                                            BROKER AGREEMENT

This Broker Agreement ("Agreement") is entered into on                                   20         by and between CAPSTONE DIRECT, INC.

("Lender"), and                                 DBA:                                 , ("Broker") with reference to the following:

   A. The parties wish to establish a relationship whereby Broker will, from time to time and at its option, submit completed application
packages for mortgage loans ("Loans") to Lender on behalf of Broker's clients ("Borrowers") for possible funding.
   B. It is not the intent of the parties for Broker to submit FHA/HUD insured loans pursuant to this agreement.
   C. The parties now desire to enter this Agreement to set forth the terms of their relationship.

   NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the mutual covenants and agreements hereinafter set forth, the
parties hereto agree as follows:

   1. General Broker Responsibility Fees. Broker will at Broker's sole expense perform those services referenced in Section 3.9
below in addition to providing such information as Lender may reasonably request to assist Banker in marketing the loans to secondary
market investors in consideration for fees as set forth payable by the Borrower. Such fees may be paid in whole or part by Borrower
and/or by Lender, provided, that no fees shall be payable to Broker which have not been fully disclosed to, and approved by, both
Lender and Borrower. The contents of all Loan package and other information submitted to Lender shall become the property of Lender
upon Loan closing, and all information contained therein may be subject to Lender's independent verification. No fee shall be owed to
Broker on account of any proposed Loan which is not funded and closed, and Lender shall have no obligation under this Agreement to
Broker if a Loan fails to close and fund, for whatever reason except that Lender will fund any loans submitted to Lender by Broker, which
conform within its reasonable discretion with its lending criteria, policies and guidelines then in effect ("Lending Criteria").

    2. Loan Approval. Lender shall make available to Broker product descriptions of the various wholesale lending programs being
offered by Lender from time to time. Such descriptions shall not be binding upon Lender. Loan approval shall be within Lender's Lending
Criteria. Broker shall not represent to any party that Lender has approved or will approve any Loan until Broker is so informed by Lender
in writing. All Loans shall close in Lender's name. Appraisers and their qualifications must be approved in advance by Lender. However,
such approval does not ensure that Lender will not review or rewrite any appraisal submitted to it.

   3. Broker's Warranties. Broker represents, warrants and covenants to Lender, as of (i) the time any Loan package is submitted to
Lender, and (ii) as of the time the Loan is funded and closed through the life of the Loan, that:

          3.1 Authority and Capacity. Broker is a duly organized and validly existing entity in good standing under applicable laws of the
state of California or other states in which it is engaged in the business of brokering or originating mortgage loans, and in such state that it
has the requisite authority and capacity to enter into this Agreement and this Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered
by Broker and constitutes a valid and binding obligation of Broker, enforceable in accordance with its terms. Broker's compliance with the
terms and conditions of this Agreement will not violate any provisions of its charter documents, any instrument relating to the conduct of its
business, or any other agreement, law or regulation to which it may be a party or under which it may be governed.

          3.2 No Untrue Statements. None of the statements or information contained in any document submitted with or included as part
of an application package, or in any document reviewed in connection with Lender's underwriting decision, contains or will contain any
misleading, false or erroneous statements, or omit facts necessary to make such statements or information accurate and understandable
in every respect.

         3.3 Absence of Claims. There is not pending or threatened any suit, action, arbitration, or legal, administrative, or other
proceeding or investigation (including an allegation of fraud by another lender) against Broker or its current or former owners, agents, or
employees which could have an adverse effect on the Broker's business, assets, financial condition, or reputation, or upon any Loan
submitted for funding by Lender.

         3.4 Control of Document. No Borrower shall have had in its direct or indirect possession or control any credit, income, or
deposit verification document submitted to Lender with respect to any Loan.

         3.5 Duly Licensed. Broker pssesses all necessary approvals, licenses, permits, and authority to execute and deliver this
Agreement and to engage in the activities contemplated by this Agreement, and Broker is in full compliance in all respects, and in good
standing, with all regulatory and supervisory agencies having jurisdiction over Broker.
          3.6 Ownership. Broker has no direct or indirect ownership interest in any property acting as security for the Loan.

