I am signing a contract to broker a certain .com domain for a friend of mine that is extremely valuable (7 figure minimum). He is not a domainer, but acquired a number of wonderful (and some not so wonderful) domains over the years.

I don't have much experience in this realm, but was curious, aside from reaching out to a few particular parties first directly to see who might be interested, where can you list or promote a domain that can easily fetch 7 figures.

Thanks!!

What will the contract be like: He will sell the domain somewhere, and you will get the commission whatever the price is? ...( I made a suggestion for marketplaces a few years ago: include discount coupons which would also act as a way to track broker commissions, , noone seemed to listen, but it would make many sales happen, because everyone would try to sell someone else's domain without taking any risk. A good plan needed to avoid all possible accidents, and abuses. )

What I would do, I would list it somewhere in make offer form, and handle all negotiation in coordination with the seller, I would use his data, except email and phone and not give him the username/pw. When it looks like the sale is likely to happen, then I would swap my commission with user/pw, and also sign a contract. Any cheater would lose. (just an idea, I'm too naive in all this).

Looking forward to seeing the name (when you are ready).

If it is that strong, just putting in the 'make offer' forum (in a masked form of course) would bring a qualified broker or two out. Then you can determine the best offer they make for brokering the name.

Really good point. Thanks for that. I will absolutely do that when the time comes. My game plan is to approach the two main end users first, and after that, potential take on a partner broker.

I would caution against this. If you're hiring a broker let them make the approaches.
