May 4, 2010

Dear Ivan Nichols,

We would like to thank you for granting us the opportunity to provide you with our
seasoned experience in determining the correct value for your property and providing this
information to the county appraisers office for a reduction in your property taxes. As we
are required to submit our petition by no later than August 1, 2010, it is important that we
get started with the service in a timely manner to ensure everyone is helped.

Please find attached the service agreement and enrollment package for your review and
approval. Please complete the enrollment package and fax to (904) 276-1600. We
recommend that you contact our representatives to confirm receipt of your enrollment
package to avoid any unnecessary delays so we may comply with the August 1, 2010
deadline for petition and appeals.

Upon engagement, our staff will immediately conduct a thorough evaluation and market
study and advance forward in preparation of our submission of evidence that justifies a
reduction of your property taxes. Please understand that most real estate properties are
assed and over taxed, costing homeowners thousands of dollars.

Upon engagement, you may take rest in our service that we will complete the petition and
appeal process. On occasion you will be contacted for additional information and
provided progress updates. There is a onetime administration fee of $250.00 for our
services which includes all filing fees as well as petitions, appeals, and appraiser services.
Please keep in mind you will recoup the fee within your first year of savings. As we
strive to keep the cost affordable for homeowners in need of our service, we rely upon
referrals from satisfied clients. Should you know of any other homeowner’s that would
benefit from such service, we would be happy to assist them as well, and would be
willing to offer a referral fee of $20.00 per client.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at (904) 375-2667.
Office hours are from 9:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Saturday. We look forward to
providing you with a service that will yield great savings!
