A Reason to Keep Deals Private

I don’t really share the domain names I sell or sales prices of domain names. I have publicly shared a handful over the last 10+ years, but my strong preference is to keep my sales and sale prices private.

I think I make it pretty clear on my business contact page that I am not a domain broker: “Top Notch Domains, LLC is not a domain broker and does not offer private domain consulting services.” I have enough domain names to sell in my own portfolio that it does not make sense for me to spend time selling domain names owned by other people.
