Domain broker, Rob Sequin, just announced his company helped acquire Cambridge.com on behalf of a client who intends to develop a local portal with information about Cambridge, Massachusetts. The domain name, which was originally registered in 1992, was purchased for an undisclosed sum.
In addition to the acquisition of Cambridge.com, Sequin also helped acquire a second Massachusetts geodomain name, which was not disclosed in the news release.
The purchaser of these two geodomain names is Doug Tanger, a noted real estate developer from Massachusetts who previously operated a number of radio stations. Additionally, Tanger is said to have experience with startups, and as I’ve learned with my own geodomain development, each project is just like a startup that requires quite a bit of research and funding.
Congratulations to Rob Sequin (who is on my list of recommended domain consultants), and I wish all the best to Tanger on his new geodomain startups.
*** Update ***
I just learned the second domain name that was acquired was Brookline.com, which is another stellar domain name. Brookline, Massachusetts is a great town with high value homes and a high amount of disposable income.
This was a wonderful acquisition and congratulations to the broker.
Been to Cambridge a few times and my family has a house there. A lot of excitement in city and very wealthy area. All the specs are great with this IMO.
After previously on a number of occasions trying to purchase this domain can tell you that it wasn’t going cheap.
