Are there people to hire to ACTIVELY sell your domain?

Just a question because I can't seem to find the answer.

Are there people or is there a company that actively markets valuable domains to companies that may want or need said domain?

Is there a place or a person that one could go to and hire to represent the name to these companies in order to secure a solid deal?

It seems to me that simply listing it on a service that relies completely on those potential buyers coming and searching for your name.

Any suggestions?

A lot of the bigger brokering services/people do talk to their contacts in each respective industry (something you may not have). Furthermore, birds of a feather block together - if you read the earlier post about TRAFFIC, big names do talk to each other, and brokering names amongst them is not an unusual event. The problem of course is finding a broker connected to the specific market you are after.

Good domains are magnets: The better the domain the more that naturally interested parties will find there way to your door. A good domain will absolutely broker itself - no agent need apply - all you need to do is to get a good idea of value.

IF it's any good the domain will have significant natural type-in traffic, so park it as many buyers will want to see traffic stats and will want to validate those stats.

A domain that is "that good" - that is not associated with an active website - will receive dozens of inquiries a year (and more).

Take a look at the reported sales at DNJournal and see who played a role in the sales. That will give you an idea of who the steady players are. Start there.

I found once such company this afternoon (through reviewing many, many posts on this site) that actually picked up the phone and spoke with me. They described the process and the resales industry and it was of great help.

I appreciate any further help or advice. This is my first and probably only forray into this market so ANY help is appreciated.

Without really thanking any one in particular, I am thankful that I stumbled across the Webmater World to help sort through these kinds of questions.

What a great site!
