  1. Thanks for sharing Elliot.

    I think this interview will be great exposure for the domain business, especially for those investors who have focused on real estate domains. is a rapidly growing startup in the Real Estate marketing arena and this will really help those real estate professionals learn about the importance and value of generic domain names for their business.

    Guys like Rob Grant with incredible City/ domain names have been doing a good job over the years selling those names to top agents in their respective markets, but I’m sure it has been an uphill battle trying to educate those people about the value of such names.

    I’m hoping some exposure like this helps bring us one step closer to a well educated end user.

  2. Thanks Elliot

    Rosener is a good guy.
    Had some email correspondence with him just this week.
    Sure he’ll continue to be a very successful and prominent figure in the industry.

  3. It will definitely have the advantage to get the good and unique domain name. Rosener really done a very good work.

  4. Great interview Andrew, thanks for sharing.
    Just over 3 years ago, I purchased as an end-user. I paid $45,000 and we receive an average of $125,000 from Internet lead generation “IDX”.
    We do not participate in paid search advertising (the highly competitive keyword: Denver Real Estate costs nearly $8/click), for us, everything is about organic search or direct type-in traffic as Andrew mentioned. For the keywords; Denver Real Estate, we rank page one, rank one for the top three search engines; Google, Yahoo and Bing.
    Two weeks ago, I purchased to capture “Denver Lifestyle” content and further enhance to real estate vertical. I want to control keyword search in and around Denver. The National Association of Realtors “NAR” states that upwards of 94% of all buyers and sellers start their search online before contacting a Realtor.
