Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Yancey Events for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with Yancey Events have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. Yancey Events listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Scott Yancey, creator of Yancey Events and a hit television show, has informed Ripoff Report that his philosophy is that the viewers of their show are their greatest asset. As a successful real estate investor, television star, and businessman, Scott Yancey feels it is critical to listen to his clients and respond properly. By always putting his customers first, Scott Yancey hopes to maintain Yancey Events as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come.

Another top executive of the company told us that Yancey's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that real estate investing can be fun and exiting. Yancey Events' mission statement says it all: "Our goal is to provide our clients with the best real estate education in the industry.” One of the other things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads: “Yancey Events (and Scott Yancey) have an amazing set of programs designed for real estate enthusiasts. You will not be disappointed. They are serious about meeting commitments, and deliver on all their promises.”

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Jon Millar during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Yancey Events.

Yancey Events provides education, tools, and resources for real estate investing. Their target market consists of anyone who is looking to financially better their lives.

They are an education company that offers coaching and seminars. People who are involved with their company are typically new to real estate investing, some are just seeking more education, and some are already successful real estate investors.

Their company acquires leads for potential clients through direct mail, internet marketing, and outbound calls. Anyone who shows interest is presented with the opportunity to purchase lists that are approved DNC and TCPA regulations.

When presenting to individual consumers, Yancey Events follows a specific sales process. First, there is a seminar which consists of a 2-3 hour presentation on different topics. The price of their services is explained upfront. Then, there are two sales breaks for questions. Lastly, they follow up on “warm leads,” which are people that are interested but may not have the money, or people who are undecided.

During the onsite interview Jon Millar was asked about some of the complaints their company receives: “Most of our complaints come because of the free gift. However, we resolves every complaint, none are left unresolved. We honor the three day cool off period. Most of the time, even if it’s after that time period, we will still give their money back.”

Mr. Millar was then asked to describe a specific situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received, he explained, “A person was unsatisfied with a particular coach. The owner personally received an email and she was set up with another coach. We also gave her another 3-day refresher course for free. The customer was satisfied.

Yancey Events – Customer Care

Since complaints were made on Ripoff Report, Yancey Events have made some changes to ensure that customers are receiving the best experience possible. They maintain that they no longer give the gifts at the end of the day. If someone wants them early, they will be provided with one. They also make sure any negativity is resolved immediately.

In a leadership role within their company, Mr. Millar advises his employees to do whatever it takes to make the client happy. They have weekly calls with their 11 teams to drive that motto. They also hold biannual meetings to retrain employees on these ideals. Their training is centered on providing the best customer service possible. Their expectation is to have hard working people with integrity.

When asked what their company has done to remedy the concerns from complaints made on Ripoff Report, Mr. Millar stated, “We now have audio and video monitoring with a scripted sales pitch. At each purchased three day seminar we go over expectations and outline what we will cover. We make sure the people will understand what they’ve bought and what their expectations are. If they have any concerns, we stop immediately and address their questions. We provide a survey at the end of the seminar and if we discover that the customers have been misled in any way, the seller is fined or fired.”

Yancey Events is honored to be a part of Ripoff Report’s Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Their goal is to have zero complaints and they believe this is a step in the right direction.

One instructor stated "I have seen Scott Yancey take personal interest in the success of each of his students. Plus, with Scott, what you see on television is what you get. He truly has that much excitement for real estate investing. His ideas are fresh and are working, otherwise he would not be unfolding them on national television each week.”

Yancey Events takes employee satisfaction seriously as well. Employee feedback and surveys reveal comments such as this: “Yancey Events provides a very positive environment to work. Opportunities for suggestions and improvements are encouraged. Scott is truly concerned about our contribution to the company and providing growth opportunities for us.

Yancey Events Scott Yancey and Yancey Events... Las Vegas Nevada

I attended a Scott Yancey event in Jacksonville.  I was informed by phone, email and television that Scott Yancey would be there.  Instead he was not there and he does not attend these events.  It was a bait and switch or at the very least false advertising.  He turned a fan into someone who feels violated and hopes that punitive damages come from this.  Please do not attend these events believing that he will be there.  He is just using his star power to pump these events that will try to sell you over priced workshops up to $10,000.  It such a scam it makes me want to puke!

AUTHOR: Andrew Saltman - ()

Ryan Oliver who was the speaker instead of Scott Yancey in their bait and switch scam and false advertising pouted in defense when I confronted him about the scheme he said that I had a crush on Scott Yancey, but wouldn't he be the one with the crush on him since he works for him?  I'm straight Ryan, just was looking for some foreclosure flipping tips from someone who actually has star power unlike you.  I have gone from fan to pissed off investor.  I'm so diappointed in the whole situation, this has been the first time I have been scammed by an event.  I went to a stock Robert Kiyosaki event but at least I knew he was not going to be there.  Ryan Oliver did not offend me but he seems to be a pawn in the stars shadow.
