Just curious if anyone has ever used RE/MAX Properties SW, Inc. in Orlando and/or their closing company Timeshare Resale Closing Services, Inc. in Kissimmee. I am interested in one of their resale units but trying to research both companies first.

The closing company was formed in January 2006. There is no record of the company or any of the principals as being licensed by the Florida Department of Insurance to transact real estate closings (yes timeshares are considered real estate in Florida).

There was a new law that went into effect in Florida on 10/1 that regulates who can act as an escrow agent. I would ask before I placed any money in anyones account if they are licensed by the state to perform real estate closings, hold escrow funds, maintain the proper E&O insurance, surety bonds etc.

Go a step further and ask them to send you copies of those documents. I/f they do not have them, then understand there is no one out there to protect your money.
