Technologically Innovative Site Promises Streamlined Services To Company's Clients and National Vendor Network

Dallas, TX (August 1, 2005) - Ameristar continued its march towards becoming the industry leading provider of real estate information and transaction management solutions by announcing today the launch of its newly consolidated and technologically innovative website. This website provides information on all of the products and services offered by the Ameristar Family of Companies, as well as a centralized location to interact with both their Clients and their elite National Vendor Network.

"Ameristar has completed an arduous process of compiling all of its marketing materials and placing them in one centralized location for clients to see more specifically what the Ameristar Family of Companies can do for them" said Ken Mask, Executive Vice President and Director of Sales and Marketing. "With the completion of our new site we are now ready to unveil some exciting new innovations and refinements we have been testing for numerous months..such as online ordering, order tracking and the immediate retrieval of completed work orders from all of our product and service lines. This is really going to give us the competitive advantage we have been seeking and should truly allow us to distinguish ourselves in this competitive industry". The website location for Ameristar is at www.ameristarusa.com. The website is hosted locally by Ameristar and has been structured to allow them a streamlined process to continue to launch innovative, business-to-business, e-commerce solutions.

Manuel Martinez, an Executive Vice President and Director of Operations stated "We have been actively recruiting vendors since 1990 and with the developments that were made with this website to allow vendors to go directly online and fill out our online application, it is going to revolutionize the way that we do business. We are now going to be able to process their applications from a single website making the process more efficient and effective and ultimately giving our clients superior customer service and support." Ameristar has developed an elite, National Vendor Network of thousands of abstractors, property research specialists, appraisers, signing agents, notaries, attorneys, closing agents and other real estate professionals, literally covering every area of the country. Moreover, with the stringent review process that is required for approval, this will make it more efficient on future vendors to become a member of our elite National Vendor Network because they can go online, at their convenience, and fill out the comprehensive application to begin the process while allowing the Ameristar internal review team the opportunity to conduct all of their review and analysis in a digital form immediately upon submission. This site will also allow Ameristar more interaction with their vendors, particularly with tracking appointment times and reporting delays and concerns, ensuring that clients will get the answers they need, when they need them.
