In 1999, I was recovering from a car accident, and struggling to keep up with my workload running the desk of an escrow company owner, closing residential and refinance escrows in Carlsbad CA when I got a call from Larry Hayden of Timeshare Resales Worldwide, asking me if I was interested in learning how to close timeshare escrows, as his in-house escrow officer was retiring. I spent the next year sitting at a desk next to Larry listening to him share his knowledge with timeshare Buyers and sellers, as he taught me how to deal with resort personnel, with their varied requirements for closing escrow on timeshare sales. We opened a second office, and I was able to pass this knowledge along to an assistant, and later my husband who joined me as an intern and has been my business partner ever since.
Larry Hayden is the father of timeshare on the Internet. His company is America’s oldest online licensed timeshare brokerage. Before people had even heard of the Internet Larry was studying how to capitalize on it to market timeshare, the perfect Internet product to market to a worldwide audience.
Larry graduated with high scholastic honors and a degree in business with a Real Estate major, from the University of Arizona in 1969. He has been licensed in Real Estate ever since, and enjoys specializing in timeshare. As founder of Timeshare Resales Worldwide, Larry Hayden has been a Timeshare Industry Leader and licensed real estate agent since 1969. As a publisher of many timeshare articles including the Timeshare Answers Guide ™, Ten Reasons Timeshare Makes Sense, and many more. He is honored to be a leader in the timeshare business, revolutionizing the timeshare industry with his strict No Upfront Fee policy.
Larry sold timeshare at many of the largest and most successful California resorts, and completed R.C.I’s Professional Advantage® course for timeshare trainers, at RCI headquarters in Indianapolis. He specializes in luxury hotel branded timeshare such as Hilton, Marriott, Four Seasons, Hyatt and Starwood. He worked in sales at Grand Pacific Resorts in Carlsbad, CA and has completed many resales at the Grand Pacific Resorts, such as the Carlsbad Inn, Carlsbad Seapointe, Grand Pacific Palisades, Tamarack Beach Resort and Grand Pacific Hilton Marbrisa in Carlsbad, CA, Southern California Beach Club in Oceanside, CA, The Winners Circle and Wavecrest in Del Mar, CA, Laguna Surf, Laguna, CA, the San Clemente Inn, San Clemente, CA, Laguna Shores, Laguna, CA, and many more. If you can think of any particular timeshare location worldwide, Larry has probably sold and closed it.
As a result of plain hard work coupled with sound intuition Larry’s business has blossomed from a variety of sources. I personally have witnessed Larry going to any lengths many times over to ensure client 100% satisfaction, and mentoring numerous staff and real estate agents as they got started in the specialty sector of timeshare. Larry is an enthusiastic owner of several timeshares and an interview with him can be seen on Timeshare Talk, Europe’s largest timeshare forum, as published in PR Web.
Additionally, Larry launched the worldwide Timeshare M.L.S. which gives access to licensed real estate agents worldwide to sell his company’s listings. He is a charter member of the LTRBA Licensed Timeshare Resale Broker’s Association, and Redweek MLS.
Timeshare Resales Worldwide was born with the simple goal and pledge of professional service for a fair fee only at close of escrow. Happily, Larry and his staff are accomplishing that goal daily, with an outstanding successful track record of professionally completed sales, as attested by multiple clients as shown on his web site.
