Hi, I’m Karen
My childhood was spent in the San Francisco Bay Area. Born in San Mateo, I lived in various cities while growing up, such as San Mateo CA, Atherton CA, and Sunnyvale CA. With no college education, equipped only with street smarts and a healthy conscience, I moved to beautiful South Lake Tahoe in 1981. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my timeshares, to places such as Hawaii, Las Vegas, Mexico, the southern California Coast, and more. I love yoga, hiking, and bike riding. I love spending time with friends, and God has blessed me with many. Having been a California girl most of my life, I now live near our new office, in the beautiful city of La Quinta, CA, at the base of the Santa Rosa mountains, with my 4-pound Maltese dog, named K.J. (stands for Karen’s Joy!).
The Ridge Tahoe is where I started working in the timeshare industry, in 1985. Having worked in various capacities for timeshare developers, I grew to understand my ultimate calling in the business, which is the timeshare resale sector of the marketplace. In February 1996, Preferred Timeshare Resales opened its doors. We remained established in the Lake Tahoe area until 2015, when we condensed our 2 offices into one. We relocated our Tahoe office to our La Quinta office location, in the charming ‘Old Town’ area. We’re still very active in the Lake Tahoe timeshare market, but have expanded our ambitions to offering our services worldwide, specializing in mostly hotel-brand timeshare resales, such as Marriott, Westin, Hyatt, and Hilton timeshare resorts.
Honesty, integrity, respect, and quality delivery of services are typical characteristics of the beginnings of many companies, but in a field of unscrupulous actors in the timeshare industry, these characteristics were rare and sorely needed. I fell in love with the ability to deliver a results-driven business model to those who had gotten no results in the past. Timeshare Buyers are equally as enthusiastic about Preferred Timeshare Resales, as they enjoy quality representation throughout the sale process.
Put our many years of experience to work for you!
