Ten Years in Timeshare Resales and Timeshare Rentals

We let it pass rather quietly—ten years of successfully serving the timeshare resales and timeshare rentals needs of owners. A full decade of growing a business from a three-person start-up to become the leader in vacation ownership secondary market services.

We are tremendously proud of what we do because we know it impacts lives in very meaningful ways, opening the door to affordable travel accommodations for some vacationers while relieving other couples and families of vacation ownership they no longer enjoy.

In 2008, five years into our business, SellMyTimeshareNOW.com took on $8.5 million in  investment capital from Edison Venture Fund, who then because a minority stockholder and our company’s sole institutional investor.

In 2012, Edison sold its equity interest as part of our company’s merger transaction with Vacation Innovations, LLC, a company founded by Scott Roberts and Chad Newbold. The strategic partnership created the world’s largest timeshare resale and vacation ownership marketing company.

Ten Years in Timeshare Resales and Timeshare Rentals

Along the way, we have added a diversity of vacation ownership services including:

  • By-owner timeshare services
  • Licensed timeshare real estate brokerage through realtors working on a commission basis
  • Timeshare rentals
  • Secured resort rental bookings through Dial An Exchange
  • And timeshare services for resorts, developers, and homeowner’s associations (HOAs).

It’s been an amazing decade growing from three employees to several hundred company-wide; from limited services to a diversity of services, and from an unknown website, to a thriving dot.com. Over the years we’ve written over 2300 blog posts and shared some 15,000 tweets, as well as countless updates to Facebook, LinkedIn, and every other platform we could use to reach out and build relationships with clients, peers, and contacts who so often start as strangers and later become our valued friends.
