Getting to Know the Premier Timeshare Resale Team

One of the fun things about starting any new job is getting to know the people you’re working with on a regular basis. When we were discussing possible blog topics and the idea came up to interview our Premier Timeshare Resale team members, I was excited to get started.
 
So, whether you’re familiar with our company or not, you can read on to learn a little bit more about the people behind the name, Premier Timeshare Resale. Beginning with Premier Timeshare Resale Owner/President and an Associate Broker with RE/MAX AssociatesKelly Marshall.
  Kelly Marshall - family  

Why/how did you start working with timeshares?

Some might say it was by accident. With my Bachelor’s degree (from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania) in Mass Communications: Public Relations & Advertising, I took an interview for a Marketing Position with Marriott Vacation Club in Park City. I was hired in the Marketing Department for their vacation club, essentially, timeshares.  After a year, I wanted to work in Sales, but without any prior sales experience they wouldn’t even consider me for an interview.
 
Playa del Carmen, MexicoSo, I moved to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and planned to find a job where I could practice Spanish to become fluent. While there, a gentleman I met suggested that with my personality, I should sell timeshares!
 
I laughed and told him I tried, but didn’t have the required sales experience. He said, “You are a woman who speaks English, living in Mexico. You’re hired.”
 
I sold for Fisherman’s Village for 3 months. After which, I sent my sales numbers to Marriott in Park City (the same one that initially wouldn’t interview me), and they hired me! I packed my things and moved back to Park City, and worked in Sales for Marriott’s MountainSide and Summit Watch.
 
Lake Tahoe During a trip to Marriott’s Timber Lodge in Lake Tahoe, California, I noticed three different timeshare resale offices and saw the prices on the resale market.
 
With that information as my guide, I came back to Utah and got my Utah Real Estate license, left Marriott, and opened “Mountain Timeshare Resale” with Alanna Hatz in 2006.
 
Within the first year, I realized the need for a company that had licensed agents who did not charge upfront fees, not just in Utah, but worldwide.  We changed the name to Premier Timeshare Resale and started helping everyone we could.

What is a favorite place you have lived or traveled to and why?

Park City, UTIt’s difficult to pick just one! In the US, my favorite place is where I live, Park City.
 
However, I’ve really enjoyed trips to Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver, Canada. Europe is a favorite for food, art, and historic towns and cities. Thailand has some of the best beaches I have ever visited by far.  
boy in Thailand
While in Thailand, I had the opportunity to volunteer at an orphanage. That was one of the best experiences of my life. It was something I would have told you I could never do. Well, we did. I left crying every day, but somehow even though I went to give love to the little babies, I left getting more from them!
 

Lastly, what is one thing you wish people knew about timeshares that they may not know?

That they can get really good deals to stay at top notch properties.

A lot of timeshares offer a full kitchen and a great view. You are also often steps away from either the pool and the beach. 
 
This makes ALL the difference when staying with kids.
 
Our kids (who are both preschool age) love the beach, but for only 20-30 minute increments if we are lucky! I can’t imagine packing all my things up for a “day at the beach” that may only last a few minutes! The same holds true for a day on the ski slopes.
 
Convenience is key. Timeshares offer that… at better prices!
 
 

Explore the Real Mexico at the Royal Sands

Located in beautiful Cancun, Mexico, The Royal Sands Resort is in the heart of any beach lover’s paradise. There is plenty of fun in the sun and night life, which makes Cancun a top destination spot for spring breakers. The Royal Sands made Redweek.com’s Top 25 Timeshare Rental Resorts list Beach-Royal-Sands-Cancun-Mexicofor 2018 and no wonder! An all-inclusive yet family friendly resort, the Royal Sands boasts three pools and a supervised Kids Club.

But this area of Mexico is also rich in ancient history and a great place to stay and experience authentic Mexican culture. Let’s take a look at some things you can do and see to get a taste of the real Mexico.

Explore Mayan Ruins


Tulum-Royal-Sands-Cancun-MexicoThe Mayan ruins of Tulum, 80 miles south of Cancun, are the only major Mayan site to overlook the Caribbean. Containing more than 60 structures, this area was inhabited after 1200 B.C. and is considered to be one of the most important ceremonial centers to the Mayan people. The location on the Caribbean Sea made Tulum a major Mayan trade center. Be sure to check out El Castillo, a pyramid perched atop a 40 foot cliff, thought to be a lighthouse to guide local seafarers.


Explore an Eco-archaeological Park


Xcaret-Royal-Sands-Cancun-MexicoWhile definitely for the tourists, a great way to learn about local culture and heritage is at a theme park! At Xcaret you can experience pre-Hispanic dances, visit archaeological sites, take river tours, and feast on authentic Mexican cuisine. There is snorkeling, as well as a “meet the dolphins” attraction. Stop by the Hacienda Henequenera, a 19th century mansion where you can learn about machinery used for henequen (a variety of agave). The Hacienda Henequenera is also at the doorstep of the Museum of Mexican Folk Art, a place to enjoy hand crafted traditional Mexican art.

These are just a couple of ways to explore Mexico and learn more about its Mayan roots. Buying a timeshare in Cancun is a great way to not only enjoy the beaches every year, but to immerse yourself in the local scene as well. Premier Timeshare Resale and our knowledgeable agents can help you find the Cancun vacation ownership that is right for you. Contact us to get started today!
