"We are very grateful for Nicola’s assistance in releasing us from our timeshare with Diamond Resorts.

We were approached by another Company prior to Linder Myers, and were asked to pay thousands of pounds in order to obtain a release. This Company did not obtain a release and left us substantially out of pocket but still with the resort chasing us for outstanding maintenance fees. It was very a distressing and upsetting experience.

Nicola was understanding, friendly and professional. Most importantly, she managed to secure us our release and has lifted a great weight off our shoulders.

We would definitely recommend her to other people caught in a timeshare trap."
