Now why did I post about them?

I decided to check if Maple.com was officially for sale yet.
I had previously placed an offer on that domain for 200k USD.


Looks like the brokerage is asking 500k minimum

Now the silly part about this is they are using a frame to redirect maple.com which means the URL stays in the address bar while you navigate the entire brokerage site. That is so old school and definitely not something I would recommend.


Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title>maple.com</title>
<link rel="icon" href="http://vipbrokerage.com/favicon.ico">
</head>

<frameset>
    <frame src="http://vipbrokerage.com/maple/" name="redir">

    <noframes>
      

Original location:
        [url="http://vipbrokerage.com/maple/"]http://vipbrokerage.com/maple/[/url]
      </p>
    </noframes>
</frameset>

That is Mark Thomas's brokerage. He's legit broker, used to work at Domain Holdings. I haven't done much work with him, but he's a known entity.

I wonder if he owns the domain or is just brokering it.

I don't think anyone has ever offered as much as I did at 200k

And $500K is just the minimum.

I recently offered a few grand for a middling .COM (not a word, multiple word or anything, just a random 6-letter pronounceable I liked) and the counter came back at $1,125,000 USD.

Yeah... okay... good luck with that buddy.
