Timeshare Exit Team Review

Timeshare Exit Team specializes in helping timeshare owners get out of their unwanted timeshares. They’ve been in business since 2012 and are based in Lynnwood, WA with offices all over the United States. They are much different from a timeshare resale company because they don’t claim to sell any timeshares. Instead, they focus on getting you out and stopping your maintenance fees as fast as possible.

If you own a timeshare, you signed a legally binding contract. Timeshare Exit Team® helps you break that contract. They start with a free consultation to assess your specific timeshare. If you meet their qualifications they will present you with a few options to get out of your contract. You’ll want to make sure you have as much documentation about your timeshare as possible before the free consultation to get the most accurate advice.

The timeshare exit process is expected to take between 9-18 months and the cost will vary by timeshare. However, a representative was quoted in saying that the average Timeshare Exit Team cost is $4,000.

If you qualify for Timeshare Exit Team’s services, they will work on your behalf until they’ve completely gotten the timeshare out of your name forever. If for some reason they’re not able to cancel your timeshare, they offer a 100% money back guarantee.

100% Money-Back Guarantee vs Escrow Payment Option

A 100% money-back guarantee sounds nice, but it doesn’t actually mean anything at all because you must pay the timeshare exit company up-front to begin work. The timeshare exit company could take your money up-front, and then go out of business. If this happens, you may have issues receiving your money back.

Several timeshare exit companies have recently gone out of business as of June 2019. A few of them include:

  • Resort Release
  • AconsumerCredit
  • Castle Law Group
  • UDI Consulting
  • And more.

This is why we here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option. If you pay using an escrow account, the money is held by a third-party escrow company until your timeshare is cancelled. This holds the timeshare exit company accountable and gives them an incentive to complete the work they were hired to do. With escrow, the timeshare exit company does not get paid from the escrow account until AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled.

Alternative Options

Timeshare Exit Team® offers an excellent solution for timeshare owners who are unable to sell or even give away their timeshares. However, before using any timeshare exit company you should educate yourself on alternative options before making a pricey mistake. One alternative option is to try sell your timeshare on the resale market for cash. Do a search on Ebay for your timeshare resort and look for ads that are most similar to your timeshare’s features (week number, number of rooms, view etc.). If there are people bidding on ads for your timeshare, you might be able to get some cash for it by selling it on the resale market.

Many timeshares aren’t worth much at all (with a few exceptions like Disney Vacation Club) and a vast majority of them will likely never sell, even for penny. However, if you can sell it, it’s probably going to be cheaper than hiring a timeshare exit company to cancel it for you, so don’t forget about this option.

Reviews From the Web

Timeshare Exit Team has an A rating with the BBB and positive reviews around the web. They’ve been nationally endorsed by Dave Ramsey who is a popular financial advice personality on the radio and on television. They have over 30 office locations and run multiple radio ads throughout the country. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com have never used their service specifically, but based on their reputation around the Internet and success in getting people out of their contract, our Timeshare Exit Team® review concludes that this is a legitimate company.

Timeshare Answers Review

Timeshare Answers is a timeshare exit and resale company in Orlando, Florida that may be able to help you cancel or sell your timeshare. The company was started in 2009.

It looks like Timeshare Answers owns several different domain names including the following:

Timeshare-answers.com

Timeshare-help.com

Timesharescamhelp.com

Timeshare-question.com

timesharecancelservices.com

We can tell these are all the same company because the phone number or the address of the business is the same on all the sites. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it can be a tad suspicious when one company operates under different brand names.

Reading over the Timeshare-answers.com website and we see that Timeshare Answers says that some timeshares are worthless while others have value. This is a true and transparent statement as a Disney Vacation Club can usually be bought or rented on the resale market while a timeshare from a different resort developer in an over-developed location like Orlando or Vegas may not be worth anything at all. Some timeshare exit companies like to say that all timeshares are worthless so they can get your business, but this is a lie.

Heading over to the services page and we see that Timeshare Answers offers cancellation of your timeshare, rental and resale of your timeshare or a simple timeshare transfer for paid off timeshares. Typically, timeshare exit companies that work with lawyers to cancel your timeshare don’t engage in resale or rental because you must be a licensed real estate agent to sell timeshares on the resale market in Florida. Most licensed real estate agents wouldn’t want to put their license at risk by engaging in timeshare exit services.

