We focus on various alternative commercial real estate financings with an emphasis on loans secured by commercial real estate and also on financing non-core assets, including ground up developments, as well as core assets, including office buildings, multi-family residences, shopping centers, and luxury residential estates. The loans consist of senior debt loans, mezzanine or subordinated loans, preferred equity, and other equity participation financing structures. Our operations are based primarily in

We have not yet achieved profitable operations and expect to incur further losses in the development of our business, cash needs to complete various transactions we have entered into and repay certain indebtedness, the result of which casts substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from business operations when they come due. We intend to meet our financial needs for operations by equity and/or debt financing and/or related party advances. In the event we are unable to borrow or raise funds needed for our business, or we are unable to repay our current obligations when due, we will have to seek additional financing, and no assurances can be given that such financing would be available on a timely basis, on terms that are acceptable or at all. Failure to obtain such additional financing could result in delay or indefinite postponement of our planned operations which would materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition and threaten our financial viability.

Any additional funds raised through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities will reduce the percentage ownership of our stockholders who may experience additional dilution and such securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of our common stock.
In the next six months, the company's goal is to achieve profitable operations through implementation of our proposed financing products and services.
We do not currently have any contractual restrictions on our ability to incur debt and, accordingly we could incur significant amounts of indebtedness to finance operations. Any such indebtedness could contain covenants which would restrict our operations.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We currently do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Emerging Growth Company
We are an "emerging growth company" under the federal securities laws and will be subject to reduced public company reporting requirements. In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an "emerging growth company" can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an "emerging growth company" can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We are choosing to take advantage of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards.
Critical Accounting Policies
Our financial statements are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in
Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 1 of our financial statements. While all these significant accounting policies impact our financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates. Our management believes that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause an effect on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report.
We will be primarily engaged in the sourcing of and providing advice in connection with second- and third-tier financing for commercial development and construction. Revenues are generated from fixed non-refundable processing fees associated with the contractual agreement. Revenues are recorded at the time each contract is signed and fees remitted.
The fees are non-refundable and fixed, which is unconditionally earned and is not contingent on success factors. We recognize revenues as amounts become billable in accordance with contract terms. These revenues based on contractual agreement with us are recognized as the contracts are signed and the fees are received, and amounts are earned in accordance with the
In the past our fees have not been refundable, which resulted in unclear contracts and several lawsuits. Our contracts have been rewritten to clearly state the processing fees as non-refundable, and customers are clearly informed of the fees and policies. If the Company elects to refund any processing fees, determined on a case by case basis, a loss provision will be recorded in the period in which the loss first becomes probable and reasonably estimable. Contract losses are determined by the contractual agreement and the amount of processing fees associated with the customer. There were
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts of our financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate fair value because of their short maturities.
Investments in and Advances to Unconsolidated Entities
The trends, uncertainties or other factors that may negatively affected the Company's business and the finance, construction and new development industries in general may also affect the unconsolidated entities in which the Company may have investments. The Company will review each of its investments in unconsolidated entities on a quarterly basis to determine the recoverability of its investment. The Company evaluates the recoverability of its investment in unconsolidated entities, which entails a detailed cash flow analysis using many estimates including but not limited to expected sales pace, expected sales prices, expected incentives, costs incurred and anticipated, sufficiency of financing and capital, competition, and market conditions. When markets deteriorate and it is no longer probable that the Company can recover its investment in a joint venture, the Company impairs its investment. If a joint venture has its own loans or is principally a joint venture to hold an option, such impairment may result in the majority or all of our investment being impaired.
Income Taxes - Valuation Allowance
Significant judgment is required in estimating valuation allowances for deferred tax assets. In accordance with ASC 740, a valuation allowance is established against a deferred tax asset if, based on the available evidence, it is more likely than not that such asset will not be realized. The realization of a deferred tax asset ultimately depends on the existence of sufficient taxable income in either the carryback or carry forward periods under tax law. We periodically assesses the need for valuation allowances for deferred tax assets based on ASC 740's "more-likely-than-not" realization threshold criterion. In our assessment, appropriate consideration is given to all positive and negative evidence related to the realization of the deferred tax assets. This assessment considers, among other matters, the nature, frequency, and severity of current and cumulative income and losses, forecasts of future profitability, the duration of statutory carryback or carry forward periods, its experience with operating loss and tax credit carry forwards being used before expiration, and tax planning alternatives.
In accordance with ASC 740, we assesses whether a valuation allowance should be established based on its determination of whether it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Our assessment of the need for a valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets includes assessing the likely future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in its consolidated financial statements or tax returns. We base our estimate of deferred tax assets and liabilities on current tax laws and rates and, in certain cases, on business plans and other expectations about future outcomes. Changes in existing tax laws or rates could affect actual tax results and future business results may affect the amount of deferred tax liabilities or the valuation of deferred tax assets over time. Our accounting for deferred tax assets represents its best estimate of future events using the guidance provided by ASC 740.
Due to uncertainties in the estimation process, particularly with respect to changes in facts and circumstances in future reporting periods (carry forward period assumptions), it is reasonably possible that actual results could differ from the estimates used in our historical analyses. Our assumptions require significant judgment because the residential homebuilding industry is cyclical and is highly sensitive to changes in economic conditions. If our results of operations are less than projected and there is insufficient objectively verifiable evidence to support the likely realization of its deferred tax assets, a valuation allowance would be required to reduce or eliminate its deferred tax assets
Stock Based Compensation
From time to time, we have compensated our officers and vendors with the issuance of stock. The value of the transaction is determined by the trading price on the day of the transactions. We anticipate that we will continue to compensate our officers with stock and traditional payments in the future.
Since the stock price is variable and there is no assurance the stock price will remain at any level, the amount of stock issued for services in kind or bonus awards will vary, and dilution may occur.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
There are no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.
