Testimonials


Stephen Bernardo, Broker at S + J Property Management Corp. in Bellmore, NY  

BPO Automation Group Hi my name is Stephen Bernardo, Broker / Owner of S + J Property Management Corp. I was the 1st agent in New York to do a BPO. 400,000+ BPO's and 20 years later, I have the pleasure of using an AutoFill system created by Nicole Ocean. The program has cut the time of filling out BPO's from 25 minutes to 8 minutes. Her product is the BEST OUT THERE TODAY as I have seen it all over 20 years. Nicole's AutoFill eliminates typos and make the turn around time for BPO products immediate which the clients appreciates. All the agents who benefit from using her product will become the Premier Agents in this industry. Clients want to work with agents that are credible and turn around time are key. Thanks again for helping me enjoy life now as your program has given me time to enjoy life + family and enjoy a great income."


Gabriel Gandelman, Real Estate Agent at Kalga Enterprises, Inc. in Los Angeles, California  

BPO Coaching "As someone new with BPO's, I'd really like to thank you for the way you direct me on how to stay on the right track and clarify those so important and at times confusing issues while preparing these reports. My colleague Wendy was so right on the money when she so highly recommended you as a BPO authority and guidance. Thanks again Nicole!"


John Peak, Century 21 Premier Real Estate in Columbus, GA  

BPO Automation Group "My BPO business would not exist without the BPO Automation Group. I am able to do a BPO in thirty minutes that would take an hour without this awesome software. I run my own BPO business. I have no employees. I do between twenty and sixty BPO's a week. I take all my own photos. The BPO Automation Group makes this possible. This software runs on all of the major BPO companies that I do business with and Nicole and her staff are constantly updating forms staying on top of any changes in the industry. They are very responsive to any and all issues. If you want to do BPO's you must have this software."


Cindy Spoo, Florida Luxury Realty in New Port Richey, FL  

BPO Automation Group "BPO automation has "automated" my business by allowing me to take on more companies through their extensive database and their "readiness" to help with almost all reports that are known to each company for me to be efficient and not have to overwork my data entry since it is automated for me for the most part. I left a review back in January 2016 regarding BPO Automation services and I can now testify to a greater degree that this service is absolutely worth having in your arsenal. I perform about 25-50 BPO's per week and could never do that volume on my own!!! Thank you Nicole and crew...you rock!!!"


Mr. Robert Ceballos, Home Team Realty, in Houston, TX  

BPO Automation Group "I have been using BPOA for a few years now and couldn't be happier with the programs available from this great company. I use the AutoFill software for my business. I am able to be much more efficient and provide a much better price opinion to the companies I do work for. The AutoFill program allows me to focus on the important part of the BPO which is actually figuring out the market value of an order while eliminating most of the cut and paste part of filling out a form. BPOA has just launched an Enhanced version of AutoFill which is even more detailed and personalized than before. I look forward to using the new version." Customer service is great at BPOA. The Tech staff stays on top of any changes that might occur with the various companies they support. Nicole and the gang are constantly improving and modifying the products they offer. From the owners on down, this is a great company to do business with." Update from Robert on 03/24/2016 "I've been using BPO Automation for several years now with great results. I would not be able to do near as much work without this great service. I do some beta testing for Nicole and the gang, which I enjoy helping with. BPOA stays current with industry changes and acts to upgrade constantly. The program runs smoothly and if there is ever an issue the response from Tech Support is prompt and effective. I recommend the service highly and plan to use BPO automation as long as I am in the valuation business."


Steve Chewens, Chewens & Associates Real Estate in Harriman, NY  

BPO Automation Group "In June 2015, a colleague of mine had asked me if I was having trouble with my BPO software. I replied to him I don't know what you are talking about. So after a short conversation I did some research and came across BPO Automation. What a great piece of software! I have increased the amount of BPO's I was doing each month with this software. It is very easy to use and they cover a lot of companies with each of their different forms. I can't say enough about them, their customer service is outstanding and very knowledgeable. They spend time with you and train you on how to use software; if something comes up they are there for you one on one until the problem is solved. I only had a couple of things that have come up but it was updates on my computer that disrupted the software. If you do any kind of BPO work I would highly recommend this software. It will save you a lot of time."


Christopher Gailey, Real Estate eBroker, Inc. in Martinez, CA  

BPO Automation Group "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.”


Mr. Terrance Blakemore, Blakemore Properties, in Modesto, CA  

BPO Automation Group "I have worked for years with BPO Automation with the Auto Accept program with great success. I no longer need Auto Accept, but recently got set up with AutoFill and I love it. It is the cheapest possible "employee" you can find, always on time, always in a good mood. Seriously, love the program and have ha a great experience with the BPO Automation Group.”


Mr. John Sliman, USA Business Brokers, Inc. in Winder, GA  

BPO Automation Group "This company will help you make money and they cannot help you enough to be successful. Nicole and her staff are just great with great products. 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."


Daniel Waterman, CEO of NFSTI - REO Training & Nationwide Conferences  

BPO 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!)"


Mr. Dana Yarbrough, Value Realty in Cordova, TN  

BPO Automation Group "I have been working with Nicole Ocean at BPO Automation Group for several years now and have enjoyed great success in using the automation software in my BPO business. Nicole stays on top of changes in the industry and has done an excellent job of adapting the BPO AutoFill software as needed to stay current and relevant. In addition, the company Tech Support system is easy-to-use and staff responds in a timely manner to provide resolution to software issues and answer questions. The software is easy-to-use and the Group website (Member's site) is stable and secure and has rarely been offline in the past several years. I look forward to a great working relationship for the next several years as the software has become a vital part of my business model. I highly recommend the BPO Automation Group and the products and services they provide for the industry."


Tim Ventura, Vice President / Marketing Director for Tim and Julie Harris Real Estate Coaching  

BPO Coaching "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."


Francine Williams, CDPE, GRI, Associate Broker for Global Advantage Realty at Hyattsville, Maryland  

BPO University "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."


Dana Allen Hunzelman, Real Estate Consultant for Century 21 North Shore at Derry, New Hampshire  

BPO University "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."


Melissa Kim Realtor for Executive Realty in Bloomington, Minnesota  

BPO University "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. She was easy to understand, thorough and well-organized. As an attorney and real estate agent, I certainly feel Nicole Ocean is more than qualified."


Joseph Tanos, Realtor for Burton Real Estate in Concord, CA  

BPO University "Greetings! I am very thankful to have met you through one of your previous students, who is now a successful BPO & REO agent here in the East Bay Area. Taking your complete 2 week personalized course was the best thing I needed to jump-start a new career in BPO & REO. I immediately felt comfortable that learning your system was a perfect formula to succeed because you have unselfishly shared the secrets to getting started in this field. Every completion of our conference call has increased my knowledge & skill in developing the right mind set. Your simplified & systematic approach helped focus my attention to the important details for organizing, preparing & developing the tools required. I am now more confident than ever after being armed with your training to aggressively seek the business as BPO vendor & REO preferred agent for the institutions concerned especially with your continued support. Once again thank you for the abilities you possess as an effective educator. Many more need to benefit from your educational skills & knowledge, & rest assured that I am more than happy to be a reference to any of your future students. I am proud to have you as my mentor."


Scott Nielsen, Broker for Global Atlantic Group in Port Charlotte, FL  

BPO University "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.”
