I’ll give you three guesses.

Nope. Nope. Nope.

It’s Bob Carney, blogs extensively at FocusOnFrederick and is known to the Virginia REALTOR® Twitterazzi as simply GotBob. He’s from Frederick. No, not Fredericksburg, but Frederick. As in Frederick, Maryland.

I can hear it now, “Oh, great! VAR takes its convention to Baltimore, and now we have a contributor from Maryland on VARbuzz. Next thing ya know, those crazy varmints at VAR will be moving their offices to Annapolis!”

Hardly! Sure, the real estate profession has its nuances from state to state, but all REALTORS®, no matter where they work, encounter many of the same issues. And with Frederick located within the footprint of MRIS and the greater Washington DC market, Bob will have plenty of relevant perspectives to share with us Virginians.

Bob is an alumni of Virginia Real Estate Bloggercon 2.0 (yes, he braved a Potomac River crossing for it), an avid social media marketer, and you might even get to meet him at VAR’s Convention & Expo 2008 (leave lots of comments on his first post begging him to come).

Please show Bob some Virginia hospitality and welcome him as VARbuzz’s newest contributor!
