Mike Berkens has sold a lot of “longer” domains for a lot more money than most expected.
Over the years I have had people ask me, “How does he do it ?” I would say being a skilled negotiator and rich enough to always say no, top the list.
I decided to take a look at some of Mike’s best sales for phrases that are three words or more. This is not a complete list.
