GEORGIA -- I was contacted this evening by the aforesaid company. Quoted what I thought were incredible prices for timeshares I was gullible enough to purchase and now want to sell or rent. I was quoted $1,797.00 and questioned why I would have to pay upfront to sell property-when I would not do that with my home? The representative told me it was for marketing and advertising fees.
I told her I would need to read about her company on the internet and I am so glad I did!!
A seller representative from Resort Equity Marketing (REM) has contact my husband and I several times offering to rent our two rooms deluxe village at a Liki Tiki. He said that the village is in a “hot spot” and that they have pre-qualified clients interested in pay from $2,600 - $2,800 FOR A WEEK. I thought that this is a too good to be true offer, so I start doing my research. All the info about REM I found on the web is negative, many people has been scammed by them. So I was afraid to loose my money. I asked them to write a letter explaining what they said about to refund my $799.00 if they don’t rent the village in 90 days and they reject.
All the posts in this forum and many other sites reviewing REM has been very helpful to decide not to pay for that “service”.
Thank you to all of you.
ALBANY, NEW YORK -- I spoke with a representative at Resort Equity Marketing about 3 months ago to help sell my timeshare that I owned at Summer Bay Resort. At first I thought they were a scam because the whole idea of going to conventions and trade shows sounded to good to be true. However, I got suckered in to giving up $1299.00 for this company Resort Equity Marketing to sell my time share. Well I have finally received an offer after 3 months, which also was within their guarantees they promised me. I received an offer for $23,500 and I took it right away so I'm just waiting on my check to come in the mail now.
I just wanted to inform people who think it is to good to be true for you to sell or rent your timeshares, but I am your witness keep pushing forward until you hear the best offer like I did. Thanks again Resort Equity Marketing
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- My wife and I had signed up with REM to rent out our timeshare in Orlando since we could not be there every year at the same time. REM calls us telling us that they GUARANTEE the rental. They send us some literature saying that they send info to corporations, attend travel shows, etc... After 4 months, I sent an e-mail to them saying that I want some sort of proof that they are doing anything other than having our property listed on their website. Of course, I get nothing, other than a call from one of their flunkies telling me that they are in fact doing these things, but they can't show proof. What a scam! They charge you $600-$700 guaranteeing that they will rent the property, which will cover the fees and plus some. Well, it will be 6 months after the end of March, and nothing at all from them. They say that if they don't come though that we will get 2 airline tickets, but I am sure that that will be a lie also!
Lousy customer service, lousy company, period!
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- I actually am complimenting a review that I read on this site that I think saved me money - and I am grateful.
Of course, I should have recognized the "oily" presentation, but I 'wanted' it to be true and I fell for it. The review here justified my feeling that it was a scam of the sort that states "If it sounds too good to be true - ir probably is."
Thanks to the people who reviewed Resort Equity Marketing for us - it was a valuable piece of info.
