I checked eBay, and it just looks like a big spammers mess. A Google search turned up a few places, but I can't tell which ones are reputable with a track record of successful sales and which ones are just trying to get a fee for a listing that will never be seen by anyone serious.
Are there individual brokers who do this sort of thing one-on-one?
I know that posting web addresses is a problem with Webmaster World, so if you're recommending some site or some person specifically, you might want to contact me by PM.
How about you transfer the domain and when they are satisfied that everything is okay, then they pay you?
The point of escrow type transaction is that neither side is likely to be stupid enough to trust the other. Hence, a reputable 'middle man' with no stake in either side.
I listed the domain for sale with Sedo, and that's been a disaster. I would avoid Sedo if you're thinking about selling something.
I applied to Sedo on October 19th. October 21st I got an e-mail saying my application was approved and a "senior broker" would be in touch with me shortly. It never happened.
November 3rd I inquired with the customer support ticket system and received a reply the same day from someone who said they'd specifically instructed my broker to contact me. Three days later -- still nothing.
I have one more web site I'm going to put up for sale, and I can tell you this -- it won't be with Sedo.
If they don't see any value in my business, fine, tell me that and I'll be on my way. But don't tell me someone will contact me (TWICE!) and then don't. That's not just bad customer service, it's a bad business practice, and it's also rude.
