Intro to my blog

Real Estate Agent with Timeshare Liquidation Service, LLC


My name is Michael Murphy.  I work for and am part owner of Timeshare Liquidation Service, llc a Real Estate Brokerage in Downtown Redmond, WA.  My parents started this company 15 years ago to assist WorldMark the Club in helping their owners liquidate their Timeshare ownerships.

Bill Peare was the founder of Trendwest Resorts, the original developer for the WorldMark product.  He built the Club from a handful of condo units at Ottercrest, to about 50 resorts located across Washington, Oregon, California, Mexico, British Columbia, and speckled through various other states, AZ, NM, TX, UT, ID, CO, and HI.  The club was developing and expanding at a rapid pace when they were sold to Cendant Corporation, which eventually rebranded in WorldMark by Wyndham.

The club is a separate Not For Profit entity that owns and manages the collection of resorts that now total over 65 locations across the US, Canada, and Mexico.  The developer, Wyndham, has exclusive development rights for WorldMark but the actual WorldMark properties are owned collectively by WorldMark Owners.  WorldMark contracts allow you access to ANY resort in the system without paying additional Exchange fees.  It is the most PURE timeshare product in the industry, consistently ranks in the top 5 industry wide for customer service, reservation access, and also affordability.  In the words of Bill Peare, founder of the Club, "WorldMark is not a cadillac, it's an Oldsmobile....It will get you where you want to go without breaking the bank."

I will continue to update this blog as I go, there is a lot to cover, and I invite anyone to ask me questions, and I will answer them as I have time.

Hi Michael, I am looking to start a similar business here in Florida and would love to have an opportunity to hear how you run your business. There is not that much information out there on how to start a Timeshare resale business, so any info or direction you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
