Our 25th Anniversary Celebration…
This year, we celebrate our 25th anniversary as Europe’s oldest timeshare reseller!
1992 saw our founding by John Hepplewhite (sadly now deceased and much-missed) and Maria Mills-Farinas, to this day still our Managing Director. We may have had a humble beginning as Travel and Leisure Advisory Services, but have since grown exponentially. Consequently, we’re proud to say that we’re known and trusted throughout the timeshare resale and pre-owned timeshare industry.
Because of this, we knew that a big celebration to recognise our achievements was in order. We couldn’t put it better than our MD Maria Mills-Farinas. “While we have company outings each year around Christmas, all agreed that this year’s celebration should be something really special. 25 years is a big milestone for us, and one that we didn’t want to pass unrecognised.”
Our team headed to Covent Garden’s Circus venue (a restaurant and bar with a circus theme). They dressed up, enjoyed a pan-Asian meal, and some very special entertainment. This included trapeze artists and tabletop contortionists where we sat on the prestigious stage table. And finally, we shared our 25 years’ worth of collective experience helping our clients sell their timeshare weeks and points.
What a Way to Celebrate!
“It was a great opportunity for everyone to get together, dress up, have some fun, and celebrate our 25th anniversary in business,” says our Conveyancing Manager John Pearce. “Fancy dress was an entry requirement of the venue. Our staff therefore went all-out to make it a memorable night—even the Managing Directors!”
“We are a company that has a traditional way of doing things,” said Operations Manager Sarah Bond. “However, as you will see from the photos, our staff can also let their hair down.”
Over the years, the number of clients we have helped has reached into the thousands. We have multilingual staff, which means we are able to help people from all over the world! And of course, our Safe Hands Guarantee means that all sale monies are safe with independent trustees for the duration of the sale.
“We’ve been in business this long—in an industry that has its fair share of turbulence—because we put our clients first,” Sarah continues. “Our 25th anniversary celebration was our way of remembering where we started, how far we’ve come, and looking ahead as a team to the next twenty-five!” To see what our digital marketing agency has to say about us, read their kind review of our 25 years here.
