I signed up with REM on 5/27/2009. I sent the $395. The last time I spoke to a live person was 5/11/2010. I called today 4/6/2013 and left a message. I wonder if the "contract" I received was legal or not? Anyway, I went to try and find the web site and was unable to find it. I would like to now cancel my contract. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 04/08/2013Add reply
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- About a month ago my husband and I signed up with Resort Equity Marketing. We received a call from a [snip] who's claimed he would sell out Bonnet Creek timeshare. He gave us an astronomical quote of more than 40,000 for it if we agreed to pay 1,499. The arrangement was that it would be sold guaranteed within 6 months but was supposedly going to be sold in 3. Neither happened. It was a scam. We tried to get our money back but it was too late.

BEWARE THIS SCAM AND PLEASE STAY AWAY!
It took REM 63 days from the day I signed up with them to sell my timeshare. I did read some of the bad things on the internet just like you have. I own my business and I have found out that ANYONE CAN WRITE ANYTHING ABOUT YOU!!!! I have had terminated employees write things that have hurt my business. I was very happy with the way REM handled everything. I am now timeshare free! No more mantinance fees!! No more hoping I can get to use the timeshare (because they always seem to be booked!)
Thank you REM!!! I have sent other people to you!!!!
Im rather confused by all these negative postings pertaining to REM. I received a call about six months ago, paid my 1300 advertisement fee and they started sending my offers to my doorstep. I had my timeshare off my hands in 67 days! Add reply
WINTER PARK, FLORIDA -- After ready a complaint I couldn't believe what I read. For starters if that person would have kept in contact they would have received results. I was afraid to pay upfront but took the risk. I owned a timeshare in New Smyrna Beach and thought yeah right you can sell that. well guess what they did to my surprise within 65 days I was rid of it, not saying it was a bad place but money wise I could have stayed elsewhere. Now I don't own and made a good, very good profit. As in anything you try to sell keep abreast of what you are doing and you get results, CiaraAdd reply
YARDLEY, PENNSYLVANIA -- I would like to give everyone my three cents and say that I have successfully sold my timeshare with the help of Resort Equity Marketing. I signed up with REM about 3-4 months ago and paid them $1295 so I can get my property marketed. My TS was in Hawaii and I paid $41,000 for it two years ago and I sold it for $72,900, I almost doubled my money. I would highly suggest REM to anyone that wants to sell their timeshare!

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FLORIDA -- All I can say is "crap" I am feeling like I stepped in it. I was called by REM to rent my timeshare for me for a fee of $ 899.00. I was told I would have plenty of "bids" on my timeshare to chose from within 30 days my timeshare would be rented out no problems. I was even told I could get my $ refunded to me no questions asked. Well it has been over 30 days no offers, no answers on the telephone, no returned messages. No one will talk to me. Now what am I supposed to do to get my money back?

Not All Bad Experiences Mean Scam!

Resort Equity Marketing sold my timeshare and I was paid more than I expected in less than 45 days. Great job, professional service. They don't deserve all the negative comments posted on this site. Add reply
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FLORIDA -- We really needed to sell our time share due to financial difficulties. We received a call from REM and they had a great sales pitch and said we'd get a $1000 shopping spree if it didn't sell in 180 days. They wanted $800 for their fee but when I said I couldn't afford that they lowered it to $299 so I said yes. After they charged my credit card I never heard another word from them. When I called to at least get some kind of proof that they marketed our property they said they couldn't do that. I never received any offers, nor did I get the $1000 shopping spree.

This is a SCAM. All they want is money from you, whatever they can get. They offer no proof of anything they do for you.
DON'T GET SCAMMED TOO!
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!!
I've been working with Resort Equity Marketing and so far it's been a very positive experience. Does anyone else have a positive experience? Add reply

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
