Founded by one of the pioneers of the timeshare cancellation industry, Wesley Financial Group, LLC, with its premier services helps people get rid of timeshares


For many, buying a timeshare can turn into a nightmare. The idea sold might sound great, but often that is just an illusion, an idea, a false promise. The timeshare salesman will make it seem like a dream come true, and you might think that you will make money by selling it, but the truth is you will often lose money. Many timeshares will not gain value, and when you look for various options to get rid of it, you will realize that selling it is not an option for most. You stand to lose thousands, if not tens of thousands, while trying to resale timeshares.

There are various firms that can help you in timeshare cancelation, but one that stands out from the rest is Wesley Financial Group, LLC. The company is a consumer advocacy group founded in 2011. Wesley Financial Group specializes in complete timeshare cancellation and timeshare debt elimination to individuals and families that have experienced fraud, misrepresentation, and/or lies during sales presentations. Too often, consumers are pressured in to unnecessarily purchasing expensive timeshare contracts. Wesley Financial Group assists those who have ended up in seemingly helpless situations by ensuring the client is free from the timeshare burden. Wesley Financial Group is based in Franklin, Tennessee with a satellite office in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In conversation with Chuck McDowell, Founder and CEO of Wesley Financial Group, LLC

Q. The market is completely oversaturated with new timeshares. How can we resell the timeshare in this highly volatile market?

There are thousands of timeshares for sale on eBay for just a dollar because the market is so saturated with people desperate to get rid of the timeshares’ financial obligations. Some exit companies claim to be able to resell or rent timeshares. However, we have heard from hundreds of our clients who paid these companies an upfront fee and then never heard from them again. Many times when timeshare owners call in about the exit programs offered by the resorts, they are sold even more points. One client of ours went through the resort’s exit program, only to be coerced into even more timeshare points, doubling her financial obligation to them that she found out about only after she returned home. Timeshare exit through a respected and vetted company is the only real answer to safe and effective timeshare termination.

Q. Can smaller timeshare owners make use of your services? How flexible are your services?

Every client is given an individualized, tailored exit approach as every ownership experience is different. We are not the cheapest on the market when it comes to exit programs. However, that is because everything is done in-house. Our specialists are very skilled and knowledgeable about the particular resorts they work against. We have a 100% money-back guarantee if we are unable to cancel the timeshare within the client and company’s agreed-upon amount of time to obtain the cancellation. If a client is unable to pay the full-service fee for some reason, Wesley Financial Group does offer payment plans.

Q. How do you market your services?

Our marketing team is an award-winning group of eclectic individuals. They do an excellent job of reaching as many timeshare owners as possible to let owners know about Wesley Financial Group’s services should the timeshare owner need them. At Wesley Financial Group, LLC, we believe nothing is known until it is tested and proven. With that said, the most frequent response to “Can I try…” or “We could...” is, “test it.” This approach allows the marketing department to beat the expected outcomes of lead generation per medium.

Q. Do you have any new services ready to be launched?

Yes! We just opened Wesley Mutual, LLC, a sister company to Wesley Financial Group, LLC that offers final expense insurance. The company’s president, Matthew Rettick, has 30 plus years of experience behind him.

Q. What is your company’s mission statement?

Our company was named after John Wesley for his famous quote, “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.” We attribute a lot of our success to the strong foundation this quote has provided us. It is written on the walls at our offices and in our marketing pieces.
