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 4 hour class where they offered upfront a $2000 3 day.seminar next weekend, making it seem that is all you needed to do to have access to all there knowledge,even money for quick flips-there money at only 2%.There was no mention that the 3 day seminar was to sell you a $ 20-40000 package as others have mentioned here -what??? I had asked a guest couple who have been in program for 6 months if they would lend money to buy and hold,she said yes but refused to tell me at what interest rate ,only that it wasn't as high as hard lenders .Another worker said he wan't sure but it could be 10-12%.Not sure if you could refinance ,or was there balloon payment or penalty for early buyout.They had no contracts to review. The tax lien program finished with the guy saying ,"Oh by the way most of tax liens that you but from us are at or passed redemption period.He put a positive spin on it as if you would get quick return or payoff. .A smart lady in crowd told me they probably but the liens,make their money and just before it goes to foreclosure,sell it to you. Room was very cold .Does that make it easier for pressure sale?
a sucker born every day!
Yes, I'm one of those suckers. Sucked in to throw away $2K and I got nothing but promises of success. I went to the seminar expecting to see Scott and his lovely wife, but instead found a group of slick "used car " salesmen who talked me into throwing away my money.
You are always searching for a way to make a few extra dollars to have around when you need them and to maybe have a little extra loot around when you retire. I was so taken by the athenticity and professional look of the invitation to attend the seminar that I didn't even bother checking the reviews.
Someone told me to read the reviews before I check in on the 3 day seminar. Thank God I just dropped the minimum. I won't bother attending the workshop, avoid embarrassing myself by not spending more money, and I'll try to get my refund on the first home I sell on my own. Good luck to that!!!
Bad Business - Scott Yancy Events - BEWARE!
"People believe what they want to believe until they choose to believe otherwise." I can't remember who said that, but it is true. I bought the Diamond Package and wish I would have used my better judgment and listened to my inner voice when all the "red flags" were popping up at the $2,000 3-day workshop, which in reality was a skillful marketing campaign designed to inspire and motivate you to become a success by buying the "Scott Yancy System" for real estate investing, as if there is no other way to become successful in real estate.
I could go on and tell you about the horrible experiences I have had with the so-called "Mentor Hotline" and the difference between what they promised and what I received, but you'll believe what you want to believe anyway. I bought it hook, line, and sinker just as the couple from WI I saw in an earlier post. Eventually, there comes a point when you cannot lie to yourself anymore, you can no longer ignore or justify away the inconsistencies and failure to deliver what was promised.
PMI (Professional Marketing International - are the ones who are really running the show, the Gurus are just their spokespeople, kind of like Michael Jordan and Nike) has helped me make a deal or given me any useful information at all. It's definitely not from my lack of trying and dedication. I was finally told that I would have to travel outside of my area in order to do a deal. Basically, my area isn't a good area to use Scott's System (read PMI's System).
The best experience I've had was the Boots On the Ground Training. It was really informative and I did learn a lot, but not $40,000.00 worth and it certainly would take a lot more of those training sessions, more than they offer to earn what the claim to be the equivalent of a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Real Estate Investing. Boots on the Ground was genuinely authentic and real.
The other stuff we Diamond Package "Suckers," as someone else put it, got is definitely a lot of "fluff" or "filler" without much sustenance. They basically string you along promising you'll find out more at a future date. If you ask any questions they cannot answer, they tell you to be patient and trust in the "System." Frustrated I went out and purchased one of Dean Grazosi's books and learned more in one day from his book than I have from all the materials, tools and training I got with the Diamond Package.
(As a side note, if you get "invited" to join their inner circle, they will provide you with "scripts" to help you get around the "tough questions" people may ask you. This means everyone you talk to has been trained to answer questions like a politician and they want you to do the same and they'll give you the scripts to do it!)
If you buy one of their advanced packages, you will learn something and I'm sure it has a value, just not a $20,000.00 or $40,000.00 or $60,000.00 value. I also think they should be more upfront with who's program you are actually buying. You are buying PMI's Real Estate Investing Program, not Scott Yancy's. Scott and Aimee, and others are only their spokespeople (which is probably why the program costs so much, you are paying for their faces)!
I could say more about the lack of a structured curriculum, syllabus, or any professional or academic accreditation, etc . . . the things I should have checked into but did not.
I cannot recommend this program to anyone. "Buyer Beware!"
Good luck with all your real estate endeavors and I wish you success!
scott and amie needs to be thrown into prison they are evil wicked creatures of hell ripping off poor old disabled people like myself
What a waste of money
I paid $2000 to listen to advertisement!