Digging in deeper and we see nothing about resale on the timesharecancelservices.com website. This is likely the company’s new website and new business model and Timeshare-answers.com was the old website with a different business model.

Looking over the timesharecancelservices.com website and we see a few things that stand out to us. To start, the company appears to offer a “100% money-back” guarantee like just about every single other timeshare exit company. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so the timeshare exit company only gets paid AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

On the FAQ page we see a question of “Do you charge an upfront fee” and the answer is “All consultations are free and payment is due when services are rendered.” It is unclear at what time the company considers services rendered. Is this before or after your timeshare is cancelled? It wouldn’t make sense to offer “100% money-back” guarantee if payment is not required until after your timeshare is cancelled, so it is likely that “services rendered” means you will pay up front.

On the Services page we see a mention of “Money Recovery” where Timeshare Answers claims it can get your money recovered after your timeshare has been cancelled. This is great if it is true, but we here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com have never heard of any timeshare exit company getting owners any money-back after a cancellation unless there was a class-action lawsuit against the resort such as the case with the Manhattan Club timeshare in New York. Perhaps that is why Timeshare Answers says it is the only timeshare cancellation company that fights to recover your money after your timeshare has been cancelled. The About page claims the company has recovered more than $6,500,000 for timeshare owners.

Timeshare Answers Reviews

Testimonials on the company website are all very positive. This is typical because most companies do not to display negative reviews on their website. Looking off-site on the BBB and we see several positive reviews as well. It is interesting that not one positive review mentions receiving money back after the service is completed.

We aren’t able to find any negative reviews for the company.

Timeshare Answers Cost

Like just about every timeshare exit company, the cost for their services is not available online. There aren’t any reviews on the BBB that mention the Timeshare Answers cost either.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We only recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so the timeshare exit company only gets paid AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Timeshares Only Review

Timeshares Only is a timeshare resale company in Orlando, Florida that has been in business since 2009. The company attempts to sell your timeshare on the resale market rather than cancel it.

Similar to Timeshare Adventures, Timeshares Only charges an up-front fee to advertise your timeshare for sale. This can be problematic because you could pay the company up-front to sell your timeshare, and your timeshare may not sell. In fact, it probably won’t sell considering timeshares for sale on Ebay for $1 don’t even sell.

A search for “Timeshares Only reviews” on Google brings up several negative results. The company has negative reviews on Consumer Affairs, the BBB, Google, Yelp and more.  It’s no surprise that many of these reviews all have one thing in common, owners paid an up-front fee to sell their timeshare and the timeshare never sold.

Reviews for Timeshares Only mention various costs paid to the company to sell your timeshare. Some owners paid a $294 up-front fee while others paid $600. Why the difference in cost we have no idea?

Now, there are a few positive reviews for this company, but most are from customers that bought or rented a timeshare through Timeshares Only. If someone is looking to buy or rent a timeshare on the resale market, it is relatively easy to find them a timeshare for sale because there are so many owners attempting to sell their timeshares. It’s a buyer’s market for sure.

Timeshares Only does stand out from other timeshare resale companies because it offers something called a “TO GO Membership” that provides maintenance fee relief to you while your timeshare is being advertised for sale or rent. According to the website, the TO GO Membership product provides you with low rates at resorts, special deals on tour packages, cruises and other benefits. Sounds like another timeshare or travel club…

Let’s face it, your timeshare lost more than 50% of its value the second you purchased it. You can try to sell if you really want to go through the hassle, but we’d highly recommend NOT paying a high up-front fee to do so.

Most owners just want to get rid of their timeshare and never look back. That’s why so many timeshare exit companies exist these days. You pay a timeshare exit company to work with a lawyer to get your timeshare cancelled. These companies do not sell your timeshare, they cancel it and stop your future fees.

Similar to the timeshare resale industry, we recommend avoiding high up-front fees in the timeshare exit industry as well. When you pay any company up-front, you lose all control. The company could take your money and never cancel your timeshare. This is why we only recommend working with companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow payment option. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

If you still have questions about how to cancel your timeshare, submit a contact form on the right side of the page or initiate live chat.

Timeshare Adventures Review

Timeshare Adventures is a timeshare resale company in St. Petersburg, FL. The company has been in business since 2004.

