Another Blockbuster for Kate Buckley! Buckley Media Group Closes 7-Figure Sale of eBike.com 

Buckley Media Group, one of the world’s top boutique premium domain name brokerages, has just closed another blockbuster sale. The firm, founded by CEO Kate Buckley, brokered a $1,008,900 sale of the domain name eBike.com to Robert Bosch GmbH. Bosch operates Bosch eBike Systems as well as COBI.Bike

Kate has closed so many marquee sales over the years she is practically a permanent resident in the upper reaches of our domain charts. With eBike.com, Buckley Media now has one of five biggest domain sales reported so far this year (we will be adding it to our YTD Top 100 Chart when do our next bi-weekly domain sales report July 7).

Ms. Buckley said, “eBike.com was created in 1998 and purchased by my client, Legendary Names, Inc., at auction in 2018. They approached Buckley Media after receiving several unsolicited offers to acquire the domain name. Legendary Names researched brokerages who were known for achieving legendary results with domain names and ultimately signed with Buckley Media."

A statement from Legendary Names said, "When our partner Reza Sardeha from DAN pointed us

to the opportunity of acquiring ebike.com in an expired domains auction, he stated: ‘that's a domain worth $400K sitting right there.’ And it would've indeed been a $400K sale if it wasn't for Kate's persistence and vision, chasing high-quality buyers and not letting the domain go for less than what it's truly worth: one million dollars. Well done, Kate!”  The ROI Kate achieved on this sale is especially remarkable as Legendary paid just $71,938 to win the expired name auction for eBike.com at DropCatch in February 2018!

conference in Las Vegas.

Buckley added, “Developing the sales and marketing outreach on eBike.com was a lot of fun. Particularly since others in the industry kept telling me it was too generic to sell for more than low six figures, and that I was crazy for sticking to my guns at seven figures. Nothing I love more than a good challenge. I believed in eBike from the beginning—it is truly the future of mobility, and in the future will be worth eight figures, if not more. Bosch had the vision to understand this in spades, and were the perfect end user for this valuable category-killer domain name. I look forward to seeing it put to its best and highest utility.”  

Kate has been getting eye-popping results for two decades now. Buckley Media Group has brokered millions of dollars in both private and publicly-recorded top sales. She credits "an experienced team, known for its ethical, professional approach to domain services, exemplary customer service and strong, authentic relationships inside and outside the domain industry, startup industry, and established corporate universe, that provides targeted, attentive outreach and stellar service to our valued clientele," for the firm's consistent success.
