Here's what attendees to Ozzie's seminars have said:
Hi Ozzie, hope all is well. I am a long time member and through your savvy advice now own 35 condos on Vancouver Island.
Keep up the good work, enjoy reading your newsletters.
I attended your conference of Sat - Oct-14 and I really, really enjoyed every moment of it. It was wonderfully useful information and frankly, wonderfully entertaining as well. Thank you.
I would like to thank you for an awesome real estate investment conference last Saturday. My first time to the conference and i learned so much. A few weeks ago I attended a peak performance evening and learned about real estate as a passive income and so of course I was thrilled with all the information your conference contained. As a result I am planning to take your course in the new year. I would also like to mention that I am a certififed real estate stager (Canadian staging professionals) and really appreciated of your comments in praise of staging property. We stagers need all the exposure we can get.
Just a quick Thank you from me and my husband for your facts by email and all the information we have obtained over the last several months. We also went to your Land Rush seminar in the late Spring and this gave us the confidence needed to step out of the box and make some "well thought out moves" in real-estate. We are just closing a deal that is making me, (the housewife) $90,000.00 before taxes in just 3 1/2 months!
So a big thanks and continued success for you and your company.
I have to say “THANKS!” for last night’s little negotiation session. It was really fun. I appreciate all of these offerings you create for your REAG members. I’m glad to be a part of it all!
The Western Investor attended Land Rush 2004 and had this to say: Hot buys in BC real estate ( So you've got $200,000 to buy a real estate investment somewhere in British Columbia this year...) Read more...

Hi Ozzie, hope all is well with you and that you had fun cruising the islands and Howe Sound.
Your seminars on the Alaskan Cruise were awesome! For the last 10 years at least (since I was 14 or 15), I've been listening to tapes (Jim Rohn etc.) reading lots of books and have had a few small businesses. I attended the business program here in Kelowna, but through all that I've never found anything that I was truly interested in. Real Estate (as an investment tool, and as a career) was always in the back of my mind but I never followed up on it.
Since your seminars and the brief conversation we had over breakfast (on the cruise) I'm pretty sure that I've found my calling. For the past month I've immersed myself in your books, MLS Listings, other real estate books & web sites, and have found it very interesting and quite exciting. A couple of weeks ago I subscribed to your Insider Newsletter, Facts by Fax and your Hotline.
Evidently, drawing up the action plan is of utmost importance.
I've got a rough copy drawn up and it is already working wonders. My credit card debt will be paid off by October 1st, and on that same day I'll be making a call to the Real Estate Council to get started on my "Pre-Licensing Course".
Thank-You very much for the opportunity to attend your seminars, and also the opportunity to join you on July's cruise. In case you're not exactly sure who I am, I've enclosed a picture from the cruise (I'm the one nearest Jeff, my buddy Chris is next to you). See you at "Real Estate Outlook 2004".
Jody L. Miller
P.S. You mentioned a January cruise, any idea as to where that may be??"
On behalf of the CAFP (BC) Chapter, thank you for your tremendous presentation on Thursday, September 19th, 2002.
John Weston, a lawyer friend who runs with me said, "Ozzie always underpromises and over preforms", which I fully endorse.
Due to the success of our New Venue and your presence, we had more participants than expected. So please accept my apologies for the late start as I know we could have 15 minutes of questions, at least.
I will examine your services as to see how they can fit with our Planning Services."
Ian P, Mellor, CFP
Program Director, CAFP (BC)
"Dear Mr. Jurock,
Thank-you for a wonderful event on Saturday. The calibre of presentations was great, and provided a helpful overview for investing. My gratitude as well for featuring my property that is for sale in last week's email correspondence."
Best regards, Gabrielle Lacelle
Thank you for making our First Meeting under the new format such an overwhelming success.
I had many comments, such as Doug MacDonald, who said "I didn't fall asleep once" and Jim Cripps who said "I believe I came away with 3 ideas which I can use to help my clients".
Anyhow, I will be able to move up to the larger room, as a result of the commitments from Planners for the year ahead. This was my goal.
I hope you had fun and there is some positive results for you.
I look forward to a copy of your Power Point Slides.
Great Presentation, Ozzie. Keep up the Great Work.

The Vancouver Board of Trade, March 24, 2000
"Now that the dust has cleared, I want to thank you for being such a superb MC during Connection 2000. As with any new event, the 'unknown factor' comes into play and truly only a true professional can handle the quirks and surprises that arise.
Well, you are a professional and handled the entire day with good humour and grace - thank you.
Overall the event was a success, increasing the awareness of SME Vancouver and by creating a platform for an annual event.
Again thank you Ozzie, and if I can be of any assistance, please call." - Tracey Cochrane, Sales & Marketing Executives Vancouver, March 20, 2000

"At last, we've completed a review of delegate evaluations of last month's Semi-Annual Meeting at the Hotel Vancouver. I'm pleased to confirm what we already knew -- that your presentation was very highly rated.
In fact, almost 80 percent of those who attended ranked it "good" and "excellent." These results are outstanding because our delegates tend to be tougher in evaluating theme presentations than when rating routine business sessions. Clearly, their response demonstrates the quality of your message and style of delivery. In this case, your address received higher marks than any comparable presentation." - Gayle Stevenson, Manager, Creative Services, Credit Union Central, December 9, 1996

As usual we heard so many comments from our staff, clients and friends that they really enjoyed every word. Thank you very much." - David R.L. Rolfe, ROLFE, BENSON CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS
