If you would like to hand the management of the sales over to a professional there are timeshare reselling companies who will do this for you, for a standard price.
Talk Your Way Out Of It
Timeshare companies are avidly concerned about their reputation. A timeshare company that hopes to stay in business for a long time will no doubt be open to at least talking through the situation with their customers.
