I would expect a very small minority of prospects that pass through the HGV sales rooms have ever heard of Apollo Group, let alone their interest in acquiring HGV. I suspect the words "Apollo" and "Diamond" are rarely spoken in HGV presentations unless the prospect asks.
I suspect similar might be true for MVC/Vistana, but given Marriott International's acquisition of the Westin/Sheraton brands and Bonvoy, the fact that there are now linkages between all of those brands is more common knowledge. Also, MVC and VSE sales reps have been spinning the merger in sales presentations for a while, and there has been some email communications with owners about that affiliation.
True. On a positive note, all this FUD makes for easy "get out of jail free" cards from presentations. We have two coming up (1 HGV and 1 MVC) and we'll just present those as "too much uncertainty to make such a large purchase" as the excuse.
I am so happy we bought resale. Can't lose much if you didn't pay much in the first place.
I am going to locked this thread because I think that it is getting too long and un-wieldy. Lets start a new thread when the HGV financial report or other HGV news is made. I will reference this thread as appropriate there.
