  1. That was a great sale.
    Good thing I have e.estate. :)

  2. It seems the buyer is a (wealthy) lady from the Principality of Monaco 😉

      I am pretty sure she wants my LuxuryEstates.net too but I am holding out for 7-8 figures, I think we can all agree .net has not yet reached it’s full potential…

    Well that didn’t take long. Premium New G’s are gaining traction and remain very friendly to domain investor’s.

    I think it’s a bullshit sale. The whois phone number is Russian and the address is to the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco.

    I don’t believe this sale at all. An easy way to prop up gTLD values to make them look good to domain investors.

    Why isn’t this story plastered all over TheDomains, DomainNameWire, DomainInvesting etc…..

    Why? Because it’s bullshit.

    • The phone number is Russian and it corresponds to a Russian company called ООО Лоттос групп (Lottos grupp), whose owner seems the lady I mentioned, Valery Otto, see below:
      Lottos LLC groups
      Country: Russian Federation
      Region: Moscow Region
      City: Moscow
      postcode: 119019
      address: Novy Arbat street, d 21
      phone: +7 (925) 770-70-70
      Head/Owner: Otto Valery

      The Fairmont Monte Carlo Hotel, as far as I see, is located at 12, Avenue des Spélugues, while the reportedly buyer address is 19, Avenue des Spélugues.

      I have no idea if this address is true or not … or what/who we can find there … I should go there and check personally to be sure :)
      And I don’t know if this lady is Russian or not … or even if she’s a real person or not …
      As far as I know, many wealthy Russians own homes in Monte Carlo.

      That said, one of the ways to be sure this sale is true is having a substantial evidence, as, for ex, an Escrow statement.
      I just quickly checked a few things, but IMHO a more in-depth investigation is needed to verify if the sale is true or bogus … 😉

  6. P.S.
    Owen Frager is saying here (http://fragerfactor.blogspot.it/2014/07/seller-of-luxuryestate-was-young.html) that Jessica Ye, based in Cambridge , MA, was the seller of Luxury.Estate (which she reportedly hand regged) … then I’m wondering why, according to historical Whois, the owner, as of Feb 10, 2014, looks Robert Green of a company called Bizi Mojo LLC, located in San Francisco, CA (see below) …
    did this domain change hands 2 times or what? …

  7. Andrea,
    Go Daddy had a bug in the early stages of EAP backordering.
    It was displaying the wrong owner for a few hours.
    I had it in all my domains there.
    Then it was allocated to the owners account and the whois was update.
    Here is the later whois I have:
