Seattle, WA (May 25, 2010) — RedWeek.com, the largest timeshare marketplace, is partnering with the Timeshare Crusader, Lisa Ann Schreier, to further awareness of and education about timesharing. Schreier is the founder and director of Timeshare Insights, a consumer consulting and education organization, and the author of several timeshare books.
“The timeshare industry is complex,” says Maurice Aubrey, RedWeek president and CTO. ““As a leader in the secondary market, our goal is to ensure consumers make informed decisions, so having Lisa share her experience and knowledge with us is a welcome addition.”
With the help of Schreier, RedWeek established a dedicated Ask the Timeshare Crusader page on the site, and runs a standing Timeshare Crusader column in their monthly newsletter which reaches more than 500,000 timeshare owners and travelers worldwide. In addition, RedWeek has created an Ask the Timeshare Crusader topic on their forums pages for users to interact directly with Lisa.
“I’m delighted to work with RedWeek.com on this important initiative. Today, more than ever, consumers need to become more educated about timeshare so that they can make wise vacation and financial choices,” say Schreier. “I’m looking forward to enhancing this partnership, which I’m confident will go a long way to bringing about positive change to the timeshare industry and consumers everywhere.”
The RedWeek.com by-owner model allows timeshare owners to advertise their unused weeks for rent and resale, and individuals contact them directly to arrange a transaction. The site offers a comprehensive resources section with valuable information for owners, buyers and travelers. Resource topics include: timeshare pros and cons, determining whether timeshare ownership works for your lifestyle, and timeshare purchase options, the differences between buying a timeshare resale vs. buying directly from a developer.
