Wichita State alumnus Steve Clark is the 2010 recipient of the Kansas CCIM chapter and WSU Center for Real Estate Lifetime Achievement Award.
In 1960, Clark became the youngest licensed real estate salesperson in Kansas, at age 18. Since that time he has been active as an appraiser, licensed general contractor, property manager and developer of offices, homes, hotels, retail, apartments and industrial facilities, as well as multi-state fast food outlets.
He has developed more than 2,000 apartment units, more than 3.5 million square feet of industrial properties and managed more than 3,000 homes and multi-family units.
For several years he conducted seminars on the economics of real estate investments, having spoken before more than 10,000 people at national conventions, colleges, civic groups and various trade organizations in more than 20 states and Canada.
He has been featured as a syndicated real estate columnist for American City Business Journals, which publishes business papers in 36 cities.
He is a past president of the Wichita Area Association of Realtors and the Kansas CCIM Chapter.
In 1976, he received the Wichita Realtor of the Year award, and in 1983 was recognized by the Kansas Association of Realtors with their Distinguished Service Award.
In 1985, he was chosen by the Kansas Association of Realtors as the Kansas Realtor of the Year. He has also served as a national director for the National Association of Realtors and was on the Board of Directors of the Kansas Association of Realtors for more than 10 years.
In addition, Clark has served on a variety of corporate and community boards, giving generously of both his time and talents.
