You own a beautiful timeshare, but your job and other commitments are making it difficult to get away. With annual maintenance fees due in January, now is the time to monetize your investment by renting out those unused weeks.

Concierge Realty presents an innovative solution that has helped thousands of timeshare owners monetize their unused vacation homes and villas to offset maintenance fees and travel expenses. The Orlando Florida-based company offers comprehensive timeshare resale, rental and travel services.

“We work with the biggest brands in vacation ownership and an extensive network of travel agents, who routinely turn to us for accommodations,” says Michelle Donato, founder and owner, Concierge Realty. “Our goal is to provide the most personalized service possible and guidance to help owners maximize their vacation ownership.”

All-Around Win
Concierge Realty addresses a real need of owners and developers. A percentage of timeshare units listed for sale go unused due to the large number of memberships on the resale market and the strength of new sales at resorts and sales centers. This unused inventory creates an immediate loss of onsite spend for resorts and frustration for sellers, which can lead to delinquencies in annual dues.

Offering a fresh approach, Concierge Realty helps owners rent their units to offset maintenance fees. The arrangement leaves them with little or no annual financial obligations while they are in the process of selling their membership.

The company recently launched a new service that lets owners expand their horizons, while also containing travel expenses. Working closely with clients, Concierge Realty helps owners rent their own unit and then rent another in a different destination at a similar cost.

Supporting the company’s rental program is a robust network of travel agencies with high demand for spacious accommodations in top destinations from non-timeshare-owning clients eager to enjoy the unused weeks.

In this way, Concierge Realty services are a boon to timeshare resort developers, too. They enable developers to turn empty villas into lucrative rentals and fill unsold inventory with quality candidates for membership. The result is an all-around win, benefitting owners, guests and developers alike. 

No Fees
Working with Concierge Realty, owners have no upfront fees and no long-term commitments. Realtor commissions are paid by guests. Owners have the flexibility to sell or rent their timeshare at their convenience, whenever they like to whomever they like.

Concierge Realty eliminates the need for owners to field inquiries as well. The company does all the legwork, spreading the word about available vacation homes and villas via an array of sophisticated marketing channels to a vast network of hundreds of thousands of potential guests.

Leader in Vacation Ownership
Savvy travelers and agents turn to Concierge Realty again and again because of the company’s dedicated service and full inventory of upscale and luxurious properties by the leaders in vacation ownership: Marriott Vacation Club, Ritz Carlton Club, Starwood Vacation Ownership, Hilton Grand Vacations, Hyatt Vacation Club and Disney Vacation Club, among others. These resorts are located in dream beach and ski destinations throughout the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. Think Aruba, St. Thomas, Maui, Orlando, Hilton Head Island, Vail, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos and more. Ideal for couples, families and friends, units feature one or more bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, large living and dining areas and spectacular views.

Concierge Realty was founded in 2011 by licensed real estate broker Michelle Donato. A leader in real estate and vacation ownership, Ms. Donato has achieved more than $50 million in timeshare sales during her career, making her one of the nation’s top sales agents.
