Nouveau Riche - Renatus

This used to be Nouveau Riche.I think they changed it because the posse was closing in.

This "school" is a major ripoff...they suck you in with huge costs for classes only to find out YOU NEED TO BUY MORE CLASSES...I bought the basic Essentials course and while it has a lot of info most of it can be found in a library for free....some of the videos run well and some are not so's all about MLM and you should stay away. Even after buying in at basic level the "Founders" ignore you unless you continue to buy more or bring other suckers in. Some students do well in R.E. but considering the thousands they drag through the mill it is probably equal to the general population % as a whole.

Many of the instructors are successful but you find they were so before they became involved with Renatus.RUN AWAY!

I've only given it a cursory look, so far, but can already tell you didn't put ANY effort in, if you haven't recouped in the first year at least 3x what you paid. The strategies in the essentials are enough to pay for the FULL membership....*when they are put into use*. Even a regular old w-2 employee can save more than the cost of the program without doing anything in real estate, just from the tax class!
I've looked at (been dragged to) many MLM presentations. This is only a distant relative. Depth is not unlimited, and revenue is not recurring. This is PRODUCT driven, and that is what any good MLM that lasts focus's on. This is all about the *education*. And way.....WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY...cheaper than other coaching programs, and with lifetime membership and support.
I'm gonna join. You should come back and talk to me.

Really????? This is a rip off if you don't do anything.
Calculus information is in the Library too... I didn't learn it by reading the book.
Additional classes? There are only 3 curriculums... Essentials ( which you enrolled in AND NEVER ATTENDED) AIT which includes 2 majors and the Combo package which includes everything! There are no more classes ... You are a liar.
Finally... Absorbent costs? Really? What does a Semester at the local community college cost? $3000. Buck? At Renatus I got a full year for $1997.
Why are you propetuating this GIANT lie?

Than Merrill's "Fortune Builder's" is the same story. they want approximately $12K for the basic membership (like someone trying to get into this has that laying around the house), and $32K for the elite where they basically do everything for you.

Can you substantiate any of this? Attorney General and BBB have no problems with this company.
I researched MLM, ponzi, etc. and no one hear has proven the company at fault for anything.
The company is actually filed correctly and legally with the Secratary of State for Utah and there is nothing with about Renatus at all. has a great standing well above all other Real Estate Education sales competitors.
I'm going to go sit in on their meetings to ask in-depth questions and verify info for myself rather than base my decisions on conjecture.
Folks - let's just get the facts from the source!

I don't personally know your circumstances but I will tell you that the education I have received has been emensly valuable. One deal more than pays for the education. Yes you can get information on the Internet but keep in mind that it not current, nor free since my time is extremely valuable. The legal ramifications could be disastrous not to mention jail time and the IRS alone can set you spiraling downward into failure. You are correct that there is a program OFFERED to those who wish to create a second stream of income through paying it forward and helping others to realize their dreams and goals in life. In a job who makes the money to realize their dreams and goals in life, the boss or employee. I know that there are dropouts in every phase of life who blame their failures or excuses for not following through on others. That's okay as there is more than enough success in life from those who did decide that THEY-THEMSELVES are worth success at the cost of determination to do so.

I went to a rich dad seminar about one year ago. They wanted almost 65k for 8 online classes. No local group or national network to latch yourself on to...just an 800 number for questions. No coaching unless you spend thousands more.. upsell, upsell, upsell...Renatus has coaching and offices nationwide of real people learning and helping each other. Spending 2-15k on your education is a drop in the bucket compared to college, and you can have that money back with your first deal which you can't do with college. I understand this is not for everyone, but that does not make it a scam. You will never get wealthy from a 9-5 job and you will be building other people's dreams, not your own....and for the person who said employees are posting positive comments, Renatus does not have employees, it has satisfied customers. They pay people for sharing the opportunity, not to make posts on blogs like this.

Renatus is not MLM at all. You are purchasing a product, which is education. You can build a sales team inf you are interested in participating in the marketing, you are not required too. There is no auto ship or upsell. There is a series of classes that start with beginning, just like college, and move you up. You do not have to take them all. MLM's do not pay 50% average on commission. The compensation was derived from the insurance industry. Also, many managers earn commission off their sales team based on performance. People really need to understand what they are talking about first. This is not for everyone. If you take the classes and do the work, you will succeed. If not, you are your own worst enemy, and it has nothing to do with the company.

DemoGod...really? THAT'S your name on here? That in itself causes me to question your integrity in the first place.
So really, how much time and EFFORT did you put into this to really make it work? And how much time and EFFORT did you put into ANY school before you started seeing any income from it?

I can see it is an MLM. I found this page useful. Thanks for helping me avoid MLM's which are based on greed and cost more than they are worth for 90% or more of those who join. Research Multi Level Marketing (MLM) online and see for yourself. Just sayin'... Have a good day.

I got rip by a so call investor and put $2000 dollars, to learn how to become one... instead was told it was for my education, they lied and make me believe that I was going to get my money back plus more.. in the end the ones that kept my money were the one that passed himself as an investor and the company ... I got nothing in return.. And to boot they kept all my money for nothing in return... Bad people there... :(

Didn't you go to a presentation or webinar. If you had you would have known that 1997.00 is the price for the essential s course! Did you think you were going to get a house for two grand? Amazing! I have no words.

Ok just to fill in the people who may see these comments; the positive comments you see people giving renatus are renatus employees.

They pay people to give positive reviews. Renatus is just a MLM marketing scam. They only way you make money is by marketing the "school" to you friends and family. When you do this you get half the cost for the classes they take. The school is usually around 15k to attend. That's means you get 7.5k for every sucker(usually your friends and family) you dupe.

After awile everyone who knows you hates you because you stole their money.

Renatus is not a school. It a marketing job. The only problem is that you market a school that doesn't exist. And the school itself it just a collection of google searches on real estate investments.

Absolute total scam.

yea... not MLM at all. MLM makes you sell stuff to people who don't need or want a product. this is a school for investors. I'm not an employee of renatus nor do I "sell" the school. but I did become a decent investor because of them. Bottom line is if you know about real estate you know that fix n flips and tax sales can snag you some hefty pay days... but you have to do the work to make the money. I love how you state this as fact with no knowledge of the school itself. Looks like slander to me?
