I just wanted to say that i was very skeptical about choosing A1 Marketing to market my timeshare. To my surprise they did exactly what they told me they were going to do. The sale representative really helped me through all the steps, I'm really glad i chose to go with A1. I have recommended them to all my friends and i recommend it to you if you read this. Great company with great people working for it.
This is a complaint against A1 Marketing Unlimited (Vacation Resale).
We were contacted (stocked) by a Joseph Schuler representing himself as employee of the A1 Marketing Unlimited. He presented his company A1 as an innovative marketing solution to market timeshares for sale or rent worldwide. He convinced us to go in a contract with the company to sale our Marriott Hawaii timeshare. He had all details about our timeshare property prior to our conversation.
He promised that he has a customer ready to pay cash for our timeshare. A1 Marketing Unlimited charged us $699.00 upfront for the services. After the charge was cleared he disappeared. Multiple times we tried to contact the company on the phone and it looks like Mr. Schuler together with the rest of the company was bombed off the surface of the Earth.
This is absolutely unacceptable behavior for a business. We would like this issue to be resolved and our money refunded back.
I own a timeshare owner in Branson MO. I had an agent by the name of Bill Hillis call me and give me his whole speech on what him and his company could do for me. I denied him and told him that I wasn't going to waste my hard earned money on someone over the phone that I didn't know. A few days went by and Bill called me again and I ignored his phone calls and finally I spoke with my husband about the company and what they could 'supposedly' do for us. I had my husband call Mr. Hillis back and speak with him... if Mr. Hillis could win over my husband (which is no easy task) then he could have our business. After a 1hr 30min conversation with Mr. Hillis my husband got off the phone with him and started to tell me about the entire program and what he thought about it. As I dug a little further I found out that they did have an excellent rating with the BBB and anytime that I called I always got a reply back within a few hours. Finally after a month and a half of playing phone tag and 2nd guessing I finally went with A1 and I have no regrets. My property has been rented out 2 seperate times... I'm still waiting on someone to purchase the property from us. However, it's amazing what little time and a lot of faith can do for you. THANK you A1 and Mr. Hillis for putting my property on the market and putting money in my husband and I's pocket.
We were promised by a member of A1 that he would have our timeshare sold within 90 days. He told us how to get a refund from the company we were using that we had no success with. He emphesized that he has a license to sell and A1 Marketing is an excellent company to deal with. This man kept in touch with us constantly as we were waiting for our refuns from the other company to send the money to A1. Then all contact stopped except for a monthly form letter stating they are doing everything they possibly can to sell our timeshare. The agent's phone numbers do not work any more and any contact with the company gives us another form letter that they are doing everything possible. We were assured of the 90 dasy sale maybe not that lonf mentioned the agent. this was September 2010 and this writing is April 2011. How do these companies be allowed to stay in buisiness?

I own a business and know how these complaint web-site work. Just meant to bash hard working people. In college I worked as a waiter and people always wait until their meal is gone and then complain. Just to try to get it for free. As a business owner I can assure you reading complaints on businesses on the internet is a waist of time. The competition can make untrue complaints, a disgruntled employee or past employee can make false complaints. And as a business it can do little to fix it once it is on the internet. A1 marketing is a legitimate company. I am happy with them. If you have a complaint take it up with them. They can't fix it if they don't know about it and you only post it online. Otherwise if you are reading this web-site to "check up on them" assume all complaints are made by people wanting a free meal, competitor, or disgruntled past employee. Any concern or problem I have experienced with A1 Marketing has been handled appropriatley and I am happy with their services. Thanks for reading.
We were contacted several years ago by a sales agent of A1 Marketing, Patti Payne, wanting to sell our timeshare. They claimed to have a buyer ready to pay a decent price. Like fools we said okay and shelled out several hundred dollars for an ad and "sales services". This past Sunday we were called by a third party who "had a client with an offer", an acceptable one. He needed to contact our agent, Patti Payne, at A1 to set up the deal. Again we were fools and and sent more money to close the deal. We are now out our money and no sale. I've concluded it has all been a scam. Be smarter than we were and steer clear of this company or anyone claiming to be one of their agents.
