We were in Orlando, Florida and staying with her Mom and Dad at their timeshare.
We were invited on a tour and offered dinner for four at Disney World in Cinderella’s Castle.
Little did we know that would be the most expensive dinner we would ever eat!
We bought a three-bedroom unit with a lockout for about $20,000.00.
During the next several years, we enjoyed our timeshare and spent many wonderful years together as a family. We felt truly blessed.
After our two kids grew up and left home, we stopped using the timeshare. We were banking our weeks with the exchange company, but soon the weeks were expiring due to non-use. Every Christmas we would write out a check for our annual maintenance fees and question why we were keeping something that we were not using.
Sadly, Linda’s Father Ray passed away leaving Linda’s Mom a widow and on a fixed income. Her Mom asked me to help her sell her two timeshares and we agreed this was God’s urging to sell ours as well. If you had told me I would spend the next eight years trying to sell three timeshares I would have never believed you!
I tried all the things I knew to do; I advertised them in Florida and Tennessee. No one called me offering to buy BUT two “crooks” called and offered to “help me sell” for a fee! I lost $1,100 of my hard earned money and my Mother In Law did too!
We then tried to donate them to the American Red Cross, The American Cancer Society and the United Way, and the charities said they would not accept a donation of a timeshare due to the ongoing liability of the maintenance fees. I even offered to give back my timeshare to the Orlando resort where we paid $20,000 for it for FREE…but they would NOT take it back.
Finally, In October of 2006, we attended a seminar that guaranteed to get rid of our timeshare forever…and they did! The rest is history. We have since helped literally thousands of timeshare owners free themselves from their timeshare contracts.
And we can help YOU!

WHY WE STARTED HEARTLAND TRANSFER
It is no secret to many of you reading these words that we have a long and storied history working in this business. During the past half-decade, we have been a part of some of the most successful companies in the timeshare transfer industry. Many of you have met with us in our seminars from coast to coast. You shared with us your stories of betrayal at the hands of a timeshare “crook” and then turned around and trusted us with your property. You wondered if you were doing the right thing. We did not then nor do not now take your trust lightly. The reason we started Heartland Transfer was simply to make a difference. In a day and time when so many people have been misled by unscrupulous con artists we wanted to give voice to the yearning of our hearts to treat people fairly, honestly and with professionalism. We know we can make a difference—one family at a time.
