It sounds to me like most of the reviews were written by shills. A good portion of them have the same language problems... to put it mildly. Very few of the complaints had any substance to them.
I got the impression that the majority of the so-called complainers did not follow the instructions and therefore got poor results. That might be giving too much credit. Seriously, I think that nearly all of the supposed complaints were posted by shills. They aren't very good at their job or it wouldn't be so blatantly obvious.
I am doing research prior to signing up for Marko's course. Until I reached this site, everything looked fine. Shills just waste my time. Go crawl behind your rock and stay there. I'm looking for honesty, not stupidity.

These reviews crack me up!
These reviews of Marko are ridiculous. Marko is a top notch educator. I have spent $50k+ on my real estate education over the years and I can tell you he is by far the best. His techniques that he teaches are flawless and very effective. My guess is these negative reviews are because the people that bought into the course/system haven't taken the time or energy to perfect the skills that are required to be successful in this business. They just expect to push a button and make millions! I'm sorry but that is not going to happen so by default someone is going to be blamed and that person is Marko.

I have been a Realtor for over 12 years, and my father was showing me how to look up foreclosures on microfiche, when I was 15yrs old.
If you've never been in Real Estate, you will be a little overwhelmed with all the information he gives. Myself I found a lot of it review, but I am picking up things, that I hadn't thought of & learning a few things as well.
I have never had to wait more than a minute on hold, and his people have always been helpful and kind.
The people on this site can post anything they want, unchallenged. I would suggest doing your research, and checking into his program.
I haven't been dissapointed.

HORRIBLE PEOPLE.....SCAM ARTISTS. Call them yourself and you will see just how bad of people they are. They are scumbags! Stay away!!

He is exactly what he says he isn't...a GURU!
Marko, you state you want to team up with people on investments 50/50 and you have unlimited funding. I bet you do have unlimited funding. However, no one has access to talk to you in order to do a 50/50 deal with you. Anyone who calls is assigned to sales personnel. Why would I want to buy a bunch of CD's, a diamond program, and pay on and on for this and that before you decide if I am a worthy person to speak to or to do a 50/50 deal with? That is crazy. I will put my money into buying and selling houses before giving it to some Guru. Guru programs, including yours are full of lies and misleading information. You have to keep buying and keep buying to learn the secrets which no matter how much you pay, they never tell you, because they don't have all the answers themselves. Why? Because there are no secrets, other than every deal is different and comes with its own set of challenges. You either understand the market or you don't. Some deals are quick and easy and others take a bit more work. I want to buy and sell real estate. I do not want to give my money away to Guru's selling study courses. If I want to get further information on REI I can buy all the books I need at my local bookstore, I can ask another investor, real estate agent, county clerks, attend a REIC or explore the internet, for free or for a few dollars. What you have to offer is no different than all the other GURU out there making a bad name for REI. You just learned from those Guru's, (who probably ticked you off) that you can do the same thing and ignorant people (like you once were) will give you money, and lots of it. You state you are different from the Gurus out here. How does your exact same strategy make you any different? You sell the same course information, CD's, study guides, and so on. You hold conferences for a few days. You have even copied the Inner Circle that all the rest have. After several discussions with a sales advisor I don't find your program to be any different than any other REI Guru. You are just replicating what you were taught by some other Guru. If you really want to be different, than be different. If you want to be a Guru stop trying to convince the world that you are not a Guru and just be who and what you are. Me, I am not paying you or anyone else a dime for free information that is all around me. I called you about your challenge to partner up on deals. I don't pay people to partner up with me. I want to make my share of the money. I have to feed and care for my family just like you. If you don't partner up with people, or offer unlimited funding for REI's, unless you first get paid for your courses, stop advertising that you do. It is called false advertising and it is illegal. You're going to get sued one day. America is the land of the free, but that does not mean we do not have laws that you have to follow.

Wait until you see the reviews on YouTube
Anybody can write good and bad reviews on a site like this that doesn't require verification.
Go to YouTube.com and search reviews on his name - it's a lot harder to lie on the camera!
Shocking!! Check it out...

