Boulevards Sells in “Seven Figure” Deal

I just received a phone call from Dan Pulcrano, CEO of Boulevards New Media Inc. , and he was happy to share the news that his company sold in a “seven figure transaction.” The buyer is Denver businessman Peter Niederman, CEO of Kentwood Real Estate, and I was able to confirm the deal with him over the phone. Niederman also  recently bought and he also owns and operates

The exact terms and financial value of the deal are subject to a non disclosure agreement, but Boulevards will continue to manage the property on behalf of the buyer. Prior to the deal, Neiderman had been the exclusive real estate partner on Niederman’s company did $1.1 billion in residential real estate transactions last year and is on target for between $1.3-$1.4 billion this year.

Boulevards bought the domain name in 1996 for $6,250 as part of what is believed to be the domain name industry’s first significant portfolio purchase. Boulevards is currently the largest owner and operator of top tier US city names with properties that include,,,,,,,,, and others.

After speaking with both the buyer and seller, it is very clear that this transaction is a win/win for both parties. Owning will certainly benefit Niederman and his agents, and Pulcrano was able to sell the domain name for a considerable amount of money.

  1. Congrats to the buyer and he got his dream domain name now! He gets it. The end user. He will be profitable behind with his realestate company. His internet ventures.

    He should get the “get it award” for 2012. Last year was,

    Now this year goes to Peter and!

    Job well done! Congrats Peter.

  2. What a nice deal on a world class domain. I’ve held Dan’s portfolio in high regard for many years with all those great cities. I sold to Peter Niederman about 3 years ago which looks to be parked at this time. He sure seems to be wrapping up Denver with his most recent .com purchase.

  3. Interesting that doesn’t rank in the top 50 results for “denver” or “denver real estate” — wonder if it got hit by a penalty.

  4. @ Scott

    Interestingly, does rank #1 for the term. Also interestingly, I understand that real estate leads from convert well for Mr. Niederman.

  5. @ Elliot

    Yep, I see ranks #1 or first page for many related RE terms (as it should)

    But not ranking anywhere in the top 50 results in Google for the main term “Denver” likely means Google hit it with some kind of penalty — probably during Panda or Penguin.

    You can see here the site used to rank for many more phrases at the beginning of the year, then dropped off.

    Obviously it must convert for many long-tail keywords or Peter wouldn’t have made the 7 figure transaction.

  6. Sure is a solid type-in. Wouldn’t matter much if the domain is not ranked in the top searches. You an easily get ranked for various keywords that hold extreme value.

    The best leads are long tail searches that are exact match. You can rank on page #5 for the generic, but convert on related keywords that deliver the bulk of the traffic. is a great domain. BTW, Denver is a nice city. My brother and his family live out there. Visited this past April for three days. Good job opportunities. Definitely a booming area.

    Great domain. Better than the mediocre domains some domain companies attempt to pass off as quality. Congrats to both parties.