A simple search for “Timeshare Adventures review” on Google tells you everything you need to know about this company. As of 2/6/19, the company has a D on the BBB with 26 complaints in addition to 9, 1-star reviews on Consumer Affairs and 4, 1-star reviews on Yelp.

So, what’s the reason for all the 1-star reviews and the D rating on the BBB? Simple – the up-front fee. Timeshare Adventures charges timeshare owners an up-front fee to advertise your timeshare for sale on their websites. This is the oldest trick in the book in the timeshare world.

You pay an up-front fee and your timeshare most likely won’t sell. Timeshare Adventures has no incentive to sell your timeshare because you already paid them an up-front fee. In traditional real estate, the real estate agent gets paid AFTER your home is sold, not before.

The idea that you can sell your timeshare for a profit is a fantasy. Timeshare does NOT increase in value after you purchase it. In fact, it decreases by 50% or more. Most timeshares don’t even sell on Ebay for $1.

Based on reviews around the Internet, customers have paid Timeshare Adventures a variety of costs to “sell” their timeshare. Some reviews mention a cost of $650 while others have mentioned paying $895, $900 and even $1,200!

Now, it’s important to note that there are a few positive reviews from customers who seem to have had a positive experience with Timeshare Adventures when buying or renting a timeshare. It is much easier to help someone buy or rent a timeshare because there are so many people trying to sell.

According to the Timeshare Adventure’s BBB page, this company is associated with a timeshare exit company by the name of Helping Timeshare Owners. Timeshare exit companies work with lawyers to get your timeshare cancelled. With timeshare exit services, you pay a timeshare exit company and they cancel your timeshare.

When using a timeshare exit service, you should not expect to get any money back. These companies cancel your timeshare and stop your future fees. They do not claim to “sell” your timeshare because most timeshare are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to sell.

When you’re shopping for a timeshare exit company to work with, our #1 recommendation is to only work with companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow payment option. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

When you pay with escrow, you pay an escrow account up-front, but the timeshare exit company does not get paid from the escrow account until AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled. This gives the timeshare exit company incentive to complete the work it was hired to do – cancel your timeshare once and for all.

Resort Consulting Advocates Review

Resort Consulting Advocates is yet another timeshare exit company offering services to get you out of your timeshare. The company is based in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

The website content is very thin, but there is some info on the FAQ page. On this page Resort Consulting Advocates explains that their service is to get you out of your timeshare. Pretty straight forward. The second FAQ is concerning because Resort Consulting Advocates claims that children are required to inherit timeshare if there is a “perpetuity” clause written in the contract. This is a lie used by timeshare exit companies to make owners feel like they need to hire a timeshare exit company to prevent the kids from inheriting it. The truth is, if the kids don’t want the timeshare upon your death, they do not have to take it. Simple as that.

And that’s it. There isn’t much else information on the website. Not even a phone number. Heading over to the company’s Facebook page and we do see a phone number though along with a few reviews. The three most recent reviews are one star. One review says Resort Consulting Advocates does not answer phone calls, which is not a good sign.

Heading over to BBB page and we see 4 complaints as of 1/4/19. According to a few of the complaints, it appears Resort Consulting Advocates is holding in-person “consultation” meetings with timeshare owners at local hotels. At these “consultation” meetings, owners are provided with strategies to exit their timeshare and are offered the chance to buy a Resort Consulting Advocates vacation club.

The company lures owners to these meetings by offering free gifts, such as one couple that received an Android tablet and $50 Visa gift card. Sound familiar? This is the same as how a timeshare resort developer lures people to their meetings – free gifts.

A search for this company name on Google brings up an article on Ardaroc.org that says Resort Consulting Advocates is in no way affiliates with ARDA or ARDA-ROC. ARDA is short for the American Resort Development Association and is large respected organization within the timeshare industry. Sometimes companies will say they are associated with a bigger, more respected company to fool others in to thinking they are a trustworthy company.

Overall, there are way too many red flags with this company for us to recommend them. We’re unsure whether or not Resort Consulting Advocates charges an up-front fee, but the simple fact that ARDA has issued a warning about them tells you all you need to know. Learn more escrow and why you should never pay an up-front fee when cancelling your timeshare.

Finn Law Group Review

Finn Law Group is a law firm in Largo, FL that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The firm has been in business since 2011 according to the BBB and has good reviews online. Let’s have a look at the website.

