and scott and amie yancey, the stars of a&e's hit tv show "flipping vegas," have identified more than 700 properties in your local area that are primed to be flipped profits. and they're hosting free lunch and dinner events to provide you access to the training, the support, and the money you need to start profiting from them. that's right. because you'll be working directly with scott and amie's team, their strategic funding partners have given preapproval for you to use $750,000 of their money to do your deals so you don't have to use any of your own cash or credit. and the number of deals new students are doing is amazing. >> in less than four months' time, i've already been able to do 13 deals. >> unbelievable. now, did you have real-estate experience before this? >> no, i didn't. i didn't have any, other than buying my own house. have this straight. after attending the free event, you've already done 15 deals in 3 1/2 months?
2:57 am
>> yes, i have, and i'm very surprised at myself. >> what have you been able to accomplish so far, mike? >> we've done seven deals in about two months, and it's been great. >> so what would you say to viewers? why should they come on down and attend one of these free events? >> it will change your life. just do it. >> hello, everyone. i'm rachelle mccray. it's my pleasure now to introduce you all to the stars of a&e's number-one real-estate show, "flipping vegas," scott and amie yancey. scott and amie, thank you so much for taking a break from your show to be with us today. >> hey, we're happy to be here. >> we're really excited to be here. >> like millions of other viewers, i love your show, "flipping vegas," on the a&e network. and i'm assuming a big network like a&e wouldn't run so many episodes of your show unless the market was red hot, right? >> exactly. >> so, why is right now such an exciting time to profit from real estate? >> well, when the real-estate market bottomed out, of course there were great opportunities
2:58 am
fraction of the previous value, but it was challenging to flip them because banks really weren't lending to a majority of the buyers, so even if you had the cash, got an incredible deal on a property, there were really few buyers that could actually get financing that you could sell it to. >> but now prices are steadily on the rise, and banks are lending more, and people are feet. >> yeah, definitely. the market is becoming very active again. we're definitely experiencing what is called a recovery. and this has created a whole new wave of real-estate opportunities all over the country. >> we just flipped this house behind us, another one on the same street, and one right around the corner. we are profiting from more deals now than ever before. that's how crazy it is. >> yeah, and we're not talking about just the fix-and-flip type of deals that you see us do on our show. we're talking about quick flips where you're in and out of these deals so fast that you never even lift a hammer or touch a paintbrush. >> wow. that sounds exciting. but many of our viewers may not know the first thing about real estate, so how can they start profiting from these deals?
2:59 am
>> well, they just need to come to one of our free events. most of the people that attend our events have never done a real-estate deal in their life, but it's okay. we teach from the ground up how to get started and profit on their very first deal. >> we've also done this long enough to know that people who are watching may be thinking, "well, that's great. they'll teach me how to do it, but i don't have the money or the credit to be a real-estate investor." >> well, guess what -- neither did i when i got started. i used no cash of my own, no credit of my own, and i made over $2.3 million my first year out on my own as a full-time real-estate investor. >> that's incredible. >> it is incredible. and what's really cool, when i started using scott's strategies, i made $186,000 on my first deal. i went on to make $200,000 on my second deal, all without using any of our own cash or credit. >> now, of course, not every student that comes to our events makes millions their first year. most students just start off with one or two smaller deals while keeping their full-time job, and they build momentum from there. >> so tell us, then, how can the
3:00 am
average person watching right now start doing this if they have no investment capital or credit? >> well, the same way we got our start and still do many of our deals today -- by using our money partners. >> we call them our strategic-funding partners. we find the deals, they put up the money, and we flip them. >> hold on. you're telling me that all of our viewers that come to one of your free events will have the opportunity to work with your funding partners? >> absolutely. >> all of you watching, when you come to one of our free events, our team will show you how to find the best deals in your area, how to do the deals, and you'll learn how to get access to $750,000 of preapproved funding so you can actually start doing deals right now. >> scott and amie and their money partners have already been doing this all over the u.s. with people just like you. in fact, at one of their recent events in another city, students from all over the country gathered to share their success stories, and we sent our reporter, angela scott, there to get a firsthand look at their
3:01 am
extraordinary results. >> hey, everyone! i'm angela scott. in addition to my background in news and reporting, i'm also a licensed real-estate agent. and i have to tell you, in all my years in real estate, i have never seen anything quite as exciting as what's going on right now in these events. by providing people with the knowledge and the money to do deals, scott and amie and their money partners have opened up the real-estate world everyone. people with no real-estate experience who normally would have never had the chance or the money to get into real estate are doing it. >> jeanie, what was the most exciting thing that you discovered when you got to the free event? >> i think the most exciting thing is that there's so many different ways to make money in real estate, and many of them, you don't have to use your own money, and a lot of them, you don't have to do any labor, like in rehabs. >> now, i understand that you're fairly new at this, but i also understand that you have some deals already under your belt? >> yes, i've completed five
3:02 am
deals in the first 2 1/2 months. >> that is impressive. warner and ann, you're fairly new to the program, but i understand that you've already had some great accomplishments. can you tell me about that? >> we were able to complete five deals in nine weeks. >> five deals in nine weeks -- you heard that right. sherry and paul, what motivated you to attend the free event? >> well, we were looking for a way to generate income in our retirement years, and we thought real-estate investing would be an excellent opportunity to do that. >> so how many deals have you done? >> well, we actually did nine deals in nine weeks. >> unbelievable. nine weeks? did you ever think you could have this success in just such a short amount of time? >> things have happened a lot faster than i guess we first envisioned, but we're very pleased about that. >> coming up, i have so many more success stories i want to share with you. but first, here's how to reserve a table for you and a guest to attend one of scott and amie's free lunch or dinner events coming to your area.

