Dover, NH (August 9, 2010) – Jason Tremblay, CEO of SellMyTimeshareNow.com, one of the world’s largest and most respected online timeshare resale and rental marketing organizations, has recently announced the acquisition of the primary asset – as well as the customers – of Canada’s leading timeshare reseller, RapidResale.ca.
“During recent months, RapidResale founder April Cummins has become more involved in sales and marketing efforts for Canadian developers and sought a company to whom she could entrust her resale business, one that would take over the management of the existing website and the servicing of its customers,” explained Tremblay. “Due to our high level of success and national recognition, April asked if we would be willing to acquire this segment of her business to ensure a high level of continuing service for her customers.”
Added Tremblay, “The six-year-old RapidResale website is already a highly trusted, well-optimized, perfectly positioned site that ranks extremely well with Canadian search engines, such as www.Google.ca. We are excited about this acquisition since it will provide our web-based company opportunities to further expand our presence in Canada. Links on our website will lead potential renters and buyers to the Canadian site, benefiting everyone involved. Our ultimate plan is for all of our sellers’ properties to be displayed on all of our websites including RapidResale.ca.”
Jay Bade, VP of business development at SellMyTimeshareNow.com was instrumental in connecting the two companies. “As we acquire the domain name, database and website content of RapidResale.ca, we will provide their existing customers with greater exposure through our family of websites.”
Founded in 2004, RapidResale.ca is the domain name for Secondary Solutions Group, an Ontario-based Canadian timeshare resales leader with a solid reputation for success and its growth into a multi-million dollar organization. The company also provides sales and marketing solutions to developers of shared-use properties. April Cummins will continue to work with Canadian timeshare developers in the sales and marketing arena and refer them to our Vacation Property Solutions, the Resort Services Division of SellMyTimeshareNow for future resales and marketing needs.”
Commented Ross Perlmutter, President/CEO of the Canadian Resort Development Association, “With more than 180 shared ownership resorts and nearly 350,000 owners in Canada, we welcome the expanded presence of SellMyTimeshareNow. They are a leading international timeshare reseller that can potentially bring great benefits to timeshare buyers and sellers on both sides of the border.”
Founded in 2003, Sell My Timeshare NOW has grown to become the leading online secondary marketplace for timeshares on a resale basis. Each month, averaging more than 2 million pageviews, the Sell My Timeshare NOW websites deliver to timeshare owners and developers over 86,000 offers valued at $88 million for timeshare rentals and 61,000 offers valued at $338 million for timeshare resales.