On the homepage we see that Finn Law Group states that it has been providing “Timeshare and consumer protection for over 45 years.” This is quite a bit longer than the 2011 business incorporation date reported by the BBB. Perhaps the BBB page is out of date or the company worked under a different brand name in the past. No big deal.

Scrolling down more and we see the lawyers of the firm clearly shown on the website, which is a good sign. Many timeshare exit companies do not display the lawyers they work with on their website, and that can be an issue because you don’t know if the company is working with lawyers or not. If a timeshare exit company is not working with lawyers, it is likely a scam.

Digging in deeper and it appears that these are all legitimate lawyers who are all licensed to practice law. Michael D. Finn, Founder of Finn Law Group, has been quoted about timeshares in several respectable publications such as Inside The Gate and others as well. All very good signs. This is a legitimate law firm in Florida. No fake lawyers here.

Heading over to the Learning Center and we see twelve pages of educational articles for timeshare owners to read. These articles are well-written and well-researched. Finn Law Group clearly knows what it’s talking about when it comes to getting out of a timeshare.

After reviewing the Finn Law Group website, it is unclear if an up-front fee is required to retain their services. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend working with companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow payment option to cancel your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Finn Law Group also warns timeshare owners about the importance of avoiding companies that ask for a large up-front fee to “sell” your timeshare. This is good advice because you’ll likely pay the up-front fee and your timeshare will never sell. Even though Finn Law Group recommends against paying an up-front fee, we can’t find anything saying that they do not charge an up-front fee themselves.

Not paying an up-front fee is just as important in the timeshare exit industry as it is in the timeshare resale industry. A timeshare exit company by the name of Aconsumercredit in Ormond Beach, Florida told timeshare owners it could cancel their timeshare in exchange for an up-front fee, and then went out of business. Timeshare owners paid Aconsumercredit for a timeshare cancellation service that never happened and did not get their money back.

There was also a lawyer specialized in timeshare cancellation by the name of Judson Phillips of Castle Law Group that was disbarred for providing fraudulent timeshare cancellation services. The lawyer promised timeshare owners a cancellation of their contract, but didn’t follow through on these promises and was eventually disbarred for it.

Therefore, we recommend not paying an up-front fee to ANY timeshare exit or resale company, even if it appears to be a legitimate law firm.

Finn Law Group Reviews

The Finn Law Group reviews online are overwhelmingly positive. As of 1/29/19, the firm has a whopping 118 positive reviews on AVVO, 98 positive reviews on Lawyers.com and several positive reviews on Facebook, Google and more as well. This is very impressive.

Finn Law Group Cost

According to several online forums around the internet, the Finn Law Group cost appears to be about $3,000, but this can not be confirmed. You’ll need to contact Finn Law Group to obtain an accurate quote.

Advocate Financial Services Review

Advocate Financial Services is yet another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you cancel your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2011 and is in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

It looks like this company operates a little bit differently from the other timeshare exit companies. Rather than working with lawyers to cancel your timeshare, Advocate Financial Services says that it offers an “Educational Platform” that helps owners learn about laws that can be used to help consumers get rid of their timeshare. Everything is a little vague, so let’s head over to the Contract Cancellation page to learn more.

Heading over to the Contract Cancellation page and Advocate Financial Services begins to explain that timeshare owners have certain rights under “Consumer Protection Laws.” They claim that if the timeshare company lied and deceived you, then you may be entitled to receive compensation. This information sounds good in theory, but it must be noted that it is typically very difficult for a timeshare owner to get any kind of refund when cancelling their timeshare.

The “Educational Platform” is mentioned again on the Contract Cancellation page, and raises a few questions. If the company does not work with lawyers, what exactly are they doing for you? Why would you need to educate yourself on consumer protection laws if you need to hire a lawyer to help you cancel your timeshare? If you hire the right lawyer, he or she should already know what the consumer protection laws are.

We have lots of questions about what this company can do for you that you couldn’t do yourself.

On the credentials page, the company mentions that it is insured and bonded with a $50,000 surety bond. This is the first we’ve seen of this “surety bond” from any timeshare exit company. Apparently, this can protect consumers if Advocate Financial Services does not perform the service as promised. This is a different angle to a no up front fee escrow option. Although this sounds good, we’d still recommend working with companies that offer an escrow payment option so the company does not get paid until after the work has been completed. This keeps the timeshare exit company motivated to complete the work so they can get paid from the escrow account. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Advocate Financial Services Review

There aren’t many reviews of this company online that we can find. We do see two reviews on the company’s BBB page though. One positive and one negative. The negative review mentions harassing phone calls, but it was resolved. The positive review mentions a successful cancellation of the client’s timeshare.