I like this site, here's why...
After been in real estate investing for over 4 years, I came accross Marko R.
My experience has been nothing but excellent. After spending 4 days with him, it is evident that he is an expert who comes from real experience and the one who works the business, not just teach seminars.
On top of it, he didn't bring a single speaker-salesman to sell us another product, but he spent 10 hrs (some days 12hrs) himself transferring his knowledge and experience - not common for the seminars today. He didn't need to work that hard that but everyone appreciated.
Little over 3 weeks later, I did my best deal so far and because of it I was able to leave my full time job. I feel that without Marko and his training that would have never happened. So, I'm grateful.
I like sites like this because they keep competition away. It's ok to keep my competition as far as possible from Marko... let them spend money on other gurus LOL LOL
Now, I wrote this review becuase I think it's injustice to Marko to spread misinformation and allow unregistered people, often other seminar gurus, etc. to write whatever they want against their competitor.

HIGH INTEGRITY! He is the most honest R.E. teacher!
Wow! I don't know how I got to this site, but after reading these posts here, I am getting upset. This is NOT true. I've known Marko for over 3 years now and the man has the highest integrity one would ever need or want in a teacher.
I attended his live seminar 3 times so far, and can't even begin to say how much it has changed my life. When I met Marko, I was almost broke. Now 3 years later I have over $11,500 in passive income coming to me every month, and hundreds of thousands in equity in the properties acquired using his investing principles. I don't know where I'd be if it wasn't for him.
I can also state that I've met many successful students at his seminars, and through his programs. I stayed in touch with many of them for years and there's nothing bad anyone had ever said about him. PERIOD.
My advice to anyone is to continue your research until you find the truth.

What a Pain!
Marko offers a great product, except you can't really use it everywhere. The knowledge works, but it is out of date. Plus, why would you want to contribute to the problem, instead of the solution? If you call his office be prepared for long hold times, angry people on the phone, this one lady, I think her name was Jenny, literally yelled at me, like full on bellowing, and told me to 'respect her and her people,' and a general air of annoyance.
Can you believe that someone would yell at a customer? I wasn't even being rude, I was just asking a question.
Anyway, I have been a customer for a while. The customer service and technical support used to be better a few years ago. but it has really gone down hill this year (2014).
Unless you get angry and demand to speak to Marko himself, if you have a problem, you really aren't going to get anywhere.
Think for yourself and make your own decision.

Marko is a poor speaker and a gold-digger
I listened to his so called webinar. After 30 minutes I was ready to opt out; however, I was trying to giving the benefit of the doubt and try to listened all the way. After an hour, he was still talking, not speaking, about himself and so called successes. However, nothing about his plan. When someone tries so hard to convince you of their product, and are very winded like Marko, it means that they do not have a good product. Finally, after an hour I opted out; and I am glad I did. And now after I read all the horrible stories from his victims, my heart goes out to them. Don't be his victim. You can file complaints online with the BBB, Consumer Affair Agency, Fraud Department in your state, and with your bank if you paid with a credit card. I am lucky I am only $6.95, and with an insomniac night due to the headache listening to his winded webinar. Dana, CPA.

I've lost my life savings because of this bastard
I saved money for years and decided to invest the funds somewhere for a short time and get some profit for living. I have found many good reviews on Marko Rubel Company and they were dealing with the short-time investing plans.
I called to their office and got half-hour consultation from their manager, who was very convincing and finally persuaded me to invest all the money I had. Of course, he was a professional and he has already scammed many people the same way. But I didn’t know that at that date.
They promised me a good interest rate and I decided that it is a great opportunity to earn. However, I tried to get some information about my investment later and lost the contact with the company. The customer service didn’t pick up the tube and my emails left without answer. After about three months I finally got in touch with them and they told that I have lost my investment and they can’t do anything to help me. They told me that I was warned about real estate investment risks. Of course I was, but I couldn’t believe I lost the money. It seems to me that they have just scammed me and assigned my money.

