Consulting Services

Ragatz Associates is an international consulting and market research firm in the resort real estate industry. It was founded in 1974 by Dr. Richard Ragatz.
The objectives of Ragatz Associates are simple, but important. We provide every client, regardless of contract size, a professional and cost-effective product. We pride ourselves on being objective, thorough and creative. Our attention to detail and our extensive experience allow us to share meaningful and valuable insights with our clients. Our success is measured by the success our clients realize as a result of our consulting efforts. Clients represent both the private sector (from small, individually owned companies to international corporations) and the public sector (from small municipalities to national governments). The firm specializes in the shared-ownership industry, including fractional interests, private residence clubs, destination clubs, and resort timeshare. But, we also work with hotels and various forms of whole-ownership resort real estate developments
