The London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR) recently presented its Quality of Life Award to Past LSTAR president Mike Carson.
LSTAR’s president Barb Whitney says, “From being active in Keep London Growing, to advocating for affordable housing, to raising awareness about the dangers of asbestos-tainted vermiculite insulation, to chairing the 2001OHF Provincial Hockey Championships . . . and more, Mike hit every mark and then some. His is a remarkable record of service and achievement and we are very proud of him.”
Realtors Ken Topping and Joe Hough received the association’s prestigious Lyn Coupland Outstanding Service Award.
“We all know the kind of difference a great teacher can make not only in his students’ lives, but also the contribution he can make to their future success,” says Whitney. Ken Topping is just such a teacher.” In addition to being a Realtor, Topping has served as an Ontario Real Estate Association certified instructor for over a quarter of a century, helping thousands of students to navigate the ins and outs of residential real estate.
As “an early adopter and ardent technophile, Joe Hough feels right at home with technology,” says Whitney. “Not only has he been an avid supporter of our association’s every effort to embrace technology for the past 26 years, he has also been willing to put his time and effort where his mouth is to make that happen.”
