selling-domain-names for Sale

I received an interesting call yesterday from someone who wanted to know if I was going to SES in New York because she wanted to talk to companies that might be interested in buying a domain name she owned.

My response without knowing the domain name was, “Thanks but no thanks”. Then she shared that it was, which was interesting, but not for me.

I am curious what a domain name like would go for? Who would buy it? I guess another logical question is, “Is really for sale?”. The whois info shows a holding company in NYC which is different than the info the person gave me on the phone.

If any other SEO firm received the same call and that did some due dilligence, please leave a comment.
