Subject: Letter of Recommendation

To Whom it May Concern,

Bill Hoffman was retained by the Mirabella Board of Directors to handle the Wind and Flood Insurance Claims for the damage caused by hurricane Ivan on September 16, 2004.

The manner in which Bill took care of all the administrative procedures was outstanding. He was confronted with unreasonable requests from the insurance company adjusters but overcame all obstacles in a timely and professional manner. He displayed a positive "can do" attitude during the total settlement period.

Bill possesses the knowledge and skills needed to settle any and all types of claims in an industry that requires detailed, complex reports to support the claim of the insured client. Bill and his staff communicated in a clear and concise manner with all parties involved in the insurance settlement.

Mirabella's Board of Directors could not have selected a better person to handle the insurance claims. Bill Hoffman and his company, Affiliated Adjusters, Inc., is the first company we will call when another hurricane occurs. Bill charges a reasonable fee for his services and truly earns every dollar paid. If you need to get an insurance settlement prepared and paid properly, Bull Hoffman is the person you need. Please feel free to contact me at 540-635-5011 if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Arthur R. Behnke
Vice President, Mirabella Board of Directors
