I just finished Dean's newest book Millionaire Success Habits that he was giving away for free on facebook and let me just say wow! That was such a killer book. Dean made it really easy to understand how little changes make huge differences. And the better life challenge website is sick! Thanks dean! Thanks for caring so much with all the messages you do Dean. I love your facebook live videos as well!

Spending approx 25k for this company's training was the biggest mistake of my life. They totally misrepresented the benefits offered. For example, they promised that I would have an experienced real estate professional at my disposal for the first three deals I did... that "person" didn't exist. Instead, they had a phone bank of people who knew less than I did about RE investing.

The software that they described as "the best in the nation" provided outdated and useless info. The worst complaint involves the tax lien company that they highly recommended in the initial presentation... Ready Lien. For example, I bought 6 tax liens with supposed staggered lien maturities. Not one of the maturities detailed on the invoice was accurate. Guardian Law, the firm that Dean suggests we have "monitor" the liens after purchase, is totally incompetent. For example, one of the six liens purchased involved a property whose owner filed chapter 13 bankruptcy. Guardian Law failed to file a claim in the bankruptcy, so I am stuck waiting 5 years for the bankruptcy to end before I can start a foreclosure process.

I tried to work with Ready Lien and Guardian to refund my original cost of the lien because they inaccurately described the lien (wrong maturity) plus Guardian failed to file a claim. Neither would take responsibility for their incompetence. I spent 3k on atty fees, but the cost to take them to court was prohibitive. I've left several messages trying to find the appropriate person from Dean's company to report the incompetence by two companies that Dean highly recommends.

I was introduced to one lady at the buying summit in Vegas who said she would contact the appropriate people. All she did was report it to Regan **, the atty at Guardian Law. HE was one of the people who wouldn't take responsibility for the errors to begin with. I've had nothing but BAD experiences with Dean's company as well as the two other companies he suggested. Interesting that Ready Lien and Guardian Law and SKW (prior owner of the liens that were purchased) all have the same address.

I attended the Buying Summit back in May of 2013. Before I went I opened a self-directed IRA and moved $100,000 to purchase property. I was excited because it was advertised that this would be a great way to start your portfolio because the properties selected were in decent communities with very little violence and they were fully rehabbed. I purchased 2 properties, one in Missouri and the other in St. Paul, MN. I was told to pay half the purchase price for both properties. The property in MN had a purchase price of $116,677.00 and MO $58,988. I was told both properties were fully rented and because I was buying property from the Summit due diligence was done.

First the MN property which was a duplex had only one tenant. The other tenant was evicted. BuyPD did handle the eviction and paid for 3 months of rent. I found out through my property manager that the house was in a bad area. There were shooting every night and the property was infested with roaches and mice. I was told that the one tenant complained before I purchased it but nothing was done. I kept getting violations because the back of my house was a dumping ground. Because of the type of neighborhood, I could not get decent tenants. I spent roughly $15,000 of fixing the house over and over again until I was able to sell it for a loss.

MO property -- I was going to sell it before the two years was up since I did not have the $29,500 to pay off the mortgage balance due to the problems of the MN property. I was going to try to sell the house in March of 2015 through the property management company but she indicated the house was only worth $20,000. When I contacted BuyPD about it they said they would sell the property for me. Well they went through the process of getting the papers together for the sale and then everything stopped. I was shuffled from one person to another and then they ignored me altogether. Phone call were never returned. I had apply for a two year extension of the mortgage to prevent a foreclosure. This has been the worse experience of my life. Someone want to buy the property from me for $35,000. That is far from the $58,988 that I was told the property was worth. I wished I had never bought either property because I would still have my $100,000.

I started in Real Estate at a young age and thought that I was ahead of the game. That was until I met Dean Graziosi.

Dean is the most genuine real estate/life/business coach I've met. His Weekly Wisdom is very beneficial. He has built a successful empire and is now paying it forward. I've been in real estate and business for over 12 years and I'm so glad I found him. His content and events help me gain more insight into the business and give me motivation with my business and life. Thanks Dean!!! You're a groovy dude.

