About Flip with Nick

If you’re interested in earning money through real estate investing, Nick Vertucci’s Flip with Nick seminar claims to help you learn how to become the next real estate millionaire and to create financial security for you and your family. In fact, his Fortunes in Flipping quick start events are claimed to help “show you the ropes and get you on the path to success.”

But what can you really expect from a Flip with Nick event, and is it ultimately worth your time? Nick Vertucci reached out to us directly regarding his training programs, and here’s what we learned.

How Flip with Nick Works

Flip with Nick was created by Nick Vertucci, who claims that because of his failure to “invest in his future,” he lost nearly everything he had during the dot-com crash of 2000. However, Nick claims that after a friend invited him to a 3-day real estate training seminar, his life—and his financial situation—began turning around

Today, Nick Vertucci is a retired police officer turned real estate entrepreneur, mentor, and coach, host of “The Real Estate Flipping Hour” radio program, and creator of the Flip with Nick live introductory seminar, which claims to show you exactly what he’s done to make millions flipping real estate. In fact, regardless of your background, experience, or financial situation, Flip with Nick claims to give you a blueprint for success and to act as your mentor so you don’t have to go it alone.

In addition, the Flip with Nick system claims to help you “get in, get out, and get paid” in as little time as possible by discussing important factors such as locating the best properties and how to obtain no-money-down funding.

Flip with Nick Pricing & Refund Policy

Signing up for one of Flip with Nick’s live Quick Start events is completely free, although you’ll need to provide your name, address, and email, and choose an upcoming event date and location (see more about this in the Bottom Line section).

On the day of the event, the Flip with Nick website claims you’ll also receive Nick’s Fortunes in Flipping kit, which is claimed to be valued at $400.

Is Flip with Nick for You?

So, if you’re looking to get your feet wet in the world of house flipping but don’t know where to begin, does Flip with Nick represent a good option? Maybe, but keep the following in mind before signing up:

Testimonials, Case Studies, & Examples

First and foremost, the likelihood that you will achieve the same financial success as Nick Vertucci or any of the individual testimonials solely depends on how dedicated you will be in applying and utilizing the information you receive. Don't expect over-night success (just like anything in life). In fact, the Disclaimer on the Flip with Nick website specifically states, “Testimonials, case studies, and examples found at this website are exceptional results, do not reflect the typical purchaser's experience, don’t apply to the average person and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results…The described experiences are atypical. Your financial results are likely to differ from those described in the testimonials.”

In other words, will you become successful using the information learned in Flip with Nick? According to Nick Vertucci, this largely depends on how much effort you’re willing to put forth, and for how long, although he claims that if you’re willing to apply the training, you will see results. However, exactly what these results will look like will vary from individual to individual.

Does the Location Work for You?

Although the majority of Flip with Nick main events occur in Orange County, CA, there are free preview and workshop events held regularly throughout all 50 states.

This means that, when attending main events, you may need to factor travel expenses into your budget, especially if you’re located outside of the Southern California region.

Flip with Nick’s Reputation

Overall, there is very little online feedback from former or current Flip with Nick customers, although the Nick Vertucci companies have been in business since 2005, and Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy (e.g. Flip with Nick) Nick incorporated since January 2014.

The company holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau based on just 1 closed complaint (as of 3/30/15), which referenced difficulty obtaining a refund after missing classes. The organization is also Ripoff Report Verified, but does not have any complaints filed.

With this said, since writing our original review, more than 50 HighYa readers have provided feedback about Flip with Nick, and have given the program an average rating of 4.5 stars. Common compliments appear to reference the high-quality information learned, that this information can be immediately put to use, and the fact that Nick himself actually conducts the classes.

Is the Value Good?

As Nick passed along to us (and as we mentioned above), he believes that the information contained in any Flip with Nick program will provide you with the information you need to succeed—at least to some degree—as long as you’re willing to put in the time and effort to make it happen. And based on the numerous positive reviews posted here on HighYa, it appears that Flip with Nick has helped many others find success.

With this said, keep in mind that if you’re thinking about attending a free Flip with Nick seminar, you will be presented with the opportunity to purchase additional training. Nick informed us that attendees are under no obligation to purchase anything, and should the individuals be interested, they can proceed forward. Nick did stress to us that he is specifically against high-pressure sales tactics, which is good.

