"Nobody has more knowledge and expertise when it comes to Broker Price Opinions than Nicole Ocean. She has a broad, comprehensive view of the industry, coupled with a deep technical grasp & solid regulatory knowledge of the industry that is simply unparalleled. I'm very well connected in the real estate industry, and to the best of my knowledge she is the #1 expert on BPO's in the United States."
- Tim Ventura, Vice President / Marketing Director for Tim and Julie Harris Real Estate Coaching
"Nicole has been nothing but phenomenal to know. Aside from her ability to guide professionals through very complex issues like BPO's and automation with macros, her character as a person is a perfect 10.
Anyone who ever gets a chance to meet Nicole soon realizes that this is a person who is passionate about what she does and that she also happens to be one of the most giving people you'll ever meet. To have that wrapped up in one and then be able to gain expertise from her training is priceless (which is ironic because her pricing is always so affordable!)"
- Daniel Waterman, CEO of NFSTI - REO Training & Nationwide Conferences
"This letter is to provide a recommendation to you for the consideration of approving Nicole Ocean as a state certified Real Estate Instructor as well as an online Internet Trainer.
I have been very active in all aspects of real estate for more than 25 years and am a licensed Broker in both Florida as well as Missouri, and have taken many various online eCourses over that period of time. I have known Nicole for over a year and have also purchased and used several of her automated eBooks and eCourses concerning Real Estate BPO Practices and Automating a Real Estate BPO Office. Not only did I find the courses to be exceptionally well-organized and presented, but she was always readily available for telephone consultations.
Even though I am an experienced professional, I learned numerous new facts from her Informational eBook series and as a Managing Broker of an active Agency, I know that both new Licensees as well as current Sales Agents will be able to easily follow and understand any type of courses that she may prepare in the future.
I sincerely hope that you will consider approving her for state licensing, and know that she will be a great asset to our profession and industry as a whole.”

"The webinar presentation and information was more than I expected......I have been in the real estate industry for 20 years and have completed BPO's for several banks for the last 15 years. I truly enjoyed your webinar titled "Doubled Your BPO Income." The breaks in between and information, stats, Q&A, was very thoughtful and shows you work within our industry. I think it is so refreshing to have one of our own present the BPO/REO material from Realtors prospective. I am looking forward to signing up to use your software."

"There is an old saying; most of us hear it a lot. It goes like this- “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true”. With all the get rich buzz and scams around today it is hard not to be skeptical.
I am here to tell about one amazing exception to this rule. Some time ago I half-heartedly spent a small sum on money (a couple hundred dollars I guess) for Nicole Ocean’s introductory information about performing BPO’s for steady income. She sent me some great information. I began emailing and writing all the contacts she provided.
And then, an amazing thing happened. I started getting orders for BPO’s, first a few, then more than I could handle! Then, a more amazing thing happened… a steady stream of checks in the mail on a regular basis!! I now have a solid income that comes to me through email notification. Make no mistake; it is hard work. But, I work from home, at my own pace.
Stop worrying about where your next RE deal will come from!
PS: My next steps are automating the process with BPO Automation Group, and then to hire 1 or 2 assistants for data input.
Thank you Nicole, after 20 plus years as a corporate sr. manager, you have given me the freedom I always wanted."

"I started as an assistant to a real estate agent (my mother) at the end of the year in 2006. I received my real estate license in February of 2007. I was not sure at this point if I wanted to continue in Real Estate, the market was tough. I started seeing that the REO agents were getting many listing from the banks. I asked about these REO listings & how I could receive them too. I asked again and again but no one seemed to have any answers for me. Then there was someone that one agent that said if I did some BPO's then this might increase my chances to get REO listing.
So then I “Goggled” BPO’s and there was Nicole Ocean. I purchased her e-book about BPOs and receive the list from her. I was excited. I started signing up & before I could get finished with the entire list I received my first BPO. I was then frantic & so I called the number on Nicole’s website & I was happy to hear there was someone that could help me. She walked me through my first BPO. She was great; she was patient with me, as I was very new at this and very nervous. For about six months I did nothing but BPO’s as Nicole continued to help me whenever I called.
Doing these BPO’s helped me as I was making zero money in real estate. Then in January of 2008 I received my first REO listing. Since then I have closed 34 REOs transactions this year. Wow thank you Nicole.
I just recently took an on-line class that Nicole offered and I was very impressed how good she was at teaching and how she went at a good pace. I was not too sure if I wanted to learn more about automating my BPOs but after her class I was excited and now I want to learn more. I believe that Nicole is a natural teacher and she defiantly has the heart to help others. I could not say enough about how she has helped me through these tough times in this real estate market. Because of her helpful ways I happy to say that so far this is my best year ever." Click here to view the actual letter.

