. During the first two weeks of January, we tried unsuccessfully to reach Esquire again. This time their phones were disconnected. We were however able to leave a voicemail withMr.ChesterRansomofEsquireonJanuaryI8.201O.Todate.Mr. Ransom has not returned our call. As of the date of this Memorandum, Esquire is wrongfully holding funds belonging to the Association. We have spoken with Mr. Leon Lewis of the DC Real Estate Commission who has informed us that Esquire does not have the required property manager's license and that there have been numerous complaints filed against Esquire with the Commission.

Given the recent disconnection of Esquire's phone, there is a concern that Esquire may be in financial difficulty and may have wrongfully taken and used the Association's funds. Esquire's failure to respond to our letters, emails, and phone calls gives us great concern. Further, it appears that Esquire's treatment of the Association is not an isolated incident and there are other associations that have lodged complaints against Esquire and the individuals involved in Esquire. The assistance and the guidance of your department would be most appreciated.

VIA FEDERAL EXPRESS Mr. Chester Ransom Esquire Federal City Realtors 1420 N Street, NW Suite T-l Washington, DC 20005

RE: Condominium Association Management Agreement between DBT Development and Esquire Federal City Realtors ("Esquire"), dated November 30,2006 for the Brandywine Condominium I (the "Property Management Agreement").

Dear Mr. Ransom: This Firm represents the Brandywine Crossing I Condominium. In that regard I am contacting you about funds belonging to the Condominium that are being held by Esquire. Upon termination of the Property Management Agreement, Esquire was to transfer all funds held by Esquire but belonging to the Condominium including, but not limited to, monthly condominium fees and the Condominium's reserves, to the new property manager. To date all those funds have not been transferred. In addition, during the transition period between property managers, some condominium owners sent their monthly assessment fees to Esquire rather than the new property manager. Those funds also need to be transferred to the new property manager. Please call me as soon as possible so that I may give you the necessary information facilitate the transfer of the Condominium funds. I Claxton to