According to Nick, “you will either pay your tuition in class or in the field,” and it’s ultimately up to you decide which route you’ll take.

Bottom line: Can you Expect Flip With Nick to Work?

With most of the reviews here at HighYa praising Flip with Nick, it appears that if you do work the program and put in the effort, you can reap great benefits and satisfying results. It's important to note that this seminar is not intended to teach you how to become wealthy and successful over-night. As such, if certain people expect an easy-route in Nick Vertucci's workshop, they will soon learn that quick money is not always the case. However, because other real estate “gurus” often use their free events to pump up your emotions and to hard sell you on higher-priced programs, Nick claims this is a “black eye” on the industry, and is something he’s out to try and change.

When it comes down to it, unlike some of the other real estate programs we’ve reviewed, such as Scott Yancey and FortuneBuilders, Nick Vertucci appears to firmly stand behind his products and seminars, and states that—as long as you’re willing to put in the time and effort—he can help you become a successful real estate investor.

Ultimately, you’ll have to decide whether or not you’ll gain knowledge in the field through trial and error, or through paying (what some might consider) steep prices to learn what you need in one of Flip with Nick’s programs.

  • Great Experience

    I had a great experience going through the NV Real Estate Academy. The information received was laid out in such a way that I could see the process working. I remain positive as I have started to implement the steps to Nicks process. One thing that is important to me when taking a class is that when I leave, I have something to work with, a plan that I can put into action and not just a good feeling. Also all of the instructors operated with the same integrity as Nick. That's huge.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Knowledge of flipping and investing through Nick Vertucci's Academy

    First, my wife and I just want to say thank you Nick.

    We've started a new chapter in our life and we're truly appreciative of all the knowledge given to us from you, a real deal stand up guy.

    We're so excited to start our investing career in real estate. We learned a great deal of information on the bus tour and through your excellent hotline staff.

    We would have never opened this door if it hadn't been for you and your elite team of experts!

    We look forward to a successful investing career in real estate and look forward to seeing you again one day. Again, my wife and I want to thank you so much.

  • What an experience

    I recently attended a bus tour with Nick Vertucci and I have to say, it was amazing! I'm not one to ever post anything personal like this, but I just had to speak out for Nick and his team.

    They are professional, loyal, caring, and they will do everything they can to help you out! If they can bring this turtle out of her shell enough to post a comment it is something special, and I really mean that.

  • I spent over $55,000!

    I have spent over $55,000 on this education and I can say it has been WORTH EVERY PENNY!

    I have owned my own martial arts business since 2008 and understand the value of a good mentor. This is the real deal and legit! I would recommend this training to everyone who is analytical and has a hard time pulling triggers because of "analysis-paralysis"

    I will tell you they answer every question that you will have and tell you the questions to ask for the future. A+ in my book.

  • Top Notch Training & Organization

    I have been a Realtor for 30 years and have attended many seminars during my career, none have ever held my attention as did the Nick Vertucci training.

    Some things were a refresher for me with regard to Real Estate. The detail and organization of the material presented will be lasting, made possible by the written (thick) notebook prepared for us students to take home with us for reference.

    The field trip experience on the bus tour gave us tools to use that I found to be of great value. My only regret is I wish I had this training 30 years ago, worth every dime & time. The integrity of this company is impressive.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Hidden agenda.

    • Fort Collins, CO ,
    • Nov 22, 2016

    Everything sounds fantastic. However, if you listen closely, you'll realize that not everything adds up. They spent the vast majority of the seminar on how with their system you can find bank owned/repossessed homes far below market prices, use "other people's money" (OPM) to buy the home and perform repairs and then sell it at market value.

    He talks about how if you go to the training, you are guaranteed to have access to this OPM. The term "paper flip" is only briefly mentioned. That where it's misleading. That's where you need to ask questions and that's what they should be explaining. Thing is, a "paper flip" isn't nearly as sexy as buying a home with OPM and turning it for a huge profit. Yet from what I've gathered, that's what they want you to do after the $1695 class and that's what you will be learning at the 3-day $1695 classes.

    Basically you're doing the dirty footwork, finding homes in the "target" area they describe for someone else. That someone else will pay you a finders fee but they will be the ones making the huge profit, not you.

