In Memory of John Carter
Often the brightest, most colourful personality in the room with pocket squares to match, Senior Sales Consultant and Auctioneer John Carter was an exceptional gentleman who will not soon be forgotten. John was larger than life - both in his prolific 27 year tenure in real estate as well as within his community and the St Kilda hockingstuart team. His untimely passing was a great loss for the countless friends, family members, colleagues and clients who have been reflecting on the impact he has made on their lives.
John will be remembered for his remarkable presence - whether it was an appointment, client meeting, auction or simply walking into the office in the morning. He always noticed simple details and uplifted people with his generous and sincere compliments.
“John’s consistency was something to be admired, he had a genuine ability to show continual kindness to everyone. He shared his happiness with us which made us love him unconditionally. He had a heart full of love, light and passion and he will be missed terribly.” - Rebecca Berry, Property Manager
One fond anecdote that showcases John’s fantastic wit was shared by colleague and close friend John Manning, Director: “Years ago, John Carter was auctioning a big block of flats for close to $3.5M. There was a brief lull in the bidding when a cement truck went by and John quickly declared with great humour, ‘Now is the time to cement this deal!’ John was extremely successful as an unstoppable force in his most recent years, landing him in the Top 10 of the network. He loved his work and it absolutely showed.”
“His warm smile and cheer never missing. Always ready to encourage the team or anyone feeling down for the day. Always on standby for a quick-witted joke and pointing out the hilarious in the mundane. We will miss your happy self, bursting through the office winning everyone’s heart.” - Sam Inan, Director
John is survived by his wife Rebecca Carter and his best mate Charlie the German Shepherd. He leaves a rich legacy from his career as well as the numerous impressions he made on all the people he touched during his lifetime.
You will be missed greatly, John. Thank you for bringing such radiance, colour, joy and humour to our lives.
