About Rick Latona:

Rick Latona Auctions was founded as a natural extension to to pursue other avenues in the domain marketplace to sell domain names.   When asked why he made the decision to launch now, Rick said, “I had been considering the idea for years.   When I realized that I was one of the largest individual resellers and brokers of domains it really became an issue of timing.   Rick Schwartz created that timing for us…I understand what names people want and what prices will get them to bite. It’ll be more than interesting to see how this winning formula will perform in a live format.”
