Good morning. This company has a "D" rating with the BBB. See the following link with regard to complaints regarding this company: https://www.bbb.org/concord/business-reviews/timeshare-resale-and-rental-marketing/sell-my-timeshare-now-in-portsmouth-nh-92008632/Alerts-and-Actions

Whatever company you eventually choose, you should never send any money up front. No fees are incurred in a real estate transaction unless the deal closes and they are telling you the deal is real so they should take the risk and let their fees come from the sales proceeds. The fact that they want them up front tells me they have no closing planned. All these companies know that timeshare owners are desperate to unload their timeshares and the maintenance fees that come with them and they take advantage. At worst, you should tell them you will put up the fee, but it is to be held in escrow with an INDEPENDENT national title company with an escrow agreement that it gets released without the signature of the other side if your timeshare does not close within the 90 day period for whatever reason. If they do not agree on that, they simply intend to take your money.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
