DVC Resale Market Adds Nearly 50 Years of Direct DVC Experience to the Team
Despite the challenges the year 2020 has brought the world and the travel industry specifically, DVC Resale Market (DVCRM) continued a steady path of growth and in the second half of the year, significant growth. With that being said, the need to add new Team Members was apparent.
At DVCRM, we feel humbled and honored to be able to welcome not just one, but two All-Time Perennial DVC Performers to the team. Linda Smit and Randy Cook bring nearly 50 years of combined direct DVC experience and their combined total sales numbers from Disney Vacation Club is just shy of 200 million. This now brings the overall DVC Resale Market Team to over 150 years of combined direct DVC experience with over 850 million in combined DVC sales, made up of 16 former DVC Cast Members, including 13 former DVC Guides.