I will file a case for my stolen money!
Don't cooperate with this fraud!
I was also a victim, and I had gone through the same situation. At first they ask you to pay for the services, however, it is nowhere to be said that you will not be able to use the program in full.
When I called them up and asked what is the problem that I am not able to log in, they tell you that it was never discussed that I would use the whole system. But it is ridiculous! I need to get in touch with someone who is in charge, but they would not let me speak to anyone.
I have lost my money, but I will not let them get away with this scam so easily. They think they can make money on innocent people and hope that everyone is an idiot or afraid to go to the police. Well, I am not afraid and I will file a case against them.
YOU WILL HEAR FROM ME, MARKO RUBEL!

no service for payment which I made.
Beware and be careful with Marko Rubel it is better to avoid any business with this person. His business is about scamming people out of money - this person offers business consulting but actually just takes money and then never provides services as it was promised. I never received business consultation from him but luckily I managed to get all money which I paid him back.
This person is suspicious from the first sight - his poor English and rude service, but his presentation is quite good and it attracts people. Beware - this is not true! If you trust this person you might loose your money!!!

I recommend NOT to order anything
It seems a lot of hype goes into promoting "free" product I ordered the free DVD for $6.95 and watched Marko BS without any info promised in the promo. His system is mediocre, the software is poorly designed and the customer service is for shit!!! Wasted my money. I recommend NOT to order anything, no refund was possible.
I wish somebody told me to save my money like I am telling you all. Its up to you.

Their courses is just a trap for naive customers
I was exploring the possibility of high return short-time investment and one of the first names I got through Google was Risk is Profit Grabber. At first I would like to tell that I understand that often an investment won't give you the outcomes you want, but I expected to be able to get my money whenever I need it but my managed fund suddenly freeze withdrawals.
I also know that it’s simply impossible to avoid all the risks when you invest. Higher potential returns usually come with higher risks. The important thing is to understand the risks and then keep within a level you are comfortable with. However, the level of education and advices from Profit Grabber are lower than lowest and they didn’t even manage to give me this information, because I knew it before. Actually they avoided many important facts and strategies and after I finished the education there was no clearness in the investment sphere for me.
I don’t think that someone should attend these lectures as they are useless and it’s just waste of money. I would recommend searching for other training or courses just like I am doing right now. I understood that it is impossible to get necessary knowledge during 10 lectures. Avoid such scams!

Don't fall for this scam
I am a businessman and I was going to make short-time investment for $50000. It’s a big sum of money and I decided to hire a consulting company. However, after some investigation I came to conclusion that it’s more effective to go for training myself and then to choose the most profitable sphere of investing.
Like many other victims I’ve fallen for Profit Grabber advertisement and decided to take the course they offered. It seemed a good deal. I used to attend about 15 lectures and even got a certificate. They took $3000 and promised high-qualified lecturers from well-known universities.
However, the reality was different. There were about 7 lecturers in total because all the other time we were sitting just alone in the classroom and were doing some work that no one checked then. These 15 lectures I attended were awful. Taking into account that I knew nothing about the investment opportunities, after a month and a half I knew maybe 2% more. And all the knowledge I actually got was available on the internet and I could simply read some two-three articles by myself (without paying thousands of dollars) and get the same idea about investing. It’s simply ridiculous that this company is claiming to be a respected institution.

My experience with Marko Rubel was anything but good
My experience with Marko Rubel was anything but good.
His presentation is very slick, in his broken English. He sells a system that gets county records information and matches your requirements with the records. You can do the same thing by subscribing to countyrecordsresearch.com and creating your own spreadsheet or database.
What Rubel doesn't tell you, but it is very clear in the product's user manual, is that you will need to assistance of a licensed realtor to fully use his system. His systems requires full access to the MLS, and only licensed realtors and realtor employees have full access. In addition, it is also unethical and perhaps illegal for them to allow anyone else to use their login and password.
It was a hassle, but I made him refund all of my money.
