2019 Good Neighbor Award – Linda Wolf
Linda Wolf, a Realtor® with Keller Williams Realty, is the recipient of the 2019 NVAR Good Neighbor Award. The award celebrates and recognizes a remarkable member who has made a great difference in the lives of others.
Wolf, who has been a Realtor® for 23 years, has contributed over 300 unpaid hours and raised over $167,000 to benefit The Walter Reed Society, Mission M4. The Walter Reed Society makes a difference for the critically ill children of the military and their families by improving the patient experience.
Among her many outstanding contributions to The Walter Reed Society, Wolf secured the first In-Bore System for the children’s radiology unit at Walter Reed. This system, at a cost of $50,000 per installation, helps the child cope with the experience of the MRI process by allowing him or her to watch a movie during the scan. Wolf has raised funds to purchase a second system that is in the approval process for Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii, and she is currently working to gain approval for the system to be installed in 100 military hospitals around the country.
“What started with an annual ice cream party for her clients to collect toys for sick children has grown into a major project that already affects about 2,300 children a year at Walter Reed alone,” said Senator Pat Roberts in a letter supporting Wolf’s nomination. “That number will easily increase when the system is installed at Tripler. Optimistic about approval, there is no limit to the number of children and adults that will benefit from her efforts in the future.”
