I began my career 10 years ago in the timeshare industry in the heart of the strip in Las Vegas Nevada. Starting out I worked for the first developer of timeshare industry which is now currently the 2nd largest private developer in the world. During my years I have worked in various different aspects of the industry and self-educated myself with all the information available through these companies as well as online books and courses. One of my first experiences in the industry was selling timeshare re-sales, where we charged people an upfront listing fee to sell their units. After this I became aware the company I was working for along with nearly every other was scamming owners out of their hard earned money. This job made me aware of the fact that nearly every timeshare owner would like to sell their timeshare or rent it at some point in their life, but there were few legitimate resources for them to turn to. Starting around 5 years ago I began a career as an in-house sales professional for one of the top private developers in the industry. During my first two years I was the number one sales agent in the entire corporation. During this time I talked to thousands of timeshare owners and found out their needs and concerns and how they would best like them handled. Progressing through my career I went into sales management and have lastly moved to the largest developer Wyndham Vacation Ownership. After dealing with owners of various different programs I had many more owners all with similar concerns. Because of the lack of knowledge and training the developers give timeshare owners many owners do not know how to use their property to their full advantage. I have written my book and started my accompanying business to bring honesty and ethics to the secondary market. My goal is to make sure as many people as possible never fall prey to a scam again and find legitimate and easy ways to use their packages to their fullest advantage.

This book comes from personal experience, both as a long time timeshare owner and from selling vacation ownership. What prompted this book? Well, for too many years I have listened to too many people whom, for whatever reasons have a negative impression about the timeshare or vacation ownership industry. As an owner I inevitably found myself asking them why. The reasons varied from ?they do not work? to ?we cannot afford it.? For those folks this book will open your eyes. The second reason was for all those owners who honestly do not have a clue as to what they own. I wanted to let people understand something that they did not already know or have simply forgotten. Having been a timeshare owner for over twenty-five years I understand, and have experienced, the public perception of the industry. I have also seen it change dramatically during that time. However, it was during my first few years in Mexico when I sold timeshare that I came to understand, and appreciate, the real public perception of the industry. From these experiences I realized that the industry could use a simple ?how to? and ?why? book. The book is written in a simple, straight forward manner that is easy to understand. The book covers the history, marketplace, the players, the IN?s and Out?s of attending a sales presentation, of buying one — good and bad, legislation and much more. A quick, easy read it contains personal stories and antidotes, and easy, self awareness quizzes for you to do. By the end you will know whether or not timeshare is right for your lifestyle.
There are only so many options available for vacationing. These include: owning a vacation home outright, pay as you go and stay at hotels & motels, camping or rving or motor homing, possibly staying with friends or family and timeshare or interval ownership. Interval ownership, hereafter referred to as timeshare, is where you receive all the same benefits of vacation home ownership, but you will generally own the week or two that you use.
