MANCHESTER, U.K. (March 20, 2013) — TATOC is delighted to announce that new re-sale organisation FAB Property Spain has become a TATOC affiliate.
Recently launched and with offices in Marbella, FAB Property Spain specialises in the re-sale of Marriott Vacation Club (MVC) memberships and selected luxury brands in Europe. While the company makes it clear that it is not Marriott Vacation Club, all of the company’s sales advisors have worked for Marriott and, as such, are fully trained on the product.
Together the FAB team sold over €4 million of MVC European membership in three years and was involved with the launch of Destination points. The team is now turning its attention to the re-sale market.
Managing director Tim Harris explained: “With over 25,000 owners of the Marriott Vacation Club at the company’s European resorts the FAB team identified a gap in the market for a re-sale company concentrating on the four Marriott resorts. This is especially relevant as there is no re-sales channel in Europe and they currently recommend owners find re-sales companies online. ”
The FAB offices are located directly opposite the Marriott Playa Andaluza resort and the team has enjoyed significant success since it opened. Many Marriott owners have visited the business to find what is available for sale or to ask about selling their membership. There is presentation gallery in the sales office, which fully explains how timeshare works and introduces the benefits of timeshare exchange membership.
“We are highly experienced on every aspect regarding the Marriott Vacation Club and other luxury brands and we can assist owners and potential owners make the correct choice whether they are buying or selling. We also advise owners on the best way of using their new membership, something many other re-sales companies are not able to offer as they do not have the specific product knowledge,” added Tim Harris.
Andrew Horton of Resort Fiduciary Services, which is also a TATOC affiliate, introduced the FAB team to TATOC.
“We understand the importance of working within Europe’s legislative guidelines and have passed all of our paperwork to the TATOC team for their approval. We will only work with TATOC or RDO approved timeshare re-sale brokers and companies so buyers and sellers can be assured of the highest standards at all times,” explained Harris.
Speaking about the new affiliation Harry Taylor, executive chairman of TATOC (http://www.tatoc.co.uk), said: “This is a first for us – working with a brand new re-sale company which focuses on such a specific area of the timeshare business. We were delighted that becoming a TATOC affiliate was seen as an important aspect of their business plan and on-going success.”
As affiliates of TATOC, FAB Property Spain (http://www.fabtimeshareresales.com), will adhere to the TATOC code of conduct issued in August 2011 and the re-sale code of practice. All companies wishing to affiliate to TATOC are thoroughly vetted beforehand and continually monitored. Further details of the code of conduct can be found on the Association’s website.
