Scott Yancey Reviews

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!

Reviewed By PAUL on August 23, 2013, Toronto, Ontario

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!!!

It's sad to know that people just want to prey on others for what they define as success. Imagine, 2k in 20,000 places. It;s a shame

Bad Business - Scott Yancy Events - BEWARE!

Reviewed By J.W. on July 26, 2013, North Carolina

"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!

In paragraph # 3, I was trying to say that no one has helped me make deal, not from PMI or the Mentor Hotline. Somehow that paragraph got rearranged, probably because I had to cut out a lot of what I wanted to say in order for it to be submitted. I'm sorry I didn't catch that editing error before I submitted my post.

I also went to one of these events in Elizabeth town ky, We were suppose to get a free digital camera, I got a voucher for one and was unable to redeem it, If someone can not even keep their word about a cheap camera, I would not trust them for anything, They were also rude to me in a off handed way, the people were like snake oil salesmen. The biggest regret is ...I took a friend and she fell for the pitch, She is not talking to me now, so I guess she is not rich yet!.

I did receive the camera and, I'm sure to know one's surprise, it's a piece of junk, light as a feather and has a tiny screen.

Thank you for the information that this is Professional Marketing International ...looked them up in the Better Business Bureau and found they are AKA Wasatch Summit, LLC. They are not BBB accredited and they have an alert issued on them. There are 319 complaints closed with BBB in last 3 years...36 closed in last 12 months.

I went to the seminar and notice there self proclaimed motivational speaker lied when telling her success story, She bought on those tears too. (Don't Know how she sleeps @night) They talked fast which was my second red flag. Upon breaking it was like a church gathering. When the offering plate goes around. I tried to get the business name of these real estate enterprise. And was giving a toll free number. Way to go though. I know 5 ppl signed up up for there $2000 3 day seminar here in Lansing. Nov 22,23 24. Smdh. I hate fraudulent ppl.

Predators are not only on National Geographic Wild! I attended the 3 hour fast talking, cold room, no questions asked , free lunch! Two grand to $3500.00 dollars are asked of you. Attend a 3 day workshop and $20,000 to $60,000 is asked of you. Very sad that people get rich scamming other people. I bet when we all leave they all sit together and laugh about how many people they got that day! :(

Thanks, JW. I purchased the 3 day seminar also. After I day in which over half of the time was spent on motivational thinking, (telling us we have to change our mindsets from being a consumer to being an investor), we were scheduled to come in a little early to discuss our personal path to real-estate success. After about 10 minutes in this session with our coach we were told we needed a mentor program that cost $20 to $40k. I told the coach that I wasn't paying anymore money till I saw a path to this success, knew what mentor I was getting and their qualifications and understood the techniques I would be using to generate these deals.
At this point the coach went into a hard-sell attitude that I was a CONSUMER and would never make it in real-estate because I wasn't thinking as an investor. At one point, when asked if his definition of an investor was spending 20 to 40 thousand dollars on his course, I was told that he couldn't help me and I could get my money back now. I told him that I came here to learn techniques to buy and sell real-estate and would like to finish the course in order to do this. To my disbelief, I was told that I wouldn't learn this information in the 3 day course and the ONLY way forward in real-estate was to buy one of his courses.
At this point we had had enough red flags waved in our faces and opted for our money back and left. Possibly this works for people but demanding 20 to 40 thousand of my money with no visible path to my goal or contract written down isn't happening with me. Hopefully I'll get my money back with no problem.

I agree. Thanks for share your experience. I was on the 3 day seminar, and I almost got involved on the "big training", the only reason was that I did not have that money that day, I was so sad that I was thinking to do again to be able to continue with the program. Thank you to your alert.

I was phoned the other day with a 'special' offer for a few select people.
I thought on it for a day and also read these reviews. That night when the rep called back I asked again what exactly he was offering me... when I asked him to send the information to me in an email his response was "why should I have to".
He said after they received the money I would receive Scotts formal letter detailing the class and 'special' offer.
Yet when I said no to the funds transfer without seeing this first or an email outlining what exactly I was being offered I received the same response again "why should I have to do that".
This went back and forth for some time until he hung up on me.
Guess they won't be calling back....
