Such a prestigious award is considered a principal career honor.
This award comes as no surprise as the award honors contributions in the real estate profession and markets in Virginia over a period of twenty five years or more, and Ms. Barbara Wolcott has accomplished this and much more!
Ms. Wolcott has been a licensed real estate professional since 1970 and has held numerous leadership positions in VAR, serving as president in 1996. She has also served in the National Association of REALTORS® as a national director and as chair of the Tidewater Association of REALTORS® (now known as the Hampton Roads REALTORS® Association). Ms. Wolcott has served as the President of the Real Estate Information Network (REIN). In 1991, she was selected as an Outstanding Professional Business Woman of Hampton Roads.
Throughout her career, Ms. Wolcott has been committed to community service. She initiated the local PRU Cares Day (now Caring Around Towne), a company wide effort that has raised more than $200,000 in goods and services for charitable organizations across Southeast Virginia. In addition, her extensive community involvement has included the TowneBank Board of Directors, The American Cancer Society Executive Board, Wetlands Board, Junior Women’s Club of Virginia Beach, The United Way Campaign, and Governor’s Appointee to the Rights for the Disabled State Board.