There are several positive reviews on the company’s website on the Testimonial page. Advocate Financial Services does a good job on this page because the testimonials appear to be live audio recordings and pictures of hand written testimonial letters. These could of course be fakes, but they look real enough.

Advocate Financial Services Cost

The Advocate Financial Services cost is not available online. This is typical in the timeshare exit industry. Each timeshare situation is different, so costs can vary.

Overall, our recommendation does not change. Always use an escrow payment option when cancelling your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here. If you still have questions about cancelling your timeshare, contact us using live chat or submit a contact form on the right side of the page.

Resort Legal Team Review

Resort Legal Team is yet another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you get rid of your
timeshare. The company has been in business for 2 years and is in Las Vegas, NV.

A quick search for this company’s brand name brings up a page on the Hilton website that mentions this
company. Hilton is saying that Resort Legal Team mailed its timeshare owners a letter that encouraged
them to cancel their Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare. It looks like Hilton made Resort Legal Team issue
a retraction letter, which isn’t a surprise. Hilton was probably not happy with Resort Legal Team
soliciting its owners and encouraging them to cancel.

Most legitimate companies in the timeshare exit and resale industry do not blindly email, call or mail
owners anything without first receiving consent from the owner to be contacted. Companies that
contact you out of the blue and want to charge you an up-front fee are almost always a scam. With that
being said, let’s have a look at the Resort Legal Team website for more information about this relatively
new company.

On the homepage we see two videos of news reports that explain how terrible timeshares are. Resort
Legal Team has added their brand logo to the upper right-hand corner of each video even though these
videos were produced by CBS and WSJ. For a company that works with a “network of attorneys,” Resort
Legal Team apparently doesn’t have much regard for copyright law.

Scrolling down the homepage we see “timeshare cancellation or your money back!” which is
concerning. The mention of “money back” implies that the customer must pay Resort Legal Team first
before their timeshare is cancelled. This is further confirmed on the FAQ page under “What if you don’t
succeed” question where the company states that you will receive a refund if the cancellation is not
completed within 18 months.

We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend working with timeshare exit companies that
offer an escrow payment option, so the timeshare exit company does not get paid until after your
timeshare has been cancelled. This is the only way to protect yourself from scams. Learn more about
escrow and why it’s important here.

Heading over to the FAQ page and we see some things we like. We like how Resort Legal Team doesn’t
require owners to meet with them in person because this can inflate the total cost for everyone
involved. We also like how Resort Legal Team answers the question about cancelling debt owed to a
bank or credit card and not the timeshare company. At this time, we do not know of any timeshare exit
company that cancel timeshare debt owed to a bank or credit card, so we like the transparency here.

Resort Legal Team Cost

Like most timeshare exit companies, the resort legal team cost is not available online. On the FAQ page
the company mentions that there are too many factors to consider for each individual case, so a general
cost cannot be provided. This is understandable.

Resort Legal Team Reviews

This company is relatively new, so we are unable to find my reviews online. There is one positive review
on the company’s Google My Business page though. No complaints on the BBB.

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We only recommend working with timeshare exit
companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you are protected from scams. Learn more about
escrow and why it’s important here.

Donate For A Cause Review

Donate For A Cause is one more timeshare exit company that may be able to help with your timeshare
cancellation. This company has an interesting backstory. Apparently, in the past, the company was
telling timeshare owners they could donate their timeshare to Donate For A Cause and write the
donation amount off on their tax returns. This didn’t work out well for them because the United States
Department of Justice filed a complaint against Donate for a Cause in November 2015 and Donate For A
Cause was eventually barred from continuing this scheme. This information is displayed on the
homepage of the company’s website.

The problem with timeshare is that many can be purchased on Ebay or other online marketplaces for as
little as $1. If timeshares are for sale for $1, why would a charity want you to give them one? If they
wanted a timeshare that badly, they could go on Ebay and buy one themselves. But they won’t because
they don’t want to be responsible for the timeshare’s yearly maintenance fees just like you.

