    I just closed on a purchase at WKORV, but the title company tells me it may be 4 weeks before Vistana shows me as the owner. In the meantime, is there any way I can reserve a unit for 2019? How do I do that? TIA.

    You just need to get the previous owner to make a reservation for you

    Also, I sent paperwork to Vistanna on 13 July and received access to my unit on August 6th.

    I asked the agent to ask the seller to do so during escrow, but silence and now the sale has closed.

    That was yours and the agent's mistake. It should have been in writing and part of the purchase agreement.

    We actually did it during the sales process......and the actual reservation was made just before transfer.

    I had a very good seller and a very good agent (Time to Share Realty; Melissa).

    Sorry for your luck. You can still make an SO reservation at 8 mos!
