bpo and reo agents: What Does Jim Carrey Being Booed Off Stage At His First Stand-Up Act and BPO Work Have In Common? - 03/29/11 12:07 AM
Here is how the story about Jim Carrey goes and even though it is hard for me to imagine this, I remember hearing that when Jim was just 14 years old, he had his first stand-up performance at a comedy club called 'Yuk-Yuks' in Toronto, Canada and subsequently got booed off of the stage. For many people this negative experience would have left such a bitter taste in their mouth that they likely wouldn't have been brave enough to try their hand at performing again, but not Jim. A few years later, he came back to the same comedy club much (2 comments)
bpo and reo agents: Automating Your BPO/REO Business Doesn't Have To Be Intimidating - 03/06/11 03:14 AM
Just like anything that is worthwhile in life, you are going to have to work 'smarter, not harder' to achieve great results. Imagine if you didn't have to work at something and it came easily, well then you are likely to not see the real value or appreciate it as much because it came to you without much thought or effort. After being around the BPO Automation software industry for the last 2+ years, I've picked up on there still being lots of people in the business that are intimidated by using BPO Automation software to streamline their BPO/REO business. At first glance, I can sympathize (1 comments)
"BPO Automation Group returned the last week of January, 2011 from the REOCON Summit in Fort Worth, Texas. Most of the agenda items at the Summit focused on the REO and Short-Sale industries, asset managers, etc. This similar theme appears to be the big drawing card for those attending the various trade shows across the nation. I had some very interesting conversations with some of those in attendance, together with other conversations I've had recently that have focused on a splinter group of real (7 comments)

bpo and reo agents: Are You Using NABPOP's BPO Standards and Guidelines Yet? - 01/24/11 02:16 PM
Broker Price Opinions have been around for over 20+ years. Even after all this time, there isn't one adopted set of standards or guidelines in the valuation industry which classifies exact requirements from those offering BPO's. Unlike the appraisal business, that uses the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the BPO business is still evolving in this area. Thankfully, an organization stepped up the plate to help bat in defense of the BPO business having similar standards and guidelines.
The BSB BPO Standards Board and the National Association of Broker Price Opinion Professionals (NABPOP) saw a void in the (2 comments)

bpo and reo agents: Nicole's Number One Way on 'How to Get REO's Listings from Your BPO Work.' - 05/30/10 07:41 PM
One of the best ways to turn your BPO's into REO's is number one work for the right companies that will align you with those opportunities. I look at this like I am going fishing. I've spent plenty of time with a detailed map in hand. I spend hours planning, researching and then strategizing which are the absolute very best 'fishing' holes before deciding to sink my line in and see if I get a bite. To be successful in this business you've got to do the same and then be patient enough to wait for your bobber to sink just below the surface of (0 comments)

November 18, 2009 As the Sales Manager of the BPO Automation Group I have been in contact with hundreds of agents across the nation, who are vitally concerned about their ability to get BPO orders successfully. There are now a multitude of agents who are making a partial and/or meaningful livelihood from completing BPO orders. The guaranteed payday for those in the BPO industry, especially in today's economic marketplace, is extremely attractive for many. With BPO market saturation occurring in many areas of the nation, it is becoming more and more difficult to successfully get orders. To blame (4 comments)
