    So after Almost a year of trying different emails. To the person whom owns a name I'm trying to buy/add to my portfolio. I finally got the proper email address as this person is in corporate america.

    They own 89 plus domains around their field and name and random "fyi" names. They are ALL parked aside for the few I haven't checked with cash parking.

    I finally got a short response today

    " Hi Robert thanks for your email , Im not interested in selling".


    What are my options here?

    .I made no cash offer , simply said I'd like to purchase, the name is from 2010 ( not used, not for sale, IF others new the name and which Niche it was in......there others that would want it as well) 2 keyword Brandable.

    Not sure if this helps
    My tracker says email (today) was opened 20x times within 3 hours and it's not until last 30 mins received the response.

    1.) Make a serious financial offer.
    2.) Move on.

    That is about it.

    Thanks I thought this would be next step..make "a offer" anyway even though they said "not interested".

    hmm I will have to come up with number that will not shoot my self in the foot should they counter or reject and yet also be able to produce.

    I have dismissed many offers as tire kickers in the same situation. In my experience serious buyers make serious offers.

    Most anything is for sale, for the right price. If it is a domain you want that bad, make a strong offer.

    The guy who owned Crypto said the same until he got a offer he couldn't say no to - The same may be true here and he probably isn't interested in selling to a reseller, so your chances are probably not good unless you give him a very nice offer.

    I have also personally ran into the exact same situation many times, where you can overcome "not interested" with a strong offer.

    I see both your points now which is basically the same point. Looks like I will have to put up a bit more than planned. Would be really great to have a sale or 2 in the next few weeks, as I currently have a limit on what I can spend.

    I will stay updated on this.

    Thanks again.
