I’m extra excited to announce our newest VARbuzz contributor, Matt Wilkins from Lake Ridge. What makes Matt so special is that he opened his own real estate brokerage at age 26, making him a Generation Y broker. And, well, you may have noticed that there aren’t a whole lot of those around.

He runs his business differently than many other brokers: For example, he doesn’t currently want to bring on any agents because he can be just as efficient (or moreso) by putting technology to work for him instead (and besides, software programs and smartphones don’t suck the life out of you like some agents can). His bread and butter business is not in traditional agency, and Matt definitely knows his tech toys. Oh, and you can meet him at VAR’s Convention & Expo 2008.

So, ladies and gentlemen, please give a warm VARbuzz welcome to Matt Wilkins!
