Top Ten Real Estate Domain Names

Perfect Ten

Is your URL a Perfect 10?

Thanks to Renee Burrows (whose name I consistently spell completely wrong) and her shackdiva.com domain name, I got to thinking about URLs and what I liked about various real estate domain names.  Some are funny or witty, some define the real estate agent that owns them, and some create a whole universe around them.  Acquiring a domain name can be a fun process (and it can be hellish when every good idea you dream up seems to be owned already) and selecting the right one can make a huge difference.  Finding a domain name that is memorable can boost your traffic and help you build "brand awareness."

With that in mind, I created my Top Ten Real Estate Domain Names list at RErockstar.com.  Stop by and check them out and if you have some suggestions for other great domain names, leave them in the comments.  I'm thinking I might make it a semi-regular contest, what do you think?

That looks like a good list.  They sound exciting without even looking at them.

Cool list.  I like the Real Estate Zebra one, really catchy.  One of my domains is: www.justcallmichael.com and it seems to work fairly well.  I like your contest idea!

We have a local company that created www.renoeNVy.com that is pretty catchy (not real estate related  but they have a great product). Now there is a RealEstateeNVy.com and I think a local lender has copied the eNVy theme as well. I guess when you create such a cool domain it is bound to be copied.

Renee gets a thumbs up from me for here shackdiva.com domain. When you know Renee, shackdiva really fits her!!

There are a few names I will not forget either! I have been battling with getting a catchy name but not doing good. I guess that is because I am the only Artsy-fartsie person in my hang out group. All my artsy-fartsie friends moved very far away...sure do miss them.

Maybe I should write a post and ask for ideas...what do you think?

Some big hitters there with Ines and Theresa...brings up the chicken/egg theory.  Are there domains' that big or did thea authors make them that big?

Nice post, Matt! I've always liked housechick.com. I wonder when the domain name expires? I might be able to snipe it!

Cheers,

Robin

Great list, Matt. My fav is ShackDiva and I even told Renee that the other day. It's awesome. Another good one is www.johnkerryisadouchebagbutimvotingforhimanyway.com  It's a little long but I got a kick out of it.

I bought CallMargaret.com a few years ago - it's okay but not catchy, not standout, just normal.  I've been racking my brain - yours, BTW, is excellent.

Matt-I'm just starting to look for a new domain name, Yikes!  I should maybe crowdsource this on AR. Thanks for the post.
