Media Options “completed well into the 8-figures in domain name sales in August”

How has the Summer been in terms of domain name sales for you? If you’re Andrew Rosener or on the Media Options team, it sounds like it has been a pretty hot Summer. The company “completed well into the 8-figures in domain name sales in August,” according to its CEO Andrew Rosener:

Andrew did not share any of the sales his domain brokerage closed, but I am pretty sure one was recently discovered by George Kirikos last week: is now registered under Whois privacy at MarkMonitor. The domain name does not yet resolve, so the buyer is unknown at this point in time. I assume this was a very large deal, but Andrew wouldn’t share the sale (or asking) price when I asked him about it.

Kudos to Andrew and his Media Options team on having a great August. Hopefully their solid run continues throughout the Fall.
