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.”

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!
I signed up but, will cancel
I've read all of the reviews and found them very useful. My gut instinct going into this was that it was going to be exactly as most of you said. But, after listening to the presentation, I found it to be reassuring and I signed up.
The main presenter was very good and he reminded me of the guys selling Time Shares. I signed up with the understanding that I have three days to cancel. To add to that, they offered to return my money after I purchased the first property and made money. Since I'm already going to purchase a property I thought that I had nothing to lose.
The main presenter left right after his presentation for a flight to parts unknown so, no one could answer the questions. I thought that at least I would get all of the valuable information that they would provide during the three day seminar.
Now after reading the reviews, I have decided that it's not worth my time. I just downloaded a free Flip book and will read that instead.
Thank you all for your very honest and educated opinions.
Scott Yancey scam
Everything everyone else said in their reviews is true. I didn't buy in but the seminar lasted over 3 1/2 hours and I paid for parking which they didn't reimburse. When I went to leave the people were rude and there was no free camera. Just a mail in card for an MP3 player. Also one lady purchased something that was supposed to give you $1500 discount off first purchase of a tax lien. However it wasn't $1500 it was 15 $100 discounts which means she would have had to buy 15 liens to get the $1500 discount. Fraud......all the way!