Dean is always upbeat and positive. I enjoy listening to his weekly wisdoms. When I have been down and unmotivated I can jump on a Dean video and pick myself up to start doing the work again. In my experience, he is genuine in wanting people to succeed. He has an energy that is contagious and uplifting. Thanks Dean!

When I first thought about getting into investing in real estate I always thought it was a pipe dream and that I would never be able to do it because I was not a millionaire but Dean's training showed me that I could not be more wrong! The concepts he teaches are clear, common sense and simple to pick up and run with. This has opened a new door for me so I can pursue a better financial future through building my real estate investing business and having the financial freedom I have always wanted.

With that being said, I am going to make SURE someone reaches out to you ASAP with a resolution for your concerns.

I can promise you that we do not, nor will we pay people for positive reviews on this site. We truly do care about our students, and while it seems as though our relationship to you somehow slipped through the cracks, I can assure you that we will come to a quick and timely resolution.

Keep an eye out for a call and email from our team this week. We are going to have an answer for you soon Brian.

Thank you for reaching out, thank you for voicing your concerns, and you will hear from us soon!

Several years ago we spent a sizeable amount of money for this so-called "training", we never received any thing of the sort. Had a few online classes and then nothing and when we called for assistance and direction we got some weak answer. We never got anything as to what is advertised. Total bull and don't waste your money. Also I do believe that all of the positive reviews are just paid to say all is rainbows and unicorns.

I've been in construction for 10+ years and have always had the itch for real estate but never thought I was capable of doing it. I always thought it was for people with deep pockets or you had specific qualifications but what I learned from Dean anyone can do it. He lays it out so simple, all you have to do is follow what he teaches and take action. Thank you Dean for doing what you do and helping me be the best me!

The training and support provided by Dean and his team is amazing! I am so impressed with the support and assistance the staff have provided. When attending training like this, you always wonder if the training will live up to all the expectations that you have. His workshop was much more than I ever anticipated. I thank the staff, trainers, and everyone else that put this event on.

What I love most about Dean Graziosi's training is that it's not just about Real Estate training. Dean gives his clients and his students his all. Dean knows that even if he gives you all the tips, tricks and tools to real estate investing the greatest gift he can GIVE you is to encourage you to go deeper within for yourself, find the limiting beliefs inside yourself and overcome any of the challenges that life has thrown your way. Dean grew up with so many struggles. He had so many things to overcome in his childhood but he never gave up and when he discovered this about himself he wanted to share.

Dean found that success was about personal growth, personal empowerment and personal sacrifices, and he made it his mission to pass on this wisdom. When you begin the journey with Dean Graziosi be prepared to go deeper than just Real Estate. Becoming a successful Real Estate Investor is an amazing BONUS. If you really apply yourself, the concepts that he teaches will push you to really help you grow inside. When you discover this you can do anything. Thank you Dean!!

Hats off to Dean and his team. I have been with multiple other companies in the same space and not gotten the same service/training. It's not often you come across a company that stands by what they teach and also does what they teach. This isn't your typical "do as I say and not as I do" company. Thank you Dean.

Dean Graziosi has provided some amazing training. One of the most influential parts of my personal investing career, was something I learned from Dean's program. He teaches a concept called 7 levels deep about looking within yourself to find your real core reason for wanting to invest in real estate. This has helped me as I move forward investing in real estate to find out my real motivation for doing it and to be successful.

I have coached students for many Guru's including Tony Robbins, Ron Legrand and Robert Allen. While they have all their successful students those students who came from Dean seem to be the most passionate and the most successful. Many seem to have a personal relationship with Dean. He is the only guru I know that seems to take such a personal interest in his students.

I just wanted to say that I first heard of you about a decade ago, and had been watching you build your business. I had the opportunity to use your program about 5 yrs. ago. Even though I am a seasoned investor I learned some new techniques to increase my investing business. I think you have a very comprehensive and easy to learn step by step approach that can help anyone interested in real estate investing. I have referred you to many people who ask me what is a good place to get education about investing. Thank you for helping me improve my business.
