The Lifetime Achievement Award is only given to a member in good standing who has been with the Association for a minimum of 25 years. This year’s recipient, Barbara Wolcott, has been a dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive member of the REALTOR® Association at all levels.

Barbara has been a member of this association for almost 50 years, serving on the Board of Directors, chairing HRRPAC fundraising twice, chairing multiple committees and councils and ultimately serving as chair of the Board of Directors in 1988. She also was awarded the local Broker of the Year award in 1987.

Her service to HRRA was just the beginning of her dedication to our industry. She continued to serve on the local level while rising up through the ranks at the State and National level. She served as VAR Board of Directors President in 1996 and earned the Virginia REALTOR® of the Year in 1988. At Nar, she served on many committees including Strategic Planning, Legislative, Issues Mobilization and many more.

Beyond her work in the real estate business, Barbara also serves as a leader in our community. She has been recognized for her work with several non-profit organizations for children with disabilities and our active duty and retired military members. Most recently, Barbara was recognized for her combination of business and civic contributions by being awarded The Inside Business 2016 Women in Business Achievement Award.

We congratulate and thank Barbara for all her hard work and dedication to the association. Her knowledge of the industry and faithfulness to her peers has continued to create an environment of professionalism and strength.