Looking at the Donate For A Cause’s website in January 2019 and it looks like the company has turned
into a commission based brokerage service. Brokerages are a great option if your timeshare has value
because the broker only gets paid a commission of the sale, so you don’t have to take any risk. The
problem is, brokers only want to work with high value timeshares because their commission will be
higher. If you find your timeshare for sale for $1 on Ebay, there is a good chance no broker will want to
work with you.

Interestingly, Donate For A Cause has a page on its website about “timeshare relief” and “get rid of your
timeshare.” Here, the company mentions that its sister company, Timeshare Specialists, can “liquidate”
unwanted timeshares that are in low demand on the resale market. On the Get Rid of Your Timeshare
page, they mention that Timeshare Specialists does not charge an up-front fee to get rid of your
timeshare, which is a very good sign. We never recommend paying an up-front fee when cancelling your
timeshare.

Very few, if any, timeshares increase in value after being purchased from a resort developer. Most lose
50% or more of their value the second they are purchased from a resort developer directly. If you own a
high value timeshare such as a Marriott Aruba Surf Club or any of the Disney Vacation Club timeshares, a
broker such as Donate For A Cause might be a good option for you. Unfortunately, brokers are unable to
help with a majority of timeshares because many timeshares can’t even be given away for $1 on Ebay.

If you own a timeshare that you’d like to cancel, and a broker is unable to help you, we always
recommend working with timeshare timeshare exit companies that offer no up-front fee escrow
payment options, so you are protected from scams. Learn more about no up-front fee escrow here.

American Resource Management Group Review

American Resource Management Group Review

American Resource Management Group is yet another timeshare exit company that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The company has been in  business since 2013 and is located in Rockford, IL.

It appears that this another company under the Resort Advisory Group, Resort Release and Redemption & Release umbrella. Each company is owned by the same management. This is made obvious by the link to the company’s BBB page that connects the four brand names.

Looking at the homepage, we see the same misleading claim of “prevent your children from inheriting by default” that we saw on the Redemption and Release website. Again, this is misleading information perpetuated by many of the timeshare exit companies hoping to scare you into using their services. The truth is, you do not need a timeshare exit company to prevent your kids from inheriting your timeshare. If your kids don’t want your timeshare upon your death, they simply do not have to take it.

Once again, we see one of those “100% Money Back Guarantee” badges on the website. If there is a money-back guarantee, that implies that you must pay money first and trust the company to give it back later if the timeshare exit fails to complete. This is something we recommend against here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com for a variety of reasons. Mainly because there have been so many other companies that made this same guarantee, then later went out of business and never refunded anyone’s money. This is why we always recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow option, so the timeshare exit company is only paid after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Moving over to the transfer process page and we see a vague description of the company’s services. Basically, sign up for their service and become timeshare free. Not many details are provided on how this happens, but according to the website, the company says, “there is no hidden method to what we do.” Perhaps more information is provided during the consultation as there isn’t a whole lot of information on this page.

Moving over to The Timeshare Headache page and we several stats quoted, but sources not cited. The company mentions the following statistic on this page:

Right now there are over 8 million timeshare owners and approximately 50% of them are currently looking for a way out.”

We aren’t sure where this statistic came from, but it is interesting how different it is from statistics put out by the American Resource Development Group (ARDA) that states an 83% satisfaction rate amongst timeshare owners. It is important to note that ARDA is an advocate for the resorts, so their stats may be bias. So much cloak and dagger in this ridiculous timeshare industry!

Heading over to the FAQ page and we immediately see something we like. Here, American Resource Management Group states that their service is for timeshare owners who have already attempted to give back their timeshare to the developer. This transparency is a good sign. It is always advised that timeshare owners work with their resort first before hiring a timeshare exit company.

American Resource Management Group Reviews

The American Resource Management Group Reviews online are quite impressive. There are over 300+ positive reviews on the Resort Release BBB page (Resort Release is owned by the same owners of American Resource Management Group). There are also several positive testimonials on the company’s website. Most reviews look to be for Resort Release. Perhaps that is their primary brand? We’re still unsure why this company operates under 4 different brand names…

American Resource Management Group Cost

Again, the American Resource Management Group cost is not available online. No surprised here. Most timeshare exit companies do not display their cost on their website.

Overall, we still recommend working with timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you are 100% protected from all possible scams. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here. Contact us using the contact form on the right side of the page or initiate live chat.