          3.7 Compliance with Laws. Broker and each other person involved in the Loan transaction has complied and will comply with all
applicable state and federal laws and regulations, with respect to the Loans and the activities of Broker. The Broker and each other
person involved in the Loan transaction is in full compliance in all respects with all rules and regulations of all real estate and mortgage
lending regulatory and supervisory agencies as are applicable to Broker and such person(s). Broker covenants to maintain all licenses
and approvals on a current basis and to keep itself in good standing with such agencies. Broker further covenants to notify Lender
immediately upon the suspension, revocation, expiration or other termination of any licenses or approvals, or the taking of any action by
any such agency against Broker or such person(s) which could adversely affect the Broker's licenses and approvals. Broker will provide
any necessary affiliated business arrangements disclosure to Borrower required by the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act.

        3.8 Fees. Any fees (and the amount of such fees) imposed by Broker upon Borrower have been determined by negotiations
between Borrower and Broker. The total fees to be received by Broker have been seperately itemized and fully disclosed to Borrower
and Lender.

          3.9 Services to Borrower. At all times during the term of this Agreement, with respect to each Borrower whose application has
been submitted to Lender, Broker has observed and shall observe and fully discharge the duties owed by mortgage brokers to their clients
under applicable law. In addition to having assisted Borrower in the completion of his or her loan application, Broker has fully and
satisfactorily performed at least five (5) of the services set forth in Exhibit "A" to this Agreement. All services were performed and in
accordance with accepted and customary standards in the mortgage lending industry generally, and Broker is not aware of any dispute or
claim by any borrower that all such services were not fully and satisfactorily performed.

          3.10 High Cost Mortgages. With respect to any Loan that is subject to the provisions of Section 226.31 amd Section 226.32 of
Regulation Z implementing the Federal Truth-in-Lending Act, prior to the date of Broker's submission of Borrower's completed Loan
application package to Lender, Broker has delivered a complete and accurate notice which satisfies all requirements of Sections 226.31
and 226.32 of Regulation Z. Broker has reviewed and analyzed Borrower's credit, income, debts and financial condition, discussed the
results of its review and analysis with the Borrower and, based upon such review, analysis and discussion; Broker has a reasonable
basis to believe that Borrower has the ability to repay the Loan in accordance with its terms. The Borrower has not signed a letter
indicating, or otherwise notified Broker, that Borrower is unable to repay the Loan in accordance with its terms.

   4. Status of Broker. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as the Broker being deemed a joint venturer, partner,
representative, employee or agent of Lender. Broker shall not hold itself out as such, nor shall it use Lender's name in any advertising.
Broker's decision to submit application packages to Lender has been made in consultation with Borrower.

        Doing the Right Thing is the core value of Capstone. Any act of discrimination violates Capstone's policy and its corporate
philosophy of doing business. Our stand on nondiscrimination is absolute; there is zero tolerance for any discriminatory act or
behavior. Treating everyone fairly, and making decisions based solely on creditworthiness is Doing the Right Thing, plain and simple.
It is our policy and our practice to comply fully with the letter and spirit of fair lending and all other laws regulating our industry.
        We expect all brokers to fully understand fair lending practices and to deal fairly and equally with all loan applicants. We insist
that all negotiations be in good faith and without bias. We require that the letter and the spirit of fair lending practices, the following
Federal laws, and all statutes governing lending and equal rights be complied within each jurisdiction that the broker conducts

                   LAW                                                                    SUMMARY
                                             Prohibits discrimination in lending based on prohibited factors (race, color, religion, national
                                             origin, handicap, familial status, gender, and age). Also prohibits practices such as
        Fair Housing Act (FHA)               redlining, making excessively low appraisals, use of subjective or non-reviewable criteria,
                                             creating and exploiting a racially exclusive image, expressing intent to discriminate, and
                                             discriminating against women.
                                             Prohibits discouraging applications and limits the manner in which lenders can inquire about
                                             marital status, spouses, former spouses, alimony and child support. Also establishes
Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA)          requirements for lenders such as providing copies of appraisals, providing appropriate
                                             disclosures and preserving records from the application transaction.
                                             Regulates the activities of reporting agencies and the users of credit information and protects
                                             indivuduals from invasion of privacy and the dissemination of false or inaccurate information.
  Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
                                             Requires disclosures when adverse action is taken.
                                             Requires lenders to collect certain information about the loans they make so the government
   Home Mortgage Disclosure Act              can track applications and ensure lenders are taking and approving applications equally for
              (HMDA)                         all groups of people.

                                             Requires the disclosure of information about the lender, amount financed, and finance
                                             charge, payments, security and interest rate. Also establishes that borrowers have a right to
     Truth in Lending Act (TILA)             rescind most loans secured by their primary residence within three business days of loan
                                             Requires lenders to provide advance disclosure information on loan settlement procedures
                                             and costs. Also regulates the ways in which referrals between companies can be made and
