Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

The real estate industry brings Linda in touch with many people over the course of completing a transaction on the sale or purchase of a home. Since beginning her real estate career in 1979, she has realized more and more opportunities to be of service on a personal level with various worthwhile organizations, in addition to helping sellers and buyers.

 Melanoma Research Foundation

Linda and her daughter Michelle joined up with the Melanoma Research Foundation and participated in the Miles For Melanoma Walk at the Wilmington Riverfront. After losing a long time client/friend to Melanoma, Linda felt this was a great cause to support. On a brighter note, her son in law (Michelle’s husband Scott) is a Melanoma survivor after receiving treatment in 1998.


Over and above these commitments, she also supports:

  • Fraxa Reasearch Foundation   – An organization whose mission is to is to accelerate progress toward effective treatments and a cure for Fragile X, the most common inherited cause of mental impairment and the most common known cause of autism.

  • The Autism Society of Delaware   – A group that aims to improve the lives of people with autism and their families and promote public awareness.

  • Supporting Kidds   – Organization that is dedicated to helping grieving children and their families after the loss of a loved one.
