This Broker outfit, based in Mallorca, Spain, seem to have found another Diamond Resorts member who's willing to buy my newly converted 3,000 points (from 1 week at Los Abrigados, Arizona, with Premiere Vacation Club - ILX) for very good money. Other brokers say they can't give my points away.
Does anyone have experience of/ advice on First Options?

There is a simple rule of thumb here: NEVER pay an upfront fee to sell or rent your timeshare - NO MATTER WHAT THEY CALL IT!

REPUTABLE brokers charge a fee AFTER the sale, out of the PROCEEDS.

Anyone that wants you to pay a large upfront fee - ONLY wants your monry.
