    Noticed this on Facebook today, seems to have brokered a 300k+ domain sale.

    Good to see some Australians listed among the best brokers in the world.

    Nice work mate.

    The price seems cheap for a top end .com and this from 2012. Was full payment received: We were also contacted this week by parties involved in a $528,000 transaction involving Accommodation.com and Accommodation.co.uk. The deal involved a five-year payment plan, so we can't chart the domains as we need to see full payment made and domains transferred before we can consider a sale complete. Still, this is a notable deal involving two solid domains. Buyer Roland B. Bleyer, who is planning to build new sites on the names, told us he valued the .com at $440,000 and the .co.uk version at $88,000.

    Thanks Horshack. This is very much an Commonwealth term. Sounds better to Australian eyes than it is in my view. Looks like a very big loss for the seller (200k after commissions?), but that is part of the game. I lose money on about 1/3 of everything I sell.

    I wonder also what happened with the payment plan as that wouldn't have ended for another 3 years.

    I hear what you are saying about the attraction to Australian eyes of this domain. Maybe the sale paid out the balance of what was owing from the original purchase plan.

    Just a quick note to say that James Wester has once again negotiated a tasty little bulk sale of some off OMG's domains from initial enquiry to closing out the sale in a little over 3 hours - nice work!
