    Finding a good TS trader to buy

    New to TUG and Forum. Like what I have seen so far! Have owned Marriott weeks and points for 20+ years. Looking to buy a resale week that would be a good trader. Prefer Marriott because I'm familiar with their resorts and system but am willing to consider others. Ideas on what resorts would be...
