Beginning with an idea while studying as an undergraduate student at the University of Tampa, president and CEO Wesley Kogelman decided in 2000 to create an online marketplace where timeshare owners could easily connect with buyers and renters online to facilitate transactions.

Coinciding with the rapid impact Google had on the growth of online search, Wes became a pioneer in the online timeshare resale industry, having begun his business prior to all of his current major competitors. It is the experience over the past 15 years which has translated into the success the company has enjoyed.

“We saw early on the effect Google was having on the internet and how search would change the exchange of information,” Kogelman said. “There was a pent-up market of timeshare sellers and buyers who had no way to interact, except by traditional newspapers or local real estate offices, and the internet became the great equalizer where owners could transact directly with buyers and renters.”

“Timeshare resales has evolved beyond the corner real estate shop-front into a major driver of the overall timeshare industry. A study by the American Resort Development Association estimated that nearly one-third of all timeshare sales take place through the resale market, which legitimizes timeshare resales as an important sector of the business,” added Kogelman.

This past year has seen significant progress for, with the launch of the newly designed website in Q4 which incorporated dynamic technology, allowing the site to be properly displayed on any device whether it is mobile, desktop or laptop. The company also now offers resale financing options for timeshare buyers who live in the U.S. or Canada.

The company became the only timeshare resale company to be endorsed by the world’s two most influential, independent timeshare owners associations, the National Timeshare Owners Association and U.K.-based TATOC, the Timeshare Association. In addition, Wes Kogelman became a coveted ARDA Trustee member, was elected to the Board of Directors of the Canadian Resort Development Association and invited onto the NTOA Advisory Board.

With over $181 million in confirmed, documented buyer and rental offers generated for advertisers over the past two years alone, the online platform has proven its effectiveness over the last 15 years.

“Prior to the launch of our new mobile site, a consumer would have to access a regular website on their mobile device and zoom, or pinch, or swipe at the screen until they got a screen they could actually read. Then they would hope they could use the fields and click onto the links, which was more guesswork than anything else.”

“With our new site, a buyer can go straight to our site from any device, clearly see the fields and easily access the information to find the exact timeshare they are looking for. And with the significant savings available on the resale market, this is a game-changer for the industry,” said Kogelman.

The trend toward increased mobile device use in e-commerce is unmistakable. According to the latest statistics from marketing analytics firm Custora, over one-third of visits to e-commerce sites now come from mobile devices, up from just three percent in 2010.

Mobile users will also be able to access the new Market Analysis tool to gauge the average asking price for a particular timeshare in the inventory. By entering in a resort name and other primary information, such as number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a timeshare owner can find out the average asking price through an automated service in a matter of seconds.

These strategies led to an increase of 68 percent in the number of offers placed onto ads from prospective buyers during the second quarter compared to the same timeframe in 2013, totaling 5,200 offers. Renters seeking deals placed 2,086 offers on advertised rental properties, an increase of 41 percent from last year.

The increased activity shows that buyers and renters are still looking for quality vacation products in the midst of the summer holiday season according to CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“Our activity has been very robust and continues to demonstrate that consumers are actively seeking vacation ownership products,” said Kogelman. “For years, all we heard from the industry was that timeshare was not a sought product, but our numbers contradict that thinking.”

“The increased offer numbers are also tracking well with the overall industry, which just reported an 11 percent increase in sales volume for 2013 according to ARDA. We’ve always believed that the better the new sales volume is, the better we’ll be since those owners will eventually look to resell their products.”

Consumers are visiting the website in significant numbers, with just over 23,000 unique visitors per week coming to the site looking for information. With such a considerable amount of online traffic, plans are in the works to revamp the website and introduce new features to make it even easier to buy and rent online.
