This morning on Twitter, Rick Schwartz announced his plans to open a domain name brokerage. Based on some of the hashtags and prior tweets, it would not surprise me if he launched a brand called Game Changing Domains with the matching GameChangingDomains.com domain name:
I will be having a major announcement about a new #DomainBrokerage firm I am opening up VERY SOON!!
It’s gonna be a Game Changer!!

The domain name brokerage space is fairly crowded with many experienced domain brokers. Rick has sold many millions of dollars worth of his own domain names, and he certainly presents his own way of negotiating.
Based on my observations, Rick appears to be unwilling to settle for anything less than the best possible offers for his domain names. This likely means Rick turns down some great offers that most of us would find irresistible. It will be interesting to see how Rick might reconcile his desire to get the absolute most money possible with client interests in selling for a great price, as these two numbers could be far apart.
It’s interesting that Rick appears to be interested in offering brokerage services to other domain investors. I look forward to see how this evolves.
