‘When my wife and I first considered buying a timeshare we were close to making a big mistake buying at retail price and paying off a huge loan over 20 years. Luckily we were able to avoid it and ended up learning about the resale market and how it could end up saving us a lot over the long run. After hearing about Smugglers Notch and researching about it from other owners we decided to take the big step and find an owner. We knew our budget and knew what type of unit we hoped to find. Luckily we ended up with a patient sales rep, Laura Fagan. Patient because we asked a hundred questions over dozens of emails and phone calls; because she visited units and took pictures, scanned and sent layouts, and more. She didn’t change her attitude when we backed out of one deal but kept helping us along the way. Finally after dozens of offers we found a seller willing to part with a unit at a price we could afford and we love it! I was nervous to find out Smuggs was not offering this service anymore but grateful to hear someone of Laura’s caliber was taking on that role on her own. And I am confident if she treats all her clients like she did us, she’ll have a successful business. ‘
‘Jodie Peck is a fantastic real estate agent and we recommend her highly. She takes the time to understand your needs as a family and puts together the best fit to meet those needs. We have purchased two separate timeshares at Smuggs through Jodie and she knows the properties really well. One was new and one was a resale. Both times went great and we still own and use both each year.’

‘As a longtime Smugglers’ Club Ownership owner, I highly recommend Laura Fagan and wish her much success in her new venture. Laura was a salesassociate when I purchased my timeshare at Smugglers’ and was always highly regarded my both her peers and the families she sold to. She is known for going the extra mile for her customers, being thorough in the information she provides and answering all questions both directly and honestly. I do not hesitate to recommend her services for anyone considering purchasing or selling a timeshare at Smugglers’ Notch Resort.’

“Laura Fagan is an upstanding, reputable Real Estate agent who works in the best interest of all of her clients.
She takes the time to get to know her customers and their needs so that she can find the unique property that suits the individual.
I have bought and sold homes through Laura because of her expertise regarding the Smuggler’s Notch Resort and I will continue to rely on her for my Vermont real estate transactions!’
‘We first met Laura in August, 1997 when she was our sales rep in purchasing a one bedroom unit in Mountain Laurels. Then in August 2000, she helped us upgrade to a two bedroom unit in Aspens.
In both instances, Laura was very professional in her approach, with no pressure to make any decisions regarding buying into Smugglers Notch Resort.
If we saw her during our stays at Smuggs, she would go out of her way to talk to us. She was always available to answer any questions that we had.
I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone who is thinking about buying a timeshare at Smugglers Notch.’
‘With your expertise, experience, and love of Smuggs, you should have a successful venture. The sense of community and ownership held by deeded property owners is part of what makes Smuggs unique and your new business will be so very helpful to maintain it. I wish you much success and will certainly keep you in mind in the unlikely event that we should decide to sell and in the more likely event that friends and relatives decide to buy.
Frank and I really enjoyed your low key and honest approach with our original purchase and the upgrades we have made.’
All the best,
‘I think I may be the first Smuggs Owner to benefit from the rental expertise of Laura Fagan’s new Vermont TimeShare Brokerage. As some of you may know we recently moved to Singapore so summer at Smuggs is now out of the question. This is the fifth time our family has moved across the world but still there were a few things on my To Do List (such as selling our UK home, moving schools for our children and obtaining a new home in Asia) so it was a great relief to have Laura and her team on side to help with the rental of our Home Week. I have never met Laura but trusted the kind words and good wishes expressed to her on this Board. It is good to be helped by one who not only commands respect from other Smuggs owners but who has an obvious affection for the Smuggs Community. I appreciated her steady, professional approach, giving me just the right amount of information and promising (not ‘great riches and FAST’) but that she would do her very best for us. I wish her every success in her new endeavors (and in particular selling our Tamaracks unit)!’
Well done and many thx, Laura!
