After working with many of the largest players in the timeshare industry, our Chief Legal Officer, a licensed Florida attorney, realized that the timeshare industry was in desperate need of an ethical, experienced, and credible company that has the ability to back up its promises. In addition, he witnessed timeshare owners being victimized by unscrupulous listing and marketing companies that charge an upfront fee. These companies either don’t do what they promise or charge an exorbitant fee only to eventually refer the work to experts like us in order to complete the transfer.

Our legal expertise, as well as the relationships we have developed over the past decade in the industry and our financial wherewithal, allow us to under promise, over deliver and provide us with the ability to back our 100% Guarantee with confidence. Visit us at for more information.

About Big Brothers Big Sisters

The annual tasty fundraising event supports the screening and training of adults, for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida's four types of programs in Brevard County, that assist youth in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become responsible, productive, happy, and healthy young men and women. (1) In the community-based program, an adult is paired one-to-one with a child, age 6-14, to have fun together for a few hours each week in the community. (2) For school-based programs, a working adult visits a child at school or during afterschool care for about an hour per week. (3) The Big Couples program matches married couples with one Little Brother. (4) Mentoring Children of Promise is for children ages 6-17 who have a parent incarcerated in a state or federal prison.
