Karen Phelan
Broker/Owner
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. 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.

I’ve been working in the timeshare industry for over 12 years. I started in the industry with timeshare resales at a Palm Springs resort. I was later offered a position as Director of Operations for a new sales development. Though I learned a lot working in new sales, I chose to go back to resales with Preferred Timeshare Resales which I find to be  more rewarding, as I'm offering Buyers and Sellers alike, a safe and professional environment to complete their timeshare transactions.

Our office is not a high-pressure sales environment - In our no-pressure environment, it helps me to get to know my clients, so I can help them better.  A successful transaction requires listening to my client's needs, and there is nothing more gratifying to me than a happy client!

Being a timeshare owner myself, I give my clients the insight they need to make intelligent choices. I look forward to helping you with creating luxury, affordable timeshare vacations for you and your loved ones.

True Stories

"We had a very good experience with Preferred Timeshare Resales. We decided that our timeshare was no longer appropriate for us and had researched various options for getting rid of it. Preferred offered the best option by far. Working with Preferred was easy and the search for a buyer progressed well in an orderly and timely fashion. It is great to be rid of the timeshare obligation."

"I had a very satisfactory transaction. Everything was orderly, upfront, and well communicated. It was the second transaction I have completed with the company, and would have no hesitation to do business with them again."

"My husband and I sold our Marriott timeshare through Preferred Timeshare Resale. We spoke with an agent initially and she gave us very good information in regards to what we could expect. The info she gave us was very honest and useful in preparing us for the sale. We were contacted several months later by another agent, when she had an offer for our timeshare. Both agents were very professional and reliable. There were no upfront costs and all fees came out of the proceeds from the sale. The agents kept us informed as the sale progressed and we were very happy with the entire experience. I highly recommend Preferred Timeshare Resale for selling your timeshare."

"From our recent experience Preferred Timeshare Resales really do strive to do their very best in selling timeshares. We can recommend them to everyone wanting to get out of owning a timeshare."

"Preferred Timeshare Sales staff was knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. They afforded me the best opportunity to sell my timeshare in a timely manner at a price that was much higher than any other company that I had interviewed. All-in-all, a GREAT experience!"
