Symphony.com sold by AbdulBasit.com for $375,000

Symphony.com-sold-by-AbdulBasit.com-for-$375000Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

At this great moment, my heartiest thanks to Almighty ALLAH (The Most Merciful and Beneficent) who always strengthen me with firm belief and right guidance, and thanks to my family as well, they are always a great support specially my father who brought me in this business.

AbdulBasit.com sold Symphony.com for US$375,000, a great milestone is crossed as I was hoping to achieve this goal in current year. This domain was registered since 1997.

Credit to Frank Schilling for making great platform in the shape of DomainNameSales.com and the entire team for doing great job all time. This domain was brokered by Jessica Ebanks of DomainNameSales.com. She did fantastically well in closing this deal successfully and is one of the best domain brokers I have ever worked with. The buyer approached us and gave their initial offer in high five figures. After exchanging several emails we were able to wrap up this deal swiftly through Escrow.com.

I wish all the best to the new owner of Symphony.com and hope to see something big coming up.
