@Coolidge , welcome to the community! This is a great question as there are so many different services available to assist in obtaining domains. If it is truly expired then broker services will not help. If the domain is still "owned" by a party then a Godaddy broker would try to contact the owner and find out if they would be willing to sell it and try to work out a deal with them. I have included a video and article that goes over what happens when a domain expires. This will help you determine if you should look at a domain back order or see if it is available at auction. Hopefully this helps!
