Escape To Paradise / Timeshare Resale
Escape to Paradise represents itself to be an expert in the timeshare resale industry with specialized skill in marketing and advertising as well as access to a wealthy base of potential clients in the Newport Beach area. In July of 2008 I paid this company $399 to list my Orlando timeshare after discussion with Melinda Hofferbert, assuring me that my property would be marketed aggressively in the near future to several groups of potential buyers (Melinda represented herself to be one of the owners, this was also represented to me by Bill Jefferson on May 12, 2009, Bill represented himself on that date to be the manager in charge of the office). To date I have not received a single reponse to my property listing in nearly 10 months time. I have also received no response to multiple phone messages and emails to Melinda.
It would be my strong recommendation to anyone desiring to sell their timeshare that they avoid doing business with Escape to Paradise, I believe you will be wasting your money with no service rendered in return.
I plan to file additional complaints with the Attorney General of California, the Newport Beach Better Business Bureau, Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, and other internet complaint websites. I suggest to anyone else that has received unsatisfactory service from Escape to Paradise that they do the same.
