Domain name purchase - via broker (domainmarket.com) - Is this safe?

Hi,
A client is about to purchase a domain name for a relatively significant amount and they have requested from me whether it's safe to do so. The broker (I guess) is:

http://www.domainmarket.com/

I'm basically doing as much research as possible to ensure this company is reputable and that the transaction will be safe and they will actually get full control of the domain name.

Does anyone have any input on this?

Domain Market is one of many companies owned by Mike Mann; http://www.mikemann.com/

Interview: http://www.cnet.com/news/meet-the-mann-who-registered-14962-domains-in-24-hours/

How legit it is, is hard to say on the internet, however he's been doing this for ages and not fulfilling his orders would have send him out of business a long time ago I'd say.
