In case you are not aware of me or what I do, my name is Nicole Ocean. As a national speaker, certified real estate instructor, BPO trainer and coach, I have been teaching real estate professionals all over the United States for the last 4 years. I have been blessed to be able to help thousands of BPO, REO agents and appraisers build and automate their businesses to levels previously never achieved. As a speaker, I am accustomed to speaking in both small settings from one hour virtual training sessions to day long classes of hundreds of people within a group setting.
As of March 2009, I became a licensed and Certified Real Estate Instructor through the state of Washington. I am officially the “First Certified Real Estate Instructor in the BPO Industry.”
I specialize in teaching and training real estate professionals on the topic of Broker Price Opinions. I am extremely proud to announce that I am the founder of the first accredited real estate school that focuses specifically on Broker Price Opinions; it's called BPO University. Within this school we offer classes specifically on the topic of Broker Price Opinions and on using BPO Automation and Auto-Accept software. Our accredited classes are first offered only to real estate professionals in the state of Washington and then I’ll take them national. People taking courses from our school get continuing education clock hours that they can apply to their license renewal.
I am very proud to share with you the fact that I work within family-owned and operated real estate & mortgage companies in Bellingham, Washington. My Dad is my broker and my Mom is in the business with us and is also a Realtor within our real estate company. I have been a real estate salesperson since January of 2006 for Pacific Realty Group, Inc.
I am the only agent in our real estate office that does BPO's and thus I specialize in Broker Price Opinions and have done them full-time for two years before I got deep into training, coaching, mentoring and consulting. I still do BPO's from time to time. In the last 5 years I have worked for and offered my BPO and REO services to over 35 companies. In the last few years, I have transitioned over from strictly doing BPO work to doing training, speaking, coaching and consulting on a full-time basis and still do real estate sales part-time.
I have worked extremely hard these past few years to become one of the "Leading Source for Broker Price Opinion Education and Instruction."
I pride myself on always trying to make a difference in our industry by making information and products about Broker Price Opinions, BPO Automation and Auto-Accept software available to everyone.
I have a real passion for the business and in staying educated and thus am working on sharing my first hand experience and inside knowledge of this industry by helping to educate others and making information about BPO's and automation software more easily accessible.