3:06 am
>> but you need to realize -- at our free event, we provide you access to our training and our money partners' funding, which eliminates those barriers. >> listen to how quickly our new students are getting started and how many deals they are doing. >> so, guido and kat, did you have any real-estate investing experience before you actually attended one of these free events? >> no, none whatsoever. that was a completely new world to us. >> that was a new world. so what have you been able to accomplish so far? >> we have been able to close on two deals within a short two-month time period. >> so, dale and kim, i understand that you had a pretty exciting goal in mind when you came to one of the free events. >> sure did. i was looking to get out of my present job, looking for a change. >> so, looking for a change, how many deals have you done? >> we've done four deals so far. >> four deals so far. tammy, i understand that you're fairly new to this, but you've already had a lot of success. >> yes, we've done eight deals in a little over two months. >> unbelievable. so what would you say has been
3:07 am
your favorite part about this opportunity? >> i think, how simple it was, and that i work full-time and i don't have a lot of spare time at all to do this, and i tried it on my own with not much success and spent hours and hours and hours. and it's been so simple using this program. >> so, what would you say to those viewers at home that are maybe working 40, 50 hours a week, and they say, "i literally don't have an extra hour in my day"? >> check out this program. i don't have an extra hour in my day, and i've done eight deals so far and looking forward to more. >> scott and amie, your free events, they sound incredible. you both have made amazi money doing real-estate deals all around the country, and now, of course, you have the number-one real-estate show on the a&e network, "flipping vegas," and that follows you around as you continue to make money on even more deals. you are very successful, and you're obviously very busy. so i have to ask you -- what inspired you to start hosting these free events? >> well, it was actually a couple things.
3:08 am
of e-mails from our viewers, e-mails from people who see our tv show and want us to teach them how to profit from real estate where they live. >> and we would never have enough hours in a day to help everyone individually, so we started kicking around the idea of doing live events so we could help more people at one time. >> and at the same time, we also knew our funding partners were really happy working with us and were looking to fund even more deals. >> so we came up with the perfect solution. we'd host live events to provide students the training and support they need... >> our funding partners would provide preapproved funding for their deals. >> and everyone wins. >> yes. >> well, by the number of success stories you're creating and the number of deals your students are doing right out of the gates, i'd say your solution is clearly working. this sounds like a win-win situation for everyone. but this is such a unique opportunity, something that i've never seen before. so, do you find that some people might be a little skeptical at first? >> yeah, they can be at first, but it's just because of what they've experienced in the past
3:09 am
in fact, at some of our events, we ask everyone, "how many of you have ever seen other real-estate programs that promise that you could make money using no cash or credit of your own?" >> just about everybody in the room raises their hand, but few, if any of them, have actually done a deal. >> yeah, and it's because those other real-estate programs just teach the concepts of how to profit in real estate with none of your own cash or credit. but what we do differently is we give you support and the access to the cash that you actually need to go out there and start doing deals. >> you may be thinking this sounds too good to be true, but here's the facts. our money partners have already funded more than $205 million worth of deals for new students. >> our free events are providing people who never thought they could get involved with real estate with direct access to the training and the money they need to do an amazing amount of deals very quickly. >> so, paul and leona, i understand that you didn't have a lot of money to invest before you came to the free event.
3:10 am
>> no, we didn't. >> but that didn't stop you. >> no, it didn't. there was money partners that were available for us to be able to make deals. >> and how long did it take to do your first deal? >> five weeks. >> unbelievable. have you done? >> we've done six. >> six deals -- not having money to invest up front. i mean, that is unbelievable to me. >> so, terry, what was going on in your life before you attended the free event? >> before i went to the free work. i'd lost my job. i think it was two or three months prior to that. and i was looking for something else to do to replace my job. >> so you replaced the job, and what have you been able to accomplish in that time? >> since then, i've, uh... made 13 different deals, all in less than four months' time. >> 13 deals -- 4 months' time -- unbelievable. now, did you have real-estate experience before this? >> no, i didn't. i didn't have any, other than buying my own house. >> well, i have to say, this sounds like an incredible
3:11 am
opportunity. you're making me want to come to one of your free events and learn how to start profiting from real estate myself. >> and you should. you'd love it. and here's what's really exciting. flipping is just the beginning of what you learn, because we teach all of our students to use some of their profits from flipping to buy and hold rental properties that create monthly cash flow. >> because unlike flips that just pay you once, cash-flow properties can supply you with that long-term monthly income we all want. >> so, bettie, what brought you to the free event? >> well, i was looking for an opportunity to have passive income so that i could retire in a few years. >> and what have you been able to accomplish thus far? >> so far, i've purchased some rental homes and have income on a monthly basis, a positive income. it's been great. >> okay, i have to ask. how many deals have you done? >> i've purchased three homes. >> three homes. and how long did that take?
3:12 am
>> about 2, 2 1/2 months from the time i first came to an event. >> 2 1/2 months. i mean, 75 days to have three deals done already. that is incredible. >> it's wonderful. and to see the checks come in every month is exciting. >> so, fred, what were you looking to achieve when you attended the free event? >> you know, i was looking for independence -- financial independence. and i come from the corporate world, so i do a lot of traveling overseas, working 7:00 to 7:00. this is my opportunity to really get some independence of my time and financial. >> so let's talk financial. how successful have you been? >> within three months, i purchased three properties that are turning positive cash flow. >> i know there are people sitting right there at home saying, "i am stuck in this corporate world. i want independence just like fred." what would you tell them about the free event? >> i would strongly encourage them to go. it's a great learning experience. real estate is really the way to go. >> you heard it right here. real estate is the way to go. financial freedom and independence. >> announcer: get ready in your local area for an opportunity