    There is also a hidden agenda for the $1695 you'll spend for the 3 day class learning how to do Nick's perfected "paper flip." They will be trying to up sell you in a $50,000 4 day bus tour.

    Now, if knowing that doesn't change your willingness to cough up $1695, how about this. The pitch at the free seminar was led by Michael Syme's, he is the name behind "Keys to Making Money with Online Auctions." Michael Syme is known by many as a scam artist.

    At Nick's event, Mike likes to tell a "story" about how he was living paycheck to paycheck then he and his wife had baby that was very premature and how he incurred great debt as a result. He never said how much but has told people at other seminars that it was in excess of $500k.

    Others have said that Michael said that he wasn't insured, he told us that the money he owed was his part after insurance is paid. Thing is, Michael Syme used to do the exact same thing as he is doing now, without the premature baby Hospital debt story.

    Michael Syme was putting on a free seminar that's only purpose is to get you excited enough to cough up cash for the actual information/training. The fee for his Auction training was $4000. The fee for training at the Nick Vertucci seminar was $1695.00 (price varies from what I've read) this is for 3 days teaching the Nick improved secrets and training.

    He'll tell you that the fee is not to make money, it's to weed out those who are serious from those who are not.

    In summary, a scam led by a scammer, but if you work hard, implement what's taught, you might make some money regardless.

    NV Real Estate Academy

    I completed the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy Bus Tour, in Irvine California, November 2016 and it was an amazing experience beyond my expectations. The class was a 4-day intensive course on various aspects of Real Estate Investing led by Nick Vertucci and his Team of experts. At the end of each day, all questions from the attendees were answered thoroughly and in detail so all could understand. Not only were the Team Leaders passionate about their experiences, you could tell and hear and talk with Nick each day to see for yourself his passion and commitment to give each of us an opportunity to grow and excel in this business. Beyond anything I expected, this was an educational investment worth the expense.

  • High Integrity

    Not a "Get Rich Quick" scheme by any means. Nick Vertucci and his staff laid out a very clear and concise training event that I believe has changed my life. He makes it very clear that you have to work your tail off in order to reap the benefits, which made this very real and genuine to me. I can tell that he truly wants to give back.

    I really feel like I've taken a huge step in becoming a professional real estate investor, and I give all thanks to Nick and his staff. Not only has he given me the knowledge and the motivation, but he's left me with a nationwide network of others who will be there to help guide me along throughout my journey.

    I tip my hat to Mr. Nick Vertucci. He is the real deal.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    My Experience

    The experience that I recently had at the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy Bus Tour in Irvine California this November has been nothing short of amazing. The initial investments to get there are all worth it. The class was a 4 day intensive course on various aspects of real estate investing. Everyone from top to bottom, and throughout the entire organization has been incredibly nice, not unlike any other real estate courses that claim to give you what Nick's course does. But being just nice does not give people the opportunity to succeed. This course actually has the substance to back up all of the claims. Not one person on Nick's team gave me the impression that they are here just to milk you for money. Nick and his team are truly a compassionate group of individuals that are highly motivated in making sure that everybody that comes through any of his courses can and will succeed. Obviously, nobody gives you anything for free. You have to work hard for it. That goes for everything in life. What Nick and his team do that sets them apart from virtually everyone else are the EDUCATION and the tools you receive. I am now involved with not just a group of like-minded individuals, but a team of people that have my best interest in mind and are devoted to helping me succeed. In short, my experience thus far has been nothing short of life changing.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Nick Vertucci is for real. Believe it. Invest in yourself.

    As a 40-something with no career and a very small nest egg, it was terrifying to invest most of it in NVREA. The character and transparency of my 3-day seminar teacher, Gene Dinger, convinced me to dive in. One of the best decisions I've ever made.

    Any doubts I had regarding the veracity of Nick V's claims, and the purity of his motives, have been removed. Nick is a regular human who started out in financial distress, and now he is set. He is financially free, and wants to help other people get there as well.

    Nick Vertucci is for real, and NVREA is for real. I'm thinking of the money I invested as very reasonable tuition for the best real estate investment school in the country.

    Your future is as good or as bad as you choose to make it. Invest in yourself, and get on the bus. Stop wasting time.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
