Dear Partners & Business Colleges.
We are happy to announce that May
2001 we have opened our second office in Moscow, Russia,
which is now fully operational & provides the
same range of services to the Club members & timeshare
Companies & Developers, as we have been doing
since 1996 from St-Petersburg.
It became a necessity to open in Moscow
since our client database has nearly reached 8000
families , 30% of whom are the Club members living
in Moscow or in the far regions of CIA (such as mid
of Siberia, far North, Ukraine, Kazahstan ) with more
chance to visit us in Moscow as a matter of travel
By opening our Moscow office we expect a further growth
of client database & as a result the business as well
by the end of this year by 20%.
We expect that with our presence in Moscow we shall achieve
some improvement in the climate for timeshare business in
general. Thou being the only OTE member company in Russia,
no one is expecting us to go openly against the crooks that
flooded with their fake packs & resale scams our market.
The fact that we provide since 1996 free legal & usage
consultancies to the timeshare owners & purchases in
St-Petersburg gave a fruitful result. During the last two
years St-Petersburg timeshare market has witnessed only
two attempts of the resale scam invaders which failed totally
(both gone before they started) without any need to appeal
to the authorities for the help, only due to the fact that
people possessing the knowledge that we gave them don’t
trust the fake stories & with our help know where to
check the information.
For the job we do we get the total respect from the other
companies in St-Petersburg that are doing along term clean
In this respect we would like to thank all our partners
for the support in providing us with all the information
required by our Russian clients.
We also think that with having our base in Moscow we shall
have a better opportunity to influence on the introduction
of timeshare legislation in Russia, which should be aimed
at not ruining the existing business but be a turning point
for opening the timeshare resorts in Russia, which will
become the second boom of timeshare in Russia.
During the last couple of years we saw more interest with
the Russian members who lost their ownership for nonpayment
of the maintenance to be reinstated in the Club.
Having been sold in the early years of timeshare the Russian
members were not provided the appropriate information in
Russian or sometimes were totally confused. Since years
go & with more travel experience Russians started to
respect more the product & are willing to get back in
the system. This is a great sign for the industry!
We want to thank the Club Members Committees & the
Management Companies who were willing to give the second
chance to the members. Since last year we are running a
special programs with them in making this process more affective.
We are intending to double these operations with our office
in Moscow. And we shall be more then happy to work with
the other Resorts & Clubs who are willing to join us.
Special thanks to all the Developers with whom we have
been working during our 5 years & with whom we are working
now, who provide us with inexpensive inventory that makes
it possible to complete the uncompleted business left by
the run away companies & thus to get the trust of Russians
back to the industry in general & receive the happy
members on the mutually financially beneficial base. We
shall continue this business here in Moscow as well.
We are grateful to the Exchange Companies that are not
only supporting our good name but also find it important
& fruitful to do business with us.
Please accept our apologize for not approaching you personally,
but we are in a hurry to inform all our friends, partners,
& business colleges in the timeshare industry all over
the world of our expending possibilities.
With kindest regards
Of Help Line International.