"I have had the opportunity to be trained by Nicole Ocean for Broker Price Opinions. In addition to being intelligent, diligent, professional and articulate, Nicole has an innate kindness and integrity. I found Nicole's teaching style to be exceptional.

- Melissa & Glenn Kim, Realtors® for Executive Realty in Bloomington, Minnesota
"I have been a client of Nicole and her BPO Automation Group since 2008. Prior to her innovation with the automation system it was painful to complete 20 BPO's a week due to the amount of manual inputing. Now with her automation I am able to complete 40-50 orders a week and still have a life. Thank you for the great service the past 7 years Nicole.”
- Christopher Gailey, Real Estate eBroker, Inc. in Martinez, California

I had a question about my software and the staff was on it within an hour or less. Great job thanks Plus, they are always coming up with new and improved programs to assist you with your business."
- John Sliman, USA Business Brokers, Inc. in Winder, Georgia
"I have over 40+ years and IT and an MS in Computer Science. Since retiring from General Motors in 2004, I’ve been a Realtor covering Lapeer county and parts of Macomb, Oakland, Sanilac and St. Clair. I’ve generated most of my income from BPO production, since listing & selling in SE Michigan is very limited in today’s market. Being a tech guy I enjoy doing BPO's as a side business to my retirement. I submit my BPO under my Broker’s company name since only Brokers can be paid for CMA's in MI.
I’m a person who retired from a 40-year IT career and became a Realtor as a new career. I serve several counties in south east Michigan.
I’ve bought several e-books from Nicole Ocean. I’ve attend a webinar she held on automating BPO Orders. Numerous times I called or email about BPO issues. She is always very responsive and helpful. She is a good educator."
- Arvid Martin, Realtor®, ePRO in Imlay City, Michigan
"Just want to thank you for your assistance and instruction in setting up the BPO portion of my business, and the basic how to's from A-Z.
What's more, your accessibility to questions, prompt attention to students, and hands on is highly professional and most appreciated.
I love knowing you are there should a question arise that I am unable to answer. The Best to you in '09."
- Judy B. Realtor® in Scottsdale, Arizona
"This is the 2nd BPO Package I purchased and I paid less money and received far more usable content. Nicole really goes over things in detail and the section on "Beating the Competition," is worth its weight in gold! By simply implementing the information provided in this section alone, I was able to significantly increase my chances of accepting assignments. In fact, the first day I set up my cell phone to accept emails, I was able to accept my first assignment simply because I was notified immediately of the availability. And, I wasn't even sitting in front of my computer at the time. Awesome!
I highly recommend buying this program! If you're looking for a way to earn some extra cash this is the way to go. You can earn enough money to do whatever you need to do, I mean everything from offsetting all the fees/dues that come with the cost of doing business, to putting spending cash in your pocket EVERY MONTH, to implementing a new marketing strategy for your business EVERY MONTH, it truly will help you do whatever you need to do!
If you're relative new to the business, having this information at your fingertips will help you through those challenging and frustrating times and more importantly, Keep You From Leaving The Business. Kudos to Nicole. Again many thanks.
- Debra C. Realtor® in Wantage, New Jersey
"I signed up with several BPO companies on Sunday night figuring I'd have plenty of time to get up to speed, I found three orders in my email Monday morning, so I needed to hit the ground running. I selected Nicole's training program because it looked like the most straight-forward, no-nonsense and comprehensive tool I could find, and it was. With Nicole's invaluable training materials, and Nicole herself answering questions (by phone and email), giving me personal experience tips and reassuring support, I got funtional quickly. Now I'm working on implmenting all the other "how-to's" Nicole provides to make sure I organize and run my business the right way too. Thanks Nicole!"
