Derek and Marissa are currently working as guides with DVC Resale Market. Like all of the other guides at DVC Resale Market, they were once direct guides. Derek and Marissa recap their 10+ years of friendship on the show and provide a great insight into working for DVC, working on the cruise ships. A lot of members prefer buying DVC on the cruises. There’s quite a bit of buzz in the DVC community that the cruise ships offer better discounts. In this episode, we take a quick trip backstage and talk with two former guides as they recap their history with DVC, Disney Cruise Line and their transition to DVC Resale Market.

I recently purchased a contract from Marissa. It had taken a while to convince my husband that we needed more points. When I did, it was because of My DVC Points that I decided to use Marissa. I had listened when she was on the show and liked her personality. (Splurge on Bungalows is a life goal for me). I emailed her on a Thursday evening at 8:57 pm. CST I was extremely surprised to get a response in less than 10 mins. I am the type of person who does a ton of independent research on a product before I invest my money into something. I already knew what I wanted and how much I was willing to spend. Some could even classify me as ‘picky’. LOL. I told Marissa the very specific parameters that I wanted and it wasn’t very long that she found a match. She found that match in 3 days. She didn’t try to sell me on something that I wasn’t interested in. She didn’t try to tempt me to purchase a higher point contract or a higher cost per point contract. I truly appreciate that. She was very helpful and answered all my questions. She even reached out to say congrats once everything was finalized. The next time I am able to magically convince the hubs for more points, I totally intend to use Marissa again!
