When I received my daily DomainTools alerts, I was alerted to a Whois record change for QE.com. Knowing that Media Options‘ Andrew Rosener is always apprised of the LL.com domain market, I reached out to him to see if he knows anything about it. Not surprisingly, Media Options was involved in the transaction.
According to Andrew, QE.com was recently sold. The domain name was co-brokered by Media Options and eNaming.com, the domain brokerage founded earlier this year by Tracy Fogarty. I am told the sale price for QE.com was just over half a million dollars at $554,000. The domain name is now registered under privacy, so I am unsure of who bought it.
Most recently on July 7, QE.com had been offered for sale in the Media Options newsletter for $600,000. The domain name has been listed for sale a few times this year by different brokers. I also saw that the domain name made appearances in auctions in 2009 and 2012. I am not sure if the domain name has changed hands during this time, but I searched Namebio, and I did not see a public sales record for QE.com.
It is interesting to see two successful domain brokers working together to get a deal done. I don’t have the details on how Andrew and Tracy teamed up, but it’s nice to see this type of deal happening. Commenting on the co-brokered deal, Andrew Rosener told me, “it was a pleasure working with Tracy to get the deal done!” In a separate email, Tracy told me, “I truly enjoyed co-brokering the deal with Andrew. Even though we have different companies, working as a Team making the deal happen ended in the perfect result.. Happy Seller, Happy Buyer.”
