Kate Buckley Closes Half-Million Dollar Sale of Refi.com - Now Has Two of Year's Top Three Sales

Domain broker Kate Buckley, Founder/Principal at the Buckley Media Group, is on a hot streak that shows no signs of cooling off. Regular readers will recall that in the spring of 2016 Kate brokered the $725,000 sale of Rate.com that wound up being one of last year's 10 biggest sales. This year also got off to a great start for her when she handled the $300,000 sale of Advance.com to Advance Publications, Inc. (a privately held American media company that counts Condé Nast among its holdings). 

Today we got word that Kate has brokered yet another six-figure blockbuster, orchestrating the $500,000 sale of Refi.com to a group of mortgage entrepreneurs led by Ryan Herman, Founder and Co-CEO of First Direct Lending. With Advance.com this deal gives Kate two of 2017's three biggest sales to date

Ms. Buckley, who represented the seller of Refi.com, told us,  "My client is a private

individual who had the vision to register the domain in the early 90s. He followed the market, knew the value of ultra-premium .coms and, when he was ready to sell, reached out to Buckley Media Group to find the right end user, and negotiate desirable terms.”

Mr. Herman said, “In a changing interest rate environment it’s even more important that we continue to inform and educate customers on how effective refinance loans of all types can be to ensure smart family finances. Customers should have an easy, elegant path to the wonderful companies across the spectrum of loan types that provide exceptional service in both conventional and technology platforms. We feel Refi.com is the perfect domain platform to make that happen.”

Ms. Buckley added, “I worked with the buyers to negotiate terms and facilitate a smooth transaction. They immediately understood the value of the domain. They were a pleasure to do business with in every way, and I look forward to them putting this authoritative, legacy domain to its highest and best use."
