About Scott Yancey
Scott Yancey is one of the stars of the A&E television show, Flipping Vegas, and the proprietor of his own personal real estate investment system, which he promotes through seminars and books.
In his TV show, Scott Yancy, his wife Aimee, and a whole team of contractors purchase houses in the Las Vegas area and then “flip them,” which is a term used for affordable renovations made to a piece of property that will allow you to quickly resell it for a profit.
On his website, ScottYanceySeminar.com, his published biography says that Yancey’s grandfather was a successful real estate investor, who taught him the basics of profitable real estate investment from a young age.
Now Yancey is providing his expertise and knowledge to a wide audience, not only through his TV show, but also his book Go Time, and his nationwide series of seminars, which are described as “live real estate income events” where people can “learn secrets from the pros.”
These seminars are intended to show the attendees how to get started as an investor, how to pick the right area of real estate, how to create profit regardless of the state of the housing market, how to generate monthly cash flow, and more.
The website is very clear, however, that these seminars and informational sessions are meant to give people access to real estate education and investment training. Customers who attend this seminar looking for a ready made real estate business opportunity will likely have complaints, as this will not be the focus of the material shared.
TV stars of shows which focus on real estate flipping often take their information out to the public in this very way, just like the Armando Montelongo study course or the Fortune Builders educational website, which is run by some of the cast members of the show “Flip This House.”

ATTENDED PREVIEW AND 3 DAY WORKSHOP
FIRST OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN ABOUT INVESTING IN YOUR EDUCATION: REALLY???? Yes $2000 was the first check i cut other than college and yes i did attend the entire 3 day course and was BLOWN away by how much i didn't know about real estate strategies. I have a friend who has been in Real estate as an agent and tried to persuade me not to invest the additional money saying i can teach you ....WOW i just finished the Buying Summit and Boots on the Ground and it was incredible. I have done 3 deals and my instructor at the 3 day was absolutely dead on in life you get what you ASK for !! i am on my way to financial freedom. After i got my tuition returned after my first deal i also encouraged my friend to attend which he did and now we are doing biz together .Thanks GONZO for motivating me to take the next step!!
I attended the Yancey event in Scottsdale. they had some fast talking young guy Trent Ellingford doing a hard sell on all occupants. He did get a lot of people signing up
My parents came with and advised me to sign up since I am unemployed. and I felt the pressure.
THANK GOD I DID NOT SIGN UP AND LOSE $2000.00 DOLLARS THIS IS A DEFINITE SCAM AND DO NOT FALL FOR IT
GET A REGULAR JOB, GO TO THE LIBRARY AND READ FLIP HOMES AND GET SOME REAL ESTATE BOOKS, THEY COME FREE FROM THE LIBRARY
I JUST HOPE YOU LISTEN AND SAVE YOURSELF $2000.00
It was ok, there was a lot of information, just enough to keep you wondering, sounds good, BUT,for those who are struggling and cant afford to get started it is like a slap in the face, haha im rich your not, believe me if i could afford to even pay for the three day class, 95% chance would be a yes, would love to have a comfortable life but cant come up with any cash to do this. Poor people, like me, who want a better life and would do anything to have it, cant afford it. WISH I HAD A WAY TO BORROW MONEY TO GET STARTED BUT JUST DONT HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY...
I joined the Seminar
I went to the three day seminar for Scott Yancey's real estate course here in Grand Junction Colorado, I think the 1997 I spent was well worth it ! Further I did join for the Diamond education and yes it is very expensive but in real life it cost money to make money. All you people bashing a one day event because the truth of the matter is; you never get anything in life for free. Sounds like you have the same welfare mentality of people who don't want to have to work because they are entitled to free money from the government and the taxpayers who work.... Really? You truly think a top quality education with the actual training should not cost you anything? You think that they do not have the right to charge what ever price they want to share with you their knowledge and expertise? Wow Society has gotten so used to all the BS and hype that when a real opportunity hits them in the face they make false accusations without any facts just the BS from others. Humm maybe that's why we have so many people on welfare and our government which means you and I are over 13 trillion in debt. Oh Well I guess it is your choice to make all the false claims. I would rather hear from someone that completed all the education rather then a bunch of posers spouting off at the mouth! Yes I will come back and post after my training and let you all know the real deal and if it turns out to be a scam as you all say then I will eat my words and lick my wounds from a bad investment decision but in return when I make an updated post by Jan 21 2015 after all my training and I am successful will you recant your false accusations? Oh and by the way my name is Bill and no I am not a employe of the Yanceys or any other Real Estate group but a person who wants real facts not just a bunch of scared society hype!
Sad but true...SCAM
My husband and I just attended the free seminar in Westminster, CO last night and left after the first break and the $2000 3-day retreat pitch. As others here have stated, there were many 'red flags', especially not being able to ask any questions. And the whole cold room thing; I had no ides that was part of the ploy...I was freezing!! We decided to research all of it first, then if the reviews were good, we would perhaps invest in the retreat the next time around (there's always a 'next time').
After reading all the negative reviews, and the fact there is no lending from the Yancey Company at 1% interest, only the pressure to spend more and more of our money, I can only say WHEW! And I want to sincerely thank you all for your information...you saved us from loosing our hard earned money and coming away feeling disappointed, not to mention embarrassed. This is truly sad that people will do this to others with out any degree of conscience of guilt.
I feel so bad for all those we watched sign up for the retreat and hand over their money...my only hope is that they too came home, did their research and have since requested a refund.
Again, thank you all for sharing your experience and/or knowledge of this scam...you helped us 'dodge a bullet'!
