BE SAFE, and save yourself some time, money and heart ache. Ask them the two questions below right away, and if the answer is "NO" to both questions, run the other direction! They could be a snake in the grass trying to steal your hard-earned money.
Question #1: Are you a licensed brokerage? If "YES," ask for their license number, then go verify it with the Real Estate Department of the state. If they are legitimately licensed, that's great, but there is still no need to pay up front fees to list your timeshare. Our company proudly never has.

Continuing on, if the answer to Question #1 was "NO," then ask Question #2, which is: Do your buyer's have direct contact with your sellers? If this is a "YES" answer and they are not licensed, well then, they are within legal bounds. If this is another "NO" answer then ask yourself, why wouldn't I be able to deal directly with the seller?
It raises a big red flag that the company probably intends to make offers to the sellers. Making real estate offers to sellers on behalf of buyers requires a real estate license, and with good reason. There is no end of the problems which can ensure when dealing with a non-licensed entity which has no requirement of full disclosure and none of the recourse you would have when having a licensed real estate brokerage handle the sale from start to finish.
