Hi,

I'm not sure the context of this "there it is." Is it exchangeable with "there you are" because she was looking for the writer?

My career as a personal assistant hit rock bottom one summer morning when Valencia greeted me with a flyer she'd taken from the window of an exotic-bird shop located on the corner. Beneath a fuzzy Xeroxed photo of what appeared to be a chicken was a description of a missing African grey parrot that had flown out of the store when a customer opened the door. It was noted that the bird answered to the name of Cheeky and that a $750 reward had been offered for its return.

"So there it is," Valencia said. "We will find this Cheeky bird, split the money, and then we will be rich!"

Thank you,

No. Substitute, "So [there / that] is the solution (to all our money problems)" to understand the meaning of "So there it is".

"So there you have it" is another possibility, where it = the solution.

You can also substitute "So there you are" with that meaning, but not with the meaning, "You are there. I've been looking for you".
